At the :30 minute mark, we interview writer, author and activist Eileen Fleming about her writings and how she became focused on Middle East issues and Justice for Palestine. Fleming also has written about the story of Mordechai Vanunu, the Moroccan Jew who later converted to Christianity and was persecuted and jailed by Israel for that and for exposing Israel's secret nuclear arms program. Vanunu remains under house arrest in Israel prohibited from leaving the country or talking to journalists. He was jailed in Israel's Gulag for 18 years, including 11 years in solitary confinement, a violation of the Fourth Geneva Conventions and fundamental Human Rights.
