Reactions to news that Pollard the traitor will go free

New York Times | July 28, 2015

Comments from New York Times readers regarding Jonathan Pollard’s forthcoming release:

Pollard betrayed his country and the sacred trust it placed in him. He seems to be totally unrepentant. His crimes were motivated by allegiance to another nation. I don’t see why America should be releasing Pollard, and at the same time trying to imprison a man who leaked secrets to the American people, motivated by love of the Constitution and concern for our disappearing freedoms. I’m talking, of course, about Edward Snowden.

I DO NOT approve of this, and I have written the White House and my representatives to say so. A spy who spies for a ‘friend’ is far, far more dangerous in many ways than a spy who spies for a nation or entity that is clearly our adversary. He should of course be treated humanely, but he should die in prison. If Israel chooses to spy on the USA again, and I am certain that they have people trying to do so even today, it should be crystal clear that the price for that is very high.

~

The fact that he was not executed for treason and that relations with Israel were not permanently affected by his spying – those things constitute a dangerous degree of concession to a nation that is willing to undermine our security for their own gain. He should remain in prison, and entreaties by Israel to release him should be met with a cold shoulder.

~

Pollard is the worst kind of human being, a traitor to his country. If Israel gives him a hero’s welcome, it will be proof to the American people that Israel is not a true friend of the U.S., but is willing to sacrifice the safety and security of American families in pursuit of its own goals. May Pollard never be allowed to return to this country when he leaves.

Pollard stole the crown jewels of American intelligence (documents detailing the sources and methods utilized to safeguard American interests and agents throughout the world) and sold them to the Israelis, who proceeded to trade the material with a number of countries, including the Soviet Union. Pollard’s treasonous betrayal of his country has made him a hero in Israel. Pollard’s offenses are infinitely worse than any crime committed by Edward Snowden, who exposed classified information not to a foreign government or for money, but to inform the American people of the illegal activities directed by their government against them. Once again, the Obama Administration proves that justice lies not in what you do or its effects, but who you know and their influence. — David Eason, Denver, CO

How could he have been tried and convicted as a spy for selling secrets to Israel? Is not Israel just a distant 51st state? Albeit a very greedy,ungrateful and entitled state that has more influence in our Congress than the Koch brothers. A state that has no other friend in the world but us yet insults our president and threatens our Congress. — Ed Blau, Marshfield, WI

~

Let’s see, they spy on us, they undermine our democratically elected president, they cause us to loose face in the world for being on “their side”, they cost taxpayers billions, yes billions, every year in free money we give them and highly escalated military costs because of them, they kill innocent woman and children, and these are our dear friends? Yikes! No wonder no one likes us anymore.

~

The NSA investigate the corrosive effect of Israeli lobbying on American Security. When the Senate Minority leader (Democrat Charles Schumer-NY) puts Israel’s interests over that of his own country’s, or at least says he needs to weigh the Iran deal through the lens of Israel’s security needs, as opposed to those of his own country’s, and when the Israeli Ambassador (born American) has open doors to anybody’s office in the US Congress, this is an insidious relationship. Those who support Pollard’s release just on the basis of his Jewish faith (presumably coinciding with their own faith), really need to check their passports in.

  2. Have our “intelligence” MK-ultra professionals turned Pollard into an agent who would benefit the U.S.? If so, send the agent to Israel for our benefit.

    Best we can hope for otherwise is publicity of Israelis showing their true colors in reaction to receiving this ‘national hero’–showing the U.S. their concern as our alleged allies.

  5. Pollard is mentally unstable, and I fail to understand how he could ever have obtained a security clearance.

    Much of the material Pollard furnished to Israel ended up in Soviet hands, in exchange for the USSR allowing more Jews from there to emigrate.

  6. Trades the safety of the west for another countries benefit, why wasn’t he executed as an example for those that maybe considering it in the future, Jews already know they are safe from gallows. Is he in a special prison with privileges and week end passes.

  7. While I’m glad some people are upset with his release there is no shortage of comments in the New York Times supporting his release. Probably most Americans don’t have any idea of the damage Pollard did to this country. Even our government doesn’t know the full extent of the damage. The news media has made sure they don’t know.

  8. My feelings are that Pollard should have had the death sentence
    for espionage, pure and simple. Instead he is sent to a non-prison,
    Butner, NC, which is basically a spa. What a joke for punishment.
