Irony Lost (reprint)

International Solidarity Movement member Rachel Corrie was flattened by an Israeli bulldozer several years ago. To commemorate this, friends are invited to a Pancake Breakfast at Denny's.

You can't make this sort of thing up.

Comments on the post are priceless:
Honestly, someone squashed flatter than a pancake is memorialized by a breakfast of... huh?

The Palestinians are a people with far less claim to historical legitimacy than the Klingons. Idiots like Rachel Corrie are like geeks who go to summer camp to learn to speak Klingon, but wind up playing with live phaser guns. Note the Klingons were created by TV scriptwriters 1966-67 as the alien nemesis to the Starship Enterprise, a full TV season before scriptwriters at the Kremlin invented the equally fictitious "Palestinians" right after the 1967 Israeli victory.
Others lack a sense of humour:
Regardless of the politics, I would find a Pancake Breakfast to be rather insulting given the way that she died, more over, a pancake breakfast is way way way too cheary to the solomness of the event.

Why not have a Chapeign and Orange Juice breakfast to commemorate the horrors of the Holocaust?
Uh, becuase the Jews weren't turned into Champagne and Orange juice?

The comments also led me to this very interesting page which suggests the ISM were complicit in her death and asks some very hard questions. It also makes the simple point that "When you are more useful to your friends dead than alive, it is time to find new friends-- quickly." Too true! Read it all.

Update: Comments on the Indymedia page suggest I am part of the Grand Conspiracy
This is a hoax, straight out fo COINTELPRO
by heard it before

Lovers of Islam Unite! - Pancakes for Mohammed, peace be upon Her

Keep your calendars open for Sunday, March 18th, at 11 AM for the first annual Pancakes for Mohammed, peace be upon Her, Sunday Pancake Fundraiser at Dennys. This is a great way to raise money for our Islam saving cause while eating great pancakes. And remember, “Hold the sausage please!”

For those of us who are trying to convince our Muslim brothers and sisters about the true gender of the Prophet, peace be upon Her, come out and speak up and bring a few shekels to donate. Also, be sure and bring your best drawing of the Prophet, peace be upon Her. I propose that each group vote on the best depiction of the Prophet, peace be upon Her and pay for the winning artist to eat for free.

Now remember, drawing the Prophet with a bomb on Her head has already been done, so please, choose something else.

My favourite bit:

Just wondering-- will Corrie's memorial stone cairn be lifted into place by a Catepillar? At least the stone won't know it's supposed to get out of the way of a slow-moving bulldozer, and won't be used to plug a hole full of terrorist weapons smuggled in by Corrie's fellow Nazis and other comrade scum.
 
Remembering Rachel Corrie - A Supporter of Terrorism

Three years ago Thursday, Rachel Corrie was accidentally killed by an Israeli bulldozer after she entered a closed Israeli military zone to protect Palestinian homes that were sitting on top of tunnels used by Palestinian terrorists to smuggle illegal weapons to be used against Israeli civilians. Rachel Corrie was a member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISD), a firm supporter of Palestinian terrorism (what the ISD calls “resistance”), “by any means necessary.”

There has been a lot of heated debated about the New York Theater Workshop’s recentpostponement of the play, My Name Is Rachel Corrie.Some folks have suggested that the theatre caved intoIsrael supporters. Other, more paranoid types, have suggested that the infamous “Israel Lobby” had something to do with the postponement.

The photogrpahs on the right show Rachel Corrie burning an American flag to show her support of Palestinians and choosing to lay in front of an Israeli Bulldozer in the hopes of protecting tunnels used by Palestinian terrorists to smuggle illegal weapons.

One of the reasons that the Israeli army closed the area that was being bulldozed was because Palestinian snipers often shoot at bulldozer crews. This endagers not only Israelis, but "peace activists" as well. Palestinian terrorism insures that Israeli bulldozers have very litlte visibility because of the need to protect the driver with metal shielding. Ms. Corrie chose to lay down in front of a bulldozer. Her act was not one of peace, but of suicide. Clearly Ms. Corrie spent too much time in the company of suicide killers and their supporters.

Perhaps the New York Theater Workshop simply realized that they did not want to be associated with Rachel Corrie because Ms. Corrie supported terrorism and allowed herself, either knowingly or unknowingly, to protect Palestinian terrorists. Perhaps the theatre company did not want to be associated with Ms. Corrie because she was eager to publicly burn American flags. Or perhaps the theater simply did not want to be associated with the left’s obsession with supporting anti-Semitism.
