Having established the first nuclear research unit four years after its establishment, Israel indirectly made information agreements with the United States. France carried out the installation of the facilities. In fact, the aim of the Paris government was to support Israel against Egypt, which was preventing it from reaching its colonies by nationalizing the Suez Canal. France, which tried its first nuclear test in 1960, had shared this technology with Israel long ago. It is known that Britain has support for raw materials. The country that protects Israel from reactions, which is thought to have the first nuclear weapon in the late 1960s, is of course the USA.

Mordechai Vanunu, who got a job in 1977 at the Negev #Nuclear Research Center that Israel established in the desert in 1958 and resigned from his position 8 years later, shared with the British Sunday Times newspaper the photographs of this facility operating within the scope of weapon production beyond peaceful purposes. Israel made great efforts to bring Vanunu back, but without success. Later, an American Mossad female agent made Vanunu fall in love with her and brought him to Italy. Vanunu, who set foot in Rome in 1986, was soon captured by Mossad agents and taken to Israel. Vanunu, who was sentenced to 18 years in prison as a result of secret trials, was released in 2004. Vanunu, who is now known to live in East #Jerusalem, is forbidden to leave the country and to talk to non-Israeli citizens.

Mr Vanunu converted to Christianity in the 1980s and married theology professor Kristin Joachimsen in Jerusalem in 2015 after first meeting her in Israel almost a decade earlier. In 2017 Norway offered to let Mr Vanunu live in Oslo with his Norwegian wife, but the Israeli authorities refused.

Secretly was on trial, Vanunu was sentenced to 18 years in prison in 1998 and released in 2004. Today, Vanunu, who lives in East Jerusalem, is forbidden to talk to non-Israeli citizens and to leave the country. A fact is that; It has such great intelligence and military power with the name that protects it and the power it gets from states.
