Just endured twenty minutes of Sukant ranting down the phone at me - something about an American girl dying in Palestine. Does anyone have details, since I couldn't get much coherence out of him?

Her name was Rachel Corrie, she was 23, she was a student acting as a human shield to keep people from bulldozing some houses and they ran her over.

My stepfather wrote 'Remember Rachel Corrie' on his beetle to remind people about her.

The whole thing just really sucks.

The houses had an infrastructure of tunnels running underneath them for weapons trafficking. Not exactly a random targeting.

Rachel Corrie was actually not "intentionally run down" -- this has been propagated by Reuters, who were unclear in labelling their sequence of photos. Plus the IDF has consistently acknowledged and apologized for the tragedy, something I seem to fail to see Palestinians doing when they blow up busloads of innocent civilians.
