My way of giving back is pretty clear for those who see me fairly and I will continue to give what I have to the best of my ability, until the goal of a better world is achieved. Until such time let us never forget that the world is a reflection of our virtues and inadequacies.
If you can help me stay on air at The People’s Voice by allowing me to pay bills and produce quality programs I must thank you in advance. For those who have shared the attached link and supported, thank you very, very much. Until we destroy the financial fraud that is central banking, fractional reserve, debt based money fraud, we will continue to endure the carefully manipulated scarcity that makes noble work either unpaid or little paid, so under these circumstances we must decide what is the best way to invest what little we have. If you feel my Middle East show is on the list of worthy causes then let it be because what I am discussing is that important, not simply because you like me. TJP
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.
For the full video report on the hijacking of the Trade Not Aid Mission and UK Police Collusion watch the video below.
It is Ken O’Keefe back in Gaza. For the last 14, 15 months, I have been dealing with the results of the hijacking of the Trade Not Aid Mission, now I have provided a link to a video on Vimeo which gets into greater detail about this.
But the short version of the story is that I made a massive mistake by trusting some horrible people particularly Catherine Myles. But she was partnered with Saeb Shaath and some others that effectively infiltrated the Trade Not Aid Mission and stole money, donated goods and vehicles, two vehicles including an 18 ton truck that had been filled with donated goods for the Trade Not Aid Mission.
Now, the trade not aid mission is effectively the brand name for a partnership between the two nonprofit companies, social enterprises that I am the Director of. One, Aloha Palestine CIC, a Community Interest Company and the other one, the Samouni Project.
Now, the Samouni project was formed on the back of my relationship with the Samouni family here in Gaza. I formulated the plan for the Samouni Project with the Samouni family. In fact, the Samouni family put together a board that was comprised of all family members and those family members are the ones that gave me the direction to move forward with the formation of the Samouni Project and the carrying out of the objectives. Now, the two main objectives of the Samouni Project were;
- To get the kids the education that they need because after operation Cast lead and the slaughter of the Samouni family by the Israelis, the children obviously were just a little bit traumatized to say the least. This has adversely affected their school and in this sense, they are just like the rest of the kids of Gaza. It is not just a Samouni family, but the Samouni’s have been so incredibly violated and traumatized that these children are suffering. And, one of the things that they are suffering from is lack of ability to concentrate on school and thus they need real special attention—many of them—to even think about concentrating on school again. Well, here we are nearly four years later and they really don’t have that yet. So this was the goal that was set a year and a half ago when I was here with the Samouni family.
- The other objective of the Samouni Project is in line with Aloha Palestine and my goals as a whole which is “Fuck aid”. Aid is not the answer. Aid, okay, in the extreme circumstances where people are literally going to starve to death, yes, you have to do it. But generally, aid is for the aftermath of a natural disaster when you have a hurricane or a tornado or an earthquake or something like that. Then you need send aid because the people clearly in that emergency situation would not have everything they need to survive. But this is not an emergency situation and natural disaster. This blockade of Gaza is now five years plus; it is human created. It is carried out by both the Israelis and definitely under Mubarak it was the Egyptian side, and more importantly for us in the west, it is carried out with the complicity in the cooperation of our corrupt western governments who are taking all our money and giving’em to the banksters and all this sort of stuff. So without our western governments, this blockade of Gaza which is five years plus couldn’t continue and my goal with the Samouni family is to get beyond the blockade to be able to export products that they can produce because they are far worse (off then so many), be able to have them produce their goods, vegetables, chilies, tomatoes, things like this, dehydrate them. I wanted to bring them a dehydrator and use that dehydrator to dehydrate their vegetables and fruits and then we in turn would work to get them out. The plan of this was really that we would guarantee that those things they produced, we would market abroad. People would pay for them. We would pay the Samouni family with those funds and then it would be our task to export them out. So any of the purchasers of the products would have to understand that if we can’t deliver the product, it is because the blockade is still in place.
So, that was the plan with the Samouni family. That is complemented by Aloha Palestine which I formed with Lauren Booth in late 2008 and the whole objective of Aloha Palestine way back in 2008 was trade not aid, to establish a trade route in and out of Gaza so that the people could import and export and basically be able to develop their economy and get back on their own two feet and live a life of dignity. Even just recently here in Gaza, there is an organization set up on the principle of dignity by the youth here and the only way that dignity can be achieved is by the ability to do trade. And, the trade doesn’t sound as sexy and altruistic as aid and charity but it is more important than aid and charity. This is where we as people really need to think about our critical thinking skills. Do we have them or are we continuously being manipulated in the one stupid dead end or another. Aid is not the answer and I am not the only one saying that. It has been said by the Palestinians for a long time. Go watch a video called Donor Opium on youtube, excellent video. It will tell you a lot about how aid is actually insidious and destructive towards the Palestinians who are now per capita the biggest receivers of ‘AID’ in the world.
So that was Samouni project in Aloha Palestine. Now, I fucked up. I trusted the wrong people; they got on the inside. In that position of trust, they breached the trust, they stole vehicles, they stole donated goods, they stole money. Now, I from the beginning, if this had been dealt with properly by the UK police, this could have been sorted. On August 23rd, I submitted a report to the UK police establishing who raised the money for those vehicles. What the purchase of those vehicles was for which I purchased them. The transfer of funds for those vehicles while I was here in Gaza last year to trusted people on the European side back in the UK. The funds were transferred, authorized by me, the purchase of the vehicles authorized by me, the raising of the money by me and those vehicles were registered in the name of the people who I trusted on that end. They were never the legal owners of the vehicles. They were never the legal owners of the donated goods and they certainly were never the legal owners of the donated moneys which I authorized to be put in the Catherine Myles account because I trusted her. This is my fuck up and I apologize to everyone for my screw up as the leader of the mission, I cannot do anything but take responsibility for my fuck up and I fucked up.
Now, what can I do to recuperate that and correct. What did I do? I went to the UK police. I handed them all the evidence to show the ownership of the vehicles. What did the UK police do? Well, they did what the UK government does and that all the western governments are doing. They acted like the corrupt puppet bastards that they are. They didn’t arrest the criminals who provably had shown had stolen vehicles, donated goods and moneys, no, they arrested me. They ‘investigated’ me for five months and then said, “Oh! No further action.” Yeah no shit no further action. Keep in mind, these people had nine hard drives of mine, had every hard drive I had. They had two computers, the only computers I had. They had paper work. They went through my home; they took everything they wanted. They went through my wife’s underwear drawer. They went through everything in my house. Everything that might have established any kind of criminal activity on my behalf, they had access to it and they had it for five fucking months. I had to deal with that crap. I didn’t have any representation for a while and finally I did get a defense attorney, great man, thank you so much Simon Natas and ultimately the police dropped their farcical bullshit investigation and then they said, “Oh, the vehicles, it is a civil matter.” I then had to file a civil case to recover stolen vehicles which is the 18 ton truck and mini bus converted into the mobile office. Now, that is now still in process and the court system, another story but nonetheless, it looks like I should be recovering in the court system because quite frankly there is no evidence on the side of the criminals to defend what they have done.
I provided that initial report. That was about 108 pages, that initial report. I then supplied a year later, I supplied another 106 page report on the stealing of the vehicles, the stealing of the moneys, the stealing of the donated goods. I handed that over to the police. Who do you turn it over to? I handed it over to the UK police. That was three months ago, haven’t heard back from them and I am talking about bank transfers, witness statements, emails, screenshots, all of it establishing that moneys were taken by Catherine Myles and moneys were transferred into her account and that those moneys are unaccounted for, that they have been stolen based on a principle of some collective and some bullshit group that somehow claims to have taken over the Trade Not Aid mission which they clearly did not. The UK police have dishonored themselves big time. FUCK the UK police that are at the top levels who are corrupt. I don’t fear you, I don’t give a shit what you do. I know who you are and plenty of people know who you are. Just like the UK government. I don’t care what you think you are going to do to me.
Anyway, I have done everything I could to affect legal remedy. But we don’t live in a lawful society. We don’t live with law. Law is violated. Tony Blair’s and George Bush’s, what happens to them? They kill people, what, a million, two million in Iraq, what happens to them? Nothing, there is no law. So the law did not help me. I was foolish to think that they would have. But nonetheless, I have supplied all the evidence to so called legal authorities in the UK; they have done nothing. Now in September just last month, I also compiled a 336 (page) report. This was the conclusive report of everything that happened with the Trade Not Aid Mission. Going back to the formation of Aloha Palestine, all the way through to the present day, this is a conclusive detailed report with every single piece of evidence to establish that those that hijacked the Trade Not Aid Mission, are in fact nothing more than common criminals and thieves. I have established with the evidence that clearly Catherine Myles in particular has committed fraud, she has committed theft. She has committed blackmail and blatantly, fourth, perverted the course of justice. She perverted the course of justice by lying on record to the police saying that she thought that I was the head of a charity, that I had defrauded her and others into thinking that I was a head of a charity and so therefore, they went out to solicit donations for a nonexistent charity. This is bullshit.
Every single thing I have ever said publically, in email privately, has always made clear. I am actually not a fan of charity. Charities are often times the means to infiltrate places like Palestine with over paid NGOs that can buy out the best of the private sector and ultimately get the agenda of the outside powers, the colonial imperial powers into lands like Palestine. I am not a fan of charity. I wouldn’t want to live on charity. I want equality. I want justice and in a just environment, if we partner together, we will be able to provide for ourselves. Fuck charity.
So the idea I ever said that I was the head of a charity is ridiculous. Not only that, but I actually went to Sheikhs, more than one because there is something called Zakat. Muslims are honor bound if they have the means to give a certain amount of their money to charity each year. Now, because my nonprofit companies are not technically a charity, I went to sheikhs, and I asked them listen, is this possible that it would qualify—the zakat—that it would qualify for charity? And effectively, the answer was no. This was very frustrating to me because I knew I couldn’t say that it would qualified as zakat. I wanted to make sure and I did make sure by asking sheikhs, respected sheikhs about this. So I have never once represented myself as the head of a charity. The police could have easily verified that. They could have asked me questions and they could have shown some evidence. Where is the evidence? There is no evidence. And that’s why now, I have got the services of a law firm in London that is representing me in a complaint against the UK police and I can tell you what, they have taken this case free of charge; it is costing me nothing. You know why they are taking the case? Because I have got the fucking police by the balls, that ‘s why, because they have violated my rights. They unlawfully arrested me. They falsely imprisoned me. They assaulted me by taking my DNA and they violated my rights in the European Convention on Human Rights on two different levels.
So all the proof is there, just waiting for the police to give me through, my law firm, to give us all the information that they used to justify my arrest which I can’t wait for that because you know what they is going to do? That is going to show that Catherine Myles once again lied blatantly, perverted the course of justice.
What are the UK police going to do then? Are they going to arrest Catherine Myles? I don’t think so. You know why? Because I believe she is definitely an asset of so called intelligence agencies or perhaps special branch. If not, its impossible to explain why are the UK police protecting this criminal? Why? What is the reason for this? I have the proof. I have submitted some of that proof online. You can look at it if you want.
And for you idiots out there that continue to believe in lives of these criminals, who are you? What have you done?
So, I am here in Gaza, amongst the millions of lies that have been told about me over the last 14 months, especially by Catherine Myles once again. One, I am not welcome. I am barred from Gaza. Here I am, I am in Gaza.
That screen shot will be put up for you to see as well. I am barred from Gaza am I? Well I’m here! I am also been suspected of luring young women into my apartment in Gaza and Hamas nearly arrested me twice. Is that right? Well here I am again. Why aren’t they arresting me?
Not only that, but I have come to Gaza for two primary reasons. Two:
- To apologize to the Samouni family directly. Especially, to the kids. I love those kids and I am so sorry for what I have done to them by my failure to have the right people who can be trusted inside the Trade Not Aid Mission. I have done that now and I have come and I have explained to them my perspective and I have also submitted to them the evidence that I am talking to you about tonight.
- The other reason was to go to the government here. And I have done that now. I have gone to the Minister of Interior and I have gone to the Minister of Justice and I have submitted 4 reports—the ones I have just told you about—the initial report that I wrote in August of 2011, the 80 pages, excuse me it was 80 pages of evidence to the UK police in July of 2012 establishing the fraudster, the criminal, the hijacker, the absolute criminal, Catherine Myles with evidence, verifiable evidence I gave to the UK police in July of 2012. I then have the chronological report—336 pages of it—absolutely conclusive establishing everything that the UK police would need to arrest the right people. And lastly, the complaint filed on my behalf by law firm in London. I have handed all that over. All of that has been handed over to the officials here.
I have made it very clear to the government here in Gaza. I am here, I am ready to answer any question at all. In fact, I want to answer any question and I would like to see any evidence, any evidence that indicts me of anything not only illegal but immoral. Show it to me; I am ready for it. And if there is any legitimate evidence against me, which there isn’t but if there is, let’s go! Let’s go! I am here ready to face it.
So, I don’t consider the UK government anything but a bunch of corrupt bastards quite frankly and their little quisling underlings or the UK police. Which, let’s make no mistake as we get closer to the third world war are going to be called on to do horrible things to the UK people. So, I hope you do the right thing, the good people within the UK police.
I don’t believe the government here in Gaza is as corrupt as you are in the UK. And I have handed over all the evidence to the officials here and I have requested that they take all the evidence they have and if there is sufficient evidence to indict me of anything to charge me, I will come back to Gaza. I am coming back to Gaza because I would not be able to stay here too long this time around. But I am here if any charges need to be leveled. And I am coming back as well and here is my open proposal to Catherine Myles:
Catherine Myles, you still maintain possession of stolen vehicles, donated goods and also at least £20,000 of donated money went into your account all verifiable. You say I stole it, show the proof. How did I get money put into your account? Why was I so stupid as to allow it to be put into your account is really the question for me. But nonetheless, me being as stupid as I was, how did I get my hands on money put into your account because you are going to have to show somehow that it was put into my hands. You can’t do that because you stole it. Now, all evidence is there; it’s all there. Catherine Myles, I have found the funds for you to come to Gaza. We will pay for you to go to Gaza. I will pay for your tickets from the UK to Cairo and then your taxi fare to Gaza and your accommodation in Gaza and your return taxi fare back Cairo, back to the UK. You have a paid, PAID trip to Gaza. You come down to Gaza and all those things that you have said about me, everything you have said about me. I am a white supremacist, I am a Nazi, I am a fraudster. My wife is worse than me. My children are illegitimate.
All of these lies that you have told, all of them, include accusations that I have stolen money and that I have somehow dishonored myself and harmed the Palestinian cause. You bring all your evidence to Gaza and you face the authorities here in Gaza. If you are not willing to do that, now, today, with the Simouni family coming out and making the statement calling on you, demanding you return all of the items back to me. If you don’t do that, let the whole world know and every single person who cares about Palestine, let them all know you have stolen directly from Palestine. You have stolen directly from the Simouni family and even after the Simouni family have demanded that you return all the stolen property back to me as their friend, as their brother, as their trusted partner. If you refuse to do that, let the wrath of the Palestinian Solidarity Movement come to you. Let it come to you. And Saeb Shaath, as a Palestinian, I suggest you tell Catherine Myles to return the stolen goods now as well.
That is my report from Gaza. I look forward to seeing what happens in the near future but let us make no mistake, NO mistake, no matter how corrupt, no matter how evil, no matter how servile and disgusting, there will be justice in this world, there will be justice in Palestine. And we will never give up and you can make damn sure that I will never give up. I will die with my honor and integrity and I believe that we will see Palestine free in the not too distant future.
Full video report of the hijacking of Trade Not Aid Mission
When I came to Gaza in November 2011 I planned to stay for 2 months maximum, at least that was the deal I made with my pregnant wife. But as happens Palestine has a way of seducing you, and in my case the Egyptian authorities have a way of imprisoning you, so my stay lasted 6 months rather than 2. In turn I ended up missing the birth of our second child.
Although I planned to film 30 separate family profiles here in Gaza, to have these families tell their story directly to a western audience, I did not plan to meet the Samouni family as their story had been told many times before. Fate had other plans however and this meeting was arranged without my knowledge.
It is ironic how unplanned events often impact your life far more than those that are planned. Before you know it you are taken down a path of which the universe, God, some unknowable force is clearly in charge, we become but a passenger. Meeting the Samouni family has been like that, it has caused a chain reaction of events that has dominated my life for the last 18 months. In that time I have known the greatest of joy, the joy of receiving a child’s smile upon your return for instance. I cannot guess at the amount of smiles reciprocated with the Samouni kids and yet the joy it produces never diminishes.
In the last 18 months I have also known rage, primarily from the betrayal of those I trusted. To trust is to love, it is expose one’s underbelly in the interest of union. It is the cornerstone of partnership, it is essential for any significant progress in effecting a better world. Those that are afraid to trust, to love, will never know the joy of love, and my willingness to trust has been one of the greatest sources of the immense blessings I have known. I have no regrets, even with the betrayals.
So the price one inevitably pays for misplaced trust is to be praised one day, and then slandered with the most filthy lies the next. This is the tactic of infiltration, get inside, develop trust, establish an apparently credible basis to defame the target, then attack. For me this extends not just about me, but of my wife, my mother and even my children who have been called “illegitimate”. I have even seen Palestinians create a Facebook page designed purely for the purpose of defaming me (a blatant violation of Facebook’s duplicitous, Israel slanted policies). I have been unlawfully arrested by the UK police, my family home has been violated and my property stolen by thieves in uniform. And yet I am grateful for it all because it is in these greatest of challenges, the injustices, that one finds the greatest opportunities to grow, to become wiser and stronger.
I am grateful because through the joy and through the hardship I have never lost sight of how blessed I am. When I look back at my life there is such richness in the stories I have accumulated and the friendships I have developed. I have thought with my heart more than with my head and in a world of collective insanity I realised long ago that popularity and approval is not what a content and honourable life generally provides, in fact it almost never does. The path of popularity is not for me, it is self-respect, service to life, commitment to truth and justice that I am committed to. The hardship, ridicule and slander is all part of the path and ultimately can only be overcome by steadfastness and love, love of truth, love of justice, and ultimately love of peace.
Indeed I have taken the path less travelled by and without doubt this has made all the difference. This path has lead me back to Gaza, and as potentially dangerous as this path is it doesn’t really matter, if my mortal life ends today I will leave behind an example of what blessings await those that “think” with their heart and more importantly, act in accord with their heart.
So I am back in Gaza, and I am back with the Samouni family. What we have shared is what we shared before, love. If the full truth be known about all that has been employed to tear or relationship apart it could be made into a movie. Even a prominent human rights organisation has been advising the Samouni family to divorce themselves of me because I was all that I was accused of being by the slanderers. What makes this shocking is that this “human rights” organisation indicted me based on one source and one source alone, Facebook!
This organisation went even further to pressure the Samouni family to press charges against me. When the family asked for one simple thing, evidence, this organisation refused. Indeed this has been the judge of me for many, Facebook. What does this say about some of the so-called “friends” of Palestine, that they are so incredibly stupid as to validate a known CIA/Zionist tool as a source to crucify one of Palestine’s most easily verified allies?
What I find myself saying more and more about the plight of the Palestinians is, “with friends like these, who needs enemies.”
Between the human rights organisation and the corrupt UK police and court system and Zionist agents online and importantly, the idiots who give credence to all of the above, it is safe to say that the only thing that has truly protected me is integrity. And the only thing that will save the Samouni Project and the educational program it entails is steadfastness. And even if these poor, poor human beings who wish otherwise were to succeed, I will die with my integrity as it is not subject to the whims of a human society that is, literally, collectively insane to the point that we remain on the brink of the human caused end of the world as we know it.
But make no mistake at all, those who have instigated baseless slander against me, those that have stolen resources for the Samouni Project, Aloha Palestine, Trade Not Aid, those that have been stupid enough to propagate lies without any critical thought, have not attacked me primarily, they have attacked Palestine and in particular, the Samouni family. A massive amount of effort has been invested in destroying the trust between myself and the Samouni family, it has not worked. I remain a loved member of this family and I love this family as if they were my blood.
In the next few days prepare to feel the joy I am feeling with me, as something beautiful is about to happen here in Gaza.
Today is day 1 of my 30-day hunger strike in solidarity with the Palestinian hunger strikers who will, within days if not hours from now, die for refusing to accept the unacceptable if we do not unite in their defense.
To those who say ‘Israel does not care what we do, they are merciless’; I say to you that you have fallen into a trap of cynicism that ultimately breeds powerlessness. The entire system of tyranny as we know it requires such thinking to be maintained. But make no mistake, when the people begin to exercise the knowledge and corresponding action that is consistent with our real power, the tyrants will cower and slither and beg for a mercy that they were never willing to extend themselves. Truly the tables will be turned and I for one have no interest in vengeance, it is justice I seek.
The world is the way it is because tyrannical powers have managed to fool and manipulate us on multiple levels. First and foremost is the false division of humanity along the lines of race, religion, sectarianism, nationalism, gender, etc. Once divided we can be controlled, and in this state we feel powerless… and this is all by design.
Israel is a primary player in this scheme with its major contribution being that of perpetuating and maintaining perpetual conflict, both regionally and globally. It manages this through its status as a sort of Rothschild’s fiefdom with its seemingly infinite supply of fraudulent fiat currencies that allow it buy anyone who can be bought. The US Congress is the perfect example of a government that is bought and paid for under this inherently corrupt system. Indeed the corrupt are rewarded while the virtuous are punished in every way. In this way, Israel, a tiny state, has the facade of immense power when in truth it is a house of cards built on fraud. This is how, in the simplest terms, Israel has managed to maintain an ultimately untenable position for decades now, but it will not last.
Over the decades however this game worked very well, yet it has always relied on people being divided and that is why so much energy and resources are poured into keeping us in this state of ignorance and division. If the playing field were fair Israel could never have lasted this long. But the privately controlled, fractional reserve fiat currency fraud system, the same system leading to ‘austerity’ and so forth, is in its dying days. And the death of that system, symbolic of the ‘head of the snake’, means the unbridled power of Israel and the get out of jail free card it has owned for decades is soon to be no more.
The system is much weaker and vulnerable then people realise. It has more than one Achilles Heel; it has major chinks in its armor and we need only to realise our power to see just how weak this tyrannical system is.
So let us compare the now with the potential of tomorrow. When it comes to the Palestinian prisoners, those who are currently rotting away in dungeons, they and their families are violated in the most obscene of ways as a matter of course. I have personally met dozens and dozens of Palestinian prisoners from the West Bank and Gaza and I can tell you that every last one of them was/is tortured. There is no time in Israeli prisons for a Palestinian resister without torture; so let there be no mistake, this is the norm.
If a prisoner complains about being kept in isolation for months or even years what do you think is done about it? In all likelihood the torture will be increased and extended even further. When a prisoner complains about being kept without charge for months and often years with little to no access to family or legal representation, as is the case with Hassan Safadi, Ayman Sharawna and Samer Al-Barq and so many others, what happens? Nothing, indeed Israel simply increases the pain and suffering as they are doing at this very moment by shackling these gravely ill hunger strikers and even banging their heads against prison bars and more.
So on an individual level the prisoners are to a large degree powerless, they are expendable sub-humans in the eyes of the Israeli power structure and anything can be done to them for they might as well be dogs in the eyes of a transparently racist, Jewish supremacist state and its managers. Anyone who takes exception to hearing of the Jewish supremacism that is behind the torture and mass murder of Palestinians is not serious about the truth. I do not indict all Jews for the actions of the Jewish state, but the fact that people consider themselves ‘chosen’ and by default others un-chosen, is in my opinion highly offensive and dangerous on its own. Combine such a mentality with the power and backing the Jewish state enjoys and you see what we have today, a world on the brink of World War III, being lead by a state that feels it is justified in virtually everything it does. Whether it is the slaughter of the Samouni family in Operation Cast Lead or the murder/execution of 9 humanitarian aid volunteers aboard the Mavi Marmara or countless other hideous crimes, the supremacist ideology inherent in a Jewish supremacist state makes all such actions not only defensible, but ordained by God himself. That is what the Palestinians are facing, especially the thousands of prisoners, a rabid form of racism and potentially endless imprisonment mixed with a continuous dose of torture and isolation.
And lest I be accused of that tired old smear of ‘anti-Semitism’, my wife and children are Semitic.
And beyond that, I remain ashamed and disgusted with the conduct of my birth nation, the so-called United States of America. Without question this nation rightfully holds the title of being ‘The greatest terrorist state of all-time.’ Indeed Israel and America and Britain are one and the same and the powers behind them could care less about the people of any of these nations. In my opinion Judaism is simply food for the Jewish masses, fostering a manipulated Jewish identity politics in which the eternal victim psychosis is at its core. But those supposedly at the top of the Jewish pyramid, like the Rothschilds for instance, can and have used ‘Jewish’ people and even financed Hitler for their own personal gain.
George Bush the ‘Christian’ and his War on Terror “crusade” is another example of religion being used to falsely unite people behind a self-destructive ideology and course of action.
Jews and Christians and Muslims are all being manipulated in this way and for the sake of all humanity we should do all that we can to enlighten those being duped in this way. If your religion breeds anything but love and respect for your fellow human beings then it is a false religion, it is nothing more than a tool of the tyrants to maintain their tyranny. Nothing exemplifies this more than ideologies wedded to any form of supremacism.
Getting back to my point about our true power as people united. I look at what happened early in 2012 when over half of the Palestinian prisoners committed to a united hunger strike. What happened was the pressure on Israel became such that it was compelled to do something that it never had any interest in doing. There was no choice in this, it was compelled to do so and this fact alone reveals the power of united action, even among those imprisoned. The level of outrage both within and outside Palestine began to boil. The true reality of Israel, not the bogus PR image force fed to the world by the prostitutes of propaganda in the MSM (mainstream media) was being dangerously exposed.
I say it again; people make a massive mistake believing and saying ‘Israel does not care what anybody thinks’. If that were true then why do Jewish Zionists put so much effort into propaganda? Why does Jewish controlled Hollywood constantly portray Arabs as violent, ignorant buffoons and Jewish characters as sensitive, intelligent and likeable? Think for yourself and you will know why.
It is an obvious manipulation for people to think the Jewish State of Israel is unconcerned with its image; to the contrary, its ability to carry on is reliant upon ignorance among the human population, in particular the Western population. Take away the lies and propaganda and see a naked, exposed Israel and you see the end of this tyrannical machine just like the racist Apartheid regime before it.
The CIA of all sources effectively stated in a 2009 report that ‘Israel will fall within 20 years’. Why do you reckon the CIA would say such a thing? I will tell you why, because Israel’s position becomes completely untenable when the truth be known and the truth will not be suppressed much longer; no matter how much propaganda the prostitutes pump out. And united, the hunger strikers of Palestine can compel exposure of the truth like nothing else. The Palestinian hunger strikers united are more powerful than Israel itself. This does not mean that some will not die, as many Palestinians continue to die every day, just as the beloved Bobby Sands and many other Irishmen died fighting British tyranny with hunger strikes. But in the end, a people united and relatively fearless have the power to achieve whatever they set their mind to, when their cause is just that is. And the cause of Palestine is synonymous with justice.
I have not decided to end my life by committing to 30 days on hunger strike; I have merely decided to express my solidarity with those in Palestine who do risk their lives with open-ended hunger strikes. I do not want sympathy or concern for whatever discomfort I may feel in this period, I want people all around the world to realise that we the people, united, can achieve anything we set our minds to. With discipline, strength and determination we are the true power. In Palestine the absolute end of solitary confinement, administrative detention and denial of access to family and legal representation must end immediately. If not, then Israel must be made to pay the price in the form of being laid bare, naked for the entire world to see, as she exists today and she has been since her birth, a racist, violent state built on the back of Jewish supremacism and terrorism.
Let us as human beings reject any and all forms of supremacism. Indeed a sane world, a world built on truth and justice, requires the end of any form of supremacism. Whether it be Jewish or American or Nazi supremacism is not the issue, each is offensive and dangerous and unacceptable.
We can and must celebrate our differences if we want a better world, but to be pitted against each other and falsely divided is to be our own prison keepers. It is stupid and ultimately it will be self-destructive. We are all members of one human family and to my Jewish brothers and sisters, I truly want what is best for you. I want for you what I want for myself, but I will not pander to the racism and supremacism that is seemingly inherent in the so-called Jewish state. And what that state is doing as the ‘Jewish state’ imparts a great responsibility upon you, whether you wanted it or not.
Whoever is part of a group that feels better than or superior to others is an indoctrinated fool and as an ex-US Marine I must include myself as one that was once within such a group. The American people have been purposely infected with the idea of their ‘greatness’ and it was in that context that America has committed some of the most hideous crimes in history. Hiroshima being beyond insane and Nagasaki being downright sadistic in its undeniable lack of necessity.
Let us face the truth and embrace it, we are all part of one human family and if indeed there are ‘others’ among us, i.e. those of otherworldly origins, even they are part of the family of life and if they do exist and they can adopt a sane perspective, great, if they cannot, then like every human tyrant we face we must expose them for who they are and defeat them with that most powerful weapon of all, truth.
These Palestinian hunger strikers are mothers, daughters, fathers and sons, they are our brothers and sisters and we should be willing to do for them what we would for our own blood brothers and sisters. It is in this context that I have heeded the call of the hunger striker families and if this moves you similarly then now is the time for you to push yourself and act in the boldest, most effective way possible. If we succeed these brothers will survive, they will be the fathers and sons and brothers they are meant to be. If we fail these brothers will pass to the next realm and if that be the case we must make sure that they become the Bobby Sands of Palestine and the process of justice for Palestine is only accelerated.
I myself want them to live, I want them and all the other political prisoners of Palestine and beyond to taste the sweetness of freedom, the warmth of the sun and the touch of their loved ones. I know that I have not done as much as I could for them over the last few weeks and I can only hope that what I do now can be a part of preserving their lives. I want them to live and serve as an inspiration like brothers Khader Adnan, Thaer Halahleh, Akram Rikhawi, Mahmoud Sarsak and sister Hana Shalabi.
If we as people support the hunger strikers as we are capable they will live, and justice will come to Palestine sooner rather than later. And on that day of justice all just minded people will feel a joy unlike any other. Indeed the way of Palestine is the way of the world.
So let us not fall victim to the cynic’s perspective, which is in reality an impregnation of the tyrant’s psychopathic values into the psyche of a whole and healthy human being. Let us reject this, let us be whole. As my dear brother Vittorio Arrigoni used to say, “Stay Human”.
Today we are unwittingly our own prison keepers, but renounce the self-destructive ideologies of the psychopaths and truth and justice becomes inevitable.
Absolute love and respect to all the hunger strikers and their families and all who refuse to accept the unacceptable by acting in accord with their conscience. When it comes to the people of our world who inspire me, you are top of the list.

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.
TONIGHT! – I will be on ‘The Ugly Truth’ Radio Program with Mark Glenn – Program starts at 11pm London time (tonight) in what will surely be a no holds barred conversation about truth and justice. If you do not know Mark, you should. He is a courageous man who refuses to bow to tyranny and is spreading the truth without compromise. We had a conversation today discussing tonights talk and I can assure you it will be one to listen to. There is an opportunity to call in as well so if you have a question for either of us, do call in. We will be discussing the Israeli whitewash ‘investigation’ into the Samouni family slaughter. Here is the promo info as found at Mark’s website;
“When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess and casts out the many peoples living there, you shall then slaughter them all and utterly destroy them…You shall make no agreements with them nor show them any mercy…You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people unto the LORD thy God and He has chosen you to be a special people above all others upon the face of the earth…”
–Book of Deuteronomy, 7:1-8
Israel’s decision NOT to investigate the slaughter of an entire Palestinian family–the Samounis–during Operation Cast Lead–An abberation?
The Palestinians, as alleged by political, religious and even secular leaders within Israel are NOT HUMAN, according to the dictates of Judaism, a religion characterized by Thomas Jefferson as ‘depraved’.
We are honored to be joined live from London by Ken O’Keefe, who spent a considerable amount of time with the surviving members of the Samouni family to discuss this and other relevant items.
Program begins at 6 pm eastern (Washington D.C., New York) and airs live at– http://www.justin.tv/theuglytruthradioprogram
