Israel is still a democracy and has freedom of speech. What some of you posters do not understand is part of Vanunu?s terms of his release stated that he will have no contact with foreigners or journalists. He violated the terms of his release and therefore he has to pay. If his crime was committed in any other country, he would have been given a life sentence or worse, put to death! Israel has thus treated him very generously.
