Rachel Corrie - In Memoriam

On March 30, 2010,  a vessel weighing 1800-tan was bought through an auction in Dundalk, Ireland, at the price of 70,000 British pound sterling by the Free Gaza Movement. After some works done to restore the condition and equipped for long journey, she was ready for her trip to Gaza, Palestine. In June 2010, she sailed to Gaza despite the inhuman and bloody attack by the Zionists on the lead vessel, Mavi Marmara weeks before that. The vessel was forced to turn around by the animal Zionists, after they ransacked the ship and seized valuable goods meant as aids for the Palestinians. It never reached Gaza.

They named her 'Rachel Corrie'

Who is 'Rachel Corrie'?

Rachel Aliene Corrie (April 1979 - March 16, 2003) was an American citizen and a member of International Solidarity Movement (ISM). She was brutally murdered by the Israeli regime in one of her attempt to prevent the Zionist bulldozer from demolishing Samir Nasrallah's house in the Province of Gaza. The Jews, who are known best in the world for their inhuman behaviour, denied the report saying that she died of accident, but there was evidence that she was run over by the bulldozer not once but twice and the witnesses of the murder have managed to prove that she was killed intentionally.

Prior to that, Corrie took a one year leave from her study at the Evergreen State College to join other activists of the 2nd Intifada' to Palestine. On the unfortunate day, she stood firm as human shield when the bulldozer ran over her.

Corrie died due severe injury of crushed chest, ribs, dorsal spinal column and scapula. She also bled massively at her right lung.

These pictures here showed the details of her murder. Undeniably true. But some people in some part of the world couldn't see the truth. Why? Because such ill fated scene did not occur to any of their family members, so they don't care?

Obviously the Israelis did not care to look at the skin colour or background details or which country she came from when they killed her. And when Corrie was sent home all covered up with the US flag, the brilliant president of the US still support and protect (perhaps lick also???) the Zionists' ass.

What has she done to deserve this? What can the family and relatives and friends do for her? Put up her enlarged pictures for everyone to view and light up thousands of candles every day will not bring her back or do her justice.

In Islam, Al Qur'an has, from the beginning, reminded us that the world that we live in is known as paradise for the sinners. As for those who do good deeds, the world is a place where they will be repeatedly tested. Hardships, tortures, poverty, illness are some of the many tests, to name a few. For those who are tested and they endure with it patiently, continue to repent and seek help only from Allah and say Alhamdulillah with no regret at all the time, then a beautiful Jannah (paradise) awaits them in the hereafter. They will live in it happily forever.

Dear beautiful Rachel,
I pray that Allah wholely forgive you and save your soul from the burning hell fire. May He look at you with love and tenderness. May He place you together with other Muslimins and Muslimahs who are blessed.
You were my hero. And always is. I hope I have the same courage as yours to fight for justice and peace in this world.
May your soul rest in peace. Amin.


  1. Ameen to your dua.

    This is so sad :(

  2. It is sad indeed, dear sis. I wish I could do something to help our muslim sisters and brothers in Palestine.
