It's good that this man was caught, but you have to wonder how many Iranian moles may be working in Israel undetected.

I wonder how many Israeli spies are in Iran. Actually, the Israeli's have a penchant for spying on, and infiltrating, American governmental institutions. But forget all that, Iran bad. Iran spy, Iran bad!
Meanwhile, the State Prosecutor's Office clarified Monday that contrary to earlier reports, the charges against Jirias have not been watered down, and the man was not supposed to have been indicted for espionage.
Jirias has been charged with conspiring to pass on information to the enemy and having contact with a foreign agent.
According to the State Prosecution, Jirias had been in contact on a number of occasions with Hani Abdallah Metwali, an Iranian intelligence agent known for his efforts to recruit Israeli and Palestinian agents on behalf of Tehran.
Metwali is believed to have put Jirias in touch with Iranian intelligence officials, who instructed the former council head to get involved in politics and gather information on Israeli society and government. (haaretz)
