Professor Morris Pollard was laid to rest Monday, denied the privilege of having his son Jonathan present to recite the Kaddish the traditional Jewish prayer for the dead over his grave.
Jonathan Pollard sat grieving for his father in his jail cell instead, his mother already having died -- also without his presence to comfort her in her final hours.
Despite thousands of phone calls that flooded the White House switchboard, an appeal to the U.S. State Department by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren and pleas by dozens of Israeli lawmakers, the Obama administration refused to allow Pollard to attend his father's funeral.

I was going to say ‘Good’ but somebody beat me to it!
Good, I hope his father died realizing what a worthless POS he raised.
So, betraying your country and the freedom it has given you may negatively impact your freedom to make life’s choices later? I bet he didn’t see that coming.
We will be accused of being nazis, shortly, by the fanatics.
Actions have consequences. He must assume responsibility for the consequences of his actions. This is but one of them. I have no sympathy for him.
The bastard should be grateful - if the proper punishment were given to him for his treason, his father would have said Kaddish over his grave long ago.
I say good, too.
Sold our secrets to Pakistan ALSO.
And on multiple occaisions.
AND WAS PAID.
After he was imprisoned, over a dozen times he abused his mail priveleges to KEEP doing it..!
He could be out tomorrow if he would tell what he knows.
Since he wants to stay quiet, he can quietly stay.
(And if he didn’t still have some secrets to keep, you wouldn’t have most of these people trying to get him out.)
Pollard Jr should have beaten Pollard Sr to the other side by a couple of decades.
I’m a nazi, nazi, nazi, super extra double turbo NAZI with cherries on top.
If you could post a link to something about that, that would probably finalize it for me. Let him stay in for life.
Even hinting that J Pollard did something wrong is anti Semetic!
According to new evidence released by the FBI on Monday, Jonathan Pollard not only passed classified information on to Israel, but also to Pakistan and Australia. In a presentation given by FBI agent Ronald Olive that was broadcast on Channel 10, it was also revealed that Pollard was illegally involved in arms sales to Taiwan, France, Kenya, Afghanistan, and Argentina.
