State Department Backs the Jew-Hating Corries
Laura: Their daughter put herself in the pathway of a bulldozer in the cause of supporting genocidal terrorists. Our islam-appeasing government is helping the Corries appeal the verdict of their meritless and politically motivated suit against the IDF. This is the same State Department that opposed a suit against Iran filed by American victims of jihad terrorism. This adds to the State Department’s long historical record of hostility to Jews and Israel and favoritism towards Arab and islamic nations.
MS. NULAND: Can you tell me who you are?
QUESTION: Sure. Josh Lederman with AP.
MS. NULAND: Nice to see you, Josh.
QUESTION: Nice to see you.
MS. NULAND: So we’re double-teamed here on the AP. Welcome.
QUESTION: Thank you. Now that an Israeli court has –
MS. NULAND: It takes two of you to cover for Matt and for – (laughter)

QUESTION: No problem.
MS. NULAND: I couldn’t resist.
QUESTION: An Israeli court today ruled against the family of Rachel
Corrie, the American who was killed by a bulldozer in Gaza. Is the U.S.
satisfied with that investigation, and is the U.S. disappointed that the Israeli
military hasn’t taken responsibility for her death?
MS. NULAND: Well, first of all, we reiterate our condolences to the
Corrie family on the tragic death of their daughter, Rachel. As you know, we’ve
worked with the family all through this process, and we will continue to provide
consular support. We understand the family’s disappointment with the outcome of
the trial. Under Israeli law, the family has the right to appeal the verdict,
and we’ve seen reports that they are considering doing that. So we will see how
this proceeds going forward.
