I am afraid you are mistaken. Your daughter has become a symbol for dangerous foolhardiness. She essentially committed suicide as an empty gesture to assist murderers and terrorists.

You want the world to mourn for your daughter, who died while working with monsters out to murder our children. On the pages of anti-Semitic propaganda web magazines you denounce Israel, but you do not have a single word of sympathy for the families of the thousands of innocent Israeli victims of the terrorists with whom your daughter chose to ally herself.

  1. her only good deed.

  2. Jarrod Muhary says:

    You jump in front of a moving bulldozer you get squished – end of story. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to work that out. Her parents should look inside themselves and ask how they raised a traitor to their nation who burns their own flag… I would be ashamed if my daughter grew up to be like that.

  3. Anonymous says:

    I agree with most of what the author wrote. However, despite the driver's denials, I believe he saw Rachel Corrie. Whether he did or not, Miss Corrie certainly saw the bulldozer. She "went all in" when the stakes were her life and she had no hand at all. Sorry she died, but she made a stupid decision and it cost her her life.

  4. Geoff Klein says:

    israel would have been liberated from the corries, had the judge done the correct thing from day one and thrown out the case. by allowing this to drag on and keeping the corries name in the news, they have accomplished their goals.

    rachel remains a saint, the israel haters can say that the idf are immune from prosecution and either the corries appeal and drag this on, or they go to the jew/israel hating international court.

    was always a lose/lose proposition.

    that is a pic of the d9 with a infantryman in front of it. note the cab

    the eyewitnesses stated that corrie, a 5 foot 2 inch girl, sat in front of the moving dozer. no way could he have seen her

    so you can believe what you wish

  6. Very interesting all the ignorant statements on here. Then again looking at the profile pictures it looks like a bunch of hillbilly white trailer trash. The Israelis were bulldozing houses that Palestinian families had lived in for hundreds of years. Yes she was a fool to be sitting in front of a bulldozer. Then again the bulldozer should not have been there destroying homes that families still live in. Israel builds illegal settlements and American soldiers die. All Hail South Africa, oops I mean Israel. Come on Iran.

  7. Annabelle Malo says:

    I was going to write that it takes a special kind of vile person to write something like this…and I was not too surprised to see who that vile person was. I was not expecting the equally as vile people who would be depraved enough to agree with the author…though I'm not why that would surprise me. Sick soulless ziobot losers.

  8. Nice to see that you only have invective and smears instead of reasoned arguements. Instead plenty of disgusting Arab/Hamas propaganda galore. Oops, why would that be???

  9. Steven, don't be bothered by hate-filled pro-terror congenitally antisemitic French fascists, please!

    You wrote the appropriate letter. It pinned the necessary nerves. Thank G_d!

    Blood is not thicker than water in terms of G_d's realms. It is either you are for the L_rd or against. May the bereaved parents come to grips of facts over their late daughter's false and evil causes.
