USS Liberty: Survivors of the 1967 Israeli attack

program date: 
Sun, 06/07/2009

James Marquis Ennes, Jr., a survivor of the 1967 attack by Israel on the American intelligence ship USS Liberty and one of the creators of The USS Liberty Memorial Web Site, is an American citizen and a retired career US Naval Officer. He was born in New Jersey in 1933 and was raised in New York, Texas, Illinois, Washington State and California.

Alison Weir  "Because so few people know about Israel's extremely ruthless attack on the US Navy ship, the  USS Liberty, I'd like to alert you to that  as well.  This is a profoundly important topic. The crew members, who are still waiting for justice, have waged a heroic (but to date unsuccessful) campaign to bring this attack before the American people."

Since this statement was written, Merle Austin Africa joined the ancestors. She died in prison, March 13, 1998.

Revolution is not a word but an application, it is not war but peace, it does not weaken it strengthens, revolution does not cause separation it generates togetherness, ... revolution is an activity, a generating force that continues generating, continues activating, continues togetherness, solidarity will never be realized so long as geography is imperative, solidarity is unity, without unity you can 't have revolution, ... revolution is organization just as solidarity is togetherness,... the word people should be a symbol of identity which should unite people and dispel war but to call everybody a person and go to war against people is to say that people are compelled to conflict makin peace hopeless and everything people are striving to make, to have, to be, ... if we expect to accomplish the defeat of oppression, we are going to have to understand the power of assertion.

Alvaro Luna Hernandez

program date: 
Thu, 04/23/2009

Sheriff Jack McDaniel of Alpine, Texas, On July 18, 1996 arrived to arrest Alvaro at his home on a trumped up charge of aggravated robbery  When the unarmed Alvaro questioned the sheriff's action, the officer drew his weapon. Before he could shoot, Alvaro disarmed him and fled. (At the trial for robbery, Alvaro represented himself and had the charge dismissed.). No warrant for the arrest had been issued.

Later after the trial decision, without identifying themselves, police began shooting indiscriminately at the house, cars parked in front and at the public streetlights.  At a new trial, witnesses explained, that the police shooting resembled a "war zone."  Alvaro returned fire in self-defense and never shot or injured anyone.  Alvaro dialed 911 (emergency) and notified other officials that police were firing at him and others would not allow them to surrender.

Alvaro was convicted of "threatening" the sheriff, but acquitted on the charge of shooting Sgt. Hines on June 29, 1997.  He received a 50-year sentence. His case is currently on appeal.
