Subject: Poem for Rachel Corrie : From the Center for the Advanced Study of American Institutions and Social Movements, Grenoble, France.
 

15 May 2003
Grenoble, France

Dear Colleagues and Freinds,

The Center for the Advanced Study of American Institutions and Social
Movements received this deeply moving poem from our research associate
Professor Jean Derioz, Universite Stendhal. (Please see item A. below.)

We share his grief and deep concern over the murder of the young American
pacifist, Rachel Corrie by the Israeli military. And we join Derioz, the
family of Rachel Corrie, and millions of other concerned citizens in
calling for an invistigation into this murder, identifying all
collaborators and attempts to cover up this grotesque crime against humanity.

Following the moment in this poem, we invite readers to visit the web sites
below that give an update on the ciminal activities of the
American-supported Israeli government. (Please see item B. below.)
 

Sincerely,
Francis McCollum Feeley
Professor of American Studies
Director of Research

A Prayer for Rachel Corrie: Killed in Palestine while trying to stop home
destructions by the Israeli Army
  by Jean Derioz

Let him huff, let him puff
Let him raze our homes
To dust let him grind
Our bones

Let him plough the streets
And bulldoze the flesh
Leaving no stone on stone
Unchecked

In the wake of his share
The seed will be sown
Never mind whose field

We will fire the clay
We will hammer the steel
Never mind whose creed

The wake that you keep
The grave that we share
Lamb of the barren hope

May it be the promise
Rachel
That we be whole
