  1. Roc Diaz says:

    america will do the same to every jewish citizen eventually. we will not be allowed to leave.

  2. Charlie Hall says:

    This does not belong under the "Antisemitism" category; there is absolutely zero evidence that Jonathan Pollard is being treated any better or worse than any other convicted spy serving a life sentence. (And there are four non-Jews currently serving life or longer terms for the same crimes.)

  3. Debbie Hall says:

    I agree. If people are mad at anyone, it should be Israel for dropping the ball and letting him take the heat. Israel should have made a HUGE deal about the fact that he shared with them stuff that they should've been informed of in the first place. He committed treason, plain and simple. Was he righteous in that crime? Sure, I think so. But part of doing something like that is being willing to face the consequences of doing so and take it like a man and feel good about what you did.

  4. Charlie Hall says:

    Israel should take the heat for spying on America. It is the only real hostile act that Israel has ever taken against the US. (OTOH, the US was quite hostile to Israel during the Eisenhower administration.)

  5. Charlie Hall says:

    "He committed treason, plain and simple."

    Technically it was not treason, the only crime defined explicitly in the US Constitution:

    "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." — Article Three, Section Three.

  6. There is a lot of evidence that Jonathan Pollard is being treated a lot worse than all spies in the same category as he was. Not one has served a sentance as long as him. The evidence is on the justice for jonathan pollard site.

  7. Charlie Hall says:

    Debbie Hall "he shared with them stuff that they should've been informed of in the first place"

    Actually we do not know that. We don't know what he gave them as he has never talked. And in any case it was not his decision to make.

    Rachel Meidan "Not one has served a sentance as long as him. "

    This is a false statement. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg got the death penalty for spying for an ally. (And Ethel was probably innocent.)

    There are also four others currently serving longer sentences for espionage:

    John Walker, Aldrich Ames, and Robert Hanssen are serving life sentences. Walker has been in prison longer than Pollard. And Jerry Whitworth is serving 365 years (that is not a typo).

  10. Charlie Hall says:

    An interesting fact: If Jonathan Pollard gets released from prison this year, he will not be able to get any medical care in the US. Fortunately Obamacare kicks in in full on 1/1/2014. Pollard is scheduled for release 11/21/2015.

  12. Pollard will not be released early, because he embarrassed the defense establishment by revealing how low its standards were for civilian employees during the late Vietnam era and post Vietnam era. Pollard allegedly failed drug tests and DoD hired him anyway and gave him access to classified information. Moreover, some of the acts Pollard was accused of were actually done by Aldrich Ames. Some of the documents the USSR obtained could not have been provided by Pollard, as he had no access to them, but Ames did.

  13. Charlie Hall says:

    Agree regarding the low standards. It is inexcusable that Pollard should have had a Top Secret clearance. There were many red flags in his lifestyle. But back then they were more concerned with who you were sleeping with.

  14. Roc, pardon me but you seem deeply paranoid. What evidence supports such a wild idea?

  15. Anonymous says:

    Every former atty general congress et etc knows Pollard is being screwed by this ape and his friends in the white house..The only thing Pollard did wrong was get caught and yes he has to be a man about it which he has he spied agaisnt Iraq he is a patriot plain and simple.

  16. since when the punishment for this crime Pollard committed, if it was a crime, is 2-4 years why is he punished with life imprisonment? sounds discriminatory to me. Is it because he is Jewish, and Obama is muslim?
