Those who are familiar with this blogger’s ‘About’ tab know about the “interest” in the ISM.
In a nutshell, they are the most dangerous/insidious international terror front group at large; they work directly with Palestinian terrorists (and other Islamic organs); all the while they pose as a non-violent “aid” group.
And herein, those who wish to play deaf, dumb and blind find an (im)moral escape hatch.
Nevertheless – what may not be clear – this American-Israeli entered the “Islamic fray” through her investigative work with Lee Kaplan, arguably the world’s expert on the hydra-linked ISM. Therefore, whatever shakes out of their terror tree is of immediate import.
As a short recap – the following are building blocks, which basically describes Lee Kaplan’s hunt of ISM shock troops.
Firstly, take note of ‘Time To Take Direct Aim…Stop Pussyfooting Around…Investigative Journalist Lee Kaplan Takes No Prisoners’, and be sure to click on the links…. paying particular attention to the embedded ‘israelseen.com’, it takes direct aim at the case at hand.
Then, onward to - ’Northeast Intelligence Network Digs Deeper: Do You Know Who Your Neightbors Are?’ …followed by, ‘Red Alert Issued Via Lee Kaplan’
Back to today’s blaring headline.
As stated, in the above linked commentaries, if it were not for Lee Kaplan’s anti-terror tracking of ISM terrorists, it is hardly likely that the evidence amassed at the Rachel Corrie trial would have entered the light of day.
Moreover, the Haifa court’s reliance on his expert testimony attests to the above.
So it is with great relief, as well as pleasure, that this blogger brings forth some good news – for a change of pace!
“Haifa Court Rules Against Rachel Corrie’ -
Judge Gershon invokes “combatant activities” exception, says US activist who was killed by IDF bulldozer in Gaza could have avoided dangerous situation; Corrie attorney accuses court of endorsing human rights violation.
“The Haifa District Court on Tuesday ruled against the family of Rachel Corrie, the American pro-Palestinian activist struck and killed by a bulldozer in Gaza.
In the verdict, Judge Oded Gershon invoked the principle of the combatant activities exception, noting that IDF forces had been attacked in the same area Corrie was killed just hours earlier.
Corrie, 23, from Olympia, Washington, died in Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, on March 16, 2003, when an IDF bulldozer struck her during a protest by pro-Palestinian group the International Solidarity Movement.
Reading a summary of his 62-page decision, the judge described Israel’s investigation into the incident as appropriate and said it had no mistakes.
Asserting that Corrie could have avoided danger, he dismissed claims that the IDF was negligent in the incident and denied the family’s suit for symbolic damages. The IDF did not violate Corrie’s right to life, he continued, asserting that she inserted herself into a dangerous situation.
The state, he continued, was not responsible for any “damages caused” due to the combat situation but nonetheless called Corrie’s death a “regrettable accident.”
“I am hurt,” Corrie’s mother, Cindy, told reporters after the verdict was read.
Speaking outside the courtroom minutes after the verdict was released, an attorney representing the Corrie family in the case said the court endorsed the violation of Rachel’s human rights,.
The court’s decision, Attorney Hussein Abu Hussein noted that the verdict was so close to the state’s position that state attorneys could have authored it themselves.
Corrie was protesting injustice in Gaza when she was run over and killed by an IDF bulldozer, the attorney said, accusing the state and IDF of violating her human rights.
Corrie’s family filed the civil suit against the Defense Ministry in the district court seven years ago. They claim that the IDF either deliberately killed Corrie or is at least guilty of gross negligence.
Senior US officials criticised the original military investigation into the case, saying it had been neither thorough nor credible. But the judge said the inquiry had been appropriate and pinned no blame on the army.
Immediately after the trial ended in July, Corrie’s family alleged that important evidence, including several surveillance tapes from the time Corrie died, were withheld as part of a coverup over the circumstances of her death.
Among the evidence the family claims has been withheld from the civil suit are surveillance tapes that show color footage of events before and after Corrie’s death.
The color footage was used in a Channel 2 documentary, but the IDF has denied that the color footage exists, the family claims.
IDF officials did submit as evidence a black and white surveillance video with footage from immediately before and after Corrie’s death.
The family also claims there are discrepancies between a photograph of the bulldozer that they say killed Corrie taken by International Solidarity Movement activists, and a bulldozer shown on footage presented by the IDF.”
Most mendaciously, the Corrie family, as well as her leftist, terror sympathizing supporters, are loathe to admit that Rachel – a “terror wannabe” – DIRECTLY consorted with stone, cold Jew-killers!
Yes, she did. The evidence is very clear on this.
And despite the Corrie’s outrage at the verdict against their daughter, these Jew-hating bastards still haven’t a clue.
Israeli courts gain immense prestige/satisfaction ( via kudos from their leftist supporters at home and abroad ) by socking it to the troops, as well as patriotic Jews.
The point being, Israel’s justice system is irredeemably leftist and bent toward the Arabs and their causes. Having investigated this issue far too many times, witnessing many outrages in the process, this is indisputable.
The Corries – and their reflexive, anti-Israel back benchers – would do well to read the following ( out of too many others to cite )- if they dare.
‘Justice In The Holyland : Is It Ideologically Driven?’ was featured at The Jewish Press. Its disgraceful conclusions speak volumes.
‘Is Justice Ideologically Blind In Israel – Or Not? You Decide’ seals the deal. It expounds on how the courts consort with leftist/Arabist plaintiffs/defendants, to the detriment of Jewish nationalists and soldiers, as well as obviating their democratic “due process”.
Being deeply enmeshed with the issue of Jewish justice in Israel, it is important to note that those who defend its borders – the IDF – are often thrown to the wolves as rapidly/viciously as are nationalist civilians. Most significantly, these civilians are law abiding citizens, who have the legal and democratic right to protest when their homes/lives are threatened.
The courts/prosecutors couldn’t care less.They are just obstacles/impediments in their “conceptzia” – a new and “improved” Israeli, mirrored after their leftist, social engineering pipe dreams.
Thus, IF there had been a scintilla of evidence to rule in favor of the Corrie’s the court would have done so. Knowing much about this issue – and it is considerable – the judges and the majority of lawyers are shedding tears over this “miscarriage of justice”, being forced to rule against Rachel Corrie.
Such is life in the leftist, crazy house of Israel’s justice system!
But visualizing their extreme collective heartburn soothes an aching Zionist heart.
Ask this blogger if she cares.
Besides, their daughter….the terrorists….and all their supporters warrant the same fate!
