Jane Horwitz's article on "My Name Is Rachel Corrie" could have been an example of reporting on the best aspects of the play [" 'Corrie' Fears Unrealized; Controversial Play Opens Without Incident in W.Va.," Style, July 18]. Instead she gave space to the likes of Stanley Marinoff, who spouted off that Corrie was "a human shield for an organization that's probably a terrorist [front] organization."
That statement is not only inaccurate, it borders on slandering the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), which has twice been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Even the courts in Israel have stated that the ISM is not a terrorist organization.
Corrie was not a "naive young lady" but a passionate advocate for justice for a people who have been forced to live under occupation, brutalized and ignored by the world.
