Mordechai Vanunu was the whistle-blower who confirmed the existence of the rogue illegal nuclear weapons program of Israel. He shared pictures of the nuclear warheads at the rogue nuclear facility in Dimona, Israel.

Mordechai Vanunu took the pictures of the warheads at the Dimona Nuclear Site to many journalists and newspapers. One of the people he approached with the pictures was Robert Maxwell's son. He also tried to give the pictures to one of Robert Maxwell's newspapers, and Maxwell proceeded to tip off the Mossad to what Vanunu was doing. In (year), Mossad agents, tipped off by Robert Maxwell lured him into a honey trap in Italy. After falling into the trap, he was captured by the Israelis and imprisoned in Israel in solitary confinement for eleven years. After the eleven year stint in solitary confinement in Israel, he began promoting Michael Collins Piper's book "Final Judgment". For this, he was again imprisoned.

The newspaper reported that Mordechai Vanunu, then recently released from 18 years in prison for exposing Israel's atomic weapons program, had stated that supporters of Israel's nuclear weapons program were involved in the John F Kennedy Assassination, as JFK's had been trying to stop the Israeli Nuclear Weapons Program. The Israeli government denied Vanunu's allegations, but what he said received attention in newspapers, with the notable exception of the United States
