Neturei Karta member charged with spying for Iran

It's been a long day working, but it sure beats the alternatives....

An Israeli member of the anti-Zionist Neturei Karta cult has been charged with spying for Iran.
There had previously been a media blackout on the case and a gag order remains on the haredi man’s identity.
At an unknown date, the man, 47, decided to make contact with the Iranian government in order to collect intelligence on Israel and send it to them, the indictment alleged.
In order to do this, he went online to check where he could approach an Iranian embassy, said the indictment.
The indictment said that in January 2011, he flew to Berlin and two days after arriving, approached the embassy to tell the Iranians that he was an Israeli and wanted to speak to them.
At the time he was clothed in his regular haredi dresswear, including black and white clothes, and tzizit (ritual undergarments).
Next, he met Hagi Baba and two others, said the indictment.
According to the indictment, he told Baba that he was against the Jewish state, wanted the state to be taken over by non-jews, was ready to provide them intelligence and was even ready to "kill a Zionist," if necessary.
And you though Haredim don't use the internet....

If someone has an argument why - assuming this story turns out to be true - the spy is not a moser (someone who turns a fellow Jew over to be killed) under Shulchan Aruch Choshen Mishpat 388 (the name of a book and the chapter in the book), I'm all ears.
