Rachel Corrie case opens in Haifa
JEWISH CHRONICLE ONLINE ^ | September 6, 2010 | Jennifer Lipman

Posted on 09/08/2010 1:46:04 PM PDT by matt1234

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 Haifa’s 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 Corrie’s 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 daughter’s 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 Corrie’s 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.

Flat out.

Lying down in front of bulldozers tends to flatten you out.

I really hope they will eventually come to terms with the fact that their daughter was an idiot of the highest order.

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...

I can see it now. The bailiff hands the judge an envelope with the jury verdict but quickly realizes that it's the wrong one and he accidentally handed him Rachel Corrie.

Cindy and Craig Corrie of Olympia, Washington, claim that the investigation was not comprehensive enough and that their daughter’s death was intentional.

Here is a good example of people leading empty lives with nothing better to do than to seek to blame others for their blind stupidity. The parents apparently fail to see their role in the foolish and tragic behavior of their daughter. They fail to see the result of their daughter's misguided idealism.

IMO her behavior was baseless, hateful, and ignorant of the history and causes of the conflict in the Middle East. She was on the wrong side of the conflict and on the blind side of the heavy equipment, like her useless parents.

“Here is a good example of people leading empty lives with nothing better to do than to seek to blame others for their blind stupidity.”

Respectfully, I differ. How about:
Here is a good example of people leading empty lives with nothing better to do than to seek to blame others and try to sue for money they are not due because of their own, and their daughters’, blind stupidity.

Rachel Corrie (to the tune of Richard Cory)

They say that Rachel Corrie has been flattened to the ground
With Palestinian connections, she now looks like ground round.
Born into liberality, a Commie couple’s wayward child,
She had everything a nut could want: burka, back hair, scowl.

But I…I work for posterity
And I bless the life I'm living
And I bless prosperity
And I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be
Flat like Rachel Corrie.

The papers print her picture almost everywhere she goes:
Rachel Corrie at the Intifada, Rachel Corrie makes a show.
And the nature of her politics and the jihad bug she's caught.
Oh, she surely must be happy with everything she's got.

But I…I work for posterity
And I bless the life I'm living
And I bless prosperity
And I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be
Flat like Rachel Corrie.

She freely gave to terrorists, she had the Muzzie touch,
And they were grateful for her patronage and thanked her very much.
So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read:
“Rachel Corrie went to protest last night…and a ‘dozer squished her flat instead.”

But I…I work for posterity
And I bless the life I'm living
And I bless prosperity
And I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be
Flat like Rachel Corrie.
