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.

Eileen Fleming's Biography

"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


"Imagine All the People Sharing All the World."
John Lennon

"If enough Christians followed the gospel, they could bring any state to its knees." 
Father Philip Francis Berrigan 

"You can stand me up at the gates of hell, but I won't back down."
Tom Petty

"If I can't dance, it's not my revolution."
Emma Goldman

"We have yet to begin to IMAGINE the power and potential of the Internet."
Charlie Rose, 2005

Only in Solidarity do "We have it in our power to begin the world again"
Tom Paine

"Never doubt that a few, thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." 
Margaret Mead

"You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free."

Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights; that, among these, are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; and, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it. -July 4, 1776. The Declaration of Independence

October 8, 2012: Seeking Daylight Between US and Israel
October 8, 2012: Seeking Daylight Between US and Israel

 "If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates."-Jay Leno


On Monday, Mitt Romney addressed 400 cadets and invited guests in Lexington at the Virginia Military Institute, in what was billed as a major foreign policy address and he vowed to "change course in the Middle East" and that the President's responsibility is "to use America’s great power to shape history—not to lead from behind, leaving our destiny at the mercy of events."

 
Mitt added, "Hope is not a strategy" but he knows "the president hopes for a safer, freer, and a more prosperous Middle East allied with the United States. I share this hope."

 

Mitt made broad critiques of Obama’s "passivity,” but he did not call for any new-armed intervention in any Mideast conflict.

 

Much of Romney’s address focused on Iran, but he offered no solutions that differ from Obama’s policy of tightening sanctions and insisting that an Iranian nuclear bomb is intolerable.

 

Romney did not call for a new "red line" on Iran as Israel has said it wants, or say if he would be open to a U.S. attack on Iran to stop them from acquiring "nuclear capability" so Israel doesn’t have to do it now.

 

Romney charged that Obama’s poor relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has help embolden Iran and other adversaries.

 

In reference to Obama’s early administration statement to "put some daylight" between the United States and Israel, Romney "will reaffirm our historic ties to Israel and our abiding commitment to its security. The world must never see any daylight between our two nations."


 

Former Israeli peace negotiator, Daniel Levy, a Senior Fellow and Director for Middle East and North Africa at the European Council on Foreign Relations responded:

"
Israel is denying the very dignity and freedom to Palestinians, often their co-religionists and fellow Arabs, that Romney is claiming to support. No daylight means very few new friends and many more missed opportunities.

"'No daylight with 'our closest ally' Israel is also rather hard to reconcile with this commitment: ‘I will recommit America to the goal of a democratic, prosperous Palestinian state,’ unless Romney believes that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is planning a real November surprise - withdrawal from the West Bank and East Jerusalem to facilitate a Palestinian state.

"Or perhaps Romney's choice of words here was no coincidence. For Romney a Palestinian state must be 'democratic and prosperous.'

"He dropped the word 'viable,' international diplomatic-speak for a state with contiguous territory, external borders, a capital, etc. Perhaps Romney supports a non-viable Palestinian state, otherwise known as a Bantustan, in which case he has a partner in Prime Minister Netanyahu, and no problem with the 'no daylight' clause."


  

Mitt is not advocating that the US should lead, but that he can be led to ignore Israel’s continuing colonization of East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Both Romney and Obama’s Israel Palestine policy is one of conflict management; not about seeking a just peace.

 

 

Regarding foreign aid, Romney said he "will make it clear to the recipients of our aid that in return for our material support, they must meet the responsibilities of every decent modern government."

 

Israel has received the greatest amount of U.S. foreign aid of any other state, but it does NOT respect the rights of all of its citizens-the 1.4 million 'Arab Israelis' and the 4 million Palestinians in the occupied territories.

 

 

Unlike Mitt, Obama and all of Congress this candidate for US HOUSE has actually been to occupied Palestine seven times since 2005, and as I responded to the Orlando based HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS:

 

My top priority if elected is changing USA foreign policy that endangers this homeland.


Since 2005, I have been to both sides of The Wall in Israel Palestine seven times: to learn, report and support nonviolent Palestinians, Israelis and International resisters of the military occupation of Palestine, which is viewed everywhere in the world-except America-as a US-Israeli collaboration.

 

Jonathan Ben Artzi, a nephew of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who spent eighteen months in jail for refusing to serve in the IDF has pleaded:

"Sometimes it takes a good friend to tell you when enough is enough. As they did with South Africa two decades ago, concerned citizens across the US can make a difference by encouraging Washington to get the message to Israel that this cannot continue. If Americans truly are our friends, they should shake us up and take away the keys, because right now we are driving drunk, and without this wake-up call, we will soon find ourselves in the ditch of an undemocratic, doomed state."

My Goal in connection with this issue is to hold America to its obligations as a Member State of the UN UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS which includes holding ALL other Member States to it:

The establishment of Israel’s very statehood was contingent upon their upholding the UN UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS and affirmed on 14 May 1948, in The Declaration of the 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."

"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
