Cynthia McKinney Pens OpEd On Gaza Incident

Cynthia McKinney is a member of the Free Gaza movement which is currently embroiled in a controversy involving a humanitarian ship and an attack on that ship by Israeli commandos. She penned an OpEd about the controversy which can be read, in its entirety, here. The first couple of paragraphs follow.

I am outraged at Israel’s latest criminal act. I mourn with my fellow Free Gaza travelers, the lives that have been lost by Israel’s needless, senseless act against unarmed humanitarian activists.

But I’m even more outraged that once again, Israel’s actions have been aided and abetted by a US political class that has become corrupted beyond belief due to its reliance on Zionist finance and penetration by Zionist zealots for whom no US weapons system is too much for the Israeli war machine, and the silence of the world’s onlookers whose hearts have grown cold with indifference.

I recently visited the offices of IHH, the Turkish humanitarian organization that sponsored one of the Freedom Flotilla boats, and that was targeted by the Israelis for its murderous rampage.

Reports are still coming in as to the full extent of the senseless Israeli violence. Of course, I expect Israel’s apologists in the press and in the United States government to shift into high gear to support Israel’s lying machine.

Take note of their names. The 12,000 Internet squatters/written word grenade throwers, hired by the Israeli Foreign Ministry to defend Israel and attack peace activists online, are already busy spreading their orchestrated disinformation in cyberspace.

Be very careful what you read and believe from special interest press and the Internet. You could be reading one of Israel’s hired hacks. As a news diversion from what Israel has just done, I suspect that we can also expect to see a lot of historical footage of war’s atrocities on television: today is Memorial Day in the United States, a day long ago set aside to remember the sacrifices of US war dead.

I encouraged and supported USS Liberty veteran Joe Meadors’s participation in the Freedom Flotilla. Unfortunately, the fate of the USS Liberty innocents on the high seas, while in international waters, has now been visited upon the participants in the Freedom Flotilla, in large measure because of the congressional- and presidential-level cover-up of the 1967 Israeli attack on that US surveillance ship.

McKinney has, in the past, been on some of the ships attempting to breach the naval blockade of Gaza, in 2008 and 2009.

  1. Northern Exposure

    What a disgusting propaganda piece by this unstable dangerous woman. She is an Outrage! I wonder if she is even capable of understanding and speaking any truth?

  2. What a sad reputation for Northern Exposure ???????? ......... Lake

    Huh ?????? I am not McKinney fan, but YOU are the loon! Truth ???????? You obviously would not recognized the truth if it bit you on the ass.

    Like the world’s oldest living eleven year old [Space Cadet Captain Cody Banks Quirk] you seem to be stuck in the ‘personal association’ phase of organizational collaboration instead of graduating to the ‘professional mentality’ stage.

    Betcha if it was some one that you personally liked in the very exact same position your attitude would be radically different, due to the person and not the situation!

    Or indeed the color pigmentation of the individual that Northern exposure supported.

    Trust me, here in Minnesota where northern exposure is the reality, there are lots of open bigots all around.

    Again, the story is so much more logical if you have a hint at the back story! Michey, Erin go braugh, yer are a breath of fresh air, and I appreciate 90% of your posts.

    God bless logic and ethics!

    I am still recovering from the ‘make it’ year of 2008 but wish you only the best in 2010! I am glad you are still in the fight!

    What ever gripes I have against non Democans and non Republicrats —- at least they are not Dems and GOP, altho plenty of our ‘allies’ act (like the deform /reform party) like ‘big two’ moles!

  5. Prop 14 Supporter

    Abel Maldenado should shock the Republican Party after he win the presidential nomination in 2012, and pick Cynthia McKinney as his running mate. that’s the only way to save America.
