Profile Information

My personal story:
I have been to Israel Palestine five times since June 2005.
One month after my first trip I founded WAWA:
http://www.wearewideawake.org/

My first book "Keep Hope Alive" is an historical fiction, a true NAKBA memoir entwined with fictional characters who represent different ways to intuit and serve God and all proceeds go to the non-profit Olive Trees Foundation for Peace which is dedicated to raise awareness and funds to help replace the over one million trees The Wall has destroyed.

My "Memoirs of a Nice Irish American 'Girl's' Life in Occupied Territory" is about my experiences on SABEEL reality tours, with ICAHD, Anarchists Against the Wall and I am the
Producer of "30 Minutes With Vanunu" and "13 Minutes with Vanunu" which are freely streaming on my site.
Why I want peace:
A little boy of Bethlehem- George of Beit Jala adorns the banner of my site. His photo was published in The Florida Catholic in 2000.

He was standing in the rubble of what had been his bedroom the night before the IOF demolished it. The shrapnel read: "MADE IN USA" and the second I saw his eyes, my heart said DO SOMETHING.

I met George for the first time in 2005 and I vowed the rest of my life would be dedicated to doing something to help end the occupation of Palestine.
Interests and activities:
writing, speaking, pursuing justice and seeking peace
Something you didn't know about me:
i am a middle aged roller blader
How I found mepeace.org:
Jim Vitarello sent an email about you
What I want to achieve here:
Only in Solidarity do "we have it in our power to begin the world again" and "the world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion."-Tom Paine

Shministim: Among the Leader's in the Way to a New Israel

Posted on December 12, 2008 at 7:30pm 0 Comments

Shministim means “twelfth-graders” in Hebrew and military service is mandatory upon graduation from Israeli high school.



The Shministim are Israeli youth of conscience who refuse to serve in the Israeli Army because it is the force that enforces Israel’s 40+-year occupation of indigenous Palestinians.



The first Shministim letter was sent to Prime Minister Golda Meir. In 2008 alone, one hundred youth have signed the following letter, which cost them a jail term in an… Continue

GAZA (24 August 2008) - Early yesterday evening, against all odds, 42 global citizens on two small boats: the SS Free Gaza and the SS Liberty, broke the siege on Gaza and opened the eyes of the world.



Two years in the planning and sailing over 350 kilometers through choppy seas, despite threats from the Israeli government that they would use force to stop them, the fearless crew sailed the last hours of their journey without communications and navigation systems which had been… Continue

Reflection on the 63rd Anniversary of USA Terrorism+A Revolution of Love

“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



"In all of earth’s sixty-five-million-year history, we are living in the most dangerous of times. The fact that a bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and… Continue

Request for a 'letter of recommendation' to the Jerusalem Hug Foundation

Dear Eileen Fleming,

Last June 24th approximately 2000 people embraced the Old City of Jerusalem. They walked around the city walls, holding hands and expressing the unity of the Old City. Inhabitants of Jerusalem, Israeli and Palestinians, as well as peace activists from the entire world are standing side by side in their wish for peace and in their love for Jerusalem.

Since 2007 the Jerusalem Hug has been organized, as a collaboration between the ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’, the ‘Jerusalem Peacemakers’ and a Dutch group of light workers coming from Amsterdam.
The ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’ are a group of people from several peace movement organizations in Israel, under direction by Dvora Pearlman, established to create peace in Jerusalem.
The ‘Jerusalem Peacemakers’ consists of a group of passionate and involved Jewish and Palestinian inhabitants of Jerusalem under direction of Eliyahu McLean and Ibrahim Abu el Hawa who form an international network on inter religious bases with the aim to create peace and unity in Jerusalem. “When real peace in the holy land will be realized, then it will be possible to engineer peace in the whole world.”
In Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Rob Schrama, artist and peace activist, supports the ‘Jerusalem Hug’ together with a small team of involved and passionate fellow workers.

Together we established the ‘Jerusalem Hug Foundation’ that will be involved to get international support.

On May 21 2007 and on June 24 2008 the Big Hug of Jerusalem took place for the first and second time. Both Jerusalem Hugs were visited by more than 2000 participants, inhabitants of Jerusalem, Palestinians and Israeli, as well as peace activists from Israel and from all over the world.

On June 21 2009 a new Jerusalem Hug will be realized. The aim of the Jerusalem Hug is to promote a peaceful experience of freedom and joy to all people. The Jerusalem Hug will focus on love, respect and unity. With this attitude the participants will spread out around the walls of the Old City holding hands, singing and praying for peace and respect for all humankind.

Drumming together is an returning activity in every Jerusalem Hug, connecting the different population groups. During the first Jerusalem Hug in 2007 Palestinian and Israeli drummers from Jerusalem played together. As a result of this experience they decided to continue playing together. Several times they played together at the Damascus Gate to stimulate the rhythm of peace in the hearts of the people.

During the coming Jerusalem Hug, the Palestine and Israeli drummers will get support from internationally famous drummers. GrandMotherDrum, coming from Alaska and Cesar Zuiderwijk, drummer in the rock band ‘Golden Earring’ will invite all drummers in Jerusalem to create together a concert in the park along the north site of the wall.

The Jerusalem school kids, at least one class of Palestinians and one class of Israeli children are coming together during the Jerusalem Hug to fly their Kites for Peace above the thousands of participants. They will express that the children of Jerusalem want to live in a city were peace, freedom and tolerance are the foundation of our coexisting.

The ‘Jerusalem Hug’ stands symbol for another way to achieve peace. Everywhere the belief in a political solution of the Middle East conflict has been gone down to point zero. There ought to be found another way and that is the way of the heart. We believe that when we find peace in ourselves and when we are able to forgive, world peace will come closer.
The Jerusalem Hug gives expression to this wish for change as a concrete statement. Jerusalem stands as a symbol for peace and forgiveness in the world. Let Jerusalem be a city of connection, the heart of the world where unity and peace will be a fact. Every year, we will increase the Jerusalem Hug to a lager event, with every year more and more participants. Let the ‘Jerusalem Hug’ fill Jerusalem completely with love, so there will not be place for hatred anymore.

We request you to send a letter of recommendation to the Jerusalem Hug Foundation, a supporting letter that we can send to the funds we are approaching for financing our event. The best way to send this letter before December 24 to the “Jerusalem Hug Foundation” Krom Boomsloot 16, 1011 GW Amsterdam, The Netherlands or email it to: mail@jerusalemhug.org

We thank you for your cooperation and we hope to hold hands with you during the coming Jerusalem Hug.

Sincerely;

Rob Schrama

Shalom-salaam Eileen,
I see that you were at the founding conference of the Network of Spiritual Progressives in Berkeley, 2005. So was I! I'm not sure if we met there, but it's great to see you here.
Blessings,

Hello Eileen, It is great to have you here. My apologies, I only just noticed your query from about 10 days ago. I’ll send you a private message, as soon as we are 'friends'. The friends icon is along the top, next to the private message icon. It is not unusual for new peacemakers to miss the icons.

Hi H + MM,
Yes, indeed I was banned and censored from the DK:
June 7, 2007 WAWA Blog:
"It Sure Smells Like a Right Wing Zionist Cabal at The Daily Kos "
http://www.wearewideawake.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=534&Itemid=167

Being cyber slandered is what happens when speaking out for human rights for Palestinians and Vanunu, and the side effect is-it fills one with even more passion to persist seeking justice.

MM- i will keep my eyes and ears open for that "some one" who can help you and hope + pray great success 2 U!

Eileen! I'm Hallan. I use to read your blog posts on Dailykos! I believe you were banned because some people (pumpkinlove and another american) complain about people that are are either too pro-Palestine, or come off as anti-Israel.

I thought what Kos didn't shameful. You're awesome!
