The parents of a pro-Palestinian activist who died during a protest in Gaza 2003 have arrived in Haifa to pursue a civil court case against the state of Israel.
The second stage of the Rachel Corrie case opened yesterday in Haifas district court. The American activist died aged 23 in March 2003 after being crushed by an IDF bulldozer.
She had come to Rafah at the height of the Palestinian intifada with the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, to demonstrate against the demolition of houses.
An Israeli military investigation into what happened said that Ms Corrie had died during an armed conflict and that the Israeli soldiers were not to blame. It also claimed negligence on Ms Corries part.
It found that the bulldozer driver had not seen Ms Corrie as she had been hidden from view by dirt the machine had thrown up. She was struck by slabs of concrete, which killed her.
Cindy and Craig Corrie of Olympia, Washington, claim that the investigation was not comprehensive enough and that their daughters death was intentional.
Their lawyer, Hussein Abu Hussein, said: "It is clear that the army investigation was very far from being sufficient, thorough or impartial."
In 2007 the Corries tried to sue bulldozer manufacturer Caterpillar. They said the company knew that it sold the bulldozers to Israel for human rights violations.
Being a dumbass has its consequences sometimes.
So does being brainwashed by the left.
Lying down in front of bulldozers tends to flatten you out.
Let’s hope the judge squashes this suit.
Israel should sue the scumbags that raised her to be a Idiot and terrorist trainee.
“If it pleases the Court, I would like to ask Mr. Bulldozer to cross-examine the parents”.
With parents like that the kid never stood a chance other than to be a brain dead moonbat lying down in front of a BULLDOZER!!! Sheeze...
“Lying down in front of bulldozers tends to flatten you out.”
Yes bulldozer breaks Rock.Paper.and Scissors also.
Rachel Corrie’s parents would improve the gene pool by emulating their late airhead leftist daughter not only in political mantras but by submitting to pancakization by bulldozer. That would also be two fewer votes for Senator Murray if they act fast enough.
Dave Ramsey has a book for kids called “Battle of the Chores” which starts out with a brother and sister arguing because the brother ran over the sister’s “Darbie” with his bulldozer.
I always add in a line from “Junior”: “But Mom! I was just playing Rachel Corrie!”
The chillins’ have no idea, but it’s funny when the libinlaws are over...
Wow. That’s crushed flat as a “Rachel Corrie”
My tire hit a nail and went “Rachel Corrie”
I hear their evidence supporting their case is quite thin.
I heard a rumor that the parents were planning on suing CATERPILLAR for making the bulldozer that squashed that vermin child.
so she was an enemy combatant...
Note the name of their alleged LAWYER!!!
Idiot moonbat goy should have stayed in Washington State and focused on ballot tampering, spotted owl, removing dams or making hemp clothing like the rest of the moonbats.
