This is a Song Dedicated to the 34 Men Killed, and to the Survivors of the USS Liberty, Attacked by the Israeli’s on June 8, 1967.
by Debbie Menon
Yes, I know… Israel, Israel, Israel… it’s becoming tiresome, turning up Israel under every stone. But, there they are! More and more of this stuff, and stuff like this, are appearing everyday.
It is like Grace Halsell says it was, “what we did not know, and were shocked to learn….” But, finding out and telling about it, are horses of different colors, uphill battles, seldom won, which she describes as part of the problem and amongst those things we “did not know.”
[Vocalist – Songwriter : Catherine Faber aka Cat]
PLEASE CAN YOU TELL ME
NOW LIBERTY WAS A LONE SHIP, SOME CALLED HER A “SPOOK SHIP”
HER MEN SWORN TO SECRECY.
SHE SAILED IN INTERNATIONAL WATERS, OFF THE COAST OF SINAI,
INTO THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA.
WITH MANY HARD DAYS OF FULL SPEED AHEAD,
THERE WAS SOON A MUTUAL FEELING OF DREAD,
AS SHE APPROACHED THE ARAB/ISRAELI WAR ZONE.
AND THOUGH THE MEN WERE ALL TOGETHER, THEY KNEW THEY WERE ALL ALONE.
OH PLEASE CAN YOU TELL ME WHY SO MANY OF MY BROTHERS DIED.
WAS THIS SOME SORT OF GAME OF TREASON,
OR WAS THIS JUST SOME KIND OF HORRIBLE LIE?
WELL FINALLY BACK IN WASHINGTON, THEY SENT OUT A MESSAGE,
THAT THE SHIP MOVE FARTHER OUT TO SEA.
BUT THERE WERE TOO MANY ERRORS, AND TOO MUCH TIME WASTED;
THE BOMBS WERE COMING DOWN; IT WOULD BE TOO LATE—FOR THE LIBERTY.
OH PLEASE CAN YOU TELL ME WHY SO MANY OF MY BROTHERS DIED
WAS THIS SOME SORT OF GAME OF TREASON,
OR WAS IT JUST SOME KIND OF HORRIBLE LIE?
The most recent account in the book What I Saw That Day, is indeed a heartfelt account by Phil Tourney a survivor of the attack. Merlin Miller sums it best in his review at Amazon.com
“This heartfelt account, written by a survivor of the USS Liberty, is a page turner. The events that unfolded on June 8th, 1967 altered the course of history, yet are generally unknown to the American public. Israel attacked a defenseless US spy ship, intending to kill all aboard, and her act of betrayal was covered up by our own government and media. This book reveals the reasons behind this incredible conspiracy, as well as a riveting account of the horrors that day and how they have haunted the lives of the survivors and their loved ones. Many have spoken out about this outrageous act of war, but none so eloquently as Phil Tourney. This story should be made into a major motion picture, as the story has incredible drama with international implications. It is full of mystery, action, betrayals, and, most importantly, incredible acts of heroism and sacrifice. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and should be read by every patriot.”

A review of the USS Liberty story here explains a lot of how and why we have arrived at the state and conditions in which we currently find America and its governance!
Debbie Menon is an independent writer based in Dubai. Her main focus are the US-Mid- East Conflicts. Her writing has been featured in many print and online publications.
Her writing reflects the incredible resilience, almost superhuman steadfastness of the occupied and oppressed Palestinians, who are now facing the prospect of a final round of ethnic cleansing. She is committed to exposing Israel’s Lobbies’ control of ‘U.S. Middle East Policy. Control’ which amounts to treason by the Zionist lobbies in America and its stooges in Congress, and that guarantees there can never be a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only catastrophe for all, in the region and the world.
Her mission is to inform and educate internet viewers seeking unfiltered information about real events on issues of the US/Middle East conflicts that are unreported, underreported, or distorted in the American media. PS: For those of her detractors that think she is being selective and even “one-sided,” tough, that is the point of her work, to present an alternative view and interpretation of the US-Israel-Middle East conflict, that has been completely ignored in mainstream discourse.
The purpose is to look at the current reality from a different and critical perspective, not to simply rehash the pro-US/Israel perspective, smoke and mirrors that has been allowed to utterly and completely dominate Mainstream discourse.
