What You Can Do To Help

Often we are asked, "What can I do to help?"

Here are some things you can do with some examples of what others have done before:

1. Write to your Congressman. The attack on our ship was a documented, proven war crime even as described by the Israeli government. Thirty-four Americans died and 174 were wounded. Yet the attack on the USS Liberty is the only serious maritime incident in American history that has never been investigated by Congress. Urge your Congressman to break this longstanding impasse. Click here for your Congressman's email and regular mail address.

2. Write to your newspaper. Click here to find the email or regular mail address

3. Buy and display a USS Liberty bumper sticker and other Liberty memorabilia.

4. Buy and wear a USS Liberty cap, jacket, shirt or sweatshirt.

5. Ask your town, city or county board, your mayor or your governor to declare June 8 "USS LIBERTY REMEMBRANCE DAY". A dozen states and as many cities and counties have done so already. Yours could be next

6. Ask to name a park, street, lake, library, building or other suitable landmark in memory of USS Liberty or one of the brave men who died on June 8, 1967. Over four dozen such memorials already exist. You need only ask.

7. Become a supporting Associate Member of the USS Liberty Veterans Association by sending a tax deductible contribution of $20 or more to Treasurer Moe Shafer, USSLVA, c/o Blazer Associates, Inc., 4994 Lower Roswell Rd., Suite 33, Marietta, GA 30068

8. Buy and read "Assault on the Liberty". Give copies to your friends. Inquire about discounts on ten or more copies.

9. Buy and read "Operation Cyanide: How the Attack on USS Liberty Nearly Caused World War III". Give copies to your friends.

10. Buy and view BBC Documentary "USS LIBERTY, DEAD IN THE WATER". Give copies to your friends.

11. Buy and view The History Channel Documentary: COVER-UP: Attack on the USS Liberty. Give copies to your friends.

12. Buy and view The Documentary: USS Liberty Survivors -- OUR STORY. Give copies to your friends.

13. Tell the USS Liberty story to friends and co-workers. Invite them to learn more online at http:/www.ussliberty.org or by Googling for USS Liberty.

14. If you have a web site, click this link, copy the HTML code you see in red, and place it in your site to link to USS Liberty.

Also, I suggest when writing Congress, display your letters on the "Letter to Leaders" section so other Americans may learn about this cover-up! ~ E_T

In case anyone is interested... here is a good "form letter" to send to your reps.

Dear [congressional representative name],

As an American citizen, I`m sure you recall the phase `with liberty and justice for all` from the `˜Pledge of Allegiance.` Unfortunately, for the survivors and victims` families of the June 8, 1967, USS Liberty attack, `justice for all` has proven to be an unfulfilled promise. But by your understanding and active support, their long quest for justice may be realized.

On June 8, 1967, during the Israeli-Arab `Six Day War," the USS Liberty (AGTR-5) -- a lightly armed, antenna laden, clearly marked U.S. Navy electronic and signal intelligence (ELINT/SIGINT) ship -- was suddendly and aggressively attacked during mid-afternoon, on a clear day, while in international waters off the coast of northern Sinai, by multiple Israeli air force jet fighter aircraft and navy torpedo boats. The surprise attack occurred without provocation and lasted over one hour. The Israelis attacked with rockets, napalm bombs, cannons, machine guns, and torpedoes. The attack killed 34 and wounded over 170 crewmembers, and grossly damaged the large ship `“ almost to the point of sinking.

The Israelis claim the wanton and prolonged attack was an accident, due to mistaken identity; but this claim is strongly and creditability refuted by surviving crewmembers. Also, many high-ranking US Government officials of that time, like former Secretary of State Dean Rusk and former CIA director Richard Helms, have expressed their strong and expert opinion that the attack was not an accident. Dean Rusk: `I didn`t believe them then, and I don`t believe them to this day. The attack was outrageous.` Richard Helms: `¦the Israelis knew exactly what they were doing in attacking the Liberty.`

Two days after the attack, on June 10th, a U.S. Navy Court of Inquiry (COI) was formed and began an unusual and extremely time (seven-day) and scope (not allowed to interview Israeli participants) limited investigation aboard the ship, as she slowly made her way to Malta for dry-docking, recovery of the dead and repairs.

The COI was a fact-finding body, and not tasked with determining culpability. Nonetheless, the COI issued an opinion that, based on available evidence, the attack appeared accidental.

Recently, the COI`s legal counsel, retired Navy JAG Captain, Ward Boston, came forward and declared, in a signed affidavit, to the effect that he has certain knowledge that the COI`s findings were influenced by political pressure, and that certain incriminating facts were removed or not entered into the proceeding`s record; thus, impeaching the court and its findings.

The COI is the only known investigation conducted by the U.S. Government. There are claims that many other investigations were conducted, but no evidence supports these claims. In fact, just the contrary is the case. Also, there is a recent statement, in a letter marked 5890, Ser 15.151.A1/0198, March 16, 2005, from the Navy Judge Advocate General Corps to Congressman Rob Simmons of Connecticut: "The Court of Inquiry was the only United States Government investigation into the [USS Liberty] attack."

To this day, the Israeli government holds steadfastly to its claim that the attack was an accident. Soon after the attack, the Israeli government issued an apology. Eventually, the Israeli government issued monetary compensation to the survivors and victim`s families, a token payment for damages to the ship, and then considered the matter closed by this `civil` settlement. But even if accepted as an accident, the attack was a prima facia war crime. Under international Laws of War, the Israeli attackers had a duty to positively identify the vessel as a belligerent before attacking. There were no exigent circumstances and the attackers had every means and time at their disposal to establish the vessel`s nationality or identity. Similar cases during WW2 resulted in war crimes trials and harsh punishment; but for some reason, the Rule of Law was set aside and justice denyed in this case.

Today, an international incident of this magnitude, even with one of our allies, would certainly merit a thorough investigation, and likely a Congressional investigation. As a democratic republic, with an open government that serves its people, we need to clearly demonstrate to both our allies and enemies that we do not tolerate and easily dismiss or forget criminal and murderous attacks against our citizens and military forces.

I urge you to take this matter under serious consideration, support a call for investigative action by the Department of Defense on the June 8, 2005, USS Liberty Veterans Associations War Crimes Report that the DOD now holds, and work to convince your peers in Congress of the need for a thorough and fair investigation.

Sincerely,


Your Name

There is significant momentum now.

The anniversary is approaching.

What you can do to help!


Furthermore, It is not just a matter of Justice and Treason and Betrayal!  It is a matter of Israel being held to account; not affording them impunity to commit further false-flags facilitating full scale WWIII.

Seems we are pretty much back where we were a year ago, when it looked like Olmert might mount some kind of provocation involving Iran. Perhaps President Obama should send Adm. Mullen back to Israel.

And perhaps this time Mullen should take Terry Halbardier with him.

Netanyahu needs to be confronted without delay. And June 8, the 42nd anniversary of the attempted sinking of the USS Liberty, could prove an interesting time to be in Tel Aviv.

I'm quite certain that you honestly believe in the purposes of your advocacy... And I am definitely opposed to banishment ~ your mere presence is a testimony to the value of this forum... Your absence would suggest that we are wasting our time here...

Mr. Napalm GelIGNITE wants to send you to "Ahron" Cristol's website. 

Please see the Survivor's website...

and the big lie regarding the traitor, israel apologist Ahron Cristol...

http://www.ussliberty.org/thebiglie.htm


Ahron Jay Cristol
A. Jay Cristol, a U.S. bankruptcy court judge who wrote `The Liberty Incident,` said in the book that 10 U.S. and three Israeli investigations have found no evidence of any Israeli intent to attack an American ship.

I think everyone should, if they want a balanced approach.

I don't agree with your ideas or conclusions in the Liberty matter or the Two Towers, but I must say, Jelly, I admire your commitment and persistence, and your good manners in pursuing your positions. In such a way one can really have a civilised disagreement.

First of all, as per your link, you didn't anonymize it with NOLAJBS software, personally, I wouldn't go ten feet near Ahron's website or any other Israeli apologist websites without an anonymizer ... affording "them" IP addresses of those interested in the Incident.

From the USS Liberty Website:

The only American government investigation of any kind was the U.S.Navy Court of Inquiry in 1967. That inquiry examined only the performance of the crew and the adequacy of communications and avoided entirely the question of whether the attack was deliberate, accepting "at face value" the Israeli claim that the attack was an accident. That inquiry has been dismissed by its own legal counsel, legal counsel to the convening authority and numerous other key figures as fraudulent. Yet Mr. Cristol persists in his false reports. Unfortunately, the big lie has been repeated so often that it is widely repeated even by Members of Congress as if it were established fact. Moreover, we have a letter from the Librarian of Congress verifying that there has never been such an investigation which is reproduced below.

We have repeatedly requested that Mr. Cristol explain, justify, remove or stop repeating his false claim. He declines to do so or to respond -- although his failure to keep the book in print is a statement in itself.

Meanwhile, Cristol ignores our specific request for comment.

The Library of Congress confirms that Congress has never held hearings or launched an investigation into the attack on USS Liberty. Mr. Cristol's account is false. We have repeatedly asked him to remove his false report from his web site. He declines to reply or to correct the false claim despite frequent requests for him to do so.

You are viewed as a total Jewish traitor whose idea of "balance" is to place Jews and their treason beyond reproach.  You are in the wrong forum.  You need to find a forum of Jews where you would actually get a hearing.  Your balance is so lopsided towards pure evil that you become an inferiorating irritant that highlights Jewish evil.
