Israel’s High Court Hears Appeal of Suit by Family of Rachel Corrie -- Mondoweiss

Please to go link below to see great pic of the resilient Corrie family at the hearing.


Last week the family of Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist who was crushed to death by an Israeli military bulldozer in the Gaza Strip in 2003 while trying to protect a Palestinian house from demolition, appealed a civil suit to Israel’s high court. In 2012 parents Craig and Cindy Corrie lost a Haifa district trial. The judges ruled because Corrie, 23, was in a “combat zone,” the soldier who killed her and the Israeli military could not be held liable.
