    for anyone to say Rachel supported terror tells me they have a gross misunderstanding of what she was doing in Gaza as well as what Israel was doing in Gaza. I hope folks will Google Rachel Corrie Myths & Facts on the Rachel's Words website. The family whose home Rachel was defending from demolition when she was crushed to death had never been suspected or accused of terrorism. The 3,500 or so homes razed in Rafah were not razed for military necessity, as documented by Human Rts Watch in its "Razing Rafah" report. That means those demolitions were war crimes. The essence of Judaism, said the historic Hillel, is not doing to others anything you'd yourself find abhorrent. Who in Israel, America or anywhere in the world would want their home and all their belongings and sometimes a family member crushed by a bulldozer? Israel has demolished more than 24,000 Palestinian homes since 1967. And an offer for peace has been on the table since 2002 - The Arab League, or Saudi proposal -- ratified by every Arab nation and the majority if not all non-Arab Muslim nations...and agreed to by Hamas. So where's the impasse to peace? Looks like it's in Israel's p-i-e-c-e plan.
