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."

November 10, 2010: Correction Required RE: "Dimona, the Middle East's Ticking Bomb" UPDATED

Background links follow for further illumination to the article regarding the
error "scientist" as written, "The Moroccan-born Jewish scientist" in article "Dimona, the Middle East's ticking time bomb"  By Hassan Hanizadeh

Mordechai Vanunu was never a scientist, but a low-to mid level tech who suffered a crisis of conscience that led him to shoot 2 rolls of film in top secret locations in the Dimona Facility.

What he also exposed was a failure of SECURITY and ever since SECURITY has had a 24 year vendetta against Vanunu.

On 11 October 2010, Israel denied Vanunu's appeal to rescind the restrictions that have held him captive for the last 6 1/2 years that have denied him the right to leave the state which is all he wants to do.

Also in October,  an international campaign was begun by the International League of Human Rights to assure Vanunu be at the Award Ceremony in Berlin on 12.12.10 to receive the
2010's Carl von Ossietzky Medal:

 I  began a series of interviews with Vanunu in 2005 and one reason for BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu's FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010 was to set the record straight on what has been misreported.



Dimona, the Middle East's ticking time bomb

Nov. 9, 2010
By Hassan Hanizadeh

 

David Ben-Gurion, the founder and first prime minister of the Israeli regime in 1954, presented to his Cabinet a plan called the Strategic Defense Plan which was then approved by all members of the Cabinet.

 

Under the plan, the Zionist regime of Israel would, through land and air aggression, seize parts of the territories belonging to Arab countries neighboring occupied Palestine to expand its geographical sphere.

Israeli first-generation leaders believe the scheme can ward off the consequences of a possible Arab strike against Israel, and push the flashpoint of an all-out war away from occupied Palestine to Arab countries.

Ben-Gurion's plan also envisages the construction of several nuclear power plants for mass production of atomic arms as well as weapons of mass destruction (WMDs).

Ben-Gurion was of the conviction that the production of WMDs could tip the balance of power in favor of the Israeli regime because the population of Arab nations was ten times that of Israel.

Other first-generation Israeli leaders, including Moshe Dayan, Shimon Peres, Isaac Shamir, Isaac Robin, Ariel Sharon, Golda Meir and Yigal Allon, vowed not to forswear Ben-Gurion's defense strategy under any circumstances.

Under the plan, Israel and France held talks on the construction of a secret nuclear facility in Negev Desert in southern occupied Palestine. Finally, France began work to erect the Dimona power station in 1958.

The power plant became operational in 1962 secretly and under tight security measures.

Hundreds of Israeli nuclear experts and scientists who had passed numerous training courses in France and the United States began producing nuclear weapons.

In an interview with the British daily The Sunday Times in 1986, Israel nuclear scientist Mordechai Vanunu divulged shocking secrets about Tel Aviv's nuclear activities.

The Moroccan-born Jewish scientist was kidnapped later in Italy by Mossad's special agents and sentenced to 18 years behind bars.

Vanunu revealed in his interview that Dimona's walls had been cracked due to wear and tear, and would cave in at the slightest earthquake.

Later investigation showed nitrate dust, a byproduct of plutonium production, would leak out of the plant's worn-out walls and pollute the environment up to a radius of 50 kilometers.

A rise in the number of cancer patients in Gaza, Negev and other localities has sounded the alarm for the international community, especially the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), to do something about Dimona's environmental hazards.

Moreover, unofficial reports suggest Israel abducts migrant Palestinian children in Negev Desert and conducts nuclear tests on them.

Despite pressures by the international community, particularly by Muslim and Arab countries as well as the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), to make Israel become a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the Israeli regime continues to defy international will.

Tel Aviv has, over the past four decades, built another nine power plants in Negev Desert which collectively produce 30 tons of nuclear waste annually.

Eighty-four percent of the nuclear waste is dumped in an area south of occupied Palestine, and the remaining 52 percent is disposed of in the Mediterranean Sea.

Such huge amounts of nuclear fallout can result in an unpreventable environmental disaster in the Middle East. Western environmental experts have repeatedly warned against such disasters.

The US, European Union and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have not yet adopted any binding measures to make Israel open up the Dimona nuclear facility to inspections.

That said, and as predicted by Arab nuclear experts, the Dimona power station is a time bomb ticking in the Middle East, jeopardizing the future of regional states.

Should an explosion occur at Dimona, at least five million people are predicted to be exposed to radioactive radiation due to the high population density in occupied Palestine.

Therefore, the international community should renounce its double standards on the nuclear activities going on it the world and hold Israel accountable for its atomic work.

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
