(SALEM, Ore.) - A special edition of BlogTalkRadio that aired today featured Bonnie King of Salem-News.com talking with Al Suarez about being on the road with Ken O'Keefe and his mother, Pat Johnson, upon his return to America from Europe following the Freedom Flotilla massacre to Gaza.

Ken is one of 600 activists aboard the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish flagged vessel, in a flotilla of ships designed break the siege of Gaza.

What sets him apart is the fact that he is the former U.S. Marine aboard the ship who fought Israeli invaders last May when they stormed the Flotilla with boats, helicopters, and plenty of live bullets.

Israel killed nine unarmed activists and wounded dozens of others. The shooting and killing continued for half an hour after after the white flag was raised, according to Kevin Niesh, who was also aboard the Mavi Marmara.

Al Suarez, host of the BlogTalkRadio program is a freelance journalist and human rights activist in support of the Palestinian cause with non-violence, "I want to make the American people aware of the truth, of the just cause of the Palestinians, as the American government has supported the Israeli occupation of 1967 lands of Palestine for too long."
