This guy is interesting.Along with spying for Israel ,he was spying for South Africa.Pollard also stole classified documents related to the People’s Republic of China on behalf of his wife, who used the information to advance her personal business interests and kept them around the house, where they were discovered by investigating authorities when Pollard’s espionage activity came to light.The full extent of the information he gave to Israel has still not been officially revealed.
Interesting. Israel and South Africa.
I’m sure you know that William Burroughs wrote that in 1979 (?) a satellite with a Vela (Hotel obviously) package detected a double-flash off the coast of South Africa during a thunderstorm when there was an accidental break in the cloud cover. The story was that the South African navy was testing nuclear shells fired from SA navy ship along with the help of Israel. Since it was supposed to be a double-flash, I supposed it was a small fission-fusion weapon.
Don’t remember what year it was that South Africa gave up its nuclear weapons.
BTW, I’m 110% in favor of Israel having nuclear weapons to keep the arab/muslim hordes at bay.
