This post is a remembrance of a tragic murder of a 23 year old American girl, a humanitarian and human rights activist who was run over by an israeli bulldozer which then backed up and ran over her for a second time crushing her scull and rib cage.

You can also read The Rachel Corrie Story: Standing Alone, found at most books stores.

Rachel was alone in front of the house as we were trying to get them to stop," he said. "She waved for the bulldozer to stop and waved. She fell down and the bulldozer kept going. We yelled 'stop, stop,' and the bulldozer didn't stop at all. It had completely run over her and then it reversed and ran back over her."
-from Ha'aretz

From this photo, there can be no doubt that the Israeli bulldozer driver could clearly see Rachel and that this was no accident.



Rachel's skull and rib cage were totally crushed by the US made and Israeli manned bulldozer (which is a US taxpayer's gift to Israel).

ISM activists mourn Rachel's death and show her US passport.

Candle light vigil for Rachel.
