    Ran over by a bulldozer while trying to defend the home of a Palestinian pharmacist, Rachel Corrie died for a cause she believed in. Rachel Corrie died because she thought that human decency wasn't a value that was to be applied only to the ones closer to her, but also to the others

    The trial on the actions that led to her death has started and justice will be done. Because Israel being the beacon of justice that it is in this world will have no problems in convicting a wrongdoer.

    Certainly that the soldier that was driving the bulldozer and could perfectly see her will be punished for taking a human live with no reason.

    Certainly that Israel will punish the soldier that was alerted by her fellow activists, waving and screaming into a megaphone, and still kept on going forward crushing a woman.

    Surely that Israel will once again show the world that it means business when presents itself to be the only democracy in the region.

    Surely!

    She is Rachel Corrie and she is here because she cares!

    If Rachel Corrie really thought that this would somehow contribute to the peace process, she was as stupid as not getting out of the way of a bulldozer coming your way would suggest.

    Does it matter? A criminal act was under way, she tried to stop it, she lost her life. Was it a murder?

    I guess an Israeli court will have to judge that.

    I don't support bulldozing people. But does getting yourself killed for no reason somehow contribute to the peace process? No.

    Does this has to do with the peace process? No.

    Israel is destroing houses in Palestinian territories? Why? Because Israel is a criminal state.
    Israel want to build their own settlements on Palestinian crounds. That's criminal. Israel is a criminal state.

    Why is there Israeli precense in the first place? Does this contribute with the peace process? No. Because Israel don't want peace. They want to get rid of the Palestinians. Why? Israel is a criminal state.

    Why do the Arabs not get on with the job of building a viable State for themselves in the terriritory they occupy, as the Israelis have done in their part of Palestine?
    It is no good harping on about what happened in the past, the Arabs need to adopt a positive attitude, instead of a negative one, to their present situation, and show the world that they can do as well as the Israelis have done over the years in successfully building a viable State from scratch.
    That is of course assuming they have the innate abilty and will power to do so, which may be questionable.

    Your ability to misapprehend the world around you never ceases to amaze me.

    palestinians. not arabs. calling palestinians arabs is like calling argentinians spanish.

    to understand the plight of palestinians is to wear their shoes. it is to look at a map of your own country, then draw a line over it and have all your people move into the much smaller slice, abandoning their homes and possesions and see namibians(for example) move in and "build a viable State for themselves" like you mentioned.

    and yes, to keep things similar to the current state of affairs in palestine, your people will have to keep in mind that "It is no good harping on about what happened in the past" and to "dopt a positive attitude, instead of a negative one, to their present situation, and show the world that they can do as well as the [Namibians] have done over the years in successfully building a viable State from scratch.
    That is of course assuming they [your people] have the innate abilty and will power to do so, which may be questionable", but understandble i might add.


    how does that sound?

    so people simply need to "not get in the way" when someone threatens to throw excrements at the fan.


    yes, very healthy attitude.

    Spanish is a nationality, Arab is not. Most Palestinians are Arabs.
