Rachel Corrie was in a foreign country defying some one Else's government. Stupid stupid stupid. She is a candidate for a Darwin award.
EdS check the US gov site Israel receives by far the most AID of any of the many countries that we give AID to......all of whom are far larger. Ed I am not mad, I am simply not going to lie to myself and say that Israel receives by far the most AID because they are a "loyal" ally.......that is complete horsesh't. Israels lobby is using US taxpayer money to put a bipartisan stranglehold on our government/politicians......and American taxpayers are footing the bill!
Look Israel is a nation state like any other, but I feel as United States sovereign citizens we should be able to recognize that Israel has repeatedly spied on the US since 1948 and is currently accused of the largest espionage ring in US history. Just as US interests aren't a main concern of Israel I feel we should treat Israel the same way........EdS for Christs sake the Israelis sold US nuclear secrets to the USSR courtesy of Pollard in return for the release of 20 Russian Jews!
I agree with you that Rachel Corrie was a stupid "kid" STRESS the word kid........she was unarmed and simply defending a palestinians house......does that justify running her over with a bulldozer, and then backing over her a second time???? EdS you were a policeman I can't believe that an officer of the law would condone such tactics!
