On May 24, 2010, the international press blew the doors wide open regarding President Shimon Peres’ “secret” offer to sell nuclear warheads to the South African Apartheid regime in 1975.
It was reported that PW Botha, South Africa’s defense minister asked Shimon Peres-who was then Israel’s defense minister-for nuclear warheads.
Peres offered them “in three sizes” which are understood as conventional, chemical and nuclear weapons!
The two also signed a broad-ranging agreement governing military ties between the two countries that included a clause declaring that “the very existence of this agreement” was to remain secret.
However, while researching for a book on the close relationship between the two regimes, Sasha Polakow-Suransky an American academic unearthed the evidence that the emperor/empire has no clothes.
In his just published book, The Unspoken Alliance: Israel’s secret alliance with apartheid South Africa Sasha documents that Israeli officials “formally offered to sell South Africa some of the nuclear-capable Jericho missiles in its arsenal.”
No surprise that Peres’ spokesperson responded that the report was baseless and that there were “never any negotiations” between the two countries. However, she did remain mute regarding the authenticity of the documents proving a 31 March 1975 meeting attended by South African military chief of staff, Lieutenant General RF Armstrong, who wrote a “top secret” memo laying out the benefits to South Africa in obtaining the Jericho missiles if they were fitted with nuclear weapons.
On 4 June 1975, Peres and Botha met in Zurich and by then, the Jericho project had been renamed Chalet.
The top-secret minutes of that meeting recorded that:
“Minister Botha expressed interest in a limited number of units of Chalet subject to the correct payload being available…Minister Peres said the correct payload was available in three sizes. Minister Botha expressed his appreciation.” 
Botha did not go ahead with the deal because of the cost and the fact that final approval was dependent on Israel’s prime minister.
South Africa did build its own nuclear bombs and also provided much of the yellow-cake uranium that Israel required to develop its nuclear arsenal.
The documents also confirm that former South African naval commander, Dieter Gerhardt admitted there was an agreement between Israel and South Africa called Chalet that involved an offer by the Jewish state to arm eight Jericho missiles with “special warheads” understood as atomic bombs.
“Some weeks before Peres made his offer of nuclear warheads to Botha, the two defence ministers signed a covert agreement governing the military alliance known as Secment. It was so secret that it included a denial of its own existence: ‘It is hereby expressly agreed that the very existence of this agreement… shall be secret and shall not be disclosed by either party.'” [Ibid]

On May 23, 2010, this reporter sent CNN a NEWS TIP and filed two I-Report’s in response to their limited coverage in “Israeli nuclear whistle-blower back in jail” which can be read here:
In my I-Report’s I also included this photo, which exposes Vanunu’s sense of humor:
My initial report was accepted, but when I returned an hour later to check on it, I learned it was “NOT AVAILABLE.”
Imagining a technological glitch, I re-posted it and again it was accepted.
But, within five minutes it was again rendered “NOT AVAILABLE.”
See that here:
I have been censored, deleted, deactivated before and all it ever does is get my Irish up and flaming! I also deal with my anger by writing it out of my system, as I have here:

MY CENSORSHIP from the Democratic Underground:
MY BANNING from the DAILY KOS:
But I also am a forgiving person and always seek to reconcile, so I did immediately email CNN thru their site asking them WHY did they censor/delete me?
But, as of this writing I have not yet received a reply and am not holding my breathe for one.
However, the good news is that CNN’s censorship was not swift enough; and the few moments my work appeared on their site was enough to generate this Google Web Alert for: “Vanunu Mordechai”

However, that link is a dead end that states: “This content is currently unavailable.”
A Google search of that link claims:
The lively discussion follows here:
Within days of the announcement of a record 205 nominations for 2009’s Nobel Peace Prize, [one of several prizes endowed by Swedish industrialist and dynamite inventor Alfred Nobel] perpetual nominee Mordechai Vanunu began to decline the honor in a letter to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee in Oslo:
“I am asking the committee to remove my name from the nominations…I cannot be part of a list of laureates that includes Simon Peres…Peres established and developed the atomic weapon program in Dimona in Israel…Peres was the man who ordered [my] kidnapping…he continues to oppose my freedom and release…WHAT I WANT IS FREEDOM AND ONLY FREEDOM….FREEDOM AND ONLY FREEDOM I NEED NOW.”
In 1963, when Vanunu was nine years old the Zionists came to his home town of Marrakech, Morocco and convinced his Orthodox father to abandon his general store and pack up the first seven of his eleven children for the land of milk and honey. Instead, the Vanunu’s were banished to the desert of Beesheva, an ethnically cleansed Palestinian village.
A few months later, Shimon Peres, then Israel’s Deputy Minister of Defense met with President John Kennedy, inside the White House.
Kennedy told Peres, “You know that we follow very closely the discovery of any nuclear development in the region. This could create a very dangerous situation. For this reason we monitor your nuclear effort. What could you tell me about this?”
Peres replied, “I can tell you most clearly that we will not introduce nuclear weapons to the region, and certainly we will not be the first.”
By September of 1986, Peres was convulsing over Vanunu, who had been employed as a lowly tech in his progeny; Israel’s clandestine underground nuclear weapons centre in the Negev called the Dimona.
Peres ordered the Mossad, to “Bring the son of a bitch back here.”
Peres ordered Vanunu’s kidnapping that included a clubbing, drugging and being flung upon an Israeli cargo boat back to Israel for a closed-door trial, 18 years in jail, six years under 24/7 surveillance and another three months behind bars that began 23 May 2010.
In 1985, before quitting the Dimona, Vanunu shot 56 photos of the top-secret labs and production processes that proved Israel had become a major nuclear power by stockpiling between 100 and 200 atomic bombs within the seven underground levels where plutonium production, and secret nuclear weapons were assembled without any knowledge, debate or authorization from its own citizens. Israel has yet to allow International Inspectors into the aged Dimona plant, which is leaking and endangering the health of its own citizens.
In April 2005, two months before my first of seven trips to Israel Palestine, I turned the TV on- it had last been tuned into the History channel. At that moment, they were broadcasting a show called, “Sexpionage” all about Russian female spies and one from the Mossad.
The very first clip that ran before my eyes was of Vanunu being transported to his closed-door trial. It was the few famous seconds of Vanunu’s inspired move to write upon his palm: “HIJACKED” and the Rome flight number he had been on.
That clip was followed by one of Shimon Perez in 1986, resurrecting the spirit of Machiavelli as he mendaciously claimed that Israel would never be the first in the Mid East to possess nuclear weapons.
As we live Orwell’s nightmare, Peres was the one awarded for playing a part in achieving the Oslo Declaration of Principles.
According to the preamble of the DOP, this peace was supposed to be based on mutual respect and reconciliation.
Ever since receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for his part in achieving the Oslo agreement, Peres has been most instrumental in helping to destroy the agreement.
Alfred Nobel’s intention was to reward people with a moral backbone. Nobel had hoped to create icons and examples to humankind. Annually since 1986, Vanunu has been nominated for The Nobel Peace Prize. When Bishop Tutu nominated him in 2007, Vanunu told me that he didn’t want the award if Israel refused him the liberty and freedom to go and accept it.
In April 1999, thirty-six members of the House of Representatives signed a letter calling for Vanunu’s release from prison because they believed “we have a duty to stand up for men and women like Mordechai Vanunu who dare to articulate a brighter vision for humanity.”
President Clinton responded with a public statement expressing concern for Vanunu and the need for Israel and other non-parties to the Non-Proliferation Treaty to adhere to it and accept IAEA safeguards, but ever since the silence has been deafening.
However, the times are always a’ changing, and with the revelations of Sasha Polakow-Suransky, another left to the liver of Peres has been dealt as well as exposing his connection to Niccolo Machiavelli.
Machiavelli offered the Renaissance monarchy advice designed to keep power with policies that discouraged mass political activism. Machiavelli held that political life cannot be governed by a single set of moral ethics or religious absolutes.
Machiavelli offered the monarchy excuses and rationales to enable them to sleep at night after ordering calculated acts of deception, lies, cover-ups, and ethically indefensible acts of violence upon innocent lives.
To call a politician “Machiavellian” is to say that politician excels in the politics of manipulation and deception and is driven by lust for power and Peres just might be a 21st century personification of that side of Niccola.
But Machiavelli had another side, which has been ignored, such as his concern with “republics” [states] controlled by a politically active citizenry. In his “Discourses” he emphasized that for a republic to survive, it needed to foster a spirit of patriotism and civic virtue among its citizens.
Machiavelli argued that a republic would be strengthened by the conflicts generated through open political participation and debate.
This lesson Peres-and CNN-have yet to learn, but not due to the efforts of Mordechai Vanunu and this citizen journalists-UNPAID reporter!
When Vanunu exposed Israel’s nuclear arsenal in photographs taken in 1985, he wanted to open up the dialogue on nuclear weapons as well as opening the Dimona up to international inspections.
As of this writing, Vanunu is back in jail and the Dimona remains uninspected.
This citizen journalist has tried ever since 2005 to get THE MEDIA to report on Vanunu’s ongoing misery, but Big Boy Media has ignored her!

Man who uncovered Israel’s 1975 apartheid nuke offer talks to RT
May 24, 2010 — Documents uncovered by an American academic reportedly contain the first official evidence that Israel has nuclear weapons. Britains Guardian newspaper published the declassified papers showing that back in the seventies Tel Aviv offered to sell atomic warheads to the apartheid regime in South Africa. The man who revealed the documents, Sasha Polakow-Suransky, told RT he’ll challenge anyone in the Israeli administration who refutes his findings.
