When Vanunu acted on conscience 27 years ago, he also alerted Israel's SECURITY forces to the lax SECURITY at Dimona.
Last July in America, 3 anti-nuclear activists acted on conscience when they trespassed into Y12-which had been called the Fort Knox of Uranium- to raise awareness of the fallacy of national SECURITY by WMD!
Their trial concluded yesterday and they face up to 20 years behind bars for following their conscience and faith in the nonviolent Jesus.
In 1987, Vanunu wrote from prison:
"No government, not even the most democratic, can force us to live under this threat. No state in the world can offer any kind of security against this menace of a nuclear holocaust, or guarantee to prevent it…
"When governments develop nuclear weapons they are violating the basic rights of their citizens, the basic right not to live under constant threat of annihilation."
In 2005, Vanunu told me:
"Atomic weapons are holocaust weapons. Christians should be the first people against them.
"The only way to peace is peace; the only way is nonviolence. The only answer to Israeli nuclear weapons, their aggression, occupation and oppression, and the wall and refugee camps is to answer them with truth and a peaceful voice.
"When I became the spy for the world, I did it all for the people of the world.
"If governments do not report the truth, and if the media does not report the truth, then all we can do is follow our consciences. Daniel Ellsberg did, the woman from Enron did, and I did. The United States needs to wake up and see the truth that Israel is not a democracy, unless you are a Jew. Israel is the only country in the Middle East where America can right now find WMDs. America can also find where basic human rights have been denied Christians: right here in Israel."
