Remembering Rachel Corrie

by Stephen Lendman

Israel murdered her in cold blood.

Rachel represented the best of courageous activism. She put her body on the line for justice. She did so because it matters. She's gone but not forgotten.

Ten years ago on March 16, an Israeli bulldozer driver murdered her in cold blood. She tried stopping a Rafah refugee camp home demolition.

Eye witnesses said she climbed atop a giant Caterpillar tractor. They designed to destroy homes. They're weapons of mass destruction. Caterpillar's complicit in Israeli crimes.

Rachel spoke to the driver. She climbed down. She knelt 10 - 20 meters in front. She blocked its path with her body. She was in clear view.

The tractor lurched forward. Activists screamed for it to stop. The soldier-operator pressed on. He crushed Rachel to death. He did so maliciously.
