A Palestinian boy holds a candle in front of a poster of Rachel Corrie, a pro-Palestinian activist who was killed by an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza in 2003, during a rally in solidarity with Rachael Corrie, in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip, Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012. An Israeli court on Monday rejected a lawsuit brought against the military by the parents of a U.S. activist crushed to death by an army bulldozer during a 2003 demonstration, ruling the army was not at fault for her death. The bulldozer driver has said he didn’t see 23-year-old Rachel Corrie, who was trying to block the vehicle’s path during a demonstration in the Gaza Strip against the military’s demolition of Palestinian homes. The military deemed her March 2003 death to be accidental, but Corrie’s parents were not satisfied by the army investigation and filed a civil lawsuit two years later.
