International non-profit The Israel Project, confirmed on Tuesday that an intern named Ilan Grapel had worked for the organization, but said they could not confirm if that same Grapel was the alleged Israeli spy arrested in Egypt on Sunday.

“Someone named Ilan Grapel, a US citizen from Queens, New York then attending Johns Hopkins University, was one of 10 student summer interns who worked for us in 2008. Since completing his internship, he has had no further contact with our organization.  We are unable to confirm that this is the same person. We have no further comment at this time," Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, Founder and President of The Israel Project said.
