The religiously fundamentalist Zionist Rabbi David Nesenoff, of “The Jewish Star” who turned his camera on Ms Helen Thomas just over a year ago as if it were a “jackknife” and she shot back with righteous truth, that lead to her “firing” NOT retiring:  Read more…

Will be speaking out for the release of Pollard at the New York Israel Day Concert/Rally “For the Sake of Jerusalem” “come rain or shine” on 5 June as they celebrate a Six Day War that resulted in an ongoing 44 years of Military Occupation of the indigenous Palestinians.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all [people] are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights…that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among [people] deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; and, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the RIGHT of the people to ALTER or to ABOLISH it.” -July 4, 1776, The Declaration of Independence.

“I’m sick and tired of hearing things from uptight short sided narrow minded hypocrites all I want is the truth, just give me some truth. I’ve had enough of reading things by neurotic psychotic pigheaded politicians all I want is the truth, just give me some truth…How do you sleep at night?”-John Lennon





On 18 September 2004, in London, Yoko Ono awarded Mordechai Vanunu a peace prize founded in memory of and in the spirit of John Lennon’s “Give Me Some Truth” released in 1971.

In 2004, Ono was quoted by Reuters that Vanunu was honored as a “people who have spoken out for the benefit of the human race by overcoming extreme personal difficulties and, in doing so, have allowed the truth to prevail. Hopefully [Vanunu] can come and receive the award himself. He did complete his sentence, it’s not as though he’s a criminal. The point is that it’s another statement, a statement that the whole world can share and think about. People power is stronger than the power of institutions.”

Recall again, Ms Helen Thomas’ first and last question to President Obama: Helen Thomas on her one question for Obama

Obama evaded the truth, but he, every member of Congress and the Media who remained mute could easily learn what the world knew in October 1986, when London’s The Sunday Times published a front page story with Vanunu’s testimony and many of the 56 photos he shot in top secret locations inside of Israel’s 7 story underground WMD Facility.

Nobody but the Israeli’s know how many more floors underground they have gone since Vanunu was the first and last to dare to speak out about the Dimona:

During my 20 May 2011 conversation with Ms Helen Thomas, she also said:

“Why do we call them leaders?

“Leaders are suppose to do the right thing.

“We should back up the president when he does the right thing and drop him when he doesn’t.”

In his Farewell Address, George Washington warned US:

“Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all…and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave…a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils.”

In 1987, Mordechai Vanunu, wrote from Ashkelon 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.

“A state that lives in fear of destruction must not threaten the whole world with annihilation.

“Any country, which manufactures and stocks nuclear weapons, is first of all endangering its own citizens. This is why the citizens must confront their government and warn it that it has no right to expose them to this danger. Because, in effect, the citizens are being held hostage by their own government, just as if they have been hijacked and deprived of their freedom and threatened.

“When governments develop nuclear weapons without the consent of their citizens – and this is true in most cases – they are violating the basic rights of their citizens, the basic right not to live under constant threat of annihilation…Is any government qualified and authorized to produce such weapons?

In April 1999, thirty-six members of the House of Representatives signed a letter calling for Vanunu’s release from prison because they believed “we have a duty to stand up for men and women like Mordechai Vanunu who dare to articulate a brighter vision for humanity.”

President Clinton responded with a public statement expressing concern for Vanunu and the need for Israel and other non-parties to the Non-Proliferation Treaty to adhere to it and accept IAEA safeguards, but ever since the silence from the American Government has been deafening!

Israel sent Vanunu back to solitary for 78 days in 2010, essentially for speaking to foreign media in 2004!

To this day, Vanunu has been under 25 years of 24/7 surveillance under the claim of “SECURITY!”

But all he did was tell The Truth.

On 5 May 2011, Vanunu wrote:

On 5 April 2009, President Obama stood on the world stage in Prague amongst thousands of flag-waving Czechs and spoke of good humor, home town Chicago, the will of the people over tanks and guns, old conflicts, revolution, moral leadership as the most powerful weapon, iron curtains that fell and the state of 21st century nuclear weapons. An excerpt:

“We are here today because enough people ignored the voices who told them that the world could not change. We’re here today because of the courage of those who stood up and took risks to say that freedom is a right for all people, no matter what side of a wall they live on, and no matter what they look like. We are here today because the simple and principled pursuit of liberty and opportunity shamed those who relied on the power of tanks and arms to put down the will of a people.

“Some argue that the spread of these weapons cannot be stopped, cannot be checked -– that we are destined to live in a world where more nations and more people possess the ultimate tools of destruction. Such fatalism is a deadly adversary, for if we believe that the spread of nuclear weapons is inevitable, then in some way we are admitting to ourselves that the use of nuclear weapons is inevitable.

“As the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon, the United States has a moral responsibility to act…It will take patience and persistence. But now we, too, must ignore the voices who tell us that the world cannot change. We have to insist, Yes, we can.

“Words must mean something.

“There is violence and injustice in our world that must be confronted. We must confront it by standing together as free nations, as free people. I know that a call to arms can stir the souls of men and women more than a call to lay them down. But that is why the voices for peace and progress must be raised together.
“Human destiny will be what we make of it…Let us honor our past by reaching for a better future. Let us bridge our divisions, build upon our hopes, and accept our responsibility to leave this world more prosperous and more peaceful than we found it. Together we can do it.

“Words must mean something.”

 

When people hold politicians to their word, they will find the political will; IF they want to remain in power!

Israel’s very statehood was contingent upon upholding the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS.

As a Member State, America is responsible to hold ALL other Member States to it:
