Happy Pancake Day! Rachel Corrie’s Death Ruled Accidental

Haifa court rules against Rachel Corrie family

The Haifa District Court on Tuesday ruled against the family of Rachel Corrie, the American pro-Palestinian activist struck and killed by a bulldozer in Gaza. In the verdict, Judge Oded Gershon invoked the principle of the combatant activities exception, noting that IDF forces had been attacked in the same area Corrie was killed just hours earlier.

Have fun in the comments at the Globe;)

The secular beatification of Rachel Corrie sums up everything that is wrong with modern solidarity with Palestine : The transformation of Corrie’s life and death into a black-and-white morality tale – featuring a well-off white American who was pure of heart, poor little brown people who have no hope, and a Zionist entity that is supremely evil – sums up the boneheadedness of modern-day Palestinian solidarity.
