I have no sympathy for Mordechai Vanunu. He knows the rules. As noted even the prosecution is shocked by the length of the punishment, which raises the question of whether they should have bothered to raise the issue. "The order stemmed from the fact that the accused had hoarded in his memory classified information that has not been released, and the release of which could harm the security interests of Israel." - Haaretz Oh, that information about those, ah, things, that, er, may or may not exist? That secret is out folks. After all these years it is very doubtful Vanunu has information which actually could harm Israel. If he does, and he did not release it when he was leaking for profit, then perhaps he is not a real threat at all. My advice to Mordachai Vanunu, shut up and be a good boy.
