He committed Espionage and was convicted in a US Court of Law. Personally I'd let him out of prison just long enough to hang the son of a bitch.
Because of that his contact with other people who may be let out of jail has to be very limited.
I guess it's something he should have thought about when he did the crime.
It's also a very good reason to NOT give clearances to people who might as well be mem-sticks.
Maybe we could give him Assange as a roommate for a couple of decades. They could talk about it.
Did anything come out this from the wikileak documents?
Let us know how you feel, Phyllis.
When he visited Yad Vashem, the Memorial to the Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust, he said loudly: I am not a Jew. He said this in response to the guard who told him that he, too, would have been murdered in the Holocaust.
Weinberger is correct. You are Jewish if your Mother is Jewish. Jewish-ness does not flow from your Father. Sorry Phyllis.
It doesn't matter his Nationality, he ethnicity, or his motivation. He passed secure information about the U.S. to people who did not have the clearance to have it. Pollard is a traitor. Period.
“Why is he still confined, languishing, festering in jail for a total of twenty five years?”
Because we didn’t have the balls to execute him ?
Bullcrap. This American Jew believes Pollard should rot in prison for his treason.
You are one sick puppy, what did you do when you were in the military?
Treason is treason. Mr. Pollard is right where he belongs.
I think since the spying was for Israel is more the issue. If Pollard was spying for the UK, Canada, or even South Korea, he’d be out by now. He rots as a token to the Jew-hating world, whose epicenter, unfortunately is Israel itself. If he was Black, Gay, or female, he’d be out too.
Be that as it may, no ally should decide their own level of access, but considering the way BO has been behaving, I wouldn’t blame Israel for spying right now. What a mess...
he was and is a spy and a traitor....put him out of his misery, stand him up against a wall and shoot him...I do not care what happened to others. I do feel they should have also been put up against a wall and shot. Traitor is as traitor does...shoot him
Not every Jew is a victim..
Your thread was pulled because it started a flamewar according to the Admin Moderator.
Normally, reposting such as you have done is punishable by revoking your posting privileges.
I assume you have not been so punished because you were not informed as to the reason. Nevertheless, I am not engaging in the argument on this thread because it would seem the Moderator will pull the thread if *both* sides engage in the flaming.
As such I post only on this thread as a form of protest.
He's a traitor. He got off easy. Now if you want a poster child for police state treatment, look up Mordechai Vanunu.
As you say: “Ms. Chesler asks a very appropriate question...” Phyllis Chesler is a very courageous journalist, on a wide range of topics.
Especially topics the main stream media will not touch... and then she calls them (Amnesty International, N.O.W., etc.), on their hypocrisy.
Like this, about the Harry Potter actress hiding in fear:
No, actually he sold information to Israel - - and to Pakistan, and to South Africa, and he attempted to sell to Australia - - for cold hard cash (and some diamonds). You have posted several threads on behalf of this traitorous little weasel Pollard. Why do you care about him? What's in it for you?
It seems to me that Pollard's supporters are fools, seeing only Pollard in jail, and ignoring the goal. If Pollard is released and Tel Aviv and New York are nuked, what profit is there for Pollard, Jews and Americans? Pollard's supporters see him as a martyr? Fine. Then make sure his martyrdom is not for nothing, and stop undermining Israel by bringing him up.
