He's a traitor. He got off easy. Now if you want a poster child for police state treatment, look up Mordechai Vanunu.
I did look up Vanunu and this is what I found - now there is a true traitor to his country:
Mordechai Vanunu seeks the destruction of Israel. In that he is not alone, since he is a convert to the Anglican branch of Christianity, a church whose clergy preach anti-Jewish hate with a vehemence that would do justice to the Dark Ages. For the British Jewish community this means that Jewish cemeteries are regularly vandalized, Jews are beaten on the streets and synagogues are burnt down. Anglicans teach that God hates all Jews because all Jews are Christ killers.
Vanunu sold Israels atomic secrets to a British hate sheet also known as The Sunday Times in 1986. That so-called newspaper is a notorious anti-Jewish tabloid which spreads the same old canards against us, the Jewish people, that have been around these 2,000 years and have led to so much persecution, hate and bloodshed (Jews bake matzohs with the blood of Christian children, Jews poison the drinking supply, Jews rule the world etc.).
Vanunu had gone to Australia in 1986, where he unveiled to a local journalist that he had in his possession numerous photographs of the Dimona nuclear reactor, where he had been a technician for nine years. The Sunday Times richly rewarded Vanunu for his story. With the money he flew to Rome, Italy, to meet a woman he had first seen in London. Arrived in Rome, this American tourist lured him to the outskirts of the city, where she said her sister had an apartment. On entering the flat, Israeli agents, of whom Cindy was one, overpowered Vanunu, and brought him by ship to Israel, where he was imprisoned for treason eighteen years, ending in May of 2004.
It may be recalled that the American traitors such as Aldrich Ames were given life terms for their treason.
On his conditional release from prison, Vanunu complained to the media sharks that he could not leave Israel. This condition for his release is of course necessary because Vanunu may have more secrets to tell his bigot supporters. More important is that Vanunu has announced that he would like to travel in the Arab countries, in Europe and in the U.S. and campaign for the destruction of Israel. It is noteworthy that Vanunu became an anti-Israel propagandist when he studied philosophy with Professor Evron Pollakov at Ben Gurion University. Believe it or not, the liberal academic establishment in Israel is as anti-Jewish as they are here.
Vanunu is now the darling of the anti-Jewish haters in Europe and in the U.S. All of these haters scream that Israel should divest itself of its nuclear deterrent, knowing full well that without the nuclear bomb Israel would be overwhelmed by its 280 million Arab neighbors and utterly destroyed. Even that great appeaser Shimon Peres told a CNN interviewer For us the issue (atomic deterrent) is really to be or not to be.
