It is unfortunate that the young girl died, however, she did put herself in harms way. The media is having a field day with this as usual. Too bad they don't seem to care as much about the Israeli's who have died at the hands of these Pali terrorist animals.

Evidently she wouldn't move, so the IDF moved her. Being naive does not give you the freedom to interfere in someone else's conflict and not expect to get roughed up. Just ask a policeman about the joys of breaking up domestic squabbles. He'd just as soon avoid them. Young Rachel should have stayed home.

From the news: Corrie, 23, a student at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, died Sunday in the Gaza Strip city of Rafah while trying to stop a bulldozer from tearing down a Palestinian physician’s home. She fell in front of the machine, which ran over her and backed up, witnesses said.

Who was the physician who house the bulldozer was destroying?

His name was in the news but I forget

What was the crime the doctor had convicted for that his house being destroyed?

I don't know. Rafah is a Gaza refugee camp right on the Egyptian border. There are many tunnels used for arms smuggling and Israel is often down there demolishing tunnels and arresting gun smugglers. There's often gunfire. Houses have been condemned/demolished that have been used for arms smuggling

Egypt turns a blind eye to this weapons smuggling. There are allegations the Egyptian army assists it.

The doctor's house was empty, vacated, on the list to be demolished. Not all doctors are angels. Dr. Rantisi is the head of Hamas.

"Dr. Rantisi is the head of Hamas."

That's a very important point. They don't just bulldoze houses, because it's cool. They bulldoze them, because they housed killers and their associates. The media won't mention this. This nitwit was attempting to stand in the way of the destruction of the Hamas leaders den. She was their ally and supporter of the homicide bombing campaign.

If you look at those pictures, those are two different bulldozers. It looks like the post-crushing photo may have been staged for propaganda. If she was killed by the bulldozer in the photo where she is standing, why is there a different bulldozer in the death scene. It looks like they threw down a red coat and faked the second photo. She was probably actually killed in a different location.

Welcome to the club! As I said on another thread, I am disgusted by 95% of sanctimonious posturing on these threads! The tasteless jokes will fly out there whether or not anybody here postures with their holier than thou piousness! It's best to chill out!

Does anyone remember Amy Biehl?

Vaguely! She was killed by thugs who thought she was a white South African.
