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

I have got more calls from anonymous persons stop blogging or I would be killed. Yet, I would keep on this track. Some of you do wonder how I send news in such conditions.

This is very risky since shells rain down and drones hover over me! I will keep this up.

This is a new report for the 14th day of Gaza War and the outcomes of Israeli invasion. For more reporting, breaking news, interviews and accounts in Gaza, you could reach me on my contact info below. Please try both numbers below because there is a big problem in communication resulted in Israeli power cuts.

Dear Readers and Friends,
 
After nearly 18 hours and tireless efforts from our web team, the Palestine Chronicle had recovered after being hacked by an Israeli group dubbed "Blue Dophin". We are back online and back on track, with the latest and most critical news about the unfolding events in Gaza. Thank you so much for your encouragement; we were flooded with emails expressing outrage and concern about our operations, we are so grateful to be back in this time when we all need each other the most!
 
Warm Wishes from the PC Team:

Put forth by MSP Hugh O'Donnell, who was with us on the Dignity's 3rd voyage to Gaza, November 7, 2008

S3M-3175 Hugh O'Donnell:

Treat the Dignity with Humanitarian Dignity—That the Parliament recognizes the determination of the Free Gaza Movement to continue its humanitarian mission to deliver medical aid to the people of Gaza in spite of the fact that in the early hours of Tuesday, 30 December 2008, the Israeli navy attacked the motor vessel Dignity, which was loaded with medical supplies and carried, among other civilians, doctors headed to Gaza to assist with the humanitarian crisis there, in an apparent attempt to disable the vessel and in a manner that jeopardized the lives of the 16 civilians on board;

 believes that neither the boat nor its passengers, doctors, journalists, members of parliament and human rights observers trying to reach the people of Gaza to deliver much needed aid to the Palestinians there constituted any kind of danger to the Israeli naval forces; further believes that any future deliveries of humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza by the Dignity, duly notified in advance to the Israeli navy, Ministry of Defence, and Foreign Ministry should not be impeded in any way by the Israeli defence forces, and considers that any such attack on the vessel will be premeditated and any harm inflicted on the civilians on board will be the result of a deliberate attack on unarmed civilians.

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.
