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


"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

October 24, 2007: Censoring Gravitas, Blowing Out Doors and Tearing Down Walls
October 24, 2007: Censoring Gravitas, Blowing Out Doors and Tearing Down Walls

This reporter has now become a proud member of the banned voices who have dared speak out for equal human rights for Palestinians and the truth about the injustices committed by the state of Israel on the supposedly progressive free speech sites known as the Daily Kos and the Democratic Underground.

This week I was banned from the Democratic Underground, which smells just like the censoring I received  from the Daily Kos and reported about on June 7: "It Sure Smells Like a Right Wing Zionist Cabal at The Daily Kos "

Although locked out of my own blog on the DK, the attacks and conversation about me continued:

"Her advertising and crossposting on a hate site were simply irrelevant and could not possibly have factored into her departure in any way. If you think otherwise, you're a victim of Zionist mind control, just like the DKos editors. And it wasn't even really a decision the DKos editors agreed with; they were simply cowed into banning Eileen by a well-organized campaign of email harrassment that was most likely promulgated through GIYUS [ED Note: GIYUS/ Give Israel Your United Support, is a project of the World Union of Jewish Students] and I'll bet there were thousands of emails from Tel-Aviv pretending to be from Poughkeepsie…No other possible explanation could possibly be possible, especially the plain and simply one given. She is clearly another victim of the Infantophagy Lobby…Remember when someone was hopping up and down about how this controversy is really all a put-on by Thuh Zionist Thought Police, and that we secretly didn't give a damn about the hate site, just about trying to silence Eileen's daring an controversial… by zemblan on Mon Jun 04, 2007 at 11:26:13 AM PDT [IBID]


What piqued my interest immediately is that I have a link attached to my website that informs me, where my readers are coming from.

The 24 hours from June 3rd at 4 AM until June 4th, proved that visits from Israel increased so greatly, that Israel went from 17th place into 5th place out of the total countries who had visited my site during that time period.
 
This week I posted two previously published articles on the Democratic Underground's Israel Palestine forum and both were locked down within the first 24 hours with this inane message from Lithos, DU Moderator, "Personal blogs without distinct gravitas concerning I/P are not considered acceptable sources."

I responded with an email ALERT to Lithos, but never received a reply.

When I attempted to post a new article on October 23, 2007, I received the message:

Your posting privileges have been revoked… We read all correspondence sent to us. If you do not get a response to your appeal, it is because your request was denied.

What follows is my first email to Lithos on October 22:

"GRAVITAS" you say,

My article "FREE RADICALS" most certainly has dignity and propriety and is in good taste: for it contains THE TRUTH.

 What's really YOUR problem? -e

 

No response ever came and as I already know the truth, so should you dear American reader:

"Israel 's Government has thrown its weight behind efforts by supporters to counter what it believes to be negative bias and a tide of pro-Arab propaganda. The Foreign Ministry has ordered trainee diplomats to track websites and chatrooms so that networks of US and European groups with hundreds of thousands of Jewish activists can place supportive messages.

"In the past week [July 28, 2006] nearly 5,000 members of the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS) have downloaded special "megaphone" software that alerts them to anti-Israeli chatrooms or internet polls to enable them to post contrary viewpoints. A student team in Jerusalem combs the web in a host of different languages to flag the sites so that those who have signed up can influence an opinion survey or the course of a debate." http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/middle_east/article693911.ece


The attack on free speech, deep thought, eye witness accounts from occupied Palestinian territory and "intellectual freedom in the US that has grown more aggressive in recent months…Over the past few years, Israel's US defenders have stepped up their campaign by establishing a network of institutions (such as Campus Watch, Stand With Us, the David Project, the Israel on Campus Coalition, and the disingenuously named Scholars for Peace in the Middle East) dedicated to the task of monitoring our campuses and bringing pressure to bear on those critical of Israeli policies. By orchestrating letter-writing and petitioning campaigns, falsely raising fears of anti-Semitism, mobilizing often grossly distorted media coverage and recruiting local and national politicians to their cause, they have severely disrupted academic processes, the free function of which once made American universities the envy of the world.

"When professors Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer drafted an essay critical of the effect of Israel's lobbying organizations on US foreign policy, they had to publish it in the London Review of Books because their original American publisher declined to take it on. With the original article expanded into a book that has now been released, their invitation to speak at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs was retracted because of outside pressure…When President Carter published Palestine: Peace not Apartheid last year, he was attacked for having dared to use the word "apartheid" to describe Israel's manifestly discriminatory policies in the West Bank."
http://www.electronicintifada.net/v2/article9051.shtml

 

A few weeks ago, the University of St. Thomas' president Father Dennis Dease, after pressure from a few local Jewish leaders, canceled a scheduled presentation by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. After over 2,700 emails were sent to the University by concerned citizens defending freedom of speech, Father Dease issued the following statement on October 10, 2007:

"One of the strengths of a university is the opportunity that it provides to speak freely and to be open to other points of view on a wide variety of issues. And, I might add, to change our minds. Therefore, I feel both humbled and proud to extend an invitation to Archbishop Desmond Tutu to speak at the University of St. Thomas. I have wrestled with what is the right thing to do in this situation, and I have concluded that I made the wrong decision earlier this year not to invite the archbishop. Although well-intentioned, I did not have all of the facts and points of view, but now I do."


You should have the facts too:

Archbishop Desmond Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his courageous and fearless opposition against the South African apartheid system.

On October 26 – 27, 2007 at the Old South Church in Boston, Mass., Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Rev. Naim Ateek, Anat Biletzki, Diana Buttu, Noam Chomsky, John Dugard, Farid Esack, Noura Erekat, Jeff Halper, Donald Wagner, David Wildman, Phyllis Bennis, Joan M. Martin, Nancy Murray, Bishop Thomas Shaw and concerned truth seeking Americans will be blowing off the doors in Boston by addressing "The Apartheid Paradigm in Palestine-Israel: Issues of Justice and Equality."

At 3 PM , on October 27, 2007, the Boston Chapter of Jewish Voices for Peace, The American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and justice and peace activists from Israel , Palestine, South Africa, and the U.S. will be Tearing Down the Walls-Building Bridges at a Peace Rally in Copley Square.

"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
