If you believe the media, then Rachel Corrie was just a naive idealistic woman who wanted to fight for Palestinian rights. If you believe her parents, then she was killed by an Israeli government conspiracy. If you believe her lawyer, then Israel is worse than Nazi Germany.
Rachel Corrie’s parents knew exactly what they were doing when they chose Hussein Abu Hussein to represent them and their case. They chose a radical who says, “Israel is a “giant monster… we all want to step on its head, but talking is not enough” and “Nazi Germany was a state based on the rule of law… for a short while… the State of Israel was founded from the start on robbery and theft.”
The truth about Rachel Corrie and her family and her supporters is that they are extremists. They are not interested in justice. All they care about is continuing the struggle to destroy the Jewish State that Rachel Corrie enlisted in.
ISM has often been abbreviated as “I Support Murderers”. Rachel Corrie’s accidental death aiding terrorists made her a martyr to be exploited by those who support terrorists.
As bad as Hussein Abu Hussein and Rachel Corrie are, it speaks volumes about the Obama Administration’s priorities that Dan Shapiro, Obama’s ambassador to Israel, has agitated on their behalf and condemned Israel. It also speaks volumes about the Democratic Party’s support for Israel.
The Corrie extremism isn’t just limited to a deceased ISM member or her extremist lawyer, it goes all the way up to John Kerry who insisted during Shapiro’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that he stay on the Corrie case. And it goes all the way up to Obama who has shown a consistent disrespect for Israeli sovereignty. It’s a short step from Hussein Abu Hussein to Barack Hussein Obama.
