A cape on the island of Molokai in the Hawaiian Islands.

Halawa (AOW-12) was built as Blue Sunoca in 1929 by Sun Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co., Chester, PA, and operated as a tanker for the Sun Oil Co. until acquired by the Navy through the Maritime Commission in 1942. She was renamed Halawa and commissioned 10 April 1942, at Pearl Harbor, Lt. Comdr. W. J. Lane in command

Halawa was based at Pearl Harbor and vicinity during the entire war. She operated at the Naval Base and at Naval Air Station Kanoche supplying fuel oil and diesel fuel. The ship made occasional voyages to Palmyra, Canton, and Johnston Islands 1942-1944, supplying those bases with fuel. While returning to Pearl Harbor from Canton Island 21 December 1944 Halawa suffered a serious generator failure and was towed the rest of the way by tug ATR-12. After her arrival 26 December she stayed at Pearl Harbor until being towed to San Francisco after the war. Halawa arrived San Francisco 25 September 1945 and decommissioned 25 October. She was returned to tho Maritime Commission, was placed in reserve for a time, and was sold 5 July 1948 to Foss Launch and Tug Co.

Discovering Ancient Hawaii in the Halawa Valley, Molokai

One of the main draws of the Hawaiian island of Molokai is that you can get a taste of what Hawaii looked like in years past. There are no stoplights on Molokai, no chain stores, and the island is relatively undeveloped. Still, one of the best opportunities to step back in time and learn about Hawaiian culture and history is by paying a visit to the scenic Halawa Valley, Molokai’s oldest community.

The Halawa Valley was one of the first places in all of Hawaii settled by Polynesians, somewhere around 650 AD. At its peak, the valley had several thousand people living in it though the population has declined over the years due to its remote location and a history of natural disasters–tsunamis washed through the valley in both 1946 and 1957. Today, the hiking trail passes by ancient Hawaiian places of worship, irrigation systems, and historic taro ponds and ends at a 250-foot waterfall called Moa’ula Falls.

Today, only a few families remain on the land. To hike the Halawa Valley, you need to reserve a guided tour from a member of the last remaining families. The elder of the family, Pilipo Solatario, is the last living Hawaiian descendent born and raised in the valley who still lives there. His family owns the land and gives guided tours to visitors. When we were there, Pilipo had to attend a family funeral so we were guided by his grandson, Gabriel.

Gabriel lived on Oahu and Kauai growing up, but recently moved to Molokai to learn more about the culture and history of the land from his grandfather. He walked us through a few rocky streams and onto the trail pointing out native plants and their uses, stone walls from ancient temples, mixed in with stories of the valley’s history.

The trail ends at the gorgeous Moa’lua Falls. Local legend says that a giant lizard lives in the pool at the bottom of the water. Gabriel instructed me to drop a native ti leaf into the water to see if it floats. When it did, he knew the lizard was okay with our presence and it was safe for us to take a swim in the water. Sadly, even with the lizard’s permission, the water was cold, so I could only stay in for a few minutes.

After the hike we explored the coast of the valley passing by a tiny church with signage in Hawaiian.

A short walk down from the church, we found the beach where we saw a few local kids surfing and bodyboarding in the winter waves between the jagged rocks.

We wandered the rocks along the beach, taking in the impressive and rugged landscape before getting back on the road.


The General Council of the Assemblies of God (USA), one of the largest Pentecostal denominations in the United States, was organized in 1914 by a broad coalition of ministers who desired to work together to fulfill common objectives, such as sending missionaries and providing fellowship and accountability. Formed in the midst of the emerging worldwide Pentecostal revival, the Assemblies of God quickly took root in other countries and formed indigenous national organizations. The Assemblies of God (USA) is a constituent member of the World Assemblies of God Fellowship, the world's largest Pentecostal fellowship.

Historical Roots

Throughout the latter half of the 19 th century in the United States, Protestants from various backgrounds began to ask themselves why their churches did not seem to exhibit the same vibrant, faith-filled life as those in the New Testament. Many of these believers joined evangelical or Holiness churches, engaged in ardent prayer and personal sacrifice, and earnestly sought God. It was in this context that people began experiencing biblical spiritual gifts.

Pentecostals pioneers were hungry for authentic Christianity, and they looked to previous spiritual outpourings, such as the First Great Awakening (1730s-40s) and Second Great Awakening (1800s-30s), for inspiration and instruction. They identified themselves in the tradition of reformers and revivalists such as Martin Luther, John Wesley, and Dwight L. Moody.

The Pentecostal Revival

One of the focal points of the emerging Pentecostal movement was known as the Azusa Street revival (1906-09). It was an unlikely location for an event that would change the face of Christianity. In the summer of 1906, revival erupted in the newly-formed congregation meeting at the small, run-down Apostolic Faith Mission at 312 Azusa Street in Los Angeles, California. Critics attacked the congregation because its mild-mannered African-American Holiness preacher, William J. Seymour, preached racial reconciliation and the restoration of biblical spiritual gifts. The revival soon became a local sensation, then attracted thousands of curiosity seekers and pilgrims from around the world.

Seymour had been a student of Charles Parham, who provided the doctrinal framework for the young Pentecostal movement. Parham&rsquos identification in scripture of speaking in tongues as the &ldquoBible evidence&rdquo (later called the &ldquoinitial evidence&rdquo) of Spirit baptism became a defining mark of the emerging Pentecostal movement. After students at his Bethel Bible School in Topeka, Kansas, began speaking in tongues at a prayer meeting on January 1, 1901, Parham, through his Apostolic Faith Movement, had some success in promoting the restoration of the gift of tongues. While the Apostolic Faith Movement was largely confined to the south central United States, the revival at Azusa Street catapulted Pentecostalism before a worldwide audience.

Formation of the Assemblies of God

As the revival rapidly spread, many Pentecostals recognized the need for greater organization and accountability. The founding fathers and mothers of the Assemblies of God met in Hot Springs, Arkansas on April 2-12, 1914 to promote unity and doctrinal stability, establish legal standing, coordinate the mission enterprise, and establish a ministerial training school. These founders constituted the first General Council and elected two officers: Eudorus N. Bell as chairman (title later changed to general superintendent) and J. Roswell Flower as secretary, as well as the first executive presbytery.

The approximately 300 delegates to the first General Council represented a variety of independent churches and networks of churches, including the &ldquoAssociation of Christian Assemblies&rdquo in Indiana and the &ldquoChurch of God in Christ and in Unity with the Apostolic Faith Movement&rdquo from Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Texas.

Almost immediately, leaders were faced with a doctrinal dispute &ndash whether to abandon traditional Trinitarian theology in favor of a modal monarchian view of the godhead (also called the &ldquoNew Issue&rdquo or Oneness theology). In 1916 the General Council approved a Statement of Fundamental Truths, which affirmed Trinitarian orthodoxy.

From the beginning, evangelism and missions have been central to the identity of the Assemblies of God and have resulted in a continuing growth at home and abroad. At its centennial in 2014, the Assemblies of God claimed a constituency in the United States of 3,146,741 adherents 12,849 churches and 36,884 ministers. The General Council supported 2,847 foreign missionaries and associates working with the broader World Assemblies of God Fellowship, whose adherents numbered more than 67 million.

The aggressive missions programs of the church are designed to establish self-supporting and self-propagating national church bodies in every country. Ministers and leaders are trained in over 2,500 foreign Bible schools and extension programs. The Assemblies of God has 17 endorsed Bible colleges, universities, and a seminary in the United States.

The National Office of the Assemblies of God is located in Springfield, Missouri. The National Office includes an administration building, the Gospel Publishing House, and the International Distribution Center.

You've only scratched the surface of Halawa family history.

Between 1974 and 1987, in the United States, Halawa life expectancy was at its lowest point in 1974, and highest in 1987. The average life expectancy for Halawa in 1974 was 48, and 70 in 1987.

An unusually short lifespan might indicate that your Halawa ancestors lived in harsh conditions. A short lifespan might also indicate health problems that were once prevalent in your family. The SSDI is a searchable database of more than 70 million names. You can find birthdates, death dates, addresses and more.

Halawa Valley: a Culturally Rich Valley on Molokai’s East End

There are hundreds of valleys in the Hawaiian Islands—arguably even thousands—but none can compare to the cultural history of Halawa Valley on Molokai.

Hawaii’s Oldest, Continuously Inhabited Spot

Here on the island’s northeastern tip, where the winding road that leads east from Kaunakakai finally comes to an end, Ancient Hawaiians gradually established one of Hawaiʻi’s earliest settlements. With its fertile plains for growing taro and abundance of flowing fresh water, Halawa was a place that not only offered the basic resources for survival but also housed a protected cove for launching boats and canoes. It’s believed that Hawaiians inhabited Halawa as early as 650 AD, and over 1,350 years later, it’s currently Hawaii’s oldest spot known to have been settled and continuously populated.

A 1946 Tsunami Forced Residents to Leave Halawa Valley

Though the valley today is only home to a handful of off-grid residents, there was once a time when verdant Halawa was home to a village of thousands. All of that changed abruptly, however, in 1946, when a devastating tsunami flooded the valley and ruined the soil with saltwater. Many of the valley’s homes were destroyed, and with the groundwater tainted for growing crops and a sudden lack of food, many of Halawa’s longtime residents were forced to get up and go.

Water From Mooula Falls Has Revitalized the Valley

Today, after irrigation has helped to bring water from Mo‘oula Falls, and hardy residents have spent countless hours re-establishing the fields, Halawa is home to a cluster of residents who successfully manage to inhabit the valley in the ways of their ancestors before them. Fish are caught past the breaking waves, pigs roam free in the valley, and fields of taro wave their bright green leaves again in the wind.

Take a Guided Cultural Hike through Halawa Valley

When visiting Halawa Valley today, the best way to experience the history and beauty is with a guided cultural hike, which not only takes visitors to 250 ft. Mo‘oula Falls, but also incorporates history lessons and passes historical relics. Learn how Hawaiians lived off the land—and manage to do so today—and experience the proper respect and protocols for entering this hallowed place.

Sink Your Toes in the Sand at the End of the Road

While guided tours are the only way to legally visit the falls, visitors who just want to lounge on the beach can simply drive to the end of the road and lay out a towel in the sand. Rarely will you find many people here —even on weekends or holidays—and occasionally you’ll find surfers riding the waves that thunder ashore each winter.

And, whether you spend an entire day in Halawa hiking and learning its history, or simply drive to the end of the road to sink your toes in the sand, there’s an inescapably powerful feeling that permeates everywhere in the valley, as you stand in this scenic and storied spot like Ancient Hawaiians of old.

Tala Halawa and the progressive media’s anti-Semitism blindspot

The tale of Tala Halawa has an ever-mounting horror to it: each sentence is more disturbing than the last. First we learn that this BBC journalist proclaimed during the 2014 Israel-Gaza war that ‘Israel is more Nazi than Hitler’ and that ‘Hitler was right’. Then we encounter her assertion that ‘ur media is controlled by ur zionist government’ and her sharing on Facebook the same image that saw MP Naz Shah suspended from the Labour Party in 2016, an image that advocates the ‘transportation’ of Israel to the United States to end ‘foreign interference’ in the Middle East.

Next up is a graphic Halawa tweeted showing a child being burned on a menorah, the candelabrum used in Jewish religious rituals, in an apparent reference to the 2014 torture murder of Palestinian teenager Mohammed Abu Khdeir by three Israelis. We might not need to hear any more by this point, but there is more nonetheless. Halawa, who is based in the Palestinian-run city of Ramallah, has declared that ‘Zionists can’t get enough of our blood’ and that ‘they’re are crying the holocaust every single moment but they’re practicing it every single moment as well’.

Somehow the horror doesn’t stop there. Halawa, it emerges, did not make these comments during her current employment with the BBC — she made them before being recruited. The BBC hired the ‘Hitler was right’ lady after she had stated publicly that ‘Hitler was right’. The awfulness isn’t even over, because what assignment did the BBC give the ‘Hitler was right’ lady? ‘Palestine specialist’ at BBC Monitoring. She has most recently produced a news video on model Bella Hadid ‘speaking out’ for the Palestinians and contributed to reporting on the deaths of children in the latest fighting between Israel and Hamas.

The BBC says it’s investigating and it has pretty serious questions to answer about how it came to hire a Hitler sympathiser and allow her to cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But what about the rest of the mainstream and progressive media? In recent years, particularly after the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s victory in 2016, there has been a surge in coverage of the far-right and, after the murder of George Floyd, of racism.

Some of this has produced stellar journalism on the nationalist breach of the political mainstream and the threat of white nationalist terrorism, but there have also been ideological efforts to cast mainstream people and ideas as racists and fascists. Consider the progressive media’s routine defamation of France as ‘Islamophobic’ for trying to tackle Islamism in the banlieues or of opponents of identity politics as ‘far-right’. Either way, there has been a prodigious amount of coverage of extremism and racism in the past few years.

Which is why, while the BBC has a lot of questions to answer, progressive media outlets have just one.

Since the start of the year, the Guardianhas published 154 articles about the far-right. As of 12 p.m. today, it carries not one word about Tala Halawa. Why?

The Huffington Post has dedicated itself to challenging what it sees as racism in the British media, with recent headlines including ‘Of Course There’s Bigotry In The Media. We Need Allies, Not Silence, To End It’ ‘Journalists Of Colour Reject Claim That “UK Media Is Not Bigoted”’ and ‘I’m A Black Journalist. The Media’s Inability To Tackle Its Racism Has Me Questioning My Future’. HuffPo has yet to mention that a BBC journalist said ‘Hitler was right’. Why?

The New York Times has spent the past several years presenting Britain to its readers as a racist backwater, yet it appears to be in no rush to bring them news of a racism scandal at one of the UK’s most important institutions. Why?

Why? Because when progressives talk about racism, anti-Semitism isn’t what they have in mind. When they talk about the far-right, they cannot conceive of a Palestinian as ‘far-right’, even when she is bigging up Hitler in between railing against Zionist control of the media. (If we can discern anything from the BBC’s hiring of Halawa and the progressive media’s radio silence on the matter, it’s that Zionists most definitely do not control the media.) And when a member of another ethnic minority engages in anti-Semitism, progressive minds deploy their own Iron Dome to deflect uncomfortable facts that threaten the catechisms of critical race theory and privilege. People who believe that their political views are a product of their superior sense of empathy display a profound lack of empathy when it comes to Jews.
