"Espionage or spying involves an individual obtaining information that is considered secret or confidential without the permission of the holder of the information." Of course, by THAT definition you are a "spy" if you are sitting on a bus and you CAN'T HELP but hear two blow-hards discussing something that's a "secret". And, of course, by THAT definition SDHD is also a "spy" if he becomes aware of anything that is in Blau's possession that the IDF didn't want the public to know i.e. reading an article in Haaretz by an investigative reporter like Blau would make SDHD a "spy".
