Israel's more police state than democratic. How it treats Vanunu, like-minded Israeli activists, and its 20% Arab population is Exhibit A.
Vanunu's treatment is shocking. Though out of prison, he's far from free. He can be rearrested any time for any reason or none at all. In addition, his prohibitions include:
- no contacts with foreign citizens, especially journalists;
- no phone use;
- no cell phone ownership;
- no Internet access;
- no Israeli port of entry or airport visits; and
- no citizenship revocation, letting him leave Israel.
Fleming's known him for years. She says "the longer Israel denies (him) his right to leave the state, the greater his legend will grow...."
He's already a legend in his own time. He doesn't seek fame or fortune. He only wants to live free. After what Israel put him through since 1986, he deserves that much and more.
Join others for the April 21 Global Day of Action. Support him because it's the right thing to do.
