In 2003 Rachel was bulldozed to death by a Zionist soldier. She was bulldozed for daring to stand up against the Zionist regime. She was bulldozed for trying to block the path of a Zionist military bulldozer razing Palestinians homes. Corries only weapon was an orange high visibility jacket in addition to a megaphone. Sadly she didn’t realize that a soldier who feeds on the blood of innocent Palestinians was equally hungry to feed on her innocent blood.
The verdict reached by Judge Oded Gershon of the Zionist regime confirms that the Zionist regime is willing to justify the murder of any individual who dares to stand up against the brutalities of the Zionist regime. This was confirmed when a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s governing coalition called the verdict “vindication after vilification.”
If Corrie and her friends from the international solidarity campaign thought for a moment that her American passport would offer her some kind of protection they were proved wrong in the most brutal way. After all how can the American government stand up for Corrie and bring her killer to justice when every Presidential candidate has to declare his loyalty to Israel before he can reach the White House.
