Court clears Israeli army over death of U.S. activist

An Israeli court on Tuesday cleared Israel's military of any blame for the death of American activist Rachel Corrie, who was crushed by an army bulldozer during a pro-Palestinian demonstration in Gaza.

Corrie, from Olympia, Washington, had joined a small group of international activists trying to stop the Israeli army from demolishing houses in the southern Gaza town of Rafah during the height of a Palestinian uprising.

Her friends said she was wearing a bright orange vest at the time of the incident and was standing on a mound of earth, but had lost her footing as the bulldozer advanced. The driver said he had not seen her and did not hear the cries to stop.

Corrie's mother, Cindy, denounced the verdict and accused the court of looking to shield the military from justice.

"I believe that this was a bad day not only for our family but a bad day for human rights, for humanity, the rule of law and also for the country of Israel," she told reporters.

TVNL Comment: As yourself what the media response would be if this happened in an Arab nation. Did you even hear about this when it happened? An American killed by a US made bulldozer driven by the military of a foreign nation...and not a peep by the press. How is that for fair and balanced reporting?
