During my first of seven trips to Israel Palestine in 2005, I was in the midst of writing my first book, KEEP HOPE ALIVE. If all goes as planned I will be in Iran this November researching for my fourth book, What YOU were doing when my gods were Beatles and Dylan.

My third book, BEYOND NUCLEAR: Some of my Experiences of Mordechai Vanunu and the Holy Land: 2005-2010 would not, could not have been written without stumbling into a meeting with Mordechai Vanunu, who became my muse, that led me to become a reporter who stumbled into documenting Vanunu's FREEDOM of SPEECH TRIAL, since it began on January 25, 2006, which was just a few weeks before Vanunu spoke about his first years in solitary confinement:

Mordechai Vanunu Addresses ...



It was while researching for my first book-KEEP HOPE ALIVE- in 2004, that I stumbled upon Mordechai Vanunu's incredible story and wrote him into a chapter; and then I crossed paths with him a few months after.

In the Chapter: "Thanksgiving Eve, 1987" from KEEP HOPE ALIVE, Dr. Jake Hunter, a fictional character says:


"I have yet to read or heard a word from the American press about Vanunu who had worked in a very compartmentalized position in the secret underground Dimona nuclear research center in the Negev. The nuclear plant had a sign outside claiming it was a Textile factory and it seems that when Vanunu finally realized he was involved in the horrific work of manufacturing weapons of mass destruction, he shot two rolls of film inside of the restricted areas. Seems security was very lax and this low level tech was able to obtain the keys in the shower room that opened the doors to what Israel has not admitted to.

"Vanunu quit the job and leaves Israel and carried around the undeveloped film for nearly a year as he traveled throughout Europe. He ended up in Sydney, Australia and converted to Christianity. A few weeks after he shared his story with a British reporter and Vanunu and the reporter returned to London. While the London Sunday Times was verifying his story, Vanunu mysteriously disappeared. The photos proved the fact that Israel had become a major nuclear power, but not a word has been heard from my government or press!

"The Sunday Times reports this incredible news that Israel's underground plutonium plant has material for two hundred nuclear warheads of advanced design, but not a word have I read about it or heard from the US media! It makes me wonder about all the iron curtains the media and government have raised as a shield from the truth."

After five years of petitioning the Israeli government, I received a reply on July 29, 2010:
