Shimon Peres Has No Clothes and CNN Is Exposed
By Eileen Fleming
Al-Jazeerah: CCUN, May 31, 2010
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
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
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
"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:
Eileen Fleming is NOT on Facebook
since she was Deactivated:
MY CENSORSHIP from the Democratic Underground:
MY BANNING from the DAILY

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
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

... iReport welcomes a lively discussion…www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-447839
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."
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
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
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
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
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."
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
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.
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.
lesson Peres-and CNN-have yet to learn, but not due to the efforts of
Mordechai Vanunu and this citizen journalists-UNPAID reporter!
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.
journalist has tried ever since 2005 to get THE MEDIA to report on Vanunu’s
ongoing misery, but Big Boy Media has ignored her!
