  • Top court hears appeal on American activist’s death

    05/21/2014 7:59:16 AM PDT · by Former Fetus · 46 replies
    Almost two years after a Haifa court ruled that Israel was not negligent in the 2003 death of American activist Rachel Corrie during a protest against IDF operations in the Gaza Strip, the Supreme Court heard her family’s appeal of the verdict Wednesday afternoon. Speaking before the hearing in Jerusalem, Craig Corrie, the activist’s father, said the lower court’s ruling had given the army “immunity and impunity.” “I think that’s very dangerous,” he said. “I hope the Israeli high court will change the findings, but if they don’t, I hope the world and the world press will bring it into...

    A former congressman who represented Rachel Corrie's district said on Thursday he was unsurprised by an Israeli court verdict to dismiss a civil suit filed by the family. Speaking to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency, Democrat Brian Baird of Washington said the trial was undermined by Israel's failure to conduct a transparent investigation into Corrie’s death in 2003. “The verdict was not a great surprise” because the outcome resulted from “a process that seemed designed to obfuscate the facts rather than clarify,” the ex-lawmaker said. “Sadly, as I've come to understand, this is standard operating procedure” for many complaints alleging...

    Saint Pancake The widely publicized death-by-IDF-bulldozer of American activist Rachel Corrie in 2003 has been found to be accidental by a Haifa court in a verdict read early this morning. The civil lawsuit had been brought by Corrie's damages-seeking family, yet the judge found 'no mistakes' in the way the IDF had conducted it's activities in Gaza that day. The Corries had accused the Jewish state and Israeli military of intentionally and unlawfully killing their daughter, then failing to conduct 'a full and credible investigation'. But it's hard to not see financial opportunism in the case, considering that they also...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Attorneys filed a federal lawsuit against IHOP and a local franchise owner on Tuesday, claiming that the restaurant owners fired four managers across the Metroplex in 2010 because they are Muslim. The attorneys for the four managers said that their clients are still unemployed because of the damage done to their reputations. The managers worked at IHOP locations in Plano, Burleson, Fort Worth and Arlington — all owned by Anthraper Investments. “It became very clear to them that they were no longer wanted,” explained attorney James Vagnini, who represents the men in their lawsuit. “One by one,...

    The White Castle hamburger chain fears that a health insurance reform law adopted earlier this year will put its profits on a downward slide. The Columbus-based family owned restaurant chain - known for serving small square hamburgers called "sliders" – says a single provision in the bill will eat up roughly 55 percent of its yearly net income after 2014. Starting that year, the bill levies a $3,000-per-employee penalty on companies whose workers pay more than 9.5 percent of household income in premiums for company-provided insurance. White Castle, which currently provides insurance to all of its full-time workers and picks...

The only difference is that we know that Corrie really died.

What happened afterward has been covered up by the Palestinian Authority and the International...

    Pushes 2007 deadline in proposal to remove US soldiers from Iraq WASHINGTON -- Senator John F. Kerry is pushing back by six months the deadline he wants to set for removing combat troops from Iraq, as he seeks to build support in the Senate for his plan for troop withdrawal. The proposal to be offered by Kerry today would require President Bush to remove nearly all US troops from Iraq by July 1, 2007. The Massachusetts Democrat's initial plan -- to remove troops by the end of 2006 -- received just six votes in the Senate last week, and the...

    An Alexandria police officer who fatally shot a teenager in a restaurant parking lot in February will not face criminal charges, the city's chief prosecutor said in a report released yesterday. Commonwealth's Attorney S. Randolph Sengel said physical evidence and statements from bystanders support Officer Carl Stowe's account that he fired at a sport utility vehicle Feb. 25 outside an International House of Pancakes because it was about to run him down. Aaron Brown, 19, of Springfield, was killed in the shooting.

    More than two dozen people became ill after inhaling a substance believed to have been sprayed inside an IHOP restaurant, police said. Authorities were trying to determine the source of the substance that forced the restaurant's evacuation Tuesday evening. Some customers were gasping for air, and one complained of shortness of breath and a burning sensation in his nose and throat. Four were taken to hospitals, police said. "Due to the symptoms of the victims, it is believed that some substance, such as tear gas or some similar substance, may have been sprayed in the seating area of the restaurant,"...

    Rachel Corrie went to Gaza to draw attention to the plight of the Palestinians, whose voice is seldom heard in her country, the US. That she herself should be silenced - first by an Israeli bulldozer, next by a New York theatre cancelling a play created from her words - is a testimony to the power of her message. This song was written on a plane on March 20 and recorded at Big Sky Recordings, Ann Arbor, Michigan on March 22. The tune is borrowed from Bob Dylan. An Israeli bulldozer killed poor Rachel Corrie As she stood in its...

    On March 16, 2003, 23-year-old Rachel Corrie was killed by an Israeli bulldozer while acting as a "human shield" against the demolition of a Palestinian home in Rafah. She immediately became a martyr and a political symbol for the Palestinian cause. To many Israelis, however, she naively intruded into an enormously complex political situation of which she was largely ignorant. Others, here and abroad, considered her an aid to terrorists and a traitor. Mostly, however, her death has transformed her into an almost mythic figure. The web is bursting with tribute sites, and there have been documentaries about her life...

    A potential Off Broadway production of "My Name Is Rachel Corrie," an acclaimed solo show about an American demonstrator killed by an Israeli bulldozer while trying to stop the destruction of a Palestinian home, has been postponed because of concerns about the show's political content. The production, a hit at the Royal Court Theater in London last year, had been tentatively scheduled to start performances at the New York Theater Workshop in the East Village on March 22. But yesterday, James C. Nicola, the artistic director of the workshop, said he had decided to postpone the show after polling local...

    Washington DC, Dec. 09, 2005 (CNA) - Intervening in the heated debate about the mention of Christmas on the public square, Concerned Women for America (CWA) presented a first Christmas list showing which businesses are honouring the Reason for the Season (the birth of Jesus), which ones are not, and which have mixed records. It first lists the corporation ‘Nice’ or friendly to the Original Christmas tradition.  This year Macy's joins the NICE list because it has returned the explicit mention of Christmas and Merry Christmas to its stores and its ads. L.L. Bean, on the other hand, just barely...
