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 19, 2010: : Calling Congress on Pollard
November 19, 2010: Calling Congress on Pollard  

Message from M. Adams:

 

Jonathan Jay Pollard was born in 1954 in Texas & grew up in Indiana, in an affluent family; later he attended Stanford & Tufts. He was born an American citizen who betrayed his country for financial gain. 

 

I wish I could list the various types of classified manuals & codes that he sold to Israel and others, which some fools dismiss today, saying but "they're our allies they wouldn't harm us." Some of those very documents were then sold again by several Israelis who worked in the Israeli Defense ministry --  3 other men were discussed who then sold some of those US docs to the USSR. NCIS analysts assumed Israelis were "testing weaknesses" within US security defense systems.  We can only wonder why they would...


The layers of disinformation/lies that have swirled around the Pollard case arose because such extensive damage was done to the United States security due to his actions, followed by layers of misinformation & coverup by the Israeli govt which received the million plus documents over 18 Months.  The magnitude and type of information cannot be listed or explained as it is all still classified. The story has the same quality of mystery & distortion surrounding it as does the horrific still classified and inexplicable Israeli 1967 attack to sink a solo surveillance ship, the USS Liberty..but that is what propagandists and damage control agents do---sow confusion and disinformation. The best recourse is to find a well written presentation to read about this notorious espionage case to learn the truth and avoid 'hasbara'.  

 

I highly recommend Ronald Olive's 'page turner' entitled:  "Capturing Jonathan Pollard: How one of the most notorious spies in American history was brought to justice" published by the US Naval Institute Press, 2006. This author, Ron Olive, is a retired Special Agent of NCIS who served 30 years in law enforcement and 22 at NCIS in foreign counterintelligence. Previous to that he served in US Marine recon,  received a Bronze star -V for valor in Vietnam. 

 

Mr. Olive led the investigation against Pollard & garnered his confession which led to the arrest in 1986. The amount of damage done and the enormous number of documents that Pollard stole and sold to Israel is difficult to visualize; approximatley 360 cubic feet, i.e., 1 Million+ documents over a period of 18 months. Then Sec of Defense Cap Weinberger wrote a 46 page (still) classified letter documenting the extent of damage to the presiding Judge in the case. Pollard did it for money, as he admitted...(he said he just grew dependent on the lavish living he'd grown used to-- some defense) ! 

 

Israel was not the only recipient of his espionage, South Africa, USSR and PRC also were discussed, but as Pollard's wife explained to Mike Wallace of CBS 60 Minutes : "we did what we felt our moral obligation as Jews..i have no regrets about that." She was as delusional & arrogant as her husband at the time and does not speak for anyone but her own wretched self.  She received a brief 5 yr sentence but served only 3 yrs. 

 

After Pollard was caught he contacted Wolf Blitzer who was then writing for the Wash Post. Blizter then published a column minimizing the Intelligence that Pollard had passed along to Israel--which truly enraged Sec of Defense Cap Weinberger, who the submitted another letter to the court,  this time unclassified,  on the eve of sentencing stating : "the defendant took it upon himself to reverse policies and national assets which have taken many years, great effort, and enormous national resources to secure."   Pollard had betrayed the security of the United States for money.

 

This is no time nor is there any room now for clemency, and as I learned from various readings the damage that was done to US security was so extensive, that results of Pollard's actions remain classified due to national risk.  He stole and sold 1 million + of Top Secret / SCI information documents and led to serious damage to US relations with M/E govts as well. The book goes into depth about who, why  what and how.   

 

I urge you to contact your elected representatives, especially if they have signed off on this white wash. 

 

Tell them -no clemency no release for Pollard.  No American should work on behalf of release for this traitor./M

ACTION ALERT
November 19, 2010



CONGRESSIONAL LETTER CALLS FOR POLLARD CLEMENCY


Jonathan Jay Pollard, the former civilian Naval intelligence analyst who pleaded guilty to spying for Israel, was sentenced to life in prison in 1987. According to Ian Williams' article in the July/Aug. 1993 Washington Report (see link below): "although Pollard insists he was motivated by concern for Israeli security, he was paid (and is still being paid) a handsome salary by the Israeli government. His Israeli handlers also provided gifts and trips to Europe for Pollard and his wife, Anne. The severity of Pollard's sentence was based on secret testimony by [then-Defense Secretary] Caspar Weinberger, who is on record as saying that Pollard was lucky--he should have received three life sentences. Pollard provided Israeli intelligence with more than 1,000 classified U.S. documents, some consisting of hundreds of pages, comprising overall some 360 cubic feet of paper.


"According to American investigative reporter Seymour Hersh, Pollard sold information on nuclear targets in the Soviet Union to Israel. U.S. defense sources suggest that what caused the most bitter anger against Pollard in the Pentagon and throughout the American intelligence community was the fact that the information compromised human agents in the Soviet Union and elsewhere. U.S. intelligence sources have concluded that the Israeli government bartered this information to the Soviet Union."


Until 1998 Israel publicly denied that Pollard was an Israeli spy--even though it granted him citizenship in 1995.


The most recent salvo in the relentless campaign to release Pollard is a letter circulated by Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) and signed by more than 30 Democratic members of the (U.S) House of Representatives calling on President Barack Obama to grant clemency to the confessed spy.


Please contact the members of Congress who signed the letter reprinted below to express your opinion on their advocacy for someone who has done incalculable damage to this country. Express your appreciation to members of Congress who did not sign, and urge them to resist pressure from their Israel-first colleagues.


And write President Obama to register your disapproval of this letter, which was written in coordination with the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, National Council of Young Israel, B'nai B''''rith International, the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, the Zionist Organization of America, Agudath Israel, and former presidential candidate Gary Bauer, a Christian Zionist whose non-profit organization "American Values" seems to be more concerned with Israel than the United States.

Dear Mr. President,

We write to urge you to use your constitutional power to extend clemency to Jonathan Pollard, thereby releasing him from prison after the time he has already served. Mr. Pollard committed serious crimes and he has expressed remorse. Such an exercise of the clemency power would not in any way imply doubt about his guilt, nor cast any aspersions on the process by which he was convicted. Those who have such views are of course entitled to continue to have them, but the clemency grant has nothing to do with that.


We believe that there has been a great disparity from the standpoint of justice between the amount of time Mr. Pollard has served and the time that has been served -- or not served at all -- by many others who were found guilty of similar activity on behalf of nations that, like Israel, are not adversarial to us. It is indisputable in our view that the nearly twenty-five years that Mr. Pollard has served stands as a sufficient time from the standpoint of either punishment or deterrence.


In summary, we see clemency for Mr. Pollard as an act of compassion justified by the way others have been treated by our justice system. We urge you to use the clemency power in this case.


Sincerely,

Barney Frank (D-MA)

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.
