Ken O’Keefe reports from Gaza
March 28, 2011
Kevin Barrett catches up with Ken O’Keefe who is is in Gaza, where bombs have been falling constantly, unreported by the mainstream media. Ken is one of the bravest and most articulate activists of our time. Last year he helped defend the Mavi Marmara from an act of piracy by murderous Israeli commandos — and, after surviving the ordeal, gave one of the greatest-ever dissident-meets-mainstream-TV interviews, on BBC’s Hardtalk. He also participated in last year’s groundbreaking London Symposium uniting the 9/11 truth and pro-Palestine movements.

“The Rape of Palestine” offers an American’s perspective on the last four years of the systematic genocide taking place in Palestine. Cook provides an in depth analysis on the inhumane actions and policies of the Sharon and Olmert administrations as they defy the resolutions of the United Nations, the Geneva Accords, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice. William Cook analyzes the total lack of moral behavior that results from the Zionist imposition of their secular ideology that operates in consort with the Neo-Con operatives in the Bush Administration with the full support of AIPAC.
The name given to the attack by the IDF, “Operation Cast Lead,” says it all. When an army casts lead indiscriminately at a population, the underlying purpose is shock and awe, and the result is massacre. No amount of self-justifying verbiage – and there has been plenty of that – can minimize it. From the testimony provided by eyewitnesses and IDF combat soldiers, a massacre is exactly what happened. Followed by a blizzard of justifications, denial, obfuscation and outright lies, all of which Professor Norman Finkelstein carefully documents. Amnesty International called the attack “22 days of death and destruction.” The Israeli government called it justified.
In this extraordinary book, Alan Hart has succeeded in elucidating for us the immediate and long term dangers involved in the unconditional Western support for Zionism and its oppressive policies against the Palestinians.
