Thread Name: BS: Emergency, Quakers on Mudcat
Subject: RE: BS: Emergency, Quakers on Mudcat
Lorcan:

I don't believe that Rachel Corrie was a Quaker, nor was she acting on behalf of peace. She died in a tragic accident that she had a great part in precipitating.

Comparing Rachel Corrie to Mr. Fox is a grave disservice to Mr. Fox and the cause of truth, and trying to gain 'traction' with some vicious terrorists by picking on the Israelis is contemptible.

Having said that, by and large I have found the Society of Friends to have a tradition of faith and courage that few other committed groups can compare with, whether I agree with them on a particular issue or not.
