Israel Denies Vanunu's FREEDOM Again

The news of Israel's decision regarding Vanunu's freedom coincides with the release of “BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu's FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010” by Eileen Fleming.

(CLERMONT, Fla.) - Today, October 11, 2010, at 1:00 p.m., Israeli nuclear weapons Whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu returned to the Supreme Court, seeking to rescind the restrictions that have denied him the right to leave Israel and speak to foreigners.

Israel DENIED his appeal.

The news of Israel's decision regarding Vanunu's freedom coincides with the release of “BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu's FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010” by Eileen Fleming.

The new book chronicles the Whistleblower of Israel’s WMD Program, Mordechai Vanunu’s Freedom of Speech Trial and how an American novelist became the reporter who followed it.

“BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu's FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010” by Eileen Fleming also documents the Whistle Blower of Israel’s weapons of mass destruction program's childhood in Morocco, multiple crises of faith, 18 years in jail, and 6 ½ years under restrictions that have denied him the right to leave Israel and speak to foreigners.

In 1985, Vanunu shot two rolls of film in top-secret locations in the Dimona, Israel’s seven-story underground nuclear weapons facility in the Negev and he served 18 years in jail for treason and espionage.

According to Fleming, “I was not a reporter when I met Vanunu in June 2005, but I was inspired to become one to tell his story and my experiences with hundreds of nonviolent Palestinian, Israeli and international human rights activists who are seeking security for Israel through justice for Palestine: an end to the military occupation.”

On January 25, 2006, Vanunu’s freedom of speech trial began for speaking to foreign media in 2004. In 2010, he served a sentence of 78 days in solitary confinement.

Fleming ended his saga with Vanunu waiting in Tel Aviv, for Israel to release him to full freedom.

On October 4, 2010, the International League for Human Rights-FIDH/AEDH Germany, announced Vanunu was awarded the 2010 Carl-von-Ossietzky-Medal and an international campaign was launched to assure he be at the Award Ceremony, in Berlin on December 12, 2010.

Vanunu's situation is lamented by Fleming and many other activists worldwide, who have been urging a resolution to his endless political harassment for years.

As much as it may be news to western readers that Israel has maintained a deadly nuclear weapons program consisting of hundreds of deadly warheads pointed at its perceived enemies for decades, it is no secret.

Vanunu's revelation of Israel's nuclear warheads, aka 'WMD's'... was widely publicized in Europe and the Middle east after Vanunu visited London in 1986 with the rolls of film documenting his claims.
