Extract from an email to her mother, February 28 2003.
"I think I could see a Palestinian state or a democratic
Israeli-Palestinian state within my lifetime. I think freedom for
Palestine could be an incredible source of hope to people struggling all
over the world. I think it could also be an incredible inspiration to
Arab people in the Middle East, who are struggling under undemocratic
regimes which the US supports."
years ago today, Rachel Corrie was murdered by the Israeli Defence
Forces (IDF) in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza. Her killer(s)
have never been brought to justice. Another atrocity by the Israeli
occupation forces in Palestine.
