Yesterday, Israel's Nuclear Whistle Blower, Mordechai Vanunu wrote: “May 28 Th'-2013. The new Interior minister Renew the restriction not to leave the country for one more year now the 10 Th' year since my release 2004-2014. So as I said before, israel with 200 Atomic weapons Hydrogen, Neutron bombs, the only thing they can do is to arrest Vanunu, 1986-2013. This is a real Bullshit state. Freedom Now!” Around the same time that Vanunu wrote the above, I in my role as the Primary Administrator of the Facebook Cause, Free Mordechai Vanunu, wrote to notify the over 11,500 Members:“Because of particular people who managed to DELETE this Cause from Facebook Searches for "MORDECHAI VANUNU" and who also managed to hack both of this Administrators MAC's this Cause MUST be renamed and details WHY will soon follow!” Many months ago this Cause was deleted from all Facebook searches for “Mordechai Vanunu” but as the Cause did show up on the first page of a Google Search I was curious but not too concerned as I wrongly assumed it was just a cyber glitch.Last week I learned that Causes.com and Facebook are two separate companies and yesterday I phoned Facebook Support and asked them to investigate why the Cause disappeared from Facebook searches.
I learned it had been permanently deleted and will never again show up on Facebook under the title: FREE Mordechai Vanunu.I then learned both my MAC’s had been infiltrated by foreign IP addresses. Two hours and six hundred dollars later, my MAC’s were secured and I invited the Cause Members to help rename the Cause because nobody has RIGHTS unless they seize them and we who care about future generations must fight for our RIGHTS as citizens of the World to live in a NUCLEAR FREE WORLD;And as Anti-nuclear civil resistance is the RIGHT of every citizen of the world, for the nuclear threat attacks every core concept of human rights and "calls for urgent and universal action for its prevention. If it is a basic human right to be free of threat or violence, if the right to life is a basic human right, if the protection of children and future generations is a basic human duty, international law must unhesitatingly recognize that the right to non violent resistance activities for the prevention of such an international crime is basic to human dignity."- Judge Weeramantry, "The Trident and International Law, Scotland's Obligations" Feb. 3, 2009.
One suggestion that came to me to rename the Cause: FREE Mordechai Vanunu was “FIGHT for a Nuclear FREE World” but a better one came my way shortly after posting this article and the Cause has now been renamed: TNT: Tell Nuclear TruthsVanunu was the first to IMAGINE and take action in the fight for a Nuclear Free World in 1986 and ever since Israel has tried to hide the facts that they are the only Nuclear power in the Middle East.
And today in America, three nonviolent nuclear resisters are in prison facing a twenty-year sentence because they too imagined a Nuclear Free World and took action fueled by their faith in the NONVIOLENT Jesus.LEARN MORE about Sister Megan Rice, Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed
In 2005 during my first of seven trips to both sides of The Wall in Israel Palestine, Vanunu and I began a series of interviews while I was researching for my first historical fiction.My first two questions and Vanunu's answers here:I became a reporter after Vanunu told me: “Did you know that President Kennedy tried to stop Israel from building atomic weapons? In 1963, he forced Prime Minister Ben Guirion to admit the Dimona was not a textile plant, as the sign outside proclaimed, but a nuclear plant. The Prime Minister said, ‘The nuclear reactor is only for peace.’
“Kennedy insisted on an open internal inspection. He wrote letters demanding that Ben Guirion open up the Dimona for inspection. “The French were responsible for the actual building of the Dimona. The Germans gave the money; they were feeling guilty for the Holocaust, and tried to pay their way out. Everything inside was written in French, when I was there, almost twenty years ago. Back then, the Dimona descended seven floors underground.
“In 1955, Perez and Guirion met with the French to agree they would get a nuclear reactor if they fought against Egypt to control the Sinai and Suez Canal. That was the war of 1956. Eisenhower demanded that Israel leave the Sinai, but the reactor plant deal continued on.
“When Johnson became president, he made an agreement with Israel that two senators would come every year to inspect. Before the senators would visit, the Israelis would build a wall to block the underground elevators and stairways. From 1963 to ’69, the senators came, but they never knew about the wall that hid the rest of the Dimona from them. “Nixon stopped the inspections and agreed to ignore the situation. As a result, Israel increased production. In 1986, there were over two hundred bombs. Today, they may have enough plutonium for ten bombs a year.”
I did not know any of that until he told me and fueled by my faith in the NONVIOLENT Jesus, I vowed aloud to Vanunu that I would tell his story UNTIL Israel allows him to fade away into the world instead of continuing to make headlines—even if I am the only one who writes them because:The International Court of Justice found that the destructive power of nuclear weapons cannot be contained in either space or time, and that they carry the potential to destroy all civilization and the entire ecosystem of the planet,Whereas, Governments have obligations and People have rights, people of the World must exercise the right to peacefully resist the nuclear threat; attacking as it does every core concept of human rights,
Whereas it is a basic human right to be free of threat or violence, and it is the duty of adults to protect children and future generations, people of the World must unequivocally demand the leaders of the World to pursue a nuclear free world, clean up the chemical and radioactive contamination they have produced and FREE all Nuclear Resisters.
America remains the only nation in the world to unleash Nuclear Weapons and Israel remains the only state in the Middle East with Nuclear Weapons and because USA Corporate Media has failed to address US policies that collude and sustain Israel's Nuclear Deceptions which are at the root of much Middle East instability and terrorism, I will continue to fight this fight and so; I will once again email the corporate media reps who requested a copy of my fourth book but who have yet to write a word about Vanunu’s wait for liberty and US policies that collude in Israel’s Nuclear Ambiguity/DECEPTIONS.I won’t hold my breath that they will respond, but I know that all I can do is follow my conscience and my conscience calls me to do something to try to avert a nuclear holocaust.LEARN MORE:
