US BACKING FOR ISRAELI WAR CRIMES

Pictures of ex US marine Kenneth O'Keefe who was attacked by the Israelis on board the Gaza Flotilla.

On 5 June 2010, James Petras*, at voltairenet.org/en, tells us how the Pentagon secretly backs Israeli War Crimes: From the U.S. Liberty to the Humanitarian Flotilla

On 8 June 1967, Israeli warplanes bombed, napalmed and machine-gunned the US ship, USS Liberty.

Unfortunately for the Pentagon and the Israelis, there were survivors.

President Johnson ordered Mediterranean-based warplanes NOT to assist the survivors.

On 31 May 2010, Israeli warships, helicopter gun ships and commandos assaulted a convoy of humanitarian ships carrying ten thousand tons of aid to Gaza in international waters.

Rahm Emmanuel, top US Presidential aide, was in Tel Aviv as a guest of top officials of the Israel Defense Force a few days before the Israelis launched the assault.

It is often dangerous to ignore history, you forget it, it repeats you...

Ta for the picture of Kenneth O'Keefe. Al Jazeera just anounced that the Israhelli's acuse him of being a "Tewowist".

Good o' you to link up to the photos of him arriving in Istambul. Heard he'd got into a bit of aggro with the israeli authorities at the airport. Wanted him to clean up a bit before he boarded, or big image problem. Refused. Got beat up again. Big mess.

I wouldn't. This man won't give up.
