Another Failure of The Media to report

WIKIPEDIA Censorship Regarding Vanunu, Israel and Human Rights

(CLERMONT, Fla.) - On Monday around 5 PM in Israel, Mordechai Vanunu, Israel's Nuclear Whistle blower reported.....

"Oct. 3, 2011. The court heard my appeal against Israel Gov' Not to leave the country, and not to meet foreigners. The Prosecutor repeat all the same arguments, against me, nothing changed. The 3 Judges will decide in few days. About canceling my Israel citizenship, the 75 days past and the Gov' did not answer the court yet. Israel system is Delaying everything. Waiting For my Freedom Now 25 years.!!!!!!!!!" vanunuvmjc

A few hours later, I edited Vanunu’s WIKI page, under “Arrests and hearings” with the quote from Vanunu’s YouTube Channel-but less than 24 hours later I learned it had been deleted as in censored by WIKIPEDIA.

I had last edited Vanunu’s WIKI page on 31 August 2011 to add an article that published Vanunu’s report on that day, but it was immediately deleted by a WIKI editor, although it has resurfaced as footnote 71:

On 31 August 2011, Vanunu wrote: "The court hearing about the restrictions, not to speak to foreigners, not to leave Israel will be on Oct' 3 [it is possible the date can be_ changed]. About canceling my Israel citizenship, we are waiting to hear from Interior minister or we will have one more court hearing."[71] I learned that it had reappeared when I returned to Vanunu’s WIKI page on October 3rd to post the following update under “Arrests and hearings” but when I returned less than 24 hours later, I learned it had been censored as in deleted by WIKI editor who claimed the direct update from Vanunu as “Inappropriate”.

I posted: 19:28, 3 October 2011 Eileen fleming (Arrests and hearings: update direct from Vanunu)

On 3 October 2011, Vanunu wrote: "The court heard my appeal against Israel Govt. Not to leave the country and not to meet foreigners. The Prosecutor repeat all the same arguments against me, nothing changed. The 3 Judges will decide in few days. About canceling my Israel citizenship; the 75 days past and the Govt. did not answer the court yet. Israel system is Delaying everything. Waiting For my Freedom Now 25 years!" [1]

The only correspondence from WIKI regarding WHY they censored Vanunu’s words came at 00:13, 4 October 2011 Bbb23 (Undid revision 453753432 by Eileen fleming (talk) - inappropriate edit from WP:SPS)

It is also now nearly 24 hours after Vanunu reported the “Israel system is delaying everything” but a Google search for NEWS on Vanunu only turns up what I posted at OpedNews yesterday:

BREAKING NEWS: Vanunu Writes about Oct. 3 appeal..

In 2003, Peter Hounam, the journalist who broke Vanunu’s story in 1986 said:

"Vanunu told the world that Israel had developed between one hundred and two hundred atomic bombs [in 1986!] and had gone on to develop neutron bombs and thermonuclear weapons. Enough to destroy the entire Middle East and nobody has done anything about it since." Over 3,400 Facebook members have joined the Cause: Free Mordechai Vanunu Get the Israeli government to set Vanunu FREE in 2011! Learn More

Its mission is:

1. Learn and Disseminate info
2. Petition your political reps to help FREE Vanunu
3. Request your Media report and report accurately!

One need not be on Facebook to do something to help FREE Vanunu Now!!!

"First they came for the communists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist…"

Then they came for those who listened to their Conscience and stood up to Big Brother but I didn't speak out; Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me……
