Today, the Israeli High Court of Justice rejected Mordechai Vanunu's petition to cancel the injunction forbidding him from leaving Israel. I responded via the postal service and the World Wide Web to:

Justices Eliezer Rivlin, Elyakim Rubinstein and Hanan Metzer

Jerusalem, Israel

October 6, 2011

Dear Justices Eliezer Rivlin, Elyakim Rubinstein and Hanan Metzer,

Before this letter reaches you, this information will have been published first and disseminated from my website http://wearewideawake.org/ .

I write you because Israel continues to claim "that Vanunu is still considered a real danger to the security of Israel, as he holds state secrets that have not been published, which he said in the past he would reveal as soon as the opportunity presented itself." [1]

 

I write you because in your decision that continues to deny the "petitioner" Mordechai Vanunu his right to leave Israel you wrote: "The court cannot be blindfolded and ignore what is happening in front of its eyes. The petitioner chose a unique path...in fighting against Israel's policies". [Ibid]

 

The prosecution charged that Vanunu should not be allowed the right to leave Israel for he posed "a real danger to the security of Israel" and the Judges stressed Vanunu had contacts with unspecified "foreign elements." [Ibid]

I write you to inform you that I was not a reporter when I met Vanunu in 2005, but I became one when we began a series of interviews that culminated in the enclosed book,  BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu's FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010
