Excusing Murder for Fifteen Years and Counting...

Rachel Corrie

Today is the day, fifteen years ago, that Rachel Corrie was brutally murdered under the blade of an Israeli bulldozer.

Israel and their Zionist supporters (in spite of eye witness accounts, damning official statements and a history of on-going threats of death) exonerated themselves from blame, but the rest of the world does not.  

If you support Israel you support murder of young, unarmed women.  Fuck you and rot in what ever hell you believe in for that.

For the rest of us...  lets remembers the brave, caring person she was.  She stood up to oppression and it took a murderous Israel bulldozer to knock her down...  her legacy refuses, however, to be crushed by Israel's atrocities, war crimes, ethnic cleansing or terrorism.

Also, on the anniversary of her death, listen to what a brave, brave caring 5th grader named Rachel thought about things... (and with a huge fuck you to all of the people who say she was "accidentally" killed and was only there to get "noticed"!)

we live in a shitty world.  I don't know what to do about israel.  I barely know what to do with america anymore.  children are mowed down by tractors in israel by a goddamned government.  children being mowed down in their schools right here because their government doesn't give much of a shit about them or anyone else.

how can we talk about ANY government anymore?  how can we promote any philosophy?  because in the end, with all the people in the world AND PRODUCING MORE AND MORE - we to find jobs for and feed them, and protect them, educate and house them AND take care of their health.  in the end, ALL governments are hideous failures.

a child is mowed down by a tractor.  a child is shot 40 times sitting in s classroom.  a child starves on barren land.  or drowns trying to get to a fertile place.  and the fuckign world turns and I hate that truly - in the face of it all - that all we can do is cry and rail and want a better world for them.
