There is in fact substantial evidence that the International Solidarity Movement and/or its Palestinian handlers set up Rachel Corrie to be killed so they could make propaganda.
# ISM director George Rishmawi, ISM member Joseph Smith, and a Hamas terrorist state openly a motive for wanting Rachel to be killed.
- http://www.standwithus.com/news_post.asp?NPI=85 “Recently, the Director of the Solidarity Movement, George Rishmawi, explained to the San Francisco Chronicle that the recruitment of American student volunteers is useful to the Palestinian Movement because “if some of these foreign volunteers get shot or even killed, then the international media will sit up and take notice.”
- Joseph Smith, who was present when Corrie died and whose highest priority was apparently to take pictures, said, “”The spirit that she died for is worth a life. This idea of resistance, this spirit of resisting this brutal occupying force, is worth anything. And many, many, many Palestinians give their lives for it all the time. So the life of one international, I feel, is more than worth the spirit of resisting oppression.”
- A Hamas terrorist said openly that Rachel was worth more dead than alive. “‘Her death serves me more than it served her,’ said one activist at a Hamas funeral yesterday. ‘…Her death will bring more attention than the other 2,000 martyrs.'” Making of a Martyr by Sandra Jordan, Guardian Newspapers
When you are more useful to your friends dead than you are alive, it is time to find new friends.
