It is publicity the Israelis did not want. They have long been accused of white-washing investigations into the deaths of foreign activists.
 
But now the family of a young American woman is forcing the State of Israel to defend itself in court.
 
Rachel Corrie was crushed to death beneath an Israeli army bulldozer seven years ago, as she tried to stop it demolishing a Palestinian home. 
 
Will the truth about what happened to Rachel Corrie finally be told? And will there be justice for her at last?

Inside Story presenter Shiulie Ghosh is joined by Huwaida Arraf, one of the founders of the International Solidarity Movement, Dan Izerman, the legal affairs correspondent at the Jerusalem Post, and Ian Black, the Middle East editor at the British Newspaper The Guardian.

This episode of Inside Story airs from Thursday, March 11, 2010 at 1730GMT and 2230GMT, with repeats on Friday at 0530GMT and 1030GMT.
