On June 16, 2008, the European Union nations agreed on the need for a new round of stronger sanctions against Iran to discourage Tehran from developing nuclear weapons. At a press conference, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and President Bush sent a strong message to Iran that it must end its pursuit of nuclear weapons or face a tougher international response.

The U.S. and some of its allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons. Iran denies it, saying its atomic program is aimed at using nuclear reactors to generate electricity.

President Bush and French President Nicolas Sarkozy have now jointly warned Tehran again against proceeding toward a nuclear bomb. The plan is but a refreshed version of a 2006 package that Iran ignored. Both Bush and Sarkozy agreed that "If Iran gets a nuclear bomb that is totally unacceptable. Our position will not change." [1]

Both did agree that Iran is entitled to civilian nuclear power and they spoke in unity that the people of Iran have a right to better representation by a government that Bush claims is "creating the deprivation inside Iran."[IBID]

What follows is a compilation of email replies from Vanunu regarding Iran, democracy, etc. [with slight editing; punctuation, spelling, grammar].

Vanunu wrote:

They all have their own double standards.

No one should ignore the fact that Atomic weapons are in Israel and that it was France most especially who helped build the Dimona reactor in 1960.

No one should forget that France was the first state to start nuclear weapons proliferation in secret, not Iran.

The world's problem with Iran is the obligation to help the people of Iran to have freedom and democracy; free from a dictator regime.

The problem is not nuclear weapons in Iran but the need for freedom for all the people.

I am not at all supporting this Ayatollahs regime in Iran. This regime should be ended and replaced by freedom and democracy for all Iran people.

The same goes for Israel too, which is only a democracy if you are a Jew. The Israeli problem is the Jewish apartheid regime.

No nuclear weapons program is a true deterrent or safeguard mechanism for security because Atomic weapons can only bring destruction. Atomic weapons are a mechanism of self destruction.

How can Israel, the only country in the Middle East known to have a nuclear weapons program expects all others not to even have peaceful nuclear energy programs?

Since Israel has the Bombs, then they can not speak with credibility about stopping all the Middle East states from having at least Nuclear Energy, Nuclear Science and Technology.
