Israeli soldier accused of espionage studied under anti-Zionists

Sunday, April 11, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

Anat Kam, the young female journalist recently arrested on charges of leaking classified IDF information, spent years studying under some of the most virulent anti-Zionists professors in Israel following her release from the army.

Kam has been under house arrest since December after prosecutors discovered the extent of her treasonous behavior. Kam left the army in 2007, and either shortly before or shortly after shared classified information she had been privy to with members of the press, in particular a reporter for the leftist newspaper Ha'aretz.

After leaving the army, Kam herself became a journalist and began studying at Tel Aviv University, where she was a passionate student of Professor Shlomo Sand, author of the "The Invention of the Jewish People" and an outspoken apologist for Muslim terrorism against Israel.

During that time, Kam is believed to have leaked additional information stolen from documents in the IDF Central Command office where she worked during her army service. Ha'aretz and the rest of Israel's left-wing media had a field day with the information, some of which allegedly proved that IDF soldiers were carrying out extra-judicial executions of wanted terrorists. Some Israeli reservists have complained in the past that they put their lives at risk to capture these terrorists, only to have them released as part of a future "goodwill gesture" to the Palestinian Authority.

News of Kam's case broke in the international media months ago, though in Israel it was simply referred to as "the security case" since a gag order prevented publication of any details.

Kam is expected to receive a life sentence if convicted.
