No Glory for Corrie

Call it the Karine C: The Israeli Defense Forces have seized another boat carrying weapons intended for Palestinian Arab terrorists. The New York Times reports Israeli officials believe the boat, which carried Hezbollah "explosives expert" Hamad Abu Amar, was bound for Egypt. "From there, Mr. Abu Amar could have tried to infiltrate the Gaza Strip through one of the tunnels the Palestinians have dug under the border, to smuggle weapons and other contraband from Egypt into southern Gaza."

As we noted in March, Rachel Corrie, a 23-year-old terror advocate from Olympia, Wash., was trying to protect such tunnels when she caused her own death in an unsuccessful attempt to obstruct an Israeli bulldozer. Corrie's outfit, the International Solidarity Movement, is seeking new recruits: "We particularly invite Jewish people to join the movement," says an announcement on the Palestine Monitor Web site. "Already, about 25% of our activists come from Jewish backgrounds. It is much more easy for Jewish people to enter Israel and more embarrassing for the Israeli government to deport Jews, making our Jewish contingent extremely valuable to the movement." Jews for genocide?
