There are young Americans who do not know the difference between terrorism and self-defense, between an ideology based on savagery and one based on Judeo-Christian principles of humanity.
For those callow Americans, I offer the following definition of stupidity that may one day save their lives. Had Rachel Corrie known the full meaning of the word, she might have been alive today.
The cartoon is from University of Maryland Diamondback Newspaper which got some heat back in 2003 when they published the cartoon:
Seattle PI, Students protest cartoon of Rachel Corrie
COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- A sit-in continued for a second day yesterday over a college newspaper cartoon describing the actions of the Olympia peace activist killed by an Israeli bulldozer as the definition of stupidity.
The cartoon depicts a woman sitting in front of a bulldozer with the dictionary definition of the word "stupidity" listed below, along with an additional definition: "3. Sitting in front of a bulldozer to protect a gang of terrorists."
More than 60 students gathered for a sit-in Wednesday after the cartoon appeared in The Diamondback, the student newspaper at the University of Maryland-College Park.
