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

December 27, 2011: The Media, Ron Paul and a Third Rail named Vanunu Mordechai
December 27, 2011: The Media, Ron Paul and a Third Rail named Vanunu Mordechai


One week before the Iowa caucus as Ron Paul’s poll numbers are surging, the Media’s scrutiny is focused on the contents of an “investment newsletter” that Paul produced and profited from back in the ’80s and ’90s.  Entitled the “Ron Paul Investment Newsletter” or the “Ron Paul Survival Newsletter” it also contained a series of racially biased attacks.

 

Paul maintains he didn’t write the pieces but The Washington Post is running a series of four columns this week examining “how factual Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) has been in describing his career in politics” entitled Fact Checker: Ron Paul and the racist newsletters.


I posted a few comments, beginning with this one:


 

 

Google “The Serial Hypocrisy of The Media vis-a-vis Ron Paul and Mordechai Vanunu” which is the first in THAT ongoing series!

 

PS: The photo is of me and ‘retired’ as in fired White House Correspondent Helen Thomas. Google “An Evening with Helen Thomas and Flashback to John Lennon and Vanunu Mordechai” for the first in THAT ongoing series.

 


Time will tell if WaPo will follow that lead and another comment that led to "Back to Ron Paul, The Media and Mordechai Vanunu" Read more…

 



On Christmas Eve I posted the following comment to Mordechai Vanunu’s Youtube channel:

eileen4HOUSE2012 It is lame to wish you a Merry Christmas when I wish you a FINAL Christmas in a place that is not home to you and decades more in full freedom, health and happiness.


“The ‘Serial Hypocrisy’ of The Media vis-a-vis Ron Paul and Mordechai Vanunu” has spread to multiple pages on a Google Search and i think mostly because many Americans are favoring Ron Paul for president. So my next step is try to reach him and remind him that in 1996, 36 congressional reps stood up for Vanunu’s freedom because “we have a duty to stand up for men and women like Vanunu who dare to articulate a brighter vision for humanity.”

 



My letter to Ron Paul:

 

Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Committee

845 Plantation Drive

Clute, TX 77531

 

December 27, 2011

 

Dear Representative Ron Paul,

 

I am seeking your response to the following to be published in a series regarding The Serial Hypocrisy of The Media vis-a-vis Ron Paul and Mordechai Vanunu.

 

In April 1999, thirty-six members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to President Clinton regarding the incarceration of Israel’s nuclear whistle blower because they believed "we have a duty to stand up for men and women like Mordechai Vanunu who dare to articulate a brighter vision for humanity."

 

President Clinton responded with a public statement expressing concern for Vanunu and the need for Israel and other non-parties to the Non-Proliferation Treaty to adhere to it and accept IAEA safeguards.

 

Were you one of the 36 congressional representatives who signed that letter?

 

Will you also comment regarding what Vanunu told me in 2005:

“Did you know that President Kennedy tried to stop Israel from building atomic weapons? In 1963, he forced Prime Minister Ben Guirion to admit the Dimona was not a textile plant, as the sign outside proclaimed, but a nuclear plant. The Prime Minister said, ‘The nuclear reactor is only for peace.’
 
“Kennedy insisted on an open internal inspection. He wrote letters demanding that Ben Guirion open up the Dimona for inspection.
 
“When Johnson became president, he made an agreement with Israel that two senators would come every year to inspect. Before the senators would visit, the Israelis would build a wall to block the underground elevators and stairways. From 1963 to ’69, the senators came, but they never knew about the wall that hid the rest of the Dimona from them.
 
“Nixon stopped the inspections and agreed to ignore the situation. As a result, Israel increased production. In 1986, there were over two hundred bombs. Today, they may have enough plutonium for ten bombs a year.”

 

If you were President what would you do?

 

Thank you for your consideration and most sincerely all the best,

Vanunu addressed The Media just prior to being sent back to solitary confinement for 78 days in the summer of 2010- the outcome of his freedom of speech trial and essentially punishment for speaking to foreign media in 2004 after he emerged from 18 years in a windowless tomb sized cell for telling the world the truth about Israel’s 7-story underground weapons of mass destruction facility at the Dimona plant in the Negev Valley:

"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
