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:

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
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

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

operations at Dimona, and about security at Dimona could not be of any

"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."
