Rachel Corrie petition

For Americans only, petition for our administration. I understand that online petitions are somewhat dodgy, but I'm not sure there's any harm in an electronic signature to this one in case it can do some good.

I'm not sure why I care so much about this, but I still feel physically ill and near the point of tears on this story. Perhaps I have related to her on some level. But moreover, it shows so vividly the problems that have been plaguing that area for so long, problems which have been coming up for decades (more UN decrees than any other country type of problems); because if they could so nonchalantly kill her, they've been nonchalantly killing so many people who don't have the conveniences of Western cameras about to prove their plight.

I still can't read her final emails.
