Iran sentences two US Jewish spies

According to Murdoch’s The Wall Street Journal (August 20, 2011) – Two of the three American Jews arrested in Iran on charges of espionage and illegal entry in July 2009 – have been sentenced to eight year each.

Both Shane Bauer 28 and Josh Fattal 28 have been sentenced to three years each for illegal entry into Iran and five years each for spying for the United States. Shane Bauer’s girlfriend, Sarah Shourd 31, was released on bail and was allowed to return to United States.

The fourth member of the espionage gang, University of Washington PhD student Shon Meckfessel escaped arrest because he did not go for ‘hiking’ and stayed at the hotel.

American Jewish groups and Amnesty International had criticized Tehran for its hatred against Jews (there are over 25,000 Jewish citizen in Iran).

Peter Eyre, a Middle East Consultant, says that such espionage activities are quite common among international students, especially those of Jewish faith. I have found myself amongst them many times in the Mediterranean region and throughout the Middle East.

“Let’s just look as to how this system works for the CIA and Mossad. Imagine training a recruit who is an American Jew. They have to be prepared to denounce (not truly) their faith and their allegiance to the US. They must be prepared to publically denounce the US Governments policy towards the Middle East, be extremely critical of Israel’s policy and actions, especially towards such people as the Palestinians etc.,” he says.

Do you think a Jewish spy would have received such inhuman treatment in United States!

    I do not understand the last quote. Why would they recruit American Jews? It is so obvious that they are spies.

    For various reasons, i.e. many American Jews carry dual US-Israel nationality and the great majority of American Jews give priority to Israeli interests over interests of countries they reside.

    “I will confess it, at least, like thousands of other typical Jewish kids of my generation, I was reared as a Jewish nationalist, even a quasi-separatist. Every Summer for two months for 10 formative years during my childhood and adolescence I attended Jewish summer camp. There, each morning, I saluted a foreign flag, dressed up in a uniform reflecting its colors, sang a foreign national anthem, learned a foreign language , learned foreign folks songs and dances, and was taught that Israel was the true homelands…..,” Steven Steinlight, former head of national affairs of American Jewish Congress (AJC), in Jewish magazine “Backgrounder”, October 2001.

      Okay, I understand why recruiting American Jews for work within the West, but why send them to Iran?! and other middle eastern places. That just seems to obvious.
