"Mess with the bull-you get the horns."

And the bulldozer...

Guess she just expected that the Israelis would cave to her stupid little protest, just like we do here in the US when enviro-freakies blow up buildings, spike trees, and vandalize logging equipment.

I'm glad that the Israelis are not letting the antics of a few glassy-eyes lunatics like whats-her-face get in the way of expelling the Moors from Israel so that the Jewish people can finally live in peace.

Note to Rachel: In Gaza heels are a must...flats are such a no-no.

What do you call three Rachel Corries?
The Squishy Chicks.

One point I have to make. To all those who feel sympathy for this dead cretin, take a look at the expression in her eyes.

I'm glad she's split this mortal coil--she looked nuts enough to strap on an explosives belt.

"She should have been burning the "DON'T TREAD ON ME" flag."

LOL

I think she got the gravity of her mistake.

Let's see, yesterday was Protest International's "Douse Yourself in Fake Blood and Pretend to be Dead Day", fake photos of the death scene, she was taken to a Pali hospital, now a mock funeral.

Are we absolutely sure that she is really dead, and not the star of an elaborate street theatre?

Thank you for your contribution and welcome to FR. May I recommend that you read James Taranto's comment on this matter on OpinionJournal.com. Scroll to the bottom of the page. Here's the last sentence from it:

"It's a shame that Rachel Corrie died the way she did. It's shameful that she lived the way she did."

The bulldozer has limited sight because it is armored. She should have stayed out of the way.

"Here's a picture of the accident, posted by her local newspaper, taken by her friends just after the dozer backed away from the building."

Gee, I wonder why they didn't put that picture of her burning the American flag in the hometown photo spread?

"It is. And I am disgusted by 95% of the comments in various threads on this incident."

Whaaa!!

And we're all disgusted that the world is focusing on the death of this twit instead of on the thousands of Jews who have been killed and maimed by the Moors.

"anytime an American is killed by a foreign nation it is cause for rebuke"!!! Okay...then where was the "rebuke" when American students were viciously murdered at Hebrew University last summer? Where was the rebuke when a little American girl was viciously murdered by a Palestinian animal homicide scum bomber a couple of weeks ago? I didn't see any "rebuke" then. DID YOU???

I also hope there are many more in the states, that suports a fair solution of the conflict in the middle east. No such thing to be seen by the present
Israeli dealings.

So if Israel gets out of Gaza and the West Bank the Palestinians will establish a peaceful state or a terrorist state? Muslims are strong believers in Jihad so my bet is a Palestinian state would be terrorist state. You may manage a prison but you are very naive about human nature in the Middle East. About the way Islamic Jihads operate. For Muslims Jihad is eternal. It never ends but it does allow for phony treaties to be signed with the intent of violating them later when one is stronger. This is the doctrine of Mohammed and he did just this in the Koran. Advocated lying and breaking treaties.

 

Of special interest, in this context, are Arafat's repeated references to the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah, signed by the Prophet Muhammad with his Meccan enemies when they were still stronger than him, and then abandoned (as he conquered the city) within a much shorter time than the Treaty itself warranted. The first such reference made public came shortly after the signing of the Interim agreement, in the "Jihad" speech he made at the Mosque in Johannesburg (obtained by the Jewish community, and broadcast in Israel in May 1994).

On various occasions, Arafat continued to use the language of "Jihad", literally a "Struggle", but in the specific (religiously colored) context of the Palestinian struggle, a clear reference to the violent option. Thus, in a eulogy to a Palestinian official - on June 15 1995 (at the height of the Oslo Process) - he paid homage, among others, to two women terrorists (Dalal al-Mughrabi and 'Abir Wahidi); and spoke of the children throwing stones as "the Palestinian Generals". He also swore to his audience (which was clearly sympathetic with the Hamas) that "the oath is firm to continue this difficult Jihad, this long Jihad, in the path of martyrs, the path of sacrifices".

The bulldozer has limited sight because it is armored. She should have stayed out of the way.

The windows are also smaller. And my guess reinforced as much as possible to guard against a lucky 50 caliber bullet, RPG or rocket. Imagine the propaganda coup if an IDF bulldozer driver got incinerated!

NONE

One thing for sure, she will be HONORED at Evergreen State as some sort of hero. A building will probably be renamed for her. They had Mumia, the cop killer as their co-commencement speaker in 2000.

I was shocked by the news and the story behind Rachel Corrie's death.

Were you also shocked by the news and the story behind Abigail Litle's death? Or are the victims of the Palestinians not of any concern to you?

Re the: " holier than thou piousness! It's best to chill out!

I don't think it is. The nitwit was aiding and abebting the homicide bombers and their cause. She will be promoted as a hero, martyred for her support of what is refered to as peace, but is really only the surrender of any justice whatsoever to the vicious clowns pretending to be victims. They are not victims of anything, except their own vicious and murderous hatred twords a people that simply exist.

She is not like the protestor(s) at Tieneman(sp) Square that was rolled over by a tank. They were acting in defiance of a murderous commie regime. She is an example of the nihlistic anarchist riff-raff that constantly strive to corrupt the minds of the World's youth in order to promote the ends of totalitarian powers. It would be another thing altogether if she were simply an idiot that jumped in front of a bulldozer. It is simply shameful to make fun , or to find joy in any harm that comes to the mentally deficient. She wasn't, she was rational agent for the cause of the homicide culture of the anti-Semites.

anytime an American is killed by a foreign nation it is cause for rebuke!

Once, that was the case. In the Middle East, American activists used to just have to yell "I'm an American!" and even armed troops melted before them. No one dared touch them. Not any more.

LadyinRed, is it the press who are having a field day over this case - or is it FR? There have been innumerable threads on this one person's death, full of posts making jokes, insults and exulting over the happy event. Everyone wants to get a word in. In these circumstances, I would say it is Freepers who are having a field day.

Only 95%? We must be slipping.

The Evergreen State College Primer

See the IDF.
See the Bulldozer
See the IDF drive the Bulldozer.
The IDF drives the Bulldozer good.

See Corrie
See Corrie protest the Bulldozer.
Corrie protests the Bulldozer good.

See the Bulldozer run over Corrie.

See the spot? The spot used to be Corrie.

> Why?

It was a human life that was lost, however misguided it was.

How many conservos took shots - and I mean literally - at Norma McCorvey for her role as Jane Roe. If one of those shots had hit, we never would have seen her later convert to Christianity and become an advocate for natal life.

I'm fierce in my political convictions, but I draw the line when it approaches the sovereignty of God, as the loss of human life does.

Corrie, 23, a student at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash

When my husband and I first heard that she was from Olympia, our first reaction was; "oh, probably an Evergreen student". Sure enough, she was. This particular college is beyond left-wing. A couple of years ago, they played an audio tape by Mumia for their college commencement ceremonies. There were a few kids who walked out, but the majority stayed.

Interesting how those mock funerals seem to grow full blown
into the minds of all those folks at the same time.

Here is what happens when you mock.

Henry V.

tell the pleasant prince this mock of his
Hath turn'd his balls to gun-stones; and his soul
Shall stand sore-charged for the wasteful ven-
geance
That shall fly with them: for many a thousand
widows
Shall this his mock mock out of their dear hus-
bands;
Mock mothers from their sons, mock castles
down;
And some are yet ungotten and unborn
That shall have cause to curse the Dauphin's
scorn.
But this lies all within the will of God,
To whom I do appeal; and in whose name
Tell you the Dauphin I am coming on,
To venge me as I may and to put forth
My rightful hand in a well-hallow'd cause.
So get you hence in peace; and tell the Dauphin
His jest will savour but of shallow wit
When thousands weep more than did laugh at
it.
