Truth with Transparency Reveals Hidden Agendas

Ken O'Keefe's Trade Not Aid Mission for Palestine was derailed by once-allies in the fight for equality and freedom. Now they are known as the hijackers.

(LONDON) - I picked up most of my stolen property from the police yesterday, 3 months of having nearly all of my hard drives, my phone, my camera, reams of paperwork, what is the result? Nothing but the disruption of the Trade Not Aid Mission and a bit more fuel to slander me. And that is the point really, to disrupt anything meaningful for Palestine.

The fact that I am being attacked is not the issue, it is about leaving the Palestinians to rot and disuading others from meaningfully supporting our brothers and sisters in Palestine.

The police and the hijacking crew are 100% partners in this agenda and they are trying to stop me from sharing my blog post picturing the hijackers and revealing the truth about these traitors. The bottom line is I refuse to bow to anyone, and certainly not the pathetic, corrupt police involved in this farcical 'investigation' or the hijackers. The more they attempt to shut me down, the more fuel they provide for me to expose them more.

I know for a fact that this message will be forwarded to the police and soon I will print emails I have sent to the main 'investigator' cop. These emails have me telling this minion in no uncertain terms that I have no fear of him or the tyrants he serves. I have told him to his face that he is a sorry little man akin to a Nazi 'just following orders'. Whether I am charged with a crime or not makes no difference to me, I am ready, bring it on.

I do not respond well to harassment and threats, from anyone, the threat of jail or even death is inherent in my path and I accepted this long ago. The truth is that nothing motivates me more then injustice, and when I am getting a dose of it directly I feel the deepest motivation of all.

If my brothers and sisters in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan and all occupied lands can square up the demons who are raping and pillaging with no fear, then the least I can do is face these sorry lot in the UK square on and tell them straight up who they are.

Ken O'Keefe and Lauren Booth will be speaking at the University of Westminster on February 17, 2012.
"I will make my standard guarantee that what I have to say will not be boring," Ken said. "For what it's worth, this could be my last speaking engagement in the UK for quite a long time. The event is being organised by The Union of Palestinian Students and Palestine Solidarity Society, please share this far and wide and if possible, come down to the event."

So the minions have achieved a delay of Trade Not Aid Mission, but the unintended results of this is that I have developed greater partnerships and expanded the reach of the mission with real deal people who can see what is happening.

When the 2nd Freedom Flotilla was sabotaged by Israel and corrupt governments everyone knew what was happening. Soon, those who care will know the tremendous power of the Trade Not Aid Mission and why the UK government and police minions are doing their part to serve the Zionist Project... by attempting to destroy the mission and working with the hijackers to make some bullshit 'aid' mission instead.

If the truth be known, just about the last thing the Palestinians in Gaza want is another aid mission, the aid missions are not ending their status of having to live like beggars, in fact it strengthening it. The truth is countless Palestinians are sick of the convoys that have changed nothing, they do not advertise this fact because they do not want to seem ungrateful, but I have been told this over and over. 'Aid' is not the answer.

Despite the massive effort to destroy my mission, the Samouni Educational Program will be online very soon, thus the over 100 kids of the Samouni family will finally get the education they deserve. The hijackers and the police have managed to prevent me from getting all the donated goods intended for the Samouni classroom to Gaza, but they are going to fail to stop the program itself.

Know this, the hijackers are beginning to feel the wrath of the truth that exposes them for who they are and what they serve, and it is this blog post and other information yet to be released which is most damning of all for them. Believe me when I say I will gladly go to jail before I stop posting and exposing the servile elements within the police and the hijacking crew and I tell you now that I have every intention of going after the police for false arrest and other charges.

I am all but daring them to charge me and jail me because the accusation used to steal my property and violate my rights is so transparently and provable false it will only make my mission THAT MUCH STRONGER.

I understand this game very well, and fear is the main tool these bastards use to extinguish the spirit of humanity within us. Shed the fear and you will know the greatest blessings of all. I also understand just how corrupt and fraudulent the so-called 'justice system' is, so I expect no favour ever in this system. It is the ability to publish the truth and share it far and wide that I put greatest stock in. I already have what I need in place so that even if I am in jail, these bastards will be exposed.

The truth is our ally and it is THE WAY to liberation. Get ready for a heavy dose of truth regarding this whole sordid affair. If you want to support me and/or my causes, then share this post far and wide. Know that sharing this post is a spit in the face to the tyrants and their minions.

Ken O'Keefe is a former U.S. Marine who served in the 1991 Gulf War and subsequently spoke out about the use of depleted uranium as a "crime against humanity" and the US military using soldiers as "human guinea pigs" with experimental drugs that were directly linked to Gulf War syndrome. He is also a social entrepreneur utilizing direct action marine conservation, he is more widely known for leading the human shield action to Iraq and as a survivor of the Israeli attack on the MV Mavi Marmara in which he participated in "defending the ship" and "disarming two Israeli Commandos". On January 7, 2004, O'Keefe burned his US passport in protest of "American Imperialism" and called for US troops to immediately withdrawal from Iraq. He replaced his US passport with a "World Passport", subsequently proclaiming himself a "Citizen of the World" with “ultimate allegiance to my entire human family and to planet Earth."

Sadly, the issue of spurious claims against Ken, the hijacking of the mission, itself, and the harassment and hardship Ken and those close to him have had to endure have all taken precious time away from the Palestinian people who, as I have been told directly, have great regard for the help he has previously provided, the love and support they have felt from him on a most personal note, the respect he has demonstrated toward them (which clearly shows in his understanding that trade is more an answer than aid will ever be), the tireless effort he has extended on their behalf, the danger he has placed himself in on their behalf, the spirit he has brought with him with each visit and the spirit he has imbued in them during those visits. If I have heard anything remotely negative, it would be a comment about his having a big head... in context, it was stated with an understanding that little would ever happen without an above average image being presented. Coming from a rather radical background, I understand that completely and in many ways admire him for it. Were I younger and not such a physical mess, I would not hesitate to follow in his path (and maybe butt heads at times). I consider Ken to be my brother in many ways and I both admire and commend him for all he has done and for those efforts made which he now struggles against an insidious evil to see through to completion. I, for one, will be spreading this article along with my personal thoughts wherever I can. I have some very close people in the UK who also support Ken's work and hold him in deeply felt respect (One, I add, is my Habibti and with whom I often converse regarding Ken and his work). Having communicated with Ken regarding these unfortunate issues, I am confident he places a proper balance between dealing with the infidels and carrying on his valuable work. I have a great deal of positive comments regarding Ken and always speak highly of him, yet, I do not think of him as the Saviour Ken or any other mystical or mythical paladin. He is my brother, a human with strong convictions and a willingness and compassion that compels him to act against one of the greatest injustices of our time in the manner he knows best. Others of us work in those ways which best reflect who we are and what compels us. We all make mistakes and hopefully learn from them. Ken, whose actions take him into limelight, is destined to be attacked and assaulted by the bitter and the profane, by those who wrongly feel slighted by his recognition, fail to understand the rather meaningless hype that so often befalls individuals who act within the arena he presents, and those who have as a genuine agenda the political assassination of him and thus the destruction of his ability to continue his deeply regarded work. All of us take heat from somewhere at times, if only from some "anonymous" writer who wishes to demean our work, sensibilities and daring to strike argument against common misperceptions and purposeful misdirections. So, Ken, keep on keepin on and glowing...and may the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you and the good light within you guide you all the way on...

TJP, Brother!

No one man has accomplished as much for Gaza as Ken O'Keefe. He even lived for six months in Gaza when he delivered the last convoy he took there. Amid shootings, bombings and watching the suffering of little children he stayed to lend his support to the people of Gaza. He has raised the profile of their plight when mainstream media has shied away from the subject by bowing to their zionist publishing masters. Let us all band together and Free Gaza. Thank you Ken. I look forward to the starting of TRADE NOT AID, as the proud people of Palestine get back to work once again. All over the Middle East I witnessed these educated and smart people of Palestine managing companies. Let them have the means to rebuild their country and they will do it. Thank you and God Speed You in your good work Ken.
