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

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

September 23, 2012: Arab Spring, Iran, America's Autumn and Israel’s WMD
September 23, 2012: Arab Spring, Iran, America's Autumn and Israel’s WMD


 

On the second morning of Autumn, AIPAC praised the efforts of Sens. Graham (R-SC), Lieberman (I-CT), Casey (D-PA), and 80 additional cosponsors, who passed resolution [SJ41] by 90 to 1, to affirm the “vital national interest of the United States to prevent the Government of Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability.”

 

The senators echoed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s nearly yearlong chant that the window for diplomacy is closing; but the senators also urged “increased economic and diplomatic pressure on Iran to come into full and sustained compliance with UN Security Council resolutions.”


 

Also this morning Reuters reported that a senior Iranian lawmaker accused the head of the United Nations' nuclear watchdog of passing confidential information about Iran's nuclear activities to Israel.

 

Mr. Jahangirzadeh, a member of parliament's national security and foreign policy committee, stated IAEA chief Yukiya Amano would be to blame if Iran cut ties with the body.

 

"Amano's repeated trips to Tel Aviv and asking the Israeli officials' views about Iran's nuclear activities indicates that Iran's nuclear information has been disclosed to the Zionist regime (Israel) and other enemies of the Islamic Republic.

 

“If the agency's actions lead to Iran cutting cooperation with this international body, all responsibility will be with the IAEA director general."

 



At a news conference last week in Tehran, the commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, Mohammad Ali Jafari, indicated Tehran would withdraw from the NPT if attacked by Israel.

 

Iran's parliament does not decide matters of foreign policy or national security; they are the province of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

 

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a fatwa, meaning a religious edict, saying that its nuclear development program is not intended to make a nuclear weapon.

 

 

On 17 April 2010, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a statement at a conference in Tehran on nuclear disarmament attended by sixty countries [America was not represented.]

 

He started that nuclear weaponry was "haram" meaning prohibited under Islam and reminded the world that the detonation of nuclear weapons by the US Government in Hiroshima and Nagasaki “created a human disaster of unprecedented proportions in history and exposed human security to a great threat, the global community has reached a unanimous agreement that it is necessary to completely destroy such weapons.

“The use of nuclear weapons resulted not only in large-scale killings and destruction, but also in indiscriminate massacre of people — military members and civilians, young and old, men and women. And its anti-human effects transcended political and geographic borders, even inflicting irreparable harm on future generations.

“Therefore, using or even threatening to use such weapons is a serious violation of the most basic rules of philanthropy and is a clear manifestation of war crimes.


“From a military and security perspective, after certain powers were armed with this anti-human weapon, there remained no doubt that victory in a nuclear war would be impossible and that engagement in such a war would be an unwise and anti-human act.

“However, despite these obvious ethical, intellectual, human, and even military realities, the strong and repeated urge by the global community to dispose of these weapons has been ignored by a small number of governments who have based their illusory security on global insecurity.

“The insistence of these governments on the possession and proliferation of nuclear weapons as well as increasing their destructive power — which are useless except for intimidation and massacre and a false sense of security based on pre-emptive power resulting from guaranteed annihilation of everyone — has led to an enduring nuclear nightmare in the world.

“Innumerable human and economic resources have been used in this irrational competition to give the superpowers the imaginary power to annihilate more than a thousand times their rivals as well as other inhabitants of the world including themselves. And it is due to this reason that this strategy has been known as pre-emption based on guaranteed mutual annihilation or insanity.


“The greatest violators of the NPT are the powers who have reneged on their obligation to dispose of nuclear weapons mentioned in Article 6 of the Non-Proliferation Treaty. These powers have even surpassed other countries with respect to promoting nuclear weapons in the world. By providing the Zionist regime with nuclear weapons and supporting its policies, these powers play a direct role in promoting nuclear weapons which is against the obligations they have undertaken according to Article 1 of the NPT. These countries, headed by the bullying and aggressive US regime, have posed a serious threat to the Middle East region and the world.

 

 

“We believe that besides nuclear weapons, other types of weapons of mass destruction such as chemical and biological weapons also pose a serious threat to humanity. The Iranian nation, which is itself a victim of chemical weapons, feels more than any other nation the danger that is caused by the production and stockpiling of such weapons and is prepared to make use of all its facilities to counter such threats.

“We consider the use of such weapons as haram (religiously forbidden) and believe that it is everyone’s duty to make efforts to secure humanity against this great disaster.” [1]

 



In 1987, Israel’s Nuclear Whistle Blower, Mordechai Vanunu, wrote from Ashkelon Prison:

 

"No government, not even the most democratic, can force us to live under this threat. No state in the world can offer any kind of security against this menace of a nuclear holocaust, or guarantee to prevent it. This is why the citizens must confront their government and warn it that it has no right to expose them to this danger. Because, in effect, the citizens are being held hostage by their own government, just as if they have been hijacked and deprived of their freedom and threatened. When governments develop nuclear weapons they are violating the basic rights of their citizens, the basic right not to live under constant threat of annihilation."

 

 

 

The Non-Proliferation Treaty, to which Iran is a signatory and Israel is not, gives members the right to enrich uranium for fuel reactors and use for medical research and other civilian uses.

 

Every single nuclear reactor around the world is a potential nuclear bomb factory.

 

The NPT doesn’t prohibit any NPT signatory or member of the International Atomic Energy Agency to build the components that would make a nuclear weapon if they were all put together.


 

American intelligence doesn’t agree with Israeli that Iran has achieved the technological breakthrough to make a nuclear weapon or missile launching technology, yet Netanyahu yaps persistently that Iran is only months away of such breakthroughs.


 

Last week, Egypt’s first democratically elected and former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mr. Morsi spoke with The New York Times and cautioned if Washington expects Egypt to honor its treaty with Israel, Washington must also live up to its own Camp David commitment for Palestinian self-rule.

 

Mr. Morsi, explained that “Successive American administrations essentially purchased with American taxpayer money the dislike, if not the hatred, of the peoples of the region,” by backing dictatorial governments over popular opposition and supporting Israel over the Palestinians.

 

When asked if he considered the United States an ally, Mr. Morsi retorted, “That depends on your definition of ally” but added he envisioned the two nations as “real friends.”

 

He praised Mr. Obama for moving “decisively and quickly” to support the Arab Spring revolutions. He believes that Americans supported “the right of the people of the region to enjoy the same freedoms that Americans have” and also argued that Americans “have a special responsibility” for the Palestinians because the United States had signed the 1978 Camp David accord.

That agreement called for the withdrawal of Israeli troops from the West Bank and Gaza to make way for full Palestinian self-rule and he stated, “As long as peace and justice are not fulfilled for the Palestinians, then the treaty remains unfulfilled.”

 


The founding brothers of America were not conservatives or republicans but rebels, dissidents, visionaries and revolutionaries who essentially told the King of England to back off this homeland for we the people will NOT be an occupied people, but masters of our sovereignty-as should all people be!



The two greatest dangers to liberty meaning freedom is that the states would give up [or have it taken away] their powers to the Federal government; and the people would loose their liberties to either because of failing to seize rights as obligations and hold these truths to be self-evident:

"That all [people] are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights...that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among [people] 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."
 -The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 177

 "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
