While the arrest of some environment activists and the death of one of them, the Iranian – Canadian Kavous Seyed Emami, has made the news in Iran, Firozabadi, Khamenei’s top military adviser, has said that every environmental activist or a scientist who investigates in the field of agriculture can be a spy.
In a dialog with the state news agency, ILNA on Feb. 13tn, Firozabadi commented about a group, which he said had come to Iran to collect funds for Palestine, “After they finished their work and came back to Tehran we let them get out of the country but we kept their belongings. They had bought different kinds of field animals such as crocodile, lizard, or heliolatry. We looked for a reason why they had bought these animals. Then we realized that the skin of these animals absorb atomic radiations so they were atomic spies. They wanted to find out where we keep Uranium and where we have our atomic activities.
Khamenei’s top military adviser added, “Many of Iranians, and many foreigners who operate in Iran, they themselves do not know they are spying.
