Rachel Corrie verdict shock

Not really.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The death of the pro-Palestinian activist Rachel Corrie was not caused by the negligence of the Israeli state or army, a judge has ruled, dismissing a civil lawsuit brought by the family.

 

Corrie's death was an accident for which the state of Israel was not responsible, said the judge at Haifa district court.

 

There had been no fault in the internal Israeli military investigation clearing the driver of the bulldozer that crushed Corrie to death in March 2003 of any blame. The judge said the driver had not seen the young American activist.

 

Corrie could have saved herself by moving out of the zone of danger as any reasonable person would have done, said Judge Oded Gershon. He ruled that no compensation would be paid and the family would not have to pay costs of the case.

 

After the ruling was read out by the judge, the family's lawyer, Hussein Abu Hussein, said: "We knew from the beginning that we had an uphill battle to get truthful answers and justice. But we are concerned that this verdict denies the strong evidence and contradicts the principles of international law."

Not really much of an attempt to stop a bulldozer if you aren't in the bulldozer's way really.

 

The driver could have avoided crushing her and reversing over her. He could have had a look for someone in a bright red jacket with a loudhailer, for instance. Plenty of other people saw her.

You'd think a reasonable person wouldnt have run her over either, twice, but that doesnt really fit the narrative for Israel does it?

so you are claiming the driver saw her drove over her and then reversed over her on purpose .

 

Yeah, like that dick in front of the tank in Tiananmen Square, the big idiot!

 

so you compare a person fighting for democracy in HIS OWN COUNTRY, to an American in Gaza shielding terrorists

Look at the unreasonable c***:

 

 

Bet he hadn't done a risk assessment either.

 

Totally irresponsible.

Is that another question?

 

It is like debating with the f***ing Riddler.

 

Anyway, the Israelis have already established the principle that any f***** can march into Gaza so don't see what her nationality has to do with it.

 

Defending terrorists or defying them? That is the question eh?

Of course thats a possiblity. The verdict that was given flies in the face of many of the eyewitness accounts.

Maybe you should question why they gave that verdict?
