No Tears for Corrie

• Views: 2,957

Anti-American terror-supporting child abuser Rachel Corrie was killed while attempting to block a bulldozer from tearing down houses in the Rafah area of the Gaza Strip. The leftist press sees her death as a huge propaganda victory—but the people that this noble “human shield” was protecting are smugglers of weapons, cigarettes, drugs, and prostitutes in the well-known “Philadelphi” route.

Rachel Corrie was emphatically not a “peace activist.” She sided with terrorists and criminals, and advocated—in fact, was excited by—violence and mass murder. In her diary entry for February 10, she lavishes praise on suicide bombers:

I would also like to ask you, and those to whom you pass this on, to think about the relative positions of the fighters and occupiers in this monumentally unequal struggle. While the huge force of Israelis have every technical aid invented by the US war machine, the few young fighters have NOTHING BUT THEIR WEAPON (and this not the most modern) - no helmet, bullet proof vest, radio contact or other protection. No back-up, no plane, helicopter, tank, APC, searchlight, dogs, flares, ambulance or refuge - put all the Israeli/American propaganda aside for a few minutes and try to imagine, please, the courage it requires to do what these youngfighters do, knowing that the odds are against escape and that, every time they do succeed in evading death, the odds against a further survival are shortened. Even if the operation is a success the price is always high.

Two days before she wrote this, one of the “young fighters” she admired so much got on a bus in Haifa and blew himself up—murdering 16 people, most of them teenagers.

That’s the “operation” she wrote about.

CORRECTION: the attack on February 8 was a car bomb, not the Haifa bus bombing, which was perpetrated on March 5 and killed 17; thanks to Nik for the correction.

Sadly, there are so many of these attacks it’s easy to get confused about the dates.
