The Liberty Story Is A Microcosm To A Much Bigger Middle East Problem


Today is the 53rd anniversary of the attack on the USS Liberty by “our greatest ally”. Every true American should read the Liberty story. It is probably one of the most suppressed stories in American history and it will make you reexamine our allegiance to Zionist Israel. Read the truth from a Liberty survivor below.


The Liberty Story Is A Microcosm To A Much Bigger Middle East Problem
By Ernie Gallo, USS Liberty Survivor

I am here to tell a shocking, alarming, and hopefully interesting story.  Why listen to anything I have to say?  I am here not to tear down our wonderful country but to alert you to an untenable Middle East situation.  The American Israeli bond is formed based on lies and deceit to the American public.  Israel is so powerful, to include over 200 nuclear warheads, that they do not need our sons and daughters to fight their wars.  I believe a case can be made that if America guarantees Israel’s security and the American public has been deceived by both countries, how can we commit our sons and daughters to that security?  Furthermore, why on earth do we give foreign aid to Israel, the 22nd richest country in the world?  Suggestion:  The aforementioned 3.5 Billion Dollars a year could instead provide increased security in our schools.  Additionally, it is illogical for America to be fighting ancient wars between the Shiites, Sunnis, and the Kurds.  America should remove itself from the Middle East as quickly as possible.  Let me explain.

But first, every year on June 8th around noon in Washington, DC, we remember, mourn, and honor 34 USS Liberty crew (31 sailors, 2 marines, and a NSA civilian) who were killed by Israeli Defense Forces during the Arab-Israeli war.  Our 34, who were sons, brothers, husbands, shipmates, and friends, will not return from our ill-fated May 1967 African cruise.  The sorrow knife is still painful to a number of Liberty families.  May all USS Liberty shipmates that have passed rest in peace in the arms of our loving Lord.

We will not go quietly into the night!  Living through this nightmare for over 51 years, the Liberty crew has observed deceit and wrongdoing by our government with no help from the media.  Given the chance, we have the details and proof that would stand up in a court of law.  America gave us honesty and integrity to be assigned to a highly classified intelligence ship.  You taught us to determine what is right and wrong.  You gave us the passion and the will to complete our mission despite any adversity.  Yet the Navy, at the behest of the White House, abandoned us under fire.  Yes, America, you abandoned us.  Why?  Our adversaries never realized that our love of country would compel us to keep on fighting for the truth to be known about the cowardly attack.  America, you taught us that we would be remiss if we did not stand up for this terrible wrong.  That is why I am here.

On June 8, 1967, the Israelis deliberately and viciously attacked the USS Liberty at 2 PM for 90 minutes on a sunny day in the Mediterranean Sea after Israeli planes observed us all morning.  We are here to tell you our ensign was proudly flying, yet the Israelis claimed they did not know that we were a United States Navy vessel.  Our size and markings were absolutely different from the Egyptian ship they claimed we resembled.  Nevertheless, after 831 bulkhead penetrations, a 39 by 24 foot torpedo hole in our starboard side, napalm canisters dropped port and starboard, 34 were killed and 174 wounded; 2/3 of the crew was taken out.  Since they used torpedoes, it was the attempted murder of 294 Americans.  Since all lifeboats were destroyed and inflatable life rafts were machine-gunned by the Israeli motor torpedo boats, our only hope to survive was to rescue and care for our wounded, maintain water-tight integrity, and maintain our propulsion system.  By the grace of God that’s what we did.

We did not have the ability to fight back, as the Liberty was not a man-of-war but an intelligence ship.  The Israelis knew that, and the Liberty was safe target practice.  They attacked with fighter aircraft, fighter bombers, 3 torpedo boats, and 2 helicopters with commandos aboard (however, they were called back).  When all was said and done, the U.S. government indicated that the attack was accidental, and our attackers were then given a free pass by President Lyndon Baines Johnson.  In addition, the White House ordered a gag order to anyone knowing these details as part of a cover-up.  The political benefit to LBJ must have been enormous.  He immediately reversed an Eisenhower and Kennedy arms embargo to Israel, and the U.S. arms manufacturers have been benefiting ever since.

Did the Israelis know they were attacking an American ship?  Absolutely!  Unbeknownst to the Liberty and the Israelis, there was a U.S. Air Force intelligence aircraft flying nearby and taping the conversations between the attacking aircraft and their ground controllers.  In real time, the Hebrew linguist sent his translation to an Air Force station in Crete.  Lt. Richard Block was on duty, and he realized the importance of the transmission and sent it out on the Air Force Security Group circuit.  Lt. Steve Forsland and Lt. Ronald Gotcher have told us the same story— all working at different locations.  That is, the Israeli aircraft told the ground controllers that it was indeed an American ship, but their ground controllers told them to “take out the target.”  We know the original order came from the Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan.

Our country sent us into wartime conditions; refused our request for a destroyer escort; prevented Sixth Fleet planes from coming to our aid; and then, ordered us never to talk about the attack to anyone.  The American public had no idea what happened to us. The gag order worked from 1967 until James Ennes’ book was published in 1979, entitled Assault on the Liberty.  Where were the investigative reporters?  I only know of one, John Crewdson from the Chicago Tribune, on October 2, 2007.  While the Baltimore Sun printed it, no one else carried the story.  Do you think the North Koreans paid attention as they took the USS Pueblo 9 months later?

Yes, America, the crew of the USS Liberty has been abandoned.  During the attack, after hearing our need for rescue, the Sixth Fleet launched aircraft only to be recalled, initially by McNamara and then by President Johnson.  Ironically, since the Israeli attacking aircraft were unmarked, we did not know who was attacking us at that time and, therefore, neither did the Sixth Fleet.  It could have been the Soviets.  Not knowing the attackers were Israeli, Rear Admiral Raymond Geis, commander of the Sixth Fleet, challenged the order.  However, LBJ, knowing it was the Israelis, stated, “I don’t care if the ship sinks, I will not have my ally embarrassed.”

The Navy Court of Inquiry turned out to be fraudulent, as indicated by Captain Ward Boston, Jr of the Navy Inquiry legal counsel in a sworn 2004 affidavit.  With sworn crews’ testimony under oath removed from the Inquiry Report, it indicated the attack was accidental and made no mention of the War Crimes committed.  What the hell?  Whatever happened to the Uniform Code of Military Justice?  Our conclusion is that 288 sailors, 3 marines, and 3 NSA civilians were denied justice by interference from the White House – That is judicial interference at the highest level.  When do our 34 deceased shipmates and their families receive justice?  Does it matter?

Hear us, America, as our Congress has not and will not investigate this attack even though our Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, mandates and I quote, “the House of Representative shall define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the law of nations.”  They have done so for every attack except one – the USS Liberty.  The second arm of our tripartite form of government – Congress – is collectively hiding under their desks, and that includes Senators Rubio and Nelson.  Why?  I have to wonder if AIPAC has control over most of Congress.

In seeking justice in 2005 (with the Israeli machine-gunning of our life rafts and shooting at our stretcher bearers in mind – both cited Geneva War Crimes), the USS Liberty Veterans Association filed a formal War Crimes Report to the Pentagon.  With our official request in hand, they refused to look into our claim whatsoever because the aforementioned Navy Court of Inquiry had completed the formal investigation, and a new investigation was not needed.  But wait a minute.  The Pentagon had to know that the Liberty crew were eyewitnesses to the crimes.  Following up on our War Crime would not be a good thing for the Israelis.  Are you getting the picture?

America, when the Liberty crew recites the Pledge of Allegiance, when do we receive “liberty and justice for all”?  What about our civil rights?

Now this is very important; please take note.  Since our truthful claim that the attack was deliberate and the power structure claims otherwise, we are then labeled bigots, anti-Semitic, evil, mean-spirited, and conspiracy theorists.  To capture some of the events that we have endured, I was so upset, I authored a book entitled, Liberty Injustices: A Survivor’s Account of American Bigotry.  If you want additional information, please read my book.  It is available at  If you are not angry after listening to me, you should well be after reading my book.  Food for thought:  How far will the U.S. Government go to place Israel before its own citizenry?

We thus suffer embarrassment and condemnations.  As a recent example, in my town of Palm Coast, Florida, I cannot have a 6 by 11-inch plaque honoring the Liberty placed in our Heroes Memorial Park because of their bigotry toward the USS Liberty.  Our town administrator stated that a segment of our citizens would be offended, as it states “attacked by Israel.”  As a combat veteran, I must assume their rights are better than mine.  Then, I had to endure their bitterness and comments implying I was a troublemaker.  Voltaire stated:  To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.

The Liberty crew was awarded 1 Medal of Honor, 2 Navy crosses, 12 Silver stars, 26 Bronze Stars, 208 Purple Hearts, the Presidential Unit Citation, and more.  The USS Liberty is the most decorated navy ship for a single engagement, and we are diminished and curtailed by the power structure from giving the USS Liberty the proper place and prestige warranted to this high honor in history.  To wit:  Our Skipper, Captain William McGonagle, received the Medal of Honor – not from LBJ, but at a low-level ceremony at the Washington Navy Yard from the Navy Secretary.  Press were not invited.

In addition, the Navy will not name a new Navy ship USS Liberty for fear of offending certain people.  Littoral combat ship (LCS 2) was supposed to be named USS Liberty to augment other LCS USS Freedom and USS Independence.  That lasted about two months, and the Liberty name was dropped.  However, soon the Navy will launch the USS Lyndon Baines Johnson destroyer.  This is the same man that gave our attackers a free pass for killing 34 Americans and for the attempted murder of 294.  He is the same supreme communist fighter who fraudulently created the Bay of Tonkin Resolution to build up Vietnam, killing thousands of American troops to get him re-elected in 1964.

Please, America, for the little time left for the crew, we are asking for justice as we will soon be joining our deceased shipmates.  Or, do we do everything to protect the holy name of Israel at all costs and the status quo?  Is that what you want?  No, I don’t think so.  I have faith in the collective American soul.  As a believer in prayer, I know our God will not let us down.

So, for those who are inspired, please pray for the USS Liberty crew.  Our support numbers are growing by leaps and bounds.  When our truth and justice comes, some folks are going to be very upset.  Please wake up America – soon!!

For the Christian Israeli supporters, do you think Jesus Christ would approve of killing women and children to make Israel biblically whole again?  That thought would be totally against all His New Testament teachings.  Think about it.

Why, America?  Why, America, can’t you see the controls being placed on the US Government’s direction, fairness, and sanity?  This is not the form of government our Founding Fathers created—inspired by God as the most humane form of governing the world has ever known, a government based on law.  It is in jeopardy.  Our grandkids will not have the same form of government we grew up in.  I pray God will bless America by using us to realize the tragedy that is taking place.  We are living it, and we are the case study!!  As a country, when did we cease to care for all people’s rights, including those living in and around the Holy Land?

In closing:  We must never forget the Holocaust; however, in concert, it is equally important for the future of the United States to never forget the USS Liberty.  Historians must get the Liberty story correct and accurate.  We still have War Crimes that need justice.  As sent to me from a Liberty supporter, paraphrasing wise words, “Choose you this day whom you will serve, Israelis or Americans.”

God bless all of you, and thank you for inviting us.  God bless America!

Holocaust Remembrance Day


Today marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp in 1945 by the Soviet Army, recognized internationally as Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let us not forget the millions of Jews, Gypsies, Christians, homosexuals, anti-Nazi dissidents, and the mentally and physically handicapped that perished under Nazism (National Socialism).

I will also say, since no one dares to bring this up except for the few that have the guts to tell the truth contrary to the politically correct viewpoint, that we must also not forget the people living in Palestine that are currently living in the same Auschwitz-like conditions brought about by the descendants of the Holocaust survivors in Israel. Let us not forget the 5.1 million people that have perished in the Palestinian genocide under the racial supremacy of Jewish Zionism. The truth is this – there is no difference between what Adolf Hitler’s Nazi government did to the Jews and what Israel’s Zionist government has been doing to the Palestinians since 1948. The only difference is is that one group of victims is more equal in the world’s eyes than the other. Like it or not, it’s the truth, and if it makes you angry so be it. I and others are growing tired of a certain group that constantly throws their victim status in the world’s collective faces to justify their crimes against humanity. And I am growing tired of the establishment history and media focusing exclusively on the Holocaust as if it were the only genocide that has happened in world history. Murder is murder, and victims of all genocides and government sanctioned mass murders should be remembered without any special elevation given to any one group. One would think that a society that now focuses heavily on equality would understand this truth, but as Orwell wrote, some animals are more equal than others.


God’s Chosen People?


I’m going to open up a barrel of worms today. Before I begin, I want to state clearly that I do not hate Jews nor do I support anti-Semitism. However, I’m sure that what I’m about to write will be labeled as “anti-Semitic”, even though it’s the Truth, by those who hold an affinity to the State of Israel and the Jewish people. So be it. The real truth is fast becoming hate speech in America today. Donald Trump just signed an executive order barring “anti-Semitic hate speech” in college campuses in the country. Soon, this will be a nationwide law where you cannot criticize Israel or their blatant war crimes against the Palestinians, or even question the true numbers that died in the Holocaust. The New Testament will be considered “anti-Semitic” contraband in the future New World Order.

I want to share some verses that most American Christians never have seem to have read since they still falsely believe that the “Jews” today in the State of Israel are “God’s chosen people”. All verses are taken out of the King James text. My commentary will be in RED.

For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. – Romans 2:28-29 (In this verse, the Apostle Paul states that the old covenant Law will not save the Jews, that they must be circumcised of the heart, which means they must have faith in Christ. When Christ died on the cross, his last words were, “IT IS FINISHED.” Jesus fulfilled the law and the covenant that God had with the Old Testament Jews. It’s over, it’s done. The Jews today that still abide by the old law, along with Talmudic and Kabbalistic teachings, reject Christ to this day and are not saved people. And just because they are “Jewish” doesn’t mean they get a free pass.)

What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? – Romans 3:1 (The Jews are not special, Paul clearly says there is no advantage to being a Jew.)

Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also. – Romans 3:29

For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. – Romans 9:6-8 (These verses clearly state that not all with Jewish lineage are the children of God. The children of the promise are the real children of God. Remember, the promise to Abraham was Jesus Christ, it wasn’t physical land and special status like the Zionists believe. Everyone who accepts and has faith in Christ are Abraham’s seed.)

As he saith also in O’see, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. – Romans 9:25-26 (The Lord says here that he will call the Gentile Christians, which were once not His people, as his people.)

And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.  And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? – Romans 11:17-24 (Emphasis mine. These verses should be the biggest indication that God’s covenant with the Jews no longer exists. The natural branches that were broken off are the JEWS. The wild olive tree that was grafted in are the Gentiles that have faith in Christ. Who then are God’s chosen people? Do you believe the Bible or do you believe your Christian Zionist preacher? Paul also admonishes Gentile Christians to fear God and to look at what happened to the non-believing Jews as an example to what will happen to them if they cease being faithful.)

Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. – Galatians 3:7  (Again, another indication that the Gentile Christians and the Jews that believe in Christ are the children of Abraham.)

Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many: but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. – Galatians 3:16 (The promise made to Abraham was fulfilled in Christ.)

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. – Galatians 3:28 (Again, Jews have no “special” status. This also indicates that both Jews and Gentiles that believe in Christ are one in Christ. This is the New Covenant that God has established. The old covenant has been abolished.)

And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. – Galatians 3:29

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. – Galatians 6:15-16 (Again, Paul clearly states that the true Israel are those that believe in Christ. Not people who call themselves the “chosen people” who carved out a land mass in Palestine and are perpetuating genocide to the inhabitants.)

These New Testament verses thoroughly squash the Zionist myth that the Jews are still God’s chosen people. Only Zionists still believe this myth and perpetuate their false special status as the means for racial superiority. Zionism is cut from the same cloth as Nazism. In their eyes, the rest of us are merely Goyim, or cattle that are to be enslaved and slaughtered like the Palestinian people are today. The New Testament is being labeled as an “anti-Semitic text” by the Zionist influences that permeate our society, government, and institutions. If you are a Christian it’s very important that you understand all of this. You are being led by a false teaching by these churches that are preaching this false Israel-first dispensationalism. Research C.I. Schofield and John Darby, the fathers of the modern day Zionist evangelical teachings. The Zionist State of Israel is not the true Israel of the Bible, they are in fact something much different:

I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. – Revelation 2:9

The State of Israel was created by the United Nations and the Rothschild banking family, not by God. The United Nations is part of the Beast system created by British Freemasonry after World War II. The Israelis today are steeped in the occult teachings of the Talmud and the Kabbalah. The Jewish occult and mystic teachings originated when the Jews were held in captivity in Babylon. Read the Old Testament, for it is filled with scores of examples of how the Jews angered the Lord by practicing the arcane religion of Mystery Babylon. It is the same religion of the Pharisees during Jesus’ day. Christ fought the Pharisees and Sadducees publicly and called them out on their blatant hypocrisy and false teachings:

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” – John 8:44

The Zionist Jews hate Christ to this very day. If you don’t believe me, then look what they have to say about Jesus in the Talmud. Gittin 57a states that Jesus “is in hell boiling in a cauldron of excrement“. Listen to what blasphemer Ben Shapiro, a conservative commentator and a Zionist Jew, has to say about Jesus Christ:

Ben Shapiro is an antichrist and a blasphemer. Why any conservative Christian reveres him is beyond me.

Take a look at the photo below. Does that look like Arabic or Hebrew writing to you? It is a Christian church in Israel vandalized by Zionist Jews with the spray painted messages of “Jesus was a monkey, Mary was a cow”. This happens all the time especially around Christmas and Easter and it almost never gets reported, but when someone spray paints a swastika on a synagogue, it makes national headlines. Keep in mind, there are Palestinian Christians that are being oppressed by the Israeli government. Those Palestinian Christians are our brothers and sisters in Christ. Why have American Christians turned their backs on them?


The modern State of Israel is a Satanic counterfeit that is seeking to undo what God did by bringing back the old covenant and putting the whole world under the rule of Talmudic law. As I’ve said before, Zionism is merely one of the major players on the world stage vying for world domination. It is another branch of Mystery Babylon. I implore every Christian to make the right choice to where your true allegiance lies. Does it lie with Christ? Or does it lie with Zionist faux Israel? And remember what Jesus said about serving two masters. I will write more on this in a future post.
