Rachel Corrie Died for This?

Rachel_corrieJournalists were barred as Hamas demolished 30-40 homes in Rafah, but AP filed this eye-opening dispatch:

Hamas police wielding clubs beat and pushed residents out of dozens of homes in the southern Gaza town of Rafah on Sunday before knocking the buildings down with bulldozers, residents said.

Gaza's militant Hamas rulers said the homes were built illegally on government land. Newly homeless residents were furious over Palestinians on bulldozers razing Palestinian homes.

For years, Palestinians have criticized Israel for destroying houses, mostly because they were built without permits issued by the military. Now, Rafah residents complained, their own government, run by the Islamic militant Hamas that seized power in Gaza in July 2007, has done the same.

Rafah residents expect more home demolitions. Is this what Rachel Corrie died for?

I don't hear the supposedly "pro-Palestinian" Israel haters whining about this, I wonder why that is?
