Skip to comments.Jimmy Carter: Free Jonathan Pollard for peace deal
Posted on 04/05/2014 9:33:14 AM PDT by PaulCruz2016
Jimmy Carter weighed in on Friday on whether Jonathan Pollard should be released from prison as part of current Middle East peace talks, saying he would support freedom for the spy if the Israelis were to fully accept the deal from Secretary of State John Kerry.
Carter said in an interview that he would agree to the release of Pollard, the U.S. naval intelligence analyst currently serving a life prison sentence after a 1987 conviction for providing classified information to Israel, only if certain conditions were met.
If the Israelis would agree to accept John Kerrys proposal, if Pollard was released, I would say yes [to supporting freedom for Pollard], the former president said. But I would make it an absolute swap and a certain thing, not just as a factor.

Free Billy Carter. We need him now more than ever.
obligatory sarcasm comment made for the sarcastically challenged.
Can you imagine growing up with such a boob for a brother? I don't know how Billy managed it.
Any wonder why he was the second worst President in modern times? We all know who in number one. Sheesh, can this man be more anti-Israel and pro Pali murderers? He makes me sick.
The treasonous Pollard obsessives have found yet another scumbag.
The whole Pollard matter is moot since the Pals have a one word vocabulary - no.
Anyone who thinks “peace talks” in any part of the world are hinging on the release of a spy like Pollard is delusional.
On my bucket list: to visit Jimmy’s grave after consuming a six pack of Billy Beer.
Is this even a big issue for the Israelis? They give a crap about Pollard? I seriously doubt it.
Carter just wants to put out a reminder that Pollard happened.
First I gave the canal away..........
Ah the former resident with the awesome foreign policy credentials weighs in on current affairs. Back when this idiot was recently out of office and spent a lot of time with Habitat, I would say well he was a crappy president but a good man. It really took Carter no time at all to convince me that not only was he a crappy president but also a small minded, vindictive, evil little worm. I’d say what I really thought, but it would not be appropriate to the forum.
To much peanut mold went to his brain....
The gas station/museum will be doing land office business for a while.
Did this stiff really speak or did his carcass just have another cadaveric spasm?
You can always tell when Jimmy forgot his meds.

Pathology . inflammation of a mucous membrane, especially of the respiratory tract, accompanied by excessive secretions.
Jimmy Carter is SO damned obsessed with finishing his life’s major achievement, destroying Israel and killing the remaining Jews... that he would advocate just about ANYTHING to “get the peace (sic) talks going again” (which are designed to strip Israel of its defensively-strategic high ground and border buffer strip)....
It won’t work, Jimmy. Israel lives, and will continue to grow and build.
You can watch it from your perch in Hell, too.

Why doesn’t America do what they are demanding the Israelis do. Free criminals with no catches.
I don’t understand why Israel would sacrifice its future to get back a convicted mercenary spy. It’s demeaning for our SoS to think they would. Really, has Israel been waiting all this time to make “peace” with the Palis just so they could get Pollard back?
US voters decisively told Jimmy to STFU in the 1980 Presidential election. He still hasn’t gotten the message.
So, let’s review: Carter supports releasing Pollard, Carter hates Israel with every (remaining) fiber of his being, so it’s probably a very bad deal for Israel.
Looked at another way, Kerry’s “plan” for Israel is to commit national suicide, so no, trading one’s existence for a spy is a bad deal.
Sometimes beer really does heal all that ails you.
Pollard gets released in 2015 if he keeps his nose clean. Heard this from the NIS officer who busted him.
As though anyone cares what Jimmy says. He'll be out next year anyway.
Free America from these idiots.
Learn something from the PLO, Bibi. Do not give away the store just because they released Pollard.
Well this is unexpected (understatement).
