  • Neighbor 'goes nuts,' destroys several homes with bulldozer (Washington State)

    05/10/2013 3:19:54 PM PDT · by Stoat · 109 replies
    PORT ANGELES, Wash. -- Witnesses say a man upset with his neighbors went on a rampage with a bulldozer-like piece of logging machinery in a Port Angeles neighborhood, damaging four homes and knocking out power to thousands of people. The Clallam County Sheriff's Office says it does not appear that anyone was injured during the incident that happened just after noon Friday along Pioneer Road. The suspect was arrested. "A person with a piece of heavy equipment that was very upset, struck (four) homes in the area and also a truck," said Jim Borte with the Clallam County Sheriff's...

    Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch has ruled, not for the first time, that any area in Judea and Samaria that has not been declared state land is considered private Arab land by default and all buildings in such areas must be demolished. She could just as well have ruled that this land is not claimed and therefore could be settled by Jews according to the law that land that is worked on for ten years without prior proven ownership can become the property of those working it, or that unclaimed land can be given to Jews outright.

    A group of pro-Palestinian activists, including a Nobel Peace laureate from Northern Ireland, are aboard an aid ship heading for the Gaza Strip, and they expect to arrive there late Friday or early Saturday despite Israel's insistence that it will not allow any vessel to breach its blockade, according to multiple reports. The MV Rachel Corrie, a 1,200-ton converted merchant ship purchased by pro-Palestinian activists, set off Monday from Malta, Reuters reports. The vessel is named after an American woman killed in the Gaza Strip in 2003.

    Jerusalem (CNN) -- A 23-year-old American activist stands in front of an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza. The bulldozer drives over her, crushing her to death. These are the facts. Rachel Corrie, along with colleagues from the International Solidarity Movement, was trying to prevent Israel from bulldozing homes in Rafah, close to the Egyptian border. Her activism cost her her life in March 2003. A colleague said at the time, "Many times the bulldozer came up to us and buried us with dirt, but they always stopped." Corrie's parents want to know the truth about their daughter's death, whether the killing...

    Palestinian Arab terrorists driving two cars and a bulldozer burst through an Israeli army checkpoint in Samaria on Wednesday and attempted to run down the Israeli soldiers manning the position. The Israelis fired their weapons in the air, quickly convincing the Palestinian to halt the attack before anyone was injured. The four terrorists were all taken into custody and their vehicles confiscated. The incident comes less than 48 hours after an Arab teenager rammed his car into a group of Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem, wounding 17 people. Also on Wednesday, an Israeli soldier subdued and arrested a 16-year-old Palestinian after...

    Sixteen people were wounded, one of them moderately, as a bulldozer driver went on a rampage in central Jerusalem Tuesday afternoon in an apparent attempt to recreate the terror attack in the capital earlier this month. The vehicle reportedly left a construction site near Yemin Moshe neighborhood and set off towards Liberty Bell Park (Gan Hapa'amon), near the corner of Keren Hayesod and King David streets. It drove a distance of approximately 160 meters, attempting to overturn a bus and crashing into four other vehicles - one of which it flipped over. The man was then shot dead by a...

Traffic was halted, and hundreds of people fled through the streets in panic as medics treated the wounded. A car was dragged several meters by the bulldozer before being crushed under the vehicle.

The emotions around her death were tumultuous. A New York production of a play about her diaries was shut down after objections from pro-Israel activists. Indeed, the force of Corrie's convictions made her writing shimmer with urgency. On March 7, W.W. Norton published her diaries and poems under the title "Let Me Stand Alone." These excerpts are...

    A new mini-bulldozer developed by the IDF has emerged as the latest in a series of new ways to combat Palestinian Authority terrorism emanating from Arab cities in Gaza, Judea and Samaria. The “Lioness” made its public debut in the pages of this week’s edition of “BaMachane,” the IDF weekly magazine. Although it looks like a cute little vehicle, however, the Lioness can be deadly. Unlike its predecessor, the new bulldozer was specifically designed for counter-terrorism operations in close quarters, according to IDF Col. Amir Kochavi, who was quoted in the report. “There are different combat requirements that we faced...

    The IDF has developed a tiny bulldozer for combat operations inside Palestinian cities, a military publication reported. The little machine is designed for rumbling down narrow roads and paths in the closer quarters of Palestinian cities, where old sections are warrens of crowded alleyways between rundown concrete block buildings. In previous operations, Israeli forces have sent full-size bulldozers ahead of ground troops, causing considerable damage to buildings. The current edition of the soldiers' weekly Bamahaneh carries a picture of the new machine, called "Lioness." It looks like a toy - a vehicle higher than it is wide or long, painted...

Co-written and directed by Alan Rickman, one of England's best actors, "Rachel Corrie" just opened off-Broadway after a successful London run.
