Allison Weir writes in her “If Americans Knew” newsletter:

On June 8, 1967 Israeli jets and torpedo boats tried to sink the USS Liberty, a U.S. Navy technical surveillance ship, with all men aboard. Israel did not succeed in sinking the ship, but did succeed in killing 34 Americans and injuring 175.

Surviving crew members and the families of those killed have called for a complete, honest investigation into the attack, but Israel and its partisans have called them “antisemitic” and worked to suppress their voices.

Two excellent documentaries on the attack can be viewed here and here..

We hope you’ll tell others about the attack and support the surviving crew members – and the families whose sons, fathers, husbands, and brothers were killed – in their demand for an honest, open investigation.

Thank you for helping us oppose cover-ups and support victims whose voices deserve to be heard.
