Israeli authorities arrested a Belgian citizen of Iranian origin for taking photographs and carrying out surveillance on the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv and other Israeli and Americans sites, according to a gag order that was lifted on Sunday.

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) identified the man as Ali Mansouri, who landed at Ben Gurion Airport three times in the past 15 months under the name of Alex Mance. He first arrived in Israel in July 2012, and his third visit was on Sept. 2 this year, concluding with his arrest at the airport on the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States.

The suspect confessed to security authorities that the Guards’ terror branch sent him to spy.  The Guards offered him $1 million for his pictures and information.

The arrest occurred two weeks before Iran’s new president, Hassan Rohani, delivered his “charm offensive” speech in the United Nations and chatted with President Barack Obama for 15 minutes over the telephone.

Rouhani called the United States a “great nation,” and unless the spy actually was a friendly tourist collecting pictures to show his family how much he enjoyed his visit to the Zionist enemy, it can be safely assumed that the intentions were more in line with traditional Guards activities,  such as blowing up Jewish, Israel and Americans buildings.

That does not exactly fit in with President Barack Obama’s statement last week “while there will be significant obstacles and success is by no means guaranteed, I believe we can reach a comprehensive solution. I do believe that there is a basis for a resolution.”

The basis, of course, is for Iran to continue hoodwink the Americans, and the resolution, just as obviously, is for Tehran to get its hands on a nuclear weapon that can lead to an Islamic peace by annihilating Israel.
