    Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s uncle arrived at a Worcester, Mass., funeral home yesterday to prepare his nephew’s corpse for a Muslim burial. But the home’s director, Peter Stefan, said he has still been unable to find a single cemetery willing to offer a plot to bury the terrorist Tsarnaev, 26. “I’m tired of dealing with these cowards,” Stefan said yesterday of area cemetery directors, after receiving Tsarnaev’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni. “Let’s separate the sins from the sinners.”

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...

Israeli authorities claim that the driverwas unable to see Corrie, given the restricted vision from his perch, and that she acted recklessly by inserting herself into the path of the bulldozer. But as always happens in the Middle East, lies trumped truth. The Corrie myth has been one of the most powerful tools in the anti-Israel propaganda campaign. She inspired literary works, boycotts and political memorials all around the world. Her...

"Carrie?"

Rachel Corrie's parents were seated about 15 feet (five meters) away as he testified publicly for the first time Thursday in their civil lawsuit against the Israeli government.

    JERUSALEM (Map, News) - An American demonstrator was critically wounded Friday in a clash between protesters and Israeli troops over Israel's West Bank separation barrier. Peace activists with the International Solidarity Movement said Tristan Anderson, of the Oakland, Calif., area, was struck in the head with a tear gas canister fired by Israeli troops. The military and the Tel Aviv hospital where Anderson was taken had no details on how he was hurt. "He's in critical condition, anesthetized and on a ventilator and undergoing imaging tests," said Orly Levi, a spokeswoman at the Tel Hashomer hospital. She described Anderson's condition...

    Pancake winner dies in all-you-can-eat contest By Etan Smallman, Mirror.co.uk 5/03/2009 The winner of a pancake-eating contest dropped dead after gorging himself on 43 of the cream and banana stuffed desserts. Boris Isayev, 48, from west Russia, collapsed to his knees and died on stage after stuffing himself with pancakes in a competition to mark the end of the region’s ‘Pancake Week’. "He had really enjoyed the pancakes but then he started foaming at the mouth and went down like a sack of stones," one witness said. "We have seen people fainting [during such contests] before," she added. Onlookers tried...

    EDITOR'S NOTE: The story of 23-year-old Olympia native Rachel Corrie gripped the Northwest in March 2003 when she was killed in the Gaza Strip by a bulldozer operated by the Israeli army as she tried to block demolition of a Palestinian family's home. 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...
  • Rachel Corrie play in Montreal

    Follow the link to read about a play making a hero out of Rachel Corrie that is running in Montreal. Corrie was a nitwit, indoctrinated by Israel-hating leftists at Evergreen State College who got flattened by an Israeli military bulldozer. Good riddance to her! Anyone dumb enough not to move out of the way of a slow moving bulldozer shouldn't be using up valuable oxygen. Does the play have a bulldozer come on stage, like the helicopter in Miss Saigon? Because watching a re-enactment of the flattening of the unlamented Rachel Corrie might be worth the price of a ticket.

    He has been seen on grilled cheese sandwiches, in windows and in clouds, and now Jesus has been seen on a pancake. Marilyn Smith was making a pancake a couple of weeks ago. As she was sprinkling it with chocolate powder, the Port St. Lucie woman noticed two figures in the grill marks. To her and her daughter, they appeared to be Jesus and Mary. So, after holding onto it for a few days, they decided to put it up for auction on eBay. The starting bid was $35. when the auction ended just before midnight last night, the winning...

    The parents of Rachel Corrie, the US peace activist who was crushed to death four years ago in the then Israeli-occupied Gaza as she was protesting against the demolition of Palestinian homes, have been refused permission to sue the company which made the bulldozer that killed her. On Monday a federal appeals court ruled that Caterpillar Inc, the Illinois-based company that has supplied several bulldozers used by the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) in house demolitions in the occupied territories, could not be sued as to do so would bring the judiciary into conflict with the executive branch of the US...

    WARDLAW, Circuit Judge: Plaintiffs Cynthia and Craig Corrie, Mahmoud Al Sho’bi, Fathiya Muhammad Sulayman Fayed, Fayez Ali Mohammed Abu Hussein, Majeda Radwan Abu Hussein, and Eida Ibrahim Suleiman Khalafallah filed this action after their family members were killed or injured when the Israeli Defense Forces (“IDF”) demolished homes in the Palestinian Territories using bulldozers manufactured by Caterpillar, Inc., a United States corporation.

The district court dismissed the action under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6), finding it lacked jurisdiction because, inter alia, the political...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will hear arguments Monday whether there is merit to a lawsuit by the family of Rachel Corrie, the 23-year-old activist from Olympia killed by a bulldozer in the Gaza Strip in 2003.
