No the man was never charged he claimed he never saw her. Witnesses claim she was run over more than once.

Rarely does an Israeli get convicted for murder when they kill someone who isn't Jewish or from Israel. And if you listen to some of their leaders it's no wonder why.

It is still manslaughter though...
Darn it I try not to hate but when stuff like this happens I start to feel it creep in.

Wish I could do something but what do I do?

Rachel Carrie is the perfect example of the Darwin Theory. You do something stupid, you die. You take yourself out of the gene pool. She stood in front of a military bulldozer during a military operation thinking her presence alone was enough to stop it. What was the bulldozer doing? Knocking down a house that sheltered a tunnel by which explosives were delivered to Israel which were then used to blow up school busses full of children.

There is justice in the world. Rachel Carrie is dead.

You seem to forget it was an illegal military operation. And there is no justice the scum that killed her is still breathing.

Justice? For what, exactly? She was an American protestor on foreign soil, obstructing an Israeli military operation by creating her own one-person roadblock with an 80-ton piece of armored equipment being operated by a Russian immigrant worker.

Looking beyond the politics of the situation, you do not play peekaboo with heavy equipment. I don't care how much florescent orange you're wearing or how big a loudspeaker you've got, when you're running around and blocking a piece of moving steel that weighs more than 20 elephants, has a blind spot in the front longer than the machine is, and is louder than the front row of a rock concert something bad is bound to happen. That's why you don't see construction workers kneeling in a bulldozers path.

The largest 'dozer I've operated is a D7, which is a runt compared to the D9, and even then the D7 had such a blind spot infront of the blade that it is entirely conceivable to me the possibility of accidentally running someone down and not even knowing it. And that's not even taking into account the further reduced visibility through armored glass and shutters, the lack of watchers, flagmen and reliable onsite communication, and having someone deliberately get infront of you rather than get away when you're moving.

All these supporters trying to make her a martyr because she was naive enough to play chicken with a D9. I didn't buy it then, and I still don't buy it ten years from now.

She was a peaceful protester. Do you really think she deserved to die. Do you want to live in a world where you are killed for expressing your opinion in a peaceful manor.

Yep, few steps right or left and shed be alive today. If she had stood in front of a train people would say 'Dang, that was stupid".

What happens when an unstoppable force meets a soft, squishy peace protester? The predictable.

I won't say that she deserved her fate, that's a line of thinking that's foreign to me. She was naive, foolhardy, and more than a little bit arrogant in thinking that she could play Tienanmen with a 'dozer, but she was also a good, decent human being with the balls to stand up for what she thought was right.

I don't necessarily agree with the cause, but I applaud her convictions, even if they cost her her life. She died a world away from her home, and for what? Some stranger's house?

Yet again you guys show your hand....what, 53 flags with only 1 page on comments....but hell, I will bite anyway.

She was naive and foolish for not getting out of the way. But she did have courage, she stood up for what she believed and paid the price for it. Perhaps some of the people in this thread that hate Israel should do what Rachel did - go over there and protest.

All these guys saying she was being stupid or naive amaze me. I mean really.. if this was happening to washing DC there would be an Outcry. People all over the world would be effected emotionally. However since Israel basically owns America through AIPAC, it all gets shoved under the rug. You people that call her naive need the hand of god. Apparently God has forsaken you , because you have no sense of what is right and what is wrong. You are defending a group of people that have no God and only worship money. But then again, most of the people in America worship money just as much.

When I say Hand of God, I mean you need to be touched by him. Not harmed but shown the light so that you may come to your senses.

Because anybody who isn't a rabid Palestine supporter is either a) a Jew (who all worship only money), or b) an American (who are all owned by the Jews). I am neither. You don't do your position any favours by making such broad generalizations.
