MY PHOTOS OF DIMONA – 1985

These are a few of the pictures I took in late 1985, just before I left work at the Dimona reactor. There were about 60 pictures in all. -vmjc

[EDITOR’S NOTE:  Vanunu’s photo site disappeared, but these pics should last.]

  2. I’m impressed of all the risks Vanunu was taking to warn the world of what is going on in Israel. But the world is not interested and is looking the other way.
    What a shame!

  3. eugh? What doubt is that? Last I heard the Israeli press reported that the strike at
    the suspected Syrian WMD location included tactical nuclear weapons (thats why they asked US planes to join them, avoiding the dirty work). Which part of getting away with anything is hard to understand? Perhaps some people believe a nuclear apartheid state with piles of impending UN resolutions manages to front as a beacon of light with clever political manuvering alone?

  4. If in fact the photos of the Israeli nuclear facility are the genuine article Mordechai Vanunu may have invited more pain from the Israeli Government. But on the other hand should they prosecute him further this would remove any doubt what Israel is up to.

  5. Perhaps they will have an earthquake in or around Dimona… like the one that destroyed the Chinese weapons facility. :-)
