Our Mission
WAWA/WeAreWideAwake is my Public Service to America as a muckracker who has journeyed seven times to Israel Palestine since June 2005. WAWA is dedicated to confronting media and governments that shield the whole truth.

We who Are Wide Awake are compelled by the "fierce urgency of Now" [Rev MLK, Jr.] to raise awareness and promote the human dialogue about many of the crucial issues of our day: the state of our Union and in protection of democracy, what life is like under military occupation in Palestine, the Christian EXODUS from the Holy Land, and spirituality-from a Theologically Liberated Christian Anarchist POV.

"We're on a mission from God."
The Blues Brothers

"Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all...and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave...a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils."
George Washington's Farewell Address - 1796

"My aim is to agitate & disturb people. I'm not selling bread, I'm selling yeast."
Unamuno

July 8, 2009: Knock, Knock  UPDATE July 9 @ end


Once upon a time, there was an old widow, who lived in a certain town with a judge who cared nothing about justice, people or God. But an old widowed crone kept coming to him with her plea, "Grant me justice against my adversary."

The judge ignored her until she became such a PIA [pain in the ass] he finally muttered to himself, "Even though I don't fear God or care a hoot about this old crone, she has become such a PIA, I will give into her, just to get her to leave me alone!" [Paraphrased from a story Jesus told in Luke 18 1-5]

Today, I begin knocking on the door [via cell phone] of The Supreme Court of Israel: +972-267-59612

Yesterday, I mailed the following letter:


Dorit Beinish, President Supreme Court of Israel                                
Shaarei Mishpat Street
Jerusalem, PR 91909 Israel
 
 
Dear Supreme Court President Dorit Beinish,
 
On July 6, 2009, you stated in regards to Mordechai Vanunu, that his "case is still generating great interest, like any other security-related case. The media's attention he gets is proof of that."
 
On Vanunu's Wiki page
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mordechai_Vanunu , I counted a quick dozen footnotes to articles that I have written since 2007 from my interviews with Vanunu-and not in one did we discuss '"security-related" issues or nuclear weapons-but we did talk about his faith, human rights abuses by Israel, the Christian Exodus from the Holy Land and the news pertaining to his freedom of speech trial.
 
The enclosed book relates only my first four trips to Israel Palestine. I have been back three more times since it was printed and I encountered a different Vanunu each time.
 
I still have not written things he told me in 2005-and NOTHING he said referred to "security-related" issues or nuclear weapons.

Everything he said proved to me how severely he was tortured during 18 years in Ashkelon.
 
Those stories are only for Vanunu to go public with: I will not.
 
But, knowledge brings responsibility and when I last saw my brother in JC on June 14, 2009, it broke my heart all over again to see his ongoing suffering-and he never complained-I am sharing with you what I saw and what I feel is that the ongoing injustices against him are because he is a Christian, and THAT is the story I will persist to write and speak about, until I can write my last chapter about VMJC: Thank God Almighty he is FREE NOW!
 
 
Yours persistently, most sincerely and in solidarity with Micah 6:8: "What does God require? He has told you: Be just, be merciful, and walk humbly with your Lord."

11 AM EST:

I reached the voice mail of Public Affairs in Jerusalem RE: wanting to dialogue with
Dorit Beinish, President Supreme Court of Israel as I am sure she referred to me as media who has been interested in reporting on Vanunu.

Way past time for Israel to come out of Cold War thinking and see that in order to remain secure in their claim as a democracy, they must uphold universal human rights:


Article 19.

   Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

Article 13:
(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.

(2)
Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.

July 9: Phone contact office of Israeli Supreme Court President Dorit Beinish and and I emailed:





Dear Supreme Court President Dorit Beinish,

On July 6, 2009, in regards to Mordechai Vanunu, you stated that his "case is still generating great interest, like any other security-related case. The media's attention he gets is proof of that."

I am the USA media who has been reporting on Vanunu since June 2005, but never about security related issues.

My interest in Vanunu has always been about the person he was and is and how his faith helps him endure the denial of his inalienable human right to free speech and movement.

The following footnotes from Vanunu's Wiki page:

   10. In June 2009, Letters to Netanyahu and Obama: FREE VANUNU NOW, was established as a Face Book Cause in support of Vanunu's right to leave Israel. [2]

 

On April 21, 2004, Vanunu stated:

 
"I am not harming Israel. I am not interested in Israel. I want to tell you something very important. I suffered here 18 years because I am a Christian, because I was baptised into Christianity. If I was a Jew I wouldn't have all this suffering here in isolation for 18 years. Only because I was a Christian man."

 
On July 6, 2009, I phoned Vanunu and he said:

"You have freedom of speech and freedom of movement. Do what you want. But I am not publishing anything. Everything is already on the Internet."

On my site alone are 2005, 2006, 2008 video interviews with Vanunu and reports from day one of his freedom of speech trial.

As a reporter, I am asking the Court what can Israel gain by detaining Vanunu-other than the bad publicity generated through the internationals who will meet him?

I am pleading with the High Court to be just and merciful and put an end to the Vanunu Saga and reap good PR, by allowing him his right to leave Israel and have the opportunity to fade away into history, instead of continuing to make it.

Yours persistently, most sincerely and in solidarity with Micah 6:8: "What does God require? He has told you: Be just, be merciful, and walk humbly with your Lord."

The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

© 1968, 2001 Kent M. Keith

" In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway."-Mother Teresa


“You cannot talk like sane men around a peace table while the atomic bomb itself is ticking beneath it. Do not treat the atomic bomb as a weapon of offense; do not treat it as an instrument of the police. Treat the bomb for what it is: the visible insanity of a civilization that has ceased...to obey the laws of life.”- Lewis Mumford, 1946



The age of warrior kings and of warrior presidents has passed. The nuclear age calls for a different kind of leadership....a leadership of intellect, judgment, tolerance and rationality, a leadership committed to human values, to world peace, and to the improvement of the human condition. The attributes upon which we must draw are the human attributes of compassion and common sense, of intellect and creative imagination, and of empathy and understanding between cultures."  - William Fulbright



“Any nation that year after year continues to raise the Defense budget while cutting social programs to the neediest is a nation approaching spiritual death.” - Rev. MLK
Establishment of Israel
