It's so moving. It's . . . dare I say it . . . it's . . . Juche! It's Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuche!!!!!!!!!!!!! Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuche!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For all the ugliness that the current White House administration and the Neo-con/Zionist Establishment represent, there are indeed shining beacons that remind us and the rest of the world that there is still really a lot of latent and apparent good left in America. If not for anything else worth citing, Rachel Corrie is the embodiment of all that good and more and still remains to many people who love freedom, hate oppression and despise tyranny, a shining beacon of human rights advocacy that will always be looked upon for strength and determination to challenge all the rotten evil that has come to eat away at anything that may be called half way decent and human in this world.
It is not an easy thing to forget Rachel Corrie, although two years has passed since her untimely and tragic death. Two years have passed and to this day every effort is being made to erase her existence and the tragic memory of her untimely and brutal murder by the ugly Zionist ethnic cleansing machine, which she bravely challenged, armed with nothing but her moral values and unlimited courage.Hey, it wasn't ugly. It was a very nice Zionist ethnic cleansing machine. It shone like the sun. It will bulldoze forth wherever evil lurks. Time cannot wither nor custom stale its infinite dozerosity.
Yes, Rachel Corrie was a martyr in all the implications of the word. She gave away the most that any one can give for any cause and she sacrificed her life, which could have been free of pain and agony and might have even been extravagant. In Rachel’s mind, to live in extravagance while there are people in the world facing the worst kind of racial and ethnic injustice is not human and an escape from the reality of the madness that has taken over this world. Rachel Corrie saw in the Palestine problem an issue worth sacrificing everything for, because human suffering unleashed by other fellow men is not welcome in the kind of world that Rachel Corrie believes we should live in.And she was going to Cuba as soon as she was finished in Palestine.
Rachel Corrie believed in the universal brotherhood of mankind and that oppression against a people based on racial or ethnic myths is simply hogwash that is unbearable and un-Godly. Ms Corrie was protesting the destruction of the homes of innocent Palestinian civilians, so that the land could be cleared for Zionist settlements that aim to turn the Holy Land into an elegant suburbia with all the fancy materialistic polishing of modern “western” civilization – with the audacity of making the rest of the world believe that this is God’s will. All God fearing men and women know that God is far above than to let himself be the champion of a monstrous injustice that has been defiant of all Devine [sic] and man-made laws. Rachel Corrie was insistent on a different kind of justice. Her justice says that human beings should never be forcibly deprived of homes they and generations of their ancestors have been living in since any history has ever been written. Her God and the God of all decent peace loving people throughout the world say such oppression must be ceased and punished because it means brutality, theft, terror and injustice in all their manifestations.Pancake is truth, truth pancake,—that is all / Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know. And call your mother once in a while. Update: Greetings from the French Hill posts some statements from the actual bulldozer.
Yes, Rachel Corrie could never be forgotten, even if the New York Theater Workshop cows down to Zionist lobby demands that the theatrical masterpiece work promoted by Vanessa Redgrave and produced by the Royal Court Theatre, “My Name is Rachel Corrie”, should be postponed indefinitely from showing in New York. This is how America rewards a true heroine of its own, who gave her life to an American Caterpillar tractor provided by the US Government to one of the most oppressive regimes of all times. Why? Because Rachel Corrie really represented what America should have been all about and the ruling establishment in the US simply could not stomach such idealism.
This is what Robert Fisk of the Independent (UK) had to say about Rachel: “An American heroine, Rachel earned no brownie points from the Bush administration which bangs on about courage and freedom from oppression every few minutes. Rachel’s was the wrong sort of courage and she was defending the freedom of the wrong people.”
No, Rachel we will never forget you and will continue the fight where you left off with everything at our disposal, including our lives if necessary.
May she rest in peace and may her relatives find justice against the murderous perpetrators who insisted that freedom and human rights are out of context in their chauvinistic plans and designs for the New World, as they see it.
