The lawyer for Corrie family on "Palestinian" Authority TV said that Nazi Germany's founding was legal but Israel's founding was theft. And the State Department will continue to provide support for Rachel Corrie's family
Why should the State department continue to support a subversive Jew hater on a terrorist supporting mission who inadvertently (through sheer stupidity) got herself killed?
Lawyer Abu Hussein: "Nazi Germany was a state based on the rule of law for a short while... the State of Israel was founded from the start on robbery and theft"

Yesterday, an Israeli court ruled that Rachel Corrie's death was a "regrettable accident," but that Rachel Corrie "chose to put herself in danger." Rachel Corrie was killed when she was run over by an Israeli army bulldozer in Gaza, at a time when Israel was working to curb terrorist activity in the area. Corrie's family sued Israel for "wrongful death."The family's Israeli Muslim lawyer, Hussein Abu Hussein, said in a statement to the press: It's a black day for activists of human rights and people who believe in values of dignity. We believe this decision is a bad decision for all of us - civilians first of all, and peace activists." [NY Times, August 28, 2012]
Palestinian Media Watch is releasing a statement made by the Corrie lawyer last month that shows his attitudes towards Israel in general.
In a Palestinian Authority TV interview, Abu Hussein said Israel's founding was worse than the founding of Nazi Germany because "Nazi Germany was a state based on the rule of law for a short while," whereas "the State of Israel was founded from the start on robbery and theft." He also called Israel a "giant monster" and indicated that people should take action against Israel: "We all want to step on its head, but talking is not enough. Everyone has their role."

Asked about the Israeli court ruling against the family of Rachel Corrie, the American who was killed in 2003 in Gaza, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Tuesday: "First of all, we reiterate our condolences to the Corrie family on the tragic death of their daughter, Rachel. As you know, we've worked with the family all through this process, and we will continue to provide consular support. We understand the family's disappointment with the outcome of the trial. Under Israeli law, the family has the right to appeal the verdict, and we've seen reports that they are considering doing that. So we will see how this proceeds going forward."
