The enormous harm and costs affecting the people of the United
States arising from attacks upon American targets have as their initial
catalyst the brutal actions of Israel, and the support, funding, and arming of
Israel by the United States, that have given tacit approval of Israel's
arrogance and brutality.
The people that the United States call "terrorists"
admit that Israel's arrogance and brutality, and U.S. enabling of it, is the
primary reason why so many people want to kill Americans. The following
information is provided to show how the actions of the government of Israel—and
the actions of most U.S. politicians acting as shills for Israel—are the most
direct causes for the terrorist-related harm suffered by the American people and
the United States as a nation.

Long history of Israel attacks and murders
of Palestinians, made possible by the funding, arming, and support of U.S.
politicians, and the ignorance or indifference by the American public:
for Terrorist Attacks on U.S. Targets
People from multiple nations, outraged by the joint Israeli-U.S.
brutality upon the Palestinians, changed from being friends of the United States
to what the United States now calls terrorists and the outraged people call
freedom fighters. Despite the fact that decades of continuing terrorist attacks
continue as U.S. politicians became proxies for Israel's militant Zionists, the
American public remains unaware of the relationship.
American public remained complacent abut their politicians continuing pandering
to Israel's militant Zionist leaders. This blind indifference continued despite
the fact that Israel brutality against the Palestinians—made
possible by the actions of America's politicians—was
the initial and continuing reason for people throughout the Middle East and
Africa attacking U.S. interests.
Dumbed down by U.S. media, and obsessed with sports, Lady Gaga,
and other trivia, they allowed their own politicians to keep putting fuel on the
fire inflaming hatred for Americans.

Deceived by pandering U.S. politicians and

Toward U.S. National Interests
This internet page, as with the many others, provide information
to the uninformed or unresponsive American people showing how Israel's
thumb-to-the-nose conduct continues to gravely, sometimes catastrophically,
affect the lives of the American people, and constitute the catalyst for deadly
hatred for Americans. First, a first highlights on the issues:
Conduct of Israel politicians—and
the subservient U.S. politicians—have
been the initial and continuing catalyst for the millions of people hating
and wanting to kill Americans. (Note:
this writer was an
airline captain flying throughout the Middle East when people throughout
that area liked Americans. This attitude changed with American politicians
funding, arming, and supporting the brutalities upon the people of the land
that Israel invaded.)
Israel politicians—with the
complicity of U.S. politicians, some out of fear of retaliation by
Israel's shills in the United States—continue
to make fools of the uninformed and gullible American people. No better
example of this is the continued building of hundreds of homes and
businesses on the land Israel invaded in 1967, showing Israel has no
intention of retreating from the seized land.
President Barack Obama—cannot give
Israel an ultimatum to vacate the seized land, as powerful Israel interests
would promptly start a subversive campaign to undermine any U.S. politicians
that attempted to finally halt Israel's subversion of U.S. interests. The
American people will continue to pay the sometimes deadly consequences.
People of the United States have been given the shaft by their politicians
for years, in this area, and the many other areas described at this site
that are totally off the radar of most Americans obsessed with trivia and to
whom reading of these matters and showing the most basic outrage are beyond
In November 2010, Israel announced building an additional
2000 housing units in the occupied land. President Obama weakly objected,
and Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, contemptuously responded,
"Israel sees no connection between the peace process and planning and
building policy in Jerusalem." Although an illiterate person with street
smarts could recognize that Israel would not continue building thousands of
permanent housing units in the seized territory if they had any intention of
leaving, as would be required in any peace treaty, U.S. politicians and the
American public lacked the courage to respond.
Israel politicians know that their conduct continues to inflame
people throughout the Middle East to attack U.S. targets that they see as
responsible for the harm being inflicted upon the Palestinians. U.S. calls
them terrorists, while they are called patriots by the victims of Israeli
and U.S. actions. As with so many other attacks upon the American people by
people in their own government, the uninformed and naive American public
remained indifferent, despite the resulting harm they suffer.
This incredible naïveté to this go-to-hell Israel attitude and
cowardice of U.S. politicians and the American public is worsened by
the billions of dollars of U.S. taxpayers money, authorized by U.S.
politicians, that has been sent to Israel over the years. According to
Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, the United States had
given in direct U.S. aid to Israel over 115 billion dollars, plus
many billions more hidden in U.S. Department of Defense, CIA, and other
budgets that are easily hidden. Only in the United States could such a

withdrawal of forces from the occupied land by refusing to make any exchange

Biggest Hoax Played On
Palestinians and U.S. Public
The most blatant hoax played upon the American people by U.S.
politicians pandering the Israel's militant Zionist leaders is the argument that
only negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians can solve the Palestine
problem. The perpetrators of this hoax know that the Zionist leaders of Israel
would never agree on vacating the vast areas of Palestine on which they have
built permanent settlements, or vacate the old city of Jerusalem. It is a cruel
hoax played by the powerful United States and Israel upon the brutalized people
For Americans, this hoax is not merely academic. The pandering by
U.S. politicians to the brutal Zionist occupation of Palestine was the initial,,
and continuing basis for many of the retaliatory "terrorist" attacks upon U.S.
Terrorists—or Freedom Fighters
To the people affected by the actions ordered by U.S.
politicians, such as supporting the brutal acts of the invading and occupying
Israelis, the attacks upon U.S. targets brings up the saying, “One man's
terrorist is another man's freedom fighter”
and Most U.S. Media Protecting
Israel Government's Deliberate Murder of
Personnel During Repeated Attacks
Forty years ago, on June 8, 1967, one of the most
brutal attacks upon a ship of the United States Navy occurred, while
U.S. politicians barred other navy ships to come to the rescue of the sailors
being killed during repeated attacks by Israel ships and planes. Fear of
retaliation, U.S. politicians and U.S. media kept this information from the
American public. Understanding those events could help Americans understand one
of the countless forms in which they are brutalized by those in control of the
U.S. sailors had intercepted Israeli radio
communications relating to a planned attack on Syria that occurred
the following day, and Israel felt the Americans would expose the
sneak attack. The attack on a U.S. navy ship was to prevent
revealing the intended attack upon Syria.
As Israeli fighter planes approached the Liberty,
the pilots radioed and protested to their base, “It’s an American
ship!” Tel Aviv disregarded the pilot’s protests and ordered the
fighters to attack. The brutal and bloody assault continued for
almost half an hour, during which time missiles, napalm, and
torpedoes were used to kill thirty-four U.S. Navy men and injuring
During the several hours of repeated attacks, the U.S. Navy ship
sustained 821 holes from shells fired into the ship by the fleet of
Israel aircraft and surface vessels. Today, while we need U.S. military personnel to serve
as cannon-fodder for the arrogant and reckless actions of U.S.
politicians, it is time to again try to inform as many people as
possible and seek to find some outrage among them.
The hours of continual attacks were perpetrated upon
the U.S.S. Liberty by waves of Israel planes and gunboats, 13
nautical miles off the Sinai Peninsula. Other U.S. navy ships were
kept from defending the ship, sacrificing many of the sailors.
Oddly, the only ship that came to the defense of the U.S.S. Liberty
was a Russian guided-missile destroyer. But to maintain the cold war
culture, U.S. politicians ordered the U.S.S. Liberty to reject the
help the Russian vessel offered. Their help rejected, the Russian
vessel stayed nearby, ready to rescue any sailors in the sea.
To get realistic about the consequences, U.S.
military personnel were cremated alive, dismembered alive, by the
wave after wave of Israeli aircraft and surface vessels. The United
States politicians even denied the victims the benefit of being
U.S. media, out of deference to the powerful Israeli
lobbies, and members of Congress, fearful of an attack upon their
reelection funded by the same powerful Israeli lobbies, covered up
for the murderous attacks and said nothing about the heroic actions
by the U.S. military personnel.
The United States denial of defense, the protection
by U.S. politicians and media people of Israel, were shameful acts
and contempt for the horrendous sufferings of U.S. navy personnel.
The heroic actions of the entire crew were denied recognition and
respect, and their place in history. The unpublicized reference to the attack omitted
reference to the identify of the attackers, referring only top
“foreign” aircraft and vessels.
Remember, it is the same Israel's whose conduct gave
birth to the Middle East problems in which the United States is now
heavily engaged in what could be a survival for the U.S. itself. Thanks to the standard naiveté of the
American public and
lack of inquisitiveness, virtually all the guilty joined together to spin
the truth to the American people. The Israeli government, the
Anti-Defamation League, White House politicians, and media people, stated
the hours of attacks upon U.S. military personnel were simply, an accident!
For the public to acknowledge they were being duped required courage to show

Francisco Chronicle Revealed High-Level Israeli Control
Over the Repeated Murders of U.S. Navy Personnel
An article in the San Francisco Chronicle
(March 27, 2002) referred to the fear of U.S. politicians from the
powerful Jewish influence in the United States:
Sharon’s hard line was an unprecedented slap at the
Bush administration. U.S. officials’ response was merely to turn the
other cheek, indicating they are unwilling to criticize Sharon. If
Sharon can get away with so publicly defying the United States,
which gives Israel $2.8 billion per year in military and economic
aid, then Arab cooperation with the war on terrorism may weaken, and
the Arab world’s opposition to any future U.S. attack on Iraq will
Israel has used military jets to fire missiles and
drop bombs into heavily occupied areas in the West Bank, killing
many innocent people. They have used military weapons, furnished by
the United States, to kill thousands of Palestinians. In one such
example, on July 22, 2002, an Israel jet fighter fired a missile
into a highly concentrated civilian area during the night, killing a
Hamas leader, his wife and family, and 13 other children. Israel,
and many “news” reporters in the United States (including Dennis
Ross) supported the slaughter.
Most Americans know very little about this attack and the
contempt held by the people perpetrating the acts and U.S.
politicians for the murdered U.S. military personnel. That attack
resulted in the highest per capita casualties since World War II, 70
percent of the ship’s 294 sailors sustaining major injuries and
deaths. It was the costliest hostile action since World War
II. Killed, 34; wounded, 172.
Israelis didn’t limit their assassinations to Arabs.
Israeli forces deliberately machine-gunned and bombed a virtually
unarmed U.S. Navy communication ship, the U.S.S. Liberty, killing several dozen U.S.
sailors. (June 8, 1967) The Liberty carried clear markings
indicating it to be an American ship, and Israel knew that. The
attack, occurring off the coast of Lebanon.
U.S.S. Liberty , Riddled by
Israeli Fighter Planes and ships
that arrogant Israelis could deliberately murder that many U.S. navy
personnel, the U.S. media and U.S. politicians ignore the crimes, and the
U.S. public remain indifferent, is an indictment of the entire culture in
the United States.
Withheld from American Public
The American public never learned the truth. Even
White House officials acted to protect Israel , publicly accepting
Israel’s apology that the attack was an accident. American military
personnel were equally expendable in Vietnam and other ventures by
the politicians in the White House, including Iraq.
Israel asserted that they thought the Liberty
was another ship, the El Quseir. But that Egyptian supply
ship was in Alexandria, a fact known to Israel. The ugly truth of
the deliberate killing of U.S. military personnel by Israel was
shown through radio messages intercepted by the American embassy in
Beirut, which were slowly being known.
In 1991, former U.S. Ambassador, Dwight Porter,
revealed the radio communications intercepted by his office in
Lebanon on that fateful day in 1967, revealing that Israeli
commanders knew the ship was an American ship and that they
knew they were killing American sailors.
Porter’s revelations were supported by Seth Mintz,
major in Israel‘s IDF,
who was present in IDF headquarters for several hours before the
attack on the U.S. communication ship. Shortly after Mintz made
these statements, he was threatened by Mossad, causing him to recant
his earlier statements. In a dispatch in Ha’aretz on November
7, 1991, Mintz expressed “grave anxiety over the media interest in
him” relating to the Liberty affair. He told Ha’aretz,
“Everyone is after me now, and that is what I’m afraid of. I don’t
need the Mossad
and Shin Bet4
knocking on my door.” His insider knowledge of Mossad’s
assassination squads and their practice of assassinations justified
Israel’s orders to attack the navy communication ship
came from a high Israeli official, reportedly General Yitzhak Rabin,
who later became Israel’s Laborite Prime Minister. President George
Bush’s White House staff tried to portray Israel’s Rabin as a
peacemaker, despite his long history of terrorist activities. In
1996, a person intending to fund a TV documentary on the Israeli
attack upon the Liberty was killed.
The media protecting those who perpetrated and
covered up for the murder of U.S. sailors ignored the June 7, 1997,
memorial services held by the surviving Liberty crewmen.

Israeli Conduct and Foreign Policy of U.S. Politicians)
Most Jewish people are honorable. But they have a strong segment
that has made Jews hated worldwide. This site provides information available to
insiders in covert operations and also to the American public. What Israel is
doing to the Palestinians, they have done to others over the years that
displeased them. Were it not for the strength of the United States, and the
financial funding of Israel, the United States would be a direct target.
Instead, the United States is a victim of Israel brutalities by the support
given by U.S. politicians to Israel, which was the cause of the initial al Qaeda
attacks upon the United States.
Picture this child as your child! Would you now
finally get outraged?
Many of the U.S. sailors killed by Israeli forces looked similar.
Letters from Palestinians:
For years, Palestinians have been the
direct victims of the arrogant and brutal Israeli Zionists, followed by
the sailors on the
USS Liberty. The American
public has been the indirect victim of the brutality. Al Qaeda's attacks upon
U.S. targets had been motivated—as they repeatedly stated—by the U.S. funding,
arming, and approval of Israeli brutality upon the people in the occupied and
annexed Palestinian land.
U.S. Military Secrets
Numerous articles have been written about U.S. secret
weapon technology sent to Israel that had been stolen and sold to
foreign countries, violating agreements with the United States. In
Dangerous Liaison-The Inside Story of the U.S.-Israeli Covert
Relationship, authors Andrew and Leslie Cockburn wrote about:
The symbiotic relationship between the United States and Israeli
The stealing of nuclear fuel by Israel from
the Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corporation plant at Apollo,
Pennsylvania in 1968.

the Guatemalan death squads; and other treasonous activities.

former federal agent Rodney Stich describes many of Israel’s activities against the
United States, based upon information
provided to him by CIA and other insiders.
Israel Selling U.S. Secret Weapons
Technology to U.S. Adversaries
Report in the March 15, 1992, New York Times
revealed the pattern of illegal sales by Israel of U.S. weapon
technology. The article revealed that Israel did this by either
installing the U.S. components in an Israeli weapon system or
disassembling the weapon to discover how it worked and then
constructing their own, selling the secret technology to foreign
countries, some being hostile to the U.S. interests.
Israel received Patriot missiles worth hundreds of
millions of dollars from the United States, and instead of keeping
the technology secret, sold the missiles with Patriot technology to
other countries, including China, in clear violation of U.S. law. A
State Department reportaccused Israel of engaging, for nearly ten years, in a systematic
pattern of reselling cutting-edge U.S. military technology to Third
Stealing American Secrets for Israel—
One of many examples of Israeli attacks upon U.S.
interests was the Dotan affair, in which U.S. corporations paid
bribes to Israeli officials, which came from the billions of dollars
given by the U.S. government to Israel. Over $11 million in bribe
money was diverted from the General Electric Company through a small
New Jersey front company to European bank accounts controlled by
Israel Brigadier General Rami Dotan. The case involved bribery,
money laundering, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices
Act, insider trading, and espionage.
A General Electric official, Herbert Steindler, was
considered a partner in the illicit schemes. Both General Electric
and Pratt and Whitney knew the United States was being defrauded,
but it was profitable for them to remain quiet, thereby becoming
co-conspirators in the crimes against the United States. Falsified
bills of lading and shipment of fictitious equipment, and shell
companies, were all part of the scheme.
Upon United States for Israel—
And Israel's Complicity
One of the most publicized examples of Israel spying upon the
United States was the Pollard affair. Israeli agents paid a U.S. Navy
intelligence analyst, Jonathan Jay Pollard, to steal military secrets, using a
Washington apartment owned by lawyer Harold Katz. The seriousness of the spying
operation was reflected by the life sentence given to Pollard (June 4, 1986) by
Chief District Judge Aubrey Robinson, U.S. District Judge Aubrey" in
Washington. Israel’s Zionist lobby in the United States protected Israel from
the serious repercussions that should have occurred. After Pollard was convicted
and sentenced to prison, Israel repeatedly requested of U.S. presidents that
Pollard be released. But the massive protests by U.S. intelligence personnel
blocked any of the presidents to respond to Israel’s request.
Israel Involvement in October Surprise:
Another Secret Kept From American Public
In the book, Defrauding America, former federal agent
Rodney Stich goes into
great detail about the October Surprise operation and Israel’s
involvement in it. That secret operation involving the fraudulent
acts by well-known political and intelligence personnel delayed the
release of American hostages held by Iran until after the election
between the President Jimmy Carter and the Republican candidate
Ronald Reagan. It was felt that if the hostages were released prior
to the election that Carter might be reelected. In exchange for
delaying the release of the hostages, considerable money and
military equipment were given to Iran.
Former Mossad agent Ben-Menashe described Israel‘s
involvement in the October Surprise operation, which conformed to
statements made to Stich by several CIA people with whom Stich had been in
frequent contact for several years, including Gunther Russbacher and
Not only was Israel involved in the secret shipments
of U.S. weapons to Iran, but Israeli agents were at the Madrid,
Barcelona, and Paris meetings, as related to Stich by Russbacher and
Ari Ben-Menashe. Israel knew the October Surprise operations were
acts of treason. Details in the book, Defrauding America, by
Several of Stich's CIA sources
gave details of the role played by the Mossad in drug trafficking
into the United States. These people, some of whom flew drugs during
Reagan-Bush’s Contra operation, described drug trafficking from
South and Central America into the United States by Mossad agents.
They told how Mossad agents, including Michael Harari and David
Kimche, were present at many of the drug transshipment points, and
especially in Panama. They also told Stich about the joint shipment of
CIA and Mossad drugs in CIA and DEA (Drug Enforcement
Crimes of Israel's Intelligence Agency:
Former Mossad officer, Colonel Victor Ostrovsky, was
concerned about the conduct of a controlling faction in Israel's
Mossad, including the Kidon assassination squads in friendly
countries, undermining foreign governments, its drug trafficking. He
exposed these activities in his books.
Ostrovsky described how the U.S. invasion of Panama dried up much of
the Mossad’s funds derived from shipping drugs into the United
States and the thousands of Jewish assets in various countries,
including the United States, who secretly feed information to the
Mossad that is often harmful to the host country. Ostrovsky left the
Mossad in the late 1980s but retained secret contacts with
high-level Mossad officials, staying abreast of Mossad activities.

Israel’s Sabotaging Conduct
The report told how Washington officials protected
this unlawful transfer of U.S. technology by ordering U.S.
investigators in Israel not to check on the destination
of U.S. technology sent to Israel, as is required of all other
countries. Israel, using money supplied by U.S. taxpayers, retained
powerful Washington law firms, and pays large contributions/bribes
to U.S. politicians, all of whom work against U.S. interests.
Congressman and House Energy and Commerce Committee
Chairman John Dingell stated that Congress has been reluctant to
embarrass Israel politically. This attitude existed
because of past retaliatory measures inflicted upon members of
congress by the Israeli lobby when Israel’s activities were
Israel sources in the United States, including the
Anti-Defamation League (ADL), whose parent is B’nai B’rith, exert
considerable influence over members of congress and White House
politicians, none of who dare not state anything negative about
Israel. Through its powerful Zionist group, Israel can fund
campaigns to defeat politicians not adhering to Zionist wishes.
One tactic used to silence those who report or
criticize the Mossad or Israel’s misconduct is to label them
anti-Semitic. It is risky business for a public official to defend
U.S. interests when it means confrontation with the Zionists. The
vast control by Israel over the U.S. media makes certain that the
American people hear Israel’s version.
ADL has been able to defuse any attention focused
upon unlawful activities of people connected with Israel or the
Mossad. The ADL lauded a major Jewish crime figure, Morris Barney
Dalitz of Las Vegas, who regularly donated heavily to the ADL.
Dalitz was called Chairman of the Board to such crime figures as
Meyer Lansky and Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel. Lansky and Siegel were
members of the original “Murder Incorporated,” also known as the

In the book, American Jewish
Organizations and Israel, author Lee
O’Brien describes the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith:
In later years, ADL has turned to...aggressive
measures....outright surveillance of individuals and groups, the
results of which are fed into both the Israeli
intelligence-gathering apparatus, via their consulates and
embassy, and American domestic intelligence, via the FBI. Top ADL
officials have admitted the use of clandestine surveillance
The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith has been
functioning as the action arm of Israel’s Mossad in the United
States for many years. In 1993, an ADL spy scandal erupted in San
Francisco, after which it was learned that the ADL had been acting
as proxy for the Mossad. The scandal surfaced after it was
discovered that San Francisco police inspector Tom Gerard
was stealing police intelligence files and selling them to the ADL.
8. San Francisco Chronicle, May 8, 1993.
It was learned during the investigation that Roy
Bullock was an ADL operative spying on numerous individuals and
groups in the United States. According to an April 9, 1993, Los
Angeles Times article, the ADL disguised payments made to
Bullock by funneling the money through Beverly Hills lawyer Bruce
Hochman, who in turn paid Bullock. Hochman was a prominent ADL
figure, and a member of a panel appointed by Governor Pete Wilson
to recommend the names of lawyers for federal judgeships. This
helps explain the inordinately high percentage of Jewish federal

people, including political opponents, union members, peasants, and

These Anti-American Activities
Israel depends upon the largesse of the U.S.
politicians through pressure from the powerful Israel lobby, Zionist
groups, and lobbyists, to fund the many diversified activities,
including their assassination teams and development of nuclear
missiles. Billions of dollars in loans have been given to Israel
that will never be repaid, the cost of which must be borne by the
American taxpayer, plus the interest on the money. In 1991, Israel
literally demanded of President Bush, George" that the U.S.
guarantee $10 billion in loans to build housing for Jews in land
taken from Jordan.
Despite the enormous amount of gifts to Israel, their
appreciation was reflected in a 1991 statement by Israel’s Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Gen. Yitzhak" as he attempted to lay a
guilt trip on the United States, claiming it had an obligation to
help settle Soviet Jews in Israel through the guarantee of the $10
billion loan. In 1991, the United States taxpayers paid over $4.3
billion in aid to Israel. Israel then invested these funds in U.S.
savings bonds for which the United States paid Israel over $34
million in interest (on the money that the United States gave to
Israel in the first place).
From 1974 to 1989, Israel received $16.4 billion in
loans that were never repaid. The loans were secretly converted to
grants, thereby avoiding repayment. The reason White House
politicians referred to the money transfer as loans in the first
place was to avoid U.S. oversight, which is required only on money
grants. By this time the money was provided, there was no control
over how it was used and whether it had to be repaid.
Israel Withholding Knowledge of
Terrorist Attacks Upon United States
Ostrovsky describes how the Mossad planned events so
that the blame would be on another group, and in that way accomplish
what Israel or the Mossad wanted to achieve. He described how the
Mossad knew about the impending bombing of the Marine barracks in
Beirut that killed nearly 300 American soldiers, and kept this
information from the U.S. so as to continue the hostilities between
the Americans and factions in the Middle East.
He described how the Mossad made possible
the explosion in a West Berlin night club
that killed one US serviceman and wounded several others, which
President Ronald Reagan then used as an excuse to bomb Libya,
killing many innocent women and children. The Mossad called this
plan, resulting in bombing Libya, Operation Trojan. France
recognized the Mossad’s role in Operation Trojan, and refused to
allow U.S. aircraft to fly from France to bomb Libya, forcing some
U.S. aircraft to fly from England and refuel in the air.
This bombing caused hostage-takers in Lebanon to
break off negotiations with the Americans and the British related to
the release of hostages. Instead, only French hostages were released
because of the nonparticipation of France in the bombing of Libya.
Ostrovsky writes in The Other Side of Deception
how and why a Kidon team killed long-time Mossad asset and British
citizen Robert Maxwell. The Mossad’s code name for Maxwell was the
“Little Czech.” Maxwell had threatened to expose the Mossad’s
attempts to halt the democratization of the Soviet Union, which
Israel felt would remove the Soviet threat and lessen Israel’s
strategic value to the United States.
This would result in a major
reduction in financial aid and military equipment. Maxwell had
financially funded many prior Mossad activities, and was now in need
of immediate financial help himself. Maxwell reportedly warned that
if Israel did not provide this help, he would publicize Israel’s
attempt to prevent the end of the Cold War.
In preparing to assassinate Maxwell, the Mossad
reportedly instructed Maxwell to meet them in Los Cristos on the
island of Grand Canary, and to get there via his yacht. A Kidon
team, using a boat on the evening of November 4, 1991, climbed on
board Maxwell’s yacht and killed him. Maxwell was buried on the
Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, while Israel‘s Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir eulogized the man that Israel’s Mossad had reportedly killed.
Ian Stuart's wife and three small daughters were
killed in their San Diego home by large-caliber bullets shot into
their heads on November 7, 1992. Spiro, a Mossad asset,
was found dead in a car parked in the desert, having died from
ingesting cyanide. Spiro had connections to the CIA, British MI6,
and Mossad, and had been involved in various CIA operations,
including October Surprise, the Reagan-Bush Iran-Contra affair, and
the Lebanese hostage crisis.
Spiro had worked with Oliver North in the
arms-for-hostages schemes. He was helping CIA asset Michael
Riconosciuto collect documents to present to a federal grand jury
conducting hearings into the Inslaw matter
when he was killed. Before his death, Ian Spiro told friends that he
was receiving phone threats from the people in the CIA or Defense
Intelligence Agency (DIA).
The maid who worked part-time for the Spiro family

intelligence community as an assassin. Another possible witness who

that Spiro was planning to duplicate a nationwide

become concerned about the harm being inflicted worldwide by the
U.S., British, and Israel intelligence agencies, and began exposing
some of their worse secrets.

Practice of U.S. Politicians Protecting Israel
Continued in the Obama Presidency
In May 2009, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, in the Obama
administration, dropped charges against two staffers in the pro-Israel lobbying
group Aipac, who were charged with passing U.S. secrets to Israel: Steve Rosen
and Keith Weissman. Possibly this was due to the need to avoid offending the
powerful Israel lobby and being targeted for political defeat−as
other politicians had learned.
Israel's Brutality in Invaded Land
Israel invaded the West Bank of Jordan (Transjordan) in 1967, and had occupied
it since that time. Despite numerous UN resolutions, which
seem never to be publicized by the media and others, Israel have refused to
vacate the occupied country. They even built settlements in the occupied
land, making it obvious to all but the brain-dead that Israel had no
intention of vacating the land they seized.
- During the occupation, Israel had continuously
inflicted great harm upon the people of the invaded land and upon nearby
- U.S. politicians, using taxpayer money, have sent
billions of U.S. taxpayers' dollars to Israel, enabling Israel to invade, continue the
invasion, and brutalize the people in the occupied land.
- U.S. politicians have sent billions of dollars of
heavy military equipment to Israel, knowing that Israel used the arms and
military equipment to kill innocent people in the occupied territory and in
neighboring countries, and the people fighting the invaders.
- For 40 years, since 1967, the people in the occupied territory
have heard nothing but talk about Israel vacating the occupied land, while
being humiliated and killed in the process.
- With no weapons to fight against the massive heavy
military equipment the U.S. provided to Israel, desperate people seeking to
reclaim their country have had to
engage in suicide bombing and what some call terrorist attacks (while others
call those who attempt to drive Israel from their land, patriots).
- The invasion caused the formation of the group known
as Hamas in Palestine, which was devoted to driving Israel out of the
invaded and occupied territory. Although known as patriots and heroes in the
Middle East, Israel sympathizers call them terrorists. Early Americans
wishing to succeed from English rule would be even worst terrorists. We
called these early American fights, patriots.
- The invasion by Israel caused the formation of the group known
as Hezbollah in Lebanon, retaliating against Israel for the death and
destruction inflicted by Israel over the years.
- The close alliance between Israel and the United
States makes the United States complicit in the invasion, the occupation,
the brutalities, which have festered for many years. In the 1950s, people
throughout the Middle East liked Americans, but this started changing with
the brutalities inflicted by Israel, which has dragged down the United
States and made it a target for what are called "terrorists."
- No U.S. politician can afford to make any statement
not supporting Israel without being targeted by the various Israel political
groups in the United States. Politicians like Senators Lieberman and Hillary
Clinton, and President George Bush, Jr. cater to the Israel lobby to avoid
losing large blocks of Jewish voters.
Israel's Trampling on U.S.
With Absolute Immunity
So powerful are the Israel political groups that
Israel has been able to:
- Conduct a military attack on the U.S. Navy ship,
U.S.S. Liberty, killing numerous Navy sailors during hours of
continuous military attacks. So powerful is Israel over U.S. actions
that ships going to the rescue of the U.S.S. Liberty were called back.
- Jeopardize the security of the United States
arising from the support, funding, arming, of Israel, under orders of
- Israel, through the Mossad, engaged in drug
smuggling into the United States during the CIA and National Security
Council's drug smuggling as part of the Contra affair. (Described in the
books, Defrauding America and Drugging America.)
- Israel's continuous spying in the United States and
thefts of military secrets.
- By it's conduct, Israel's politicians have caused to be
inflicted great harm upon the United States, assisted by U.S. politicians
whose self-interests are treated far above the national interests of the
- Israel politicians, and U.S. politicians, speaking on
U.S. television (July 25. 2006) upheld the slaughter of Lebanese citizens and
the destruction of this once beautiful city, as justified because Hezbollah
had seized two Israeli soldiers. Israel has seized and imprisoned hundreds of
Lebanese and other Middle East citizens, for years. Further, the killings of
innocent people on this phony argument reflects the advanced arrogance of U.S.
- A more graphic understanding of what President George
Bush, Condoleezza "Bugs Bunny" Rice, and their shills say is justified, look
at a few of the
victims of their actions. These are a sampling of the consequences from
the public's approval of the conduct, or the utter failure to object.
President Bush even rushed additional bombs to Israel to continue the
slaughter of Lebanese citizens. An article in the New York Times (July
27, 2006) stated:
- Even Britain's patience with the United States is wearing thin over the
Mideast crisis. The British foreign secretary, Margaret Beckett, told reports
that Britain would made a formal complaint to the United States over its use
of a British airport for a stopping point in transporting bombs to Israel. The
British news media reported Wednesday that American aircraft carrying
"bunker-busting" bombs from the United States to Israel refueled at a Scottish
air base last weekend.
- While you are at it, look at a sampling of the
victims in Iraq from the serial lying of President George Bush, his
cabinet, and their many shills in political office and the media. Are you one
of those who made these and hundreds of similar atrocities possible? Did your
son or husband get killed in Iraq, and did you vote for President George Bush,
which made possible the deaths that followed?
- Let's also look at the
victims in Lebanon which were made possible by those who support Israel,
President Bush, and those many U.S. media people who supported the murderous
invasion of Lebanon.
Lobbying Determines U.S. Middle East Policies—
At Repeated Catastrophic Consequences
The Israel lobbies in the United States are so powerful that no politicians
can oppose these brutal and deadly acts without being targeted for defeat
and without being called anti-Semitic. So powerful are these groups that
Americans are fed a daily barrage of support by media people and politician
pundits, willing to subvert national interests for their own greed and
Al Qaeda, for instance, have repeatedly
stated their attacks upon U.S. targets result from the harm inflicted upon the
Palestinians by Israel, with the aid and complicity of American politicians.
Israel's Murderous Invasion
in July 2006
In July 2006, Israel, with its powerful military machine
provided by the United States and its taxpayers, conducted a turkey-shoot
invasion and destruction of Lebanon, putting the relatively poor nation into
shambles, along with the deaths of countless numbers of innocent people.
With no military able to defend against the missiles and
jet aircraft attacks, the people of Lebanon were sitting ducks for the cowardly
Entire cities of this impoverished countries have been laid
to waste by the Israeli forces, using U.S. supplied weapons.
Israel sought to justify its slaughter of Lebanese on the
argument that two Israeli solders were captured. Israel had hundreds of Lebanese
imprisoned, some for over ten years. Only the brain-dead could accept that
President Bush approved the slaughter by arguing Israel's
murderous attacks were justified by the seizure of two Israeli soldiers.
This is not simply an invasion of a country that had
virtually no defenses against invasion by air; it was murder of innocent people,
including childrenwhich Israel has been very good
at in subverting the people in the invaded and occupied West Bank and Gaza. The
killing of innocents, including babies, and invading countries that have no
defenses even close to comparing with the might of the United Statesappears to
be also a well entrenched trait of U.S. politicians (and their shills throughout
government, in the media, and among the public.
The "Turkey Shooting" by Israel of
defenseless men, women, children, and infants has similarities to the Turkey
Shoot of Navy personnel on the U.S.S. Liberty in June 8, 1967, as Israel was
invading the West Bank, which started the escalating so-called terrorist acts
by the defenders and friends of the defenders. although the media shills have
kept the details from the public, the crewmembers who survived that brutal
Turkey Shoot have a
describing the deliberate and repeated shelling of the ship.
But the deliberate targeting of
non-combatants by Israel is common practice. One incident during the Israel
Turkey Shoot of Lebanese was the deliberate 6-hour attack upon a U.N. post
that killed four U.N. observers who were monitoring the slaughter of Lebanese.
A New York Times article (July 27, 2006, stated:
U.N. Says It Protested to Israel
During 6-Hour Attack That Killed 4 Observers in Lebanon.
The United Nations said
Wednesday that its top officials in New York and its officers on the ground
in Lebanon made numerous calls on Tuesday to the Israeli mission and the
Israeli military to protest repeated firing on its outpost in Lebanon where
four unarmed observers ended up being killed.
Jane Holl Lute, the assistant
secretary general for peacekeeping operations, said at an emergency meeting
of the Security Council that over the six-hour period in which the United
Nations' warnings were being conveyed to the Israelis, the observation post
at Khiam, in southern Lebanon, continued to come under fire.
The firing persisted even after
rescuers reached the hilltop site, she said, and in all it was subjected to
21 strikes, 11 of them aerial bombardments and at least 6 artillery rounds.
She described the observation
posts as being "well known and clearly marked" and added that no Hezbollah
activity was reported in the area.
Ms. Lute said the United Nations
became so alarmed by the continuing attacks that she enlisted Mark Malloch
Brown, the deputy secretary general, to join her in placing the calls.
In Lebanon, Khaled Mansour, the
United Nations spokesman, said that he and Maj. Gen. Alain Pellegrino, the
commander of the United Nations force there, known as Unifil, had contacted
Israeli military commanders repeatedly during the same period.
When the United Nations lost
contact with the outpost on Tuesday evening, it secured safe passage from
Israel to send in a rescue party of Indian troops. Firing continued during
the rescue operation despite repeated requests to the I.D.F. for an
abatement," she said, speaking of the Israeli Defense Forces.
They [U.N. rescue team] found
the shelter collapsed and the remains of the four observers.
In a news conference, the
normally placid Mr. Annan made no effort to control his rage at Israel for
what he called an "apparently deliberate targeting" of a United Nations
observer post in southern Lebanon by Israel on Tuesday.
An Israeli airstrike near the
Syrian border hit a truck carrying medical supplies and food from the United
Arab Emirates Wednesday, killing its Syrian driver, Reuters reported.
President Bush and his secretary
of state Rice, supported Israel's conduct, impugning blame upon all Americans.
Prior to World War II, there was a
great hatred for Jews based upon the conduct of a few belligerent ones,
something that is common in the legal fraternity in the United States where a
large percentage of the lawyers are Jews.
That crime, combined with the
repeated stealing of U.S. secrets, Israel's Mossad involvement in drug
smuggling into the United States during the Reagan-Bush years, their
involvement in October Surprise, and their brutal treatment of people in the
lands they invade, knowing that their acts will generate hatred for the United
States, leaves no doubt that Israel's leaders are a threat and source of real
harm to the American people.
Israel claims two Israel soldiers
were seized, as justification for destroying one of the most Westernized
countries in the Middle East. Their military destruction--made possible by
U.S. provided weapons and funds−were directed not at Hezbollah fighters in
the south, but innocent civilians in the cities, especially Beirut. At the
same time, in June 2006, Israel destroyed the only power station in Gaza,
destroyed bridges, and other infrastructure.
Like a crazed animal, Israel was
killing human beings like crazed drunken hunters shooting and killing caged
Supporting all this were President
George Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza "Bugs Bunny" Rice, and the shills
in congress who were recipients of large amounts of money from the powerful
Israel lobby and other Israeli groups.
Warning Issued to United States
By Saudi Arabian Government
The only real courageous outrage
to the Turkey-Shoot killing of people in Lebanon was
shown by the rulers in Saudi Arabia. Their announcement on July 23, 2006 stated:
Jeddah, July 25, the following is the
statement issued today by the royal court:
The kingdom of Saudi Arabia has undertaken the role required of it by its
security council's permanent member states to convey the same message.
The Arabs have proclaimed peace as a
strategic option for the Arab nation. they presented a just and distinct
plan for regaining the occupied Arab territories in exchange for peace. They
refused to respond to provocations and ignored anti-peace extremist calls.
It should be stated that patience could not last forever. If the Israeli
military brutality persisted with killings and destruction no one could
predict the consequences and than regrets will be in vain.
Therefore, the kingdom addresses an appeal
and a warning to the international community in its entirety, as represented
by the U.N. and in particular the U.S.
The kingdom of Saudi Arabia calls on all
to act in accordance with honest, conscious and international moral and
humanitarian laws. It also warns all that if the peace option is rejected
due to the Israeli arrogance then only the war option remains and no one
knows the repercussions befalling the region, including wars and conflict
that will spare no one including those whose military power is now tempting
them to play with fire.
national duty with regard to the situation in the region and repercussions
of events in Lebanon and the occupied Palestinian territories. In this
regard, it has cautioned, warned and extended advice. Furthermore, it has
striven from the first moment to stop the aggression, moving on more than
one front and by more than one means, to persuade the international
community to force Israel to agree to a ceasefire.
Meanwhile, the kingdom has dispatched HRH,
the foreign minister, and HRH the secretary general of the national security
council, to meet H.E. the U.S. president in Washington and inform him of its
views on the grave and unpredictable consequences of the unremitting Israeli
aggression if matters went beyond control. The kingdom has also asked
personal envoys to visit the capitals of the Security Council's permanent
member states to convey the same message.
An Entire Country Laid to Waste
An entire country laid to waste. For what? Two Israel
soldiers captured? Israel has held in prison, for years, hundreds of Lebanese
and Palestinians. The firing of rockets? What can be expected of a people
whose land had been invaded, been occupied for 39 years, people crushed in
their homes with military tanks (paid for and provided by U.S. politicians
with public approval).
And of the serial liars that the U.S. has for a
president, he and his shills claim they want to protect innocent lives while
they rush additional arms to Israel for the target practice of Israel military
pilots and guided missiles.
Never before has a president of the United States
perpetrated so many impeachable crimes, and has harmed the United States
and other countries in the process. Yet, he can't be impeached, without
impeaching the vice president and other shills on the president's staff.
Although there was once hope that the White House group
would be out of office before they brought on World War II, with nuclear
missiles wiping out many U.S. cities, that hope is all but lost at this time.
And for America's media personnel, many
on the secret payroll of the CIA and other government offices, not a word about
the unprecedented brutality upon a country with little resources that has just
seen much of the infrastructure destroyed.
And for the American public, the same group that approved
of the murders of tens of thousands of Iraqis, who continue to support their
lying president, and who share guilt in the deaths and tragedies inflicted in
their name by the most arrogant and dangerous president in the last 100 years,
you are long overdue to suffer the consequences.
Anyone can love their country and hate the people that
destroying it from within, like Trojan horses. And destroying it in ways
the in-denial apathetic public doesn't even know.
Another Perspective on
Middle East Problems
Let's make a few substitutes to get another
perspective on the root cause of the Middle East problems that has bred what
some call terrorist activities that then fed on itself:
Consider Canada as being invaded by the
United States, and occupied for year after year, brutalizing its people as
the Israeli have brutalized and killed people in the occupied West Bank and
Consider Canadians, without any military
defense comparable to the U.S. war machine, having to engage in suicide
bombings as their primary means to object to the brutalities and occupation
by Americans. U.S. would call the Canadians terrorists; Canada would call
Consider certain Mexicans groups as being
supportive of the invaded and occupied Canadians, and militarily powerless
compared to the U.S. war making machines. Some Mexicans, again in support of
the Canadians, engage in token military strikes against the United States,
and some are caught and imprisoned. Hundreds of Mexicans then languish in
U.S. prison, for years.
Seeking to gain the release of the
imprisoned Mexicans, the Mexican groups seize two U.S. soldiers and send
primitive missiles into the United States, which cause only limited damage.
The U.S. then turns around, with its
powerful military machine, and pulverizes Mexico's cities, targeting
innocent people throughout Mexico.
This is a rough example, but it helps to put
another perspective on a view away from the herd mentality of most U.S. media
people (and remember many are on the secret payroll of the CIA and other
military buildup of Israel by the United States, furnishing military weapons
and money that are knowingly used against Arabs who are
fighting Israel’s invasion of Arab land in 1967 and the subsequent
brutal occupation by Israel. This policy formed the birth of the continuing
increasing in people wanting to harm the United States. The United States call
these people terrorists, for seeking to halt the brutal occupation by Israel.
The hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 2001, were a ripple effect
from the United States aiding and abetting Israel's brutal occupation and
killing of thousands of innocent civilians in Palestine, Gaza, and Lebanon.
nuclear arsenal, made possible by U.S. politicians, with the information
kept from the American people, while U.S. politicians threaten another war,
with Iran, for seeking to have a nuclear power plant.
Suffered by U.S.
For Arming and Funding Israel's Aggression
U.S. interests were
harmed by Israel's brutal attacks on Lebanon. For instance:
- Further inflamed the people of the Middle East and
other countries against the United States and its people, since Israel and
the United States act in lockstep, being funded by the United States.
- Strong possibility of the entire Middle East engaged
- Worsening of U.S. deficit as the price of fuel, which
skyrocketed with the U.S. invasion of Iraq, again sky rocketed with the
invasion of Lebanon.
- Breeding even more fighters against the United States,
to an extent that there is no possible defense against such large numbers
wanting to kill the Americans responsible for their plight.
- Danger of igniting World War III. If and when that
happens, the thousands of nuclear missiles in the former Soviet Union could
easily end up in the United States, showing them the ripple effects of the
conduct by their politicians, and their support of these politicians.
As with any other conduct, the United States, by its
politicians, have "earned" the consequences, the worse yet to come.
Brutality and Killing of Civilians In Gaza
Using huge tanks, the most advanced fighter
planes in the world, and sophisticated weapons designed to kill, Israel has used
these methods to kill unarmed civilians in Gaza, As a result, in three days of
attacks upon the mostly unarmed Gaza civilians, over 500 had been killed and
nearly 2,000 injured. The brave men of Israel have killed and maimed thousands
of mostly innocent victims, including women, children, and infants. These
souls were no match against the overwhelming military might of Israel—and its
Under various criminal statutes, anyone who aids and comforts a person or thing
committing criminal or violent acts against another becomes equally guilty, as a
con-conspirator, and guilty of aiding and abetting the crimes. And those who
know of these crimes and do nothing to stop them, also become accomplices, as a
matter of criminal law.
Israel could not have perpetrated the latest attacks and killing of innocent
civilians—or the earlier attacks on the people of Lebanon or the West Bank that
was formerly a part of Transjordan—without the weapons supplied by the United
States, the billions of U.S. taxpayers dollars, or support by U.S.
politicians—and the people they represent, being the American people.
Using that analogy, the United States, its politicians, the people who support
these acts, are similarly guilty of the brutalities inflicted upon the victims.
A few facts that people in the United States should consider concerning the
aiding and abetting of Israel's conduct:
- Over 70 United Resolutions have
been directed against Israel. (Do a google search: "UN resolutions against
Israel.) U.S. politicians have refused to support the resolutions!
- A treaty between
Israel and the people in the land that Israel seized in the 1967 war has been
prevented by Israel demanding to retain certain of the Arab land it seized in
that 1967 attack, including Jerusalem and certain areas of the West Bank. And
refusal to return the property of Arabs in Israel that was seized by Israel.
- Israel−and its many shills in the United States−including
Congress, such as Senator Lieberman among many others, argue that its killing
and maiming of thousands of civilians is justified
because the Hamas group in Gaza fired rockets into Israel. This group is
attacking Israel for having invaded Arab land, brutalizing its citizens, and
refusing to leave, building permanent settlements showing they intend to
permanently keep the land. The Hamas group is doing what Americans would do if
Mexico seized part of the United States, brutalized the people in the seized
area, and refused to leave. Those who fight the invading Israel forces are
called terrorists. Therefore, people that attacked the British in the 1700s
were not patriots, but rather, terrorists, according to the spinners of
Israel's Killing of Peaceful
Activists Seeking to
Bring Relief to Gaza's People
In May 2010, a
flotilla of ships with unarmed peace activists proceeded to Gaza
with loads of humanitarian supplies for the Gaza people. Israel
had prevented most of any Israeli attack on Gaza flotilla sparks
international outrage. One of the ships was the
Mavi Marmara, and
the flagship of the flotilla. As the Mavi Marmara proceeded
toward Gaza and in international waters, ships of the Israeli
navy—funded in part by U.S.
taxpayers as authorized by U.S. politicians—attacked
the vessel. An article in the British Guardian newspaper (guardian.co.uk,
May 31, 2010) described what happened. A portion of that
In a blitz of
military strength, masked commandos rapelled on to the
Turkish ship's deck from a helicopter and boarded from
the side by fast attack launch. They were armed with
guns, stun grenades and tear gas. Assault craft drenched
their target in dazzling light and used booming tannoys
to warn the ship's passengers to halt their mission or
face Israel taking "all the necessary measures in order
to enforce this blockade".
The activists from as many as 50
different countries stood little chance in the face of
such a show of strength. But if Israel had been hoping
to benefit from the cover of darkness by attacking at
night, they did not reckon on the presence of a network
of on-board video cameras recording their opening moves.
Turkish television footage showed how
one by one as the commandos descended by ropes to the
deck they were ambushed by waiting passengers armed with
what appeared to be metal bars, sticks and in one case,
a table. The reception for two commandos descending from
a helicopter was brutal – the first was battered to the
ground and heavily beaten and the second, landing
seconds later, was assaulted by a man with a bar and
forced to retreat into a doorway before fighting back
Whether these were the first blows
struck in an incident that ended with the deaths of at
least nine people and the injury of at least 50, is
disputed. Those on board, including a reporter for Al
Jazeera, said the Israelis fired on the boat before
boarding. Israel said it opened fire after its commandos
were attacked by activists wielding knives, clubs and
pistols wrested from its soldiers. It was impossible
yesterday to verify either account.
What is certainly true is that shortly
after the assault, all communications with the flotilla
were blocked. Mobile phones, satellite phones and
internet access all went down, making it all but
impossible to glean any account from the passengers
about what had happened, beyond the few minutes that
were captured on film. Israel's version of events became
the only one available in any detail.
The Guardian has attempted to piece
together the story from electronic communications from
the flotilla, video footage taken on board, interviews
with the flotilla organisers, reports from journalists
on board the Mavi Marmara, reports from journalists
embedded with the Israeli military and statements from
During Sunday on the journey from
Cyprus towards Gaza, the trip had been progressing well,
with spirits high among the pro-Palestinian activists,
according to messages received from the flotilla at the
Cyprus base of Free Gaza, one of the campaign groups
behind the mission.
"They were excited because they knew
they were on their way," Greta Berlin, a Free Gaza
activist in Cyprus who was in frequent contact, said.
"We would get little messages saying 'we are on a
Mediterranean cruise, it is really quite lovely'. There
was no feeling until around midnight that anyone was in
Little did they know that three hours
earlier than that, at around 9pm, three Israeli naval
craft had left the northern Israeli port of Haifa to
intercept them. The plan was for Israel's elite Flotilla
13 unit to disembark on the top deck of the Mavi
Marmara, and from there rush to the vessel's bridge and
order the Marmara's captain to stop, said Israeli
journalist, Ron Ben Yishai, who was embedded with the
By around 11pm Israel's taskforce was
alongside the flotilla of six vessels and one of the
navy ships broadcast a warning to the flotilla not to
"If you ignore this order and enter
the blockaded area, the Israeli navy will be forced to
take all the necessary measures in order to enforce this
blockade," the message said, according to a recording
later broadcast on Israeli radio.
Then around midnight the flotilla co-ordinators
appeared to become worried and Lubna Masarwa, a
Palestinian Israeli on board the Marmara issued a series
of urgent messages via Twitter.
"We didn't expect them now," she said.
"We thought they will arrive at the morning, please stay
in touch with the other boats … People here put there
life jackets [sic], everybody preparing here. We are in
international waters … Three boats are coming, not two,
Three Israeli boats, we are 78 mile from Israel … Two
Israeli ships coming toward us … they contact the ship
asked who we are and disappeared, getting close to the
ship we can see them."
The Free Gaza campaign was worried
enough to issue "a call to the world from the people on
the boats". "This flotilla is bringing supplies the
people of Gaza and are being met by military force," it
Over the next few hours as the Israeli
ships circled, the flotilla issued a series of brief
messages through their spot locator, a
telecommunications device which charted their progress
on a web site.
"This is a HELP message," it said at
12.30am. "We have been contacted by the Israelis but are
still fine, don't worry."
Shortly afterwards another states:
"Challenger 2 [one of the boats] contacted by Israeli
Defence Force radio A/O approached by IDF ships", and
another: "Going ahead". Three more "OK" signals between
1.30am and 2.30am were then replaced at 4.30am by a red
exclamation mark stating: "Last position before IDF
attack. 04:30 GMT, Latitude:32.64113,
Longitude:33.56727" – around 70 miles from the coast of
northern Israel and 90 miles from Gaza.
The assault had been under way for at
least 30 minutes, according to Dr Arafat Madi, one of
the European organisers of the convoy who spoke to the
activists by satellite phone shortly afterwards.
"The Israelis took the phones from us
as we were talking," he said. "We heard from them that
the Israeli army attacked all the ships at once with
hundreds of soldiers."
He said the Greek captain of one of
the smaller vessels, the 8000, had been shot and two
others were injured. But he had no information about
injuries on the other vessels and said they were
struggling to get any information from the Israelis to
give to worried families of the activists.
Video footage of the assault on the
Mavi Marmara showed at least half a dozen armed and
masked commandos gathering themselves on the bow deck of
the ship, apparently having been helicoptered on.
During the assault, which began in
earnest 40 miles from the coast, several journalists
continued to broadcast from the aft deck, sharing a
microphone in a relay as they broadcast to the world.
Reporting for Press TV, an Iranian
state-run channel, one said: "We are being hit by tear
gas, stun grenades. We have navy ships on every side and
helicopters ahead. We are being attacked on every side."
Activists on the ship were shown on
video mustering at the top of a flight of stairs, armed
with makeshift weapons. The ship's captain could be
heard speaking over the tannoy, urging them to give up:
"Please, all the brothers, go back to your cabin and sit
on your seats. Stop your resistance. They are using live
ammunition. We can't protect ourselves."
Over the noise of gunfire, Jamal
Elshayyal, reporting for Al Jazeera, said two passengers
had been killed. He claimed a white flag of surrender
had been raised on board "after Israeli commandos
descended upon the ship from a helicopter as well as
surrounding it on all sides [in boats]." He continued:
"Despite the white flag being raised, the Israeli army
is still shooting, still firing live munitions."
Shortly afterwards the broadcasts
stopped and all internet and satellite phone connections
The Israeli military had been
surprised by the resistance they met, according to an
account by Ben Yishai. He said the commandos were
carrying paintball rifles. He said they were equipped
with handguns but were only authorised to use them in
commandos were prepared to mostly encounter political
activists seeking to hold a
protest, rather than trained street fighters," he
wrote on the Ynet News website. "The rioters on the top
deck, whose number swelled up to 30 by that time, kept
on beating up about 30 commandos who kept gliding their
way one by one from the helicopter."
He claimed activists stole a handgun
from one commando and threw him 30 feet over a rail,
causing serious head injuries. Only after this were
commandos authorised to use live ammunition and then
shot at activists' legs, he said. He added that
passengers pounded soldiers' hands as they tried to
climb on board.
Footage from inside the ship,
broadcast on Turkish television, showed the impact of
the battle. A woman carried a bloodstained stretcher,
men were shown bleeding from wounds, people moved about
tending the injured. People were stretched out on the
floor and it was not clear if they were alive or dead.

flotilla, is one of the country's elite military
formations, with rigorous selection and training
procedures and a reputation for ruthless efficiency. It
is known to have been involved in numerous clandestine
seaborne operations, including many raids on
neighbouring Lebanon. It works closely with the Mossad
It was also involved in a curious
foreshadowing of the Gaza incident in February 1988,
when Flotilla 13 is reported to have sabotaged an
attempt by the PLO to highlight the issue of Palestinian
refugees by sailing a ship to an Israeli port, forcing
Israel either to sink it or board it or let it land the
refugees. The night before the vessel, al-Awda ("The
Return") was due to sail, it was blown up and sunk in
Limassol harbour, Cyprus — with no loss of life or
In recent years the naval commando
force has played a key role in intercepting arms
shipments from Iran and Syria to Hamas in the Gaza Strip
and Hizbullah in Lebanon. Flotilla 13 is often compared
to the US Navy Seals and Britain's Special Boat Service.
Israel's role in Subverting America
And America's Interests
committed deadly and subversive acts against the United States over the years.
These included, for instance:
- Israel's deliberate murder of U.S. sailors. Israel had
mounted a deliberate killed U.S. military personnel. Israel's military strike against the U.S. Navy ship,
killed many American sailors. That attack continued for hours. U.S. knew of
the ongoing attack and pulled by American forces, allowing American lives to
be brutally ended, thereby placating powerful Israel groups in the United
States. American lives were expended to placate Israel's politicians. (more

U.S. military personnel, don't antagonize the powerful Israel lobbies in
the United States. To do otherwise means the downfall of any U.S.

- The repeated spying operations against the United States.
Israel had been
spying on the United States and stealing its secrets for years, committing
espionage against America. Among the most publicized spy cases were those of
Jonathan Pollard and Ben-Ami Kadish. A New York Times article (December
31, 2008) made reference to Kadish with the following comments:
- An espionage
case that had threatened United States relations with Israel and stirred
talk of the death penalty ended [when Kadish] pleaded guilty in federal
court in Manhattan to reduced charges [reduced because of his age] of
leaking classified military documents to the Israeli government in the
1980s.] Mr. Kadish's
case has been linked to the case of Mr. Pollard, which has long been a
matter of contention between the United States and Israel, whose leaders
have argued, unsuccessfully, for Mr. Pollard's release.

killings in the United States (as detailed in the book, Defrauding America).

States during the Reagan-Bush administrations of the 1980s. (Details in Defrauding America and
- Israel's role
in carrying out the October Surprise, the secret operation that enabled
presidential candidate Ronald Reagan to send U.S. military supplies to Iran
so as to delay the release of the 52 American hostages until the
presidential elections, insuring that Reagan would be elected president.
(Details in Defrauding America.)
This undermined the presidential elections. Knowledge of this type enabled
Israel to blackmail U.S. politicians.
- Israel's ability
to expose these corrupt activities by American politicians undoubtedly plays a
certain role in controlling the withholding of information on Israel's hostile
acts against the United States.
The birth and
explosive growth of people wanting to kill Americans has resulted from, and
will continue to increase, with America's funding, arming, and support of
Israel's violent occupation of land taken from Arabs. U.S. politicians fuel
the fire by continuing the very policies that breeds the world's greatest
increase in people wanting to kill Americans.

United States politicians and shills for Israel continue their deception,
America and its people will pay the consequences.
politician that dares to make statements against Israel is not only falsely
accused of anti-Semitism but also targeted for extinction, as many learned. In
this way, Israel subverts the political process in the United States.

will never know how the United States has suffered for its military and
financial support for Israel and its aggression.

bliss! And Americans have paid and will continue to pay a heavy price for
their ignorance of these and other areas of corruption.

Conduct by Israel and U.S. Politicians Responsible
For Great Harm to Americans and Middle East People
The one-sided support, funding and arming Israel with
heavy military weapons, has had tragic consequences for the people of
the United States.
Israel's murderous and inhumane attacks against the
Arabs, funded and armed by the United States, has bred and generated the
last 40 years of hatred against the United States. Also, for those who
care enough to read, we mustn't forget Israel's conduct that inflicted
great harm upon Americans. Consider the following examples:
- For instance, the deliberate military attack upon
the U.S.S. Liberty that killed dozens of U.S. Navy personnel (while
White House politicians pulled back Navy vessels going to their

- The spying upon the United States by Israel. (Read
Defrauding America and Drugging America for details
- The practice of Israel sending its Mossad agents
into other countries and killing citizens−including
in the United States (as detailed in Defrauding America).
U.S. politicians, for self-serving interests, have
kept these hostile attacks against the United States and its people
secret, and aided and abetted the host of consequences suffered by the
people of the United States.

How the Coalition Composed of Israel, Its
U.S. Politicians, and U.S. Media, Manipulates
The Uninformed and Gullible American Public

coalition composed of Israel, its lobbies, especially AIPAC, U.S.
politicians, and U.S. media, is easy prey by the widespread power of Israel
in the United States.
The 2014 horrific brutalities upon the Palestinians in Gaza
was a prime example. Never was it said by U.S. politicians and U.S. media
that Israel was an invading country, using U.S.-provided heavy military
machines—intended against powerful
nations—used against a virtually
defenseless people, including women and children.
In desperation, a small group in Gaza, sent primitive
missiles into Israel, the invading nation, that did very little
Never was it said that the invaded Palestinians had a right

Nor were the American people ever told that the series of al
Qaeda attacks were motivated by a group outraged by what the Israel-U.S.
politicians were doing to the normally peaceful Palestinians. They, at
least, were showing concern, while U.S. politicians were making the
continuing brutalities possible.
Another common tactic was to blame the Palestinians for not
agreeing to a settlement. There was no settlement; Israel had no intention

Consider the following in evaluating the war
mongering by U.S. Neocons and Israel's militants:
- Iran had never posed any threat to the United
States. It does have anger against Israel for
brutal occupation of Palestine and annexing the invaded land to
Israel—with no intent to
ever abandon the annexed territory, despite dozens of U.N.
- Israel has invaded Palestine, annexed part of
it, built permanent settlements throughout Palestine, never
intends to leave, and brutalize and humiliate the people. This

- Israel has an estimated 200 nuclear missiles,
and refuses to allow any other nation the same right. And even
wants to embroil the United States still another war, against
Iran, to bar Iran from even having nuclear power.

has invaded, occupied, annexed, and brutalized the residents—with
the support of U.S. politicians.

Israel finds himself the target of removal by the powerful
- Israel's deadly contempt for the United
States as shown by the
hours spent attacking the USS Liberty, killing and maiming
dozens of U.S. service personnel, followed by cover-up of U.S.

Recognize this: the American public has been
tragically duped for decades, with every check and balance keeping a
third-rail secrecy on these and many other matters.
