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

The day before his latest historic trial, Mordechai Vanunu issued the following Global invitation:

"The court hearing June 6, Wednesday 11:30, Israel Supreme Court. It is open for all. See you there."


???20120430_111909


YNET reported today:

The High Court of Justice has denied nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu's petition to renounce his citizenship due to the fact it wasn't submitted to the appropriate channels.
 
"I sat in jail, I was freed and after 26 years they still won't let me go," he said following the hearing. "I want them to revoke my citizenship so that I can begin my life."(Aviad Glickman and Aviel Magnezi)###


Vanunu responded:

The High Court of 'Justice' denied My petition to renounce israel citizenship due to the fact it wasn't submitted to the appropriate channels. it take over a year before The 'Justice' system informed Me and my lawyers of the "appropriate channels"?. So now my lawyer will follow these instructions and will submit new petition. VMJC

 Vanunu's appeal was also the first case to be brought under Israel’s Citizenship Revocation Law:



As the injustices continue against Vanunu, the light on Israel’s Nuclear Apartheid- which could not exist except for US collusion has been relit by this candidate of conscience for US HOUSE here:

 

On 17 April 2012, Iran hosted a conference in Tehran on Nuclear Disarmament and Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei stated that nuclear weaponry was "haram" meaning prohibited under Islam and he also blew the doors off Israel's and America's nuclear deceptions in his statement:


 "If America's claims of fighting the proliferation of nuclear weapons were not false, would the Zionist regime be able to turn the occupied Palestinian lands into an arsenal where a huge number of nuclear weapons are stored while refusing to respect international regulations in this regard, especially the NPT?

 "There is only one government that has committed a nuclear crime so far. Only the government of the United States of America has attacked the oppressed people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with atomic bombs in an unfair and inhumane war, using or even threatening to use such weapons is a serious violation of the most basic rules of philanthropy and is a clear manifestation of war crimes.

 

 "The greatest violators of the NPT are the powers who have reneged on their obligation to dispose of nuclear weapons mentioned in Article 6 of the Non-Proliferation Treaty. These powers have even surpassed other countries with respect to promoting nuclear weapons in the world. By providing the Zionist regime with nuclear weapons and supporting its policies, these powers play a direct role in promoting nuclear weapons which is against the obligations they have undertaken according to Article 1 of the NPT.

 

"We believe that besides nuclear weapons, other types of weapons of mass destruction such as chemical and biological weapons also pose a serious threat to humanity. The Iranian nation, which is itself a victim of chemical weapons, feels more than any other nation the danger that is caused by the production and stockpiling of such weapons and is prepared to make use of all its facilities to counter such threats. We consider the use of such weapons as haram (religiously forbidden) and believe that it is everyone's duty to make efforts to secure humanity against this great disaster."

 

 

 

In 1987, from Ashkelon prison, Mordechai Vanunu wrote:

"The passive acceptance and complacency with regard to the existence of nuclear weapons anywhere on earth is the disease of society today.

"This struggle is not only a legitimate one - it is a moral, inescapable struggle.

"Already now there are enough nuclear missiles to destroy the world many times over [and] this issue should unite us all, because that is our real enemy.

"Is any government qualified and authorized to produce such weapons?"

 


Anyone with a functioning Conscience would respond NO!


On 8 July 1996, the International Court of Justice issued this statement: "The destructive power of nuclear weapons cannot be contained in either space or time. They have the potential to destroy all civilization and the entire ecosystem of the planet."

 

The ICJ also affirmed the "fundamental, cardinal and intransgressible" rule that "States must never make civilians the object of attack and must consequently never use weapons that are incapable of distinguishing between civilians and military targets."

 

States have obligations and People have rights!



In threatening military action against Iran, America and Israel are also in breach of Article 2.4 of the UN Charter, which requires that all UN member states "shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state."

 

Interviews with current and former US and European officials with access to intelligence on Iran "contrast starkly with the heated debate surrounding a possible Israeli strike on Tehran's nuclear facilities…The United States, European allies and even Israel generally agree on three things about Iran's nuclear program: Tehran does not have a bomb, has not decided to build one, and is probably years away from having a deliverable nuclear warhead.

 

 

"Iran is not in breach of the NPT by engaging in uranium enrichment, so long as this activity is under IAEA supervision to ensure that no nuclear material is diverted for military purposes. That is the case at Iran’s uranium enrichment plants at Natanz and Fordow – and the IAEA has verified that no material is being diverted and that each facility is operating as declared by Iran in the relevant design document." [1]

 

 

 

Israel has not signed the NPT and has never allowed IAEA inspectors into their WMD facility and "Vanunu told the world that Israel had developed between one hundred and two hundred atomic bombs [in 1986!] and had gone on to develop neutron bombs and thermonuclear weapons. Enough to destroy the entire Middle East and nobody has done anything about it since."-Peter Hounam, 2003 for the BBC.

 

Because of America’s hypocritical foreign policy, we the people of America who pay taxes are forced to provide over $3 billion a year in military aid to Israel, but not a whisper is heard from this Government in regards to sanctioning Israel-- despite our enormous budget deficit--which has increased every year under President Nuclear Free Obama’s Administration, and he has increased even more US tax dollars to go to Israel than Bush ever did!

 

 

On 2 October 2009, The Washington Times reported that Obama agreed to keep Israel's nukes 'secret' and reaffirmed a 4-decade-old understanding that has allowed Israel to keep a nuclear arsenal without opening it to international inspections!

 

 

At the White House on 15 March 2012, British Prime Minister, David Cameron opined:

 

"We also discussed the continuing threat posed by Iran’s failure to meet its international obligations. On this, we are fully united. We are determined to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.  We believe there is still time and space to pursue a diplomatic solution and we are going to keep coordinating closely with our P5+1 partners.  At the same time, we are going to keep up the pressure with the strongest US sanctions to date and the European Union preparing to impose an embargo on Iranian oil.  Tehran must understand that it cannot escape or evade the choice before it: meet your international obligations or face the consequences." [2]

 

 

Despite economic sanctions and threats of military attack, Iran continues to refuse to meet what the US and its allies term "international obligations."


Iran has been commanded to cease uranium enrichment which is its "inalienable right" under Article IV(1) of the NPT "to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination."

 

 

 

On 17 September 2005, President Ahmadinejad proposed:  

 

"As a further confidence building measure and in order to provide the greatest degree of transparency, the Islamic Republic of Iran is prepared to engage in serious partnership with private and public sectors of other countries in the implementation of uranium enrichment program in Iran. This represents the most far reaching step, outside all requirements of the NPT, being proposed by Iran as a further confidence building measure."

 

 

That offer was ignored, because the objective "was to put a stop to all enrichment in Iran. That has remained the West’s aim ever since, despite countless Iranian reminders that they are unwilling to be treated as a second-class party to the NPT – with fewer rights than other signatories – and despite all the evidence that the Iranian character is more inclined to defiance than buckling under pressure. But that missed opportunity need not prove lethal if the West can pull back now and join the rest of the world in seeing an agreement of this kind as the prudent way forward." [3]

 

 

The Obama Administration has been seeking states around the world to stop trading with Iran and to stop buying Iranian oil, with threats to cut off foreign financial institutions from the US financial system, if they conduct transactions with the Central Bank of Iran or other Iranian financial institutions. 

 

US trade with Iran has been negligible since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

 

 

On 20 March 2012, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was "pleased to announce that an initial group of eleven countries has significantly reduced their volume of crude oil purchases from Iran – Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom. As a result, I will report to the Congress that sanctions pursuant to Section 1245 of the National Defense Authorization Act for 2012 (NDAA) will not apply to the financial institutions based in these countries, for a renewable period of 180 days." [4]

 

 

America and its allies claim they want a Nuclear Free Middle East, but the focus is always on Iran who haven’t any nuclear weapons and its nuclear facilities are open to IAEA inspections despite Israel’s possession of up to "400 nuclear warheads with the ability to deliver them by aircraft, ballistic missile and submarine-launched cruise missiles and wipe any capital in the Middle East (and probably much further afield) off the map – and its nuclear facilities are almost entirely closed to the IAEA." [5]

 


 

The US spin has been that if Iran were to acquire nuclear weapons, it would lead to widespread proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. 

 

Article IX of the NPT affirms:

 

"Each Party shall in exercising its national sovereignty have the right to withdraw from the Treaty if it decides that extraordinary events, related to the subject matter of this Treaty, have jeopardized the supreme interests of its country. It shall give notice of such withdrawal to all other Parties to the Treaty and to the United Nations Security Council three months in advance. Such notice shall include a statement of the extraordinary events it regards as having jeopardized its supreme interests." [6]

 

 

Iran indeed has grounds for withdrawing from the NPT while Israel, who is not a member of the NPT, is not breaching any "international obligations."

The UN Charter contains a set of international obligations, which all UN members are supposed to fulfill.

The most fundamental of all is in Article 2.4, which requires that all UN member states "shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state." [7]

 

 

On 5 April 2009, President Obama stood on the world stage in Prague and admitted:

"As the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon, the United States has a moral responsibility to act. When we fail to pursue peace, then it stays forever beyond our grasp. We know the path when we choose fear over hope. To denounce or shrug off a call for cooperation is an easy but also cowardly thing to do. That's how wars begin. That's where human progress ends.


"The voices of peace and progress must be raised together…Human destiny will be what we make of it…Words must mean something."

"HOPE has two children.The first is ANGER at the way things are. The second is COURAGE to DO SOMETHING about it."-St. Augustine

 "He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust." - Aquinas

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
