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

June 23, 2012: Vanunu Mordechai: Friend, Hero, Brother’s Latest Message
June 23, 2012: Vanunu Mordechai: Friend, Hero, Brother's Latest Message 

"Mordechai Vanunu–my friend, my hero, my brother."-Daniel Ellsberg, 31 December 2009.



On Flag Day in the USA, I received an email written in Jerusalem and disseminated by the National Catholic Worker/CW list-serve:


"Mordechai Vanunu needs the CW…Vanunu cannot eat Nobel Prize nominations, nor speak with them. He needs money and friends in order to survive his continued persecution…Vanunu is both Prophet and pauper. Like many ‘veterans’ he has special needs."

I forwarded that email to Israel’s Nuclear Whistle Blower and he replied with an idea for me; but I had another, and after a few email exchanges we agreed on a plan-which follows this background story-but first he also wrote:



"Since January when I moved back to East Jerusalem, I am again meeting with foreigners and going to churches. I am ready to meet anyone who is coming here...it is good for the mind to know that some one care…and Freedom Must Come."


But in the moment I read the CW email about Vanunu I heard within my heart:

"If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion--how can God's love be in that person?" 1 John 3:17




And then I recalled the first time I wrote an article calling him a prophet and Vanunu shot back: "DO NOT CALL ME THAT!"


But in the spirit of freedom of speech, I do!

I also contend than prophets do NOT predict the future-as much as they point out impending doom, are never esteemed by their own, rarely respected in their life time, but they do provoke those so inclined to think about God-to think!


Vanunu pointed the way to Israel's clandestine weapons of mass destruction program underground in the Negev desert in 1986. To this day the Dimona remains un-inspected by IAEA inspectors and many consider Vanunu a traitor, but all he did was TELL THE TRUTH 26 years ago!



Vanunu also puts me mind of the Hebrew prophet Jeremiah who spent much of his life under house arrest in Jerusalem, for being a truth teller.


We know more about the personal life and struggles of Jeremiah than any other Hebrew prophet and Jeremiah, translates as "The Lord throws"-as in hurling.

Jeremiah had few friends and is considered primarily a prophet of doom.


Jeremiah was intensely introspective, self-critical, timid by nature but honest and open about his feelings. Jeremiah never married and began prophesying in Judah from 604-586, a time of storm and stress when the doom of entire nations-including Judah itself-was being sealed. Jeremiah had been the king's friend and confident, but the prophet soon entered a dreary round of persecution and imprisonment, alternating with only brief periods of freedom, and lived under virtual house arrest for speaking his conscience.

Jeremiah said, "I cannot keep silent…Disaster follows disaster; the land lies in ruins…My people are fools; they do not know me."-4:19.


Exactly seven years ago to the very day I am publishing this piece and during our third meeting, Vanunu was telling me about his childhood in Marrakesh, Morocco.


When I told him I had never been and then Vanunu asked me if I had ever seen the  "Dorothy Day" movie, "The Man who Knew Too Much" for the beginning scenes were shot where he grew up.



I laughed out loud because he meant to say Doris Day and because in that very moment I realized my most cherished childhood dream had matured!


My childish dream had been to grow up and become Brenda Starr, the red headed, ace investigative journalist, who was smarter than the guys, glamorous and headstrong. Star reporter for the metropolitan daily, The Flash, Brenda traveled the world solving mysteries and unearthing scoops. Brenda intuitively knew when somebody was not telling the truth and fearlessly went around the world searching for unusual and usually dangerous stories.


Vanunu's slip of the tongue was the catalyst for me to begin to imagine following in the footsteps of Dorothy Day, the 20th century socialist muckraker who became a committed Christian of The Beatitudes and a voice for the voiceless in her newspaper "The Catholic Worker" which persists today.

Three weeks after my first of seven trips to the State of Israel and Land of Palestine, I established 
WeAreWideAwake.org


Dorothy Day knew God is LOVE and "Love is not the starving of whole populations. Love is not the bombardment of open cities. Love is not killing...Our manifesto is the Sermon on the Mount, which means that we will try to be peacemakers."



Day was also a prolific writer who understood:



"Writing a book is hard, because you are giving yourself away. But if you love, you want to give yourself. You write as you are impelled to write, about man and his problems, his relation to God and his fellows. You write about yourself because in the long run all man's problems are the same, his sustenance and love."



I know it too, but work can be labors of love when you love what you do; and as I have now begun my fourth book-working title is "VANUNU Waits for Liberty and My Life as a Candidate of Conscience for US HOUSE" all proceeds received for my third book 
 BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu's FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010 are now going to Vanunu’s Liberty Fund and liberty means Freedom!

In 1987, from Ashkelon Prison, Vanunu wrote:

"I have no choice. I'm a little man, a citizen, one of the people, but I'll do what I have to. I've heard the voice of my conscience  and there's nowhere to hide. The world is small, small for Big Brother. 
I'm on your mission. I'm doing my duty. Take it from me. Come and see for yourselves. Lighten my burden. Stop [this] train. Get off [this] train. The next stop -- nuclear disaster."

"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
