"As a survivor of the June 8, 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty," Meadors said, "I am fully aware of the tactics the Israelis are capable of and willing to use with impunity and without remorse. That time they fired machine guns, cannon, rockets, napalm, and torpedoes on us, then deliberately machine-gunned life rafts we had dropped over the side in anticipation of abandoning ship. And the only response from the American government was to impose a gag order on the crew of the USS Liberty."
"There is no doubt that the Israelis were committing piracy on the high seas against the Freedom Flotilla and used deadly force against unarmed humanitarians whose only crime was defending themselves against a sea and airborne invasion by heavily armed aggressors." -Navy Vet. & Freedom Flotilla participant Joe Meadors
History unfolds itself in cycles. "Those who do not remember history are bound to repeat it." The question is, what can be learned? The answer is everything. And nothing. It all depends on the observer. Science now understands that the observer of an experiment cannot be separated from the experiment itself. The observer in any experiment IS an integral part of the experiment. One can not exist without the other.
Human affairs are not so different from forces at work in the universe. A few years ago, the comet Shoemaker-Levy was derailed from its previous orbit by the planet Jupiter. As the comet passed the gas giant, it was broken into many pieces and changed direction. This interaction in 1992 led to the impact of the comet fragments into the atmosphere of Jupiter. This Initial "close approach" of the comet was, in retrospect, the culminating event that would eventually lead to the cosmic collision.
We see spirals, whirlpools, vortexes, and loops in nature all around us. We also see these shapes repeatedly carved into rock from ages past. We reap what is sown. Thus the cyclic pattern manifests. At times, a bitter harvest can be the impetus for change. More often than not it is passed along and tolerated in order to keep the money machine rolling. Thus, the overall cycle continues, while more and more souls become aware, until something has to give.
Over 40 years ago, the Israelis destroyed, with no provocation, the USS Liberty. No aid was sent/fighter jets were called off, no congressional investigation ever undertaken, and a Gag Order was imposed on the surviving Crew members. To this day, Nothing has changed. The Israelis have just murdered peaceful/gunless people, on international waters, in order to continue the immoral blockade & ruthless control of Gaza. The United States government has done NOTHING to protect the rights of the members of the Freedom Flotilla, or the people of Palestine, the majority of whom are young people and children.
So for those involved in, or at least paying attention to the ‘experiment’
much can be learned... again.
We learn again that the Government in Washington is complicit in and yet powerless to the policies of Israel... Israelis receive BILLIONS of Dollars of US Aid each YEAR, and then go and do whatever they please. Including running said Palestinians out of their homes, burning them with napalm, blockading Gaza, and forcing the Native population to exist in ghettos reminiscent of the Jewish ghettos circa WWII, but it is happening now, that is the difference.
The cycle will continue until the critical mass of informed, intelligent, enlightened human beings decide to actively participate in the experiment and affect the results.
Such a ‘close approach’ of heavenly bodies/freedom flotillas cannot help but to alter the present cycle of human awareness, and hopefully, send us all headlong into a cosmic collision of evolutionary thinking.
Just as Jupiter’s force succeeded in breaking up the comet, Israel’s success in breaking up the flotilla appears to have had a similar affect of creating the situation for many more to splinter off and come heading for port…
I personally feel we are very close to the tipping point.
May we all do what we may to shine light and attract attention towards
the dark architects of the human experience.
They do not like the light of day, we do.
Shine on brave souls.
