Oh, cry me a river. They should have executed this b@stard the day after he was convicted.
Friends don't meddle in friends criminal justice system. Is Israel our friend? Then shut up about the traitor Pollard.
I would have nothing against his corpse being returned. But let him first peg out.
He needs to be put in with the general population.
My only regret is that Jane Fonda should be there with him.
"Friends don't meddle in friends criminal justice system. Is Israel our friend? Then shut up about the traitor Pollard."
This is not about "criminal justice." If it was, Pollard would have been released a long time ago. This is about politics. The US uses Pollard to say: "don't tread on us" as many Russian and other enemy spies have been released in less than half the time Pollard served.
For those of you who wish Pollard dead, I can only thank the guy for pointing out to Israeli intel where the Iranian nuclear reactor "was"! The US govt didn't do that. Nor take it out. Today, we face another Iranian threat here in Israel.
Times have changed. Cooperation between Israel and the US has never been better, so why screw Pollard for the mistakes made by US and Israeli governments 20 years ago?
Has anyone here ever served time in prison - for 20 years???
Where does the word "humanitarian" kick in?
Let it rest. Let it be.
Kill this issue rather than provide PR and divide and conquer strategy to Islamic terrorists.
Here's how it should be "settled". Israel should apologize to the citizens of the USA for its egregious espionage practices, Pollard should serve out his sentence, then go to Israel and be a big hero. He won't be welcome here anymore.
Pollard's damned lucky he didn't get the Rosenberg treatment. As far as I'm concerned, he should have.
Friends in the intel biz said there is evidence that Pollard did not act alone; he never gave up his accomplices. Furthermore, some of the info that he supplied to the Israelis ended up in Moscow at the height of the Cold War. Maybe someone decided to make a few extra bucks by re-selling it. As an American and a Jew I say: he betrayed my country, and Israel should remember who her friends are. Pollard should serve his sentence. I fully support Israel, but this guy committed treason. Turning on your most important ally has serious consequences.
Pollard should stay in jail. One word can get you 5 years in jail -- and Pollard was made aware of this rule. He should not have accepted the job if he couldn't live up to the terms of the security clearance. A whole briefcase of stuff is more than enough for life in prison.
I knew that this thread would get some of you going ;>
Nothing like a bit of spice on a slow Thursday night - Friday morning in Israel.
I must also compliment Free Republic for posting in red: "loose lips sink ships" - they are very right.
Pollard was not the problem, sharing intel was.
Does the CIA spy on Israel?
Ok - let's not go there :>
Jonathon Pollard was free until he chose to betray his country; now he's not free. Seems simple enough.
What fools they are! They show themselves as sniveling cowards.
"Israel And Freedom For Jonathan Pollard..."
Jon boy Hair shirt upchuck hurl alert!!!!
"Obviously there are many Jewish Freepers who work in the Beltway and in the DOD related establishment who have been quick to spit better bile and curses on Pollard.
What fools they are! They show themselves as sniveling cowards."
Or, maybe Americans first, Jewish second??
And Sandy Berger will pay $10,000 for stealing and destroying top secret docs.
