Man held in Egypt over spying for Israel

Jun 15 2013, 9:48pm CDT | by

Cairo, June 16 (IANS) Egypt has detained a man for allegedly spying for Israel's Mossad intelligence agency, state-run Al-Ahram news website reported.

Cairo, June 16 — Egypt has detained a man for allegedly spying for Israel's Mossad intelligence agency, state-run Al-Ahram news website reported.

The Egyptian State Security Prosecution decided to detain the man for 15 days on charges of working for Mossad since 2011.

The prosecution said the defendant, an employee of a private company, realised earlier that his link to Mossad had been monitored, so he "confessed" to the Egyptian intelligence in 2012, hoping that the authorities would drop charges against him.

The "fake report", as described by the prosecution, did not work as the Egyptian side kept an eye on the suspect and monitored his movements among Arab and Western countries during 2012 and 2013 until the evidence for conviction was completed, Xinhua said.

The man was arrested with surveillance devices and other equipment for communication with the Israelis.

Now That the Guns Have Been Silenced

Aug 28 2014 10:29am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The new ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has immediately raised the same old question: Will it last, or is it merely just another pause, providing the prelude for the next round of fighting à la previous ceasefires? My reading of the situation that brought both sides to agree to suspend violence on an open-ended basis suggests otherwise. I believe the current ceasefire is different as it was achieved under completely different circumstances and may well last. To begin with, th ...

Gaza: Some Secrets Few Will Say Aloud

Aug 26 2014 8:58pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Is everyone in Gaza crazy? Did they deserve what happened to them? I was flying through the Phoenix airport this summer, stopped for lunch, and found myself sitting next to two men who were loudly discussing the recent Israeli bombing of Gaza. "They deserved what they got." "Israel should bomb them back to the stone age." "Gaza is nothing but a den of terrorists." I quickly figured out that I had to change tables. Besides. This was ...

'Cold War:' Egypt Kept Secret Strikes Against Libya from US Due to 'Deep Distrust of Obama Administration'

Aug 26 2014 3:31pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) carried out airstrikes in Libya a week ago but did not tell the United States government. New York Times correspondent David Kirkpatrick said it is because the new government does not trust the Obama administration. “Well, we know they were carried out by the United Arab Emirates from bases in Egypt,” he told NPR radio. “And we know both governments at best tried to keep those strikes secret and behind the scenes. Egypt actually lied abou ...

Ex-archbishop: Ban jihadis from Britain

Aug 24 2014 12:16pm CDT | Source: WND

(DAILYMAIL) — The menacing advance of the Islamic State in Iraq should not prejudice Western people against Muslim people and the Islamic faith. I once served as an airman in Egypt and Iraq and can vouch for the kindness and goodness of many Muslim people. Indeed, more than three million have made their home in Britain, and by far the majority want to get on and make good and peaceful homes among us. But there is a darker side. Radical Islam is on the rise and imperilling our ...
