Gonen Segev in former times...

...wasn't so open to Iran as he seems  to be in the last years - regarding Israels Shin Bet, charging him with spying for Iran, giving Israel’s arch-foe sensitive information about locations of security centers and the country’s energy industry.

Other sources say he is a classic type [to be targeted] because he is greedy and readily gets involved in dubious transactions. 

But why all this anger by Shin Bet and other "institutes" about him? Can it be that there are other reasons for his arrest? Maybe his connection to a security company with a "special" background? Some powerful dark figures in the ecstasy trade? Or is it a revenge of Yossi Beilins network for Segevs pressure in 1994  - when he was a Knesset member - to reveal some details about secret cooperation between Israel and two not named countries?

Even in Israel it is the same as in Germany with the media and their unexperienced freelance journalists: They claim to publish thrilling new, unknown details or they believe their sources that the information is new, but in reality it is nothing spectacular. The Times of Israel writes: A former head of the Shin Bet security service said Saturday that prior to being recruited by Iran to spy on Israel, disgraced ex-minister Gonen Segev was a kidnap target of the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group, an Iranian proxy.

This is not new.

But all this is still speculation. Combing through the documents and analyzing his social network there are a few interesting details to see, regarding his friends from Israel, his connections to some embassies etc. Not only Israel should ask its counterintelligence experts about possible leaks.
