Rachel Corrie was crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer on March 16, 2003 while trying to prevent demolition of a Palestinian house; America never really went after the killers... . I wrote about her last year
and a year before that
. and once again, it's time to remember and charish the memory this great human being who gave her life while protecting the lives of innocent people, especially children. Remember, she left the comfort of her life and put herself in the danger while protecting those who had no relation with her but being her fellow world citizens. Death of people like Corrie will forever remain as a reminder of the Isreali brutality and crimes.
Now, 3 years after her murder by the Israeli occupiers, the Israeli lobbies in the US are even afraid of her memory and are doing all they can to kill the thoughts about her, and unfortunately, once again it appears that they are being successful
in doing that. One wonders how much of an influence these lobbies have in the US which allows them to limit the democratic freedoms and exchanges of ideas and thoughts in the most "powerful" country in the world.
Rachel Corrie's memory will not die in the minds of those who care, and THAT is what really matters.
