June 8, 1967, is a day which will
live in infamy. On this day an American Navy vessel, the
Liberty, was deliberately
attacked in international waters by the armed forces of
Israel in a treacherous attempt to sink the ship and kill
everyone aboard it. The Liberty was an electronic
intelligence gathering vessel, and it had been sent to
the eastern Mediterranean to monitor radio communications.
Israel had launched its latest land-grabbing war against
its neighbors just four days earlier, and the U.S. government
was curious as to what its Jewish "ally" was up to.
The Jews, on the other hand, were quite
determined that the United States not learn what they
were doing. The Jewish plan was to grab as much Arab land
as possible before the United States could figure out
what was going on and begin insisting that Israel halt
its latest aggression. The Jews did not want the United
States, their principal source of military, economic,
and diplomatic support to tell them to "cool it" until
they had achieved all of their objectives, and so it was
important to the Jewish warlords to keep the American
military in the dark for a few more days.
Early on the morning of June 8, 1967, the
Liberty was just over 12 miles off the Egyptian
coast in international waters and in sight of the Egyptian
town of El Arish, monitoring radio signals and flying
a large American flag. Jewish forces had occupied El Arish
two days earlier, and the Israeli Army was involved in
killing a large number of Egyptian prisoners of war that
very morning. Groups of Egyptian prisoners were marched
into the desert, made to dig their graves, and then were
shot by their Jewish captors. American personnel on the
Liberty would not have been able to see these
atrocities from more than 12 miles away, but they were
intercepting Israeli radio communications discussing local
Of much more serious concern to the Jews
was the interception by the Liberty of radio
communications concerning their strategic military intentions:
specifically their planned invasion of Syria.
Just after dawn, a twin-engine, propeller-driven
Israeli reconnaissance plane flew out from the coast and
slowly circled the Liberty three times. A
little before 9:00 AM an Israeli jet fighter flew out
and circled the Liberty. Throughout the morning
and early afternoon, the Jews sent one aircraft after
another out to circle the Liberty. Some of
these aircraft flew so low that the crew members aboard
the Liberty could see the faces of the pilots.
The Jews were keeping the Liberty under very
close observation and seemed to be concerned about the
presence of the eavesdropper.
The Israelis finally decided to get rid
of this threat to the secrecy of their military operations.
At 2:00 PM several Israeli jet fighters streaked out from
the coast and without warning began raking the Liberty
from stem to stern with rockets, 30-mm cannon fire,
and napalm. A number of Americans on the bridge and deck
of the Liberty were killed immediately. The
Jewish aircraft made pass after pass over the ship, pouring
their fire into the helpless, slow-moving American target,
riddling it from stem to stern with explosive ordnance
and leaving it looking like a floating piece of Swiss
cheese. The hull and superstructure of the Liberty
had 821 holes larger than a man's fist from the
rocket and cannon fire. Among other things the Jewish
air attacks had shot away the Liberty’s radio
antennas and wrecked the radio room.
As soon as the Israeli jets had exhausted
their munitions and flown off, the crew immediately ran
up another American flag to replace the one the Jews had
shot away. The new flag was an oversize one, seven feet
high and 13 feet long. Then, while the crew was fighting
fires started by the aerial napalm attacks and attempting
to tend to the wounded and dying men on the deck, three
Israeli torpedo boats appeared and began raking the decks
of the Liberty with 20-mm and 40-mm automatic
cannon fire. The Liberty's life rafts in
the water were machine-gunned by the Israelis. Then a
torpedo from one of the torpedo boats struck the ship,
tearing a large hole in its side below the waterline and
killing 22 more crew members.
Just before the torpedo struck, the Liberty's
radiomen had managed to rig an emergency antenna
and get an auxiliary transmitter working. Throughout the
attack the Jews were using radio jamming equipment in
an attempt to drown out any radio message from the Liberty.
Nevertheless, the Liberty managed
to get off one radio message to the U.S. Sixth Fleet reporting
the attack and calling for help. The Sixth Fleet, to the
west in the Mediterranean, responded with a message that
help was being sent. The U.S. aircraft carriers America
and Saratoga launched jets which sped
toward the Liberty.
As soon as the Jews realized that the Sixth
Fleet had received the Liberty's signal,
the attacks were halted. The clear intention of the Jews
had been to disable the ship's radio communications and
then sink it before a radio message could be sent. Any
survivors in the water then would have been killed by
the Jews. No one would be able to prove the Jews had done
it, and it could be blamed on the Egyptians.
As soon as the Jews understood that their
scheme had failed, they shifted from the military to the
diplomatic mode. The murderous assault on the U.S.S.
Liberty had been a "mistake," the Jews claimed.
They had thought the ship was Egyptian, they told their
media friends and their bought politicians in Washington.
President Lyndon Johnson didn't even wait
for this excuse from the Jews. As soon as he was given
word that an American Navy vessel had been attacked by
the Israelis and that the U.S. Sixth Fleet was sending
help, he ordered that the help be recalled. He was terrified
that the U.S. aircraft would inflict casualties on the
Jews attacking the Liberty, and the Jews
would blame him. If the Jewish attack on the Liberty
became a public "incident" involving conflict between
the United States and Israel, Johnson would be forced
to take the American side and might be regarded as "anti-Israel,"
which would turn America's Jews against him. So he sent
an emergency message to the Sixth Fleet, ordering that
the American jets flying to the relief of the Liberty
be recalled and that no further assistance be given.
Perhaps the stricken ship would sink, and the whole matter
could be hushed up.
But the U.S.S. Liberty did
not sink, much to the embarrassment of the Jews and their
collaborators. The survivors among the crew even managed
to get the ship's engines running again, and the Liberty
limped out to sea, eventually rendezvousing the
next day with an American destroyer, the U.S.S. Davis.
The wounded crewmen -- 171 of them -- were airlifted off
the ship. Many of the dead -- 34 of them --- could not
be recovered from the interior of the ship until it had
reached port in Malta.
Even while the wounded crewmen were in a
Naval hospital, they were given strict orders not to tell
anyone, not even members of their families, about the
Jewish attack on their ship. The U.S. Navy went through
the formalities of holding a court of inquiry, but it
was a complete sham. No Israelis were even questioned
during the inquiry, and the U.S. government meekly accepted
the Jews' explanation that the attack on the Liberty
had been a "mistake." The news media were indecently
silent about the whole affair. The obvious concern of
the Jews and their sympathizers in the United States was
not that an American ship had been attacked treacherously
and 34 Americans killed; their concern was only to keep
Israel from being blamed for the attack. And the politicians
were all too eager to go along with the Jews.
The members of the Liberty's crew
who had been wounded during the Israeli attack asked for
damages from the Israeli government. The Israelis refused
to pay, and it was necessary for the wounded crewmen to
hire attorneys and file suit. When the Israelis did eventually
pay, nearly two years later, attorneys' fees ate up most
of the payment.
The commanding officer of the Liberty
during the Israeli attack was Captain William McGonagle.
Though severely wounded during the attack he remained
at his post throughout and behaved in a heroic manner.
A year after the attack Captain McGonagle was awarded
the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroism, but
so desperate was President Lyndon Johnson to avoid offending
the Jews that he refused to present the medal himself,
as always has been customary. Instead of receiving his
Medal of Honor from the President in the customary White
House ceremony, McGonagle was quietly given the medal
by the secretary of the Navy at the Washington Navy Yard,
so as to attract the least possible public attention.
The citation accompanying the medal, which customarily
describes in detail the action for which the medal is
being awarded, carefully omitted any mention of Israel.
The Washington Post did not even report the
One of the Liberty's officers,
Lieutenant James Ennes, wrote a detailed account of the
Jewish attack on his ship and its aftermath, and his account
was published in 1979 as a book under the title Assault
on the Liberty. The Jews immediately began a campaign
to keep the book out of bookstores and to keep reviews
of the book out of newspapers. This campaign was much
like the one the Jews have been conducting against one
of my books, The Turner Diaries. Ennes reports
that whenever a bookstore would stock his book, the local
Jews would begin complaining to the store owner that the
book is "anti-Israel" and is "offensive to Jewish people
everywhere." The Jews have been fairly successful in keeping
the book out of the hands of the public, and it is now
out of print and generally unavailable.
I have been able to obtain a number of copies
of the original hardback edition of Assault on the
Liberty directly from Lieutenant Ennes, so this
book is available from National Vanguard Books, the publisher
of Free Speech. If you would like a copy

web page. The button for the catalog is on our home page.
To his credit Lieutenant Ennes has kept
the truth about the Jewish attempt to sink the Liberty
alive for 30 years, in the face of a concerted
effort by the controlled media, the Jewish establishment,
and the U.S. government, including the U.S. Navy, to kill
this truth. In return for his efforts, the Jews and their
collaborators have been calling Ennes an "anti-Semite,"
a "neo-Nazi," a "professional Jew-hater," and lots of
things that are too crude for me to write. Among these
collaborators of the Jews attacking Ennes are individuals
claiming to be veterans and patriots, but it is clear
where their allegiance really lies.
Ennes always has declined to respond in
kind to these attacks and has been unfailingly polite.
We might fault him for failing to draw some general conclusions
about the Jews and for continuing to maintain that he
is not anti-Jewish, but let us instead
credit him for standing up for the truth in his own way
against the almost unbelievably intense barrage of hatred
that has been directed against him.
What should be shocking and disgusting to
every American, what should outrage us all, is not the
lies of the Jews or their attacks on Lieutenant Ennes
-- we expect that sort of behavior from the Jews -- but
rather we should be outraged by the collaboration of the
U.S. government with the Jews. During the attack on the
Liberty, when it was calling for help and
was in danger of being sunk, President Lyndon Johnson
recalled the U.S. aircraft that were rushing to assist
the Liberty. He was more concerned about
not offending the Jews in the United States than he was
about his responsibility as commander-in-chief of America's
And Johnson's recall of these American jets
cannot be explained away as a mix-up or a misunderstanding
in the heat of the moment. This action of Johnson's was
deliberate. It was consistent with his behavior in every
instance involving the Liberty. Johnson even
checked with the Israeli ambassador a year after the attack
to see if the government of Israel had any objection to
Captain McGonagle's receiving the Congressional Medal
of Honor, and then he refused to present the medal himself.
That sort of behavior goes beyond outrageous, even for
a Democratic politician. It is nothing but the basest
Now do you understand why we have a piece
of filth like Bill Clinton in the White House? We had
a piece of filth in the White House 30 years ago. It is
the system itself which is filthy, and so it should be
no surprise when filthy individuals rise to the top of
One of these days we have to change the
system itself radically, but that will take a full-scale
revolution. What we must do until then is make ourselves
heard. What we must do is raise our voices. The reason
that Israel is able to lead America around by the nose
is that the Jews, through their control of the news and
entertainment media in America, have the only effective
voice, the only voice that the damnable politicians respond
to. Lyndon Johnson didn't betray the men of the Liberty
because he loved Jews. Nobody loves Jews. They
are the most unlovable race on this earth. Johnson behaved
as he did because he feared the Jews. And he feared them
because he knew that they control the political process
in this country through their control of the media.
That is the key fact, the salient fact,
the most important fact in the life of our people today:
Jewish control of the media.
Why do you think the Jews did such a rash
thing as attack the Liberty in the first
place? That, after all, was a very rash thing to do. If
the United States were a nation led by honorable men,
a nation in control of its own destiny, such an attack
would have meant the end of Israel's existence right then
and there. Why did the Jews do it? Are they stupid?
I think not. They did it because they knew
they could get away with it. They did it because it might
have worked, and they had nothing to lose if it didn't
work. They knew they could get away with it. And they
knew they could get away with it because they control
our news and entertainment media.
And so here we are, 30 years into this shameful
episode, 30 years after the treacherous and arrogant attack
by Israel on the U.S.S. Liberty which killed
34 Americans and wounded 171 of them -- an attack which
was intended to kill everyone aboard our ship. And for
30 years the media have maintained their blanket of silence,
and the politicians have maintained their sickening pretense
about our "gallant, little Jewish ally" in the Middle
East. This is the Jewish ally which continues to moan
to the world about how it is "persecuted" by everyone
else and continues to make demands on the world for money
which it claims the world owes it.
Our politicians make pious speeches about
China's abuse of human rights -- and I have no doubt that
the charges against China are true -- but then these same
politicians vote for more of our money to be given to
Israel, a country which murders prisoners of war wholesale
and which routinely tortures Palestinians suspected of
wanting freedom for their people. These are the same politicians
who vote for laws requiring that our children be brainwashed
with Jewish propaganda about the so-called "Holocaust"
in their schools and who express their abhorrence of "anti
-Semitism" whenever any American, such as Lieutenant Ennes,
tells the nasty truth about our "gallant, little Jewish
Surely, the citizens of Sodom and Gomorra
were paragons of virtue and rectitude compared to the
current inhabitants of Congress, the White House, and
the Federal courts. And surely, what happened to the citizens
of Sodom and Gomorra will happen to them.
But until that cleansing fire comes, let
us raise our voices. Let us speak out ever more boldly
and ever more loudly. Let us remind all of our fellow
citizens about the U.S.S. Liberty. And let
us resolve now that we will put an end to the shame that
has been brought on us by our government and by the controlled
