Reporting on Israeli espionage stuff is not anti-Israeli per se. The Israelis are just, next to the US/5 Eyes and China/Russia, the most capable nations on Earth when it comes to espionage skills and scope of their programs.

And every so often, scandals get dragged through the media. The US / 5 Eyes had Snowden, Russia the whole Trump/Democrat email hacking, China a boatload of industrial espionage and now it's this Israeli half-scandal here.

I would not throw this into the bin with the usual anti-Israeli agenda pieces that arise e.g. with reports about the Palestine conflict.
