It was Christmas Eve 2004 that I began to petition THE MEDIA and my government to help FREE VANUNU-who I feel is the key to help free Gaza and Palestine:

Mystical Christmas Eves and why I am 'flaming' Fleming Read more...

On the eve of New Years Eve 2010, I am still petitioning them and offering you this reflection from 20 March 2009:

The following is but an excerpt from an email VMJC: Mordechai Vanunu, wrote on March 20, 2009:

VANUNU MARTYR:
DESTROYING HUGE SPY GAME
NOBEL LETTER
BOMBS BY LETTERS
BOMBS BY WORDS
FREEDOM OF SPEECH


Salvador Dali's Christ of St. John of the Cross, 1951.

Vanunu often times writes in third person and cryptically. The J C. stands for John Crossman, the name Vanunu chose when he was baptized at St. John of the Cross Church in Sydney, Australia, just a few weeks prior to being kidnapped by the Mossad and enduring eighteen years in an Israeli jail; and as of April 21, 2009 five more denied the right to leave Israel and denied the right to speak to non-Israeli citizens.

In 1986, Vanunu was convicted of treason and espionage, but what he really did was tell the truth-in words backed up with two rolls of film that proved Israel had already manufactured upwards of 200 nuclear warheads by 1985.

A few days before Vanunu was lured from London to Rome, where he was clubbed, drugged and kidnapped by the Mossad, he spent three days being interrogated by Nuclear Physicist, Frank Barnaby.

Barnaby had been employed by the London Sunday Times to review the 57 photos Vanunu had obtained at various restricted locations in the Dimona.

Barnaby also went to Jerusalem to provide expert testimony at Vanunu's closed door trial.

Barnaby testified, "I found the fact that Vanunu was able to smuggle a camera and films into and out of Dimona and photograph highly sensitive areas in the establishment astonishing.

"I very vigorously cross-examined Vanunu, relentlessly asking the same questions in a number of different ways and at different times...I found Vanunu very straightforward about his motives for violating Israel's secrecy laws he explained to me that he believed that both the Israeli and the world public had the right to know about the information he passed on. He seemed to me to be acting ideologically.

"Israel's political leaders have, he said, consistently lied about Israel's nuclear-weapons programme and he found this unacceptable in a democracy.

"The knowledge that Vanunu had about Isreal's nuclear weapons, about the operations at Dimona, and about security at Dimona could not be of any use to anyone today.

"He left Dimona in October 1985 and the design of today's Israeli nuclear weapons will have been considerably changed since then"Modern nuclear weapons bear little relationship to those of the mid-1980."[1]
