Oh, and here is a statement on today’s verdict from Independent Jewish Voices (thanks to Sid Shniad):
“IJV-Canada, along with thousands of social justice supporters all over the world, stand with the Corrie family. Israel’s whitewash of Rachel Corrie’s death signals that it will continue to be ‘business as usual’ on the part of Israel in its military occupation of Gaza and the West Bank,” says Judy Haiven, spokeswoman for IJV-Canada, speaking from Halifax.
“Israel’s illegal and brutal occupation of Palestinian lands continues in this its 45th year. IJV-Canada sympathises with the Corries and pledges to continue to fight for Palestinian human rights and an end to the Occupation,” Haiven concluded.
Independent Jewish Voices-Canada is a Canadian human rights organization whose mandate is to promote the just resolution to the conflict in Israel and Palestine through the application of international law and respect for human rights for all parties.
