Israel accuses Palestinian of spying for Hezbollah

By Associated Press


JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's Shin Bet internal security agency says a Palestinian man has been charged with relaying information to Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon about sensitive government sites, including parliament.

It identified the suspect as Azzam Mashahara, a resident of east Jerusalem, which Israel captured in 1967.

Palestinian residents of east Jerusalem, unlike Palestinians from the West Bank or Gaza Strip, have Israeli identity cards that allow them to travel freely within Israel.

The agency said the indictment was handed down on Sunday, a day after Mashahara was arrested.

All of the sites identified in the Shin Bet agency statement appear on Google Earth. Mashahara was charged with maintaining contacts with a foreign agent and relaying information to the enemy.

And what if the roles where reversed? What if the U.S. needed their help in such a situation, would we want them to not help us? America is better than that, we would need to help.
