The Rachel Corrie Myth

Summary: Rachel Corrie was an American student who died at the age of 23 while acting as a human sheild under disputed circumstances in Israel. An Israeli bulldozer struck her and she died in a Palestinian hospital. The Israelis say that the driver was unable to see her from his vantage point. The Palestinians say that nothing was blocking the drivers' vision.

I feel no excitement over the anniversary of her death. It just leaves me flat.

Oy! Pancake jokes to begin.

*

I still crack up when I remember they held her “memorial breakfast” at an Ihop.

Someone said he was going to show up, order some raspberry pancakes and put a Tonka bulldozer on the stack.

*

There's a picture of her wearing a Hijab, burning an American flag in front of small children. For that alone - teaching children to hate - she should burn in Hell.
I live in Seattle, I should find out if her parents buried her somewhere down near Olympia where they are from so I can go piss on her grave.

Rachel Corrie died in a Palestinian hospital. If he had been taked to an Israeli hospital she might still be alive. She was not “run over” by a bulldozer, she hit her head against the blade when she fell into its path. Her wounds might not have proven fatal, even in the absence of medical attention. Given a little push from Palestinian “doctors”, she never had a chance. She was worth much more to the Palestinians dead than alive.

*

Hamas adopted her face as a mascot and Iran named a street after her.
When Israel flattens Iran, they'll know where to start. Operation IHOP.

*

That’s a scenario that has always made sense. I wouldn’t be surprised if she staged the drama with her ISM and Pali friends, only to discover too late that she purchased a one-way ticket to useful-idiot martyrville.

*

I've already made my reservations to celebrate at IHOP.

*

I cannot escape the conclusion that her parents are antisemite bigots who have no more use for the truth than Joseph Goebbels, and she contracted her antisemitism from her parents. Decent people would be demanding an investigation into her treatment from the time she entered the hospital until she was carried out.

  1. So apparently killing American citizens is only an unforgivable sin that demands a nuclear response when the perpetrators aren't Israeli?

  2. This is one of the few times that I feel like contacting posters on Freek Republic in person just to tell them what scum they are. How much lower can they go?

  3. They can go a whole lot lower. I'm sure they're nowhere near the actual bottom. Once one of their people drops the n-word on tv, you'll get a glimpse of the bottom.

  4. Personally, I have little love lost for Rachel Corrie. I think her methods were non-productive and, if you watch the video, it's clear they make an effort to get her to leave. I have a friend who drives Caterpillar trucks similar to the ones Israeli's do, and he confirmed that at the distance she was at, it would have been impossible to see her.

    That being said, these guys are all fucking scum.
