Good for him

Detroit resident David Tenenbaum and his wife are suing the United States Defense and Justice Departments for $200 million for filing false complaints against him. Tenenbaum, who has security clearance, charges that the US government labeled him a spy for Israel because he is an Orthodox Jew.
The suit charges that investigators "falsely accused Tenenbaum of being an Israeli spy on the sole basis that Tenenbaum is Jewish."

The Tenenbaums previously lost a religious discrimination lawsuit filed after he was suspended from his Pentagon job in 1997 for 14 months before being cleared of all charges. He has since returned to his job at the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command, but his lawyer argued that the probe damaged his career and that he is shunned by colleagues.
I wish Mr. Tenenbaum much success in his lawsuit. If he had been Muslim he never would have been accused of spying for anyone.

Same here.

Only Jews get suspected of having double loyalties. And when they are, they pay the price.

If he was a Muslim, no one would care if he spied for Al Qaeda or some Arab country.
