If you weren't sure the Rachel Corrie (Saint Pancake) trial was nothing more than another propaganda attack on the legitimacy of Israel's right to self-defense against terrorism and its supporters, then Corrie's parents made it utterly clear with their latest antics (which I'll get to at the end of the post).
