A haredi man from the anti-Zionist Naturei Karta sect was charged Thursday with allegedly making contact with Iranian representatives abroad with the intention of passing them sensitive information about Israel.And who would those Zionists be that he'd be willing to mark for death? It could have been pro-Israel Haredis and even people from outside the Haredi enclave. It's lucky he was arrested, because even if the Iranian officials he met with didn't take him with full seriousness, he could still have caused considerable harm to innocent people everywhere. Clear proof why sects like Neturei Karta must be kept under surveillance.
The Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office filed the indictment with the Jerusalem District Court on charges of intent to commit treason and contacting a foreign agent.
There had previously been a media blackout on the case and a gag order remains on the haredi man’s identity.
At an unknown date, the man, 47, decided to make contact with the Iranian government in order to collect intelligence on Israel and send it to them, the indictment alleged.
In order to do this, he went online to check where he could approach an Iranian embassy, said the indictment.
The indictment said that in January 2011, he flew to Berlin and two days after arriving, approached the embassy to tell the Iranians that he was an Israeli and wanted to speak to them. At the time he was clothed in his regular haredi dresswear, including black and white clothes, and tzizit (ritual undergarments).
Next, he met Hagi Baba and two others, said the indictment.
According to the indictment, he told Baba that he was against the Jewish state, wanted the state to be taken over by non-jews, was ready to provide them intelligence and was even ready to "kill a Zionist," if necessary.
