Five months ago over a thousand journalists covered the drama in the Gaza. Not one explored the other side of The Wall or interviewed Mordecahi Vanunu, a Christian held captive in Jerusalem who stands trial beginning January 25, 2006 because he exercised the inalienable right to free speech.
Jerusalem, Israel (PRWEB) January 25, 2006 — Begins the most recent trial of Mordechai Vanunu, a Christian in Jerusalem fighting for the inalienable right to free speech.
Five months ago over a thousand journalists covered the drama in the Gaza. Not one explored the building of more illegal settlements, OR the continuing land and water grab of The Wall and its effects on the Palestinian economy OR interviewed Mordecahi Vanunu, a Christian held captive in Jerusalem.
After enduring 18 years in jail for blowing the whistle on Israel’s underground WMD program in the Negev, Vanunu was released April 2004 under the draconian restrictions of the Emergency Defense Regulations which were implemented first by Britain against Palestinians and Jews after World War II.
Vanunu, a Moroccan secular Jew atheist, was baptized a Christian just days before being kidnapped, clubbed, drugged , bound and thrown onto an Israeli cargo ship leaving Rome for home by the Mossad. After a closed door trial and 18 years in jail he has lived in the guest house at St Georges Cathedral in Jerusalem forbidden to leave Israel.
