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

"If enough Christians followed the gospel, they could bring any state to its knees." 
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."

Dr. Al-Arian's Condition Grave on 9th Day

On Monday, March 3, 2008, Dr. Sami Al-Arian began a hunger strike for justice to protest continued government harassment. Al-Arian, a diabetic, has had no food or water since that day and he is in very bad shape.


Dr. Al-Arian, who has lost more than 20 pounds and is growing weaker, has been moved to a federal medical facility in Butner, North Carolina.


The hunger strike is the third by the Palestinian activist, who has served four years in prison and who was to have been released on April 7 and deported. Although a jury of his peers failed to return even a single guilty verdict, Dr. Al-Arian remains in prison with no indication that he will ever be released.


The mainstream media is not covering this issue.

TAKE ACTION NOW: Please spend some time today phoning or writing your local newspapers and radio stations.  An innocent man's life may depend on it.  Please write to the following individuals to ask for an immediate end to Dr. Al-Arian's harassment and imprisonment:


It can be as simple as this:

Please help Dr. Sami Al-Arian stay alive during his hunger strike. Our government is responsible for his life during his hunger strike. Release him on the scheduled release date of April 7, 2008. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gordon Kromberg is a well-known Islamophobe, who has made inappropriate and inflammatory comments about Muslims.    In 2006 he railed against the "Islamization of America." He will keep postponing his release for one reason or another unless you step in.


Do the right thing and step in. Dr. Al-Arian is no terrorist. He was a hard-working professor, father, husband and a man who loves the United States and Palestinians. His views are shared by many Americans, including me.

Political sweep of influential leftists in Bethlehem
Palestine News Network
March 3, 2008

After a memorial for the death of founder of the leftist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, George Habash, in Bethlehem's Church of Nativity on Sunday morning, Israeli forces stormed the city early Monday and arrested eight of its members.

In a large incursion, as reported by security sources and eyewitnesses, Israeli forces stormed the West Bank city from all directions. Twenty military machines hit Deheisha Refugee Camp, raiding a number of homes, tearing them apart in invasive searches.

Six citizens were blindfolded, bound and taken away, including 53 year old journalist Hassan Abdel Jawad. He is a member of the board of the Palestinian Journalists Union.

Also arrested in Deheisha were 40 year old Naim Abu Akr, 33 year old Shabab Mezher, and 34 year old Mohammed Fawzi Al Sadjadi.

In the town of Beit Sahour, to the southeast of Bethlehem, Israeli forces arrested 44 year old Yousef Hiat, and then in Al Doha Village closer to Deheisha Camp the Israelis conducted a raid campaign and took a 36 year old government school teacher.

Eyewitnesses report Monday morning that Israeli soldiers began the arrest campaign at 2:00 am and ended at 5:00 am. Some 40 of the soldiers were dressed in civilian clothes and all entrances and exits to Bethlehem were closed, with flying checkpoints imposed throughout the governorate.

Sources report that all the detainees are members of the leftist party and worked voluntarily in leading positions in the cultural community. This was seen as a political sweep of influential leftists.

"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
