Rachel Corrie's Parents Seek a 16th Minute of Infamy

rachel-corrie-flag.jpg


The terrorist loving parents of Palestinian martyr Rachel Corrie are seeking to extend their 15 minutes of fame.

They are now suing Caterpillar Inc, because Caterpillar made the bulldozer which Corrie used in her attempt to win a Darwin Award.

Of course the AP in their usual clueless way makes Corrie out to be the victim.

Rachel Corrie, a student at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, was standing in front of a home in a refugee camp in Rafah, a Gaza Strip city near the Egyptian border, on March 16, 2003, when a bulldozer plowed over her.
So in the AP version... "She was just standing there, when out of the blue, this bulldozed magically appeared and PLOWED her over. Nobody even knew it was coming."

Her parents are also suing Israel. (of course)

I wear it as a Badge of Honor that I voted for the President these people campaigned against.

More than you ever wanted to know about the background.

From July 2003:

To the tune of "Battle Hymn of the Republic"

Rachel Corrie went to Palestine
to free the Arab mob,
burning flags and sleeping round
and acting like a yob.
She sought to save the pimps and punks
and generate a sob,
but a D-9 ended that.

[chorus]
Rachel Corrie got run over,
Rachel Corrie got run over,
Rachel Corrie got run over,
a D-9 ended that.

She climbed atop a mound of dirt
to stop the dreaded foe.
Her heart was full of hubris
her enemy named Moe.
The D-9 was large and loud
and so she turned to go
but a D-9 ended that.

[chorus]

Now Rachel lies flattened
beneath the Army tread.
Her pimps and pushers honor her
repeating what she said.
But nothing makes up for the fact
that she's really, really dead.
A D-9 ended that.

[chorus]

But I might try, anyway. Something about the subtle racism of Corrie, in presuming that the Israelis wouldn't hesitate to bulldoze Palestinians, but wouldn't dare harm a hair on her white, Western head...

I think I woulda gone with "Asshats" or "Dumbasses" for a category, though.

I remember railing against the internet intifada idiots when they used a bunch of misleading pictures to portray the Corrie event. Namley using shots from different areas (which had different dozers) in an attempt to show the story took place differently than it really did.

The Corrie family has always struck me as naive and ignorant about their daughters actions.

Regardless, her supporters are mostly moonbat idiots, who have little or no understanding of the situation in Israel, or who champion the Palestinian cause without questioning the evil tactics used.

To add some humor, I recall the "protests" that took place here in the US about Corries death:

Steve L.:

Any lawyer will tell you that the first rule of filing a lawsuit is to sue anyone and everyone that could even remotely, possibly, in even a minute way have anything to do with an incident. If the jury wants to lay blame somewhere, it gives them more options. Sooner or later, they will hit upon something, somewhere, that someone did and hang the judgment on them. Including a major corporation makes that even easier because "they have plenty of money." If the jury thinks her death was wrongful, they will find a rationale for paying her. Hopefully, the judge will be smart enough to dismiss the cases against the silly defendants.

Maybe we need a little reminder here of what the law says, and we need the facts on what the lawsuit actually alleges? ya think?
here's a couple facts for us: The lawsuit is against the US bulldozer manufacturer 'Caterpillar', because it supplies Israeli forces with bulldozers and other machines, knowingly used to violate human rights.

According to the federal lawsuit, Caterpillar, Inc. violated international and state law by providing specially designed bulldozers to Israeli forces that it knew would be used to demolish homes and endanger civilians.

This is illegal people. You don't have to like it - but maybe you should understand it before you pop off? It is illegal to sell a product to a person or entity if you know that that product will be used in an illegal manner, and in a lethal manner.

Dissent is patriotism. It's the first, and most important of our rights gauranteed to us in our system.

Don't any of you care about anything enough to take a stand and speak up, or all you all just willing to go along with everything, as long as it doesn't interupt Miller-time?

ps mr. piss-poor poet - she sought to save the home of a pharmacist, his wife, and their children, none of whom had any ties to terrorism. if foreign troops every come to knock down your home - maybe you'll be lucky enough to have somebody willing enough to stand up for you? maybe you'll just evacuate your home when you are told to, no questions asked, and go live with relatives, because they don't want your house there anymore?

if it was me? i'd be a wuss and leave. i bet we'd all be wusses. maybe that's why we are all online ragging on a dead college student - because she was brave, and it reminds us that we are wusses?

Mike:

Specially designed bulldozers that endanger civilians. What?? Are you kidding me? I imagine that any bulldozer would endanger a civilian if they were dumb enough to get in the way of it when the driver obviously can't see him/her.

Give us a break. Go and make Rachel Corrie your martyr, to me she was just an unfortunate collegiate brat who got too caught up in a movement and took it one step too far. Her parents have no one else to blame for her death except their daughter.

Why do you say that? Because Dennis Prager tells you Evergreen is a liberal college, therefore they are to blame (partly) for her death? Oh, right, they contributed to her state of mind, which you point out was stupidity. How so? What are you basing any of this on?

Btw I think suing the manufacturer is stupid. You don't blame a car company for someone running you over, you blame the driver.

Hugh's argument made me lau... (Below threshold)
Steve L.:

Hugh's argument made me laugh so hard that I almost peed in my pants.

First, do you think that Israel went into the local Caterpillar dealer and said, "Gimme one of them thar bulldozers so I can go violate me some human rights?" No, they went in and ordered a bulldozer. Sure, it was "specially designed" but what exactly does that mean? Does it mean that it had the operator's compartment armored? In that region of the world, that would be a wise thing to do on ANY piece of equipment. Maybe it was for building roads. Maybe it was for clearing lots for new housing. Maybe, it was for demolishing houses. There is not one single one of those activities that could reasonably be foreseen as being a "human rights" issue.

Second, in your scenario, anything anyone sells to Israel could be held to the same standard. I assume that's what you would like anyway from the tone of your argument. General Motors sells the Israeli military trucks and the IDF drives in those trucks to enforce the laws of Isael. Is GM liable? I mean they are military trucks, so GM should have known they were using them for military purposes.

Third, who decides that human rights are being violated? I ahven't read or heard anything that suggests that tearing down those houses was a human rights violation. Wnating it to be so doesn't make it so.

Now, Hugh, go away.

And, on that particular day... (Below threshold)

And, on that particular day, according to both the actual photographs and the Israeli Army, the bulldozer was there to clear brush and level some land. The house was not scheduled to be destroyed.

And, the tunnel into the house, through which terrorists smuggled weapons, drug dealers smuggled drugs and pimps smuggled whores suggest that the "poor" pharmacist probably had a nice thing going. Until he got caught.

After all, Arafat was only an engineer and Assad is an eye doctor. And Hitler was a painter.

BTW, the laws of physics will not be denied. Bulldozers are slower and far less responsive than even out of shape American coeds. If you don't want to get hit by the train, don't stand in front of it.

Wow, Hugh sure showed all of us, eh?

According to the federal lawsuit, Caterpillar, Inc. violated international and state law by providing specially designed bulldozers to Israeli forces that it knew would be used to demolish homes and endanger civilians.

This is illegal people.

Says who? "International law" may arguably apply to the U.S. government -- it doesn't, but that's another point -- but it most certainly doesn't hold weight over a private American company. Caterpillar violated no U.S. law in selling bulldozers to the Israeli Army, any more than Apache did by selling them helicopter gunships -- which are much more obviously intended to kill people and destroy things. And there is nothing "illegal" about the Israeli operations, UN babble notwithstanding. This lawsuit is a publicity stunt, nothing more.

It gets more amusing from there:

Dissent is patriotism. It's the first, and most important of our rights gauranteed to us in our system.

I'm getting a little tired of this annoying cliché. Dissent in America is neither patriotic nor treasonous -- it's merely an exercise of one's rights. (By the logic above, being religious in the U.S. is likewise "patriotism," since it's the second right guaranteed by the 1st Amendment.)

Of course, this point isn't even germane to Corrie, who was not dissenting against American practices, but rather actively interfering in Israeli actions againt Arab terrorism. To call this "patriotism" is laughable on its face, much like the rest of Hugh's impassioned but silly argument.

if it was me? i'd be a wuss and leave. i bet we'd all be wusses. maybe that's why we are all online ragging on a dead college student - because she was brave, and it reminds us that we are wusses?

In what way was she brave? If she really believed that the Israelis were out to get her, she was merely being stupid, since it's not as if she could fight back or make a difference. Of course, she didn't believe this -- she assumed, like most other Western protestors, that those evil Israelis wouldn't dare go through her, and she could delay or stop them -- hence the brightly colored clothing. Well, she miscalculated, and ended up getting squashed.

Does this bother me? Not a whit. And not because I'm in awe of her "bravery" -- it's because I'm disgusted by her arrogant presumption that as a Westerner, she is more valuable than the people she was trying to shield. Not to mention her working along with, and shilling on behalf of, terrorists who would happily use the weapons they smuggled through tunnels she was trying to shield, to kill lots of genuinely innocent and worthwhile human beings.

I don't rejoice in the loss of Rachel Corrie; I wish she had been smarter and stayed out of a conflict she didn't know or understand, and in which she took the side of child-murderers. But she made her (stupid) choice, and she took the consequences, and that's justice.

Ok, so its not your traditional university, fine. Are you saying that if she had gone to a traditional school, gotten regular grades (Evergreen's grading system doesn't seem so bad to me, if a bit hippyish), did not create her own classes (which you can do at very many traditional universities), then she wouldn't have gone to Palestine and sat in front of a bulldozer? You don't think there may have been other things going on here? How come we don't hear more stories about dead, foolish Evergreen students if they are pushing them towards such ends? I did my undergrad studies at a traditional, state university that is very heavy on research, science, and medicine. There were still socialists and "free palestine" groups handing out flyers and talking about going to the ME to be human shields, and instructors who were sympathetic to their causes (and ones that were not). But you seem to simply be on an "university professors are all Ward Churchills and terrorist sympathizers" kick, so I doubt that would convince you of anything.

Besides, since you banned me from your site after my first time commenting for little or no reason that I can discern, and ignored my requests at explanation via email, I doubt you are interested in any sort of honest debate. So have fun on your anti-university crusade, Yankee-boy.

"According to the federal lawsuit, Caterpillar, Inc. violated international and state law by providing specially designed bulldozers to Israeli forces that it knew would be used to demolish homes and endanger civilians." Uh, that is according to the filers of the suit, who filed in a Federal court - you seem to imply it is the government. Oh, and if by "specially designed" they mean the armor addons, that is done in Israel. Otherwise, "special design" just means Caterpillar makes more than one type of 'dozer.

And someone mentioned the D9 model. Yeah, the organization she was involved with said that, but they were way off-base: the D9 is over two stories tall! The Israeli Defense Force website has a couple of pics, if you can't find it on Caterpillar's site. It is indeed a "special design", meant for making a road or runway in a single pass! The 'dozer Ms. Corrie was run over by can be found on almost any construction site.

And Ms. Corrie also violated her organization's rules. She was alone (the others were still in the house finishing lunch), and she went to her knees (making it difficult to move out of the way) - both against her training. These points are based on quotes made by the others who were there before they got back to group HQ and were told to say other things and not mention these...

Truthfully, individuals and groups on both sides of any modern conflict can be found guilt of inflicting attrocities on their opposition. Any individual who deprives another of their basic freedom to live is guilty of just that. You can always "justify" actions. Daily everybody overlooks human attrocities. People are blinded by money and their own pride. The worlds not going to change any time soon.
It saddens me greatly to see people still bashing Corrie. Its not her fault she was murdered. You can only blame the driver.
In the end we are all responsible for our own action.

Does anyone remember that famous picture from the Tiananmen Square masacre of a single man halting a line of Chinese tanks?
This mam, like Corrie, was standing up for someone else, whether they we're right or wrong. It takes a lot of guts to do that. I don't think either of them steped out believing they were not putting their life in danger. they did it because they felt at the time what they were doing was the right thing to do. Fortunately the man delayed the tanks and survived. Corries wasn't so fortunate, but you can't blame her for standing up in what she believed.

In anycase its time you Corrie bashers grow up.
