America's favorite terrorist enbler-turned-pancake is back in the news today as her parents lost yet another lawsuit that they've filed against the Israeli government.
Israel court rules it was not at fault in 2003 death of U.S. activist killed by army bulldozer
Heck, they've sued anybody and everybody, including Caterpillar, the US manufacturer of the bulldozer that their idiot kid threw herself under nearly ten years ago while trying to dissuade it's operator from knocking down a house used by terrorists in Gaza back in 2003.
Fore those not familiar, Rachel was a spoiled liberal kid from Washington State who, along with her parents and liberal college, thought that it would be great to go to Israel for a year and mess with their attempts to stop Palestinian terrorists from firing guns and rockets at Israeli citizens. (Mom and Dad gave her the money to go and the school was giving her some sort of "study credit") So she invited herself into the war zone along with a couple dozen other "useful idiots" and began trying to annoy the Israeli Army when not joining her new friends in denunciations of President Bush or burning American flags in rallies.
It all came to an end one day when she donned a bright-colored jacket, grabbed a megaphone, and began running in front of a military bulldozer, trying to keep it from demolishing some houses that the terrorists had been using to snipe at Israelis from.
Despite being chased away and even tear-gassed several times, she kept it up until finally she managed to get in under the armored bulldozer operator's field of view and she got skooshed.
Ever since then, her parents have been blaming everyone but her (and themselves) and filing lawsuit after lawsuit, all of which have been dismissed. Today marks yet another vindication for common sense and the rule of law as the Israeli court in Haifa turned them away and rejected their demand for one dollar...and hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorney's fees and travel costs associated with their judicial jihad.
Tough break, Corries. But next time, try to raise a smarter kid (one that understands concepts like "Mass+Velocity = world of pain if it hits you"), or work a little harder on steering it away from foreign countries where it has no place being in the first place. Was Rachel just too much of a special snowflake to volunteer at a local hospital, school or shelter? I mean, it's not that I don't like to write about her from time to time, but damn, what do you expect is going to happen when you send a naive girl into a combat zone with just a red jacket and a megaphone?
