It was Iran too, but Iran was a sort of alley to Israel at the time (with a crumbling relationship).

It’s believed Pollard revealed that the US had been double dealing, and providing arms to both sides of the Iran-Iraq war, specifically, chemicals and cluster munitions to Saddam.

Whatever... It wasn't Pollard's job to determine (or undermine) US foreign policy.

Anyway, the little weasel was selling classified information to countries like South Africa and Pakistan (and finally got nailed trying to sell to Australia - Australia!) because he needed the money to support his cocaine habit.

That greedy little scumbag is right where he belongs.

alley—an enclosed often empty space between two tall buildings

ally—a fellow traveler who actively supports another’s belief system and value structure. Can be said of an individual or a country. When a country is an ally it usually lends its own military and intelligence assets in support of the actions of the country with whom it has shared goals and interests.
