Larry Everest is great. He really studied this situation deeply, and I have been really impressed by his books. They're really wonderful, and provided me a clearity and insight I didn't have before, and in a scientific way.

The War on Terror is just an Orwellian catch-all for whatever war they want to unleash, whatever rights they want to steal and a license for total impunity for the ruling classes.

If anyone doesn't understand why the Democrats march in step, it's because the State is showing.

This system is the problem and it can't be reasoned with.

Palestinians Humiliate Themselves

Remembering Rachel Corrie - A Supporter of Terrorism

Three years ago Thursday, Rachel Corrie was accidentally killed by an Israeli bulldozer after she entered a closed Israeli military zone to protect Palestinian homes that were sitting on top of tunnels used by Palestinian terrorists to smuggle illegal weapons to be used against Israeli civilians. Rachel Corrie was a member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISD), a firm supporter of Palestinian terrorism (what the ISD calls “resistance”), “by any means necessary.”

There has been a lot of heated debated about the New York Theater Workshop’s recent postponement of the play, My Name Is Rachel Corrie.Some folks have suggested that the theatre caved intoIsrael supporters. Other, more paranoid types, have suggested that the infamous “Israel Lobby” had something to do with the postponement.

The photogrpahs on the right show Rachel Corrie burning an American flag to show her support of Palestinians and choosing to lay in front of an Israeli Bulldozer in the hopes of protecting tunnels used by Palestinian terrorists to smuggle illegal weapons.

One of the reasons that the Israeli army closed the area that was being bulldozed was because Palestinian snipers often shoot at bulldozer crews. This endagers not only Israelis, but "peace activists" as well. Palestinian terrorism insures that Israeli bulldozers have very litlte visibility because of the need to protect the driver with metal shielding. Ms. Corrie chose to lay down in front of a bulldozer. Her act was not one of peace, but of suicide. Clearly Ms. Corrie spent too much time in the company of suicide killers and their supporters.

Perhaps the New York Theater Workshop simply realized that they did not want to be associated with Rachel Corrie because Ms. Corrie supported terrorism and allowed herself, either knowingly or unknowingly, to protect Palestinian terrorists. Perhaps the theatre company did not want to be associated with Ms. Corrie because she was eager to publicly burn American flags. Or perhaps the theater simply did not want to be associated with the left’s obsession with supporting anti-Semitism.

Gee, what did the Israeli people ever do to deserve such contempt for them by those dirty Palestinian terrorists? I suggest we Americans put together some money to aid them a bit. What do you think?

Now that I've let the basic Zionist narrative get posted, that's about it. We respect the righteous here with all the love we have for life.

Rachel Corrie lives.

The psychic killers who agitate for ethnic cleansing and denying even a pretence of justice won't be engaging here. Please see the Rules of the Road if you have any confusion about what the comments here are for and the prescribed range of discussion.

No room for haters in this corner of the blogosphere.

burningman, I just wanted to verify with you that you in fact know that I was being overtly provocative to try to prove a point. I do see how that can be seen as petty, but I thought it should be said. Feel free to edit/delete. I'll read those rules, too.

In solidarity,

These things have a way of backfiring. Like any typical American, I was brought up to believe that the Israelis were the good guys and the Palestinians subhuman bestial terrorists.

But the hate campaign around the death of Rachel Corrie by the extreme right on the internet revealed a whole seamy underside to the pro-Israel lobby I'd never been aware of.

It's one thing to see Hillary Clinton or John Edwards defend the pro-Israeli point of view. These people are slick and know how to moderate their language.

But one thread on LGF about "St. Pancake" can reverse all of it. Dig into the internet hate campaign against Rachel Corrie by the pro-Israeli lobby and you're bound to see all sorts of simularities between them and white supremicists in general. Their war dance over her body reminds me of the way the female "race traitors" are punished in the "Turner Diaries".

They're their own worst enemy.

Of course this is also off topic and doesn't really address Larry Everest's article.

Quite frankly it seems so obvious I'm confused how people on the democratic left can continue to support people like John Kerry or the Democratic party in general, who argue that the only thing wrong with the "war on terror" is that Bush is incompetent in prosecuting it.

I'm actually more interested at the reasons for the obvious blindness, the ability of people not to see the obvious.

The US government supported the Islamists in Afghanistan against the Soviets. Everybody knows this. And yet it was magically excised from the debate over the "war on terror".

We supported Saddam against the Iranians in the 1980s. Once again, outside of activist circles, it's simply dropped out of the debate.

We propped up the Shah in Iran's monstrous regime and the demands of the Iranians to be able to try him in Iran were utterly reasonable.

And yet nobody discusses the trials of Milosovic or Saddam in this context.
