Skip to comments.Israel accuses former US Marine on aid mission of terrorist links
Posted on 06/07/2010 8:17:12 PM PDT by Nachum
A former US Marine is at the centre of Israels response to the outrage caused by its raid on a Gaza-bound aid boat after it listed him as one of five people on board with terrorist links.
Ken OKeefe, 40, who lives in London, told The Times that he had met Ismail Haniya, the Hamas leader, and said that he supported the organisations right to violent resistance.
He also said that he had helped to subdue two Israeli commandos after leaders of the Turkish Islamic IHH charity enacted a plan to defend the boat.

The list, ping
Then the accusation is accurate.
Jail this terrorist ....
I hope Israel does us a favor.
So this is like a John Murthy former Marine? Semper Tyranus.
I support the military’s supporting of the right to violent resistence in some situations but not supporting muzzie terrorists. I hope that if an order comes down to confiscate arms then the military would disobey it, violently if necessary.
He might “live” in London, but one of his citizenships he lists is Palestinian.
The accusation is exactly accurate.
He is playing the big sympathy card. He really IS a palestinian, he knows how to play the victim like a pro!
Here is links to his “Aloha Palestine” that is “Connecting Gaza to the world”
“Kens statement in full:
In response to the Israeli governments claims that I, Ken OKeefe, am an operative of Hamas who intended to train terrorists in Gaza, I make a counter charge; Israel and the United States, along with their British partner, are the greatest terrorists of our time. Selling, distributing and using more weapons of mass destruction than all other nations combined. When I speak of terrorism I am using the Blacks Law Dictionary definition of the word, with that definition it is clear that the United States is the number one terrorist of the 20th and 21st centuries. There are over 800,000 innocent children in Gaza that are among the victims of Israels terrorism, in fact the entire population of Palestine is victim of said terrorism. I do not say this as inciteful rhetoric, I say it as a moral, thinking human being who is capable of seeing the truth.
Despite the threats and slandorous charges I will not repeat the sickening pattern of rejecting the legitimate right of self defense, I wholeheartedly support that right.
As for the charges made against me, the truth lies within my actions in life. I am available for interviews and will happily discuss my associations and actions. My path in life is an open book, and one that I am blessed and proud to have walked.
NOTICE HE DOESN’T DISPUTE THE CHARGES, JUST WHINES ABOUT ISRAEL.
O’Keefe is the a-hole with the prison tattoos who operated a human shield group just prior to the start of the Iraq war (and bugged out before TSHTF). May the Israelis Rachel-Corrie his sorry self.
He's a traitor and he needs to meet this guy.
When your head is up your rectum, son, all you see is ...
Smoke his ass...
Was he a “Palestinian” before he joined the U.S. military, and if so, how did he get enlisted?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
This is why we have laws against aiding terror groups. The US should request his extradition. His renunciation of US citizenship is irrelevant unless the State Dept. accepted it.
hope he gets what he deserves
