Sorry. Unable to forward this story to my Care2 friend till this moment.It seems there is something wrong with Care2 address book.Tried for more than 3 hours but couldn't. I won't give up and will try again and again later, This deserves to be a front page story.

About to post.. Signed and shared.

The presiding Israeli judge not only absolved the State of Israel of any liability, but blamed Rachel for her own death. This is unacceptable. PETITION!

Excerpt: "Rachel Corrie was a U.S. citizen and a human rights defender committed to ending Israelís illegal demolition of Palestinian homes. According to the Israeli Committee against House Demolitions, Israel has demolished an estimated 27,000 Palestinian structures in Occupied Palestinian Territory since 1967. Rachel was killed by the Israeli military with a U.S.-taxpayer funded Caterpillar D9 bulldozer on March 16, 2003, in Rafah, in the Gaza Strip, while seeking to protect the home of a Palestinian family from demolition." more at link...

Thanks for signing the petition to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. A brave woman who stood up to the injustice. Unfortunatly, thus far her family has found no justice for her death almost 10 years later. This is one of many sad sad stories of lives destroyed all because people can't learn to share, care, and be compassionate towards each other.

This brave young women will not be blamed for her death when gr$$d and American equipment were used to take her young life. The Israeli government knew Rachel was there attempting to save Palestinians homes from being "ILLEGALLY" bulldozed. The operator of the machine knew. The sad fact is that worlds leaders, more especially the government of the USA knew and were looking the other way as Palestinians were being tossed off their lands, if not murdered, for many years now.

I read about this story in another thread and signed what I think was another petition, but I was happy to sign this one as well! From what I recall, she was wearing a bright orange jacket and was standing on a mound in full view of the operator of the bulldozer as she tried to keep the operator from demolishing a home occupied by a family with five children. Her family needs closure, and someone needs to be held responsible for her murder.

The sad story of Rachel Corrie was investigated lots of times, and facts are already known.

She was a naive or stupid anarchist with anti-Israel attitude, who went to work as a useful idiot for Hamas, not knowing that. Hamas sent her into a war zone while Palestinian Arab snipers were operating, and because of those snipers Israelis could not field out people watching over the protesters as usual.

It is sad that Corrie got into Islamic PR trap and lost her life. Investigation should be made to prevent other young and naive people of being duped again by Islamic extremists, who either are happy when their own children die in Jihad, or, the opposite, prefer to send someone else's kids.

Shame on you Bob A.You are trying to cover up the criminal deed of Israel and justify it? Aren't you ashamed of yourself.Rachel Corrie was not naive or stupid as you are insulting her.All the world know that she was a human rights defender who believed in justice and who not only raised her voice against the demolition of Palestinians homesbut tried in person to stop it. Who is the naive and stupid here? You or Rachel Corri? Surly not Rachel Corrie.

Definitely signed. What happened to Rachel was wrong and cannot go univestigated and unpunished.

Poor Bob Algeron operating under the misapprehension that Israel is and always has been a perfect little angel on the global stage that can do no wrong. Rachel Corrie was not the naive misguided person you make her out to be nor was she duped. You're just against all Palestinians, Arabs, etc. and as evidenced by your other posts, haveno doubt lumped them all together good, bad or indifferent and have labeled them all as the common enemy of mankind.

Rachel, I love you and will always miss you!

Your death is a transformation we shall all go through, but your life is a living legend few people dare to pursuit!

The bankers who killed you, are not going to live longer than you shall..

I thank you with all my heart for your greatness, compassion, love, beauty, bravery, faith, for standing up against injustice, and for the selfless sacrifice you made to all of us, but above all for conquering this world with all its madness. You won Rachel, and I hope one day I will too!!

Shame on you Bob Algeron for spreading out lies and false accusations about an innocent and beautiful soul such as Rachel's!
Even in her death, anti-humanity fanatics such as yourself are trying to suck her glory away.. Well guess what, hateful people like you have no place on this petition or on Care2. go create another website and call it Hate2, It suits people like you more.
I flagged your comment for spreading out lies and trying to defame a DEAD humanitarian!! Israel at its best, even the dead are not safe from its lunacy and hate.

Shame on you, Abdessalam!

A young life was lost, because Islamists duped a naive soul and put her into a war zone to protect their interests. Israel had to destroy houses of Arab suicide bombers because these suicide bombers treasure their houses more than their lives.

You are a supporter of Hamas and Islamists, for you she was a great PR victory, that's why you praise her, and never other ISM activists, like Akram Ibrahim Abu Sba killed by Arabs while trying to make peace between warring clans, or Vittorio Arrigoni, beheaded by Gaza Islamists for no apparent reason than being infidel.
 

Alexander Werner (53)
Saturday September 22, 2012, 6:56 pm
Fadi, those hate sites were created in thousands, by Islamists, long time ago. They spread lies and hate. I have nothing to add to my response to Abdessalam.

You know that a number of courts and investigations took place, with every court saying that being in a war zone is a mortal danger, and bulldozer was too huge for the driver to see it. Read the true story, not Palestinian Arab propaganda spread on those thousands of sites, paid by unsuspecting EU taxpayers. Read who regulated places where ISM anarchists were sent. Read who sent Arab snipers to that place.

Israel of course is no angel, but it fights evil.

With the grief over the young life wasted for nothing, my support goes to Israel.

A nice way to avoid answering my questions, Abdessalam, about ISM members DELIBERATELY killed by Palestinian Arabs: "Akram Ibrahim Abu Sba killed by Arabs while trying to make peace between warring clans, or Vittorio Arrigoni, beheaded by Gaza Islamists for no apparent reason than being infidel.".

Sun shines here very well, Abdessalam.

Now, as you are so well informed about me supposed to be paid by some people in Tel-Aviv, please tell them that they owe me a huge cheque. I will then donate this check to IDF, as they are first in line to protect the civilized world from the evil people.

Did you take part in showing "Muslim Rage" over Muhammad Movie?

Listen Bob Kissinger, the only reason that's stopping me from exposing you and your fat lies here is the fact that this page was created to show solidarity with Rachel Corrie, a beautiful and gorgeous American who made it clear to the world that humanity knows no borders, race, color or religion, something hateful Zionists like you can never understand. And if you were so unhappy about Islamists, extremists and Muslim fanatics, then I advise you to ask Israel to stop creating, funding, supporting and arming them. YES you heard me correctly, stop playing the ignorance game, people are not as naive as you think they are. We know the game very well that your gods, The Rothschilds, are playing. We know how Israel came into existence and what for!!! PERIOD!!! I'm not going to reply to any of your ramblings, lies and nonsense anymore, this page is for Rachel and Iíll make sure it remains that way.
 

Alexander Werner (53)

Fadi, "nly reason that's stopping me from exposing you and your fat lies here is the fact" that you cannot.

Palestinian Arabs deliberately murdered ISM useful idiots who came to help them. You know their names, and how thee were murdered. There were no trials to punish the killers. Islamists asked Corrie to come to the war zone and endanger herself to death.

The concept that Israel funds and encourages Islamic fanaticism may fly in some medresse or by some imam, where people are either completely indoctrinated, or afraid and scared of "Muslim Rage" to burn churches and kill random people. But in a free world people are not afraid of thugs and killers.

We know how Arab states came to existence too, the colonial leftovers, while Brits gave 22 states to one ethnic group, while ignoring Druze, Bahai, Azeris, Kurds and others, striving to have their own states.

Bob and Abdessalam,
Please quit the finger pointing! It just creates frustration. There should be an investigation into Rachels death. She was murdered. Use positive criticism and actions to pursue your points.
Both of you. Rob if you feel the people you mentioned were killed or better yet murdered,
Then start your own petition to seek justice. Otherwise finger pointing is useless banter.
Do something constructive.

Signed - thanks Nancy - green star to Abdessalam, sorry Robert O and others - I tried, but the week isn't up yet!

I remember this story at the time - and the BBC's Correspondent (who sounded stunned) repeating that Rachel Corrie had been wearing a bright orange jacket to protest the bulldozing but that she had been killed anyway. It is unbelievable that everyone involved should not have been prosecuted for murder - or at the very least manslaughter.

Abdessalam - so sorry your address book isn't working - I think a couple of others are in the same boat; I'll try and forward this story to my C2 friends in the hope it might help.
