This piece in AlJazeera today gives good insight into the continuing story of Rachel Corrie’s life and death. Included is a brief interview with Rachel’s mother upon hearing the result of the case in Israeli court.
“Twenty-three-year-old Rachel Corrie travelled to Gaza at the height of the second intifada intending to initiate a sister city project between Olympia, Washington, her home town, and Rafah as part of her senior-year project at Evergreen College. After a two-day seminar in the offices of the International Solidarity Movement in the West Bank, she continued on to Rafah to join ISM members, who were demonstrating against the Israeli military’s massive demolitions of houses on the Egyptian border. Less than two months after her arrival, on March 16, 2003, Corrie was crushed to death by a Caterpillar D9R Israeli military bulldozer.”
