Israel's Anti-Rachel Corrie Verdict

by Outraged American taxpayer Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012 at 12:05 PM

Israel's verdict against Rachel Corrie, blaming her for her own death, was paid for with our tax dollars, billion a year, as Israel is just an American military base to protect US oil profits in the Middle East and Israel does not make one move without explicit instructions from the US capitalist class, represented by the US government.

Israel's verdict against Rachel Corrie, blaming her for her own death, was paid for with our tax dollars, billion a year, as Israel is just an American military base to protect US oil profits in the Middle East and Israel does not make one move without explicit instructions from the US capitalist class, represented by the US government.

From:

Rachel Corrie was a 23-year-old American peace activist from Olympia, Washington, who was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer on 16 March 2003, while undertaking nonviolent direct action to protect the home of a Palestinian family from demolition.

From: http://rachelcorriefoundation.org/blog/2012/08/28/attorney-hussein-abu-husseins-statement-on-verdict-in-corrie-wrongful-death-lawsuit

Attorney Hussein Abu Hussein’s statement on verdict in Corrie wrongful death lawsuit

Posted in News and Updates, Trial, Trial Press Releases on August 28, 2012 by Dave.

(Haifa, Israel – August 28, 2012) – While not surprising, this verdict is yet another example of where impunity has prevailed over accountability and fairness. Rachel Corrie was killed while non-violently protesting home demolitions and injustice in Gaza, and today, this court has given its stamp of approval to flawed and illegal practices that failed to protect civilian life. In this regard, the verdict blames the victim based on distorted facts and it could have been written directly by the state attorneys.

We knew from the beginning that we had an uphill battle to get truthful answers and justice, but we are convinced that this verdict distorts the strong evidence presented in court, and contradicts fundamental principles of international law with regard to protection of human rights defenders. In denying justice in Rachel Corrie’s killing, this verdict speaks to the systemic failure to hold the Israeli military accountable for continuing violations of basic human rights.



*******************

The real uphill battle is in the United States, teaching Americans not to vote for the twin pro-Israel parties of war and fascism, the Democrat-Republicans, but instead to vote for those that support the Palestinian liberation struggle, such as the socialist Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party.

To that end, please do your homework by reading the following books and websites to understand US imperialism in the Middle East, and Israel's role as the junior partner of US imperialism:

The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by Ilan Pappe

(2006) Oneworld Publications, ISBN 978-1-85168-555-4

(Has full details on the 1948 to present mass murder of boys and men, rape and murder of girls and women and theft of Palestinian land all planned by David Ben-Gurion, first president of Israel, and cohorts, as Ben-Gurion described in his diary quoted in Pappe’s book.)

Israel-Palestine on Record by Howard Friel and Richard Falk

(2007) Verso, ISBN 978-1-84467-109-0 (Contains eyewitness testimony for 2000 to 2006 of Israeli destruction of Palestinian homes and the horrors of daily life in Occupied Palestine due to daily Israeli terrorism, all paid for with billion US tax dollars annually, making Israel the 4th largest military gang in the world).

The Transfer Agreement by Edwin Black

http://www.transferagreement.com/

The Third Reich and the Palestine Question by Francis Nicosia

(1985) University of Texas Press, ISBN 0-292-72731-3

Walled: Israeli Society at an Impasse by Sylvain Cypel

(2005, 2006) Other Press, ISBN 13:978-1-5905 1-210-4

(A good early history of the apartheid wall and history and contemporary life of Israel and its relationship to the US as a military base. The lack of separation of church and state is evident as “All Israeli students study the Hebrew Bible in public school for several hours a week, from the elementary grades through high school (knowledge of the Bible is tested on the high school exit examination.)” (p. 177) Superstition and militarism clearly go together This is a sign of an extremely backward society).

A Wall in Palestine by Rene Backman

(2006, 2010) Picador/St. Martin’s Press, NY ISBN 978-0-312-42781-8

(Good maps of the apartheid wall and description of resistance to it; it is clearly a land grab as there are means of going through wall and thus it has nothing to do with security; also describes segregated roads and racist license system).

An Israeli in Palestine by Jeff Halper (an American who moved to Israel in 1973 at age 27, is a professor of anthropology, is the leader of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions and supports the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions Campaign against Israel described in Appendix 4). (2008) Pluto Press, ISBN 978-0-7453-2226-1. “There is not even a civil mechanism by which Jewish, Christian, and Muslim citizens of Israel can marry each other since personal status, citizenship, marriage, death, inheritance, is regulated by religious and not civil law.” p. 76

Palestine Inside Out by Saree Makdisi, (2008, 2010) Norton Press, ISBN 978-0-393-33844-7. With a beautiful foreword by Alice Walker, comparing the racist horrors of Zionist Israel to white racism in the USA, Makdisi, a Palestinian-American professor of English literature at UCLA, writes a detailed account of the daily horrors of life in Occupied Palestine. His periodic sections “By the Numbers” offer useful statistics, his maps are plentiful, and his entire book is a ringing indictment of the mental illness that is religion and the anti-women horror of theocratic states. As Americans read it, we must remember that this is all paid for with our tax dollars and supported 100% by every single Democratic and Republican politician at every level of government. It is opposed by all socialist parties and the Green Party.

Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews, Vol. 3 by Alan Hart (2005, 2010) Clarity Press, ISBN 0-932863-69-8/978-0-932863-69-0. Alan Hart, a former ITN (part of British news agency that produces outstanding Channel 4 of UK) and BBC Panorama correspondent, covers the horrors of Zionism in Israel and its relationship to the United States from 1967 to January 2010 from the perspective of a non-Jewish journalist perspective with lots of worthwhile insights.
