Born out of fear of nuclear mass destruction, the Peace Symbol has become an essential part of our Peace Movement. How was it created? Who did it? What was the moment of historical context in which this now well-known symbol was created?
gerald-herbert-holton_21feb1958-design_nuclear-disarmament_berkeley_59th_birthday_of_peace-symbol
It was Gerald Herbert Holten who created the Peace Symbol using navy semaphore flag signals as the basis for the design. The Peace Symbol was first used on February 21, 1958 in support of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in a march of 10,000 people from London to Aldermaston. Gerald Holten had been a conscientious objector during World War II. He was a graduate of the Royal College of Art.

Poet Arnie Passman and the Social Justice Committee of the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists invited poets, singer-songwriters, and comedians to celebrate the 59th Birthday of the Peace Symbol! The history of the birth of the “Band the Bomb” movement in the UK and the need for the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to be pressed forward are discussed.
hiroshima-ground-zero_us-army_berkeley-celebrates-peace_vic-sadotThe Berkeley Celebration of the 59th Birthday of the Peace Symbol was on “Presidents’ Day”, Monday, Feb 20, 2017. Veteran BFUU Social Justice Committee activist Cynthia Jean Johnson welcomed the small audience who came to Fellowship Hall on that rainy day.

The obligations of signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and the need for all nuclear countries to sign and participate, are explained in this video.
mordechai-vanunu_berkeley-celebrates-peace-symbol_vic-sadotThe gathering was fortunate to have a formidable poet like Frances L. Hillyard. Frances contributed several thought and emotion provoking poems, including poems about The Statue of Liberty; the view of a woman suffering the violence and turmoil in the city of Jenin in Palestine; a revolutionary salute to Mumia Abu Jamal; and the charming and hopeful “Dove of Light”. A separate 10 minute video of her performance has been posted!

The group has protest rallies outside the Japanese Consulate in San Francisco at 3 pm on the 11th of every month since the nuclear catastrophe first happened on March 11, 2011. Since March 11, 2017 will be the 6th anniversary of the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history there should be a larger than usual turn-out. What’s more is that the emergency is an ongoing radioactive disaster that continues to contaminate land, air, and sea, and continues to threaten all living creatures that depend on these elements of nature for sustenance.

During research Vic Sadot discovered Ahmed’s YouTube video, which lists a link to the Facebook Photography Page of Ahmed Alomaryjenin-palestine_farmes-bale-hay-in-fields_ahmed-alomary-screenshotAhmed responded affirmatively to a request for permission to take some screenshots from his video, saying that he would be pleased that people would be made more aware of what is really happening in Palestine. Here is the link to his vignette of images of the beautiful aspects of the city under pressure from the Apartheid supremacist regime following a plan for long-term expansion that involves the dispossession and subjugation of the Palestinians. jenin-palestine-city-lights_ahmed-alomary-screenshotJenin Palestine (2:39) Ahmed ALomary YouTube & Photos All Rights Reserved. photos from jenin palestine with background music naseer shamma palestinian heritage.

Ahmed Alomary manages to capture the beauty in the city and countryside around Jenin. But the Zionist expansion is constantly pressing into their territories with colonizers who are euphemistically called “settlers”. And the IDF is always nearby to enforce “The Law In These Parts” (An Israeli film that was screened at the annual Jewish Film Festival in Berkeley, California).

Henry Knorr at the open mic during the Q&A session on Feb 16, 2017 in Berkeley

Henry Knorr Defends Alison Weir from JVP Attacks on Voices in the Middle East on KPFA Pacifica Radio. Move the bar forward to the 38:00 minute mark to hear Henry Knorr, who is an American Jewish Bay Area activist against the 6 decade Apartheid Occupation of Palestine. He is also a member of JVP.  He calls it a “demonization campaign” against Alison Weir and IfAmericanKnew dot org. He also admires Alison for “not just talking to the choir”. He is disgusted with the secret dossier compiled on her, and how an umbrella group named The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation of Palestine was led to expel her due to the slander campaign. The real problem is that she stands against Zionism as a supremacist political ideology. He talks about her book Against Our Better Judgment about the Israel Lobby and how it is based to a large degree on academic histories by Jewish historians, thoroughly documented, “not kooky stuff” he asserts from years of study and activism on his own part. alisonweir-book-cover_alison-speaking

John Lennon Birthday Speakout Against Facebook Censorship Livestream Video

“Imagine A Day Without Censorship” Speakout At Facebook Zuckerberg’s SF Mansion (41:16) Labor Video YouTube Channel

Labor Video Labor Video John Lennon Birthday SpeakoutPublished Note on Oct 11, 2016: On John Lennon’s birthday October 9, 2016, a rally sponsored by LaborNet.org was held outside the San Francisco mansion of billionaire Mark Zuckerberg the owner of Facebook to protest the censorship and privatization of the internet. Participants discussed Zuckerberg’s agreement with the apartheid Israeli government and Netanyahu to censor the internet with critical content of the Israeli government. Facebook is also censoring live streaming from Standing Rock Native American pipeline protesters and Kurdish activists. * See the list of links documenting the citations of censorship or spying provided in the description box for this video.

International Labor Media Published Note on Oct 9, 2016: “In front of Mark Zuckerberg’s San Francisco mansion, protesting Facebook censorship of Palestinian reporters and more. Oct. 9, 2016.”

Amidst the general call for the creation of a Commons Free Speech Public Space on the Internet, there were those who stepped forth to voice more specific charges of censorship at the John Lennon’s Birthday Speak Out Against Facebook Censorship on Sunday, Oct 9, 2016 outside a Zuckerberg mansion in San Francisco, CA. ILM is the “International Labor Media” channel.

Steve Zeltzer at one of the Zuckerberg Bay Area mansions at the John Lennon’s Birthday Speakout Against Facebook Censorship on Oct 9, 2016 in San Francisco, California.

Steve Zeltzer of Labor Video says (4:28 – 4:58) that Zuckerberg’s “power over over a billion people who are now on Facebook is being used to control political debate and dissent. We believe that this is wrong. In fact, he met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and signed an agreement saying that he would work with the Israeli government to censor critical comments against the Apartheid regime of Israel, of the Zionist regime. If Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg want to be political appendages of the  Israeli government, that  obviously their choice. But they will have to pay politically for that, and everyone needs to know what they are doing.”

facebook-privacy413x310

“The other thing is the issue of spying because people who use Facebook put their personal names, their personal information on Facebook and he has access to it, which means the US government has access to it. So people have to be aware of that.” Zeltzer describes the global reach of Zuckerberg using Brazil as an example. He purchased the domain name “internet.com”. Tech barons want the internet to be privately owned explains Steve Zeltzer. “We need municipal WiFi free public internet.

Zeltzer refers to John Lennon’s Birthday in saying, “Imagine a day without censorship! Imagine a world without censorship!” (10:05 – 10:45)  “What the supporters of Zionism and the Apartheid regime in Israel want to do is they want to pass laws in the United States saying that you cannot boycott Israel because that’s ‘anti-Semitism’… Now this is a canard that is used against people to basically accuse people who are critical of the policies of Israel of being anti-Semitic. And this is a very reactionary dangerous kind of position. So, in New York Gov. Cuomo passed such a resolution. In California Gov. Brown signed such a resolution. We’re saying this is outrageous! People have the right to boycott.”

woman-speaker_ilm-live-stream-facebook-censorship_johnlennonb-dayspeakout_10-09-16_berkeley-calling-blog_gimmesometruth_vicsadot-screenshot

A woman speaks (12:50 – 13:08), “If we were to look at the history of Boycotting, Sanctions, Divestment movement within the U.S., it was successfully used to bring down the Apartheid South African regime. So at that time was that equated with being anti-White or Anti-Dutch?” She also cites Facebook for not allowing a livestream of the arrests at the Native American resistance at Standing Rock to protect their water rights against the proposed Dakota Access Oil Pipeline across their land. This woman speaker also cites the experience of having Green Party Jill Stein posts banned from being posted on Facebook. (This happened to me while trying to post to Facebook groups in which I am a member! VRS) The Woman’s Free Gaza Flotilla to end the blockade of Gaza was intercepted illegally in international waters, but that has been blocked out of the American corporate-government press, not just on Facebook.

The next speaker, the man with the “From Vietnam to Palestine Facebook/Zuckerberg Censoring History” sign, (21:18 -32:22) was concerned with how private property ownership of public forums like Facebook is part of the general elimination of the public common space for public expression. He focused on the recent role of Facebook in Turkey during an attempted coup where suppression of freedom of speech was openly done in the name of restoring order with emergency decrees. Journalists were beaten by police and dragged by the hair to jail when TV stations were shut down without any news coverage by the compliant complicit western media. Facebook “respects” the Turkish Anti-Terrorism Law, “which in Turkey it means that if you show the army killing civilians, that’s a terrorist act… Facebook goes along with this and shuts down the pages. As we have seen, in the last 10 days when Palestinian journalists try to show their opinion immediately Facebook has stepped in and shut it down.”

facebook-censor-1024x535
Steve Zeltzer comes back into the soundtrack around 39:33 to sum up the censorship  situation. Zuckerberg’s support for attacks on public education and on teachers’ unions reveals his ruling class politics. The people want genuine democracy, not the private ownership and public censorship and spying that we are getting on Facebook!

Singer-Songwriter Berkeley Activist Vic Sadot Guest Co-Hosts with Professor Kevin J. Barrett, author of “We Are Not Charlie Hebdo”, “Another French False Flag”, and the forthcoming “Orlando False Flag: A Clash of Histories”

Vic Sadot Guest Co-Hosts with Kevin J. Barrett. Vic was filling in for Professor Antonius “Tony” J Hall, Editor-in-Chief of the American Herald Tribune, and author of “Earth Into Property”; and Professor James H. Fetzer, Emeritus U-MN in Philosophy, both away on sabbatical studies and projects. Kevin Barrett announced the forthcoming release of a new book to be titled “Orlando False Flag”, and he asked the audience to let him know which of the two covers shown above they prefered. Vic Sadot picked the one on the left by David Dees, whose controversial art Vic has used in many of his music videos. Dees has a new full color book out titled “The Political Art of David Dees”.

More than 33 stories were covered with short pithy commentary. The links to those stories are listed in the description box for this show at No Lies Radio: Istanbul Turkey Terror Attack at Ataturk Airport had many advance warnings fro Turkish intelligence

The co-hosts discussed the necessity of applying the same basic questions to the Orlando Pulse Night Club as required for such crimes  as well as a keen study of anomalies, impossibilities, and interviews of victims. One of the things that happens regularly on False Flag Weekly News is comparison with facts discovered from researching past suspect events. It was noted that many Sandy Hook School alleged victim family members from Newtown, Connecticut went on TV and other media for interviews without showing much emotion. Just as the corporate media and investigators skipped much of the required research, the family members were disturbingly skipping the normal grieving process, and rushing to put up fundraising sites. Was this a way to launder money to them? Also, they pitched a political message attacking the Second Amendment Rights to disarm US citizens who played no role in the alleged attacks. This is happening in a post 9/11 era where the state security apparatus is always given more money and power when they fail, and as the state pushes to militarize local police as part of the “Homeland Security” program. Oddly, a contingent of Sandy Hook families had VIP seats at the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15, 2013. And the event turned into a Martial Law Drill with 10,000 troops entering people’s homes to search for one 19 year old who was accused of the crime by Jeff Bauman and a guy named Danny. See Russ Baker at Who, What, Why for excellent research on these matters. See Russ Baker’s Don’t Rush to Judgement in Orlando Shooting (22:06) Published on Jun 17, 2016 at WhoWhatWhy Org YouTube. The Fourth Amendment rights enumerated in the US Constitution for American citizens to be secure in their houses and property were violated for thousands of Boston citizens.

One of several news stories about the Orlando event was titled “Boston Crisis Actors Visit Orlando Crisis Actors in the Hospital”. It is legitimate to ask why the alleged Boston “victims” would visit the alleged Orlando alleged “victims” in a manner to draw massive publicity to drive the narrative that the US is under “terrorist” attacks in a more frequent accelerated pace under Obama compared to all Presidents before him. Why are there always drills that seem to go live? You do not want to be near a drill at a mass gathering when simple security is all that is needed. In numerous cases, the alleged “victims” not only skip the grieving process, but they also skip the physical healing process in ways that only be called “miraculous”.

Peekay Boston is an Australian comedic commentator who created an 11:30 video titled “Surely This Is Normal… Or Is It??” at Peekay Boston YouTube Channel. (11:30) Peekay Boston says, “Jeff Bauman a Great American Hero… How can Anyone say that what we see in the Iconic Boston photo of him in a wheelchair is Not Normal?” Bauman not only lost two legs. He also got “hero” status when he identified the two Tsarnaev brothers to the FBI as the “terrorist” bombers! The other “hero” was the Cowboy Hat wearing Carlos Arredondo, who rescued Bauman by breaking all standard medical protocols by putting Bauman in a wheel-chair instead of flat out on a stretcher with legs raised and tourniqueted to reduce blood loss. Why did the many trained doctors and nurses who participate in the annual Boston Marathon “Mass Casualty Drill” not rescue Bauman properly if it was indeed real and not the annual drill done with “unwitting participants” gone live? How does breaking the protocols make you a hero instead of the subject of a lawsuit? Why did the huge number of medical professionals and ambulances available and participating in the annual drill not rescue Bauman? Is that normal? The fact that Jeff Bauman was released from the hospital just 11 days after allegedly losing two legs, and the fact that he was fully recovered 19 days later, smiling and waving the flag at the Boston Bruins hocky game is, well, “NORMAL” in post-9/11 America! In an interview Bauman even explained his miraculous and rapid recovery to his being part of the PR campaign called “Boston Strong”. He answered that his doctors said he was a ‘wolverine’.” Yet Dr. Stan Monteith, a doctor  who has performed amputations and who can also think critically, is quoted in this video as saying none of this is “normal”. Dr. Monteith concludes, “I think that this young man was a ‘crisis actor’.” The alleged mother at the Olando alleged shooting massacre named Christine did a TV spot the night of the shootings and was talking about doing something about the assault weapons instead of being at the hospital or the morgue to find out the fate of her alleged son. A couple days later she is beaming a smile and holding hands with Anderson Cooper in the way we witnessed during the Christmas TV scenes from Sandy Hook and from happily “grieving ” parents and children at other recent events. It’s tabloid soap opera “news”. Meanwhile TPP is secretly being formulated, drones are wiping out children in foreign villages, elections are being “fixed”, proxy armies hooked on amphatamines and wahhabist religion are destroying Israel’s neighbors, and NATO is amassing troops and missiles all around Russia.

Judge Napalotano’s revelation that nobody died until the Swat Team went into the Pulse Night Club after several hours waiting outside contradicts the story told by the witnesses who went on TV right away to tell the story of the scene of carnage they saw. Oddly they showed no signs of trauma or PTSD for having gone through an event they described as “horrific”.

Judge-Andrew-Napolitano_Fox-News_witness-police-reports-contradict_FFWN-NLR_7-01-16-screenshot-vic-sadot

The New York Times used the “false flag” terminology last week, which is rare. But it mocks critical thinkers as “conspiracy theorists” for asking the standard questions that come quite naturally before you even come up with any theory at all. All journalists, detectives, and citizens must always ask of every violent criminal event: who? what why? how? means? motive? opportunity? who benefits? how? how much? who suffers? how? how much? But the goal of psychological operations is to get you to react emotionally and to implant a story before you do the rational processing. It’s called “trauma-based conditioning”… and the manipulation of that cognitive imprinting.

In spite of some flippant comments on Private Manning’s openly stated gender choice, and some uncomfortable Islamic positioning by Kevin Barrett, Vic Sadot stood up for war crimes whistle-blower Private Chelsea Manning by explaining that he respected her for her stand against war crimes, and that he felt strongly enough about it that he had changed the gender of his support song for Manning out of respect for her telling the truth about the war crimes of the Corporate Empire. See Courage To Resist – Free Chelsea Manning at Truth Troubadour YouTube. She is serving a prison sentence of 35 years and the Organization called “Courage To Resist” is working on a legal appeal and on galvanizing popular support for Manning. Vic read a quote from Chelsea Manning’s Warning Statement on the Orlando Pulse Night Club media event that was published in The Guardian (UK) June 13, 2016: “An attack like this is carefully planned and executed to maximize attention by inflaming the passions of a helpless public. Because of this, the response can be more dangerous than the attack. The refrains of “safety and security” have, for many years, been used as a tool by the powerful to justify curtailing civil liberties and emboldening backlash against immigrants, Muslim people and others”.

As part of a story on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France being closed, Vic took the opportunity to mention the SF Solidarity with French Workers action at the SF French Consulate; The use of “terrorism” by President Francois Hollande and Prime Minister Manuel Valls to issue sweeping executive decrees to wipe out workers’ hard won rights and benefits when the austerity measures cannot be passed in the French National Assembly…

Senator John McCain’s 2016 Republican Party primary opponent, former state Senator Dr. Kelli Ward, bluntly accused McCain, President Barrack Obama, and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of creating ISIS, and she blamed McCain for treason by declaring that his support for the Islamic State was getting Americans killed: “Arizona needs a Senator who represents Arizona, not ISIS!” Similarly a New York Times reporter named Mark Mazetti wrote that black market CIA arms for the US-Israel-Saudi-NATO mercenary proxy army in Syria was getting Americans killed.

Kevin Barrett cited an Los Angeles Times article and interpreted that the Settlement announced by Presidents Erdogan of Turkey and Netanyahu of Israel betrays Mavi Marmara Gaza Freedom Flotilla crew members killed in International waters by Israeli commandos. The co-hosts said they were eager to hear what Ken O’Keefe had to say since he was sailing on that ship in the Gaza Freedom Flotilla attempt to break the blockade of the people being collectively punished in the Gaza strip of Occupied Palestine.

Discussion of Washington Post article on Jewish Voice for Peace leader Rebecca Vilkomerson’s call to boycott Israel. Kevin and Vic discussed some of the Anti-Apartheid Occupation groups’ infighting over Gilad Atzmon, Ken O’Keefe, Alison Weir, and others for taking a more strident and independent view than the Jewish-led pro BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) group regarding the seemingly endless occupation of Palestine due to US support. Vic mentioned Alison Weir’s new book “Against Our Better Judgment”;. She is the founder of an organization called “If Americans Knew”. Alison Weir recently had some critical exchanges with JVP. Vic commended JVP and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters for their new film “The Occupation of the American Mind” (Vic wrote 2 different positive but critical reviews in Berkeley Calling & Truth Troubadour Blogs). Click on the photo of Ken O’Keefe to hear his testimony after being beaten by Israeli commandos for disarming two of them who boarded and murdered Turkish citizens on the Mavri Marmara ship partipating in the Free Gaza Flotilla to end the blockade of Gaza.

Israeli Intelligence Chief makes public statement that the defeat of ISIS in Syria with Russian help would not be good for Israel; Brexit and what it means to have the British people to vote to leave the super-imposed unaccountable bureaucracy headquartered in Brussels, Belgium known as the EU (European Union).

Discussion moved to the 2016 Election and corporate media attention focused on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. One story by J C Collins in Philosophy of Metrics Blog was about how Rothschild money had saved Trump from bankruptcy during his foray into crime-related gambling casinos, thus making him beholden for his subsequent “success” story. A recent Trump speech was cited for its severe critique of Clinton that is likely to be popularly received. A 2013 Trump Endorsement of Zionist Likud Party President Netanyahu is little known because it was only run in Israel. Watch the 34 second clip on YouTube!

The American Jewish paper Forward ran an article titled “Elizabeth Warren Is the Surprising Israel Hawk on Hillary Clinton’s Vice Presidential Shortlist”. The author mocked Bernie Sanders supporters saying: “Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts senator and liberal champion. Warren would be the natural pick to win over supporters of another progressive Democratic icon – Vermont senator Bernie Sanders. The Bernie or Bust crowd, who are still uncomfortable with Clinton, may find Warren’s positions on social and economic issues just as exciting as Sanders’s. But on Israel they disagree. Sanders made a point of challenging the party line by criticizing Israeli policies and demanding a Democratic platform that recognizes Palestinian rights; Warren chose to challenge progressives with a strong pro-Israel stance, much closer to that of the Democratic establishment…”. The pro-war and pro Israel positions of all major party Presidential candidates may not be well-known, particularly in the case of allegedly “progressive” Democrats like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Sanders played to his base by not attending the AIPAC convention, and this drew criticism from Warren.

Third Parties making progress with so much loss of credibility in the two monopoly parties that have a private corporation set up to run Presidential debates with rules that exclude candidates from other major American political parties. Kevin pointed to an article in the Indianapolis Star about Libertarian Presidential candidate and former Governor Gary Johnson polling higher than in past elections.The article said Johnson got an astounding 10% in a recent national poll, and reported: “He called for the legalization of marijuana, term limits for politicians, free markets, fewer regulations on small businesses, a less interventionist military philosophy, reform of Social Security that includes means testing and a raised retirement age, and a replacement of the current tax structure with a flat consumption tax. “If you do away with the corporate tax,” he said, “you will issue pink slips to 80 percent of the lobbyists in Washington.”

Vic Sadot, a Green Party member since 2007, pointed out that Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein and VP candidate Honkala were arrested in 2012 when they demanded the right to participate in the 2012 US Presidential Debate at Hoftra University on Long Island, New York. Not only were they arrested, but they were handcuffed to metal chairs for 8 grueling hours. Vic challenged Democratic party members who claim that the Green Party acts as a “spoiler” of their corporate pro-war candidates. He challenged Democrats to help stop this kind of treatment of other popular American Presidential candidates, saying: “All you Democrats gotta deal with that! When you say “Oh you guys are spoilers… No! You guys are spoiling democracy”. Vic Sadot met Jill Stein in person at the Berkeley Post Office on June 3, 2016, and he encouraged her to make “Torture Accountability” a major 2016 election issue and to join the BORDC (Bill of Rights Defense Committee) campaign to demand the release of all 6,500 pages of the 2014 Senate Torture Report. Only a 500 page summary has been released to the public, and it effectively repudiates the 2004 9/11 Commission Report written by Philip Zelikow. Washington’s Blog brilliantly and logically explains why this should be important to everyone, especially the genuine 9/11 Truth & Justice Movement.  Based on Washington’s Blog, Vic explained  that the 500 page summary of the Senate Report on US Torture absolves some key people, such as Abu Zubaydah, who confessed under tortue to all manner of things he did not do, and such “testimony” was made central to the “official conspiracy theory” story about 19 Arabs led by a former CIA asset named Osama bin Laden. And that mythology was used to make foreign and domestic policy for the last 15 years! The US has built magnificent museums to sanctify that story!

In the “Good News” department, the FFWN Co-Hosts noted that a Former Chilean Military Officer during Pinochet Coup Was Found Guilty in Florida for the Murder of legendary Chilean folk singer Victor Jara. The civil law suit was won by California-based Center for Justice & Accountability.

Other stories discussed were the following: A CBS News report on a 91 year old Pennsylvania man who lectured school groups about his experience at the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp. He was exposed to be a Holocaust Hoaxer and apologized for having only been a tourist there after WWII. A Recreational Cannibis Legalization Referendum got sufficient signatures to be on California Nov 2016 election ballot according to the San Francisco Gate. The same measure failed in 2010. Medicinal marijuana is already legalized and providing taxes to local communities. Near the end of the 59 minute show Vic plugged some of his most recent blogs at Berkeley Calling Blog: USS Liberty Vet Don Pageler spoke in Historic Fellowship Hall in Berkeley, CA on June 25, 2016 about the attack on the USS Liberty by Israel on June 8, 1967; SF Solidarity with French Workers 6-14-16;  A Review of the Documentary Film & the BDS Movement titled “The Occupation of the American Mind”; and Vic Sadot Launches IndieGoGo CD Fundraiser for a CD to be titled “Truth Troubadour” 6-24-16.

Ken-O'Keefe_RT_1280x720

Ken O’Keefe’s original marine conservation work has been somewhat overshadowed by his non-violent, but fully confrontational work for human rights. He is an ex-US marine and Gulf War Veteran, who formally renounced his US citizenship in 2001. O’ Keefe’s activities to date include founding Human Shield Action to Iraq (2003), serving as a captain on the first Free Gaza Mission (2008), surviving an Israeli attack on the ship Mavi Marmara (2010) and becoming Social Enterprise Managing Director of Aloha Palestine CIC and the Samouni Project.O’ Keefe is a published author and lecturer who now holds Irish, Hawaiian and Palestinian citizenship, but his ultimate allegiance is to his ‘entire human family’ and ‘Planet Earth’. His style of activism is characterised by his involvement in disarming two Israeli commandos as nine of his fellow Mavi Marmara passengers were executed. The Israeli military later claimed O’Keefe was a “terrorist operative of Hamas”. O’Keefe has repeatedly stated that Israeli Mossad and its assets, along with traitorous elements within the US, are directly responsible for the ‘false flag’ 9/11 attacks.
