I received this nonsensical email from the "Free Palestine" movement.:
On June 8th, 1967, with cold-blooded mass murder as the objective,  Israeli warplanes and warships made every effort to sink the USS Liberty, a mostly unarmed US intelligence vessel off the coast of Gaza, and to kill all 294 on board. Thanks only to the heroism of the Liberty crew and possibly a Soviet vessel's offer of assistance (refused), the attack was called off before completion, although the attackers had plenty of reason to think that the sea would do the rest of the job for them.
Twice, US warplanes from the US Sixth Fleet responded to distress calls from the Liberty, only to be recalled  by direct order of the White House and the US Department of Defense.  In retrospect, it is clear that Lyndon Johnson and Robert McNamara in turn got their orders from the Israel Lobby and the Israeli leadership.  34 were killed and 174 wounded, with many permanently disabled.
The subsequent coverup, the suppression of investigation, the falsification of evidence, the manipulation of history and the denial of justice to loyal US servicemen on board is now well documented and readily available to all who wish to see (which many do not). Nevertheless, the attack continues to this day, with Israeli and US resources devoted to maintaining a variety of false and often conflicting narratives to hide the truth.
Of course, Israel's attack on liberty itself goes far beyond this one incident, however outrageous, arrogant, blatant and hideous it may be.  Israel's owes its very existence to Plan D, a detailed and carefully prepared military strategy for depopulating Palestine of its non-immigrant Palestinian population and replacing it with immigrants in order to create a majority (and ultimately exclusive) Jewish state, according to a racist agenda.  Since late 1947 (and even before) and up to the present, Palestinians have had and are still having many Liberty incidents, without benefit of a Sixth Fleet, recalled or not.  It is clearly Israel's intention to continue until there are no Palestinians left in Palestine.
Liberty assaults are continuing in the US and other powerful countries, as well, as Israel and its Zionist interests in these countries wield sufficient power on their governments to bend military and political power to their ends.  Thus it is no accident that US and western might has been used to destroy Israel's potential enemies and rivals in the region, such as Iraq, Libya and Syria, and to bring to heel others, such as Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the Gulf monarchies. The people of half the world are paying the price for Israel's ambitions, not least in countries like the US, whose military budgets swallow funds for infrastructure, health, and education, and create an ongoing supply of shattered veterans who are neglected by the very government they served.
But millions of people that have also been killed and tens of millions made refugees in the wars for Israel, for the purpose of weakening Israel's enemies, enabling Israel's capture of territory, the ongoing ethnic cleansing of populations that Israel considers undesirable, and confiscation of resources.  By allying itself with the most destructive elements in the US and other countries it wishes to influence and manipulate, Israel is able to multiply its destructive capability far beyond its own borders.
We are all Palestinians.  Israel is crushing us all, robbing us of our resources, our livelihood and our liberty.  Fifty years on, let us remember and honor the crew of the USS Liberty, who paid a high price for liberty, never receiving proper remuneration. Let us also remind ourselves that we continue to pay this price.
I love how the article starts off pretending to defend US armed forces in the USS Liberty and ends off saying that the US military and its allies is just a tool of the evil Zionists who are responsible for millions of deaths worldwide.

This is barely disguised classic antisemitism. It is good to know that the leftist supporters of Palestinians are so blatant in their hate.





We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
