Thought Police within the so-called ‘Palestine Solidarity Movement’

thoughtpoliceThe holier than thou thought police within the so-called ‘Palestinian Solidarity Movement’ have said the following in response to a recent speech I gave at Middlesex University in London;

In line with these principles, we wish to openly state that Ken O’Keefe is not welcome to speak on our campus. We urge Middlesex University Free Palestine Society to distance themselves from his comments, and condemn them as anti-semitic.

We invite our fellow student Palestine activists to add their societies names to this statement.’

My response is as follows.


Given that my wife and children are Semitic, it seems the critical thinking abilities of the above thought police are a bit stunted, to say the least.  So let me help you out a bit by providing the actual meaning of the word Semitic;

Semitic |səˈmitik|


relating to or denoting a family of languages that includes Hebrew, Arabic, and Aramaic and certain ancient languages such as Phoenician and Akkadian, constituting the main subgroup of the Afro-Asiatic family.

of or relating to the peoples who speak these languages, esp. Hebrew and Arabic.

Your lack of linguistic knowledge or more likely participation in the abuse of language with regard to this word is not surprising, especially as it becomes more obvious that the so-called ‘Palestinian Solidarity’ movement is rife with infiltrators and subversives posing as friends and allies of Palestine.  As the saying goes, ‘with friends like these, who needs enemies’.

The truth is that my actions, and my words are those of a person unafraid of the political correctness traps to which you seem to have submitted yourself.  You might well call me an “anti-American hate monger” and imply that I paint all Americans with the same brush when I have repeatedly called the United States the “greatest terrorist of the 20th and now 21st centuries.”  But I have never seen anybody suggest I be banned from speaking for having stated these words.

But alas, speak the words deemed taboo by the thought police and one becomes unworthy of speaking at all.  Think of how incredibly holier than thou and up your own arse it makes you sound when many if not all of you, do not have a Palestinian wife/husband, or Palestinian children, who have likely never been to Palestine, certainly have not risked nearly as much as I have in defending Palestine, you say that I am unworthy of speaking about Palestine or any other issue in universities where I can assure you, many people would be happy for me to speak.  The arrogance and hypocrisy is quite simply over the top.  And if there are Palestinians among this cadre of thought police who genuinely think that I am a liability rather than an asset to the Palestinian cause, then stand up and say so.  I certainly will respect you for having the balls (in a figurative sense) to say so.

To put things in perspective, just over a year ago I was presented the Key to the City of Gaza by the last elected Prime Minister of Palestine, I guess I will have to settle for that instead of your approval.

Also noted is how you have provided a link to my speech, one that purposely edits out the context of what I said.  This is either a massive mistake on your part or a deliberate act that exposes your transparent agenda in attempting to marginalise a genuine ally of the people of Palestine.  Just in case you have made a mistake, here is a link to my entire speech;

As if my words in the above speech were not clear, let me repeat, I seek the destruction of every government and institution that is actively participating in the destruction of our world.  Some being so corrupt and vile that there seems little to no chance in them being reformed, I include the US, British and Israeli governments in this category, along with the United Nations.  All of these entities are vile and disgusting and are taking us straight to hell on Earth via World War III.

Let me be clear however, I do not give a free pass to the crimes of all the other corrupt, racist and violent entities and governments out there.  I simply recognize the obvious, in terms of total destruction and suffering, the entities I reserve my greatest scorn for, specifically the so-called ‘western civilisation’ I come from, represents the gravest threats we face in this tragic world of ours… we are in truth, barbarians.

As much as you seek to censor me or ban me, all you have really done is expose yourselves and a significant problem facing the Palestinians and everyone else genuinely involved in the struggle for justice.  That problem is the false allies of truth and justice, the subversives posing as friends and the dupes too blind to know how much these characters are manipulating them.  The direct enemy is plain to see, a more honest enemy, and in this regard I respect this enemy more than the western “liberal” dupe who is either so full of himself, or so corrupt, that he is blind to the traitor to humanity role he plays.

I am a disciple of Malcolm X’s way of thinking, on more than one level.  With regard to friends and foes he was astute, he was right.  He had no illusions regarding the illusory differences between the Democrats (friends to the black man) and Republicans (racist enemies). “One is the wolf, the other is a fox. No matter what, they’ll both eat you.”

In the 1964 presidential elections, when the US presidential candidates were Lyndon B. Johnson (the “peace” candidate) vs. Barry Goldwater (the “war” candidate), Malcolm X exposed the deceit of this phony distinction.

“The shrewd capitalists, the shrewd imperialists,” he said, “knew that the only way people would run towards the fox (Johnson) would be if you showed them the wolf (Goldwater). So they created a ghastly alternative . . . And at the moment he (Johnson) had troops invading the Congo and
South Vietnam.”

This is my perspective, you, the thought police and false allies of Palestine, which can even include people with Palestinian blood, are the ones attempting to provide cover for the tyrants by prohibiting meaningful deliberation into matters that are of the most critical importance to our world.  A stark example of this is the Jewish supremacism that is of dire consequence to our world.  This is the taboo subject you are charged with enforcing, and in doing so you take sides with the same racist, supremacist ideologies you claim to oppose.  I am proud to be opposed by you, I shall wear your Scarlet Letter as a badge of honour.

I depart by saying that any group of people, whether it is the disciples of Hitler, the Christian Zionists of America or the Jewish supporters of Israel, or the brainwashed false Muslims, I say loud and clear, any group that believes they are “chosen” by God and thus superior to anyone else, is an enemy of all humanity.  Combine this sort of supremacist ideology with the power of America and Israel and we have a recipe for the end of the world.  The stakes could not be any higher, and you, my poor, poor minions, are on the wrong side of history.  You are not the friends of Palestine or justice, you are the guardians of tyranny whether you know it or not.


Ken O’Keefe

Thus far the following thought police entities have saw fit to stand by an anti-Ken O’Keefe agenda;

Glasgow Caledonian University Palestine Society

Leeds University Palestine Society

Dundee University Action Palestine

Edinburgh University Students for Justice in Palestine

Glasgow University Palestine Society

Liverpool University Friends of Palestine

It would seem that Scotland has a segment of the population feeling inclined to ban me from Scottish Universities, I invite the people of Scotland to express whether this is representative of their national perspective.  If you wish to speak on or against my behalf, please go to the following link and say what you have to say, in fact I encourage all of you to do this.  Perhaps the thought police are right, perhaps I should not be allowed to speak at any university in the so-called ‘western civilisation’.

    Great article Ken, stirring stuff and very true. England is riddled with faux activists and double agents at every level it would seem. It has become clear that the PSC is waste of space and complete fake, whose real interests like the Electronic Intifada are just defending Israel and Zionism from harsh critiques.

      Most marxists are gateceepers for the jewish angel on zionism, because the “russian revolution”, was a cup dete by jewish boljeviks, who also were in the frontline of alNakba. And the settler entity was at least up to 1948 a left utopian project – for jews only. Also the left never talk about the connection between Moses Hess and Karl Marx or the fact that the Sovjet union was the most driving force to make Israel a member of UN.

      U may read more about these thing here

      I donot know anything about the undersigners of this attac on Gilad Atzmon in EI, but the content is exactly the same leftish thinking that is used to attac myself in Sweden.

    Exactly Ken, I am so pleased that I do not belong to any group and not because I have been thrown out of any but just because I do no agree with their petty ideas.

    The police did not find there was any case to answer about your speech yet the so called Palestine Campaigners at Middlesex university find you guilty, how very very lame !

  3. Somoe March 14, 2012 at 9:36 am #

    Brilliantly said, Ken. I fully support you in your quest to liberate the people – the Palestinians and the world beyond Palestine. That these opposers dare to try to silence you and then claim that they support the cause of Palestine would be laughable if it weren’t such a serious matter.

    “The shrewd capitalists, the shrewd imperialists knew that the only way people would run towards the fox would be if you showed them the wolf.”

    This brilliantly summarizes how modern politics works.

    Nice to see someone at deliberation taking a class perspective.

    The argument that you can’t be anti-Semitic because Jews aren’t Semites is one of the weakest arrows in the quiver. See the etymology below; if you don’t like it, too bad.

    also antisemitism, 1881, from Ger. Antisemitismus, first used by Wilhelm Marr (1819-1904) Ger. radical, nationalist, and race-agitator, who founded the Antisemiten-Liga in 1879; from anti- + Semite (q.v.). Not etymologically restricted to anti-Jewish theories, actions or policies but almost always used in this sense. Those who object to the inaccuracy of the term might try H. Adler’s Judaeophobia (1882). Anti-Semitic (also antisemitic) and anti-Semite (also antisemite) also are from 1881, like anti-Semitism first in an article in the “Athenaeum” of Sept. 31, in ref. to German literature.

  6. Paul Eisen March 14, 2012 at 6:29 pm #

    I agree with Dr. Mathis.

    For me, anti-Semitism is an opposition to ‘Semitism’ i.e. an opposition to an unrestrained Jewish ideology and, as such, you can count me in.

  7. aemathisphd March 14, 2012 at 6:40 pm #

    And “unrestrained Jewish ideology” is what, exactly? Or perhaps I was under the mistaken impression that ideologies didn’t have ethnic groups?

  8. Paul Eisen March 14, 2012 at 7:08 pm #

    Jews are no ethnic group in the normal sense – they don’t share a language, a race, a land – not even a religion.

    Jewishness is more an ideology. Hitler called them a race of the mind. I’d prefer to call them a race of the spirit.

    Unrestrained Jewish ideology? Just the usual chosen-ness and ‘specialness’ gone mad.

  9. aemathisphd March 14, 2012 at 11:30 pm #

    And you seem to believe that this is more common than not in Jews?

    (BTW, Ashkenazim certainly constitute an ethnic group by any real sense of the term. And, until a hundred years ago, they did share a language, a race, and a land — and a religion.)

    • fool me once... March 15, 2012 at 12:26 am #

      Dr. Mathis,
      I’ve been calling you Professor and Paul’s calling you Dr. Sorry about that. Anyway, did you read my reply to your questions on the other thread. I’ll pop over there now and await your answers. Cheers.

    • Paul Eisen March 15, 2012 at 5:23 am #

      Yes I do.

      Of course, in the overwhelming majority it’s not a problem. The feelings of specialness are moderate and contained. These are the ‘gentle Jews’ of my childhood. The problem emerges when Jews become over-empowered, and when they get a state (whether it be the U.S. or Israel) and F16s – well, you’d better watch out!.

      And those gentle Jews? Their crime is that when push comes to shove, they’ll always support their supremacist fellow Jews over their non-Jewish neighbours.

      Regarding Ashkenazim, yes they probably do constitute an ethnic group but all Jews are not Ashkenazim. Jews do have ethnic and racial aspects but, critically, they are not an ethnic group.

      • aemathisphd March 15, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

        But the vast majority of the world’s Jews are Ashkenazim.

        Tell me, Mr. Eisen, whether this notion of “specialness” is curious to Jews or whether it exists in other populations.

  10. aemathisphd March 15, 2012 at 2:13 am #

    I’ve said what I have to say over there.

  11. snipper March 22, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    Very true Ken , It is nice to see someone who has the courage to speak out on subjects that are classed as taboo by most of the media.The sufferings of the Palestinian people is kept at arms length by the Zionist controlled press and TV and those responsible for keeping the lid on the daily atrocities that go in Palestine should be exposed along with the UK corrupted politicians who themselves lack the courage to defend the human rights of a suppressed people, but who are only too eager to condemn others without any proof or justification whatso ever, just so long as it is in line with the Zionist adgenda.
