Let the Beatification of Rachel Corrie Continue!
I received this in my email box.....
"A Tribute to Rachel Corrie"
With Her Parents Craig and Cindy Corrie
When: Monday, May 3rd @ 7:00pm
Where: Tressider, Oak Lounge
On March 16, 2003, 23 year-old Rachel Corrie, a nonviolent peace activist,
was killed when an Israeli soldier bulldozed her as she was trying to
prevent the demolition of a physician's home in Palestine.

Rachel Corrie was not a "Peace Activist". She was a girl who took sides in the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict, and died in the process. For more information on this, visit Little Green Footballs "tribute" to her, another view by Mother Jones casting her in a positive light, and a thorough fisking of that article.
