In an e-mail to her family on Feb. 7, two weeks after her arrival in the Gaza Strip, Rachel Corrie wrote that "no amount of reading, attendance at conferences, documentary viewing . . . could have prepared me for the reality of the situation here."

But "she wasn't a radical extremist," he said. "She wasn't someone who would participate in protests for the thrill of it. She wasn't reckless."

yeah. right. it isn't reckless to sit down in front of a bulldozer. not at all. good clean fun is all...

"I am just beginning to learn from what I expect to be a very intense tutelage," she wrote, "about the ability of people to organize against all odds, and to resist against all odds."

I guess she didn't learn quick enough!

Yeah, it took a bulldozer to do that.

The young lady was ideological dope, but running her over with a bulldozer is a bit sadistic IMHO.

Corrie's parents, Craig and Cynthia Corrie of Charlotte, N.C., released a statement saying they "are proud Rachel was able to live her convictions.

Sounds like Mr. and Mrs. Lewinsky

Tough break for her I guess, but she was enabling violent terrorist and paid the price for them. If she knows the truth now she will realize she gave her life to protect scum who kill Jewish children without pause.

Martyr, Ironic that is also the reference to Palistineans who tie bombs around themselves and blow up a bus full of teenagers

And here is another. these are genuine, actually of her, showing Palestinian children how to burn American flags. There appear to be none of her showing how to lubricate tank treads.

"Rachel was filled with love and a sense of duty to her fellow man wherever they lived, and she gave her life trying to protect those who are unable to protect themselves," they said.

No. She admitted on a TV interview that her group had merely been able to delay the destruction of terrorist homes long enough for them to "remove some furniture" SO actually she gave her life trying to protect some crappy used furniture. What a dumbass.

"committed peace activist"

Perhaps she should have left off the "peace activist part" and simply been "committed". She'd be alive now, wouldn't she? Flag burning B----

A very astute headline, IMO.

Very unfortunate. This little idiot may have eventually grown up and made something of herself.

Now all she gets for her trouble is her own funeral and her name printed on a bunch of anti-war signs.

Ms Corrie - "If you can understand people who are different than you, you can help resolve the conflict."

I can see how well this theory worked for her.....

I do feel badly for her and her family that it ended this way.

It's a little late for a recall, she's already dead. The proper time for a recall would have been last week.

Too bad nobody will remember her a week from today.

She died for a worthless cause, just like so many misguided young people.

Prayers for her parents who are probably distraught and depressed.

I think it is incredibly stupid what she did...but I think it's even worse that people are laughing about someone getting run over by a bulldozer.

As much as it disgusts me to see her burn an American flag...I wouldn't wish death on someone because she's a ignroant winch. If that was the case I would want to see alot of people run over with heavy equipment.

I'm not trying to step on toes here, but in my opinion it is wrong to get a good laugh at someone getting crushed by a bulldozer. Oh well, guess I figured I'd speak up...just my opinion though...

Well... maybe not all odds.
