Pollard should have been executed immediately.

Those of us who know exactly the damage Pollard caused, need not, and bound by law as we are, we can not play your stupid game.

Pollard sold information to the government of Israel. Israel sold the information to the former USSR.

That the former USSR does not exist anymore is not due to any action of the Israeli government, but despite it.

Pollard will never be pardoned.
Israel will never again be considered an allied nation worthy of special trust, as they once were, before their admitted involvement with Pollard.

Why do you play games here?
In less than five years, the reason Pollard will die behind bars as a convicted traitor to the USA will become declassified to the point of open knowledge.
There is no way Israel will come out of the whole affair looking like a true ally to the USA.
Perhaps that will clearly explain why many subsequent USA government administrations appear to be ambivalent towards Israel.

OK. I'll bite.

But that is just it, isn't it. You can't tell, and I only have what information that is publicly available. Then, I have the option of merely accepting your words as true.

Pollard sold information to the government of Israel. Israel sold the information to the former USSR.

Yes, that much is known. Does that in itself merit more punishment than others? So far, no.

That the former USSR does not exist anymore is not due to any action of the Israeli government, but despite it.

And there is evidence that the real politik of the years after WWII also revealed that the US withheld critical information from Israel that could have lead to its destruction.

Pollard will never be pardoned.

Maybe not. But, when then again, they let the Lockerbie bomber go, didn't they?

Israel was never considered an "allied nation worthy of special trust". That is what is obvious from the history of the last four decades. Israel was supported for reasons of politics and politics alone. Obama has caved on much of his policies to force Israel into concessions due to domestic politics.

It is clear that Obama's first actions as president was to create physical danger to Israel. His very first call from the Oval Office was to Abbas. His policies are diametrically opposed to President Bush. He represents an organized movement that wants to enable the enemies of Israel and has done as much as he could with plausible deniability to bring some of the most extreme haters of Israel this country has into his administration.

Israel and Pollard not withstanding, many of these people are also connected with the world wide communist movement. This is not a 'progression' of a change of policy towards Israel, any more than the ramming of Obamacare was a 'progression'. The extremists in our midst saw their opportunity and have taken it. Part of that agenda is the destruction of the private sector along with our currency and yes, the emboldening of the enemies of Israel. This includes arming and training them. It includes with holding weapons systems already approved.

Ah. I could go on, but this subject goes far beyond Pollard.
