Palestinians: Rachel Corrie was a “Bitch”
Rachel Corrie and other female activists: “nasty foreign bitches” whom “our Palestinian young men are following around.”
by Bill Levinson
Jerry Gordon brought “Who Killed Rachel Corrie” by Lenny Ben-David to our attention. It shows that, among other things, young Palestinian men regarded Corrie and other female activists as “foreign bitches” who were there for their sexual gratification.
- An anonymous letter was circulating which referred to Corrie and the other expatriate women in Rafah as “nasty foreign bitches” whom “our Palestinian young men are following around.”
The article also asks a question we have been asking for years. The ghoul in question is Joseph Smith, aka Joseph Carr:
- I’m troubled by several elements of the Corrie case:
We’re all shocked by the horrifying pictures of Corrie lying on the ground, broken and bleeding. But has anyone ever asked what kind of ghoul would snap pictures rather than rush to her aid or run to get help?
Numerous pictures of Corrie standing defiantly in front of an Israeli bulldozer appeared in the media, but upon investigation it transpired that not a single one was from the incident that killed her. Some were taken hours before the fatal incident with a different bulldozer; others were sloppy photoshopped forgeries. Why were there photos after she was injured and not before?
If Craig and Cindy Corrie were not more interested in media attention than in genuine justice for their daughter, they also would be asking these questions.
