    Lets say for a moment the bulldozer driver intentionally killed her which I doubt but assuming he did he couldn't kill her if Rachel Corrie had not CHOSEN to put herself in danger. This was a closed military zone so she knew it was a dangerous place to be and she also intentionally put herself between the bulldozer and the house that was going to be demolished. Civilian construction sites are closed off because there is alot of dangerous equipment and other ways to get yourself killed if your not careful in a war zone its especially so. It is very easy to pin the blame on the bulldozer driver but Saint Rachel desereves her share of the blame because she should have know she was putting herself into a dangerous situation so at the very least she should take 50% of the blame. Protest is fine as long as its safe protesting stupid dangerous ISM should also be condemned because they encourage people to carry out dangerous stunts like this. They take people who are emotionally confused and would like to protest in some way and ISM encourages radicalises them and encourages them to do stupid things.
