Did NZ Quake Uncover Spy Ring?

There are numerous websites and online news sources reporting that the New Zealand earthquake, which happened on February 22nd in Christchurch killing 181 people, may have exposed the existence of an Israeli spy ring.

Fairfax newspaper group are reporting that among the many dead an Israeli man was found with five passports in his possession and that New Zealand Prime Minister John Key had numerous conversations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following the quake, and that: ‘an unaccredited Israeli search and rescue squad searching a cordoned area in Christchurch was stopped by New Zealand officers.’

Subsequently Key has come under critical fire from his country’s political opponents who have been quick to remind the Prime Minister that in 2004 two Israelis were arrested for trying to steal the identity of a man with cerebral palsy, the investigation led to the unearthing of an Israeli passport ring in the country.
