Michael Moore and Jimmy Carter Spew Over Rachel Corrie Verdict

The ongoing exploitation of Rachel Corrie’s death, most likely caused by her Muslim doctors, has on purpose and one purpose alone, to continue the left’s hate campaign against the Jewish State. Regardless of what the verdict would have been, it would have led to exactly the same responses from the usual suspects.

Michael Moore decried the verdict that the bulldozer driver was not to blame when the Hamas supporter decided to play Hide and Seek with the bulldozer. Joining him and Rachel Corrie’s incredibly bigoted lawyer, was Jimmy “Apartheid” Carter.

I hope that the U.S. government will use all reasonable means to ensure that the rights of American citizens are protected overseas and that justice is done for the Corrie family,” said former President Carter.

Carter, does not of course, support similar protection for the rights of Americans in Israel assaulted and murdered by the terrorists whom he supports.

Occupy Los Angeles and Occupy Oakland have issued their own calls for action against Israel. This does little to help the OWS movement which was begun at the incitement of an anti-Semitic Canadian magazine and has been criticized for its bigoted overtones.

Gilad Atzmon wrote the expected anti-Semitic screed, “Judge Gershon gave this week a kosher stamp to a cold-blooded murder and by so doing, he proved, once again, that Israeli criminal actions are consistent with the most vile interpretations of Old Testament and Talmudic Goy-hating.”

Atzmon’s work has been defended by Richard Falk and John Mearsheimer who have rejected charges that he is anti-Semitic. Meanwhile NGO Monitor discusses what actually took place.

In 2002 ISM co-founders Adam Shapiro and Huwaida Arraf stated, “The Palestinian resistance must take on a variety of characteristics, both non-violent and violent…Yes, people will get killed and injured,” but these deaths are “no less noble than carrying out a suicide operation. And we are certain that if these men were killed during such an action, they would be considered shaheed Allah.”

ISM co-founder Thomas Saffold showed an utter lack of regret over Corrie’s death, boasting afterwards that ‘we’re like a peace army. Generals send young men and women off to operations, and some die.’

    Damned if they do damned if they don't, had the Israeli judge condemned the IDF these extreme left winged anti-semites would have cried "see they murder innocents" and now the judge has ruled it was Corrie's own negligent aggressive behaviour that caused her death they cry "Israëli justice is biased".

      Exactly. They begin Catch 22 conflicts and claim victory no matter what happens.

    Corrie's death is a great example of why the Darwin Awards exist.

  • Ann

    didn't she cause her own death…so why would that not be her own fault and as for carter and moore we know their agendas, their IQ's, and their morals— these are people who promote the murder of unborn children…that says it all…

    Just as Pat Tillman’s 2004 friendly-fire death was covered up by the US Army (and those responsible whitewashed by both the Bush and Obama administrations), the nature of Yoni Netanyahu’s 1976 death at Entebbe was covered up the IDF. Yoni and Pat were both driven by a sense of integrity, honesty and conviction. As was Rachel Corrie, who was Pat’s hero [see the June 2010 post, “That’s My Hero”: Pat Tillman, Rachel Corrie, and Yoni Netanyahu, at the feralfirefighter blog].

    His mother, Mary Tillman, wrote in her book: “Everywhere I look in this house, I’m staggered by memories. … I look at Pat’s books on the shelves and appreciate his special keepsakes … I find a small newspaper clipping I’ve seen before. The article is about Rachel Corrie … I remember picking up the article from the same spot more than a year ago [2003] and asking Pat, ‘Who’s this?’ ‘That’s my hero,’ Pat said. ‘She was a stud; she had a lot of guts.’ I read the article with tears in my eyes then; now, I quietly cry.”

      Nice try; but it won't wash. Just laugh!

      Pat Tillman was a real American hero. He chose to fight for his country. He was killed by accident, but the left tried to portray his death as a "homicide" perpetrated by the U.S. Army. Rachel Corrie died because she was trying to obstruct the Israeli government's efforts to try and capture terrorists, who Corrie was sheltering in a tunnel. Corrie died trying to shelter terrorists from justice. On the other hand, in Cuba, the Castro regime had executed a high-ranking general named Arnaldo Ochoa over false charges of "drug trafficking" and "treason". Ochoa's own government betrayed him. That just shows how the totalitarian Cuban government treats their own generals. Where's the outrage over the Cuban government's imprisonment of Alan Gross over the past 3 years and without a fair trial? Or, what about the Chinese government's imprisonment of Liu Xiaobo and other Chinese and Tibetan political prisoners, who are campaigning for democracy and freedom? Why isn't there any sympathy for them? It is because they are all dissidents from communist countries, that's why. The left doesn't care about prisoners, they just hate the West, its allies and the freedom and democracy that the West and its allies offer.

        Those "terrorists" you speak of were an innocent family with children whom Israel allowed to go to Tel Aviv and obtain American visas for a speaking tour (2005). Some terrorists! Israel destroyed their home (without recompense) to extend the buffer zone with Egypt from 300 to 400 meters. That would be like the Mexican Army destroying all the American homes within 400 meters of the Canadian border. Absurd. Israel only gets away with such criminality due to the power, wealth and influence of the Israel lobby in the US (which in Israel is called the "Jewish" lobby). We will all pay for supporting an Israel that refuses to recognize the rights of non-Jews living in their ancestral homeland of Palestine. Shame on America!

          First of all, "Palestine" was a Latin name, not Arabic. It means Philistine. The Philistines were Greek sailors (from the Mediterranean islands) and they had red hair. They were not Arabs. Second, the Jews in the area that is now Israel were living there continuously for over 3,000 years, way before Islam was established and the Arabs started moving into the area. Third, Arabs in Israel have more rights as Israeli citizens than the people in other countries in the Middle East. Fourth, terrorist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, the PLO and some of their allies have repeatedly refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist. Hamas alone, has repeatedly fired rockets into Israeli cities and towns, killing many people and causing destruction, which has cost the Israeli government millions of dollars to make repairs. Israel's military actions against Hamas are defensive actions against an enemy who wants to destroy the country. In 2005, Israel completely withdrew its troops and settlers from Gaza. That's not an act of aggression. Israel has repeatedly stated that it wants peace with its neighbors, but Hamas, Hezbollah and its allies do not want peace because those entities hate Jews and anyone else who is not like them . Fifth, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority have received lots of aid and money from international organizations like the United Nations as well as many countries around the world, including the United States. If anything, the Islamists have so much power in the international arena. Why doesn't the international community focus more on the Muslim Brotherhood and the power that it has in the world today. Shame on the Islamists!


    Someone should pick up gilad atzmon, paint a Star of David on him, and drop him off in Tahrir Square, Egypt or Gaza

    Problem solved.

    One minor correction to your excellent article. The doctors could do nothing to save Rachel Corrie. Her death was caused by playing chicken with a bulldozer (not my original words, but very accurate and I wish I remembered who it was that used this phrase).

    Walking in front of a bulldozer is suicide. Not Russian Roulette, but suicide.

    Who cares what Michael Moore and Jimmy Carter think in the first place? Michael Moore is a farleft nut who doesn't know the difference between right and wrong,and Jimmy Carter is an old Jew hater that believes evil people like Hamas are the good guys and the Israelis who are trying to keep their civilians from being murdered by these monsters are the bad guys. Like most Israel haters,their the worst kind of hypocrites nether has any compassion at all for the Jewish women and children murdered by Palestinian terrorists.

    A human is run over by a bulldozer and her doctors are “most likely” to blame? You’re a liar — as your “most likely” comment demonstrates. Please cite one medical professional who endorses your contention that failing to save a dead patient points to the incompetence of Muslim doctors. No doubt Jewish doctors could have saved her, couldn’t they? Anti-Semitism does not mean anyone disagreeing with you. It’s a term to stop discussion. In return for WASPs saving Jews from catholic Fascism, WASPs got in return Jewish terrorists murdering the same British soldiers who saved Jews from Nazis, the Rosenbergs giving WASP nuclear weapons technology to Jewish-invented Communism, a campaign to destroy Western liberty and society through multiculturalism. Substitute “Jewish” for “Muslim” and you would be outraged. For a bigot like you, hypocrisy is ok. Sadly, you’re probably blind and incapable of noticing it. After all, Jews are more equal than everyone else, aren’t they? You have contempt for Gentiles and would have no qualms seeing them murdered en masse. The ratio of Palestinians killed by Israeli war criminals dwarfs the number of Israeli victims. Shelling civilians with Willie P? Stop calling yourself a journalist.
