Can you imagine the world's reaction if Syria or Iran were caught doing this?

"U.S. diplomats criticized New Zealand's reaction to the 2004 arrest of two suspected Israeli spies, accusing New Zealand's government of using the affair to increase its export of lamb to Arab states, the Guardian reported on Tuesday, citing cables released by WikiLeaks.   Ties between Israel and New Zealand grew strained after two Israelis, thought to be Mossad agents, were caught trying to illegally forge local passports. New Zealand's then-Prime Minister Helen Clark suspended high-level diplomatic relations until Israel formally apologized over the incident in 2005.  (thanks Olivia)
