Heroes, Muses and the Saga of Mordechai Vanunu
In 2008, 125 written work entries were submitted to the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation's Expressions of Nakba: Competition and Gallery. This Chapter from KEEP HOPE ALIVE placed first in Honorable Mention:
Our shelves are empty but
“Remember, Remember the 5th of November. I suddenly had this feeling that everything is connected. Perfectly laid out in front of me and we are all a part of it and trapped by it. IDEAS are bulletproof.”
I began the editing of my fourth book on the 5th of November 2012-but I began writing it after my first of 7 trips to both sides of The Wall in Israel Palestine.
I ended my third book - BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu's FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010 -with the line:
“And the bottom line for me is that experience is not just what happens to you, but what you do with it and que sera sera.”
IF only Israel had been just and merciful in 2004, ’05, ’06, ’07, ’08, ’09, ’10, ’11, or 2012; and allowed Vanunu his right to leave Israel, I IMAGINE that my fourth book would NOT be titled, Vanunu's WAIT for LIBERTY, Remembering the USS LIBERTY and My Life as a candidate of Conscience for US HOUSE 2012.
But it is what it is, and if all goes as planned, the fourth in my series will be available on KINDLE, NOOK, IPAD/Phone and print on demand by the end of 2012.
