I hope this post isnt breaking the new rules.

It sure isnt intended that way. Its horrible and I guess it gets snowed under with all the attention on the other subject.

Direct after posting this I will send a PM to one or two mods to point them to this.

\tMarch 20, 2003, 09:55 AM

\tRAFAH - American peace activist Rachel Corrie was murdered by an Israeli bulldozer driver on 16 March 2003 while attempting to defend a Palestinian doctors home from demolition.

Warning the story in the thread is not a pretty one.

one of my friends was very close to rachel corrie. this may seem like a terrible tragedy because it was a white girl from the US, but the same horrible murders are committed on the palestinian people every day. we can't forget that that was what rachel died for.

Israeli Soldiers Take Hostages in Nablus; Attempt to Kill Another US Activist

\tMarch 21, 2003, 10:56 PM

\tRAMALLAH - Israel is using the distraction of the international media during the current attack against Iraq to upscale its activities targeting Palestinians, civil society organizations based in the West Bank and Gaza Strip said today. \t

According to sources, Israeli soldiers today invaded the Old City of Nablus and are currently holding several men, women and children hostage. The Israeli army has also destroyed several houses in the area. In another development, an Israeli soldier shot a US activist and member of GIPP (Grassroots International Protection for Palestinians) in Nablus -- the second Israeli attack against a US citizen this week. Eric Hawanith, 21, from Chicago, was shot in the chest and leg by three rubber-coated steel bullets. He was rushed to hospital by Palestinian paramedics, who were being shot at by Israelis as they attempted to provide Hawanith with first aid.Rachel Corrie, a US peace activist, was murdered by an Israeli in a bulldozer on Sunday as she was demonstrating against the demolition of a home in Rafah, in the Gaza Strip.Israeli forces also invaded al Magazi refugee camp in Gaza today, blowing up one house and shooting at civilians randomly.The Palestine Monitor
