Jews Upset Over New USS Liberty Documentary


hissy fit

By Ben Cohen


With U.S.-Israeli bilateral relations hitting a new low this week, the Qatari-financed news broadcaster Al Jazeera America is tonight broadcasting a special report on the USS Liberty, the American naval vessel that came under deadly fire from Israeli forces on June 8, 1967 – the fourth day of the Six Day War which pitted the Jewish state against a coalition of Arab armies.

Thirty-four Americans died and 171 were injured in the attack. Israel said it mistook the Liberty for an enemy vessel, the Egyptian ship El Quseir. Subsequently, Israel issued a full apology for the attack, and has to date paid out more than $12 million in compensation to the survivors and their families, as well as the U.S. government.

In an interview with The Algemeiner, former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren, an expert on the Liberty affair who now serves as Ambassador-in-Residence at The Atlantic Council, asserted that “thousands of pages of formerly classified documents on the Liberty have been declassified, both Israeli and American. None of those documents – I stress none – indicate that the Liberty was anything other than a tragic friendly fire episode.”

Among the declassified documents, Oren said, “are the tapes made by Israeli pilots and the tapes intercepted by American intelligence. All of them indicate that the Liberty attack was an accident. Every once in a while, someone comes up with ‘new evidence,’ but it always falls short.”

The USS Liberty affair has long been a favored topic of Israel’s harshest critics in America, as well as more extreme antisemitic conspiracy theorists, who insist the attack was deliberate. These detractors charge that Israel attacked the Liberty because the ship was eavesdropping on Israeli plans to attack the Syrian-controlled Golan Heights. Oren, who authored an extensive report on the matter, is adamant that “Israel made no attempt to hide its preparations for an offensive against Syria, and that the United States government, relying on regular diplomatic channels, remained fully apprised of them.” According to Oren, the attack was a tragic example of friendly fire, with severe operational errors made by both American and Israeli military planners.

Another theory advanced by the American investigative journalist James Bamford – described by Oren as “a well-known conspiracy theorist, who keeps coming up with different stories” – holds that “Israel mounted the attack because it worried that the Liberty would learn of the nearby killing of hundreds of Egyptian POWs by the Israeli army.” As an Anti- Defamation League report on the Liberty incident pointed out, “no evidence has been found to corroborate a war crime charge.”

Al Jazeera’s report is produced by Richard Belfield, a British journalist. In an article for the broadcaster’s website, Belfield left little doubt as to which side of the dispute he falls on. “First, the crew had been attacked in broad daylight by a close ally, then they were betrayed by their government and now they were being humiliated by the same agency many had worked for back in 1967,” Belfield wrote. His article made no mention of the compensation paid by Israel, and nor did he say whether he had spoken to any Israeli sources.

Belfield has somewhat of a penchant for conspiracy theories. His 2005 book “The Assassination Business” claimed the official versions of the death of Britain’s Princess Diana and the murder of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin were false, and that British and Israeli intelligence services were likely involved in both deaths. Belfield’s book was described by the respected book reviewer Kirkus Reviews as an “oddly entertaining exposé,” with readers advised to “keep a tumbler full of salt grains close at hand” when reading it.

In his account of Rabin’s assassination, Belfield declared, “the history of modern Israel is one of conspiracy interrupted by assassination, a volatile and feverish democracy underpinned by the world’s most ruthless intelligence services, for whom there is no moral debate about ends and means.” Even more outlandishly, he wrote of “the long tradition of Jews assassinating other Jews” – without providing examples – and argued, again with no citation, that “ancient Talmudic law” portrays as a “sacred duty” the imperative for a Jew to kill another Jew who “imperils” Jewish lives or properties.

While no evidence has emerged to suggest that Al Jazeera has deliberately timed the broadcast of Belfield’s film to coincide with the current crisis between Washington and Jerusalem, interest in the report is likely to be heightened because of the diplomatic clash. Al Jazeera promises that the report will reveal “the shocking truth behind a deadly Israeli attack on a US naval vessel.”

The ailing Al Jazeera America is certainly chasing ratings, given its poor performance in the 14 months since its American version went on the air. According to media and entertainment website The Wrap, Al Jazeera America “is down 44 percent compared to [predecessor] Current TV,” averaging just 14,000 viewers in a “total day.”

    Yet, The marrano team of Johnson/McNamara demanded the rescue flight of jets be called back immediately because “I will not embarrass our ally in the Persian Gulf”. How’d that Kennedy murdering swine know who was attacking?? The lucky survivors weren’t even aware of who was responsible yet? In addition, only the evil IDF would machine gun life rafts, (well, learning from example “our boys” happily do the same now).

    Simply put, we have through example, become as our “friends”, a reprehensible bunch of murdering dogs. Truly and open sewer.

    Is it possible for a jew to be objective about izrahells crimes? I think not. I wonder why the izraileeeze painted over the star”s of David under the wings of the French-made, Mirage jets used to attack the American ship? I wonder what gravity jews give to the fact that the Israelis had several low-flying, jets circle the American ship, several times before attacking? Or that the American ship was flying its brightest flag on a sunlit afternoon when attacked? Oren? He’s nothing but a jewish apologist. Peter

    The Aljazeera program about the USS Liberty is intended to conceal the truth, not to expose it.

    This is to be expected, since Aljazeera is owned by the government of Qatar, which is extremely tight with the Jews. Qatar helped to destroy Libya, is helping to destroy Syria, and plans to help destroy Iran, all of which delights the Jews.

    In support of the Jews, Aljazeera claims that you are an “extreme anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist” if you suggest that the deliberate Jewish attack on the USS Liberty was a deliberate Jewish attack. In fact, any mention of Israeli depravity makes you a “conspiracy theorist.”

    Aljazeera whines about its extremely poor viewer ratings. The ratings are no surprise, since Aljazeera spouts the same lies that are spouted by Fox News and the rest of the corporate media outlets.

    The facts stand as to the deliberate two hour attack on the USS Liberty by “israel”. With a known record of such False Flag Operations beginning with the bombing of the King David Hotel in 1948. The conspiracies committed by this rogue group of self anointed delusional freaks is all but exposed. Calling anyone bringing this act to the fore ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ and ‘Anti Semites’ is null & void. Michael Oren is a known Supreme Zionist. Thus anything he says can be considered as such; empty rhetoric and jewish propaganda. It was not an accident. And had it not been for the brave men on board who worked under heavy fire and relentless shelling, naplam, torpedoes to sink her; we would have been pushed into a potential Nuclear War with Russia. They are trying in vain to once again set us all up for the same scenario currently with their forays into Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. The Golan Heights belongs to Syria, and like Palestine has been under occupation ever since this filthy lot of vandals, dregs, and reprobates were allowed to slither into the region. The entire planet has been under their influence for the past century with non stop wars, interference and meddling in the Affairs of States, Nations, where they peddle their lies and deceit with cold calculated efficacy. Their effect is waning however,. as the people of this little blue planet awaken to the horror in our midst. Remember the USS Liberty, June 8th, 1967 and the subsequent coverup and threats committed against her Crew and Captain by the traitorous crypo jew Lyndon Baines Johnson and his Secretary of Defense Robert MacNamara. Treason of the most foul.

    It was intentional. Jews don’t make mistakes when it comes to killing. I did not realize that the world is over run by these creatures errmm devils

    I often call it Al Jewzeera for its bias.
    Listen to the Audio book, “What a Saw That Day” by Phil Tourney (one of the survivors). Listen to it a second time. It can be found at

    One very important item is missing from the article.
    The audio-tape, from the lunatic-state, verifies that IOF were well aware they were ABOUT TO FIRE upon an American ship. The operator & pilot had a conversation and the word, “American”, was reported and repeated. The go-ahead was given. They attacked America because they wanted to prove they could do so and get away with it.

    Every one of these freaks who comes at us needs to be remined of the fact that it WAS intentional. They also need reminding that each and every time an American is killed or assaulted and injured by these freaks (esp in Palestine), it reminds US of the USS Liberty. It reminds us that they think they have every right to do this.

    Just the fact these guys weren’t honored at the White House, but in some backyard, basically, and the ship itself was covered up, screams the fact that the entire incident was to be hushed.

    Algemeiner is a zionist site and a rabid one at that. Trying to lie their way out of their sociopathic mad dog ways.

    Like so many other criminals and criminal organizations throughout history the biggest threat to tyranny, evil and terrorist states like Israel is the truth. This is of course why Israel and its supporters world wide spend literally billions (mostly other people’s money ironically) to stop people from telling the truth about Israel. If there was nothing to hide and this truly was an “accident” the Israeli government along with the likes of their man Johnson and Admiral McCain (Senator McCain’s father) would never have gone to such incredible lengths to cover it up.

    For those that doubt that this was NOT a friendly fire incident, but a deliberate attempt to sink the ship and then blame it on Egypt in order to draw the US into the war on Israel’s side I suggest you read the articles and comments as well as the actual testimony of the sailors on board the Liberty that day.

    Israel spent nearly 2 hours strafing the life boats and sailors in the water. They did so because they could not sink the ship until all the eye witnesses were dead. As it turned out fast moving Jets could not easily kill individual sailors in the water hence the length of time loitering instead of sinking the ship. They only stopped the attack when a Russian trawler came on the scene.

    The name USS LIBERTY was written on the sides of the ship IN 6 FOOT HIGH LETTERS! It was clearly flying an American flag. The officers of the Liberty identified themselves as US on the radio. There was NEVER any doubt about its identification. It was also clearly sailing in international waters. President Johnson and Admiral McCain committed treason that day and both men should have been arrested and executed. The sixth fleet should have attacked and destroyed Tel Aviv that day. Because it was the Israeli command that ordered this attack. It was an open act of war against the United States. And “our President” instead of protecting America and Americans aided and abetted Israel. And our “leaders” in the White House and Congress have been selling out to Israel ever since.

    Al Jazeera used to be more credible years ago. Not any more, they have been bought by the Jews. We have been invaded by the Jewish controlled news media. ONLY LIES.

    While at this point it’s kinda pointless, the fact that the attack was deliberate and that the Israeli’s knew they were attacking an American Naval Vessel prior to commencing the attack is well established. Dean Rusk, Richard Helms, Bobby Jo Inman, Thomas Moorer, Rufus Taylor-all are on record unequivocally stating the attack was deliberate and the Israeli’s knew it was an American Naval Vessel prior to commencing the attack. We’re talking about the Secretary of State, the Chief of US Naval Operations and eventual Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the head of the NSA, the head of the CIA, etc, etc. Would you even acknowledge that it is the position, on record, of these people, that the attack was deliberate? Can you acknowledge that much? And are you saying that they are all lying? And are you going to start with the “no plausible motive” bit next? There are numerous plausible motives including an attempt by Israel to draw America into the War (they were supposed to sink the ship and kill every crew member and then the Israeli’s were going to blame it on the Egyptians). OK so next you’ll start in with I am a Jew hater which I am not at all. I would simply like for the truth to be acknowledged. To claim the Israeli’s didn’t know prior to commencing the attack that they were attacking a US Naval Vessel is almost as big of an insult as the attack itself.
