Brain Dead before he was shot

by Limbaugh Sunday, Apr. 13, 2003 at 9:22 PM

ISM are terrorists and commies

The media are once again whining that Israel has shot one of the

communist human

shields from Western campuses seeking to make the Gaza Strip safe for

suicide bombers to mass murder Israeli children.

The Left is putting out its "version" of events. The young Brit was

only running about trying to move some poor innocent Palestinian children

out of the line of fire of the evil Israeli troops who were shooting

Palestinians for no reason. Oh really?

Well we still do not know if the guy was even shot by an Israeli, but

you can be sure he was not just innocently minding his business and simply

protecting children. He is in the Middle East to assist Palestinian

terrorists murder children. He and his communist friends from ISM

routinely provoke and interfere in Israeli military operations, and when

they do so they deserve to be shot.

Meanwhile it turns out this peace-loving peacenik had also served as

a human shield for Saddam except he ran away when he heard the Marines

were coming over-sized, over-sexed, and over there. He decided he was

much safer playing human shield for Hamas terrorists. Here is what the

Jerusalem Post says about the incident:

A report by the IDF gives a different story of the incident. "At about 5

p.m. yesterday an IDF post on the Israeli-Egyptian border in a

Israeli-controlled security zone identified a man who appeared to be

approximately 20 years old, wearing a combat uniform and carrying a


"The man opened fire at the IDF post and IDF forces returned fire using

one bullet, and saw that the person carrying the weapon was wounded by IDF

gunfire. It should be noted that this was the only shooting incident

reported in the immediate area."

The IDF stated that hostile fire has been frequently directed at IDF

troops from this area, including sniper fire, with explosives and grenades

also hurled at IDF forces. It was in this area where Hurndall was thought

to be wounded, the report concluded.

the guy had come from Baghdad!

Israeli army sniper leaves British peace activist brain-dead

By Justin Huggler in Jerusalem

12 April 2003

A British peace activist was pronounced brain-dead yesterday after being

shot in the head by an Israeli army sniper.

Tom Hurndall, 21, from London, was shot while trying to rescue Palestinian

children from a street where they were pinned down by Israeli gunfire.

(sure he was)

He is the third peace activist to be killed or seriously injured in the

occupied territories in the past month.

His fellow activists were beginning to wonder aloud last night if they are

a target of the Israeli army. Mr Hurndall was declared brain-dead on

arrival at a Palestinian hospital in Rafah but there were some reports last

night that his condition might be improving.

Mr Hurndall came to the occupied territories after leaving Baghdad, where

he had travelled as a human shield before the start of the war in Iraq. His

group of activists was in a refugee camp in Rafah near the Egyptian border,

where Israeli soldiers often demolish Palestinian homes because they say

militants use them as cover from which to fire.

The civilian occupants of the houses are left homeless. (The

civilian occupants are the families of suicide bombers and other mass


Mr Hurndall's group intended to stay the night in a tent in a street where

an Israeli tank frequently fires into civilian houses, according to Raphael

Cohen, another British activist who was there when Mr Hurndall was shot.

The Independent has witnessed Israeli tanks firing on civilian houses in

Rafah when there were no militants in the area.

When the activists reached the street, Mr Cohen said, they found it already

under fire and too dangerous to enter.

The gunfire was coming from one of the Israeli army watchtowers on the

Egyptian border, which surround much of Rafah. A group of about 20

Palestinian children ­ the oldest was about 10, according to Mr Cohen, the

rest younger ­ were trapped by gunfire in the street. Mr Hurndall decided

to go into the street with two other activists to bring the children out of

the line of fire, believing they were less likely to be fired on because

they were foreigners.

"The Israeli army was very aware of our presence in the area,'' said Mr Cohen.

He said the activists, who have been sleeping in Palestinian houses that

have been coming under fire, had hung banners around the area saying they

were there. Mr Cohen said Israeli soldiers had "shot the banners to

shreds". The International Solidarity Movement (ISM), of which Mr Hurndall

was a member, has been heavily criticised in Israel as one-sided.

It is pro-Palestinian but the members are unarmed non-combatants.

The shooting of Mr Hurndall comes after Rachel Corrie, an American, became

the first ISM activist to be killed when she was crushed by an Israeli army

bulldozer in Rafah last month. The Israeli army claimed that it was an

accident and said that the driver of the bulldozer did not see her.

Brian Avery, another American activist, was seriously wounded last week

when he was hit in the face by machine-gun fire from an Israeli armoured

personnel carrier in the West Bank city of Jenin.

The Israeli army claimed its soldiers were firing at militants ­ the

activists (Britishspeak for fascist terrorists) who were with Mr

Avery said there were no militants in the area ­

and that the soldiers did not see Mr Avery.
