Gee, how will they manage to elevate her to the level of "martyr"? How will they make it the driver's fault so that Israel ultimately becomes responsible? It won't take long.

Her name was Rachel Corey (sp?) from Olympia Washington...sad, yes, but it figures - home to much of the leftcoast anti-America drugged-out, body-pierced, homosexual grunge "music" crowd.

US woman killed by Israeli bulldozer in Gaza (UPDATE)
By THE JERUSALEM POST INTERNET STAFF

An American woman in Gaza to protest against Israeli operations was killed Sunday when she was run over by an Israeli bulldozer, witnesses and hospital officials said.

Witnesses said Rachel Corrie from Olympia, Washington, was trying to stop the bulldozer from tearing down a building in the Rafah refugee camp, when she was buried. She was taken to Najar hospital in Rafah, where she died, said Dr. Ali Moussa, a hospital administrator

Corrie was a member of the International Solidarity Movement. Joseph Smith,21, of Kansas City Missouri, who was with Corrie at the site, said the driver of the bulldozer, an IDF soldier, could clearly see Corrie as she sat in front of the machine. She had sat in its path, some 200 meters away from it, he said. After running her over, Smith said, the bulldozer backed away to a distance of about half a kilometer away.

Smith said another activist, a man, had been wounded by another bulldozer about half an hour beforehand. According to Smith, the driver of the second bulldozer also saw the activist when it ran over him, hurling him into a pile of barbed wire. The man was only lightly wounded, Smith said, but added that this incident must have brought the activists' presence to the attention of the bulldozers' drivers.

"American protester run over by an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza and killed."

You can go to Pamplona and run with the bulls or to Gaza and run with the bulldozers. It's a free choice either way.

American woman peace activist killed by IDF
bulldozer in Gaza
By Arnon Regular, Haaretz Correspondent, and Agencies

An American woman peace protester was killed Sunday by an IDF bulldozer, which ran her over during the demolition of a house in the southern Gaza Strip.

Rachel Corey, 23, was killed when she ran in front of the bulldozer to try to prevent it from destroying a house, doctors in Gaza said.

"Corey was killed in the al-Salam neighbourhood when an
Israeli bulldozer covered her with sand as she stood in front of a bulldozer," said Dr Ali Musa, a doctor from the al-Najar hospital in the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah.

He said she died from skull and chest fractures.

The IDF said it was checking the report.

The Associated Press

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (March 16, 7:17 a.m. AST) - An American woman in Gaza to protest against Israeli operations was killed Sunday when she was run over by an Israeli bulldozer, witnesses and hospital officials said.
Witnesses said Rachel Corrie from Olympia, Washington, was trying to stop the bulldozer from tearing down a building in the Rafah refugee camp, witnesses said, when she was buried. She was taken to Najar hospital in Rafah, where she died, said Dr. Ali Moussa, a hospital administrator.

Groups of international protesters have gathered in several locations in the West Bank and Gaza during two years of Palestinian violence, setting themselves up as "human shields" to try to stop Israeli operations there.

Corrie, 23, was the first member of the protesters, called "International Solidarity Groups," to be killed in the conflict.

Greg Schnabel, 28, from Chicago, a member of the Missouri-based group, said there were eight protesters at the site, four from the United States and four from Great Britain. "We stay with families whose house is to be demolished," he told the Associated Press by telephone from Rafah after the incident.

Smith said the protesters were in the house of Dr. Samir Masri. "Rachel was alone in front of the house as we were trying to get them to stop," he said. "She waved for bulldozer to stop and waved. She fell down and the bulldozer kept going. We yelled 'stop, stop,' and the bulldozer didn't stop at all. It had completely run over her and then it reversed and ran back over her," he said.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment.

Israel sends tanks and bulldozers into the area almost every day, destroying buildings near the Gaza-Egypt border. According to interim peace accords, Israel controls the border area. There are almost daily clashes between Palestinian gunmen and Israeli soldiers in the area.

That's a given.

Morbid humor can be funny but these are the types of threads people point to and say that Freepers are evil, hateful, etc. Overall, that's not true, of course.

Maybe I'm just being to series today.....

Okay, now I'm ready to give the bulldozer driver a medal. I hope this remains IDF policy: run over commies.

It is sad isn't it? But....many of these same freepers love to talk about nuking (frying babies on a massive scale) Bagdad and, before that, Bejing.

Welcome to the new and bloodthirsty Free Republic! I guess the old freeper respect for life and skepticism about power (as expressed on issues such as Waco) have gone down the Freeper Orwellian memory whole for good.
