Skip to comments.Report: Prime Minister to Demand Pollard's Release
Posted on 12/23/2013 11:16:56 AM PST by Nachum
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will officially demand the release of Jonathan Pollard from the US, Channel 2 reported Monday.
The unconfirmed report claims that Netanyahu will reportedly ask for Pollard's release in one of two frameworks: either for another exchange of more Arab terrorist prisoners, or as part of agreeing to the interim deal between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
The agreement would follow the US's guidelines set for Israel and the PA for a peace agreement, the full outline of which is due to be presented in January 2014.
On Sunday, the Prime Minister joined in the criticism from Israeli and American politicians, experts, and public figures of revelations that the US and Britain had been spying on Israel. Netanyahu, like several others, called for Pollard's release in light of those revelations.
"We do not need a special occasion to discuss the release of Jonathan Pollard," Netanyahu stated. "We are constantly working on the matter, including with President [Barack] Obama. We are hoping that circumstances will emerge soon that will allow for Jonathan's release."

The game gets more interesting
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
That’s not the strongest card they’ve got in their hand to play.
this is how the spy game works- we try like hell to keep them behind bars for life, or else everyone would be spying on us
they try like hell to get them released, or no one would be willing to spy for them
if we get a good enough deal... (unless people are dead because of this slimeball- then he can rot)
You probably have read my posts about Pollard, the Walkers, etc., but...

...after all of the "don't spy on us" bs, this does seem to indicate that something is going on with spy vs. spy.
Methinks the U.S. is isolating Israel...on purpose.
Side note, I would prefer we don't anger the Lord of Hosts. It's not a good idea.
I would not be at all surprised to see Obama turn his back on American national security and release Pollard.
Netanyahu plays the NSA card...
Netanyahu: Spying ‘unacceptable’ between friends In first official response to NSA espionage
Tough luck, Bibi. We’ll ship you the body when he dies.
do we have anyone born and living in Israel who spied on Israel for America and gave us the intelligence and then got arrested that we can trade for?
It is only ‘fair’ he be released.
Bibi just flipped the ultimate bird to the anti-Semites un the Obama Admin...good
Didn’t the Israelis bug the Pentagon (Clinton or Bush43)?
I was thinking Obama would do the opposite. He would be so pissed off at the Israeli's that he would never let Pollard go.
I think the US and Israel have been spying on each other for a long time.
‘I was thinking Obama would do the opposite. He would be so pissed off at the Israeli’s that he would never let Pollard go. ‘
Which is exactly why Netanyahu said it. Gives him an excuse to say no to US demands.
Will the dictator-in-chief (DIC) give up a Jew? This should be interesting.
I noticed that slant too.
He is asking for Pollards release.
But then we are used to the propaganda and know
how to read beyond it.
didn’t he just say that allies don’t spy on each other?
“I was thinking Obama would do the opposite. He would be so pissed off at the Israeli’s that he would never let Pollard go.”
Obama never does the right thing.
