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

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."

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

January 20, 2012: The fragility of freedom: SOPA, Ken Starr and Vanunu Mordechai
January 20, 2012: The fragility of freedom: SOPA, Ken Starr and Vanunu Mordechai

If Congress passes the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) it will allow the government to censor- as in blocking of sites deemed to be trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods.

 

All allegedly infringing websites would be barred from search engines and Internet service providers (ISP) would be required to block access to allegedly infringing websites.

 

YouTube would likely be shut down if the bill becomes law and activist reporters would be silenced due to censorship of the Web, which is also a violation of Americans First Amendment which prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.


 

 
A First Amendment case that has been flying under the radar screen of the mainstream media is the ongoing persecution by the current President of Baylor University, Ken Starr [former prosecutor of Bill Clinton] and censorship- as in dismissal of Dr. Marc Ellis.

 

For over three decades, Jewish Liberation theologian Marc Ellis has influenced academics and social justice activists in solidarity with equal rights and freedom for Palestinians.

 

For over fifteen years, Marc has been a University Professor and Director of the Center for Jewish Studies at Baylor University. Under President Kenneth Starr, Marc has been enduring an internal investigation reminiscent of McCarthyism as Baylor University rewrites the rules to dismiss Marc Ellis from their faculty.

 

“Professor Marc H. Ellis has sought to rescue the Jewish ethical tradition in the face of the demands of the 20th and now 21st Century. In his early career, he became deeply interested in Holocaust Theology and Liberation Theology as a reflection on and expression of the mores of the Judeo-Christian tradition when faced with the socio-political-economic crises and genocidal assaults of oppressive nation-states and the international political and economic order. Over the years Professor Ellis has translated that expression of ethical values into an understanding of the Jewish ethical tradition, now facing its own moral crisis as Jewish identity becomes increasingly uncritically identified with the governmental politics of America and Israel.”

 

 


 

The politics of America and Israel are one reason why, Israel’s Nuclear Whistle Blower, Mordechai Vanunu is still not free and come July 2012, Vanunu begins another historic trial regarding the appeal he registered in July 2011 to revoke his citizenship under a law Israel passed in 2011:




This April 21st marks eight years since Vanunu emerged from nearly 18 years in a solitary tomb sized windowless cell and he immediately began breaking the restriction that Israel had imposed on him not to speak to foreigners by telling the Press, “I am not harming Israel. I am not interested in Israel. I want to tell you something very important. I suffered here 18 years because I am a Christian, because I was baptized into Christianity. If I were a Jew I wouldn’t have all this suffering here in isolation for 18 years. Only because I was a Christian man.”


 

Vanunu also addressed the “cruel, barbaric treatment” he endured under the Mossad/Shabbak who “control the prisons”, Western collusion in Israel’s WMD Program, his kidnapping and called to all the leaders of the world to demand Israel “open the Dimona reactor for inspections.”




Because Vanunu spoke to foreign media in 2004, Israel sent him back to solitary confinement for 78 days in the summer of 2010-the outcome of his freedom of speech trial, which began in January 2006. In late 2010, Vanunu moved from east Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, so he would be “closer to the airport.”

 

On 18 January 2012, Vanunu moved back to east Jerusalem to wait for his next historic trial scheduled to begin in July, but if SOPA had already been passed, comments such as the one left on Vanunu’s YouTube channel by former Marine and ex-pat American, Ken O’Keefe could not be read:

Love and respect to you my brother, I am so sorry that remain a prisoner and I am sorry that I have not done more to support your plight. Please know that you have inspired me deeply and that countless other people feel exactly the same as me. I hope to see you free this year my brother, I hope to be with you and share your company as much as possible. TJP, Ken O’Keefe

"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
