Please introduce a resolution similar to HCR 111, which calls for the U.S. to launch an investigation into the death of Rachel Corrie, age 23, an American who was crushed to death by an IDF bulldozer as she tried to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home in Rafah, in the Gaza strip on March 16, 2003.
I also ask you to investigate attacks by Israeli soldiers and settlers on other Americans: Suraida Saleh, a 21-year-old American citizen, was killed by IDF gunfire in Ramallah, on March 29, 2002; Brian Avery, 24, was shot in the face by the IDF in Jenin on April 5, 2003, and survived. Israeli soldiers firing rubber-coated steel bullets shot and wounded five International Solidarity Movement peace activists, including American Greta Berlin, in July 2003. Masked Israeli settlers attacked Christian Peacemaker Team members Kim Lamberty, 44, and Chris Brown, 39, with chains and bats as the Americans accompanied children from Tuba near Hebron to school in the West Bank on Sept. 29 of this year.
Please investigate these attacks on Americans.

Israeli settlers attacked and badly injured San Francisco resident Chris Brown and Washington, DC resident Kim Lamberty, the daughter of an Omaha, NE judge, as they accompanied children to school Sept. 29 past an illegal outpost near Hebron in the West Bank. Chris and Kim are volunteers with the Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT), which provide nonviolent intercession in areas of violence. Five male settlers dressed in black and wearing black masks, and wielding chains and bats, beat them and kicked them with steel-toed boots, and stole Kim’s passport, money and cellphone. The children Chris and Kim were protecting on their walk past the Jewish settlement escaped unharmed.
