Tahrir4Gaza – Liberation for Gaza

Home / Blog / Tahrir4Gaza – Liberation for Gaza

As the Arab people continue to exercise unarmed yet mighty power, there is one place above all others that remains at the heart of the struggle, Palestine.  Despite all the money, propaganda, weapons, false imprisonment, ethnic cleansing, torture and mass-murder wielded against them, they have endured, and they remain, unmovable, they are the people of Palestine.  This Global revolution will never be complete until Palestine is free, and in this moment in time, we can listen to those who call for “calm” and “restraint”, or we can listen to our hearts, use our heads, and carry on to the next and most obvious step in this revolution, Palestine.

Resolute

The most powerful thing of all that has occurred in the ongoing uprisings is this, people have begun to believe, that ANYTHING is possible.  I have lived with that knowledge for many years, I have seen, smelled and touched a better world.  I have felt rage and I have cried, watching as my fellow human beings remained imprisoned within the chains of mental enslavement.  And yet I knew, we were just one catalysing event away from massive acceleration in human consciousness and direct action.  And in these days I have cried yet again, with tears of joy as I watched my Egyptian brothers and sisters in Tahrir Square, doing what would have been considered impossible less than a month ago.  And together we know, ANYTHING is possible.

Global Revolution Egypt

There are those who fear Israel, the Egyptian Military, or simply the unknown, but such people remain in the time when we were slaves.  Well we are slaves no more, and for those of us absent of fear and powered by love of justice, we are going to Gaza.  And as we march we shall not be alone, we shall carry with us the will of the people of the world who know what we know, Palestine will be free.  We the people, we are the ultimate power, and we can do ANYTHING!


2,000,o00 Egyptians Chanting Free Palestine!

We are going to march to Gaza, we are going to liberate Gaza, to support the march go to;

    IN Solidarity YES We Can and YES We Will Begin the World Again and THANK YOU again Ken for being a FULBRIGHT Leader:

    “The age of warrior kings and of warrior presidents has passed. The nuclear age calls for a different kind of leadership….a leadership of intellect, judgment, tolerance and rationality, a leadership committed to human values, to world peace, and to the improvement of the human condition. The attributes upon which we must draw are the human attributes of compassion and common sense, of intellect and creative imagination, and of empathy and understanding between cultures.” – William Fulbright

    Thanks Ken.
    Facebook disabled my account after I published the next messages on the wall of Jack Cleary (Why am I paying taxes so these idiots can build ILLEGAL settlements?)

    1) Everything was planned:
    THE OBAMA PLAN (ALSO CALLED THE ‘PEACE PROCESS’): A GOLDEN DEAL BETWEEN TEL AVIV AND WASHINGTON…
    1) November 15, 2010 – ’U.S. President Barack Obama has praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for urging his cabinet to accept a U.S. proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building for 90 days. Under the plan, Washington would block UN resolutions critical of Israel, and supply Israel with fighter jets worth $3 billion. The US government also promised Israel that after the 90-day moratorium, they would not seek an extension, and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (all of which is illegal under international law) could continue unabated.’

    2) Everything is planned:
    Since 2001, Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs and leader of Israel’s far right party, Avigdor Lieberman, proposes to establish four townships in the occupied West Bank, hermetically sealed, which would be grouped the Palestinians. He sees it as a solution for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are more than one million, to move the vast majority of the group in tightly closed, self-administered areas.
    Thus would arise a State ethnically homogeneous from the Mediterranean Sea until the Jordan, sheltering in its midst Palestinian “Bantustans”.

      Operation Cast Lead was also planned, aided and abetted by US occupied Congress:

      During the 22 days of Israeli assault on Gaza, “Washington provided F-16 fighter planes, Apache helicopters, tactical missiles, and a wide array of munitions, including white phosphorus and DIME. The weapons required for the Israeli assault was decided upon in June 2008, and the transfer of 1,000 bunker-buster GPS-guided Small Diameter Guided Bomb Units 39 (GBU-39) were approved by Congress in September. The GBU 39 bombs were delivered to Israel in November (prior to any claims of Hamas cease fire violation!) for use in the initial air raids on Gaza. [1]

      In a 71-page report released March 25, 2009, by Human Rights Watch, Israel’s repeated firing of US-made white phosphorus shells over densely populated areas of Gaza was indiscriminate and is evidence of war crimes.

      “Rain of Fire: Israel’s Unlawful Use of White Phosphorus in Gaza,” provides eye witness accounts of the devastating effects that white phosphorus munitions had on civilians and civilian property in Gaza.

      “Human Rights Watch researchers found spent shells, canister liners, and dozens of burnt felt wedges containing white phosphorus on city streets, apartment roofs, residential courtyards, and at a United Nations school in Gaza immediately after hostilities ended in January.

      “Militaries officially use white phosphorus to obscure their operations on the ground by creating thick smoke. It has also been used as an incendiary weapon, though such use constitutes a war crime.

      “In Gaza, the Israeli military didn’t just use white phosphorus in open areas as a screen for its troops,” said Fred Abrahams, senior emergencies researcher at Human Rights Watch and co-author of the report. “It fired white phosphorus repeatedly over densely populated areas, even when its troops weren’t in the area and safer smoke shells were available. As a result, civilians needlessly suffered and died.” [Ibid]

      During the 22 days of attack on Gaza, the UN Security Council, Amnesty International, International Red Cross, and global voices of protest rose up and demanded a ceasefire, but both houses of Congress overwhelmingly endorsed resolutions to support a continuation of Israel’s so called “self defense.”

    This monumental change has been brought about by people with the hearts and souls of warriors, who believe they are powerful beyond tyranny, beyond weapons, beyond measure!
    It’s a privilege to watch and be a part of the people taking back their rights and their dignity, with shields of nothing other than sheer will and courage alone.

    Ken, you’re a man of vision with his “soul on fire” – you truly embody the saying – “Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing is so gentle as real strength.” Thank you for bringing us the truth.

    Thank you for this Ken.

    I have Arabic friends in the Near East, America and Europe. Over the past month days they have been absolutely fizzing with excitement. They said with an attitude of triumph that after Jordan falls ”we will blockade Israel”. My contribution was to say that we will then use the Israeli’s Apartheid Wall to keep the Israelis locked in and we will allow America to bring food parcels which we will search to remove anything good (security reasons) before throwing the parcels over the wall. If the Israelis try to dig tunnels we will blow them up. When the Gaza Ghetto border with Egypt is open, the people of Gaza will water their lawns and enjoy their swimming pools while the Israelis will carry buckets to a tap in the Tel Aviv ghetto. My Arab friends reaction to my comments was to appoint me as Egypt’s new Foreign Minister.

    This is all in good fun but keep in mind that Arabs all know the US$ 1.5 Billion which America gave to Mubarak every year, was actually aid for Israel in addition to the US$3 Billion which America gives directly to Israel. For those people who don’t have Arab friends, I want you to understand that American / Israeli hegemony via corrupt puppets like the Mubarak regime, has for many decades made Arabs feel like second class citizens. There is an electric feeling of restoration and rebirth among Arabs throughout the world because Arabs are experiencing feelings of ‘revolutionary joy’ no less than Africans felt when they gained self-determination by succeeding in their fight against colonialism.

    Arabs all over the world feel a new sense of pride and empowerment. Arabs and the Islamic world in general (Iranians are not Arabs) have a new feeling of equality and entitlement which makes them feel determined to control their own geological resources (oil). Do you understand the deep motivational power of this highly charged emotional genie which will never again be suppressed by the American/Israeli apartheid regimes? The Americans and Israelis know that things can never be the same ever again.

    Oh Ken oh Ken still too scared to even mention the word Hamas?
    Not too many years ago it was common to see Palestinian women wearing modern clothes in the streets of Gaza…
    When will Gaza be free from Hamas?
    Such hypocrisy Mr O’kefee.

    Mr O’Keefe, do you thnk it might be time for you to come home and join the fight here. What is happening in Palestine is terrible but the heart of the beast lives here in the USA. Jews gained control of US banks, media, and corporations by loaning themselves wealth created from nothing. Can’t you see that until we take away jews ability to do this you are pissing in the wind?

    Israel is a steam valve jews use to get the USA to look the other way while jews rob us blind.

    100 million US citizens live in poverty because of the jew mafiia so forgive me if I could care less that some innocent jews might suffer when we take our country back. Besides I can count the jews who admit the jew mafia control the USA on 1 hand so how many are really innocent.

    Snap out of Mr O’Keefe Israel is a symptom of the USA’s huge jew problem.

    Washington is blocking all the UN-resolutions critical of Israel.

    Ken,
    Hi Ken! I saw this on Crown Heights News web site. I sent it to Mark Glenn. I don’t know why, but I felt pressed upon to send it to you also. I don’t understand why this young man is saying the things he is saying, but then again nothing is etched in stone. May God bless and keep you and all yours! May God bless and keep the Palestinian People and all Muslim Peoples everywhere. Yours Truly, Kathryn.
