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

November 17, 2010: Open Letter to Israel from International League For Human Rights RE FREE Vanunu
November 17, 2010: Open Letter to Israel from International League For Human Rights RE: FREE Vanunu Now

[Berlin] Please grant Mordechai Vanunu free departure out of Israel
Allow him to receive the Carl‐von‐Ossietzky‐Medal 2010 personally
At the Award Ceremony on December 12th this year in Berlin

OPEN LETTER

To the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
To the Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak and
To the Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai

Honourable Prime Minister Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu,
Honourable Defence Minister Mr. Ehud Barak,
Honourable Defence Minister Mr. Eli Yishai,

We, the Signatories, use the bestowal of the Carl‐von‐Ossietzky‐Medal to Mordechai Vanunu as an
opportunity to appeal to you: please grant this outstanding personality of your country, who urgently advised against the dangers of nuclear armament, free departure out of Israel to enable him the
participation in the ceremonial act for the bestowal of the Carl‐von‐Ossietzky‐Medal on December 12th, 2010 in Berlin.

The international public learned about Mordechai Vanunu in 1985, right after he passed on information about the Israeli Negev nuclear research centre to a London newspaper. On March 27th, 1988, a first instance Israeli Criminal Court sentenced him to an 18‐year‐long imprisonment due to “support of the enemy in wartime” as well as “collection and delegation of secret information with intent to injure the security of Israel”.

The lodged appeal against the decision was rejected by the Supreme Court. This 
happened against the testimonial of contemporary witnesses – among others British and US American nuclear weapons experts – that the knowledge of the convict would not have been sufficient to pose a security threat to Israel.

On April 24th, 2004, Mordechai Vanunu was released from custody after having served the full sentence – thereof 11 years of aggravated imprisonment by complete isolation. The imposed judicial constraints that were repeatedly prolonged include the strict prohibition to leave Israel and considerably narrow his free movement and freedom of expression.

Recently, the stated constraints were approved by the 
Supreme Court of Israel on October 11th, 2010. The judges rejected the defensors’ objection that Mordechai Vanunu’s knowledge concerning nuclear research became obsolete due to his dismissal in 1985 and the subsequent long imprisonment and therefore could not pose a threat to the security of Israel. To justify the maintenance of the ban of leaving the country, the verdict of October 13th, 2010 states that he continuously holds secret and security related knowledge which he could and indeed would reveal abroad.

We permit ourselves to recall that the former Prime Minister of your country, Ehud Olmert, already
conceded in 2006 during his Germany visit that Israel does possess nuclear weapons. Mordechai Vanunu emphasizes down to the present day that he did not want to harm Israel. Instead, he
acted out of deep concern regarding the dangers of artificially and for the construction of nuclear
weapons rehashed plutonium – including threats to the Israeli population. This anxiety is shared by
millions of people since the atomic bomb releases on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Against this background, as well as in the light of increasing tensions in the region, leading statesmen have repeatedly spoken out in favour for a complete nuclear disarmament and have proposed as a first step in this direction the creation of regional nuclear‐weapon‐free zones.

The reasons for which the Signatories on occasion of the bestowal of the Carl‐von‐Ossietzky‐Medal to
Mordechai Vanunu appeal to you with this letter extend beyond policy of peace requests. We cannot think of any other case in a democratic State where after the complete serving of a sentence – with 18 years being a particularly high assessed imprisonment ‐ judicial requirements have been imposed that result in such a far‐reaching curtailment of fundamental rights that – in fact – these constraints equal a progressive prolongation of sentence.

We deem it indispensable that in a democratic 
constitutional state a complete served imprisonment must lead on to the reinstatement of all civil and political rights of the convict. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights codifies in Art. 12 the fundamental right to be free in leaving and entering any country, including the own. Art. 14 paragraph 7 states furthermore: “No one shall be liable to be tried or punished again for an offence which he has already been finally convicted or acquitted in accordance with the law and penal procedure of each country”.

We, the Signatories, appeal urgently to you to generously consider our request and to meet our desire to permit Mordechai Vanunu the right to leave Israel. Please grant Mordechai Vanunu the opportunity to accept the invitation of the International League for Human Rights to be her guest from 10th until 17th December 2010 in Berlin, in order to personally attend the ceremonial act for the bestowal of the Carlvon‐Ossietzky‐Medal in 2010.

Thank you for your kind attention. We would be very thankful for an early reply.

Sincerely,

  • Lawyer Otto Jäckel Chairperson International Association of Lawyers Against Nuclear Arms - Germany

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
"On the day of the termination of the British mandate and on the strength of the United Nations General Assembly declare The State of Israel will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel: it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion it will guarantee freedom of religion [and] conscience and will be faithful to the Charter of the United Nations." - May 14, 1948. The Declaration of the Establishment of Israel
