I submitted an article about the Israeli court decision against the Corrie family regarding her 2003 death, to Truthout a few weeks ago. It’s just now been published and I hope you’ll visit and read it. I dissected the claims of the State against Corrie and used the defense’s words from the court records to impeach it. One of the most astonishing things said there, is that Corrie wanted to be a martyr for the Palestinian cause: in effect, that she committed suicide by stepping in front of that Caterpillar D9 tractor. The only suitable response is rage: rage against the injustice of it all, rage against Israel’s unmitigated chutzpah.
