FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Ex-US Marine/Gulf War Veteran & Founder of the Human Shield Action to Iraq Ken O’Keefe announces ‘P10K FORCE’ plan to Mobilize 10,000 International Observers from Western Nations to the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) - Launching September 11, 2004.

Noam Chomsky:

"This (P10K) is a very imaginative, creative, and courageous initiative. If it receives the support it merits it could have a major impact on moves towards reconciliation, peace, and hopes for justice and freedom in this tortured corner of the world."


When: Wednesday June 9th, 1300 1300-1330, Questions 1330-End

Where: American Colony Hotel - East Jerusalem

Who: Ken O’Keefe, Ian Hodgson (P10K Coordinator), Rihab Aisawi (who has lost three loved ones to the occupation).

Contact: Ian Hodgson (0)555 13990 email:

Content of Press Conference - The conference will include details of the plan including strategy, logistics, endorsements, previous ceasefires (2001 & 2003) and other relevant facts.


In response to unheeded and repeated calls for “International Observers” from the G8, the UN, President Arafat, the Arab League, NGO's and many more, the P10K Force is now forming for deployment to the OPT, and intends to remain there until the application of international law, which demands full Israeli withdrawal.


(Ceasefire) - Mr. O’Keefe will discuss P10K brokered attempts to secure an ‘AGREEMENT IN PRINCIPLE’ with Israel and the militant Palestinian Resistance intending to affect a cessation of all offensive operations contingent on the arrival of the P10K FORCE in September.

Hanan Ashwari:

"Amid an unprecedented level of Israeli military aggression against the Palestinians, and at a time when Israel's radical right wing government is bent on sustaining and expanding its illegal occupation of the Palestinian territories, this 10,000 strong civil force of dedicated advocates of justice and peace will help answer the desperate calls for protection to the Palestinian people."

"The congregation of this force in Palestine will certainly reflect the global commitment to upholding the legal and moral rights of the Palestinian people, and putting a just and durable end to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict."

Mrs Aisawi

A statement will be made by Mrs. Aisawi regarding her personal loss of loved ones and her support for the P10K Mission of affecting a ceasefire upon arrival and ending Israeli state terrorism and the illegal occupation of the OPT; the root causes of Palestinian terrorism.


Mr. O'Keefe will discuss America's invasion of Iraq based on false allegations of Iraq possessing WMD and subsequent killing of at least 10,000 civilians; meanwhile annually providing at least billion in aid to Israel, which has a known and illegal arsenal of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. He will read a statement from the recently released Mordechai Vanunu testifying to this fact and call on citizens of the world to join the P10K FORCE based on the clear and present threat the Israeli/Palestinian conflict represents to security for our world.

Mordechai Vanunu: (extract from statement)

“In Israel we demand the abolition of all nuclear weapons because they are the power behind Israel, behind the occupation, the settlements, and widening its borders into Palestinian land.”
