When will they learn?

Israel’s persecution of nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu continues. Haaretz reports:

Mordechai Vanunu was arrested by Border Policemen on Friday during an inspection of a bus at the A-Ram checkpoint north of Jerusalem.

“Vanunu, who was a passenger on a bus en route to Jerusalem, is suspected of violating the terms of his parole.

“Jerusalem police officials said that authorities plan on transferring Vanunu – who had pledged to notify law enforcement anytime he plans on leaving the city – to the International Crimes Unit.”

The man serves 18 years in prison, many in solitary confinement, and the Jewish state still argues he’s a security risk. Vanunu is a fierce critic of Israel and its treatment of the Palestinians. He’s one of the great heroes of the 20th century.
