On March 16, 2003, in the uninterrupted tide of Middle Eastern current affairs and just before the war in Iraq, a small tragic event was reported, just a few lines in the newspaper and a 45 second report on television: A young American peace activist was crushed by an Israeli bulldozer in the Gaza Strip. Despite many eyewitnesses' claims that she was intentionally murdered by the bulldozer driver a few weeks later, some media reports mentioned that the Israeli military police conducted an inquiry, concluding that Rachel Corrie's death was accidental.
