Israel’s Secret Weapon

Mordechai Vanunu, Israel’s nuclear whistle blower, was jailed in 1986 for publishing photographs of Israel’s nuclear bomb factory at Dimona. Olenka Frenkiel reveals the extent of Israel’s nuclear gagging. The Sunday Times Revelations hit the press in October 1986. Vanunu has spent 17 years in jail, a11 of which were in a minute solitary confinement cell – and he has just had his appeal for parole denied. He will stay in jail until 2004, when his term is expected to end.

Sunday Times journalist Peter Hounam heard rumours in 1986 that an Israeli whistleblower was offering proof of what the world had long suspected. His revelations confirmed that Israel was building advanced nuclear weapons. After the Sunday Times published this scoop, Vanunu was kidnapped in London by Mossad agents and illegally smuggled back to Israel. He was tried in secret and convicted of treason and spying.

    I really like this one. Some of the things Israel gets away with are ridiculous.

      i agree with you,the sad thing is most americans dont understand why a lot of the world hates us and its because we support israel no matter what they do and they do evil on a regular basis!

    If Israel engages in unpopular behavior it is because she is under siege from neighbors bent on her destruction. This has been the driving force in her development since the state was founded. It is easy to criticize Israel without taking into account that she has never had the luxury of security and has had to fight for her very existence.  Israel is under threat every day from those who consider  a Jewish state an insult to Islam and would love to drive its population into the sea. What would you do to survive?

      Considering the history of the jewish people the action of Israel cast them as amongst the greatest hypocrite in human history.

      I’d live with it.

      Oh and no-where does it say in the Bible that the land that you OCCUPY belongs to Jews.

      Give me proof. It doesn’t say that at all. Just show me the passage and I will lick my wounds. One passage is all I need! Just show it!

      I know, it isn’t there. It’s self proclaimed. You do not belong there and boy do you guys have some explaining to do to God.

        JC: If you are wanting bible verses stating the land borders given to Abraham as an inheritance to his descendants (Issac, Jacob/Israel) then that’s fairly easy to find.  If you are wanting to talk along the “Laws of War” or “International Law” there is justification .  But if you are trying to prove that we are all the same descendants, meaning that Palestinians are descendants of Abraham, well the discussion will end here because you are misinformed my friend. You must dig a little deeper to understand the issue.

          We all poo through the same hole, Asher.

          We are all descendants of Africans. The world did not start with those who created religion. It started with those who were enslaved by those who created religion. Art, math, science, the written word… were all created by cultures that are considered “the bad guys.” When the Jews arrived at the place that was supposedly given to them by god, there were already civilized people living there. Those people were killed, raped, slaughtered AND enslaved by “the chosen people.” You would think that after having escaped the supposed atrocities of Pharoah and being made to wander the desert for decades after continuing to break god’s laws that these “chosen people” would have learned and embraced “Thou shalt not kill.” They didn’t. And unfortunately for some, this still stands true to this day. We would ALL do well to be better than the animals that we are afraid of and try to live in peace with one and other. Or we may continue to blame each other for the faults of our religious and government leaders, ultimately destroying each other and our loved one’s. Peace!

      If any of the countries inhabited by African people on the African continent built a nuclear facility the world governments would destroy us. The world has raped our people and land without reparations or significant apologies for past and current atrocities committed by governments and corporations alike. What real hope has been offered to the descendants of our kidnapped people forced into slavery? We had to get it together on our own! Luckily we were blessed with the the ability to persevere or our culture would have been eradicated. 
      Neo Nazi groups continue to brutally attack blacks but you don’t hear Jews trying to help us even though the Jews know what this evil can lead to. If we continue to refuse to help each other in our goals for true freedom then nations and religions will continue to act idiotically out of fear and hatred. We will all end up losing while no one takes responsibility for their actions. Hatred is a relative of fear. $$, fear and hatred combined lead to atrocities. “Killing in the name of” is dead wrong and has been and will continue to be used against the less fortunate unless all governments controlled by military minded megalomaniacs, corporate world molesters and racist/religious zealots are stripped of their power. Teach the children the truth for once and maybe we can begin a process of peace that is, long, long overdue.

    Israel’s illegitimacy is the reason for its current perils and security issues.
