There have been countless articles about Rachel's senseless death over the last few years, and a deluge of articles over the last few days about the outrageous Israeli court verdict concerning the Corrie family's civil trial. I want to share one article in particular with my own readers, that comes from a fellow real truth seeker, Desert Peace, who writes the blog: Desert Peace, at www.desertpeace.wordpress.com. It is entitled: "A Reminder That Rachel Corrie Was Not Alone". This important article shows how there have been others, especially other Palestinians, that have endured the same injustices by the criminal Israelis, and they too should not be forgotten. I have that entire article right here for all of my own readers to view for themselves, and of course some of my own thoughts and comments to follow:
A poem I wrote March 16, 2008
I am afraid, she wrote
Want to Dance
I can’t believe
and so many of her remain
in the world
in her words
in our hearts
But today, with a lump in my throat
what paces in my thought
That strange phrase from a holy book
“they plan but God is the best of planners”
Nervously I ask it to slow down
explain yourself to a refugee spirit
what do you plan for the wretched souls
Why Hiam and Marwa?
Why Faris and Al-Durra?
And who is this divine?
In us all?
Do I learn something on this fifth anniversary
of death of another innocent
Is it misery and pain?
Love and action?
Questions or answers?
Or will all I am left with is that smell of the air of Palestine
and the soil, that soaked soil
that Rachel’s last breath took in
to give us the Spring
of our understanding.
Video shows it was cold blooded murder
Jewish Voices for Peace deplores verdict

What has become of our nation? Netanyahu regime has destroyed our livelihood, dreams, values and future; turned Israel into racist, violent state by Yael Gvirtz
NTS Notes: I have definitely been seething over the last few days with absolute outrage at the laughable and disturbing "verdict" handed down by the most evil Israeli kangaroo court system. As I stated before, that verdict was already set in stone the moment Rachel was murdered by the criminals in the IDF.
But again, we must not forget the other innocent Palestinians themselves that have been murdered by these monsters. There have been countless innocent women and children alone that have been shot and killed in acts of senseless murder by the IDF in the illegally occupied territories, and those murders will continue until everyone says enough and cuts off all aid and support for the criminal state of Israel itself.
I will say one thing about the laughable verdict in the murder of Rachel Corrie. I can guarantee that by taking this route, more and more people than ever before are now seeing the criminal state of Israel for what it really is. These monsters think they have won this battle, but in the long run their own stupidity will see them losing this war against the rest of humanity!
Rachel Corrie... I for one will never forget you...
More to come
