She might not have thought that she was helping Hamas and other elements by trying to obstruct IDF operations at the Philadelphi Route but that's what she was doing.
As for your opinion regarding my experience... well all I have to say in that regard is that the Gaza Strip is one the biggest sh*tholes I have had the misfortune to visit, especially the area around Rafah and can only feel sorry for you that you had to live there.
As for Corrie, she was trying to stop the army from uncovering areas used by terrorist groups in order to fire at the IDF at the Philadelphi route and was a member of an organization that directly or indirectly, aided terrorist groups.
While I certainly don't think that she deserved to die, she was the only one responsible for her death and I won't lose any sleep over it.
2. By her very actions, she was abating terrorist by obstructing the IDF efforts to find and destroy weapon smuggling tunnels.
3. I had no idea you sat in court when the judge read his ruling, good for you.
When Judge Gershon is describing a combat situation faced by the IDF, who do you think he is referencing by implication? Martians?The state, he continued, was not responsible for any "damages caused" due to the combat situation but nonetheless called Corrie's death a "regrettable accident."
I'm glad the report touched on the operator visibility issue. I'm thinking the dozer in question is at least a D8 size. From experience (a lot), the forward vision from the operator's seat is basically top edge on the outside of the blade. She could have been on stilts in front of center of blade and been as visible to operator as if she had stayed home in Washington. The engine cowling, air intake and exhaust are huge on those machines and block all view. Somewhere I have a shot from inside a D11, which is larger, but has similar vision parameters.
So wait, let me get this straight.
You're an American that occasionally visits the Gaza strip, and somehow you have a deep analysis and knowledge (more than IDF veterans on this board apparently) about how Hamas operates. Being native to Gaza (your words, not mine) and visiting there for few weeks is not exactly the same thing.
There are quite a few holes in your story, amigo.
