Her death, however unfortunate, IS being used to demonize Israel…If not for the ISM thrusting her amidst conflict about which she completely had the wool pulled over her eyes (if one wants to assume total innocence) she would be alive and presumably thriving and no one would be disparaging her name. That she died, in circumstances about which none of us can be absolutely certain, and is being foisted upon the world as a martyr/hero of the Palestinian cause is the sole reason we hear about her today.

Just to point out, the ISM have a code of non-violence which Rachel Corrie can hardly be accused of violating. Don’t want your enemy to have martyr/heroes? Don’t crush non-violently protesting young girls under bulldozers and then gloat about it for years and years and years.
