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.
My only regret is that Jane Fonda should be there with him.
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.
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!!!!
I am a Jew and Pollard got what he deserved. His annoying wife should stop whining. No one forced him to do what he did.
What happened? Boone went over to Spain -- a country that we were close to war at some times, and an ally at others:
After the Revolutionary War, Boone worked as a surveyor along the Ohio River and settled for a time in Kanawha County, Virginia (now West Virginia). In 1792, Kentucky was admitted into the Union as the 15th state. Litigation arose that questioned many settlers' title to their lands. Boone lost all his property due to lack of clear title. In 1799, he followed his son, Daniel Morgan Boone, to Missouri which was then under the dominion of Spain. Traveling by canoe, he and his family paddled down the Ohio River to St. Louis.Boone is today considered an American Hero! Yet in his life it was Spain that gave him real honors -- a renumerative office and lands, and Spain with whom he cast his lot.
In 1800, Boone was appointed magistrate of the Femme Osage District in St. Charles County, Missouri [that is, Spanish Territory]. He received a large tract of land for his services. When Missouri was transferred to the United States as part of the Louisiana Purchase, Boone once again lost all his land, most of which was sold to satisfy creditors in Kentucky
In case anyone is losing sleep over JP.
Thank you for the thread and thanks to all who contributed to give us some semblance of understanding on this subject.
Good lord, what horsepuckey. I don't care how PURE his motives were for being a spy in our intelligence agency. He did it. I wouldn't care if another inmate smashed his head against a toilet.
The SOB should have fried.
And then today we see:
A Pentagon analyst was arrested Wednesday and charged with giving top secret information about potential attacks against U.S. forces in Iraq to employees of a pro-Israel group.
Larry Franklin, a 58-year-old Air Force Reserves colonel who once worked for the Pentagon's No. 3 official, is the first person charged in a long-running investigation into whether Israel improperly obtained U.S. secrets.
No. End of discussion.
and we're not giving up Michael J. Pollard either...
