Craig Corrie, father of murdered activist Rachel Corrie, discusses the Israeli court’s rejection of his family’s lawsuit because Gaza was a “war zone” where anything goes; Israel’s responsibility to protect civilians in occupied territory; the British civilians killed around the same time by the same shoot-to-kill IDF policy; and why Rachel put herself between an armored bulldozer and a Palestinian house in Gaza.

Antiwar Radio: Craig and Cindy Corrie

Craig and Cindy Corrie, parents of peace activist Rachel Corrie who was killed by an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza in 2003, discuss Rachel’s enthusiastic work on behalf of Palestinian victims of occupation, witnessing firsthand the destructive effects of Operation “Cast Lead,” how Israeli checkpoints fracture communities and prevent a functional Palestinian society, why Israel shouldn’t be trusted to conduct a real investigation of its own crimes and how Rachel’s legacy continues through (among other things) the Rachel Corrie Foundation and the stage play “My Name is Rachel Corrie.”
