July 22, marks the fourth anniversary of my website, but I did not
establish the 'blog' until October 8, 2005, when I wrote:
It was about six months ago that I heard Charlie Rose on his PBS show say something like;
"We have yet to begin to imagine the potential of the Internet."--
When I began writing for WeAreWideAwake/WAWA about three months ago, I imagined it would be an instrument to provoke thought, engage a dialogue and stimulate American's to do something about the state of our Union and for all our sisters and brothers in Israel Palestine.
Imagine the potential of the Internet. [end]
I still am imagining, but have had no luck engaging USA Christians, but have managed to get myself censored/banned/deactivated and deleted from Reverend Jim Wallis's Belief Net blog, Facebook Read more... the Democratic Underground [http://www.wearewideawake.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=688&Itemid=179 ]and the DAILY KOS [-"It Sure Smells Like a Right Wing Zionist Cabal at The Daily Kos " ].
I have a link that tells me daily, what countries are hitting on my site, and the USA Government and Military are considered a country on that link. In the last few months of the Bush Administration, Big Brother dropped out of the top 30 of over 75+ countries that hit on WAWA; but ever since February 2009, when I began contacting President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton to do something to help free Vanunu, Big Brother has hovered in the top twenty [Israel is consistently in the top ten.]
But, after five months of agitating them and never receiving any reply and because this is the 4th anniversary of my membership in the New Fourth Estate-which equates to activist reporters- I established a Soapbox Alert to Obama and Biden @
-"I am not harming Israel. I am not interested in Israel. I want to tell you something very important. I suffered here 18 years because I am a Christian, because I was baptized into Christianity. If I was a Jew I wouldn't have all this suffering here in isolation for 18 years. Only because I was a Christian man."
It was in May of 2005, just prior to my first [now 7] trips to Israel Palestine that I phoned Mother Agapia Stephanopolous, a Russian Orthodox nun and the administrator of the Orthodox School of Bethany in Jerusalem. I was inspired by her bold words to Congress about The Wall and also, I wanted to schedule an appointment with her for spiritual direction.
