Iran executes man as Israeli spy, hangs opposition group member

Iran has hanged a man convicted of spying for Israel and also executed another man who was a member of a government opposition group, state-run media reported Tuesday.

The executions took place at Tehran's Evin Prison at dawn Tuesday.

Ali-Akbar Siadat was sentenced to death for working as a spy for Israeli intelligence. The Islamic Republic News Agency said Siadat admitted to transferring information to Israel over several years in exchange for $60,000.

    There are 2 Arab Muslims sitting at a bar (a fruit bar!). First Arab Muslim takes out a picture of his kids and says "My pride and joy." The second Arab Muslim takes out a picture of his kids and says, "My pride and joy." Then the first Arab Muslim says, "They blow up fast don't they?". (Disclaimer: This in no way is a negative opinion toward any Middle Eastern race. It is only an attempt at humor.)
