Abstract

Today is June 8, 2021, a day to observe two minutes of silence to honor the memory of the 36 US Navy sailors who were brutally killed by Israeli jet fighters and torpedo boats. On the same day, June 8, 1967, 167 sailors were wounded and strafed with napalm.

Fifty-four (54) years later these brave soldiers have yet to be recognized for their valor. Since that shameful day, every US Administration, Secretary of Defense, Pentagon Brass, and a whole passel of corrupt politicians have refused to acknowledge this heinous act because Israel and her politicians are Washington’s darlings. And for this brazenly murderous assault, billions upon billions have been showered on a nation that thrives on hatred, racism, apartheid, religious fanaticism, and war mongering.

Joe Biden and his ilk proclaim that they are fighting for the soul of America.
