He needs our help? This has nothing to do with any fundamental concept of freedom. He violated the terms of his parole, he goes back to jail. That's how it works. Everywhere.

As it should.

So wait: you applaud the indictment of people giving secrets to Israel (see AIPAC post below) yet condemn punishment for someone who revealed Israel's secrets?

It was no cecret to anyone when Vanunu made his findings public. Israel just got pissed off that they weren't allowed to play coy with the international community anymore.

He's like Christ, appearing among Jews who mock and abuse him, but his influence and example will outlast that of his detractors.

Oh Glenn, that is truly disgusting.

Make a joke like that with Mohammed, and you'll have 10 fatwas and a couple of UN committees on your door!

At least it would be in good taste right Shab?

Or to use a better example - your own antony is like "Christ" among all them bloody shylock nosed joos.

Hell, with xmas right round the corner & easter not far off, you might as well organise & stage your very own passion play, full of all the usual blood libels. For even greater effect, you can use "bloodied matza balls" (among some of the other useful props) claiming that the blood is the blood of christian children - all part of the traditional Jewish passover feast.

And why not add some additonal ones like your classic 9/11 blood libel? An on campus passion play is a good idea considering that you've finished marking exams and have plenty of time on your hands.

What a bizarre person you are. This moron has committed the highest treason imaginable. If it were not for the fact that the Israeli legal system and its Supreme Court are among the most laudable on the planet, Mordechai would have swung years ago. Imagine if he were an Islamic national!

Highest treason imaginable? Wow aren't we getting imahinative lefty?

The man acted on his conscience. It wasn't wise, but he felt he was doign he right thing at the time. It's not like he profitted from the excercise like say, Pollard, who Comical seems to think is a national hero of Israel and should be released.

BTW. Comical. Your suggestion that Xmas and Easter being withthem blood libels, sounds somewhat like the lunatic ravings of Foxman when The Passion of Christ was being shown.

Pollard profited from what he did?

So your definiiton of "profiting" is rotting away in prison cell on a life sentence, without a chance of parole? So far he has been there for twenty years - longer than Vanunu's 18 years and still counting!

Mind you Pollard was not indicted for treason or compromising any codes, agents, or war plans.
His charge: one count of passing classified information to an ally, without intent to harm the United States.

Pollard was motivated to pass on information because the US was hiding informatonon Syrian, Iraqi, Libyan and Iranian nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare capabilities - being developed for use against Israel. not to mention information on planned terrorist
attacks against Israeli civilian targets.

All info which Israel was LEGALLY entitled according to a 1983 Memorandum of Understanding between the two countries.

What motivated Vanunu (who converted out of Judaism) - his self hatred of Israel and the Jewish people? Did he save any lives in the process or shed any new light on Israel's intentions - i.e annihliate and wipe out the Arab nations just for the sake of it and without provocation.

B/thw I never suggested that Xmas and Easter were "being with them blood libels" (whatever that means in proper English). It would just be a perfect time of the year for Condell et-al to stage a "passion play" - since historically those were times when "passion plays" and blood libels were staged. Thats all.

The fact that you dont even attempt distance yourself from Condell's comments - and on the contrary twist it into something else - speaks for itself.

His occassional "let slip" racism, anti-Semitic blood libels and conspiracy theories, only serves to prove that its not about so called "legitmate criticsm of Israel", but more about a geniune hatred of Judiasm and the Jewish people.

And the fact that Flavious Antonious (who himself occassionally lets slip his own self hatred - see his comments on anti-Semitism in the Ukraine) attracts and is a magnet for these sorts of people (or to use a better analogy - like shit to the flies), pretty much speaks for itself. Anti-Semites and racists love and are all to willing to endorse self-haters like him, because they fundamentally prove their theory that Jews are "evil and corrupt to the very core." And who better at proving this theory than a Jew himself!

Thats why you are nothing more than a tool, Flavius Dreamboat.
