"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??
WORD OF CAUTION:
This thread was NOT created to divide Americans and Israelis!
This is a warm, rational discussion between the very best of friends.
Please keep it this way, no personal attacks or pathos flowing.
FYI - Pollard is about to be released, probably after the next natural disaster strikes in Asia with the release placed on page 16 of your local paper:
(also a swap between CIA agents held in Israel to be released at same time - THAT WAS A JOKE ;> )

Israeli envoy to visit Pollard soon
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Israeli Ambassador to the United States Danny Ayalon may visit in the near future Jonathan Pollard, who has been incarcerated for over 20 years after being convicted of spying for Israel.
According to Army Radio, Deputy Minister Orit Noked (Labor), who spoke with Ayalon on Friday night, said the visit would be the opening shot for examining Pollard's release procedure.
Over the weekend, it was reported that the US administration might soon release Pollard in an attempt to soften the right wing battle against the disengagement plan, scheduled for this summer.
Last month, the Knesset passed a resolution demanding that the government make the release of Pollard a condition for Israel's freeing of Palestinian prisoners.
It also called on the government to demand that the US immediately release Pollard on humanitarian grounds because of his long prison service and his deteriorating health.
The resolution, drafted by the National Union, Shas and National Religious Party, noted that Israel has recognized Pollard as an Israeli agent who acted loyally for the security of its citizens. MK Yitzhak Levy (NRP) said Israel was being asked by the US to make gestures to the Palestinians.
The PA's first demand is that Israel release prisoners, he said. But there was "one Jewish prisoner rotting in jail," and the "friendly superpower that is asking us to give mercy to terrorists here is not willing to give us the same mercy."
Levy called on Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to "show the same kind of courage" he has displayed on his plan to evacuate "Jews and settlements," and to "not release a single prisoner until Pollard is in Israel."

On 9/11 Atta mailed those little anthrax greetings hoping to kill thousands more. If not for Pollard on 9/11/2001 Atta would have had arranged to have a dirty little nuke in a containership in some lock near Cincinatti where the direct bomb damage would have wrecked a good part of Mississippi to Great Lake transport, but the radiation plume would have conveyed over Pittsburgh, Phildelphia, New Jersey, Baltimore and DC, causing great havoc.
Thank you, Jonathan Pollard! You alone saved us all from Iraq having nukes. Pollard -- you are a GREAT AMERICAN!
They show themselves as moral cowards. American and Jewish-American.
