Ironically the shooting of Anderson occurred nearly six years to the day that Rachel Corrie was murdered by Israelis (March 16, 2003). Corrie was run over by a bulldozer as she tried to prevent the destruction of a pharmacist's house in Rafah on the Gaza Strip. The Bush Administration and Congress betrayed the Corrie family, accepting the feeble Israeli excuse that it was an accident despite the testimony of several eyewitnesses. A Congressional resolution expressing sympathy with the family and calling for a independent investigation never got more than 73 sponsors and died in committee. Rachel has become an icon of the human rights movement with songs and a play written about her and her own skillful writings collected and published. Because of public pressure from the states she was not treated totally like a Palestinian whose killings receive the barest of attention. Her death merited a perfunctory "investigation" and a concluding whitewash.

it is the time he can answer the question which a half of the world is asking. will he or not support blinly the Isreal as Bush has.
I did not wrote anywhere that Obama is responsible for that tragedy. but if your opinion is that it is only Mr. Anderson's problem for trying to make our world a better place, than I have no words on this.
outside of your house there are criminals and you know it. but you are leaving home, aren't you? would you blame them for stealing your wallet or you will blame yourself?
