Leftist terrorist collaborator Rachel Corrie was accidentally killed by an Israeli bulldozer in 2003 as it demolished homes concealing weapon smuggling tunnels between Egypt and Gaza. Her parents filed a civil suit against the Israeli military, which a court has now rejected:
An Israeli court on Monday rejected a lawsuit brought against the military by the parents of a U.S. activist crushed to death in 2003 by an army bulldozer as she tried to block its path in the Gaza Strip, ruling the army was not at fault for her death.
The bulldozer driver has said he didn’t see 23-year-old Rachel Corrie, a pro-Palestinian activist who opposed the military’s demolition of Palestinian homes. The military deemed her March 2003 death to be accidental, but Corrie’s parents were not satisfied by the army investigation and filed a civil lawsuit two years later.
Explaining the district court’s ruling, judge Oded Gershon said Corrie “put herself in a dangerous situation” and called her death “the result of an accident she brought upon herself.” He said the military conducted a proper investigation, and rejected the Corrie family’s request for a symbolic $1 in damages and legal expenses.
Corrie was part of the radical leftist International Solidarity Movement, which has found common cause with and interacts with a number of Palestinian terror groups. My heart goes out to her parents as parents, but I despise Rachel Corrie’s politics, idiocy, and the symbol her death became for other Israel-hating terror supporters.
