Ken O’Keefe speaks out on Mavi Marmara attack
by Larry Geller
Somehow I missed that Ken O’Keefe, survivor of the Mavi Marmara massacre, has a Hawaii connection. Thanks to Anonymous, who posted this comment to an earlier article:
Ken OKeefe advocate for Hawaii rights and sovereignty (from Hawaii, producer of film: The United States of Hypocrisy) was beat up badly on the Marvi Marmara ship. He also made it to Dublin:
Israeli commando 'to get valor medal'
By Press TV
An Israeli commando who shot dead several activists in a recent attack on a Gaza-bound international aid convoy may receive a medal of valor, a report says.
The Times Online reported on Saturday that the nominated Israeli soldier single-handedly killed six campaigners on the Turkish ship, Mavi Marmara -- one of the six ships of the Freedom Flotilla.
Check out this link: Ken O'keefe speaks out as a witness of flotilla attack (6/7/2010). Do read it, it’s a very powerful statement.
