Rachel Corrie's parents endure brush with Gaza kidnappers

Thursday, January 05, 2006 |    

Two Palestinians opted not to kidnap American couple Craig and Cindy Corrie in Gaza when they learned that the couple’s daughter Rachel was killed in 2003 as she tried to stop an Israeli bulldozer from razing the home of Samir Nasrallah. Nasrallah, who was hosting the Corries in his home, said that the two men, one of whom had a gun, knocked on his door Wednesday morning and asked if he had internationals in his home. “I said, 'yes,' but that this is the father and mother of Rachel Corrie," he said. Craig Corrie said "There was never a threat made against us and the gun was never pointed at anyone." Craig said it was also important for him and his wife to visit Nasrallah, whose family they have become close to. They left Rafah following the morning's visit.
