Very interesting article by Alan Hart who witnessed the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty
I know that one of the prices Liberty survivors pay for telling the truth is vilification by supporters of Israel right or wrong. The message sent to
James Ennes was no doubt typical of many. "You are an anti-Semitic, Nazi bastard. Drop dead."
Those and similar other false and filthy charges come out of the mouths of people who have been brainwashed by Zionist propaganda and are beyond
reason. I mean that they are not open to informed, honest and rational debate. And that, simply stated, is the reason why peace has not yet been
possible in the Middle East and probably never will be.
The idea behind the Liberty’s deployment was that if it picked up messages indicating that Israel was re-deploying from the Sinai to launch major
offensives in the north, and against Syria in particular, the evidence of Israeli intent and duplicity would be passed to Johnson, and that he would
then pick up the 'phone to Prime Eshkol and say something like: "We know what your generals are up to. You must order them to stop, and if you
don’t or can’t, I will."
Simply stated, the Liberty was on station as the Johnson administration’s insurance policy. It’s main mission was to prevent Israel going to war
with Syria and possibly provoking a U.S-Soviet confrontation.
Dayan ordered the attack on the Liberty to prevent it giving the Johnson administration early warning of his intentions to extend the war.
As it happened, Israel’s last land grab of the war – the taking for keeping of the Syrian Golan Heights – DID provoke the threat of Soviet
military intervention. For some hours there was the prospect of a superpower confrontation and possibly World War III. But at the brink, catastrophe
was averted by use of the White House-Kremlin hot line.
Of all the evidence indicating that Dayan didn’t want any of the Liberty’s crew to live to tell the story, the most compelling in my view is the
use of NAPALM during the attack. In Vietnam I saw what napalm can do. It reduces targeted human bodies to small piles of squelchy, black pulp.
So far as I am aware, the only honest piece of reporting in the American media in the immediate aftermarth of the attack was on 19 June in
Newsweek’s "Periscope" section. A small item in that read as follows:
"Although Israel’s apologies were officially accepted, some high Washington officials believe the Israelis knew the Liberty’s capabilities and
suspect that the attack might not have been accidental. One top-level theory holds that someone in the Israeli armed forces ordered the Liberty sunk
because he suspected it had taken down messages showing that Israel started the fighting."
Only the truth can bring out the best of America, and there’s no better place to start than with the truth about Israel’s attack on the U.S.S.
Liberty. I salute your efforts to make this truth known, If you can assist my efforts to promote it and other related truths, it might be possible to
bring out the best of America before it’s too late for us all.
