The revelation that yet another spy working for Israel has been exposed inside the ranks of Hezbollah raises serious questions about the integrity of the organization at a time when it faces allegations of corruption and mismanagement.If the allegations are confirmed – and Hezbollah has not yet denied the reports – Shawraba would be only the latest of several Hezbollah members or Shiite figures trusted by the party to have been caught spying for Israel in the past eight years.Hezbollah subsequently said Slim had never been a member of the party.Twenty years ago, however, allegations of corruption and Israel's recruiting of Hezbollah officials were unheard of.Israel had few covert successes against Hezbollah in the 1990s due to the air-tight security in which the party operated.
