  • American Arrested for Spying for Israel

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States arrested an 84-year-old American on Tuesday suspected of giving Israel secrets on nuclear weapons, fighter jets and missiles in the 1980s, in a case linked to the Jonathan Pollard spy scandal that rocked U.S.-Israeli relations.

    The arrest of Ben-Ami Kadish indicates that Israeli spying revealed by the Pollard case, still an irritant to the U.S. alliance with Israel, may have spread wider than previously acknowledged.

    "It was bigger than we thought, and they hid it well," said former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova, who prosecuted Pollard.

    Kadish acknowledged his spying in FBI interviews and said he acted to help Israel, according to court documents.

    He was accused of reporting to an Israeli government handler who was also a main contact for Pollard, an American citizen serving a life term on a 1985 charge of spying for Israel.
    His mind is not for rent, to any god or government.

    Not our good friend Israel.
    Be passionate about what you believe in, or why bother.

        Well, now at least Pollard will have a cell-mate.

        My father in law went to high school with Pollard. (Yes, I know, a great story).
