Member of anti-Zionist Jewish sect indicted as spy

(JNS.org) A 47-year-old Israeli man who belongs to the anti-Zionist Orthodox Jewish sect Neturei Karta has been charged with allegedly serving as an Iranian spy, according to an indictment released Thursday, Aug. 1. Members of Neturei Karta, who oppose the establishment of a Jewish state until the coming of the Messiah, are known to have met with Iranian leaders while visiting Iran. The indictment said the man contacted the Iranian embassy while in Germany in 2011 and offered to gather intelligence about Israel. An Iranian diplomat allegedly gave the man an email account for correspondence. The Israeli suspect – who was not named in the indictment – has been accused of treason, Fox News reported.
