Returning to America

Home / Uncategorized / Returning to America

I will be returning to America in the next 36 hours as a publically accused “terrorist operative”, according to the Israeli military that is.  It will be interesting to see how my birth nation will handle me.  Especially because I headed to Gaza aboard the Freedom Flotilla in order to “train a commando unit for Hamas” (according to Israel).  But before I was venturing to train commando units I was already on the US “terror watch list”.

To be honest, having the two greatest purveyors of terrorism and propaganda accuse me of “terrorism” is a massive compliment.  Living as we do in George Orwell’s 1984, where black is white and white is black and the truth is nothing but a word, being a “terrorist” is a great thing.  You see in this New World Order kind of world those with power speak a language in which words mean the opposite of what they seem.  So when Israel and America say they want “peace”, that is Orwellian double-speak for “we are gonna bomb the bastards and steal their resources come hell or high water.”

Its funny actually, the greatest knock I have of myself is my utter failure to learn any language other than English… except for Orwellian double-speak that is.  And I realise now that I have been able to understand double-speak for quite some time now.  Like for instance, when I was in America on 9-11 and everybody was ready to kick some “terrorist butt!” and fight the “War on terror”, I knew plain as day that the actual plan was to carry out yet another war of terror and kill a whole bunch more innocent people.  Sadly most of my fellow Americans could not understand double-speak, or I am sure they would have thought otherwise of the plan.

And so here I am, accused and/or suspected of being a terrorist, you just gotta know the language, what they are actually saying is that I am a man with a proven record of humanitarian causes based on truth, justice and the desire for peace.  Israel and America are giving me a great compliment!

For clarities sake, “terrorist” translates to humanitarian and/or freedom fighter in double speak.

Now I’m no Nelson Mandela but he was paid the same compliment back when he was a “terrorist” convicted by another Orwellian agent, Apartheid South Africa.  Who knows, maybe I will likewise be rewarded with imprisonment because I refuse to abandon the lawful right of self-defence?

This is a long-standing language really, back in the day of colonial Britain the “intellectuals” and “leaders” of that era also knew the “terrorists”, today we know them as the Founding Fathers of America.

For clarities sake, “leader” translates to tyrant/traitor, “intellectual” means indoctrinated minion.

And so the Orwellian language remains as it was.

I made my last trip to the States through Canada thinking my travels would be smoother through the north, but the Israeli and Canadian governments are very cozy indeed, so that was a miscalculation.  My Canadian welcome included two days of “detention” in a Canadian jail before I was released without charge.  Welcome to Canada, where I guess they are not able to understand double-speak and apparently thought I was a real terrorist; easy mistake to make when you don’t know the language.

For clarities sake, “detention” without charge translates to, you have no human rights.

Eventually I made it south to the “Land of the Free”, while in Hawaii visiting my mother I had a Special Agent of the FBI come to visit me; and so I we chatted for about two hours.  He seemed a nice enough chap, but I made clear his boss (FBI Director Robert Mueller) was a traitor with inside knowledge of 9-11.  I guess that was enough to get me firmly on the “terror watch-list”, checking in and flying became quite silly after that, but the escorts throughout the airport made me feel real secure in the homeland.

And as if I did not already know, my friends within the airline industry told me that I am most definitely “ON THE LIST!”  If you want to know what it feels like to be Jihad Hussein with a massive beard and thick Arabic accent travelling from Mecca to the United States, just come on a trip with me, it is pretty much the same.  Actually, it isn’t really; if I were Arab I would have long since found my way into the torture chambers of the state terrorists.

And so I return to America in the next 36 hours, planning on meeting some of the American citizens with functioning brains and hearts that do more than pump blood.  There are thankfully more and more such people in the US, and beyond, and it is always great to connect with such people.  I will be mostly in the Northwest; Washington, Oregon and California, with a planned visit to Kansas as well.  We’ll see if expanding the visit to other places becomes possible, but maybe the good people at Homeland Security have other plans?  I suspect they may feel the need to protect the homeland from the likes of me.  We shall see.

So if I am sitting in a jail cell or worse in just over a day, please do not think of me alone, think of the unknown amounts of innocent people who rot in jails and dungeons, often tortured, at the behest of the embarrassing, disgusting, criminal US government.  And then thank Barack Obama the saviour who ain’t helping them one bit.  Nope, Guantanamo Bay and other torture chambers remain.

Now that is change you cannot bloody believe in.

Always great to return home!

    This is a poem by Nizar Qabani, written in 1997 in response of the consequenses of the Oslo peace process…Nizar Qabani is one of the best Poets in the modern time he usually writes poems defending women in Machist society, he surprized his fans by this poem:

    We are accused of terrorism

    if we defended rose and woman

    and the mighty verse …

    and the blueness of sky …

    A dominion .. nothing left therein…

    No water, no air ..

    No tent, no camel,

    and not even dark Arabica coffee!!


    We are accused of terrorism:

    if we defended with guts

    the hair of Balqis

    and the lips of Maysun

    if we defended Hind, and Da`d

    Lubna and Rabab ..

    and the stream of Kohl

    coming down from their lashes like the verses of revelation.

    You will not find with me

    a secret poem

    or a secret logos

    or books I put behind doors.

    I do not even have one poem

    walking down the street, wearing veil.


    We are accused of terrorism:

    if we wrote about the ruins of a homeland

    torn, weak …

    a homeland with no address

    and a nation with no names


    I seek the remnants of a homeland

    none of its grand poems is left

    except the bemoans of Khansa.


    I seek a dominion in whose horizons

    no freedom can be found

    red .. blue or yellow.


    A homeland forbidding us from bying a newspaper

    or listening to the news.

    A dominion wherein birds are forbidden

    from chirping.

    A homeland wherein, out of terror [ru`b],

    its writers got accustomed to write about


    A homeland, in the likeness of poetry in our lands:

    It is vain talk,

    no rhythm,


    Ajam, with a crooked face and tongue:

    No beginning

    No end

    No relation with people’s worry

    mother earth

    and the crisis of man.


    A dominion …

    going to peace talks

    with no honor

    no shoe.


    A homeland,

    men peed in their pans ..

    women are those left to defend honor.


    Salt in our eyes

    Salt in our lips

    Salt in our words

    Can the self carry such dryness?

    An inheritance we got from the barren Qahtan?

    In our nation, no Mu`awiya, and no Abu Sufiyan

    No one is left to say “NO”

    and face the quitters

    they gave up our houses, our bread and our [olive] oil.

    They transformed our bright history into a mediocre store.


    In our lives, no poem is left,

    since we lost our chastity in the bed of the Sultan.


    They got accustomed to us, the humbled.

    What is left to man

    when all that remains

    is disgrace.


    I seek in the books of history

    Ussamah ibn al-Munqith

    Uqba ibn Nafi`

    Omar, and Hamzah

    and Khalid, driving his flocks conquering The Levant.

    I seek a Mu`tasim Billah

    Saving women from the cruelty of rape

    and the fire.


    I seek latter days men

    All I can see is frightened cats

    Scared for their own souls, from

    the sultanship of mice.


    Is this an overwhelming national blindness?

    Are we blind to colors?


    We are accused of terrorism

    If we refuse to die

    with Israel’s bulldozers

    tearing our land

    tearing our history

    tearing our Evangelium

    tearing our Koran

    tearing the graves of our prophets

    If this was our sin,

    then, lo, how beautiful terrorism is?


    We are accused of terrorism

    if we refused to be effaced

    by the hands of the Mogul, Jews and Barbarians

    if we throw a stone

    at the glass of the the Security Council

    after the Ceasar of Ceasars got a hold of it.


    We are accused of terrorism

    if we refuse to negociate with the wolf

    and shake the hand with a whore



    Against the cultures of the peoples

    with no culture

    Against the civilizations of the civilized

    with no civilization


    a mighty edifice

    with no walls!


    We are accused of terrorism:

    if we refused an era

    America became

    the foolish, the rich, the mighty

    translated, sworn

    in Hebrew.


    We are accused of terrorism:

    if we throw a rose

    to Jerusalem

    to hebron

    to Gaza

    to Nazareth

    if we took bread and water

    to beleaguered Troy.


    We are accused of terrorism:

    if we raised our voices against

    the regionalists of our leaders.

    All changed their rides:

    from Unionists

    to Brokers.


    If we committed the heinous crime of culture

    if we revolted against the orders of the grand caliph

    and the seat of the caliphate

    If we read jurisprudence or politics

    If we recalled God

    and read verse al-Fat-h

    [that Chapter of Conquest].

    If we listened to the Friday sermon

    then we are well-established in the art of terrorism


    We are accused of terrorism

    if we defended land

    and the honor of dust

    if we revolted against the rape of people

    and our rape

    if we defended the last palm trees in our desert

    the last stars in our sky

    the last syllabi of our names

    the last milk in our mothers’ bosoms

    if this was our sin

    how beautiful is terrorism.


    I am with terrorism

    if it is able to save me

    from the immigrants from Russia

    Romania, Hungaria, and Poland


    They settled in Palestine

    set foot on our shoulders

    to steal the minarets of al-Quds

    and the door of Aqsa

    to steal the arabesques

    and the domes.


    I am with terrorism

    if it will free the Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth,

    and the virgin, Meriam Betula

    and the holy city

    from the ambassadors of death and desolation



    The nationalist street was fervent

    like a wild horse.

    The rivers were abundant with the spirit of youth.


    But after Olso,

    we no longer had teeth:

    we are now a blind and lost people.


    We are accused of terrorism:

    if we defended with full-force

    our poetic heritage

    our national wall

    our rosy civilization

    the culture of flutes in our mountains

    and the mirrors displaying blackened eyes.


    We are accused of terrorism:

    if we defended what we wrote

    El azure of our sea

    and the aroma of ink

    if we defended the freedom of the word

    and the holiness of books


    I am with terrorism

    if it is able to free a people

    from tyrants and tyranny

    if it is able to save man from the cruelty of man

    to return lemon, olive tree, and bird to the South of Lebanon

    and the smile back to Golan


    I am with terrorism

    if it will save me

    from the Caesar of Yehuda

    and the Caesar of Rome


    I am with terrorism

    as long as this new world order

    is shared

    between America and Israel



    I am with terrorism

    with all my poetry

    with all my words

    and all my teeth

    as long as this new world

    is in the hands of a butcher.


    I am with terrorism

    if the U.S. Senate

    enacts judgment

    decrees reward and punishment


    I am with Irhab [terrorism]

    as long this new world order

    hates the smell of A`rab.


    I am with terrorism

    as long as the new world order

    wants to slaughter my off-spring.

    and send them to dogs.


    For all this

    I raise my voice high:

    I am with terrorism

    I am with terrorism

    I am with terrorism …

    Hi Bro Ken, Wishing you ‘HOME SWEET HOME’. Our deepest appreciation to Mrs Ken & Ken Jr for their sacrificiation by allowing their husband/father to spend & concentrate immeasureable time toward the well-being of MANKIND. Brother, You have already crafted a name KENNETH O’KEEFE down in our World History alike Abraham Lincoln, Mathma Gandhi, J.F. Kennedy, Malcolm x, Martin Luther King etc. Stay in your best of health & take care. Predicted risk is highly supreme to unpredicted risks. Both will lead us to DEATH eventually………..

    Best wishes in Amerika Ken. Too bad you can’t get on a program like Hardtalk in the U.S. and reach some of the sheople.

    p.s. Unfortunately the U.S. “mainstream” media, probably will not allow your views on air.
