Kevin Barrett catches up with Ken O’Keefe who is is in Gaza, where bombs have been falling constantly, unreported by the mainstream media. Ken is one of the bravest and most articulate activists of our time. Last year he helped defend the Mavi Marmara from an act of piracy by murderous Israeli commandos — and, after surviving the ordeal, gave one of the greatest-ever dissident-meets-mainstream-TV interviews, on BBC’s Hardtalk. He also participated in last year’s groundbreaking London Symposium uniting the 9/11 truth and pro-Palestine movements.

In this extraordinary book, Alan Hart has succeeded in elucidating for us the immediate and long term dangers involved in the unconditional Western support for Zionism and its oppressive policies against the Palestinians.
Israelis shoot at demonstrators in Gaza – Ken O’Keefe, Beit Hanoun, Gaza 29-11-10
We are looking at sending at least one bus from the UK to Gaza, loaded with materials to set up the Samouni Family Community Centre/Classroom. We would like to do this in the next couple of weeks so we need many things to happen very fast if we are to meet such a deadline. Keep in mind that there are about 112 Samouni kids, two years on from Operation Cast Lead with hardly any support in so many regards, so the sooner we make a difference the better. For 112 kids the requested items that follow are pretty modest; we will look to expand the facilities for sure, with a full educational complex planned, but the goal at this moment is ambitious yet realistic, it really is up to all of us. I am hoping everyone who reads this will give something, big or small. Now is the time to have a functioning classroom and community centre ASAP for this family. We have met with the family and consulted them at length, what they want, including the children, is a real learning facility where the kids can get back to where they were before Operation Cast Lead. We have the teachers ready to go here in Gaza, teachers the kids love, we just need to get the classroom up and running.
