Mordechai Vanunu, Israel’s nuclear whistleblower, was jailed in 1986 for publishing photographs of Israel’s nuclear bomb factory at Dimona. Olenka Frenkiel reveals the extent of Israel’s nuclear gagging. 

Frenkiel vents frustration at the silence around this issue provoked by intimidation and fear,  “this is Israel, its supposed to be a democracy?”  Talking about the double standard of Washington inspecting Iraq for WMD, and ignoring Israel, an Israeli  commentator suggests that “we are dealing with the number one privilaged state on earth.”  As Iran is threatend with war over the nuclear issue this film is as relevent today as it was in 2003.
