“The Sixth Fleet cannot guarantee the security of S/V Liberty. Sixth Fleet recommends that if S/V Liberty is concerned about its safety and security that it should return to its point of origin.” This is the sick and cowardly statement a spokesperson for the U.S. Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean gave to an American citizen and sailor, Larry Toenjes, who sailed 8,000 miles to pay respect to the two U.S. Marines and 32 U.S. sailors who were murdered by the terrorist Jewish state of Israel during their cowardly and repeated attacks on the U.S.S. Liberty on June 8, 1967!
This gutless U.S. military policy not to confront the Israeli owners of U.S. politicians, even when the well-being of an American citizen is in danger, is nothing new. In fact, it’s simply the continuation of the same disgusting policy Lyndon Johnson set in motion on that terrible day in June 1967. While the U.S.S. Liberty was under Israeli attack, the crew managed to get a message out to the Sixth Fleet that they were under attack and needed assistance. The Sixth Fleet launched American fighter jets to shoot down the Israeli terrorists to protect the Liberty and her American
crew, but L.B.J. ordered the jets back to their carrier. This treasonous act by Johnson has become the status quo for the political whores of both parties in Congress and the White House ever since.
The Israelis and their puppets in the U.S. Congress and White House lied to the American people about the deadly attacks on the Liberty; they all claim it was an accident! Even though the Liberty was under repeated attacks from both the air and sea, these soulless liars and cowards continue to insist it was all just an accident.
To help make the point that it was not an accident, and that Israel and its stooges in Washington are liars, all we need to do is compare it to a real accidental attack on an American ship. That ship is the U.S.S. Stark which in 1987 was hit by two Iraqi missiles fired within minutes of each other by a solitary Iraqi fighter jet. The Iraqi pilot fired them in error, thinking the American ship was actually an Iranian ship during the Iraq-Iran war. The attack lasted less than five minutes, while the Israeli attack on the Liberty lasted about two hours. And the Iraqi attack involved a single plane while the Israeli attack involved multiple planes as well as multiple torpedo boats.
An interesting book on this covered up topic is Assault on the Liberty, by James M. Ennes, Jr. Mr. Ennes is a survivor of the Israeli attack on the Liberty.
Israel is the enemy of progress and peace. In fact, there is no word in ancient Hebrew for “progress” as is made clear by the founding war pig of the neoconservative movement, Leo Strauss. And we need to remember Israel would not even be able to exist without the aiding and abetting by treasonous U.S. politicians from both the left and the right who take BILLIONS of U.S. tax-payer dollars and give it to the Jewish state every year.
Americans must ask themselves why they are paying taxes for a huge and powerful military when that military is used to fight Israel’s battles and refuses to protect American citizens.
