An anti-Zionist Neturei Karta demonstration in Jerusalem. The alleged spy told his Iranian hosts he would gladly kill a Zionist for them.

A Jerusalem resident who belongs to the ultra-Haredi Neturei Karta sect is being charged with contacting the Iranian embassy in Berlin, offering to spy for Iran in Israel, and even proposing to murder a Zionist for Iran.

The man is being charged with contact with a foreign agent and an intent to commit treason.

According to the charges, which were made public today, the man decided three years ago to start spying for Iran. He went online—not a small feat for a Neturei Karta man—and checked out Iranian embassies in Europe. In January, 2011, he flew to Berlin, showed up at the Iranian embassy and told the reception clerk that he was an Israeli citizen interested in meeting an Iranian official.

He was taken to an office in the embassy where, according to the charges, he met with three unknown individuals. He told the Iranians who he was, explaining that his faith rejects the existence of the state of Israel, and that he wished to replace the current Israeli government with a gentile government. He then proposed to pas intelligence information to the Iranians.

During the meeting, the man asked his hosts how come they don’t manage to guard their people in Iran against Israeli assassinations. In response, the Iranians asked how he can be so insolent when he’s asking for political asylum, and he responded that he wasn’t interested in an asylum, and that he would gladly murder a Zionist for them.

According to the charges, the Iranians told the accused they were going to check the matter with their superiors and gave the accused man a note with an email where they would send him messages. They also instructed him to call them at the embassy.

The accused returned to Israel and started checking the email account in Internet cafes around Jerusalem. He also made several payphone calls to Iran’s Berlin embassy, asking to speak to “Haji Baba,” the nickname of one of the Iranian with whom he had contact in Germany.

The arrest of double-oy-vey-seven took place two weeks ago, under a massive gag order. He was remanded to a holding cell in the Petach Tikva magistrate court and his appeal of the arrest was rejected by the district court. According to the prosecution, the accused has already admitted the charges against him.

  1. Double Oy-Vey-Seven. Heh.

    Good job, Yori. And it's time for the NSA and the FBI to check to see if any of this is going on with American Neturei Karta adherents in the USA. Although my suspicious is this guy is a lone wolf.

  2. I am a Jew. These people do not speak for me. I do not believe that they speak for most Jews. Anything they say or do is not productive. Maybe we should find out how they support themselves to make sure it is legal?

  3. I am surprised that the Israelis took so long to figure out that Naturei Karta was an anti Israeli operation. Pictures of their "Rabbis" have been posted all over the Arab world meeting with Iranians, and every other crackpot nation. So why the fuss all of a sudden here. The way things are going in Israel these days, it might be best if everyone vacated the Land of Israel and new immigrants (Not Palestinians) come in and create a new Israel. The current Israelis are doing a real piss poor job in protecting their homeland.

  4. Time for the Israeli government to ask the members of this anti Israel group, if they want to stay in the Zionist Jewish state, or be given a one way ticket to Iran.
    They are a menace and a burden on the economy.
    They do not work, and live on the tax payer's money.
    Israel would be better without these Zionist/Israel haters.
    If they do not want to live in Iran, then tell them that unless they work for a living, and stop their hatred, then Israel must stop helping them financially or any way that they have been helped in the past.
    better to rid Israel of these traitors.

  5. From where he got money for the airline ticket and immediately stop funds to his family. Why is Neutrei Karta living in Jerusalem when they should be Time to expel them to Gaza and Jordan. With their attendance at demonstration shows they do not study Torah so they can be cowardly draft dodgers and beggars. NETUREI KARTA ARE A MASKED GROUP OF NAZIS CONTINUING HITLERS WORK. He flies to Berlin since that was their master's Hitler's throne.

  6. Yori Yanover
    By no means a lone wolf or chicken or slug…but an adherent to the teachings of the naturei karta cult. And here they stay, benefitting from Israel's facilities and opportunities; a country they despise and for whose downfall they pray. Why they're allowed to or choose to remain in this land founded on Zionist principles beats me!

  7. Mr. Flecker – Instead of shooting your mouth off continually with hot-headed asinine assertions which show how little you actually do know about Israel, why not just come on over and set everyone straight on how to avoid "doing a real piss poor job in protecting their homeland"? On the other hand, no…please! stay where you are!

  8. What he wants the Jewish people and government of counting on the government of Iran breaths Do they want to undergo Iran before the world to the Government of Israel, or what they want is worth mentioning that there is a Jewish Goliath living in Tehran, Isfahan in peace, love, and security with the Iranian people.

  9. Now under the auspices of the rulers and kings, princes and heads of Ministers, the world descended into of identity could lead to eat humans and sex through lack of reason, wisdom and fast pace of recklessness that could lead to war is not faithful to the winner or loser, it is perdition.

  12. I want to add. Lets look at the UNSC which is chaired by that ugly woman, Baroness Ashton who is a wold Jew hater and will do everything to damage Israel. It is also time for that body to be disbanded.
    Tthey condemn Israel for no reason at all. But have said very little about SSyria or Egypt,where Christians are being murdered because they are Christian and their churcehs are being destroyed Just like Jordan did when they occupied parts of Jerusalem, and the Old City, destroyed 56 synagaogues. and the Aftrican Islamic countries where the Christians are being slaughtered.
