The girl and her activist friends, including Palestinians provided safe cover for some terrorists (that was reported in several news stories at the time). Corrie granted herself permission to violate the laws of a country trying to protect it's citizens ("The Israeli army had been undertaking systematic house demotions in the densely populated border area, trying to halt shooting and mortar attacks against soldiers and Jewish settlers who used the route"). She had no legal or moral right to be in that closed area and she not only put herself in danger, but others as well with her self-important, self righteous attitude and actions. Where are any remarks or writings by Corrie when Israel was first attacked by suicide bombers blowing up innocent men, women and children? Pardon me if my sympathy goes to the many Israelis murdered, maimed and forgotten by "do-gooders" like Rachel Corrie.

These young activists think they are bullet proof, they think they can stand in front of an active moving army and the army will stop for them, in the mean time the terrorists are using them (and their own children) as human shields. No wonder they get killed. I have no sympathy for those stupid enough to try to stop bulldozers or bullets their bodies. 100 tones of steel verses a human body I would bet on the bull dozer any time.
