Speaking minutes after the Haifa District Court absolved the state of responsibility in the death of American activist Rachel Corrie, an attorney representing the Corrie family in the case said the court endorsed the violation of Rachel's human rights, speaking outside the courtroom Tuesday morning.

The court's decision, Attorney Hussein Abu Hussein noted that the verdict was so close to the state's position that state attorneys could have authored it themselves.

Corrie was protesting injustice in Gaza when she was run over and killed by an IDF bulldozer, the attorney said, accusing the state and IDF of violating her human rights.
