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."
Emma Goldman

WAWA Blog: September 28, 2008: Sir Paul in Tel Aviv: Plastic Soul Man, Plastic Soul





Dear Sir Paul,

I had just viewed Revolution
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87yq372R4Ts&feature=related


It sounded just fine.


But when I clicked on to view you in Tel Aviv:
http://www.youtube. com/watch? v=DHeB6ukmGqo

The clip froze and no sound ever came to me, and let that be, for I began to IMAGINE what the 'prophet' Lennon would have done if he had been invited to play Tel Aviv in celebration of Israel's 60th.


I did read that you Sir Paul blew in and out of the Church of The Nativity in the little town of Bethlehem: occupied territory, but you did not hang out with the people.

I IMAGINE Lennon would have walked from Jerusalem and through the Terminal to get there; the way all Palestinians must go. The Terminal puts one in mind of cattle being led to the slaughter.

I IMAGINE Lennon would have stayed a while and gathered a crowd in Manger Square.

I IMAGINE he would have ignited the poor and oppressed and voiceless with

Revolution
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87yq372R4Ts&feature=related



And then he might have laid The Beatitudes something like this:

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven."

Wake up to you own spiritual poverty, know your own limitations allow God for lack of a better word-to lead you on.


JC spoke Aramaic and in that ancient tongue he called Abba which translates as Mommy as much as Daddy and that is good news and yin and yang.

"My ways are not your ways. My thoughts are not yours." -Isaiah 55:8

"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."

Meek is nothing more than being patient with ignorance, slow to anger and never holding a grudge and Christ you know that ain't easy to do when they crucify you!

Christ, you know it ain't easy You know how hard it can be The way things go when they crucify you for just telling the truth

I am sure if Lennon had gone to east Jerusalem he would have spoken with Vanunu, a 21st century Jeremiah held under house arrest for telling the truth-which he does about the Apartheid Wall and the only place where WMD's can be found in the Mid East: Israel

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, they will be filled."

How comforted and fulfilled you could be in the good fight for justice and mercy for the poor, oppressed and voiceless.

 
"Blessed are the merciful, they will be shown mercy. for with the measure you measure against another, it will be measured back to you," the law of karma explained by JC in Luke 6:27-38.


"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they see God."


WAKE UP and see that He, She, The Divine Mystery of the Universe is within every man, every woman and every child. The Supreme Being is everywhere, the Alpha and Omega, beginning and end. Beyond The Universe -and yet so small; within the heart of every atom.


"Blessed are The Peacemakers: THEY shall be called the children of God."




Lennon did say, "Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends...I believe that as soon as people want peace in the world they can have it. The only trouble is they are not aware they can get it. …All we are saying is give peace a chance…All you need is love…Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one."

"[I am] quite willing to be the world's clown; if by doing it I do some good…And I'm saying peace…The struggle is in the mind. We must bury our own monsters and stop condemning people. We are all Christ and Hitler. We want Christ to win. We're trying to make Christ's message contemporary. What would he have done if he had advertisements, records, films, TV and newspapers! Christ made miracles to tell his message. Well, the miracle today is communications, so let's use it."

I am certain Lennon would have been a voice for the poor, oppressed and voiceless in Manger Square and would have reminded the world that 2008 is also the 60th Anniversary of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, upon which Israel's statehood was contingent upon upholding:

Article 19:
Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
 

Article 13:
(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.
(2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.

"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
