Shooting Down Israel's Lies, Marine Corps Style

Kenneth O’Keefe says it all; a must see video.

(LONDON) - In the following videos you can watch a BBC presenter going out of her way to justify the Israeli hasbara murderous narrative.

She is no doubt the devil's advocate but she fails.

Sentence by sentence, Ken O’Keefe manages to teach her and us what kindness and humanity are all about.

He said, "The plan was to break the blockade and deliver aid which is critically needed to ease the pollution of Gaza; which has been subjected to the collective punishment which subjects children to conditions we wouldn't tolerate one single day in the U.S. or Great Britain."

Ken is a former U.S. Marine and veteran of the first Gulf War, who was aboard the Mavi Marmara during the deadly Israeli attack on the vessel on 31 May 2010, while en route to Gaza as part of the Freedom Flotilla.

In spite of her best attempts, this interviewer can't make a point that isn't refuted by this warrior turned peace activist, who was there to actually see what happened.

Awesome ! If all Marines and Ex-Marines were like this guy (and Tim King), this world would be so much better. Civilians (like myself) have a real tendency to sit on their asses and think up reasons why someone else should take the risks and do the heavy lifting....anyone but them.
