Default Ken O'Keefe caused the death of 10 Turkish activists.

This is worth posting only to reach anyone still supporting Ken O'Keefe, even after he stole over $100,000 from his followers a few years ago in his scam known as, "World Citizen" while he continues laughing in his videos when people ask what he has done with the money.

He exploits the Palestinian cause while acting as-if he is Palestinian himself; all while begging for donations—even in his latest videos after already stealing over $100k.

In 2010, his actions were responsible for the death of 10 Turkish activists.

Free Gaza spox admits activist initiated fatal 2010 violence aboard Mavi Marmara:

"LONDON — A leading pro-Palestinian campaigner involved in the flotilla that attempted to enter Gaza in May 2010 has appeared to corroborate Israel’s version of the events which led to the bloody confrontation on board the Mavi Marmara. Ten Turkish activists died after IDF commandos boarded the ship — the largest in the six-vessel convoy — as it sailed towards the Hamas-ruled coastal enclave in defiance of an Israeli security blockade designed to prevent the terror group importing weapons.

In newly revealed posts from a secret British Facebook group, Greta Berlin, the co-founder and spokesperson of the Free Gaza Movement, states that the Israeli troops did not open fire until after Ken O’Keefe, a former US marine aboard the Mavi Marmara, had seized a gun from one of them. During a heated online debate, in the safety of a Facebook group of pro-Palestinian activists who had all been approved or invited to join, Berlin repeatedly challenged comments from other members praising O’Keefe. “He was responsible for some of the deaths on board the Mavi Marmara. Had he not disarmed an Israeli terrorist soldier, they would not have started to fire. That’s enough. Most of you have no idea what you’re talking about,” she wrote. Berlin’s comments, posted in 2014, were made on the Palestine Live group.

Last week, a report by researcher and blogger David Collier uncovered a raft of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel material on the site, whose members once included the leader of Britain’s Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn. But Collier’s examination of the Facebook group also seems to throw new light on the events which unfolded in international waters off of the Gazan coast nearly eight years ago, which provoked a fierce diplomatic spat between Turkey and Israel and the severing of ties by Ankara. [...]

Collier, though, uncovered further posts from Berlin on the Facebook group which appear to back Israel’s description of how the confrontation unfolded.

“You think it was smart that he took the gun away from these crazies on board the Mavi Marmara? Then ran around the deck saying he had the gun? Then hid it so that the Israelis could say they found a gun on board? Right,” she wrote in one thread.

In another, she charges that O’Keefe, a fellow member of Palestine Live, was “not a hero and his actions put others on the Mavi Marmara at risk.” She also refers to “Ken’s crazy ideas to attack crazed and armed soldiers.” Berlin also appears to question O’Keefe’s motivations, noting that, “He’s a provocateur of the highest order and one wonders just why.” She then wrote: “Since he took the gun away and ran around holding it up, why didn’t the crazy Israeli terrorists shoot him? Why did they ONLY shoot people with cameras in their hands."


Israeli commandos boarded the Mavi Marmara by descending on ropes from helicopters. The IDF later said that its forces were attacked with clubs, knives and metal rods as they began to land from the first helicopter, with three soldiers taken captive. It stated that soldiers opened fire after a protester [Ken O'Keefe] grabbed a weapon from one of the commandos. “Unfortunately this group were dead-set on confrontation,” the then Israeli government spokesman, Mark Regev told the BBC shortly after the clash.
Stolen money: $113,470 USD total funds raised

"When I reach $2000 per month, I’ll produce one news analysis podcast and a minimum of 2 videos per month." — Ken O'Keefe (Irish, not "Palestinian;" real name, Kenneth Roy Nichols)

If anyone wants to defend his actions, you are welcome too. So far he begs and exploits the Palestinian cause while uploading videos claiming he is forever being "censored," all while he continues appearing on mainstream media. The same media he claims is "controlled by the Jews, ironically..." One for the memory hole.
