We are looking at sending at least one bus from the UK to Gaza, loaded with materials to set up the Samouni Family Community Centre/Classroom. We would like to do this in the next couple of weeks so we need many things to happen very fast if we are to meet such a deadline. Keep in mind that there are about 112 Samouni kids, two years on from Operation Cast Lead with hardly any support in so many regards, so the sooner we make a difference the better. For 112 kids the requested items that follow are pretty modest; we will look to expand the facilities for sure, with a full educational complex planned, but the goal at this moment is ambitious yet realistic, it really is up to all of us. I am hoping everyone who reads this will give something, big or small. Now is the time to have a functioning classroom and community centre ASAP for this family. We have met with the family and consulted them at length, what they want, including the children, is a real learning facility where the kids can get back to where they were before Operation Cast Lead. We have the teachers ready to go here in Gaza, teachers the kids love, we just need to get the classroom up and running.
Yesterday we managed to arrange an Internet connection for the classroom; this took some bargaining I can tell you as the Samouni’s are not in the urban part of Gaza. We are building the official Samouni Project website right now, we have some great people on this; the site is going to be outstanding. The website will have photos and videos of the family, the children are keen to begin writing blogs (with automatic translations from Arabic to English), and there will eventually be a forum where the family can interact with people from around the world. This is one of my primary goals, to connect people outside of Gaza with the family, to create an extended Samouni family.
Items/Materials/Support sought immediately;
1) A UK based coordinator to facilitate this project, this is a volunteer job.
2) A mechanic or someone very good with vehicles that can travel to Retford, Nottinghamshire, in order to make sure the vehicle is sound and as purchased.
3) We need the vehicle MOT’d and taxed by hopefully the same person above.
4) Costs covered to put vinyl graphics on the bus, such as the Samouni Project logo as well as the logos of our sponsors.
5) Costs for food, fuel, tax, MOT, and insurance for the drive to Gaza.
6) Sponsors; we seek sponsors from unions, organizations, Mosques, community and Palestine Solidarity groups. We propose a minimum donation of £100 to become a sponsor, but anything will help so we encourage everyone no matter what you can contribute.
7) We will need at least two or three drivers who will have to sleep in or just outside the bus in order to ensure security.
8) More Vehicles: if we can get a couple more vehicles, possibly even a bus that can carry the whole family in Gaza, which would be great. There are good deals on vehicles and maybe people will have a vehicle or two that they would like to donate to the family, a work van would be ideal, but any working vehicle will be extremely valuable to the family.
9) Computers: Ideally we will bring 12 desktop computers, mouse, keyboard, computer speakers and if possible, 12 laptop computers so each household will also have something in their home.
10) Office Chairs – 12 is perfect.
11) Webcams with Microphone Headsets for Skype calling.
12) Laser Jet Printer/Copy/Fax/Scanner with refill ink cartridges.
13) Laminating Machine with lamination sheets.
14) Digital Cameras, the more the better, all the kids love cameras.
15) LCD Projector and screen.
16) Small generator, big enough to power a small home.
17) A nice Globe for teaching.
18) Large World Map for wall.
19) Quality books with emphasis on education, history, science, etc. English is great, but if people have Arabic language books as well, that will be fantastic.
20) We hope to bring 50 English teaching books which we already have a teacher to teach with, here is the link to the book we need; http://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Headway-Beginner-Students-English/dp/0194376311/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1301319517&sr=8-1-fkmr1
21) We are looking for a carpenter to build Custom Bookcase and deliver to London very soon.
22) If a carpenter can work right away, we can give dimensions and precut some material for long desktops to be used for the computers and classroom.
23) Lighting, good quality lighting, LED’s lighting would be ideal so the electricity consumption is low. But we want something other than fluorescent lights, something warm and nice to read and learn with.
24) Musical instruments, if you have an instrument that you can give for these children to experiment with and play; this will be a beautiful contribution. Does somebody have a Piano?
25) Office supplies, paper, paper clips, notebooks, pens, pencils (coloured as well), markers, pencil sharpener, etc.
26) Arts & Crafts of all sorts.
27) Puppets and educational toys.
28) A telescope, this has been asked for, would be great.
29) Tiles to lay on the floor, this is roughly a 10×15 metre space.
Items that would be good to bring now as well;
3) Kids football shoes.
4) Anything of value that might be useful.
If you have or are willing to purchase any of these items then please do so and email me at email@example.com (please put ‘Samouni Project’ in the subject field). If you can provide a service, volunteer to drive to Gaza or be a coordinator then again, please email me.
The following are not likely to be arranged immediately, but maybe, you never know. But even if we cannot get these things now, I would like people to know of our longer-term goals and start looking around for ways to make this happen as well.
Supporting Independence for the family; long-term items sought;
1) We would bring a machine that can process Tomatoes into sauce. The Samouni family are farmers and if they had an industrial machine of this type they would be able to really get back on their feet and be independent soon. I will get more details of the exact type of machine that would be ideal tomorrow, if you think you can help with this then message me please.
2) A loom, an industrial loom that would allow the family to make Kuffiyeh’s, if we do this I am sure the family will have a real income with exported Kuffiyeh’s, made in Gaza, with the Samouni Family brand on it.
3) Building materials to make a small factory/warehouse.
And last, something that would just be wonderful for the entire family, especially the boys;
1) 1) The materials to build a 5 on 5 football pitch, the cement for the foundation, the padding and artificial grass, the walls, goals, bleachers, lighting for night time play.
I am already planning to make a video with the kids inviting FC Barcelona to come out this summer and do a football camp. I am making it clear to the kids that there are no guarantees, but if we try, we have a good chance of getting a result.
I would like to say to everyone reading this just one thing. If we really care, we will make this next phase happen and we will do so within a couple of weeks. We can do anything we set our minds to and what is asked for to make this project happen is completely doable. We all have something to offer, the question is what do you have to offer?
To my Muslim and Arab brothers and sisters, the Samouni’s are your direct family; please make this project happen now. As a community, you alone could make this happen within a week.
Love and respect to everyone who is helping with this, you are blessing yourself big time by contributing, believe me I know this all too well.

Letter from Joe Fallisi;
Dear Ken, my friend, my brother. We met last time at Shawa Theatre in Gaza, before my third concert there, two months ago. You know how much I love the cause of a free (and happy) Palestine and how just in the Strip of Martyrs I have my best friends, even my true family. Till the last breath of my life I’ll go on in this fight for truth and justice. You know also how much I admired you not only for your behavior during our common adventure, last year, on the Freedom Flotilla, but also, and even more, for how, then, you were able to defend the truth about what really happened during the murderer assault by Zionist predators – I remember, for instance, your great interview for the BBC. Just because of that, and even because some years ago you had the wonderful idea to organize from London the human shields to go to Iraq and try to help the people there to avoid the horrible destruction of their country by Western intruders, I ask you to be brave again and to say openly, even now, some words of truth. What all international criminals of “ONU” and “Arab” (more than shameful) “League” are planning against the free, independent Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya is a crime beyond any words. Even worse of what the Angloamerica did against Iraq. All the “reports” of totally drugged media, spread all over the world, were, are SPECTRAL, radically FAKE. There is NO reason, absolutely, but the previously decided purpose to swallow an entire country backing it again to the colonial age (by a REAL mass murder and destruction and eternal radioactive plague, just as they did in the unfortunate Iraq, or in Afghanistan…and before in the former Yugoslavia), to make any “humanitarian” no-fly zone on the sky of sovereign Libya, that means, of course, to invade then and to occupy the last independent Arab country, their obvious aim since the beginning of all this plot. “Rebels” from Benghazi are corrupted traitors and ultrareactionary monarchists linked to the foreign exploiters who tried, on behalf of them, to make a coup against the most laical, not racist and prosperous country, since 40 years, of Africa. Gheddafi is a very sweet koala compared to monsters and tyrants like Obama, Cameron, Sarkozy, Netaniahu. And Libyan people will resist to this incredible, indecent bullying wished by the “international” politically correct “community” (of vampires). Please DON’T STAY SILENT. We must live our few years on this earth with dignity. Better to be alone than in a very bad company.
I hug you my brother.
FREE LIBYA, FREE PALESTINE!
DOWN TO IMPERIALISTS, DOWN TO ZIONISTS!
Make no mistake Joe, I am so buried with several projects that I just cannot keep up, otherwise I would have already made this clear.
Regarding Libya, I am once again struck by the gullibility of people who buy into a no fly zone or any level of Western intervention being a good thing for the people of Libya and indeed our world. The Western powers, especially the ones leading the charge, the US, Britain and France, are colonial/imperial powers who have always, always raped and pillaged the lands they have entered. And yes, they do intend to enter Libya. If we are so stupid as to buy into the idea that these nations simply want to help the people of Libya, then I say we remain the most stupid species to ever walk the Earth.
Where was the no fly zone during Operation Cast Lead? A completely defenceless population in Gaza was bombarded by the fourth largest military in the world, in which they were provided no means of escape, a population with more than 800,000 children, and Obama, Bush, the disgustingly treasonous US government never so much as uttered the words “no fly zone”; and now these same criminals care about Libyan’s!
As for the Arab League, what is the Arab League, it is a collection of corrupt puppets who mostly do the bidding of their Western paymasters. They also serve to give the appearance of some level of autonomy in the Arab world, but this is just a ruse. Sometimes they say some pretty words, just like their Western puppet brethren, but they are hollow and corrupt to the core. To support a no fly zone because the Arab League has asked for it is to be manipulated, it is just that simple.
For those who say we must act in order to save the lives of those in the crosshairs of Gaddafi, that was the same basic argument why we invaded Iraq as well. Saddam killing, torturing his people, “we must liberate”, what a joke. I say to those duped once again, lives may be spared in Libya in the short term, but be sure that the tyrants could care less about these people, it is the oil they covet and the no fly zone and attacks on Gaddafi are merely the prelude to the same old story of rape and pillage. In the end more will die if the West comes to “help” the people of Libya, 1.5 million liberated/murdered Iraqi’s are the most recent proof of what is really going on.
What the tyrants really fear is what I really hope for, a Libya completely free of Western influence and manipulation, a Libya with true Muslim leadership, honourable leadership that cannot be bought. Nationalized oil that benefits all the people in the form of first rate infrastructure, education, healthcare and so on. If the people of Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, etc., win their battles on their own terms, and we in the West extract our grubby hands from the booty, they will be just fine. In fact they will be free of the Western tyranny that has been at the heart of the injustice and suffering they have known ever since oil was found beneath their feet.
The definition of insanity is to keep repeating oneself and expecting a different result. Rather than insisting that we the White Horse of heroism from the West comes to the rescue, we should be insisting that we get our blood soaked hands off of everything outside our lands and start cleaning up our own house, which is, for those remaining blind, a bloody mess of corruption and inequity.
We in the West do not even take care of our own people, multi-billionaires and deep poverty side by side, house foreclosures in concert with trillions of dollars being handed to the banksters. These bastard banksters are the ultimate rape and pillage machine, and they are salivating over Libya.
On a brighter note, I am so happy and inspired to see the youth increasingly aware of these things, because we adults remain so completely uselessly duped on so many levels.
I hope that is clear enough Joe, I will not generally respond to outside demands for my time as I work hard enough as it is and I cannot do all that I wish, but I respect you and agree that it is right for me to be clear on this issue.
To even things out a bit, since the US taxpayer enjoys buying and supplying Israel with fighter jets used to murder the air defenceless population of Gaza, which happens to include 800,000 plus children, I suggest the US taxpayer also commence to shooting Israeli/American jets out of the sky over Palestine. Why not?

There is much talk about who and what is behind the popular revolts in the Arab world and I find such talk as interesting as anyone. But more than talk I am interested in action. Indeed that is why tears of joy streamed down my face as I watched the Egyptian people cleansing themselves of the shame brought upon them by Mubarak and his fellow thieves and traitors. Clearly however, the job is far from complete.
The Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions are not actually Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions as much as they are part of a Global Revolution. For no matter how much effort is exerted by the powers that be to divide the masses, we are all connected. And within the Western nations lie the very same justifications for revolution. The truth is we are hard pressed to find a government that honours its people; the real question is to what degree does a government disrespect and violate it’s people? And does it confine it’s crimes to it’s own population? Or does it export these crimes as well? I am obliged to mention that in this latter category the world champion of global oppression is of course, my birth nation, the United States of America.
And they have junior partners in the global tyranny business, and Egypt has been, and remains at this moment, one of them. Ever since the so-called peace treaty between Egypt and Israel, Egypt has become a key partner in America’s greatest export, terror. For more than 30 years Mubarak was little more than a pimp and a prostitute, ordering the people of Egypt to bend over while the American imperialist machine penetrated the Egyptian people as a rapist does his victim.
Meanwhile Mubarak mocked the people of Egypt, his henchmen (Omar Suleiman) tortured and terrorized them while he and his family plundered the nation and swallowed American bribe money by the billions; all the while the comatose American taxpayer paid this pimp and his family those billions.
For a little comic relief, listen to what you, the American taxpayer are being told about how you’re hard earned tax dollars go to work in Egypt;
“For over three decades, the United States has worked to improve the quality of life of all Egyptians through programs supporting economic development and regional stability. USAID assistance has totaled $28.6 billion since 1975. Current programs focus on economic growth; education; healthier, planned families; and democracy and governance.” – USAID website
And so, for the bargain basement price of $28.6 billion the American people managed to buy Egyptians a lifestyle of deep poverty in which 40% of the 80 million plus of them live on less than $2 a day. Way to go America!
I am curious to know how many reading this are like me; tell me, when you see Obama or Hillary Clinton dare to talk of Egyptian “democracy” and solidarity with “the people”, do you wish as well that someone would walk up, stare them square in their eyes and slap them with a thundering clap right in the face? I sure do. And I damn sure wish that famous and heroic Iraqi shoe thrower hit George Bush right in his mouth. One can dream.
Ah but we can do better than wish for things that will likely never happen, we can act, we can create our own reality; just as the Egyptians and Tunisians and many others are showing us right now. We can do anything we set our minds to, ANYTHING!
And that leads me to the people of Palestine. As I sit here in Gaza I can tell you that these people are as deserving of real support as any people on Earth. For decades our actions (or lack thereof) have translated to a brutal existence with perpetual trauma and violence. Despite this the people of Palestine have not become the monsters that imprison and slaughter them. They remain Palestinian; among the most generous and hospitable people you will ever meet. And so I say to the world, now is the time to begin acting as brothers and sisters and commence to the liberation of the people of Palestine.
To everybody who knows injustice, everybody who knows tyranny, we are all brothers and sisters with the people of Palestine. Let us act like it and let us march on Gaza on February 26th, 2011. Let us amass in the greatest numbers possible, and let us march week after week if necessary, to make Rafah Crossing and open border. To achieve this would be to render the Israeli/American lead blockade useless. That would signal another mortal blow to American Imperialism and Israeli Zionism. If that isn’t worth fighting for then I have no idea what is.
I realize this was not the primary objective of the peoples revolt in Egypt, but it can become a primary result of it. Why not? Is it not possible? Of course it is. Egyptians have just shed their puppet dictator; they rendered his weapons and henchmen impotent. We can now remove one of the most shameful policies of this dictator; I say again, we can do whatever we desire, if we are serious that is.
I am serious, and I know many more who are serious as well.
Let us take note, lower ranking Egyptian commanders disobeyed direct orders by Mubarak and his generals to murder the people in Tahrir Square. So the Army did not slaughter the people as ordered, so clearly there is honour within the Egyptian military. But it cannot be ignored, there are still higher-ranking officials who followed Mubarak’s orders and themselves ordered the lower ranks to commit mass-murder.
Let us remember that it is such people that were punished by death as a result of the Nuremberg Trials. And let us realize that for the moment such people still hold positions of power and influence in Egypt. And let us not be fools, they remain of course the servile minions of their Zionist and American imperialist masters. Let us not ignore the fact that the American bribe money is still flowing.
To rest, to allow them to corrupt the will of the people into a new dictatorship is to abandon our role in the Global Revolution.
As I have said, this is not an Egyptian/Tunisian Revolution, their battle is ours and vice versa, and it intertwines with Palestine directly.
I know this for sure; there is not one Egyptian in their right mind that would endorse a continuation of the Egypt under Mubarak blockade of Gaza. To the contrary, it has shamed the people of Egypt for far too long. Why not end it now?
Is there any sane, right-minded person who supports the blatant and brutal collective punishment of the people of Gaza? So why would it carry on? There is only one reason, because we allow it. I say we carry on with what the people of Egypt started, they got rid of the dictator, let us, people of conscience, once and for all smash to pieces the abominable Egyptian blockade of Gaza.
Let us commence to exposing anyone intent on subjecting the 800,000 plus children of Gaza to this cruel and inhuman blockade.
I say shame on us all if we do not march on Gaza with significant numbers and soon. I see no reason why sufficient numbers cannot be mobilized for February 26th. If our lives or the lives of our loved ones depended on it, we would mobilize by the thousands.
As I write this there are people in Gaza who will likely die soon if they cannot access medical treatment outside of Gaza. Among them is a 14 year-old boy who needs a kidney transplant, which his father is ready to provide. Shall this boy be left to die?
There are students being denied access to education abroad. There are building materials needed yet denied, and thus the rebuilding of Gaza remains impossible. All of this preventable suffering and death continues, day-by-day, a human caused catastrophe, due to the Egypt under Mubarak blockade of Gaza. But there is no Mubarak, so there is no excuse.
Having met children all over Gaza I can tell you that virtually every one of them has been and continues to be traumatized by the ongoing blockade and terrorism of Israel. All of this is compounded massively by the blockade. If this were your child you would not rest until there was justice. But if you see them as I do, you would see them as your children, and with that comes a duty. Let us not fail. We cannot do too much for the children of Gaza; to do less then everything within our power is the continuation of collectively dishonouring ourselves and degrading our humanity.
It seems at this stage in human development the only way to make sure that governments serve the people, is to ensure that they fear the people. If indeed that be the case, let them fear us. Let them feel the wrath of our will and let them know that the Egyptian blockade of Gaza is in its dying days. If this inevitability requires bloodshed then it will be because those entrusted to serve the people have instead chosen to serve the Israeli/American tyranny under which Mubarak ruled. If that be the case then there shall be an absolute need for Nuremberg Trials of today.
But I think none of that is necessary. I think the Egyptian Military can honour the people rather than the paymaster. We shall see.
Here is what I propose: People of conscience, supporters of Palestine and Egypt, wherever you come from, come to Egypt in the days leading up to February 26th. Travel to the port city of Al Arish and prepare to march on “The Day of Liberation” for the people of Palestine in Gaza. From the Egyptian side we shall march from Al Arish to Rafah Crossing (about 35 km/22 miles). On the Gazan side we shall demonstrate in support of this peoples liberation and we shall greet the marchers when they arrive.
Transportation via taxis can easily be arranged for those unable to walk such a distance. The goal will be to enter Gaza with the full cooperation of the Egyptian Military/officials. We seek no confrontation, but we demand the end of the Egypt under Mubarak blockade of Gaza.
If the marchers are blocked, attacked or arrested, we will do as the people of Egypt have done, a Tahrir style camp will be created as close to Rafah Crossing as possible. We will maximize exposure of the march via social media such as Twitter and Facebook and the world will surely be watching if we do what we are clearly capable of doing. People will camp out and more marchers will come, if we do as we are capable of doing our numbers will swell and our power increase. Each and every day will bring us closer to the end of the Egypt under Mubarak blockade of Gaza.

It is 5:30 pm here in Gaza and reports are coming in of 2 million in the streets in Cairo, over 2 million for their “1 Million March”. February 1 could still be the day that one brutal dictator flees the Middle East. But more important than one fleeing tyrant are the seeds that are being sown. If we nurture these Tunisian and Egyptian seed, identify the powers that be, hiding, conspiring, attempting to co-opt as they always do, we can end their game once and for all. Think about a world in which there are no secret negotiations like those revealed in the Palestine Papers. Think of a world in which “politicians” are replaced by representatives, real and genuine representatives, honouring the will of the people at all times. Why not?
We can achieve anything we set our minds to. We can expose the tyrants and their minions. We can end the scourge of endless war, especially the farcical “War on Terror.” Let us begin to acknowledge every institution and person who perpetuates this illusion for who they are, dupes and/or servants to tyranny. The former must be seen with understanding and support, they are brothers and sisters caught in the web but we can help free them. The latter on the other hand must be exposed and warned that there are consequences for such allegiance. People die and suffer in legions for their work, there must be consequences, and there must be responsibility. Ignorance of a crime and following “just following orders” is not a defence.
How many of us know the truth and can see through the propaganda? I do not know the number but is massive. And we are the ones that truly matter; we are the most powerful force on this planet. We have just been in a slumber. We are Muslims, we are Christians, we are Atheists, we are Communists, we are black and white, male and female, we are Chinese and Peruvian and Hawaiian, we are liberal and we are conservative, we are all people who know right from wrong and we are fully capable of agreeing to disagree on matters of lesser importance. What do we agree on? That is what matters most. Do we agree that people should be free to live life as they see fit, so long as we do not adversely affect others? Then we agree on a most important matter. Do we agree that human rights are inherent? If so then we agree on a most important matter. What we agree on is far more important than what we disagree on.
I have longed for the day that we can celebrate our differences, where we would shed the labels and the treatment of others based on whether they fit into “my” group. To all my Muslim brothers and sisters I say that I am not a Muslim, to all my Atheist friends that I am not an Atheist, nor am I any label that would ever satisfy me, but one thing is for sure, I am your brother. I will always be your brother, and I will treat you as I would treat my brother/sister… because we are indeed family.
As for my lost brothers and sisters who subscribe to “chosen one” ideologies, providing preferential treatment for themselves and often times grave injury to others, you are a threat to all people for the logical consequence of your power expanding is more injustice. Yours is a tribal ideological relic of the past, one that fits perfectly into the tyrants scheme, feeds into perpetual war, it divides and does so expressly for the empowerment of the few. That was yesterday; let us never forget. But today we are thinking differently, we are acting differently, and tomorrow we shall act as one.
For those of my brothers and sisters so indoctrinated that you cannot fathom what it is to treat others as you would yourself, you have been conned. You have been stripped of your humanity; you are a threat to the whole. What difference does it make whether it is Hitler or any other supremacist? Anybody who supports persecution or denial of rights based on values of supremacy is an enemy to the people. We can say this of all sorts of people, elitists, racists, religious extremists, no one group has a monopoly on such thinking, and each of you is essentially the same.
I do not believe myself much different from most people in that I am happy to share this world with all people, people of all religions, orientations, cultures, the only thing I require is respect and freedom for myself the rest of my human family.
I believe the time has come to unite, those of us who are sane, who can see that the masses are comprised of so many cultures and vastly different ways of life, yet we all demand essentially the same things. We demand to be treated with respect. We demand the right to a decent way of life. We demand to be free. We demand to be treated as a human being and afforded all the rights of a human being. How many of us are there? I don’t know but it is a huge number. We need only unite and we will expose and root out the tyrants and their servants quite quickly.
And to my Egyptian and Tunisian brothers and sisters, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
If there is one thing we must do in order to understand the way in which our world functions, it is to look at it through the eyes of pure evil and insanity. Looking at the world as a human with a conscience will only make things very confusing. You need to think like a tyrant, drunk on power, and totally insane. OK, get into that mode, let’s take a walk down the path if insanity.
On June 8, 1967, during the Six Day War in which the vast majority of Americans were rooting for our Israeli allies to kick the shit out of the Arabs, American traitors and Israeli psychopaths conspired and committed an act of mass-murder, as yet unpunished. I am talking about the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in which 34 American sons were murdered.
On a clear sunny day in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Gaza, the American naval ship Liberty was carrying out its work as a spy ship. Its job was to listen in on the ongoing slaughter of the Arabs and all the chatter going on around it. On that morning a friend of mine, Phil Tourney, was on the Liberty and was one of the 300 or so crewmembers onboard. I am not going to get into details here because this article is an actually an attempt to expose a very possible future treachery. I use the Liberty incident purely as an example. But I would be remiss if I did not recommend Phil’s book, every red blooded American patriot should read it… and learn; “What I saw that day.”
On that fateful day Phil and many other crewmembers watched as low flying Israeli jet fighters flew overhead, and he himself actually waved to the pilots. Let there never be any doubt, the Israeli military was fully informed of the presence of the Liberty and Israeli pilots verified the ships presence by sight, America’s flag waving proudly in the Mediterranean breeze.
Not much later, that calm sunny day erupted into bloody hell. It started with coordinated air attack with explosions that took out all of the Liberty’s communications. Unmarked jets began pummeling the ship with bombs, including napalm bombs targeting crewmembers who were attempting to repair the lost communication antennas in order to make a call for distress. Nobody on the Liberty knew what was happening, but slaughter with unidentified culprits ensued.
The unmarked jets hammered the Liberty mercilessly, and then came the torpedo boats. And since these were marked, everyone now knew who the attacker was, America was under attack by America’s best friend and ally, Israel. These torpedo boats fired several torpedoes and the captain miraculously avoided all but one. That torpedo was only inches away from breaching the boiler room and blowing the ship to Kingdom Come, sinking the ship and killing everyone onboard. But God and/or the universe had other plans that day.
The torpedo blew a 22×39 foot hole in the ship, it listed badly to one side and while the blood was spilling, the ship was on the verge of sinking. Life rafts were launched and the order to abandon ship was nearing. But that option was nixed when the torpedo boat operators blew the life rafts out of the water as soon as they were launched. These same demons fired 50 caliber machine gun rounds directly into the hull of the ship in the area of the boiler room. It was clear, the intention was to hit the boiler and sink the ship, along with every last crewmember onboard.
Since you probably never heard much about the Liberty, you surely do not know about US Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara ordering the recall of the fighter jets coming to the aid of the Liberty (after communications were patched up and a distress call was made). But know now, the American leadership then and know is rife with traitors. Eventually the torpedo boats left, thousand of rounds, rockets, torpedoes and napalm had turned the once proud Liberty into a burning hulk.
And then came the helicopters, just like the ones I saw on the Mavi Marmara when the Israeli’s carried out their most recent act of piracy and mass-murder. In 1967 it appears that last minute orders came to recall the Israeli commandos, who almost certainly were preparing to fast rope down, plant explosives, sink the ship.
Act of God, that is a very good way to explain how the Liberty stayed afloat, because had the plan been carried out as intended, the ship would have been sunk and 300 American sons would have been dead. Nobody was meant to survive and share what they saw that day, nobody. Why? Because the attack on the Liberty was a classic false flag attack, just like 9-11, and the plans involved yet another manipulated entrance into war. Yet again American sons and daughters were to be used as canon fodder in a Grand Chessboard game for lunatics.
Make no mistake, the Liberty was meant to be sunk and with everyone dead, and the plan was to blame Egypt. America would have then invaded and occupied Egypt in 1967… were it not for a torpedo missing its mark by no more than 1 foot.
Before you let sanity take over, remember, you are a tyrant drunk on power, you are a psychopath, and you want war! But that bastard ship did not sink, there were witnesses, and the planned invasion and possible nuclear attack on Cairo was averted. Yes I said nuclear attack; that day two Phantom jets were launched from the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean, when it appeared the Liberty was sinking, only because it did not sink were those jets recalled. And those jets were nuclear armed… and flying to Cairo.
This is the world we lived in then, it is the one we live in now, false flag attacks are the method of choice for the powers that be, and they are the ultimate tool of manipulation, until that is we finally realize who is the number one culprit behind these attacks; our own governments. In particular the United States and Israel, although they are by no means the only state sponsors of terrorism, there are dominant forces in it.
The Liberty attack brought us very close indeed to a nuclear attack on Egypt, and very possibly a nuclear exchange with the then Soviet Union (Egypt’s primary backer at that time). We have come close to this self-induced Armageddon many times, and we will continue to tempt fate with self-destruction, unless of course we realize the truth, we have allowed our world to be run by psychopaths, and they have their fingers on the buttons of the nukes.
And so that brings me to the point of this article. It is a time sensitive article, one that deserves some serious immediate attention. I have sources who I trust, and although I cannot say for sure that what is written next is true, we better damn well be aware of the possibility. That is why I am sharing this. Indeed information is power, and if the plan below is true, we would do well to avert it, and for that to happen we must be aware of it. The words italicized below come straight from the sources.
REPORT FROM INTELLIGENCE SOURCES
While millions of Egyptians are in the streets, in one of the most dramatic spontaneous uprisings in recent years, in an attempt to overthrow 30 years of Mubarak rule, a regime propped up by Israel and the United States, an undercurrent of opportunist plots threaten to turn this hopeful situation into an epic disaster.
A cadre within the governments of Egypt, Israel and the United States, is seeking to exploit these events and expand Israel’s influence to the Nile and into Africa, this cadre is behind Egypt’s new Vice President, Omar Suleiman, Israel’s “man in Cairo.”
Suleiman, the current power in Egypt as Mubarak crumbles away, has been a longtime ally of Israel. Reports from intelligence sources in Europe and North Africa, sources with a good track record, tell of Israeli mobilization and troop movements toward the border of the Sinai.
Sources indicate that Suleiman is looking for an Israeli move into Sinai, a “preemptive security deployment” to justify a crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood, a group already targeted over the last 4 days.
Reports indicate that Suleiman has pulled all police and army out of the Sinai, just hours ago. This has left the Rafah crossing into Gaza open, something that would never be allowed unless as a pretext for a security crackdown, perhaps tied to a convenient incident which can be blamed on Hamas.
The long term objective of US, Israeli and Egyptian aims, plans hatched over the past 72 hours, is to use the current unrest to split Egypt, followed by a destabilization based on the Tunisian model, of Northern Sudan.
(Southern Sudan is currently under defacto US control.)
The next scheduled targets are: Uganda, Somalia, Eritrea and Kenya.
Suleiman has, however, inadvertently overstepped the prerogative of other military leaders and has already been targeted for elimination.
Factions opposing Suleiman are currently being armed across Sinai and a staged defense is being planned with fallback position all the way to the Suez Canal.
Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is said to be consulting with the Palestinian Authority to coordinate all information reaching the media regarding Israeli troop movements.
This is the information I have been given but I only I know one thing for sure regarding current events, there are powerful forces who will do anything to see this revolution works to their advantage. And yet we can make their plans a miserable failure and secure real gains for the people of Egypt and beyond. Mubarak must go and he will, but let us not be manipulated anymore. I have just seen reports that Hamas has now moved into Egypt and is working with the Muslim Brotherhood; that is all is needed for the Israeli pretext to invade the Sanai.
Our world is run by psychopaths, beware of this fact and be prepared for the next attempt at manipulation. If Israel launches a “pre-emptive” offensive into Egypt, if any elements within Egypt play into that hand, we know what the real game is. It would be ideal to avoid this scenario and if we are armed with the truth we have a better chance of avoiding it. But let us be damn sure these bastards fall flat on their face if they take this path; let us make sure the sacrifice and strength of the rebelling people in Tunisia and Egypt is a massive victory for humanity and nothing else.
‘Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world…’
I have for many years lived with the knowledge that we, the masses, the working class, the poor, the white, the black, the brown, the immigrants, the Christians, the Muslims, the atheists, the soldiers/ex-soldiers, the peaceniks, the communists, the anarchists, the students, the people, across the spectrum, we all have a common cause. And yet, we have so tragically allowed ourselves to be duped, to be pitted against each other, fighting each other, finding a million ways to divide ourselves, or simply to be indifferent to each other. In this the tyrant’s smile, they laugh and they joke, about how complete their control over us is. They have been laughing for far too long.
I know how this happens, growing up in my white middle-class Californian life; I was a mindless idiot like most, I had no idea that we in the West were living on the back of the blood sweat and tears of countless people around the globe. I was clueless about our reaping the benefits of the plunder of the world. I too was living in that bubble of indifference, a bubble that is finally bursting. I wonder if the billions who have suffered for our indifference can forgive us? I wonder if we will be honest about our criminal complacency which has resulted in an unfathomable amount of suffering and death?
Ah but alas, the American empire is crumbling, it is rotting from within, like every single empire before it. And how poetic that its accelerated demise was ignited by the rage and desperation of one Mohamed Bouazizi, one of the countless victims meant to be just another statistic; no no, this statistic just kicked off a global revolution.
Think about it, if a street vendor can do that, imagine the power of the people united, intelligent, fearless and indomitable.
And the people of the world are beginning to realize that all the bribe money, all the weapons, all the sleazy tyrants and their minions are nothing, they are spineless fleeing cowards, running away as cowards do. Let them run to the grotesquely corrupt hosts who will receive them, their day is coming soon as well. Soon there will be nowhere to hide, no gold for them to steal, no court to shield them and no stolen land to live on.
Moving forward with this revolution I am sure many such scoundrels will come home to America, the most corrupt land of them all, by virtue of the seeds of corruption it has sowed across the globe… America, possessor of the most disgusting, servile, traitorous government of them all, will soon play host to all its servile tin pot dictators.
America… the land of illusions, with the veneer of civility and prosperity, in truth the essence of destitution and lunacy. I know this land; it is my birth nation, I was indoctrinated in this nation and made insane, like the vast majority of its population. And yet I am blessed for my insanity because I have survived it, and more importantly I remember it, thus I can look at all my lost brothers and sisters and see myself.
I realized upon awakening that it was the height of arrogance to expect everybody else to awaken in unison with me, and so I accept people, as they are, collectively insane but capable of retaining their humanity. I knew for sure that if I could break free, anyone can. I remember how crazy and stupid I was, I remember believing my nation this and my nation that, and I remember pledging my allegiance to The United States of Hypocrisy by reciting the words “with liberty and justice for all”; what a bunch of bullshit! But I believed it.
I owe brother Malcolm X an incredible debt of gratitude for teaching me how stupid I was. I owe my native American brothers and sisters for teaching me of the genocidal history never mentioned in school. I owe my Hawaiian (kanaka maoli) brothers and sisters for teaching me true love of the land and the sea, as well as respect for my elders and the beauty of an extended family.
I owe the United States Marine Corps massively, for providing me my first real taste of injustice; undoubtedly the most critical event of my life. They gave me the rage, for having done the right thing and being punished, they connected me to everyone who knows injustice. How ironic… how beautiful.
I thank one president above all, thank you Dubya, my brother George W. Bush. You more than any other president taught my fellow Americans a lesson that I had known for years. I thank you Mr. President for uniting people around the world, like no other president in my lifetime. But most of all I thank you for forcing Americans to ask themselves, honestly; “do I live in the greatest nation on Earth?” And if so, how is it possible that “my president” is a silver spoon suckin, idiot Yale graduate, Skull & Bones tapped, cocaine snorting, Vietnam disserting, un-elected asshole?
Bill Clinton killed a good million and half Iraqis through inhuman sanctions, including 500,000 plus children. But Americans remained in their coma, oblivious to Clinton the mass-murdering war criminal; but then came George, thank you George, no president did more to wake Americans up, you were the turning point.
People were engaged with Dubya, he stirred them from their slumber, but Obama put them back to sleep. “It’s all good, there is a black man in the White House, everything is cool again!” What a joke. Meanwhile Americans sat by, waving flags and losing their jobs, losing their homes and making a bonfire of their Constitution and Bill of Rights. American sons and daughters turned into psychopaths and sacrificial lambs yet again. America, a nation of and for war criminals. America, making orphans by the millions. America, fighting and “leading” a farcical “War on Terror.”
America became some horrible B-movie, one big B-movie set in Fantasy Land, produced by Zionist lackeys. Only a nation and a world gone insane could have believed the movie was reality. Power to the prostitutes of propaganda, they did all they were ever called on to do. Meanwhile the working class continued working hard, bought their tickets and watched the movie, just so they could go further into debt by gifting the bankers trillions and trillions of dollars. “God bless America!”
Remember this my fellow Americans, a street vender from Tunisia kicked your ass; how beautiful is that? Somehow your slave masters could not manage to stop a single, insignificant man from knocking over the first domino and igniting the fire to which you shall soon be engulfed, literally. If you know what’s good for you, you will see your traitors on Wall Street, in the Congress and the White House for who there are, fast.
Speaking of which, let me say to Hillary Clinton and the other prostitute politicians calling for “restraint” in Tunisia and Egypt; fuck you and fuck restraint. Remain angry my brothers and sisters and channel that anger until the result is achieved, a revolution resulting in a dictators flight. He has shamed the Egyptian people for far too long, bought and paid for by the American taxpayer; there is no “reform” absent his departure. Let Egyptian rage manifest in the form of that cowardly, pathetic excuse of a man fleeing Egypt to join some pathetic and corrupt regime suitable of hosting him. I am not alone in waiting for the news that Israel and America’s Pimpdaddy Mubarak, and all his prostitutes, are fleeing Egypt for good.
And I am loving the “financial crisis, loving the fact that people are suffering in Europe and America, let it get worse and worse, please God I pray for a storm of discomfort. Let the middle and upper class people of the West in particular live like the Bedouins of Gaza I met today, nothing will jump start their conscience more. Let them feel a fraction of the pain and suffering we have dealt to the rest of the world. Soak it up, embrace it, live in the street, go hungry and homeless and get beaten for seeking shelter in the wrong place. Then look in the mirror and see the world you created in your own eyes.
Let us realize once and for all the truth, we are all connected, we, the working class, the un-employed, no matter color, religion, sex, nationality, we are the masses, we have the power. And if we have any sense at all we will see any and all attacks on fellow human beings as an attack on ourselves and our family. With this attitude we will crush any so-called leader/politician who even thinks to bamboozle us with the same bogus game that has played out for far too long.
Enough is enough, the world we created has been horrid, let us thank profusely those who fought while sat on our lazy, indoctrinated asses. Let us now stand together, brothers and sisters, with the people of Tunisia and Egypt in particular. Let us turn the page on the nicey nice social gathering protests that serve to diffuse our rage and absolve us of guilt by allowing us to say; “I protested.” No it is time now for much more effective measures. Direct Action is my chosen method, but general strikes are called for big time. It is time for the workers to bring the slave masters to their knees and to seriously, meaningfully, express solidarity with the people of every occupied nation, including but not limited to, Palestine, Kashmir, Iraq, Afghanistan and my beloved Hawaiian nation.
It is time to fight fire with fire if necessary and make clear to our police and military that if they turn on the people, then they will feel the wrath of the people.
Every government should be made to fear the people and respect the people, period. Let that be our credo, let us shed the fear and instill fear in every tyrant. The Tunisians and Egyptians have put the fear of god in their governments, so should we; our Western governments are every bit as corrupt.
And if our revolutions begin to be replaced by another form of tyranny, we shall rise again the moment it reveals itself.
As for irony, how about this, let us use the words of a despicable institution (The United Nations) and manifest the meaning of the words;
“Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,…” – Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Let us live these words and draw a line in the sand. Either you live these values and protect these values or you are an enemy of the people. The bullshit war on terror and all who support that farce must be exposed and put in their place. Wars of aggression and occupation must end immediately. Those that rationalize and justify war and occupation must be exposed and recognized as enemies of the people. Banking, the fractional reserve system and the Federal Reserve, the central banks and the entire ponzi scheme they enslaved us with must be completely destroyed. Every secret society conspiring to benefit the few at the expense of the many must be exposed and destroyed.
Behind every empire remains the hidden powers and the removal of Ben Ali and Mubarak is merely the removal of their puppets; they have countless more so it is the powers in the shadows that we must finally see. These anti-humans care nothing for the religions or nations that the masses are so wedded to. They can slither from one place to another. Like a chameleon they can change color or camouflage themselves. They must be seen, the truth tellers are doing their part; we need only open our eyes. And open your eyes for this one, the greatest animated film ever made, The American Dream. Watch this 30 minute cartoon, get angry and get real.
I say again, if a street vendor can kick off a global revolution, imagine the power of the people united, intelligent, fearless and indomitable. We can achieve any damn thing we commit to. I say we destroy the banking system and replace it with genuine currencies of real value serving simply as a means for fair and ethical trade. I say we default on all of our loans to the criminal banks, both personal and national, and start over. I say we make criminals of the merchants of death who produce weapons of mass-destruction. And I say we sail to Palestine by the thousands and turn Israel’s ruthless, mass-murdering, fourth largest military in the world into an impotent irrelevance.
Let us realize once and for all, that we the people are one, that we are human, that our most precious gift is that of our humanity. Let us never sacrifice it again. Together we are unstoppable. We are the sleeping giant, we are the waking lion, we are fierce and we are fearless.
If you the tyrants, the bankers, the prostitutes of propaganda and politics, if you are very fortunate indeed we will give you amnesty. But if you seek such mercy, then step down and speak honestly of the crimes against the people to which you aided and abetted and/or committed. Maybe, just maybe, you will become human again. And you can thank us all for being human with you.
If you are the police, the army, the servant of the tyrants, know that you are one of us, and you have the opportunity to serve your true purpose, which is to serve the people. Do this and you will be welcome. Remember, you are commanded by God and/or conscience to serve your fellow human beings; do so at the very moment your traitorous superiors order you to turn on the people. At that moment in which you are being ordered to sacrifice your humanity, put down your weapons and join the people; WE WILL EMBRACE YOU. You will transform from a vassal of tyranny to a hero. You have been placed in your position for this role, do not reject it.
To the tyrants, it matters not what you do to any one of us, we are the people, we are the true power and we are reclaiming it. Do not stand in our way.
To my brothers and sisters in Tunisia and Egypt, my deepest love and respect goes out to all of you. Thank you for showing us the way. May we follow in your footsteps, and without delay; I for one am with you 100%.
