    Iranian Press TV reports that a conference is to be held in Tehran today, March 14, to mark the anniversary of the 2003 death of American activist Rachel Corrie. The conference is titled "Which rights, which human, which American?" The report quotes Mehdi Foroutan, the director of the Enqelab Eslami (Islamic Revolution) Cultural Center, as saying that the conference will include representatives from 30 NGOs who are gathering "to condemn the inhumane killing of the American peace activist at the hands of the Israeli regime."

    The parents of a pro-Palestinian activist who died during a protest in Gaza 2003 have arrived in Haifa to pursue a civil court case against the state of Israel. The second stage of the Rachel Corrie case opened yesterday in Haifa’s district court. The American activist died aged 23 in March 2003 after being crushed by an IDF bulldozer. She had come to Rafah at the height of the Palestinian intifada with the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, to demonstrate against the demolition of houses. An Israeli military investigation into what happened said that Ms Corrie had died during an armed conflict...

    Emotions ran high at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival over the showing of Rachel, a film that looks at the International Solidarity Movement activist Rachel Corrie and her death in Gaza in March 2003. The controversy had been brewing for some time, concerning both the showing of the film and the invitation to Rachel's mother, Cindy Corrie, to speak at the festival. In the wake of protests against the showing of the film last Saturday, Peter Stein, the festival's executive director, invited Dr. Mike Harris, one of the leaders of the local Stand With Us chapter, to speak in...

    "I’m here because children everywhere are suffering...." - from speech by a 10-year-old Rachel Corrie. Children are indeed suffering in many places. So are adults. Three children were murdered in Rachel Corrie’s “Palestine” on Monday, December 11. Up to 3,200 Arab families could lose their homes to government bulldozers. Two sisters who were evidently Muslim were murdered for their teachings. If Corrie’s friends in the International Solidarity Movement are looking for a cause, the three incidents listed above amount to a small sample of available causes. The two main problems with this scenario for the ISM is that Jews are...
  • I Am Rachel Corie - another Stinky Lefty Play in NYC

    Barf alert! Last night on NY1 (owned by the Clinton News Network) the producer and lead actress of "I am Rachel Corie" were drooling over the late terrorist's last crusade. Corie, as you may recall, was the American activist on the side of the terrorists/Palestinians in Gaza, who got in the way of an Israeli bulldozer and was killed. After the terrorists and leftwing press lionized her, a photo of her burning the American flag was discovered. The play about her life, directed by Alan Rickman, a leftwing Brit actor, played in London and is opening at the Minetta Theater...

    Kerry Refuses to Release Senate Records (2004-04-21) -- After bowing to pressure to release his Vietnam-era military records, Democrat presidential hopeful John Forbes Kerry today adamantly refused to release his U.S. Senate records. "It's one thing to probe into a candidate's military service and medical records," said Mr. Kerry. "But frankly what I did, or did not do, in the privacy of the U.S. Senate chambers is nobody's business." Critics are particularly interested in seeing any comprehensive health care bill that Mr. Kerry has sponsored. On the campaign trail, he been a tireless advocate of health coverage for all Americans,...
