This is simply amazing, the border that Israel controls 100%, the border between Jordan and the West Bank, is now open for the very first time… for TRADE!
Yet, the border controlled by the ‘Muslim Brotherhood’, the border between Gaza and Egypt, remains virtually closed to trade.
Let me get this straight, Israel is opening trade in the West Bank, Egypt is maintaining a blockade in Gaza. Even recently pumping raw sewage into the tunnels between Gaza and Egypt, tunnels that are a lifeline of trade since that Egyptian border is closed to trade.
Is this not shocking beyond belief? Is this ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ in any way a reflection of Islam? I find this so shocking and so disgusting it makes me want to vomit.
Let us be clear, the blockade of Gaza is now, 100%, a Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian blockade. Every bit as much as it is an Israeli blockade.
I am embarrassed that the events leading to the removal of Egyptian puppet Mubarak that I supported 100%, have lead to this. God help the true people of Islam, with so many treasonous false Muslims representing you. It seems you need just as much help as we poor souls of the Western hypocrisies that feign ‘democracy’ but in truth are nothing more than governments run by prostitutes in the service of tyranny.
This world needs one thing above all others, sanity. Sane human beings of all colours, all religions or non-religion, all nationalities, we the sane people of the world must unite. Enough already.
PS – I must repeat yet again my absolute position that aid is almost always nothing more than a ploy for infiltration and subversion. Aid is suffocation, it is being buried alive, it is dependency on the tit of tyranny. It is a dead end. Only self-sufficiency and independence is acceptable. This is the only way to a dignified life. I wish and support the way of true independence for Palestine and all of humanity.
Words from an honest, intelligent and compassionate Jew… words from a respected brother with a hugely important message that should be heeded by every single Jew on this planet.
“It is so terribly and dramatically disturbing to have been raised Jewish and Zionist, and to see the death and destruction that my people are bringing to the world. It is so frustrating to say, “Grow as I have grown, see what I see” and to only hear the same broken record of Jewish victimization and accusations of “self-hating Jew” in response. If I, as one born and raised in this death-crazed narcissistic cult, don’t know how to resolve this desperate situation, how will anyone else figure it out? Please- Jews- my people- you are desperately sick. The whole world sees this and knows it, and yet so many are afraid to say so for fear of being called “Anti-Semite”, while you kill children and refuse to be embarrassed by your blatantly evident tribal mental illness. But the world will stop being afraid of you, and cease to tolerate your murderous narcissism, and the result will be terrible for you. Please, please stop before this happens. Stop before you kill another child in Palestine! STOP THE KILLING IN GAZA!” Rich Siegel

Today was the final hearing for the case against the Trade Not Aid hijackers Cate (Catherine) Myles (aka Soraya Fitzgerald) and Sammi Coulthard (aka Saja Rana & Maitreyi Atmaja). It cost over £600 in court fees, money that should have gone directly into the cause. It took countless hours of work collecting evidence to establish the crime, something I wish I could have avoided. But today District Judge Evans actually infused just a bit of honour into the embarrassingly corrupt UK system… a system so blatantly servile to Israel/Rothschildland. Today Judge Evans ordered that the stolen 18-ton Renault truck and Metrorider Minibus, along with all donated goods onboard are to be returned to Aloha Palestine CIC & Samouni Project within 28 days.
We also managed to affirm with the judge the need to assess the condition of the vehicles and the likely theft of stolen property onboard before we can identify any necessary financial compensation; thus this can only be assessed when we get access to the vehicles, so within 28 days we shall see.
In the course of the hearing Cate Myles acknowledged that hijacker Cath (Catherine) Jenkins has been in possession of the vehicles on behalf of Catherine Myles, Sammi Coulthard and the so-called “committee” that includes essential hijacker Saeb Shaath. Let it be known however that since Cath Jenkins has had physical possession, any damage to these vehicles will be her direct responsibility. To be clear, hijack “committee” includes Saeb Shaath, Allison Hubbard (aka Vera Lynn), Douglass Myles (aka Gabriel Standish), Jez (Jethro) Cuthbert, and of course Cate Myles, Sammi Coulthard and Cath Jenkins.
Let it be clear that the Facebook slander that sufficed for the UK police to protect these criminals and convince some of you that I am a bad person was pathetically transparent in a court room and the judge appeared genuinely awed by Cate Myles claim to be the “owner” of these vehicles. The judge several times asked hijacker Myles how it was that she could claim ownership when “she had supplied nothing” to support her claim? But again, let us remember that these same bogus arguments worked fine for the corrupt UK police… so Cate Myles was emboldened to lie… continuously… on record and in writing Something I am so grateful for as the official court transcript will be the final nail in Cate Myles coffin proving that she is without doubt, a fraudster, thief and one who has willfully, intentionally perverted the course of justice.
Perverting the course of justice is a serious offence. It can only be tried on indictment and carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The offence is committed where a person:
- does an act (a positive act or series of acts is required; mere inaction is insufficient)
- which has a tendency to pervert and
- which is intended to pervert
- the course of public justice.
Cate Myles claimed numerous times in court and in writing that Trade Not Aid was a “voluntary collective” and get this, that the stolen vehicles were the property of “the people of Gaza”. Oblivious to her own bullshit she unashamedly claimed to be the self-appointed “owner” of the property of the “people of Gaza”. In the course of this argument she supplied not one witness statement, not one bank statement, not one shred of evidence to support that she raised the money or bought the vehicles. It all came back to this illusory “voluntary collective” spiel that is code language for the hijack crew who conspired to steal the Trade Not Aid mission.
Let it be clear that, although I am directly responsible for raising the money to buy these vehicles, I am not now nor was I ever the “owner” of these vehicles, they are in fact the assets of the non-profit companies I formed, companies formed for the expressed and legally mandated benefit of the people of Gaza/Palestine. Aloha Palestine CIC and Samouni Project were formed for reasons of accountability and credibility and the fact that some people were so blind as to not see this only shows the gullibility of many so-called “allies” of Palestine. Let it be clear that I am happy to say good riddance to all those who have judged me negatively and falsely, especially given the fact that Zio/Facebook slander was the primary method of their Godlike judgement. Thank you to the idiots, thank you for exposing yourselves. I will take one known friend over ten thousand false ones any day.
So one step forward, but there is still the matter of the at least £20,000 that was deposited into Cate Myles account in trust for the Trade Not Aid mission. I have compiled a detailed and comprehensive report of 336 pages that exposes the sordid, criminal actions of the hijacking crew, and this evidence has been submitted by me personally to the Hamas Government in Gaza in September 2012. I can assure everyone reading this, that 336 page document makes painfully clear that Cate Myles has stolen this money and fraudulently claimed I was the criminal so as to deflect attention away from her.
While the police in the UK have protected Cate Myles from criminal prosecution here in the UK, I can tell you that the government in Gaza does not blindly swallow the rubbish that incessantly spews from the mouth of Ms. Myles. Evidence is evidence, slander is slander, and that is why I have offered to pay for Cate to travel to Gaza, all expenses paid. Will she take me up on this offer? Of course not, but please Ms. Cate, prove me wrong and take your slander and lies to Gaza and respond to the 336 pages of irrefutable evidence I have submitted to the authorities there.
What is needed now is a genuine revival of support for the Trade Not Aid mission and that means money to get the vehicles inspected, repaired if necessary, stored safely and prepared for the journey to Gaza. But this time I am not going to work seven days a week for free to make it happen. I accept the fact that it is not up to me, it is up to US. It is up to WE the people. I will work a reasonable amount of time, free of charge once again, but only when the money is raised to pay for drivers, and yes I mean paid drivers, will this mission go forward. How long it will take to get the needed funds to purchase the ‘Made in Palestine’ products for export to Europe and beyond is unknown to me and not up to me. It is up to US/WE the people.
So if you really want to make this happen, go to the following link;
Click the ‘Donate’ button and give something. Whether it is £5 or $5 or 50 or 500 is a matter for you to decide, but do not make an excuse. Forgive me my mistakes in trusting some horrible people and give so that these vehicles head to Gaza sooner rather than later.
To be clear, I will receive this money this time around, and has always been the case in the past, all of this money will be used for the stated purpose of the Trade Not Aid mission.
No joking, no fooling… as one of my respected brothers often says. It is time to put up or shut up. There are bee hives and textiles and computers and industrial sewing machines and educational materials and more waiting to be taken to Gaza and given to the Samouni kids and the good people of Gaza. There is a truckload of ‘Made in Palestine’ products waiting to be exported to Europe and beyond and while there are many worthy causes, this is a cause that should have happened long ago. Its time will come when WE make it so… so let’s make it so.

My next article – soon to be released
‘The Age of Responsibility’
At what point do we as people take responsibility for the actions of the governments we outnumber tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands to one? At what point do we take responsibility for the governments we pay our blood money to in the form of taxes? At what point do we as people stop making excuses and accept the fact that we are complicit if not active participants in the crimes of our governments?
I say now is the age of responsibility. Whereas we might have pitifully claimed ignorance in the past, which is no defence for a crime, we cannot claim ignorance any longer. We are responsible.
Preface – Below you will read of DC Paul Harry of the Swansea Police, the man who falsely arrested me on November 2, 2011. This statement is being sent directly to him, as well as his immediate superior, Detective Inspector Darren George, Professional Standards of Swansea Police, the Independent Police Complaints Commission and of course many others in the independent media realm and law.
Infiltration & the Erosion of Trust
There is something admirable about an honest enemy; I rather respect people who at the least state very clearly who they are and what they stand for. Even if their views are morally repugnant, I still maintain a level of respect for the honest yet offensive opponent. The liar on the other hand, that is a different matter. The liar might be and often is the “nicest person you could ever want to know”, but an honest jerk is much better in my book than a lying “friend”, or as it is in my case, lying “volunteers”.
In my view the liar, fraudster, infiltrator and collaborator is the most vile of them all… and make no mistake, they are everywhere in this so-called “movement” of ours.
‘They show how Special Branch penetrated the (anti-Apartheid) movement from top to bottom, infiltrating meetings, recruiting informers and obtaining documents. Officers snooped on leaders including MPs, two of whom are now Labour ministers. Police spies slipped into meetings of local groups which were attended by as few as five genuine campaigners.’ – The Guardian (‘Documents show how Special Branch infiltrated Anti-Apartheid Movement’)
One of the most insidious aspects of infiltration is the erosion of trust. Think of it this way, how can a “movement” get meaningful work done when the people who comprise it and the leaders leading it cannot trust each other? The answer of course is work becomes difficult at best, and such our movement for a better world, all too often stumbling along with one setback after another. It is like this that the end goal of the powers that be is maintained, and that is the status quo of course.
And so it is that an activist leader like myself invariably will have more personal contact with devils posing as friends/volunteers then most can imagine, this is the nature of the game. I know this so very well, I understand how infiltration works, but with limited resources and big goals you have to be able to trust, and if you can’t, you really need to get out of activism. And in all honesty, I am probably more valuable in other ways. But I am not a quitter, I like to finish what I start, and I remain fully capable of trust, my faith in humanity will not be destroyed, absolutely not, I know far too many beautiful people. And for sure, the Samouni Project and the Trade Not Aid Mission must and will move forward.
But my purpose in this statement is to shed light on what has happened with the Trade Not Aid Mission so as to enlighten people in the tactical use of infiltration and subversion, a tactic I consider the most effective tool for the powers that be to quell the progress of virtually every social movement. But before we get into that…
The Head of the Snake
Let us start at the root level; let us address the “Head of the Snake” as it were. Let us understand the so-called financial system. The financial system denotes a system run by a tiny minority of the individuals who are undoubtedly the greatest fraudsters and financial terrorists in human existence. They have managed through treasonous “public servants” to acquire the ability to ‘legally’ print fiat money, to print money out of thin air. Furthermore, since their money is inherently debt generating, we all, the people, the 99%, we become enslave by debt. Entire nations are in debt, the vast majority of people are in debt, and we are in debt to the richest of the rich, the greatest fraudsters and thieves to ever walk this planet. Think about that next time the prostitutes of propaganda talk about “the debt”, because it is that debt which essentially says all the working class people have not worked hard enough, no, no, we all owe the Rothschilds and their ilk more money, trillions and trillions to be more precise. They are in the most incredible way mocking us. And in a way I respect them, I mean, if we the masses are so incredibly stupid as to allow this tiny minority to get away with it, I reckon we are more pathetic then them. Nonetheless, if there is one priority in the creation of a better world, it is the absolute destruction of this system and justice for those who have conspired to protect and maintain it.
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes her laws.” - Mayer Amschel Rothschild
Private control of the money supply is ultimate Earthly power, and it is that kind of power the bankster families have wielded for centuries, with devastating affects. All we need to know about the corruption and endless war humanity has been locked within can be understood by understanding this simple, fraudulent system. The ‘Money Masters’ are behind almost every war you can cite, usually investing in all sides. Their scam inherently encourages and manipulates never-ending wars, while providing the added benefit of dividing the people.
It is in this context that we find the most vile, bloodthirsty and sociopathic rising to the highest levels of power, below the Money Masters of course, while people of honour and integrity are punished, imprisoned, framed and often murdered.
Make no mistake, so long as we allow the banksters to continue this madness we the people will be victimised by it. The banksters can outspend the good people of the world a billion to one. For them money is not even paper, it is zeros added to bank accounts from the offices of Goldman Sachs and Barclays and all the rest of them. This system buys every last person that can be bought, so when you look at the top of the pyramids in politics, media, corporations, law enforcement, intelligence services, and yes, even within charities and social movements, eventually this system co-opts and corrupts every thing that can be corrupted.
This is the method for achieving controlled opposition, it wears the face of the sheep, but behind its mask it is indeed the wolf.
“The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” - Vladimir Lenin
If you fail to understand this reality, you will have no clue at all of how the world truly functions. It is the ignorance of this reality that preserves its existence and maintains the tyranny that threatens to climax in the form of full scale World War III and nuclear Armageddon. Simply put, the stakes could not be any higher.
Support for Palestine = Contempt from the Powers That Be
Now if you want to effect justice in this world, especially in Palestine, and you are making any real progress in this area, you better be prepared for what will come. I have prepared myself as best one can for any consequence.
In order to repel the temptation of the honey trap or material wealth you will need to be beyond the pursuit of material wealth. Such people, those who is not addicted to material pleasures, they simply cannot be bought. I am such a person, I actually want the entire system abolished so that everyone will have what they need, I will not fight for the crumbs that the banksters and their minions brush of their parasitical dining table. By western standards and with this mentality I am in financial terms a poor man, but in real terms I am blessed with riches that money can never buy.
I believe this is why the powers that be have not tried to buy me; they have done their personality profile and concluded that I am indeed one of those who cannot be bought. When you see me driving a flash car and/or reversing myself of who is responsible for 911, this will be your first clue I have been corrupted. But don’t hold your breath, I intend to die with my integrity intact and even if I am effectively framed for a crime I did not commit, the truth remains in the all knowing wisdom of the universe and if I am to face my maker I will have nothing whatsoever to fear. I am not alone in this way of thinking, far from it, and it is such people that are impossible to control.
I know the game, and I shall deal with it and face it with the most powerful weapon of all, the truth.
Although my life did not begin on the Mavi Maramara, the humanitarian ship attacked in international waters by Israeli pirates in which 9 good people were murdered/executed, it was the aftermath of my role on the Mavi Maramara where my position as a first class enemy of the powers that be was cemented. It was from that time on that the tactic of slander was increasingly employed against me.
Slander & the ‘Terrorist’ Tag
In the aftermath of the Mavi Marmara and upon my release from Israeli jail and subsequent deportation to Turkey, the Israeli Defence (Offence) Forces issued a press release stating that I was an ‘operative of the Hamas Terror organization’ and that I was going to Gaza ‘in order to form and train a commando unit for the Palestinian terror organization’. Well you know you hit the big time as a humanitarian in this Orwellian world of ours when the greatest terrorists on the planet are calling you a terrorist. I am proud to share the company of the Founding Fathers of the United States, Nelson Mandela and countless others falsely labelled as terrorists simply because we refused to bow to tyranny and suckle from the tit of corruption.
In 2011 the honour was elevated when Rep. Gus Bilirakis of the United States Congress introduced a bill that links me to ‘Al Qaeda’. As Mayer Amshel Rothschild so arrogantly but all too rightly implied, the lawmakers are nothing more than minions. What more incredible display of that do we have then the last speech of Netanyahu at the United States Congress in which he received no less than 29 standing ovations.
Enemy Within the Gates
If ever there were an example of a “democratic” nation bending over, grabbing its heels, and taking it where the sun don’t shine it is in the spectacle of my birth nation, the good ole US of A, in full blown self-destruct mode. These bootlicking Chickenhawks in the US Congress mock every red-blooded American Patriot, it is way beyond embarrassment, it is treason that spans decades and which is on hyper display today. It is infiltration in full bloom; it is the enemy within the gate.
“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” – Samuel Adams
The US Congress epitomises the last stages of Empire in decline, awash with decadence, exuding corruption, detached from reality and drunk on its own fraud-based power. It is the perfect display of what powers the Money Masters have over those who lust for money. If it can have this affect on people in such high levels, what affect can the powers that be have on the street criminal?
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero
The UK government is no different from the US Congress, they are just a little bit more experienced and thus know a thing or two about how to avoid being seen as bought and paid for. While the idiot Yanks in Congress are on full display with their obsequiousness, the British/European political counterparts get to play the “civilized” role. And in terms of real power, London houses more high-level fraudsters and thieves and terrorists than any city on planet Earth. And the UK Parliament is a direct extension of this power gone mad, all the while looking oh so ‘civilised’.
“All the world’s a stage,” – William Shakespeare
And below them we have the various branches of government and all too importantly, the physical arms of the powers that be in the so-called “intelligence” services, the military and the police.
“My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military.” – Smedley Butler
Who Rises to the Top?
So we have the bankster families (powers that be) at the top of the pyramid, and these powers seek out and reward people with very specific qualities, the best of which will occupy the top levels of every institution that serves them. Regardless of the actual position, the essential quality sought by the powers that be for their legions of minions is a lust for money and power, for material wealth, often times fueled by sexual desires and perversions. These are the hallmarks of a person with a low level development, like so-called “primitive man”, these lot are motivated by food and sex. Today that manifests in the form of money and power. If you want the true qualifications for “stature” and “fame” and so on in this collectively insane world that is run by psycho/sociopaths, these base qualities are it.
So when we look at the world and all our so-called “leaders” what we will see is a large collection of hand selected sociopaths charged with maintaining the system. Morals and integrity are repugnant in such a system, although you always have some groomed actors who play the integrity role when needed. Colin Powell’s UN speech that sold the invasion of Iraq to the easily duped is a classic example.
Stupid is as Stupid Does
Almost all of these people have been thoroughly brain washed in so-called “higher learning” institutions, indeed the dumbest of the dumb are graduates of Harvard and Yale and Oxford and Cambridge. It is among these useful idiots that you find and endless supply of ‘experts’ who can educate us dumb masses about Saddam’s WMD threat and how 19 “Jihadist” hijackers armed with box cutters, lead by a man with Cocaine residue probably in his nose, possibly with a hangover, who just left the strip bar in Florida, after having sex with his stripper girlfriend, were all in turn lead by a man in a cave in Afghanistan who together managed to disable all of the mighty super powers air defences and defy the laws of physics and pull off 9-11.
It is like a bad B-movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger, surely it is all one sick joke, but no, we are supposed to believe this fairy story.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity, and the champions in this area are the ones rewarded by the powers that be. Don’t get me wrong, these minions can read teleprompters, many have great memories, they can articulate, they can not answer a question a million different ways and make the most simple reality a quantum physics exam.
So for sure, never, ever, lose your sense of humour. Look at this world like a reality TV show and the people are all trying to one up each other on the bullshit meter. If you do take it a little too seriously you might just seek out 18 buddies and a set of box cutters so as to vent your rage and pull a 9-11.
All this madness explains a lot about my very independent way about doing things. I simply have not found a group that I feel really right with, so I initiate my own missions, always unique, always intending to fill the void. But such goals require us to work with each other, there is clearly no other way to effect real and positive change. Thus I seek to connect with genuine people for genuine good, but humans can be incredible liars, and trusting people make for easy targets.
The Role of the Police & Intelligence Agencies
When I was last in the stolen nation of Hawaii, otherwise known (incorrectly) as the 50th State of the United States, a Special Agent of the FBI at my door, so I invited him into my mother’s home and we sat and talked for two hours or so. I did as I always do, I spoke politely and respectfully and completely honestly to this man; one of the luxuries of having no fear and nothing to hide. Furthermore, I looked at this man and I saw myself not too long ago. As a 19 year-old US Marine I believed there was honour and integrity inherently within the Marines, I was an idiot. And I was far to naïve to realise the direct contradiction in attempting to maintain personal honour while in reality serving a system of tyranny.
Nonetheless I refuse to paint all police and all military or FBI Agents with one brush, we must make distinctions between those on the ground, and those at the top. Of course you have gross corruption and violence and abuse of power at the lower levels, but many in the police and other such positions do have honour and when the big move in the last throngs of power is made by the powers that be, the ones with honour in the police and in the military will stand up. Just as they did under dictator puppet Hosni Mubarak in the face of a fearless and unrelenting Egyptian public.
Nonetheless, there is obvious and hideous corruption within the police and their systemic policies that do grave harm to society. One such trait is the use of informants and infiltrators. This is the realm of the professional liar; this is where the professional fraudster lands himself or herself the ultimate job. Here is how it works. The police, MI5, MI6, CIA, Mossad, Special Branch or any other such entity, identifies a highly skilled fraudster, but only after having caught them (or framing them if necessary) in some criminal offence that will land them a long holiday in prison. In the US such a person will likely be reminded that “unpopular” inmates can find themselves in a place whereby their heterosexual status will be involuntarily converted to homosexuality via gang rape. There are similar such threats that can be wielded against women.
It is at this point the fraudster/criminal will be “made an offer they can’t refuse.” They are given two options however;
1. A long, torturous and possibly terminal prison term.
2. Regular pay in their chosen profession (fraud), as well as police, judicial, media and government protection, in return all they have to do is some work in infiltration. Their pay and protection being contingent upon befriending people under false pretenses, providing inside information and possibly subverting social causes, sabotaging or even framing innocent people. People like me for instance.
So it is, prison and gang rape or money and protection. In this way, with virtually infinite cash and resources behind them, the powers that be have infiltrated practically every level of society, especially the “problem” sections of society such as the black community, immigrants, Asians and for sure, Muslims and Arabs. And without question, every social movement has swarms of these characters I am describing above, two-bit fraudster sociopaths with the uncommon ability to lie and the servile lust for material gain… or outright fear of the alternative. These criminals who used to fear the police now have them as backup.
‘At the centre of the latest controversy is a set of documents, obtained by the Guardian and the BBC’s Newsnight, indicating that another police spy, Jim Boyling, who lived undercover among the environmental group Reclaim the Streets, concealed his identity in a criminal trial, giving false evidence under oath about his real name.
‘The accusation that police deliberately subverted the judicial process, and at worst sanctioned perjury, prompted outrage among lawyers and parts of the judiciary and led to the last-minute postponement of a major report into undercover policing of protests by the newly appointed commissioner of the Metropolitan police, Bernard Hogan-Howe.’ – The Guardian (Met facing mounting crisis as activist spying operation unravels)
This Guardian article goes further to say;
‘All seven spies shared similar modi operandi: they appeared out of nowhere, often had access to vehicles and showed an unflinching willingness to help run the logistics of protest organisation. Unlike undercover officers who penetrate serious criminal gangs, typically for no more than a few weeks or months, agents deployed in protest organisations are authorised to spend years living double lives as campaigners.’
Although the above description is not perfect, it does so closely resemble the primary infilTRAITOR of my Trade Not Aid Mission, one Catherine Myles to be specific.
Hijacking of the Trade Not Aid Mission & Police Protection for the Hijackers
What has happened to me is I have made the grave mistake of trusting people who are all too likely assets for Special Branch. Proving this is almost impossible however, but certain types of behavior go a long way to exposing the person and their true agenda. Put simply, Catherine Myles has managed to steal, blackmail, commit fraud and pervert the course of justice right under the nose of so-called “law enforcement”.
Let me make this crystal clear, she has blatantly, provably, committed the crime of fraud, theft, blackmail and perverting the course of justice, and not a peep from the police.
“Well come on Mr. O’Keefe, give that proof to the police and they will do as the law requires!” And this is what the mind controlled person will assume, there is no part of the their programming that would allow for them believe the police and criminals are all too often one and the same.
Nonetheless I have supplied the police with all the proof required to establish that the crimes of Ms. Myles. What did the police do when I supplied this evidence to them? Well they arrested me of course… for “fraud” no less. “Fraud by False Representation” to be precise, and they did this on November 2, 2011.
Perverting the Course of Justice
The accusation used to justify my arrest is pure comedy. The claim was that I had lied to Catherine Myles, Jez Cuthbert and Cath Jenkins by saying I was the head of a “charity”, and on that basis I solicited their help in getting donations for my “charity”. Only later did they “realise” that I was in fact the Managing Director of a company, and that is when they realised they had been defrauded. They thought, so goes their fairytale, that I was the head of a “charity”, not a company, God forbid. And it was this testimony and nothing more from Catherine Myles, Jez Cuthbert and Cath Jenkins that was used to arrest me. 3 people, just 3 fraudsters, were all that it took to arrest me. Next time I will expect at least 10 such criminals. With this the police stole (seized) 9 of my hard drives, two computers, one camera, my mobile phone, and reams of documents and most perverse of all, my DNA, which was taken against my expressed will of course.
Here is the problem with this action; I had already provided verifiable and conclusive evidence to the police, all recorded of course, that Catherine Myles was;
1. A fraudster who had lied to the police on several levels.
2. A blackmailer who threatened a material witness of mine about her having stolen the vehicles of the Trade Not Aid Mission. Again all verifiable, with the witness providing a written statement and volunteering her testimony with electronic communications proving the blackmail as well. That witness was never interviewed.
3. A thief who had knowingly stolen two vehicles, a truckload of donated goods and somewhere in the area of £15,000 that were deposited directly into her account as the “accountant” for the Trade Not Aid Mission.
4. A pervert… well that to I imagine but actually that she had perverted the course of justice as well by knowingly giving false testimony to the police which directly resulted in my arrest.
So let’s get this straight, Catherine Myles was provably been shown to commit 4 serious crimes, the last of which is punishable with a life sentence, and rather than her facing justice, I was arrested for what is a patently absurd accusation of fraud by false representation. What does this tell us? Well we can conclude one of two possibilities.
1. Either the investigating officer, the man who ultimately arrested me, DC Paul Harry of the Swansea Police, is the most thick, stupid, bumbling idiot of a cop who would give Mr. Bean a run for his money in the idiot department. Or…
2. This minion was charged with protecting the infiltrators, denying me the return of the stolen property, arresting me (but not charging me) so as to put a cloud of doubt over my head and drag out this disruption for as long as possible.
Although DC Paul Harry is clearly a very stupid man, that is not the explanation for what he has done. Clearly it is number 2 above that is his remit.
How can I make this charge? Surely I am waving the red flag in front of the bull on this one. Indeed I am and I say to the powers that be and their servile minions in the police and otherwise, bring it the fuck on. As I have said, I will die with my integrity intact and nothing makes me stronger than injustice and having to deal with bullies and abusers of power. I did not ask for this battle, but it has been brought upon me.
Here is the absolute proof that Catherine Myles and DC Paul Harry and his entire department have perverted the course of justice, a crime let us remember, that is punishable by up to life imprisonment. Let me quote directly from a UK Government website just what is perverting the course of justice.
Perverting the course of Justice
The offence is committed where a person:
• does an act (a positive act or series of acts is required; mere inaction is insufficient)
• which has a tendency to pervert and
• which is intended to pervert
• the course of public justice.
All that is necessary is proof of knowledge of all the circumstances, and the intentional doing of an act which has a tendency, when objectively viewed, to pervert the course of justice.
A false allegation which risks the arrest or wrongful conviction of an innocent person is enough.
Extracts taken from the UK Crown Prosecution Government website
To summarise, if someone has knowingly told a lie to the police and the person they lie about might POSSIBLY be arrested, much less does get arrested, is perverting the course of justice.
Here is the proof that Catherine Myles has committed this crime and that the police know this to be true? This is taken directly from Catherine Myles own blog.
So what we have above has already been verified by several Trade Not Aid convoy members who also read this blog, it is undeniable, and it is 100% prove of a serious crime. But there is something extremely important to acknowledge here, by the police refusing to even acknowledge this evidence, much less arrest and charge Catherine Myles, they are proving beyond any doubt that the police themselves are perverting the course of justice.
It is not often we have such concrete proof of serious criminal behavior with police involvement. It is not that the police do not do this sort of thing often, they do, but to have proof like this is a bit of a gift really, I am ready for them to make their move, this is my move. Ah but it gets even better.
‘Fraud by False Representation’ by Catherine Myles
What if I had proof that Catherine Myles was guilty of ‘fraud by false representation’? Remember that one? The thing I was arrested for on November 2, 2011. Surely it is not possible that the person whose testimony was used to justify my arrest was in fact provably guilty of that very crime. Well it is possible, and here is the proof.
What you see above is Catherine Myles soliciting funds for a “charity”, which is exactly what she accused me of doing, but of course I do not have a charity. Thing is that ‘Palestine Aid’, the “charity” she seeks money for, is not now and never has been a charity.
So when it came to me, 3 fraudsters said I said I had a charity and I was arrested and my property stolen as well as my DNA being taken against my will. When proof that Catherine Myles actually committed this crime, what happens? NOTHING!
Police Aiding & Abetting in the Theft of Trade Not Aid Vehicles, Donated Goods & Money
Moving on, in August of last year I made a complaint to the police about the Trade Not Aid vehicles (18-ton Renault Truck Reg. #V97 DBA & Optare Metrorider Minibus Reg. # P420 VRG) being stolen by Catherine Myles, Jez Cuthbert, Cath Jenkins and Saeb Shaath. All communications and evidence required to establish lawful ownership of these vehicles was of course provided to DC Paul Harry. Once again, here is the correspondence that proves this claim.
As a cover to avoid returning the clearly stolen property DC Harry arrested me on the bogus fraud charges on November 2, 2011. His superiors also directed him to drag out the investigation as long as possible so a date of April 2, 2012 (5 months later) was set to either bring charges against me (which was never going to happen) or conclude ‘no further action’. Well I waited these sickeningly long five months, thinking that at the end of these five months surely they will be forced to return the stolen vehicles. Well I was wrong.
Immediately upon my solicitor being told there would be no further action against me (March 30, 2012) he acted in accord with my direction, which was to demand recovery of the stolen vehicles and property. I always knew I would have to go to court to prove Catherine Myles has stolen somewhere in the area of £15,000, but the vehicles and donated goods onboard I thought surely must be returned. On their first conversation it looked like that was what DC Harry was going to do, even saying, “Mr. O’Keefe will need an HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) licensed driver” for the 18-ton truck. The next day however he did a Jekyll & Hyde routine, not only was he not returning the vehicles, he would not even answer where the vehicles were or even if the “investigation” I had initiated 8 months earlier was still in progress.
He also revealed in coded language that this decision had come from above, as if I did not already know this. There is no doubt that DC Harry is just a willing dupe, and he like other such dupes will be hung out to dry by his bosses when he has exceeded his shelf life. I know this as an ex-Marine as well, and countless veterans know what I am talking about, including my dead father. Countless so-called “heroes” are left to languish with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), cancers and birth defects and other maladies caused by exposure to experimental drugs and toxins like depleted uranium (DU). Many will commit suicide or beat their wives and children or end up homeless with not one bit of help from the governments who sent them to kill or be killed.
Understanding this I feel pity for DC Harry, he is a small-minded man being used up by a system that is a voracious and rapacious exploiter of ‘human resources’. If the world does change for the better, and I believe it will, the DC Harry’s of the world simply will not exist.
There is so much more I could say about Catherine Myles, Saeb Shaath, and the rest of the people who have worked for and nearly achieved the goal of destroying the Trade Not Aid Mission. Indeed right now, today, the vehicles that Catherine Myles stole from the Trade Not Aid Mission, remain in her possession. As I have previously mentioned she also holds stolen donated goods and somewhere in the neighborhood of £15,000 of stolen money from the Trade Not Aid Mission, all of this being dutifully protected by the UK Police.
So my priority at this moment is getting back the vehicles and donated goods. My problem is that with the police protecting this fraudster, my only weapon is the truth. While the police remain un-exposed they remain capable of aiding and abetting in the crime of fraud, theft and perverting the course of justice.
As you will recall on March 30, 2012 I was informed that the police would be taking “no further action” with regard to the investigation into me. Surprise surprise. So after five months of depriving me of my property, having access to everything I have ever written, emailed, videoed, every file on my hard drives, “no further action”. I tell you what, and I apologise to the easily offended and my Muslim brothers and sisters, but given this reality I want to express my honest thoughts to the police involved in violating me and my family as they have. GO FUCK YOURSELF! That goes to you DC Paul Harry and also to all the minions and the powers that be that have done what they could to defame me and harm my mission for Palestine.
Let us be clear, I am not the victim hear, I will never be the victim as I will never sacrifice my self-respect. The real victim is the good people of Palestine who have languished while our corrupt governments have provided material support, including weapons of mass destruction, preferential trade, billions in “aid”, and total cover for all the hideous crimes Israel commits against the Palestinians. And let this be clear, even though some collaborators of Palestinian blood who will be employed to try and defame me, I am a Palestinian. My heart and my commitment are to a Free Palestine. The way of Palestine is the way of the world. If I ever back peddle on that, then you know I have been compromised.
FOR THE RECORD – I see the so-called ‘two-state solution’ as the second Nakba, I see it as totally unjust and I hope the Palestinians never accept such an unjust deal. Although I fully accept that this is 100% up to the people of Palestine. I am a Palestinian citizen however and if I am allowed to vote on such a decision you will know where I stand. I want justice plain and simple, and justice requires;
1. 100% full right of return of all the Palestinian refugees spread around the globe.
2. That every single Palestinian prisoner in Israeli jails is freed. And I mean every single one.
3. That every single person who can provide valid proof, whether it is land deeds or titles to land, pictures of them on that land, testimony that this was their home, they must be able to re-occupy and possess that which was stolen from them.
4. Full and complete compensation for the loss of life and property.
5. That the entire Apartheid system of Israel is dismantled and a system chosen by all the rightful citizens of Palestine replaces it with a government of their own choosing. Whatever form that may be.
These are just some of the prerequisites for justice in Palestine, but right now, I redouble my efforts for real support in the Trade Not Aid Mission. The only thing stopping this mission is not the police, or the governments nor the powers that be, it is us, it truly is up to us. We must simply never give up.
Power to the people, rise the hell up, 2012 is the year.
The holier than thou thought police within the so-called ‘Palestinian Solidarity Movement’ have said the following in response to a recent speech I gave at Middlesex University in London;
‘In line with these principles, we wish to openly state that Ken O’Keefe is not welcome to speak on our campus. We urge Middlesex University Free Palestine Society to distance themselves from his comments, and condemn them as anti-semitic.
‘We invite our fellow student Palestine activists to add their societies names to this statement.’
My response is as follows.
Given that my wife and children are Semitic, it is seems the critical thinking abilities of the above thought police is a bit stunted to say the least. So let me help you out a bit by providing the actual meaning of the word Semitic;
1 relating to or denoting a family of languages that includes Hebrew, Arabic, and Aramaic and certain ancient languages such as Phoenician and Akkadian, constituting the main subgroup of the Afro-Asiatic family.
2 of or relating to the peoples who speak these languages, esp. Hebrew and Arabic.
Your lack of linguistic knowledge or more likely participation in the abuse of language with regard to this word is not surprising, especially as it becomes more obvious that the so-called ‘Palestinian Solidarity’ movement is rife with infiltrators and subversives posing as friends and allies of Palestine. As the saying goes, ‘with friends like these, who needs enemies’.
The truth is that my actions, and my words are those of a person unafraid of the political correctness traps to which you seem to have submitted yourself. You might well call me an “anti-American hate monger” and imply that I paint all Americans with the same brush when I have repeatedly called the United States the “greatest terrorist of the 20th and now 21st centuries.” But I have never seen anybody suggest I be banned from speaking for having stated these words.
But alas, speak the words deemed taboo by the thought police and one becomes unworthy of speaking at all. Think of how incredibly holier than thou and up your own arse it makes you sound when many if not all of you, do not have a Palestinian wife/husband, or Palestinian children, who have likely never been to Palestine, certainly have not risked nearly as much as I have in defending Palestine, say that I am unworthy of speaking about Palestine or any other issue in universities where I can assure you, many people would be happy for me to speak. The arrogance and hypocrisy is quite simply over the top. And if there are Palestinians among this cadre of thought police who genuinely think that I am a liability rather than an asset to the Palestinian cause, then stand up and say so. I certainly will respect you for having the balls (in a figurative sense) to say so.
To put things in perspective, just over a year ago I was presented the Key to the City of Gaza by the last elected Prime Minister of Palestine, I guess I will have to settle for that instead of your approval.
Also noted is how you have provided a link to my speech, one that purposely edits out the context of what I said. This is either a massive mistake on your part or a deliberate act that exposes your transparent agenda in attempting to marginalise a genuine ally of the people of Palestine. Just in case you have made a mistake, here is a link to my entire speech;
As if my words in the above speech were not clear, let me repeat, I seek the destruction of every government and institution that is actively participating in the destruction of our world. Some being so corrupt and vile that there seems little to no chance in them being reformed, I include the US, British and Israeli governments in this category, along with the United Nations. All of these entities are vile and disgusting and are taking us straight to hell on Earth via World War III.
Let me be clear however, I do not give a free pass to the crimes of all the other corrupt, racist and violent entities and governments out there. I simply recognize the obvious, in terms of total destruction and suffering, the entities I reserve my greatest scorn for, specifically the so-called ‘western civilisation’ I come from, represents the gravest threats we face in this tragic world of ours… we are in truth, barbarians.
As much as you seek to censor me or ban me, all you have really done is expose yourselves and a significant problem facing the Palestinians and everyone else genuinely involved in the struggle for justice. That problem is the false allies of truth and justice, the subversives posing as friends and the dupes to blind to know how much these characters are manipulating them. The direct enemy is plain to see, a more honest enemy, and in this regard I respect this enemy more than the western “liberal” dupe who is either so full of himself, or so corrupt, that he is blind to the traitor to humanity role he plays.
I am a disciple of Malcolm X’s way of thinking, on more than one level. With regard to friends and foes he was astute, he was right. He had no illusions regarding the illusory differences between the Democrats (friends to the black man) and Republicans (racist enemies). “One is the wolf, the other is a fox. No matter what, they’ll both eat you.”
In the 1964 presidential elections, when the US presidential candidates were Lyndon B. Johnson (the “peace” candidate) vs. Barry Goldwater (the “war” candidate), Malcolm X exposed the deceit of this phony distinction.
“The shrewd capitalists, the shrewd imperialists,” he said, “knew that the only way people would run towards the fox (Johnson) would be if you showed them the wolf (Goldwater). So they created a ghastly alternative . . . And at the moment he (Johnson) had troops invading the Congo and
This is my perspective, you, the thought police and false allies of Palestine, which can even include people with Palestinian blood, are the ones attempting to provide cover for the tyrants by prohibiting meaningful deliberation into matters that are of the most critical importance to our world. A stark example of this is the Jewish supremacism that is of dire consequence to our world. This is the taboo subject you are charged with enforcing, and in doing so you take sides with the same racist, supremacist ideologies you claim to oppose. I am proud to be opposed by you, I shall wear your Scarlet Letter as a badge of honour.
I depart by saying that any group of people, whether it is the disciples of Hitler, the Christian Zionists of America or the Jewish supporters of Israel, or the brainwashed false Muslims, I say loud and clear, any group that believes they are “chosen” by God and thus superior to anyone else, is an enemy of all humanity. Combine this sort of supremacist ideology with the power of America and Israel and we have a recipe for the end of the world. The stakes could not be any higher, and you, my poor, poor minions, are on the wrong side of history. You are not the friends of Palestine or justice, you are the guardians of tyranny whether you know it or not.
Thus far the following thought police entities have saw fit to stand by an anti-Ken O’Keefe agenda;
Glasgow Caledonian University Palestine Society
Leeds University Palestine Society
Dundee University Action Palestine
Edinburgh University Students for Justice in Palestine
Glasgow University Palestine Society
Liverpool University Friends of Palestine
It would seem that Scotland has a segment of the population feeling inclined to ban me from Scottish Universities, I invite the people of Scotland to express whether this is representative of their national perspective. If you wish to speak on or against my behalf, please go to the following link and say what you have to say, in fact I encourage all of you to do this. Perhaps the thought police are right, perhaps I should not be allowed to speak at any university in the so-called ‘western civilisation’.
As Israel once again flexes its psychopathic tendencies, I feel the need to expose the hypocrisy of the west once more in the form of a picture.
The mass murdering criminal UK Government and its equally corrupt police, the ones who are happy to protect Israeli war criminals in the UK by destroying universal jurisdiction. The same UK that is home to the worlds biggest fraudsters and financial terrorists, otherwise known as the banksters. This same UK Police that falsely arrested me on bogus ‘fraud’ non-charges so it could steal my property and support the criminals who have attempted to destroy the much needed Trade Not Aid Mission. This pathetic and corrupt government and all of its other minions and lackeys can stick it where the sun don’t shine. I will happily go to prison in this Godforsaken land as the price for shouting the truth. So let me repeat; Israel is a criminal state. As is America, which is the ultimate terrorist state and uber-hypocrite. Israeli Mossad worked with high treason traitors in the US government to set explosives in the twin towers and building 7 on 9/11 so as to instigate the fraudulent ‘War on Terror’, a horrendously, purposely un-ending war that has maimed and murdered millions and counting. All for the ‘full spectrum dominance’agenda that intends to enslave every survivor of this madness.
What I said the other night is more than true, Israel is beyond an Apartheid state. Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu have made that ever-clear, the people of Palestine and the scars they bare are a never ending source of proof.
I repeat, as we continue to sit on the edge of the cliff that is full scale World War III and likely nuclear annihilation, that every racist, corrupt, war murdering state, as well as the UN in its current form, should be destroyed. This includes more than any others, the true ‘Axis of Evil’ in Israel, Britain and America. These three nations are the scourge of humanity and the greatest threat this world has ever faced. Hitler will look like a saint compared to those behind these criminal states if they have their way. Mass de-population is not a ‘theory’, it is their ultimate agenda knowing full well that the fraud they have perpetuated on all of the people is being irreversibly exposed. Their time is running out… and they know this.
These three nations, along with a disgraced and disgusting UN, must be destroyed in their current form, in their place must be people who represent the true will of the people and an absolute commitment to respect for every single persons rights. The right of people to be free and to be happy is sacrosanct, fuck you with your ‘security’ bullshit, the people want freedom and a dignified life, your Orwellian frauds are your own demise should you continue to maintain this facade of ‘democracy’ and ‘civility’. The west have acted like true barbarians and all of us from these lands are guilty for the actions of our criminal governments to one degree or another.
We as people must take responsibility, we must stop shifting blame. These bastards could never get away with what they are doing if we were not so weak, divided and ultimately pathetic. Whereas they are tyrants, we are pathetic for allowing them to exploit and violate us as they do.
There will never be peace in this world as long as we the people allow this disgusting, fraudulent scam to continue. The truth is the truth, and when we rise, the banksters more than anybody else, better beg for forgiveness. And their minions, servile minions to the powers that be, these revolting, stomach churning puppets like the Tony Blair’s and Obama’s and so on, should just spend a few years in Guantanamo to think things out a bit… if they are lucky that is.
I propose a one year amnesty period for all the criminals who come clean, but if they do not, then they should be treated as they have treated others, like sub-human animals with no rights whatsoever.
In a world like this I am ready for whatever comes my way, slander, threats, torture, imprisonment, death, I like every genuine, intelligent person know all too well the price for wielding the truth. So it really does not matter what happens to me, because whenever it is that I meet my maker I shall smile, knowing that I did my best in this very, very fucked up world of ours. I have shown my ultimate respect for all life and made my life an example of the price we should be willing to pay in order to make the world right. I am not alone, I am proud to follow in the footsteps of countless people who made one decision, to face the tyranny without fear and without compromise.
And I am hopeful, I know we the people have the ultimate power. I know it is merely a matter for us to realise this fact, to seize that power, to ultimately create a better world. A world built on truth, justice and ultimately peace.
Watch and share the speech that could mark my imprisonment. Here is the Jewish supremacist Jewish Chronicle’s article spouting their same old hasbara.
I do not understand the French language, but I understand the meaning of this music video all too clearly. It seemed more than fitting to share it with brother Khader Adnan in mind. Brother Khader is refusing to accept the unacceptable, detained without charge by Israel, like so many others, with no human rights to speak of. I have met countless Palestinian prisoners while in the West Bank and Gaza, each and every one of them was tortured by the Israelis. America is no better, with Guantanamo, Bagram, Abu Ghraib and many others, fellow human beings rot away in dungeons and we have the nerve to call ourselves ‘civilised’. We are barbarians, all of us, for allowing our traitorous governments to effect this ongoing mass torture. We have not done all that we can do and thus we are all, to one degree or another, collectively guilty.
Like so many before you, and surely many more to come, between death with honour or life without it, you have chosen the former. Nothing but love and respect to you my brother, and to all the brothers and sisters of this world who refuse to accept the unacceptable, who resist the tyrants and their minions, who live and die with honour. There will be justice. TJP

Carrying on from the ludicrous claim by the Israeli Defence Forces (Offence Forces) that I am a ‘terrorist operative for Hamas’, myself and a US citizen, along with the IHH humanitarian aid organisation and several Turkish nationals are named as having ‘known links to Al Qaeda, Hamas, and other terrorist organizations’ in a US Congressional Bill now being processed through the traitorous US Congress. Here is the applicable paragraph;
‘(9) In 2010, IHH organized a flotilla that included the ship Mavi Marmara carrying 40 IHH members, including Fatima Mahmadi, Ken O’Keefe, Hassan Iynasi, Hussein Urosh, Ahmad Umimon, and others with known links to Al Qaeda, Hamas, and other terrorist organizations who were armed with 100 metal rods, 200 knives, 150 military self-defense vests, 50 wooden clubs, gas masks, and a telescopic sight for a gun.’
Read the entire bill here.
It seems we are living in Orwell’s ’1984′.
In the last year and a half alone I have been jailed and/or interrogated five times by four governments under Orwellian terrorism pretexts; once by the Israelis (in which I was beaten), once by Canadians (held for two days), once by the Americans, and twice by the British. That is just the last 18 months. So what happened 18 months ago? The Israeli massacre on the Mavi Marmara in which I was involved in disarming two of their commandoes. Israeli power brokers and Zionist agents have hated me ever since. Even more so when I referred to “Israel’s best” as “cowards”, on BBC HardTALK .
Following on, we have the British government, Israels alter-ego, doing their part in the ongoing slander campaign against me by arresting me on bogus ‘Fraud by misrepresentation’ allegations; allegations that were made by the hijackers of my Trade Not Aid mission. A mission that addresses the needs and desires of the Palestinian people to escape charitable dependancy and live a dignified life.
So the UK police have used blatantly spurious allegations as the excuse to arrest me and steal my property for the second time in six months. They have also stolen my DNA (by forcefully removing 15 strands of my hair), a gross abuse of human rights and useful ‘evidence’ to frame me in the future. Oh but they wouldn’t do that now would they?
In the last eighteen months I have had my personal property stolen and/or seized five times, once each by Israel, Canada and the US, twice by the Brits. Each time of course everything on my hard drives is copied and scrutinised with a fine tooth comb by ‘intelligence agencies’. These agencies are in fact terrorist agencies of the highest order, especially when we look at Mossad, the CIA and MI6. Imagine having all of your business and private matters in the hands of such enemies? Continuously. So right now it is the Brits’ turn, having stolen and retaining possession of my property for over two months, with an eye to keeping it until April 2012. Keep in mind this is the second time in less than six months the Brits have done this. They have two of my computers and several hard drives, plus my phone, personal documents and even my camera.
There is always a way for governments to violate the rights of the people, in this case the facilitators are Catherine Myles, Jez Cuthbert and Cath Jenkins, primary agents in the hijacking of my Trade Not Aid mission. These crooks falsely alleged that I had defrauded them by saying my mission was a “charity” when in fact it is and always has been a non-profit social enterprise. Their actions fit the classic profile of infiltrators aligned with or working directly for Special Branch, a notorious element of the UK police who make infiltration, subversion and even murder their business.
The likelihood of Special Branch involvement is made harder to ignore given that the allegations against me hold absolutely no weight whatsoever, never mind the fact that they are made by provable fraudsters.
Let us look to my press conference in Gaza last May, a press conference the police have been made aware of, it makes clear that my method of effecting positive social change is, once again, through TRADE… NOT AID, via “social enterprise”;
Additionally, my bank statements prove that I take no pay. So who is the “fraudster” exactly? The police, government, mass-media and the banksters perhaps?
The fact is that my history of activism, social enterprise and ability to articulate the crimes of the powers that be is what has made me a target. In terms of where I invest my time, the majority of it is dedicated to social enterprise. Accordingly, I won a fellowship position with the prestigious London School for Social Entrepreneurs in 2010. I was also featured in Social Enterprise Magazine twice. Both times highlighting my Aloha Palestine trade mission for Gaza.
So the record shows my position over and over and over again, Trade, Not Aid, is what is needed in Palestine and what I have spent years to develop. This is completely undeniable and a matter of public record. Yet the police arrested me because they saw merit in Catherine Myles, Jez Cuthbert and Cath Jenkins claiming I said I represented a “charity”. It is the most pathetic, transparent excuse to steal my property and thwart my humanitarian work and why should any of this surprise us? It shouldn’t, because the British government is every bit as traitorous in its bend over subservience to the Apartheid state of Israel, as is the American government; traitors all.
So I have no money, again 100% verifiable, because I take no salary and do not even cover my expenses. In fact I have incurred provable debt for the work I have done. In particular with the playground I built in Gaza for the Samouni children.
Whats more, although I have the legal and moral right to take some pay for the work I do, from the money I raise no less, I have not taken any pay since early 2009 and that was a pittance which was agreed by the donor who supported the launch of Aloha Palestine. How many directors of charities, organisations or social enterprises work for free? I don’t know but I have, and the reason I do not take pay is because there is never enough money to do all that needs to be done. So I do the best I can with the limited resources I have got.
What is even more astonishing is that I have absolute proof that Catherine Myles, Jez Cuthbert and Cath Jenkins are guilty of the fraud they accused me of. The police know this because proof has been given to them beyond what I have posted here. Despite this, the police have used the allegations of fraudsters who are 100% provably guilty of soliciting donations for a charity that did not exist, as the basis of arresting/harassing me on that very same charge.
What’s more, these same people have attempted to give cover for their theft of Trade Not Aid cash, donated items and vehicles by launching an un-Godly slander campaign in which they have said I am a thief, conman, womaniser, adulterer, that my children are illegitimate, that I am a ‘Nazi’ and a ‘white supremacist’, that I was nearly arrested in Gaza twice, that my Palestinian wife is ‘worse than me’ and that I have effectively stolen from the Samouni family in order to fatten my pockets.
This is a classic example of ‘Ritual Defamation’ as practised most effectively by the greatest liars and defamers of our time, the Zionists.
I have never referred to Aloha Palestine, the Samouni Project or Trade Not Aid as charities and I have taken no wages for my work since early 2009, and yet I have been arrested by one government for fraud, accused of or linked to terrorism by two others.
Will the UK police arrest the real fraudsters? Not a chance. Why? Because their objective is the same as Israel and Americas, perpetual harm for the people and nation of Palestine. Anyone in or from these nations who seriously endeavours to effect justice in Palestine is in effect, regarded as an enemy of the state.
Back to the pitiable traitors Myles, Cuthbert and Jenkins, here they are soliciting money for the non-existent charity ‘Palestine Aid’.
With initial cover by the UK police, Palestine Aid is what these same scoundrels attempted to turn Trade, Not Aid, into. And this attempted transformation reveals something extremely important to understand if we truly care about the people of Palestine, and that is that a trade mission like mine is hugely problematic to the Zionist/EU partnership. Why? Because my Trade Not Aid mission will aggressively expose the EU’s disgustingly immoral trade with the Apartheid state of Israel, trade that amounts to over 25bn Euros annually, while the people of Gaza live in abject, donor dependent poverty.
Make no mistake there is massive money made within the ‘Aid Industry’ as I call it. Money to be lost by Israel should it lose its grip over the captive market of Gaza that survives on the aid dependency tit that Israel controls. The EU’s role in providing cover for the collective punishment of the people of Gaza, which includes over 800,000 children, is massively important to Israel. As I have said my mission intends to highlight the EU’s criminal complicity and active support for Israeli crimes in a bold and damning way. And it is through shaming the EU that we shall open up trade for real and end the blockade of Gaza.
We as people who claim to care about Palestine have done no favours to its people by investing so, so much of our energy into aid. We are reinforcing the aid culture that Israel wants and the EU facilitates. Well I listened to the people in Palestine, and they never told me “we want more aid”. They talk about justice and dignity, and that is why I created Trade Not Aid.
Given that my mission seriously threatens the status quo, I find no favour at all with the government or their police in the UK. But Catherine Myles, Jez Cuthbert and Cath Jenkins most certainly do, hell they seem to hold a ‘get out of jail free card’, and that pretty much says it all.
But hold on, it gets even better.
Not only can we establish that those accusing me of fraud are in fact fraudsters and thieves, but the police have been informed by myself, my solicitor and others that the primary fraudster, Catherine Myles, has had at least £10,000 (but probably twice that or more) deposited in good faith to her account for the benefit of the Trade Not Aid mission, and that money is still completely unaccounted for. The UK Police have the authority to verify what we have alleged, and if they were not stooges for the powers that be they would have established beyond any doubt that Catherine Myles has zero credibility, and furthermore she is a thief who has stolen over £10,000 of donations, holding it for purposes unknown for over 6 months now… with police cover no less. So who are the fraudsters?
It has become crystal clear to me that the whole reason for this travesty is to justify the police stealing my property and casting doubt on my integrity. At this point it looks like the UK police will conclude their sham investigation by returning my stolen property after six months and saying it was all a “civil matter”. At which point I have to rely on the corrupt UK “justice” system to recoup this stolen money and property. This all takes time and money and more importantly it delays the mission. Which is the whole point now isn’t it, to get me to give up or at the very least to delay it all, water it down, Zionize it and make it another bullshit band-aid on a gushing wound ‘aid mission’.
Watch this video to see what I am talking about when I refer to the ‘aid industry’ and how those running it are doing so to inflict massive harm to Palestine;
Here is the truth, the British, US and Israeli governments are one and the same, a true ‘Axis of Evil’ comprised of puppets of the powers that be. The police within these nations have proven over and over again that they are servants to these traitors and tyrants. “Just following orders” as it were, like any good Nazi would.
Catherine Myles and Saeb Shaath have played the critical roles in thwarting the Trade Not Aid mission. Myles was the key infiltrator, subverter, Shaath was the Palestinian turncoat who gave false legitimacy to the hijacking. He is also responsible for attempting to turn ‘Trade Not Aid’ into ‘Palestine Aid’, a non-existent charity focussed on bringing more second hand shoes and stuffed animals to Gaza. Ultimately these people are victimising the already terribly victimised Samouni family, all the while using disgusting slander to support their treachery. This has put innocent women in grave danger in Gaza, once again all done with the UK police providing cover.
The point of all this madness is to intimidate me, it has not worked. Listing me as a terrorist is meant to scare me. It has not worked. Stealing my property and copying every last bit of my business and personal files is meant to frustrate me and stop me from carrying on. Once again, not happening.
While these bastards in MI5-6 and/or ‘Special Branch’ are copying every single file I have ever saved, looking into every single thing I have ever done, I say to them you are shameless cowards all. Good luck to you in doing your personality profiling of me, trying to find any weakness in me, any area to exploit, good luck.
And of course, if there was even a shred of evidence that I was a fraudster, they would lock me up in a heartbeat.
And if I was Arab or Muslim? I would have been put away long ago, or outright assassinated. But I am white, making things just a little bit trickier.
And so these pathetic minions will have to make something up. When and if I am judged by my maker, I have absolutely nothing to fear. I am not one of the traumatised, fear induced masses, I will die with honour no matter what fraud or threat is used against me.
But I want this to be clear as well, for the honourable ‘intelligence’ agents or police reading this, I extend respect to you. I know you are there and I like many am counting on you to do the right thing when your orders amount to treason against the people. To the military, same thing. You are caught up in a machine that is using you, dishonouring you, and at some point you will know this and in order to redeem yourself you must speak out and disobey your unlawful, immoral orders.
The lesson here? The lesson is that when the ultimate fraudsters and terrorists call you a fraudster, terrorist, womaniser, thief, Nazi, conman, etc., you must be doing something right. So regardless of the effort to stop me from doing what I do, the next phase of the Trade Not Aid Mission will be launched, and we will see just how much damage to this cause the Zionist slander tactics have had. Either way I will never turn my back on my Palestinian family, whether it is my wife and children who have Palestinian blood, or my extended Palestinian family who I love deeply; there will be justice in Palestine.
For now however the world remains upside down, it is up to us to turn it round and make it right. Until such time I will take the accusations, arrests and harassment as a badge of honour.
PS – On the bright side, I filmed 26 stories in Gaza that have been edited and will be published on YouTube in the next few weeks. With the initial editing done we need only finish them off to the standard I require. Thankfully this entire job was made possible because I transferred all the video files to a friend before the police stole my property. For sure however this theft has prevented me from doing some important work, and of course that is part of the plan. I do not have my most vital piece of equipment, the laptop I use for all sorts of business, most notably my videos. I have had to borrow a machine to do this as I do not have the money to replace my equipment once again.
As I look over Dale Farm today I see the inevitable world envisioned by the 1%
A toxic, scarred, inhospitable landscape, a terrestrial hell suitable for Satan himself
I see a socio/psychopaths delight, a delectable appetiser… with a main course of World War III… and a desert of nuclear Armageddon
“Coming soon to a theatre near you” (very, very short pause) as it were
I see the 99% constructing the ultimate prison, a prison large enough to imprison everyone… minus the 1% and their minions that is
I see the 99% voluntarily entering the prison and locking the prison door behind the last man, woman and child
I see the 1% with devils smiles as the 99% grovel
I see the 99% begging to be liberated by the 1%
I see the 1% laughing fiendishly, uproariously, as they eye the key to the prison door locked within the petrified hearts of a traumatised, mind controlled and compartmentalised 99%
I see the irony of humanity endowed with mastery of its collective fate… locked within a prison of it’s own making
I see Lemmings, I see Sheep
I see wage slaves and collective insanity
I see people fearing their governments instead of the other way around
I see Apartheid South Africa, Jim Crow America… I see Palestine
I see Soviet Gulags, Robben Island, FEMA Camps, Bagram, Abu Ghraib, San Quinton and Guantanamo
I see Baghdad, Gaza, Beirut, Belfast, Kabul and Tripoli… I see Hiroshima and Nagasaki
I see my human family, intentionally, manipulatively, sadistically, divided…(longer pause) and yet I see my family igniting, uniting
I see Dale Farm… a microcosm,
I see Dale Farm… a wake up call
What do you see?
UPDATE – For the idiots who bought the lies and slander of Catherine Myles (aka Soraya Fitzgerald), Saeb Shaath, Jez Cuthbert, Cath Jenkins, Allison Hubbard (aka Vera Lynn), Sammi Coulthard (aka Saja Rana & Maitreyi Atmaja), Mary Rizzo, Mary Shepherd, Miri Wood, Jo Ann Westcott and court jester Ismail Patel (aka Iggle Piggle), here is a little revisit of a post that shows just how stupid some of you can be.
You see, a pack of lies, repeated parrot style, is all that is needed to dupe the idiot. For the robber barons named above the justification for the theft of the Samouni Project/Trade Not Aid was based on me being a;
4) Nazi/white supremacist
6) Money launderer
7) Wealthy landowner
8) Murderer (yes I murdered or was involved in the murder of Vittorio Arrigoni according to some of these people)
10) Violent thug
11) Abuser of women
12) Media whore
13) Basically I am simply a conman using Palestine and human rights to rake in millions.
For the idiot, the fact that so many people can say or repeat so many bad things is all that is needed. So who pays? This may seem a rhetorical question but it is not; so seriously who pays? Well hard as it is to believe a person like me, someone grounded in morality and genuine brotherhood can never be victimised because victimisation is rooted in denying ones humanity, and I will never do that. So I am not the victim here, I am fine, continuously blessed actually, despite the personal discomfort and injustice of the hijacking. The truth is that not being on the road for at least two months has resulted in me spending more time with my family than I had thought possible. As a result I am a better, hands on father. A true blessing if ever there was one, turning a negative into a positive big time.
So if I am not the victim, who is? Well first let me say that I have experienced for many years this smear tactic, I have been accused of being a thief and CIA and other such slanders since 2003 when I lead the Human Shield Action to Iraq. It was at that time that the powers that be could see that I might present a bit of a problem for them. I am not alone in this characterisation, so it is nothing new at all to any of us who have stood up and faced the tyrant’s head on. To the contrary, it is an inevitability to be slandered, as this is one of the favourite tactics of the tyrants and their minions. If you are doing something real, you will be attacked, end of.
If I was not being attacked you could rightly write me off as a blow hard that the tyrants can ignore. Clearly the tyrants, the Zionists, American imperialists and so on do not like me at all, and they have a supply of money that has up to now been as abundant as the paper they print their fiat, monopoly money on. And so it goes they will do all they can to assassinate me physically (although this would have to look like an “accident” or like Muslims or Palestinians did it). Or they will do all they can to assassinate my character, which is exactly what this well orchestrated campaign is all about, such is the reward for the type of work I do.
So let us return to who are the real victims in the campaign to smear me and steal my mission? No surprise here, first among them is the Samouni family. The bond that we created is a powerful one, one that has lead to more people being aware of the hideous crimes Israel committed against this family. For this reason alone these tyrants are scared about me being part of the Samouni family, because I have the ability to make their story more well known, and importantly, to show the American people how they are guilty of slaughtering Samouni family members and more. Of course any intelligent observer would already have figured this out. Here is just one video that shows what I am talking about;
If the slander campaign against me were to be truly successful I would give up or rendered useless and the Samouni family could go on as they have, suffering, traumatised and to a great degree, hopeless. So let this be clear, those that have abandoned me and/or my mission, based on a pack of lies no less, have in truth abandoned the Samouni family. I could not steal from this family any more than I could steal from Palestine, to do so would be to steal from my own family. Did I leave Hawaii, my own business, money, life in paradise doing something I loved so I could take great risk with my life in order to exploit the people of Palestine and a family like the Samouni family? Idiots and dupes can believe such nonsense, and that is precisely who the slander crews prey on.
So this brings us to the ultimate victims, the people of Palestine as a whole. Allies like myself, like my brother Vittorio Arrigoni, do not grow on trees. There are very few of us and although we are flawed human beings, our hearts and our conviction drive us to support justice in Palestine in every way possible. To kill people like Vittorio or assassinate my character serves nobody more than Israel because Palestinians lose essential allies whose only agenda is for truth and justice.
So as per usual it is lies and the gullibility of people that maintains the victimisation of the people of Palestine. As an example of just how stupid people can be, take a look at slanderer idiot Ismail Patel’s (aka Iggle Piggle) post and my response from September 22.
http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=234620566586881 (since removed by Facebook, what a surprise)
This joker (Iggle Piggle) is part of the Catherine Myles, Saeb Shaath ‘Palestine Aid’ monstrosity, an ‘Aid’ organisation that is seriously attempting to steal vehicles, cash and cargo/aid given to me for the Samouni Project/Trade Not Aid, and pass it off as something given to them and their disgraceful project. Iggle Piggle announced last month that he proudly serves this pack of thieves.
What I am going to say here is critical to understanding how easy it is to manipulate some. Iggle Piggle stated in the linked post above that he had been “threatened” by me, a direct threat to his life and his “family”! And he further stated that he had this threat recorded and that the recording had been “handed to the police”. In addition his farcical “legal team” was advising him, that is code for Catherine Myles and the slander crew were guiding him in his lying ways. Iggle Piggle also said that I was a “bully” and that he and his family feared for their safety!
Here is the thing, an idiot who knows nothing of how slander works and whose memory is so Goldfish like that all the good work a person has done can vanish in the wake of a lie(s), will believe such lies because “surely he/she would not say he/she had recorded evidence of such threats if he/she did not have it.” Ah, actually, that is exactly what a pathological liar and slanderer will do. This is just one tactic of the slanderer, and an effective one for the idiot, the idiot will believe or at least give certain credence to the lie and when the evidence is never provided or the arrest of the alleged criminal never happens their Goldfish memory forgets such matters and all that sticks is the mud of the mudslinger.
And you know what, if you have no morals, if lying is a thing that comes easy to you, as it most certainly does to the Israeli’s, then this is a great tactic. If you are like me however, unwilling to return lies with more lies, and your only weapon is the truth, you are at a disadvantage as the position of attack with such lies is more damaging then the defence of ones character with truth. Lack of evidence matters not to the dumb witted, outrageous accusations ala News of the World sensationalism is all that is needed.
Anyway, here it is over one month later, my alleged threat to Iggle Piggle and his family that was recorded and handed to the police has resulted in… nothing. I have received no call, no visit, no nothing. Apparently I can violently threaten an entire family and nothing happens to me… right.
The truth is Iggle Piggle, along with the Catherine Myles, Saeb Shaath hijack team are pathological liars. Saeb Shaath will go down as among the most treacherous and treasonous of all, he has been party to a theft of goods destined for the Samouni family. He has acted to cut the family out altogether and this is proved by his own words, he is a traitor in this regard.
“The best thing is to make Trade Not Aid block Aloha Palestine and Samouni Project.” – Saeb Shaath July 25, 2011
Never mind me, this has never been a personal dispute, this is about infiltration, lies and Zionist styled treachery, taken right out of the Zionist handbook. But despite the early success of this plan it is beginning to crumble, and soon enough even the idiots are going to take a big bite of humble pie and admit, “I was a flippin idiot!” Bank on this.
And a special note of shame shall go to any and all Muslims who bought into, fed or spread this backbiting and slander, something that every genuine Muslim knows is expressly condemned in Islam. Here is an example of how you have been played, by a false Muslim like Catherine Myles;
This email was sent to a witness of the Samouni Project/Trade Not Aid fraud and theft, this witness was subsequently unsuccessfully blackmailed by the fork tongued, false Muslim Catherine Myles. It is just this same type of sweet-talkin, false Muslim chatter that is used to prepare the unwitting dupe into believing the next stage of slander;
Some Muslims in particular have turned your back on a brother, me, a genuine brother who has done more than his fair share justice. You turned your back and in a cowardly way let some false Muslim con artists spread filthy lies in true Zionist style without so much as a peep. You have not only acted an idiot, you have partaken in a plot to steal from the Samouni family.
For my part, I deserve to be condemned for my horrible judge of character, although we must have some level of trust in order to effectively work for justice, there were things I could have done to prevent them from driving off with vehicles, cash and donated goods. For my part I will do as I have always done, learn, grow, be that much stronger.
To my Muslim brothers and sister, with regard to what these vipers have accused me of, Allah knows the truth, as do I. As a Muslim I believe your duty was to repel any accusation not based on verifiable fact… especially since the verifiable truth of my work for justice is undeniable. According to my understanding of Islam a brother would have stood by me until the accusations were made consistent with the facts. But that was never the case for too many of you. When it comes to friends like these, they are not really friends at all.
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who forgives and accepts repentance, Most Merciful”
Let me repeat one thing, I along with Allah know exactly what I have done. I know the truth, and the truth is I could not give any more for the cause and thus I am blessed. Only the most infantile and mentally stunted man believes that “an easy life” is a blessed life. My life is full of challenges because I fear not the consequences. My love of truth and justice is such that I will never sacrifice my honour, I will die with my self-respect and that is not something many people can honestly say to themselves. To say such a thing and to have it be true requires that a person do right no matter what the cost. I can say this… can you?
For a person to say of another, “He cannot control his tongue (or he has a loose tongue)” is undoubtedly one of those things that a person would dislike to have said about him. If it is true, then it is gheebah (backbiting), and if it is not true then it is buhtaan (slander).
Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2317
Simply praying five times a day does not a Muslim make, even I know this as a non-Muslim. With regard to Catherine Myles or Saeb Shaath I have spent considerable time with both, months together all tolled, and I have seen neither pray even once, much less act like a Muslim in terms of honesty, fairness, loyalty and justice.
And this brings me to my last point on this matter, does it matter that I am not a Muslim? The Islamaphobes want people to believe that deep down all Muslims see non-Muslims as infidels and much like the Talmudic version of Judaism, the fingernail of a Jew/Muslim, is worth more than all of the goy/infidel life. To some Muslims I have never truly been a brother, I am simply a non-Muslim, slandered and easily abandoned despite the good work I have done and continue to do for Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
So read the above post again (removed by Facebook) and know that Iggle Piggle and that whole clan are nothing but a pack of lying thieves, and know that I will recover most of the stolen goods, but not all, because WE did not confront these miscreants as We should have.
No worries, a few good people and myself are doing the work that needs to be done, the Samouni family will have justice, and the mission I created will achieve its goal, because WE shall indeed make it so.
As a last note here, I have far too much fruitful and important work to spend much more time on the assets and agents of deception and or defending myself. The only real reason I am doing this is to help people understand the nature of deception and how it is used to divide and control. It is important we understand these methods and what is happening to me offers a great opportunity to educate those who are otherwise oblivious to these tactics. The lying and slandering, infiltrating and subverting strategy is an immensely effective one and it has prevented much good work from being done. Learn through me and let us become wiser and stronger together.
The divide and rule strategy is essential to the maintenance of tyranny, we as people must transcend the artificial barriers put between us by these tyrants and realise that we are all part of one human family, our collective fate inseparably intertwined. Using lies to foster division is as old as tyranny itself, they are one and the same because a people in the knowledge of the truth could never be so stupid as to fight each other while the tyrants look down on them as the dupes they are. This is our prison, and only we can free ourselves from our self-imposed prison.
To: Catherine Sarah Myles
From: Ken O’Keefe
Subject: Demand for Return of Trade Not Aid Property
Date: August 9, 2011
Let is be known that the pictured 18-ton truck has been fraudulently registered in the name of Catherine Sarah Myles and taken to a destination unknown and against my expressed will. The registration of the vehicle in Catherine Myles name has been verified by the Metropolitan and Swansea Police Departments. Upon legal advice and the advice of the Police I am hereby making a public demand to have the truck in question, reg # V97 DBA, handed over to me with the log book so it can be returned the mission it was intended for. This vehicle shall be registered as an asset of Aloha Palestine CIC, a trading company to which I am the Managing Director and which was set up to conduct trade with Palestine. It is also demanded that all cargo on that truck, cargo that includes trade items and aid, including medical aid, be protected and returned as it was when the vehicle was taken away from my charge. The property value of the cargo has been valued at £20,000+.
Stolen property of Trade Not Aid mission
Let it be know that there is a paper trail that includes a bank transfer, emails and a third party witness that will all verify that the funds used to purchase this vehicle were raised by myself, Ken O’Keefe, and that these funds were held by someone other than Catherine Myles until I directed this person to transfer said funds to Catherine Myles. This witness verifies the fact that this vehicle was never to be registered in the name of Catherine Myles, instead it was to be registered for the Trade Not Aid mission, of which Aloha Palestine is a partner.
Let this also be known, Catherine Sarah Myles has absolutely no legal claim to this vehicle, the registration of the vehicle in her name is fraudulent as it was always to be used as an asset of the mission that I created and which was endorsed by the Samouni Family in Gaza. The formation of a “committee” that rubber-stamped a hijacking of the Trade Not Aid mission, along with the subsequent slander campaign by Catherine Myles is the only basis of her holding the property of the Trade Not Aid mission. Never did Catherine Myles have any ownership rights to this vehicle and taking this vehicle with the cargo was done in direct opposition to my direction as the leader of the mission.
Having reported this matter to the Police, having consulted with legal counsel, it has been verified to me that should this go to court, with the facts as they are, especially upon public notice being served in an attempt to recover said vehicle, that Catherine Myles will be subject not just to civil liability and financial compensation, but criminal charges for fraud and theft.
The only way for this matter not to result in a legal process in which I will pursue criminal charges is for the vehicle, the cargo, and the monies raised on the Trade Not Aid UK Tour (approximately £4000) to be returned to me within three days (by Friday August 12, 2011). If this demand is fulfilled I am willing to consider not pursuing libel charges in response to the charges made by Catherine Myles and the “committee” she heads. In these spurious charges Catherine Myles and her partners state that I am a thief, a Nazi and that I attempted to lure young women into my apartment in Gaza. The latter charge has subsequently put peoples live in Gaza in danger and all three of these claims, among many others made, are completely false and according to UK law constitute libel and defamation of character.
To date, the Trade Not Aid mission has lost two fund raisers in August due to the hijacking of the mission. Property worth considerable money that would have seriously enhanced this mission has been withdrawn until this matter is remedied. These are provable damages that are intended to harm me, but they also harm Palestine and the Samouni family.
The longer this hijacking continues, the less chance there is of me not pursuing criminal charges to the fullest extent of the law. The libel charges are absolute and the theft charges are likewise should this public notice be ignored. A hard copy of this notice is also being served to Catherine Sarah Myles legal address so as to satisfy the requirements of the law in attempting to recover stolen property should this notice be ignored.
I request that friends of Catherine Myles post this on her wall and also spread this notice far and wide.
I shall repeat one last time, in the interest of the missio, I will consider not pursuing libel and criminal charges, charges that can be proven beyond any doubt, if all demands are met within three days. Let it be known as well that I have continued contact with the Samouni family in Gaza and they are now fully aware of this hijacking and the attempt by Catherine Myles to steal property used for the benefit of the family. The Samouni family have also retained legal counsel and I am acting in cooperation with their solicitors.
To help contact Catherine Sarah Myles at firstname.lastname@example.org, demand that the property be returned immediately.
During Operation Cast Lead Israel committed massive war crimes for all the world to see. Among these crimes the use of White Phosphorus in densely populated areas, use of Depleted Uranium, bombing civilian targets of all sorts without military necessity, destroying civilian infrastructure with no military justification and the infamous massacre of the Samouni family… among many other crimes.
In the aftermath of Cast Lead, Justice Richard Goldstone, a Zionist Jew, was commissioned by the United Nations to write a report on the alleged war crimes. Although the report did not go nearly far enough in exposing the brutality of all the crimes committed, crimes committed by the fourth largest military in the world against a essentially defenceless and captive population, it did allege that Israel (and Hamas) was almost undoubtedly guilty of war crimes and possibly, crimes against humanity.
But on April 1st, 2011 Justice Goldstone had an apparent change of heart and effectively said that he was wrong. With regard to the Samouni family he said, Israel simply made a mistake. It seems that the world in which we live in, a world of impunity for the favoured Israeli state, is set to continue. Unless of course we the people decide enough is enough. – Ken O’Keefe
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.
To make a contribution right now go to; http://www.indiegogo.com/Samouni-Family-Community-Centre-Classroom-1?c=comments%2F923%2Fdescription%2F0%2F0
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…’
This is a letter from Ted (from Liverpool) who pretty much dismantles BBC; please share.
An absolute joy to read. I will be spreading this enthusiastically and look forward to seeing how many of the “journalists” at the BBC manage to report the truth about their disgusting propaganda piece. A better world has no room for such trash, and since those at the helm of the BBC have made it their choice to serve invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan and the ongoing occupation of Palestine, I look forward to their inevitable downfall… or takeover by people who actually honour the responsibilities inherent in genuine journalism. One way or the other, the truth will indeed set us free from the propaganda as only the BBC can deliver.
I would refer to the ‘consolidated appeal’ procedure which Michael Fadda, Editorial Assistant to the BBC Trust, has described in his email of 3rd December. This was in response to Richard Lightbown’s complaint of 24th August that the Panorama programme, Death on the Med’, was biased and lacking in impartiality. The procedure described by Mr Fadda is Byzantine and the process so drawn out as to make any final BBC decision, apparently due in April, meaningless.
It has become increasingly clear that the programme was a whitewash of the truth and represents a nadir of the consistent bias displayed by the BBC in its reporting of the Palestine/Israel situation.
This lack of impartiality was confirmed by John Pilger who told us on the Today programme (on 10/12/10) that the BBC had failed to report the UNHRC report on the Mavi Marmara affair on its main news channels – censorship by omission.
The report of the fact-finding mission of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on the Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla was released on 27/9/10. It is revealing and damning and should have been the subject of much publicity; it shows conclusively that US citizen Furkan Dogan and five Turkish citizens were murdered ‘execution-style by Israeli commandos’.
The report states that both activists and journalists on board the flotilla were treated in a cruel and inhuman way and confirms that cameras, laptops, mobiles, passports, credit cards and cash were stolen by the IDF. As John Pilger stated, war crimes were found to have been committed and the report recommends that there is a clear case for prosecution for wilful killing etc – *see extracts from the report shown below.
This Mission report gives unquestionable evidence that ‘Death on the Med’ was a travesty of truth. The BBC should now make an unreserved apology and offer the resignation of the Director General. Under the watch of the current DG the BBC has increasingly shown bias and lack of impartiality in their reporting of the Palestinian/Israeli situation. The BBC appears to be in thrall to Israel – as is much of the American media – it is understood that the UN Mission report did not appear in any US media whatsoever.
The Israeli military and its government have again behaved in flagrant contravention of the Geneva Conventions and should be regarded as a rogue state. For the UK to seek to protect members of the Israeli government from international law procedures – as they are attempting to do on 13th December by tampering with Universal Jurisdiction – makes them complicit in Israel’s serial wrongdoing, as does also the moral support they give in avowing that they are ‘Friends of Israel’
The UK government would be well advised to read the attached UN Mission report, and then to rethink that friendship and their whole policy towards the Middle East.
Ted from Liverpool
*The Mission considers that the same factual circumstances provide prima facie evidence that protected persons suffered violations of international humanitarian law committed by Israeli forces during the interception,
There is clear evidence to support prosecutions of the following crimes within the terms of article 147 of the Fourth Geneva Convention: • Wilful killing; • Torture or inhuman treatment; • Wilfully causing great suffering or serious injury to body or health
Perhaps the most shocking testimony, after that relating to the violence on the Mavi Marmara, was the consistent accounts of a number of incidents of extreme and unprovoked violence perpetrated by uniformed Israeli personnel upon certain passengers during the processing procedures inside the terminal at Ben Gurion International Airport on the day of deportation. These accounts were so consistent and vivid as to be beyond question.
Virtually unreported by the western propaganda machine is the almost daily shootings of Palestinians in the so-called “buffer zone”. This land happens to be the best agricultural land in Gaza and in a state of siege in which 80-90% of the population is reliant upon aid to survive, these shootings are particularly cruel and criminal. This policy is also yet another way Israel effectively, unlawfully, annexes Palestinian land.
Road to Hope Convoy Reuniting in Egypt, could enter Gaza today
Report posted November 25, 2010
This has been an incredibly 5000 mile journey from London. The convoy has been split by forces beyond their control including Egypt’s demand that the convoy take a ship from Libya to Egypt through El Arish Port. This requires significant extra expense and most convoy members being left to fly as cargo ships are not able to take large numbers of people. The obtained significant notoriety when 10 members were kidnapped from Libya to Greece aboard the Greek owned Strofades IV. The owner and captain of that ship were subsequently charged with kidnapping. Some have speculated that outside forces may have played a role in that disruption to the convoy. “This has been an incredibly long road to Gaza and it highlights the incredible obstacles and potential dangers of helping the people of Palestine.” – Ken O’Keefe.
Three of the ten kidnapped convoy members (Ken O’Keefe, Khalid Omar Ali & Younus Malik) have managed to make it to Egypt in order to reunite with the rest of the convoy. They are awaiting the arrival of the 30 or so convoy members who are flying from Libya to Egypt today. Egypt also blacklisted 13 convoy members with no stated reason, most however were members of previous convoys or survivors of the Israeli attack on the Mavi Marmara in May 2010. The only remaining survivor of the Mavi Marmara thus far permitted by Egypt to enter Gaza is Ken O’Keefe who was involved in disarming two Israeli commandos.
The ship that brought three other convoy members, 30 convoy vehicles and £500,000 worth of humanitarian aid has offloaded at El Arish port today, after being blocked by Egypt for the last four days. If all goes smoothly the convoy will be entering Gaza through Rafah Crossing today. Although the convoy began with 101 members, it has dwindled to the necessary amount of drivers, 34.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Road to Hope convoy stalled at Egyptian border
The Road to Hope humanitarian aid convoy continues its role in the international community’s collective mission to break the illegal siege of Gaza and deliver desperately needed aid to the people of Palestine in Gaza. The convoy comprises 30 vehicles and 101 humanitarian aid workers. Among them are 8 survivors of the Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla, 7 of them were aboard the Mavi Marmara, including Ken O’Keefe who was involved in disarming two Israeli commandos. The convoy has travelled four and a half thousand miles and is currently located at the Libyan / Egyptian border. As it stands the convoy finds itself at a standstill, with direct communication with the outside world being limited, and access to the internet very difficult.
It has always been a central aspect of the Road to Hope convoy that it acts in a non-political, non-confrontational manner. To work with and cooperate with every government in every country through which it travelled. Thus far this approach has rewarded it with exceptional receptions in every nation. All of the North African governments have been extremely accommodating and the people of each nation even more so. We must give special praise to the Libyan government for its constant support; when the convoy have had challenges, including breakdowns of vehicles, the authorities here have provided the means to repair those vehicles and continue our mission.
Ken O’Keefe: “Now we find ourselves in our third day at the Libyan / Egyptian border and we remain hopeful that the land route will be opened to us in the coming days”. The convoy departed from London with the understanding that the land crossing through Egypt had not been closed to it. Convoy leader, Kieran Turner: “One reason for our optimism that we will travel the land route is the fact that the Al Quds convoy, a Libyan convoy also delivering aid to Gaza, is set to travel the land route in the coming days. For several weeks we have hoped to join our convoys and travel together.” However, the convoy is awaiting permission from the Egyptian authorities to pass through Egypt in this way.
Mr. Turner understands that there is a possibility the Egyptian government will deny the convoy the land route, in which case they will have only two acceptable options —
1) To press on via the land border without permission, at which time our only chance of success will be by way of significant international pressure and a reversal of a policy which tacitly supports the illegal siege of Gaza.
2) If the land route is denied the only remaining option is to deliver our aid by sea. This option inherently requires significant increases in the cost of our mission, and importantly, to all subsequent aid missions. The end result of this policy is a reduction in the already limited resources that can be brought to bear for the people of Palestine.
The convoy leadership urge the Egyptian authorities to allow us safe passage to Gaza by land in the coming days, allow the convoy to join the Al Quds convoy, and ultimately increase the “easing” of the blockade which continues to collectively punish the people of Gaza.
Mr. Ken O’Keefe calls on all the supporters of Palestine “to support Road to Hope and the Al Quds convoys by spreading awareness of our missions and encouraging Egyptian cooperation”.

I have for many years understood that we, people of conscience, are the true holders of power in this world. Frustratingly however we have largely relinquished that power and failed to reach our full potential. Our potential to create a better world, a just world. Nonetheless I have conspired with others of like mind to reveal and exercise our true power. In 2002 I initiated the TJP Human Shield Action to Iraq because I knew that the invasion of Iraq had been planned well in advance, that it was part of a ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’ agenda as laid out by the Project For A New American Century.
I knew that protests had no chance of stopping the invasion, and that largely these protests were just a way of making us feel better about the coming mass murder; by being able to say I protested against it. With that understanding I argued that the only viable way to stop the invasion was to conduct a mass migration to Iraq. A migration in which people from around the world, especially western citizens, would position themselves at sites in Iraq that are supposed to be protected by international law, but which are routinely bombed when it is only Iraqi, Palestinian, generally non-white, western lives who will be killed. I felt 10,000 such people could stop the invasion, or at the very least, expose the invasion for what it was from the start, an act of international aggression, a war crime and a crime against humanity.
When our two double-decker buses travelled from London to Baghdad through Turkey, it was ever clear that the people of Turkey also could sense the power of this act, and they were the biggest participants in it. In the end we did not get the numbers required to stop the war, with at least one million Iraqi’s dead as a result, but I remain convinced that it was within our power to prevent the invasion. A massive opportunity lost as far as I am concerned.
In 2007 I joined the Free Gaza Movement with its plan to challenge the blockade of Gaza by travelling to Gaza by sea. From the moment I heard of the plan I knew it could succeed and ultimately I served as a captain on the first attempt. The Israeli government said throughout our preparation that we were no better than pirates and they would treat us as such. They made clear we would not reach Gaza. And still I knew we could succeed. And we did. Two boats with 46 passengers from various countries managed to sail into Gaza on August 23, 2010; this was the first time this had been done in 41 years. The truth is the blockade of Gaza is far more than three years old, and yet we, a small group of conscientious people defied the Israeli machine and celebrated with tens of thousands of Gazans when we arrived that day. We proved that it could be done. We proved that an intelligent plan, with skilled manipulation of the media, could render the full might of the Israeli Navy useless. And I knew then that this was only the tip of the iceberg.
So participating in the Freedom Flotilla is like a family reunion to me. It is my long lost family whose conscience is their guide, who have shed the fear, who act with humanity. But I was especially proud to join IHH and the Turkish elements of the flotilla. I deeply admire the strength and character of the Turkish people, despite your history having stains of injustice, like every nation, you are today from citizen to Prime Minister among the leaders in the cause of humanity and justice.
I remember being asked during the TJP Human Shield Action to Iraq if I was a pacifist, I responded with a quote from Gandhi by saying I am not a passive anything. To the contrary I believe in action, and I also believe in self-defence, 100%, without reservation. I would be incapable of standing by while a tyrant murders my family, and the attack on the Mavi Marmara was like an attack on my Palestinian family. I am proud to have stood shoulder to shoulder with those who refused to let a rogue Israeli military exert their will without a fight. And yes, we fought.
When I was asked, in the event of an Israeli attack on the Mavi Mamara, would I use the camera, or would I defend the ship? I enthusiastically committed to defence of the ship. Although I am also a huge supporter of non-violence, in fact I believe non-violence must always be the first option. Nonetheless I joined the defence of the Mavi Mamara understanding that violence could be used against us and that we may very well be compelled to use violence in self-defence.
I said this straight to Israeli agents, probably of Mossad or Shin Bet, and I say it again now, on the morning of the attack I was directly involved in the disarming of two Israeli Commandos. This was a forcible, non-negotiable, separation of weapons from commandos who had already murdered two brothers that I had seen that day. One brother with a bullet entering dead center in his forehead, in what appeared to be an execution. I knew the commandos were murdering when I removed a 9mm pistol from one of them. I had that gun in my hands and as an ex-US Marine with training in the use of guns it was completely within my power to use that gun on the commando who may have been the murderer of one of my brothers. But that is not what I, nor any other defender of the ship did. I took that weapon away, removed the bullets, proper lead bullets, separated them from the weapon and hid the gun. I did this in the hopes that we would repel the attack and submit this weapon as evidence in a criminal trial against Israeli authorities for mass murder.
I also helped to physically separate one commando from his assault rifle, which another brother apparently threw into the sea. I and hundreds of others know the truth that makes a mockery of the brave and moral Israeli military. We had in our full possession, three completely disarmed and helpless commandos. These boys were at our mercy, they were out of reach of their fellow murderers, inside the ship and surrounded by 100 or more men. I looked into the eyes of all three of these boys and I can tell you they had the fear of God in them. They looked at us as if we were them, and I have no doubt they did not believe there was any way they would survive that day. They looked like frightened children in the face of an abusive father.
But they did not face an enemy as ruthless as they. Instead the woman provided basic first aid, and ultimately they were released, battered and bruised for sure, but alive. Able to live another day. Able to feel the sun over head and the embrace of loved ones. Unlike those they murdered. Despite mourning the loss of our brothers, feeling rage towards these boys, we let them go. The Israeli prostitutes of propaganda can spew all of their disgusting bile all they wish, the commandos are the murderers, we are the defenders, and yet we fought. We fought not just for our lives, not just for our cargo, not just for the people of Palestine, we fought in the name of justice and humanity. We were right to do so, in every way.
While in Israeli custody I, along with everyone else was subjected to endless abuse and flagrant acts of disrespect. Women and elderly were physically and mentally assaulted. Access to food and water and toilets was denied. Dogs were used against us, we ourselves were treated like dogs. We were exposed to direct sun in stress positions while hand cuffed to the point of losing circulation of blood in our hands. We were lied to incessantly, in fact I am awed at the routineness and comfort in their ability to lie, it is remarkable really. We were abused in just about every way imaginable and I myself was beaten and choked to the point of blacking out… and I was beaten again while in my cell.
In all this what I saw more than anything else were cowards… and yet I also see my brothers. Because no matter how vile and wrong the Israeli agents and government are, they are still my brothers and sisters and for now I only have pity for them. Because they are relinquishing the most precious thing a human being has, their humanity.
In conclusion; I would like to challenge every endorser of Gandhi, every person who thinks they understand him, who acknowledges him as one of the great souls of our time (which is just about every western leader), I challenge you in the form of a question. Please explain how we, the defenders of the Mavi Marmara, are not the modern example of Gandhi’s essence? But first read the words of Gandhi himself.
“I do believe that, where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence…. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honour than that she should, in a cowardly manner, become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonour.” – Gandhi
And lastly I have one more challenge. I challenge any critic of merit, publicly, to debate me on a large stage over our actions that day. I would especially love to debate with any Israeli leader who accuses us of wrongdoing, it would be my tremendous pleasure to face off with you. All I saw in Israel was cowards with guns, so I am ripe to see you in a new context. I want to debate with you on the largest stage possible. Take that as an open challenge and let us see just how brave Israeli leaders are.
