This whole saga simply divides people who might otherwise agree on much more important issues; Pollard’s defenders will use it as an excuse to accuse people of anti-Semitism (regardless of the merits of the case), while those who feel he should serve out his sentence will accuse his defenders of being “Israel-firsters” (regardless of the meris of the case). It is nothing but division, and serves no one in the end (including Pollard). If he is pardoned, it will almost assuredly be at the hands of a Dem president (as his defenders have pointed out here, with BJ Clinton).

I simply ignore it, and focus on more important things (and to both sides of the debate: there are more important things).

Do not forget that Pollard was supposed to be released into the general
prison population, but then-Sen. Hillary Clinton got him
transferred to the expensive sex offenders lockup, taking up
valuable space that might otherwise go to somebody that could
actually benefit from the therapies available at the facility.

I would not vote for a Dem for a hundred Pollards, even if I still lived in the US. It’s impossible to ignore the case, but I really don’t know what to make of it in the larger scheme of things, and continuously change my mind.
