Al Gore’s failed Progressive network was bought out by the country of Qatar, an oil rich Arab Muslim country and financial supporter of Islamist terrorist groups around the world. On January 11, 2015, the DISH network aired what was touted to be an unbiased documentary hit piece against the tiny nation of Israel. It centered on an almost unnoticed event which occurred on June 8, 1967—when Israel was only 19 years old.
Around 600 B.C. King Nebuchadnezzar II conquered the Kingdom of Israel, virtually wiping it off the face of the map leaving only the Southern Kingdom of Judea which was destroyed by the Romans during the second century A.D. Then on May 14, 1948, a historical first happened; after over 2,500 years the Nation of Israel was reborn—against all odds—as prophesied by the prophet Ezekiel (Ezekiel 37: 21).
Fact: after only 19 years as a new country, the tiny nation of Israel— almost 1/3 the size of California’s San Bernardino county—received information that they were about to be attacked by the Egyptian Air Force and five other Arab Islamic nations. Compared to Israel, those Arab nations had a land mass totaling that of the United States of America. Despite promises made to the United States government that Israel would not attack its neighbors first, it was either a first strike or total annulation. (Israel did not want to repeat the past when she became a nation on May 14, 1948, and was immediately attacked by her Arab Muslim neighbors at the cost of much Israeli territory.)
Not wishing to have a repeat of having to fight overwhelming odds, Israel did the only intelligent thing any sovereign country could do—it struck a crushing blow against the Egyptian Air Force which already had its planes lined up on the runways ready to go while the Egyptian pilots were having a pre-attack breakfast. Thus began what has become known as Israel’s “Six Day War!”
In the Mediterranean Sea, the United States had a jet aircraft carrier fleet (according to the documentary) 500 miles from Israel. There was one exception—a lone American naval spy ship—the USS Liberty—was off the coast of Egypt.
The documentary was a one hour propaganda piece that presented alleged voice recordings (obtained only through Al-Jazeera sources) of Israeli war planes identifying the Liberty as a ship flying the American flag; yet these Al-Jazeera tapes supposedly expose Israeli operatives discussing plans to attack the spy vessel anyway. The evidence Al-Jazeera presented was damning as well as very limited, consisting of only a very few sentences. Despite this, one could not be completely sure if what was alleged as Israeli pilots and their base communications was in fact real Israeli sources—edited Israeli sources—manufactured dialogue recorded in a modern studio or the real thing.
We have only the word of an avid anti-Israeli organization. It is questionable why anyone would think much of this so-called documentary. A study of Islam might shed some light. In Islam it is perfectly allowable for a Muslim to fabricate information or outright lie about Islam if the outcome promotes an Islamic agenda’s success. This technique of using lies to justify the ends is called “taqiyya” (ta-qi-ya).
The attack of the lone American spy ship by the Israeli armed forces leaves more questions unanswered than answered. We were told that the spy ship could not communicate with its attackers by radio because it was asserted that the Israelis had jammed all the ship’s frequencies, so why didn’t the captain of the Liberty lower his colors and raise a white flag of surrender?
Why was the spy ship flying a large parade flag rather than the standard issue? Could the Israeli Navy and aircraft possibly think this was an Arab Muslim ploy (taqiyya) used to listen in on Israeli military traffic and thereby gain an upper hand on what the Israeli military was planning? Why didn’t the captain turn the ship around and head out to sea in the opposite direction of Israel, thereby showing it was no threat? Why was there only one lone American spy vessel with a minimum of armaments in a war zone off the coast of Egypt?
Another disturbing reality is that Israel was fighting a massive war against six Arab nations, so why would she pick a fight with her closest ally, the United States, and take a chance of inviting the wrath of one of the greatest military powers in the world—especially when the United States had a large naval force within a 500 mile radius and an aircraft carrier with a full complement of jet aircraft that could come to the Liberty’s rescue in less than an hour along with a carrier group that could strike a deadly blow against the little country of Israel? Even though the Liberty was allegedly not able to send out a distress signal, presumably many other countries, including the United States, were monitoring the area precisely because it was a war zone. Why didn’t the American carrier fleet contact Tel Aviv and warn Israel to stand down with their aggressive actions against the USS Liberty?
Was Israel just a collection of unsavvy traitorous military buffoons as the Islamist network, Al-Jazeera, would have us believe, or was there more to the story? Why would Israel want to pick a fight with her only ally, the United States, while she was being attacked on all fronts by six Arab nations who were supplied with armaments and tanks from Russia, a powerful nation who at any moment could become provoked into joining her Arab allies against Israel?
Finally, Al-Jazeera exposes the actual names behind the curtain secrecy used to hide the true identities of President Johnson’s powerful advisers and financial supporters. This information was acquired by the Arab News Agency from the sealed records created during Israel’s Six Day War. Thanks to Al-Jazeera’s expose, we are lead to believe that they were all money-grubbing Jewish bankers and financers! The conclusion to be drawn by the audience of this celebrated Emmy Award-winning Islamic news agency is that the Jews controlled the White House and that President Johnson sold out the dead American sailors and their families at the bidding of his rich Jewish overlords.
For those of you who study Nazi-Arab Islamic relations that existed during WWII, you will recall the ever so popular Nazi fabrication of “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.” This was a book alleging a 19th century conspiracy that Jews planned to take over the world which Hitler used as propaganda to prove all the problems of Germany could be laid at the feet of the dirty Jews, a hit piece that is still being promoted in Islamic countries even to this day!
It seems with Al-Jazeera’s shocking documentary, “The Day Israel Attacked America,” that the Islamic hatred of the Jews—who Allah condemned to become “apes and pigs” (sûrah 5:60)—has made good use of Islamic propaganda which has not abated, but morphed into a more sophisticated means of delivering attacks against the Jews and the little Jewish democracy called Israel, surrounded by a sea of Islamic hate and the Islamic state controlled Al Jazeera Media Network!
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Al Jazeera admittedly does produce many even-handed news items as an attempt to receive acceptability and credibility. Consider this: If you sat down to a dinner of Chateaubriand and lobster with an exquisite salad and carafe of French wine, would you still eat this delectable gourmet culinary delight if you knew that 90 % of the meal was made in one of the world’s finest kitchens prepared by world-class chiefs, but contained 10% strychnine?
