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.

March 2, 2009: Vanunu Writes to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee: "I cannot be part of a list of laureates that includes Simon Peres" UPDATED MARCH 3rd with GRATITUDE to THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

 Photo of Vanunu copyright Meir Vanunu, Nov. 2007. Photo design by the Editor of The Peoples Voice. 

[Occupied East Jerusalem, March 1, 2009] Mordechai Vanunu wrote the Nobel Peace Prize Committee in Oslo:


Dear Nobel Peace Prize Committee in Oslo,
 
I am Vanunu Mordechai, who has been nominated several times to Nobel Peace Prize, also this year’s 2009 award.

I am asking the committee to remove my name from the list for this year’s list of nominations.

My main reason for this is that I cannot be part of  a list of laureates that includes Simon Peres. He is the man who was behind all the Israeli atomic policy.

Peres established and developed the atomic weapon program in Dimona in Israel. Exactly like Dr. Khan did in Pakistan, Peres was the man behind the atomic weapon proliferation to South Africa and other states. He was also, for instance, behind the nuclear weapon test in South Africa in 1978.

Peres was the man who ordered the kidnapping of me in Italy Rome, Sept. 30, 1986, and for the secret trial and sentencing of me as a spy and traitor for 18 years in isolation in prison in Israel.

Until now he continues to oppose my freedom and release, in spite of my serving full sentence 18 years.

From all these reasons I don’t want be nominated and will not accept this nomination.

I say No to any nomination as long as I am not free, that is, as long as I am still forced to be in Israel.

WHAT I WANT IS FREEDOM AND ONLY FREEDOM.

Thank you
vmjc

Israeli Nobel Peace Prize nominee wants to be removed from list
Middle East News
http://www.monstersandcritics.com/news/middleeast/news/

Mar 3, 2009, 16:10 GMT


Oslo - Israeli nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu has asked to be removed from a list of nominees for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, reports said Tuesday.

In a letter to the five-member Nobel Committee, the former nuclear technician who was jailed for leaking details of Israel's nuclear programme to a British newspaper in 1986, said he wanted to be removed from the list of candidates.

'My main reason for this is that I cannot be part of a list of laureates that includes Simon Peres. He is the man who was behind all the Israeli atomic policy,' Vanunu said in the letter.

The letter was cited by the online edition of the trade union journal Frifagbevegelse published by the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions as well as the website www.thepeoplesvoice.org 

Vanunu was released from prison in 2004 after serving an 18-year sentence for treason.

In his letter he stated that Peres, a former Nobel Peace Prize laureate and current president of Israel, 'was the man who ordered my kidnapping' in in Rome in 1986.

'Until now he continues to oppose my freedom and release, in spite of my serving the full sentence of 18 years,' Vanunu said, adding he 'will not accept this nomination.'

Vanunu has been mentioned in recent years as a nominee although the Nobel Committee advises that nominations be kept undisclosed. However, there are no rules against the procedure allowing plenty of speculation before the announcement, normally in mid-October.

This year, a record 205 nominations, including 33 organizations, have been made for the award, according to the Norwegian Nobel Institute. The Peace Prize is one of several prizes endowed by Swedish industrialist and dynamite inventor Alfred Nobel.



Just weeks after his FREEDOM OF SPEECH TRIAL began the whistle blower of Israel's underground WMD Facility sent this message to Senator Clinton and USA Christians re: The Apartheid Wall

 


On Jan. 25, 2006, Vanunu's FREEDOM OF SPEECH TRIAL began in Israel.

In July 2007, Vanunu was sentenced to 6 months in jail for speaking to foreigners in 2004, who happened to be media.

His Supreme Court Appeal is TBA, but the 5th year of restrictions that deny him the RIGHT to leave the state, the RIGHT to speak to non-Israelis expires April 21, 2009.

Global citizens have been petitioning President Obama with cut/paste/edits of the following.

Thanks for doing something too.


The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear President Obama,

The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights is binding on "all countries of the world". The statehood of Israel was contingent upon upholding it.

EQUAL human rights are declared as UNDERSTOOD at the outset of the document as "inalienable" and therefore can not be denied by any government.

As a person of conscience, I am asking you to do all in your power to help Mordechai Vanunu receive in actuality the inalienable right to leave the state of Israel:

"Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country."-Article 13:2

As a person of conscience, I am asking you to lead Israel to be merciful and just towards Vanunu and encourage them to drop the 3 month jail sentence against him for speaking to foreigners in 2004; who happened to be media.

"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 19.

As a person of conscience, I am asking you to do all in your power to help Mordechai Vanunu receive his inalienable human rights.

As a person of conscience, I am also asking you to be a true friend to Israel.

"Always be ready to speak your mind and a base man will avoid you. Opposition is True Friendship."-William Blake, "Marriage of Heaven and Hell" 1796

As a person of hope, I look forward with gratitude that you as a person of conscience will do something.

"HOPE has two children. The first is ANGER at the way things are. The second is COURAGE to DO SOMETHING about it."-St. Augustine

Most Sincerely,



USA Citizens can email the following with a 5,000 character max:

Since his release from jail April 21, 2004, Mordecahi Vanunu has been denied the RIGHT to leave Israel and denied the RIGHT to speak to non-Israelis.

As a person of conscience I request you do everything in your power to obtain justice for Vanunu: release to full freedom.

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 19.

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
