Israel is in no position to demand anything of the US. What I don't understand is whenever Pollards name is brought up, people here start poring buckets of dirt on Israel. It hurts much considering the respect and admiration the people of Israel feel towards the US. Saw it with my own eyes, feel it myself.

When you have been on this site as long as I have, you'll see dirt poured on virtually every group, country, religion, state, you name it. I want you to know that I have NO animosity toward Israel, in fact I have much respect for it. What I have no patience for are politicians (or journalists) who speak without having their brains engaged. There are many on this board with the same malady.
I'm sure you can agree that there is much of this going on on this board and in our respective ( my assumption you are Israeli) governmental bodies.
I don't believe that responsible Govt. officials of the US have ever "demanded" Israel do something. If they have, I hold them is as much disdain as any other who would demand of a friend.
