BREAKING: Pollard for Murderers, Just to Keep Talks Going

In order to extend the “peace” negotiations, the U.S. has offered to release Jonathan Pollard, the American convicted of espionage decades ago, in exchange for Israel’s release of the remaining convicted terrorists that had been part of the peace deal, plus hundreds of others, plus an agreement to freeze building homes for Jews, according to the Middle Eastern news outlet Al-Arabiya.

The Palestinian Arabs will agree not to do what they already agreed not to do: suspend their ongoing plans to join various UN bodies, including the Geneva Convention on the conduct of war and occupation.

Can you imagine? Israel feels threatened by the Palestinian Arabs’ promise to accuse the Jewish state of war crimes? Virtually the only way in which the Palestinian Arabs engage in military actions constitute war crimes: the use of human shields, hiding amongst civilians, shooting amongst civilians, kidnapping civilians, and refusing to allow hostages to meet with the International Red Cross.

Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. army analyst, was sentenced to life in prison in 1987. At the time of his trial, Pollard entered a plea agreement with the U.S. government to admit to espionage, in exchange for a sentence that was not excessive. Instead, the U.S. government reneged on its end of the deal and sentenced Pollard to the harshest sentence ever given to anyone who passed secrets to an ally.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had harshly criticized Israel, and tossed a few comments of “unhelpful” towards the Palestinian Arabs, regarding the breakdown in negotiations last week.

According to an informed source, although U.S. officials in the Middle East are confirming that a deal has been reached, and Israeli officials are saying a deal has been reached, White House and State Department officials in Washington are saying there is no deal.

The original date set for the negotiations to culminate in an agreement was April 29. This new alleged deal is sure to extend that deadline.

    Oh – that’s it: No.

  2. What does Pollard think? I thought so.

  3. Sue Johnson says:

    Do not release any terrorists!!!

  6. Folks you need to chill out! Why?
    Do you really think Israel will not monitor these terrorists?

    Israel will know where they are and what they are doing!!

    Good job – getting Pollard released
    In a few weeks most of those terrorists will be behind bars again!
    Hats off to Israel!
    Love Israel!

  7. blood moon tuesday lets see what event happens

  8. Why doesnt the US also release Charles Manson as a good will gesture to Iran?

  9. At this time of Passover, I wish Kerry frogs in his bed and blood

  10. This one is easy; agree with US to get Pollard home to Israel, then give the PA yet another reason to disagree…and don't release anything higher than a traffic violator…we, all of US, know what terrorist they can be. Best kill the beast in US with agreement and depend upon the islamic disagreement than release one murderer…because, as we all know islam is a terrorist nation of people determined to do the evil deeds dictated in their 'holy' books which can't be changed…short of burning them in a pit with gasoline! "They Must Go!"

  11. Gil Gilman says:

    an altogether bad deal for Israel…and everyone supporting Israel.

  12. A terrible deal for Israel and it will not bring peace, just more rockets and suicide bombers.

  13. So true Carol Hull Holden

  14. There will be no peace; there has never been any intention on the part of the Palestinians to agree to a peace; the PA just wants its killers back home.

  15. No more!, FINITO! Mr. Kerry.

  16. Sientje Seinen says:

    Isnt Pollard's sentence of imprisonment almost finished, It would be foolish to free all those terrorist prisoners when Jonathan Pollard is almost home.

  17. I had a nightmare that Jonathan Pollard was released about one year early and we gave up another 400 murderers. Someone please tell me IT WAS ONLY A NIGHTMARE.

  18. Just tell Kerry that if they give you Pollard, you'll continue talks. But that is without any terrorists in return.

  19. Larry H. Gentry says:

    Releasing terrorists to kill and plot again is beyond idiocy. Sounds like something the USA would do under the present administration. Israel, be strong…resist this crazy idea. Maybe reclaim Gaza?

  20. Dan Silagi says:

    I have a big problem with trading Pollard for a bunch of terrorists. Pollard for another spy, or spies, sure, but not a terrorist. I really don't have a problem with him getting a compassionate prison release due to illness, but to trade him for any murderer really gets my goat. The world doesn't need murderers running loose. It's that simple.
