How this will help

Israel's Nuclear Whistle Blower was born in Morocco and he has requested asylum from many states ever since he emerged from 18 years [most all in solitary confinement] in a windowless tomb...

Israel's Nuclear Whistle Blower was born in Morocco and he has requested asylum from many states ever since he emerged from 18 years [most all in solitary confinement] in a windowless tomb sized cell on 21 April 2004.

Israel has claimed they can not allow Vanunu the right to leave Israel because he "still has a secret" about their WMD Facility that he has not set foot into since 1985.

The Establishment of Israel's very statehood was contingent upon upholding the UN UNIVERSAL DECLARATION of HUMAN RIGHTS and ALL Member States are obligated to hold ALL other Member States to it. 

Article 19 enshrines: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."

Article 13 affirms: "Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state. Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country."

People of conscience and ALL Member States of the  UN UNIVERSAL DECLARATION of HUMAN RIGHTS  must join Vanunu who on July 13th wrote: "This is what you can do in my case,write to U.N.Human Rights Chief,and ask your Facebook cause supporters to write,to ask her to demand from israel to respect my Human Rights,freedom of speech and Freedom of Movements.VMJC"

In 1986, Israel kidnapped Mordechai Vanunu from Rome and convicted him of treason and espionage after a closed door trial.

Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights states: "No one shall he subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention", including abduction of a person by agents of one state to another state.

According to Section 99 of the Israeli Penal Code, treason is defined as "an act calculated to assist (an enemy) in time of war...delivering information with the intention that it fall into the hands of the enemy." 

Section 113 defines aggravated espionage as "deliver(ing) any secret information without being authorized to do so and with intent to impair the security of the state" and a sub-clause provides for a penalty of seven years for the unauthorized collection, preparation, recording or holding of secret information; if this is done with intent to impair the security of the state and then, the penalty is increased to 15 years.

Vanunu got 18 years in jail and for the last 10 years he has been under 24/7 surveillance.

Vanunu was also rendered defenseless when the court ruled that his motivations were not ideological and they refused to allow Vanunu's own statements regarding his intentions to be considered in his defense.

January 25, 2006, was the first day of Vanunu's Freedom of Speech Trial which concluded in 2010 with another 78 days in solitary confinement essentially for speaking to foreign media in 2004!

On February 22, 2006, it was revealed in Court that Israel had gotten Microsoft to hand over all the details of Vanunu's Hotmail account before a court order had been obtained by eluding that he was being charged for espionage.

Vanunu wrote, "Microsoft obeyed the orders and gave them all the details three months before I was arrested and my computers were confiscated.

"It is strange to ask Microsoft to give this information before obtaining the court order to listen to my private conversations. It means they wanted to go through my emails in secret, or maybe, with the help of the secret services, the Shaback, Mossad.

"Sfard [Vanunu's attorney] proved that the police had misled the judges who gave the orders to arrest me: to search my room, to go through my email, to confiscate my computers and that they misled Microsoft to believe they are helping in a case of espionage.

"The State came to the court with two special secret Government orders; Hisaion..."

Hisaion documents or information are deemed confidential by the government and kept from the court, the defendant, and lawyers.

Vanunu's secretly taped police interrogations, his 2004 Christmas Eve arrest for "attempting to leave the country" when he tried to celebrate his first Christmas out of prison at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem and the confiscation of his private property by thirty Israeli Forces that stormed into his room at St. George's Cathedral in 2004, had all "been done under the false and misleading statements to the courts of 'suspicion of espionage', and yet they are not charging me with spy crimes and the fact is that I have not committed any crimes."-Mordechai Vanunu
