Human Shield Story: US activist Rachel Corrie remembered in film

Seven years ago American peace activist Rachel Corrie was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer while protesting against the demolition of Palestinian homes in Gaza. Her parents are now suing the Israeli government. The trial got underway on the anniversary of her death. RT caught up with filmmaker Simone Bitton, who made it her mission to find justice.

In Her memory and all fallen victims of Israel’s crimes,
light the flame of freedom, boycott Israel, end apartheid!

Her eyes are Palestinian

Her name is Palestinian

Her dress and sorrow Palestinian

Her kerchief, her feet and body Palestinian

Her words and silence Palestinian

Her voice Palestinian

Her birth and her death Palestinian

Mahmoud Darwish

    That Rachel, an American, died standing up to a tyranny which has been funded and supported by her own country is a terrible irony.

    The Palestinians, en masse, should sue the Israeli Government too for the loss of their freedom and the privation and brutality that have had to endure for sixty years.

    Hope this makes a difference to this, “Apartheid is Okay … as long as I do it” stance by Israel, a stance sanctioned by all of the cowards in national governments throughout the ‘civilized’ world!

    From the “Chambers English Dictionary”:

    1) apartheid: segregation and seperate development.

    2) sociopath/sociopathic: any of several personality disorders resulting in asocial or antisocial behaviour.

    Israel practises the first and completely blind to the second.
