JEA: Dr. Chuck Baldwin is right on target again. Israel has been occupying much of Palestine for the better part of fifty years. Perhaps it’s high time for politicians in the US to say enough is enough.

Chuck Baldwin

Mehdi Hasan had the courage to write what should have been written 50 years ago. Hasan writes, “Fifty years ago, between June 5 and June 10, 1967, Israel invaded and occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and the Golan Heights. The Six-Day War, as it would later be dubbed, saw the Jewish David inflict a humiliating defeat on the Arab Goliath, personified perhaps by Gamal Abdel Nasser’s Egypt.

“‘The existence of the Israeli state hung by a thread,’ the country’s prime minister, Levi Eshkol, claimed two days after the war was over, ‘but the hopes of the Arab leaders to annihilate Israel were dashed.’ Genocide, went the argument, had been prevented; another Holocaust of the Jews averted.

“There is, however, a problem with this argument: It is complete fiction, a self-serving fantasy constructed after the event to justify a war of aggression and conquest. Don’t take my word for it: ‘The thesis according to which the danger of genocide hung over us in June 1967, and according to which Israel was fighting for her very physical survival, was nothing but a bluff which was born and bred after the war,’ declared Gen. Matituahu Peled, chief of logistical command during the war and one of 12 members of Israel’s General Staff, in March 1972.

“A year earlier, Mordechai Bentov, a member of the wartime government and one of 37 people to sign Israel’s Declaration of Independence, had made a similar admission. ‘This whole story about the threat of extermination was totally contrived, and then elaborated upon, a posteriori, to justify the annexation of new Arab territories,’ he said in April 1971.

“Even Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, former terrorist and darling of the Israeli far right, conceded in a speech in August 1982 that ‘in June 1967 we had a choice. The Egyptian army concentrations in the Sinai approaches did not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him.’”

And let’s not forget: Israel not only decided to attack Nasser, but it also decided to attack the USS Liberty (with unmarked aircraft), killing 34 American Sailors and Marines—trying to make it look like Egypt attacked our ship, in the hopes that America would jump into the war on Israel’s side.

I am personally convinced that President Lyndon Johnson and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara conspired with Israel to carry out this attack—even going so far as ordering U.S. jets that were responding to the Liberty’s distress calls to turn around and leave the ship to sink.

Only an act of God kept that ship afloat. No one was supposed to survive to tell what really happened. But there were survivors. The survivors were ordered to keep silent about the attack, but, thankfully, several brave crew members have spent their lives trying to tell the American people the truth about Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty.

One of those survivors has become a friend of mine—a Christian man who watches my messages at Liberty Fellowship and follows this national column. His name is Ron Kukal. He recently spoke at Liberty Fellowship. More importantly, he co-authored a tell-all book about the attack on the USS Liberty. The book is entitled “Remember The LIBERTY!” And I am proud to be a distributor of this incredible book.

I urge readers to order copies for themselves and for as many friends as they can. Along with the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, the seizure of the USS Pueblo in 1968, and the 9/11/01 attacks, Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 is one of the most egregious examples of a national cover-up that has ever taken place in this country.

  1. Well, what if I told you my God is Bigfoot !
    (You don’t beleive in Bigfoot? Then you are going to
    HELL !)
    Well MY God Bigfoot “gifted” me all of California, Oregon and Washington.
    And I have the Bible of Bigfoot to prove it.

  2. Always remember, US Manifest Destiny is just a subset of Zionism. Both are based on the racist notion that certain Europeans were “chosen” by God to displace and murder indigenous people and steal their land and resources. If you didn’t notice that what the European Ashkenazim are doing in Palestine is very similar to what the Europeans who came to this continent did to Native Americans, you weren’t really paying attention. This is why US Christian Zionists get along so well with Likudniks like Benjamin Netanyahu.

    • You are absolutely correct Tommy Apeiron.
      And the HASBARA always use the “What about -ism”
      To try and “justify” their murderous sins.
      How many times have you heard it:
      “But what about what the English did.. yada yada yada,,”
      I always tell them”
      “Two Wrongs Do Not Make A Right”
      And remind them about the Talmud Commanding:
      “Thou Shalt Not Covet They Neighbors Lands”

  3. Alexis, you are quite right. A good friend of mine Samuel (Sam) W. Hubbard RADM, USN (may he rest in peace). Told me that he was not very far from where the Liberty was attacked on June 8th, 1967. He was enraged by the attack and was told to stand-down.

  4. All the very white Ashkenazis from Eastern Europe
    and Russia say:
    “But God Gave this land to the Ashkenazis!”
    I would love to see that Land Deed !
    Let’s put this so called God on the witness stand !”
    “Do you swear to god. err I mean do you swear to yourself…”
    The Joos make it sound like they got off the Exodus boat and there was a big sign that read:
    There were no white people in Palestine until the Europeans and their Crusader invasions.
    Birthright? What a joke !
    Jesus was Black!
    It even says so in the Book of Revelations.
