NGO Monitor, which critiques various anti-Israel NGOs, said that the court had affirmed that Corrie had put herself in harm’s way while acting on behalf of the ISM.

“The verdict reflects all of the facts and circumstances surrounding this incident, without the slogans and distortions,” said the statement.

In fact, “Corrie’s death was entirely unnecessary, and the leaders of the ISM bear much culpability for her death,” said Prof. Gerald Steinberg, president of NGO Monitor.

NGO Monitor also quoted ISM co-founders Adam Shapiro and Huwaida Arraf as stating in 2002 that, “The Palestinian resistance must take on a variety of characteristics, both non-violent and violent…Yes, people will get killed and injured,” but these deaths are “no less noble than carrying out a suicide operation.”
