Rachel Corrie Spotted with Che and Mumia

rachel150.jpg The Mission District in San Francisco is my new home. There are murals blossoming everywhere in this neighborhood that depict uplifting images of global struggles. The walls are covered with breathtaking images of nature, triumphant women of color, ancient cultures, community pride and all the modern heroes of social change.

It came to me as no surprise that a freshly painted Rachel Corrie had joined the ranks of Caesar Chavez and Malcolm X as the young hero of the downtrodden. In this mural she is seen lending her strength and beauty to the struggles of Che Guevara and Mumia Abu Jamal and a host of others.

breaksilencelogo.jpg Images of kafiyyah clad men and women have long adorned the walls and facades of such prominent San Francisco landmarks as the Women’s Building. The most famous of these murals is the one painted by Break the Silence Mural and Arts Project

Break the Silence began 12 years ago when four Jewish American artists traveled to the West Bank city of Ramallah and worked on a series of community mural projects with Palestinian community members and artists. Upon returning from that first trip in 1989, the artists presented reflections on their experiences to approximately 100 audiences in high schools, universities, art galleries and community centers across the United States.

In 1990, BTS painted a mural in San Francisco about the Palestinian right to a homeland. This mural made connections between issues of "home" in San Francisco's Mission District and in Palestine. In the summer of 2001, the Bay Guardian ran a story about how repeated vandalism had caused the mural to be boarded up.

Look out for Corrie.  Protect her from the "friends of Israel." The first reader to correctly identify the location of the new Rachel Corrie mural will win a small, and probably worthless, prize from Muslim Wakeup. Click on the picture of the BTS mural to see a larger version.

Where are the Rachel Corrie's friends today?? Why are they not in Iran protecting the demonstrators from mullahs?

I think it's because she's a bit run down.

I think it's pressing the point to doze this into the ground...

Who's next for the wall? The American Taliban? Richard Reid (the shoe bomber)? Ted Kazenski?

I know where that mural is. It's on the front of a communist (literally) bookstore on 23rd Street, between Mission and Capp Streets, in San Francisco. I walked by it just a couple of days ago. The images of both Rachel Corrie and Mambolia Whatever had been smashed in and these two youngish females from the commie store were out there repairing them. Sad on many levels. That the store is even there. That they put these two on the front (not to equate the idiot Corrie with the murderer Mambolia, mind you). That someone was enough of a jerk to smash someone elses property (and yes I know these commie scum smash other people's property frequently, but two wrongs, etc...) That these two young, not ugly or stupid-looking women would waste their time on promoting such idiotic politics. Etc. Just sad all around.

I agree on all accounts. Private property is just that, it is to be respected. Also, I condemn the mural damage on the basis of his first amendment rights, and the potential it has for being perceived as a hate crime (it really is).

It's far better to point out how hypocritical Rachel Corrie was, and to show how she and her generation are being duped by CNN propaganda to think that Israelis are the enemies of Arabs. They are their own worst enemies!

In any case, Corrie's surviving comrades would do well to think about the financial motivations for media slant in favor of Muslims. And some day when they're older, they may have an opportunity to remember that American soldiers fought in Iraq and Afghanistan (among other places) to protect their freedom of speech here in America.

They can have these finer debates courtesy of the blood of American soldiers.

Rachel could also join the ranks of potash and guano as fertilizer, and dark lithium grease as lubricant for bulldozer treads. I'll think of her every time I take my truck in for a chassis lube.

But she really got down and dirty for "peace."
