    Calling Anat Kam a "spy" is a play on our national sentiment that's being made by those whose motives are being served by the things revealed and threatened to be revealed by her whistleblowing. She's no more a spy than the soldiers of conscience who stepped forward after Cast Lead, and those who talk to Breaking the Silence. She was exposed to wrongdoings during the course of her service, just as they were, and the only real difference is that her story could be printed in the mainstream media instead of being buried in the archives of some NGO website, because she could provide physical proof that could not be discredited and swept under the rug as fabrications and hearsay, which is the IDF norm. That's why she's being hung out to dry, while many other whistle blowers haven't been. Also, she did not steal the documents, she copied them. And if the material was sensitive to national security, why were the articles resulting from it approved for publication by the IDF censor?
