The inner workings of the Iran Contra Affair, and the treachery involved in staggering. On the American side in particular, Cap Weinberger tried to hang Oliver North out to dry on this affair. It is interesting that to this day, Cap Weinberger is an old dried up fart, seething with Jew Hate and undoubtably will die a lonely death, while Ollie North is a young, bright energetic rising star, that will not let the Cap Weinberger's of the world dissuade him from expressing his concept of the truth. Weinberger is the epitiome of the ills of the State Department and the CIA--they are so much smarter than everyone else that the ends justify the means--in other words, what matters the fate of Oliver North or Jonathan Pollard if it interferes with your notion of self G-dhood.
"If Weinberger hasn't died already! If he had, I doubt that anyone would know."

Like all spies, Pollard should have been executed.
Since we apparently don't do that anymore, let him rot in prison till death.

Pollard will rot forever.
Betrayal with or by a friend is worse than betrayal by an enemy.
That is exactly why we are so angry at France and Germany, they were supposed to be our friends.
Oh... the humanity...!!!! Oh... the compassion...!!!!
I believe we are talking about a spy here. The man was a spy and he betrayed his country. If he cared about the Israeli more than he did about his country nothing prevented him from moving to Israel and contribute to Israel's welfare.
Being a spy, he deserves the punishment spies get.

There. Much better. I don't give a rat's rotten behind what religion or ethnic background he claims. And I'm tired of morons whining about their religion or ethnic background when they're caught doing something evil.
Pollard spied for money. Pollard violated his oath to the United States. Pollard was convicted of espionage. Pollard received a sentence that, however harsh, was within legally permissible guidelines. Pollard should serve out his entire sentence, as an example to anyone who thinks spying for a "friendly" power is less a crime than spying for an enemy, or anyone who puts some other group loyalty above his or her oath to the United States of America.

Mordechai Vanunu is also a Jew and he is also in prison. What is your position on his case?

It may indeed have been wrong . . . - it in no way justifies him being given this excessively long prison sentence for such a minor offence
May have been wrong? Minor offense?

...The inner workings of the Iran Contra Affair,
The inner workings of the Iran Contra affair had a great deal of Isreali participation and doublecrossing. It's such a shame that during the Iran Contra hearings Isreal's involvement was protected by being refered to as "country C" rather than it's name.
Weinberger is a great American, Pollard's lucky to be breathing, and his wife's lucky to get to spend his Isreali "services rendered" rewards.

Sorry FRiend, but I think Pollard is right where he belongs, under lock and key.
Israel is OK. Traitors are not.

Jonathan Pollard was never a spy. A spy is a foreign agent employed to obtain secret information. Jonathan Pollard was and is an American citizen. His crimes fall under the far more serious category of treason: the violation of allegiance by betraying one's own country in favor of a foreign power. Spies and enemy agents are often traded between nations, traitors are not.
Why Pollard Should Never Be Released (The Traitor)
High-level suspicions about Israeli-Soviet collusion were expressed as early as December, 1985, a month after Pollard's arrest, when William J. Casey, the late C.I.A. director, who was known for his close ties to the Israeli leadership, stunned one of his station chiefs by suddenly complaining about the Israelis breaking the "ground rules." The issue arose when Casey urged increased monitoring of the Israelis during an otherwise routine visit, I was told by the station chief, who is now retired. "He asked if I knew anything about the Pollard case," the station chief recalled, and he said that Casey had added, "For your information, the Israelis used Pollard to obtain our attack plan against the U.S.S.R. all of it. The coordinates, the firing locations, the sequences. And for guess who? The Soviets." (boldface mine - Ronin)Casey had then explained that the Israelis had traded the Pollard data for Soviet emigres. "How's that for cheating?" he had asked.
He was a US citizen when he did this. He should never get out. Not even Clinton had the nerve to pardon him.
