He sure sounds like he already has changed his religion.

Free Jonathan Pollard!

Jonathan Pollard is accused of having given Israel information about the Iraqi nuclear reactor and the Iraqi program for attacking Israel with nuclear weapons. Why the U.S. had not shared this info with Israsel is an important question for future historians and theologans to grapple with. It's clear that Jonathan will be exonerated by history. The shocking double cross by prosectors with whom he struck a plea bargan is a travesty of justice.

Israel used the information to preempt the Iraqi nuclear threat to Israel and the West. Perhaps the U.S. would have provided the same information to Israel soon after Jonathan did in any case; one would hope that would have been the case. While the ends do not necessarily justify the means, Jonathan's law breaking was far, far lesser than others', yet his sentence was the harshest - life in prison. He loves the U.S. In contrast, those who were in fact out to harm the U.S. and passed information to the enemies of the U.S. walk free.

Jonathan was accused on passing information to the very strongest ally the U.S. has anywhere in the world - that was true then and remains true.

Actual traitors - people who have tranferred information to the enemies of the U.S. receive a fraction of the sentence that Pollard has received. Jonathan has been singled out and a life sentence is vastly disproportionate and a travesty of justice.

There is no other conclusion to come to but that Pollard's extreme Kafkaesque situation derives from anti-Semitic bias, a pattern for which there are, sadly, precedents in history.

A Christian finding religion in prison is seen as a positive development. Not so for Jonathan Pollard's increased practice of Judaism.

There are other reported instances of prison officials refusing Pollard humane treatment, even small requests, such as not allowing anyone to get him a new pair of frames for his old glasses to replace the broken ones whose metal digs into his face.
