(TJP) – I renounced my US citizenship and the United States of Hypocrisy refused to acknowledge my right, our right, to self-determination. Alright then, I am thinking now that maybe I just needed to leave for 10 years or so and reflect on things, now that I have, I have made some important conclusions. Read the rest of this entry »
(1WorldCitezen) – Never in modern day history has a presidential candidate with a real chance had as much integrity, intelligence and courage as Ron Paul. I renounced my US citizenship in shame for what America has become, but Ron Paul makes me proud once again. TJP Read the rest of this entry »
(1WorldCitizen) – http://Trade-Not-Aid.net – After five years of an illegal and brutal blockade of Gaza, a plan is finally announced to replace aid with trade so that the Palestinian people can shed their charitible dependency status in Gaza and live in dignity by developing their own economy.

During Operation Cast Lead Israel committed massive war crimes for all the world to see. Among these crimes the use of White Phosphorus in densely populated areas, use of Depleted Uranium, bombing civilian targets of all sorts without military necessity, destroying civilian infrastructure with no military justification and the infamous massacre of the Samouni family… among many other crimes.

(1WorldCitizen) – The American taxpayer continues to pay for Israel to terrorise children by dropping bombs on residential areas of Gaza. Women and children were injured in Israel’s latest bombing. Read the rest of this entry »
(OneWorldCitizen) – Mubarak may have stepped down, but until the Mubarak era Egyptian blockade of Gaza is shattered, the Egyptian revolution is incomplete. We must end this Zionist/American imperialist blockade once and for all. Read the rest of this entry »
As the Arab people continue to exercise unarmed yet mighty power, there is one place above all others that remains at the heart of the struggle, Palestine. Despite all the money, propaganda, weapons, false imprisonment, ethnic cleansing, torture and mass-murder wielded against them, they have endured, and they remain, unmovable, they are the people of Palestine. This Global revolution will never be complete until Palestine is free, and in this moment in time, we can listen to those who call for “calm” and “restraint”, or we can listen to our hearts, use our heads, and carry on to the next and most obvious step in this revolution, Palestine.

Israel has intentionally dropped two large bombs on the AL-Qerem Medical Supplies Factory in Jabalya, Gaza. The building is totally destroyed, as was all of the medical supplies and equipement. Gaza is already in crisis mode for lack of medical supplies, this bombing will mean even the most basic of medical needs will continue to be impossible to satisfy. Read the rest of this entry »
January 12, 2011 is a day I will never forget, visiting the Samouni family could not possibly be anything but a life-changing event. Words simply cannot describe the devastation wrought upon this family by a marauding band of Israeli psychopaths, otherwise known as the Givati Brigade of the Israeli Defence Forces.
Today my team heard from mothers and fathers and children the story of the hell on Earth created by Operation Cast Lead. Twenty-nine people were killed in this family, children shot in front of parents, parents shot in front of children, a group of 97 in one home blasted to bits by rockets and mortars. Made to live amongst the mutilated and dead for several days, ambulances were kept away and some died slowly over hours and even days. Read More Here
(TJP) – Indeed as one comment has noted “this speech was originally given by Charlie Chaplin in 1940 when he did a mockery of Adolf Hitler.” Of course the context in which we use the words is very different, there is no manipulation, just a desire to see people rise up and shed off their dictators and exercise self-determination in any form the people choose, whether that be democracy or not.

(KenO’Keefe) – It is 5:30 pm here in Gaza and reports are coming in of 2 million in the streets in Cairo, over 2 million for their “1 Million March”. February 1 could still be the day that one brutal dictator flees the Middle East. But more important than one fleeing tyrant are the seeds that are being sown. If we nurture these Tunisian and Egyptian seed, identify the powers that be, hiding, conspiring, attempting to co-opt as they always do, we can end their game once and for all. Think about a world in which there are no secret negotiations like those revealed in the Palestine Papers. Think of a world in which “politicians” are replaced by representatives, real and genuine representatives, honouring the will of the people at all times. Why not? Read the rest of this entry »
Made on January 31, 2011, Ken O’Keefe pays tribute to the revolutionaries of Tunisia, Egypt, along with the global revolutionaries yet to be identified. “Governments should fear their people.!” Read the rest of this entry »
I have for many years lived with the knowledge that we, the masses, the working class, the poor, the white, the black, the brown, the immigrants, the Christians, the Muslims, the atheists, the soldiers/ex-soldiers, the peaceniks, the communists, the anarchists, the students, the people, across the spectrum, we all have a common cause. And yet, we have so tragically allowed ourselves to be duped, to be pitted against each other, fighting each other, finding a million ways to divide ourselves, or simply to be indifferent to each other. In this the tyrant’s smile, they laugh and they joke, about how complete their control over us is. They have been laughing for far too long. Read the rest of this entry »
After seeing passengers shot at close range they tried to grab the weapons to stop the killing. Kenneth Nichols O’Keefe was later beaten by the Israelis.
A US war veteran said yesterday he confronted Israeli commandos when they raided a Gaza-bound aid ship which he had boarded as a peace activist, Anatolia news agency reported.
Kenneth Nichols O’Keefe, his face bruised and still stained with blood, flew to Istanbul from Tel Aviv, on his way to Ireland, the report said.
“We overpowered three Israeli commandos. They looked at us… They thought we would kill them, but we let them go,” O’Keefe said, adding he took the weapon of one of the soldiers and emptied it, according to Anatolia.
The ex-marine said he saw five people being killed on board the Mavi Marmara. Read the rest of this entry »
