I was truly saddened to read about Rachel Corrie, what a courageous young woman, puts alot of us to shame, I know what I was seeking at age 23, all the superficial pleasures of life, and look at her, she has stirred my soul, hopefully I'll be able to do a fraction of what she did for some one. May God bless her and give her family and friends the strength to know that those who serve him are never dead.

She's the misguided young American woman who tried to defy an Israeli tank while assisting Palestinian terrorism.

Oh right, thanks. Well, I'm sure she could have done something much more constructive by remaining alive, but that's just my opinion. I'm not sure it was confirmed that it was a Palestinian terrorist's house that was being bulldozed though, but I may be wrong

Not a tank but a bull-dozer, she will be a "martyr" among the extreme left.

She was an idiot, nothing more. While I'm sorry she died, she brought it on herself. You don't stand in front of a bulldozer and expect to survive. Along with the protestor who fell (jumped) off the Golden Gate Bridge, she is at the top of the list for the 2003 Darwin Award.

She was an anti-semetic, anti-Israel leftist, who ended up on the wrong side of a tank. Do I feel sorry for her? Hardly. About as sorry as I'd feel if Mumia Abu-Jamal got the chair.

Ever thought of having the slightest bit of compassion, even if you don’t wholeheartedly agree or understand them? There are people out there who - unlike you - got out there and actually fight for what they believe in instead of….

All she did was think that she was bigger then a bulldozer.


And stand where the driver of said bulldozer couldn't see her.

Yep....I'm not surprised by the insensitivity of some of you people. This woman was fighting for a cause she beleived in and put herself in harms way. Much like the US soldiers in Iraq. Do you blame the dead in that conflict for thinking they were faster than a bullet?

Ignorance abounds....

She was standing up against the brutal Isreali treatment.

Stupid statement. How is she anti-semetic, anti-Israel ? Care to explain?
Because someone doesn't worship Israel(like you) makes them hateful? What bullshit.

Jcs17, Did you know the woman? Whenever you post something political, you are usually speaking with anger and not really that much insight into the situation.

How do you know she was an anti-semite? She was just an activist. She FELL, no one just stands in front of a bulldozer waiting to be crushed. Unlike you, she isn't infatuated with *perfect little Israel.* I wonder how many Americans are ashamed to see their tax dollars go to this.

She fell in the dirt, and if you look at the picture, you'll notice that you could easily trip in there. The bulldozer saw her (and don't say they didn't, that's complete B.S., because it reversed on her, too).

FSP.

When this story first broke last week somebody posted those photos.

I stand by my analysis. Which concluded

1 She was standing where the operator couldn't see her.

2. There where two bulldozers, the 1st that flattened her. The second that stopped short.

3 The first bulldozer did not back up over here. The second one did withdrawal from the accident scene and is probably the source of the allegation she was backed over.

One thing's for certain, she saw the dozer. Wonder what all the other people that were with here did when she tripped (we know what they didn't do, help her).

In any case, seeing as she was clearly inciting hate towards Israel in Palestinians (children among others, see Airmale's link), by getting herself killed she trully did the Palestinian people good.

(burning a mock American flag)

If you guys want to stand up for these actions, go ahead. Corrie constantly railed against Jews' treatment of Muslims, and the Israeli government. When she was killed, she was trying to stop the destruction of a known terrorist outpost. Airmale, are you blocking bulldozers when they come for Al-Qaeda and Taliban hiding out in your country by any chance? Yeah, I'm sure she is considered a great woman where you are, Airmale...I mean, after all, many in your country consider bin Laden to be a hero...

The Israeli bulldozer that ran over and killed American peace activist Rachel Corrie in the Gaza Strip had killed before. A few weeks ago, on March 3, an Israeli bulldozer killed a nine-month pregnant Palestinian woman, Nuha Sweidan, while destroying the house next door in a dilapidated Gaza refugee camp. Palestinian witnesses said that Mrs. Sweidan, 33, bled to death under the rubble as she cradled her 18-month-old daughter. Her unborn baby also died.

I suppose you find this funny too.

Rachel Corrie was using a tried and true non-violent means to prevent the bulldozing of a Palestinian home, a non-violent tactic that goes back to the days of Gandhi. Even Israeli news services have doubted your stupid assertions that she was in front of a terrorist outpost. And whats more, even the "despised" Chinese army wouldn't run over a protester in Tianamen Square.

"Yeah, I'm sure she is considered a great woman where you are"

Actually she's considered a great woman right here in the US of A.

I mean, talk about a great woman! Burning the flag...she's the kind of person that we should all strive to be. Right up your ally, Jaysit--anti-American and a champion of liberal causes...

Sorry but, there is 10% of the population that considers this woman a martyr and a hero, but the rest of us just consider her an idiot.

Jcs17, that fact that you find this humorous tells a lot about you, not that I would like to know much about you.

Damn, I wanted a new internet friend.... My loss is enormous.

Yes, all real Americans are all like you: Against the First Amendment, blindly for GWBush, blissfully ignorant of global politics, prone to finding humor in the savage death of a young woman, clueless about the term "anti-semitic," and basically just too cowardly to fight for his country even though he is of an age where he very well could be. You're merely following in the footsteps of Rush Limbaugh, so I gues you are in good company.

The rest of us American liberals merely hold jobs, pay taxes, do our time in the military and fight to keep America the liberal secular democracy it is. Either that or it turns into a backwater of religious politics and rabid ignorance. Which I guess is right up your alley.

And by the way, thats alley - not ally. It pays to stay in school and learn something.


25 Eric505 : I think she pretty stupid. There are better ways to voice your opinion than to stand in the way of an Israeli bulldozer. No sympathy from me.
