Love not Hate

One of my favourite images — it reminds me of Rachel Corrie
who, ten years ago today, was killed by the Israeli military.

Armed only with her bright red fluro jacket and a big heart,
Rachel was attempting to prevent Israel’s destruction of
Palestinian homes in the Occupied Territory.

The Israelis, in a move that typifies their brutal war on humanity,
simply crushed her body beneath the tracks of their bulldozers.
