Israeli Court Legitimizes Murder

The whole world knows Israel murdered Rachel Corrie in cold blood.

by Stephen Lendman

Cindy and Craig Corrie hoped for better. So did sister Sarah. The world knows Israel murdered their daughter, Rachel, in cold blood. On August 28, Israeli justice ruled otherwise. 

It's unsurprising in a nation contemptuous of rule of law principles, democratic values, and life itself. More on the court ruling below.

Israel is a rogue terror state. It's an out-of-control blight on humanity. It's a regional menace. Racism and persecution are institutionalized. It's unfit to live in for most Jews. For Arabs and supporters of equal rights and justice, it's dangerous.

On March 16, 2003, an Israeli bulldozer soldier/driver murdered Rachel Corrie in cold blood.

Courageously she tried to stop a lawless Rafah refugee camp home demolition. Eye witnesses said she climbed atop a giant militarized Caterpillar tractor, spoke to the driver, climbed down, knelt 10 - 20 meters in front in clear view, and blocked its path with her body.

Activists screamed for it to stop. The operator ignored them. He deliberately crushed Rachel to death. To be sure, he ran over her twice.

He murdered her in cold blood. Israel's government and military supported him. They still do. 

They believe Arab lives and well-being don't matter. They target activists who support them. They're considered enemies of the state. 

Opposition isn't tolerated. Murder is official policy to eliminate it. Rachel's death bears stark witness to institutionalized lawlessness.

Legitimizing it reveals corrupt Israeli justice. Punishment follows Jewish killings. Arab ones or supporters are whitewashed. Orders from the top mandate it. Investigations when they're held are shams. Israel's said:

"The state believes that it was proved that the activity of the IDF force is within the framework of 'war activity."

"In addition, the state proved that the deceased willfully endangered herself and, sadly, her contributory fault stood at 100%."

In 2005, Rachel's family sued: "The estate of Rachel Aliene Corrie v. State of Israel, Ministry of Defense."
