Posted on 10/16/2006 6:04:12 PM PDT by Anti-Bubba182
House arrest for Jonathan Pollard in light of the profound injustice of this case is an absurd proposal.
It is an open secret in Washington that Jonathan is serving a life sentence not because of what he did, but because of what he represents -- the State of Israel.
Conventional wisdom holds that Jonathan has had his day in court. In point of fact, every legal appeal to uphold Jonathan's constitutional right to a fair hearing has been summarily rejected on non-substantial technicalities. In layman?s terms, the case has never been heard.
Even in spite of the endorsements of such august organizations as The ACLU, The National Association Of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and The American Association Of Jewish Lawyers And Jurists, and a host of top legal experts, the merits of the case for the release of Jonathan Pollard have never been heard in an American court of law....."

Consider Pollard's imprisonment as a small price to pay for the Liberty incident.
I guess he should be let go because he was spying for someone all those groups like, as opposed for someone they don't like. Well, no.
They want Ohmert to demand his release when he meets with POTUS next month.
Instead of letting Pollard out, how about we send him some company? Starting with the traitors at the New York Times.
Ohmert should be gone for the Lebanon fiasco. He is in no position to demand anything.
Start with Pinch.
How democratic(gag barf wrech), he is imprisoned not because of who he spied for but because he spied on us
For the way pollard damaged this country, we should send him to Club Gitmo and tell all the rags he's an Israeli spy.
Heck, I'll pay $49.95 to see that on pay per view!
Not more than a month ago, I recall reading that Ohmert was headed for a fall with Bibi waiting in the wings. IMO, Israel needs to put Bibi and the Likud back in charge.
As for Pollard, let him rot, but I am furious about Lynn Steward getting a whole 28 months today.
Yes, we routinely round up Jews and imprison them on trumped-up espionage charges. What-the-f$#k-ever.
You see, Mrs. Pollard, Israel had been penetrated by the Soviets at that time, and whatever secrets he gave to our Israeli friends probably made their way into Soviet hands. As somebody with a security clearance he knew the risks, both to himself and the US, and he's lucky he wasn't executed or made to disappear.
Even in spite of the endorsements of such august organizations as The ACLU, The National Association Of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and The American Association Of Jewish Lawyers And Jurists, and a host of top legal experts, the merits of the case for the release of Jonathan Pollard have never been heard in an American court of law.
America-hating pinkos all, I'll wager.
Jonathan Pollard is a convicted traitor. He should not be under house arrest, he should have been executed. He is a traitor.
Spies against the U.S.A. should be executed.
In rare cases of extreme cooperation; these spies
should have life imprisonment -- in isolation.
The take of the docs he stole filled several rooms.
He stole it ALL.
You don't suppose he's related to Esther Pollard, the author of this piece, do you? Pollard gets out when the USS Liberty's casualties are brought back to life.
"Pollard must have friends in high places"
Israel can't abandon it's highest profile spies. That move would not be lost upon those who would follow in Pollard's footsteps.
Israel is good at spying. Having Pollard incarcerated for the duration of his natural life is the best thing we can do to protect ourselves from Israeli spying.
