If there was an Iranian nuke scientist that did what Vanunu did and Iran treated him like Israel has and is treating Vanunu, the Israeli govt. and many of the hawks on this forum wouldve been screaming about how barbaric Iran is and how this is a crime against humanity and againt that mans human rights and all. And if you are at the moment shaking your head, then how about the way many Israelis regard Jonathan Pollard. They see him as a hero, they say he should be freed and should come to Israel and all that when HE IS A BY THE BOOK TRAITOR. Vanunu did nothing that could jepordize Israel's security, he just confirmed what the world already suspected. Furthermore, what right does Israel have to attack Iran for having a peaceful nuke program when Israel has nukes and is at war with 2 countries and an entire people, and the fact that IT has used WMDs in war in a law breaking way (cluster bombs in Lebanon among others).
