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.’
