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."

Thanks!
 
Yes, Eileen, someone is messing with the petition. Big-time. Twice now it has been closed down now without our saying so; twice I have re-opened it. Last I looked, at change.org if you search for 'vanunu' the petition does not come up...many many people find their signatures are not recorded.  We are about to mention this on the front of the petition (if we can), something about 'please sign until you get a confirmation email'. Some people have tried up to seven times to sign it.
 

"Anyway, it's pretty much obvious that we have upset somebody. That means we're having an impact, doesn't it?

"As Barbara Faibish says, it just makes her 'more determined.'"
 
Thanks for the feedback -- keep it up.
Best regards Gail

PRESS RELEASE

 

CALL FOR FREEDOM FOR MORDECHAI VANUNU

ON NAGASAKI ANNIVERSARY, 10TH AUGUST, 2010

 

Many hundreds of people from around the World have signed an International Petition (http://humanrights.change.org/petitions/view/release_mordechai_vanunu), calling on President Obama, Prime Ministers Netanyahu and Cameron, and other world leaders, to ‘do all they can’ to gain the release from Israel of Mordechai Vanunu (the Israeli nuclear whistleblower).

 

Vanunu was released from Ramle Israeli Prison, on Sunday 8th August, 2010, after serving almost 3 months in solitary confinement  under cruel, inhuman and degrading conditions. This further sentence was imposed on Vanunu for speaking to foreign media.  Although now out of prison he is still not allowed to leave Israel. The draconian restrictions remain on him, and he is unable to speak to foreigners, foreign media, or move freely within Israel without Government permission.

 

Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate, who together with Gerry Grehan, Chair of the Peace People, launched the International Appeal for Vanunu’s release, said today:

 

“It is unacceptable that Vanunu continues to be punished by the Israeli Government for telling the world that Israel has nuclear weapons. After 18 years in prison (12 years in solitary confinement), and a further six living under severe restrictions, including the recent 3 month prison sentence, how much longer will Israel continue to punish Mordechai Vanunu for telling the truth?”

 

The people of the world can do something to help by signing the International Campaign online  petition (http://humanrights.change.org/petitions/view/release_mordechai_vanunu) which calls on world leaders to act to ensure Vanunu’s right to freedom of speech and freedom to travel - basic rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and many other International Laws, which Israel continues to break and act with impunity.

 

August 10th, is the Anniversary of Nagasaki, the day on which we remember those who died in the second nuclear holocaust, which followed on the first nuclear holocaust of Hiroshima. We remember too all those who are working to rid the world of nuclear weapons and ensure ‘No more Hiroshima’s’ ‘ No more Nagasaki’s’. It is fitting we act to support Vanunu in his struggle for a nuclear free Middle East, and a nuclear free world. He has paid a high price in following his conscious and calling us to do the same. He has suffered enough, time to let him go free.

 

President Obama, who has expressed the wish (as Vanunu does) for a nuclear free world, has the power to help free Vanunu, who 24 years ago expressed and acted to fulfil such a vision.

In 1995, from Ashkelon Prison, Mordechai Vanunu noted:

"A radioactive cloud consumed rubbed out Hiroshima...A live nuclear test sentenced you. A nuclear laboratory…children women trees animals in and under a nuclear mushroom…burning… burned…flattened to ground radioactive ash-Hiroshima...Nuclear weapons gamblers win against you…Hollywood doesn't know you - you are not a Jewish Holocaust."

"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
