Famed psychic spoon-bender Uri Geller also had a career as a secret agent for Mossad and the CIA.
We may know him for spoon bending antics and for his lengthy friendship with pop star Michael Jackson but showbiz psychic Uri Geller has seemingly had a lengthy second career as a secret agent for Mossad and the CIA, albeit one that was more Austin Powers than James Bond.
“He (Dayan) was an avid collector of archaeological items, very ancient ones, four, five six thousand years old. They’re all around Israel. When he met me and saw my powers, the first question he asked me, after the serious questions of military use and all that…was ‘Uri, do you think you can find for me some archaeological artefacts with your powers.’ I said, ‘You know, Moshe, I’ve never done it but let’s try!’”
Well here is the answer, was he a spy? well not really in a James Bond sense, but more likely in "The thief who came to dinner" sense.
In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

In the end, who cares? Geller is a fake. I don't remember which talk show host did this, but the host produced a spoon that he wanted Uri to bend instead of the spoons Uri brought. Uri declined. Obviously Uri's spoons are specially attuned to his mind. Yeah, right!
I have an extremely low tolerance for B.S, hoaxes, fraud and deception.

Geller was totally busted by James Randi who recreated all of his antics, and then told us how he did it.
Geller is one of those Media - Hyped fools, and the same fools still fall for his complete charade
He was also busted on the Johnny Carson show I recall. Apparently he was supposed to find an object which was placed under a larger one (cans or weights) and the conditions were that he (Geller) could have NO contact with the said objects...the only time he seen them was when he was on stage for his performance. He failed totally then claimed it was an "off" day.
At any rate I knew he was a fraud as a kid though my father, at that time, believed he was genuine. My dad told me that Geller could repair a watch just by looking at it and I disagreed saying that even if one had that ability you still need to know how a watch works and in what manner it is broken otherwise you could cause more damage.
But in the end it doesn't matter, Geller is a fake and most people know this yet he still tries to deceive people because some people are ignorant (in the innocent sort of way) and he loves peddling his nonsense.
