You have chosen to honor her memory by taking her side. As I said, it’s understandable, but it doesn’t validate the ideology that got her killed in order to further its goals of still more death and destruction.

About the Author: Vic Rosenthal created FresnoZionism.org to provide a forum for publishing and discussing issues about Israel and the Mideast conflict, especially where there is a local connection. Rosenthal believes that America’s interests are best served by supporting the democratic state of Israel, the front line in the struggle between Western civilization and radical Islam. The viewpoint is not intended to be liberal or conservative — just pro-Israel.

One Response to “A Letter to the Corries: Your Daughter was Exploited, Don’t Blame Israel”

  1. Guy Montag says:

    Like Pat Tillman’s 2004 friendly-fire death, the nature of Yoni Netanyahu’s 1976 death at Entebbe was covered up the IDF. Yoni and Pat Tillman were eerily similar characters, both driven by a sense of integrity, honesty and conviction. As was Rachel Corrie, who was Pat Tillman’s hero.

    In his mother’s book, “Boots on the Ground by Dusk,” Mary Tillman wrote: “I remember picking up the article [about Rachel Corrie’s death] from the same spot more than a year ago [in 2003] and asking Pat, “Who’s this?” “That’s my hero,” Pat said. “She was a stud; she had a lot of guts.”.

    It’s ironic that while Rachel was a hero to Pat Tillman, she is viewed with contempt by Yoni’s family. Iddo Netanyahu said that he feels "that there is an inherent incompatibility in the joining together, in one evening, of a play based on my brother Yoni's letters [“To Pay the Price”] with the play 'My Name Is Rachel Corrie.”.

It looks from here like a really bad weekend in Israel. Some 40-odd rockets were fired from Gaza at southern Israel within 48 hours, as far as Beersheva.
