Al Jazeera’s 45 minute-long documentary on the seizure of the ships and boats of the Gaza flotilla concentrates on events aboard the MV Mavi Marmara. This is because most of Al Jazeera’s team was on the small cruise ship, and footage smuggled out by member of Cultures of Resistance came from that vessel. In the documentary there is evidence of war crimes by the IDF.

Here’s an idea:
The MV Rachel Corrie should plan on reaching the exact point at which the USS Liberty was attacked by the Israeli Navy on June 8th 1967, on June 8th 2010.
They should ask for permission to lay wreaths and garlands from the families of those killed at that site 43 years ago.

Apparently, the Civil Suit in Haifa District Court, regarding the circumstances of American College student Rachel Corrie’s death in Rafah on March 16th, 2003, took that same day off, so that Corrie’s parent could travel to Ramallah for the dedication of a street named after their daughter. But the trial resumed Wednesday.

Some of the best parts of Katherine Viner’s 2003 play, My Name is Rachel Corrie, have to do with how this vibrant 11-year-old spent the first half of the second half of her short life. In the play, the actress acts out a kid growing into adolescence and young adulthood. The scenes are based on diaries and correspondence Rachel’s parents shared with the playwright. Watching the monodrama, one can sense, through the diaries being declaimed, a powerful, rich, resonant feminist voice beginning to emerge.

Again, we can thank the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice for directly covering the ongoing civil trial in Israel, into her death six years and 364 days ago.

As there is scant coverage of day two of the civil trial over the death of Rachel Corrie in Gaza, I’m stuck with quoting the press release from the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice.

Nobody who is aware of the history of U.S. media coverage of the death, on March 16, 2003, of American college student and peace activist, Rachel Corrie, on the eve of the beginning of our Iraq invasion, is surprised at the scant and somewhat biased coverage the early phase of the civil trial in Israel, that seeks to compensate the Corrie estate for wrongful death.
