Thanks Simon Wilson for reminding us about Mordechai Vanunu. I had the privilege of meeting him whilst staying at St George's in East Jerusalem in October 2005, he is a truly inspirational character, someone who believes his treatment has more to do with his conversion to Christianity than to the information he revealed, most shocking for me was the involvement of our British Secret Service in his entrapment. Whenever I meet people like Mordechai I am in awe. In awe of anyone who is prepared to sacrifice their liberty and even their life, for the future of humanity. Our politics costs us very little and the least we can do for Mordechai is to keep his story in the public eye.
