Vanunu on the Wall and peace
Vanunu's Message to Hillary Clinton re: The Apartheid Wall
Mordecai Vanunu, a Mizrahi Jew, spent 18 yrs in an Israeli prison, much of that in solitary confinement, for warning the world about Israel’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD), that is, its nuclear weapons program.
"The only way to peace is peace; the only way is non-violence. The only answer to Israeli nuclear weapons, their aggression, occupation and oppression, the wall and refugee camps is to answer them with truth and a peace-full 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, if media does not report the truth, all we can do is follow our conscience... 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 WMD's. America can also find where basic human rights have been denied Christians, right here in Israel."
