Israeli Court Says Nuclear Hero Mordechai Vanunu Must Remain a Virtual PrisonerSalem-News.com
Media has failed to seek and report the truth about Israel’s nuclear deceptions and Vanunu’s nearly 10-year struggle for his right to be free from Israel.
(LONDON Redress News & Analysis) - As we predicted, Israel’s Supreme Court has dismissed a request by nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu to leave Israel.
Vanunu, who served 18 years in prison for telling the world the truth about Israel’s nuclear secrets, was released from prison in 2004, but he is prohibited from leaving the apartheid state, visiting the occupied West Bank or approaching foreign embassies and speaking with foreign nationals. He also is not permitted to communicate with others online.
On 25 December Vanunu told a Supreme Court hearing that he wanted to leave the supremacist Jewish state. “I don’t want to live in Israel,” he said, adding that he is often subjected to harassment by the Israeli public whenever he is recognized.
However, on 29 December Supreme Court Justice Asher Grunis denied Vanunu’s appeal, stating:
Reacting to the ruling, Vanunu wrote: “No justice in Israel democracy. The Supreme Court, by its Chief Justice Grunis, rejected my appeal to be free from Israel state, after 27 years in Israel prison.”
He told the writer Eileen Fleming: “All the secrets I had were published in 1989 in an important book, by [Nuclear Physicist] Frank Barnaby, The Invisible Bomb: Nuclear Arms Race in the Middle East.
In 1986, Barnaby was hired by the the Sunday Times to vet Vanunu’s story and he testified at Vanunu’s closed door trial:
Keeping Vanunu in chains in the Jews-only state, prohibited from travelling or talking to foreigners, has nothing to do with Israel’ security. It is a about vengeance, pure and simple – Old Testament style.
So, please help keep Vanunu’s case alive by signing this petition, calling on the media to seek and report the truth about Israel’s nuclear deceptions and Vanunu’s nearly 10-year struggle for his right to be free from Israel.
