Protest Defamatory Article Against Rachel Corrie
Action Alert – Protest Defamatory Article Against Rachel Corrie
Write to Israeli Insider and Israel National News
Some of you may have already read the defamatory article written by Bruce Ticker and published on May 30, 2004 on the website of Israel Insider and Israel National News about Rachel Corrie and the International Solidarity Movement. This article is ridden with inaccuracies and false assumptions, and misrepresents the ISM's nonviolent action against the occupation in Palestine.
Despite the ISM sent a letter to Israel National News asking for the right to respond to this article that libels both Rachel Corrie and the whole movement, the editor did not get back to us so far.
Please take a few minutes to write to both of these magazines and to the author, expressing your disappointment with such poor standards of journalism. Ask that they give the ISM the opportunity to respond to this article. If you have not yet read the article, you can do so at:
