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

February 24, 2012: Will Colbert Grow a Pair for The Secret Policeman's Ball vis-a-vis Israel's WMD?


Amnesty International is celebrating fifty years in support of free speech at a comedy show on March 4th in my homeland-New York City with the import of The Secret Policeman's Ball; a British-based music and comedy festival with roots in four Amnesty benefit shows produced beginning in 1976.

 
Among the acts that have signed on for the happening at Radio City Music Hall for the concert to benefit Amnesty International are Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

 

Recently on The Colbert Report, Stephen balled out when it came to nailing where Nuclear Weapons are in the Middle East, as was aced here by Israel's Nuclear Whistle Blower Vanunu Mordechai:



That Colbert Report can he seen here: http://www.colbertnation.com/full-episodes/tue-february-21-2012-robert-kagan?xrs=share_copy

During his interview with Robert Kagan, Colbert told the neo-con “to grow a pair” regarding going after Iran's nuclear program
yet when he asked, “Where are there nuclear weapons in the Middle East?”

 

And Kagan replied "Israel" Stephen hushed him up in Hebrew and that got my Irish up as I know a copy of BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu's FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010 made it through the door of The Colbert Report last summer and that story can be read here:

Two degrees of Kevin Bacon and Message through The Door of The Colbert Report



On 18 June 2010, Malcolm Smart, Director of Amnesty International's Middle East Programme issued this statement:

 

"Mordechai Vanunu should not be in prison at all, let alone be held in solitary confinement in a unit intended for violent criminals. He suffered immensely when he was held in solitary confinement for 11 years after his imprisonment in 1986 and to return him to such conditions now is nothing less than cruel, inhuman or degrading. Mordechai Vanunu is a prisoner of conscience. The prison authorities might claim that he has been put in isolation to protect him from the risk of attack by other inmates, but if the Israeli government is really concerned for his safety it should release him without delay. His re-imprisonment is both harsh and unjustified. The restrictions on Mordechai Vanunu arbitrarily limit his rights to freedom of movement, expression and association and are therefore in breach of international law. They should be lifted and he should be allowed to start his life again as a free man."


Vanunu addresses Israel's intentions by torturing via solitary confinement in this excerpt from "30 Minutes with Vanunu" taped just weeks after his freedom of speech trial began in 2006, here:


Juan E. Méndez was appointed by the UN Human Rights Council as the Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment on 1 November 2010. He is currently a Professor of Law at the American University – Washington College of Law and Co-Chair of the Human Rights Institute of the International Bar Association.

 

On 18 October 2011, the expert on torture called on all countries to ban solitary confinement of prisoners except in very exceptional circumstances and limited time, with an absolute prohibition in the case of juveniles and people with mental disabilities.

 

Méndez told the UN General Assembly’s third committee, which deals with social, humanitarian and cultural affairs that punishment by solitary confinement amounts to torture:

“Segregation, isolation, separation, cellular, lockdown, Supermax, the hole, Secure Housing Unit… whatever the name, solitary confinement should be banned by States as a punishment or extortion technique.

“Social isolation is one of the harmful elements of solitary confinement and its main objective. It reduces meaningful social contact to an absolute minimum. A significant number of individuals will experience serious health problems regardless of the specific conditions of time, place, and pre-existing personal factors”.

 

“Indefinite and prolonged solitary confinement, in excess of fifteen days, should also be subject to an absolute prohibition,” the expert said noting that scientific studies have established that some lasting mental damage is caused after a few days of social isolation.

“Considering the severe mental pain or suffering solitary confinement may cause it can amount to torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment when used as a punishment, during pretrial detention, indefinitely or for a prolonged period, for persons with mental disabilities or juveniles.

 

“Solitary confinement should be used only in very exceptional circumstances, for as short a time as possible. In the exceptional circumstances in which its use is legitimate, procedural safeguards must be followed. I urge States to apply a set of guiding principles when using solitary confinement.

 

“States should also follow internal and external safeguards in order to provide the greatest possible protection of the rights of detained individuals when solitary confinement is used.” [1] 

 

 

 

 

Vanunu delivers his freedom of speech manifesto just prior to being tortured by way of solitary confinement for 78 days in 2010, essentially because he spoke to foreign media in 2004!

 

 

Vanunu explained The Media fails to report on the denial of his human rights because “None of them wants problems with the Israelis." Read more...

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
