Jonathan Pollard's latest pleas

The state of Israel has put pressure on the Obama administration to release the treasonous Zionist spy, Jonathan Pollard, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a letter directly to Obama seeking his release for "humanitarian reasons" back in January.

Yesterday, the Jerusalem Post reported:
Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard appealed to US President Barack Obama to commute his sentence and allow him to go home to Israel for Pessah, in a letter hand-delivered to Obama by President Shimon Peres that was obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post on Thursday. [...]

“I hope that my own personal appeal may touch your heart and elicit a compassionate, humanitarian response to my heartfelt request to be sent home to Israel for Passover, the holiday of freedom,” Pollard wrote Obama.

“My release in time to celebrate Passover at home in Israel with my beloved wife would be a welcome gesture of friendship to the Israeli people, an act of solidarity with a staunch and long-time ally of the United States, and a deeply compassionate and humane gift of life to my wife and me.” [...]

“After serving more than a quarter century in some of the harshest prisons in the American penal system, I have had a great deal of time to think and to regret,” Pollard wrote. “I am genuinely and sincerely sorry for the offense I committed in passing classified information to Israel. My actions were wrong and I deeply regret that I did not find a legal way to act upon my concerns for Israel.”

Pollard raised the legal arguments for his release about his sentence being disproportionate, deferring to the opinion of experts who have written the US president, such as former CIA director James Woolsey, former White House counsel Bernard Nussbaum, and former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee Dennis DeConcini, who were aware of the contents of the classified material Pollard passed to Israel.

The Israeli agent also issued a personal appeal for himself, noting his own deteriorating health and that of his wife, Esther, who has been fighting cancer.

“My devoted wife, Esther, whom I met and befriended as a teenager, has been faithfully doing everything she can to help me and to bring about my freedom,” he wrote. “When she married me in prison years ago, she never imagined that after more than two decades the honeymoon she dreamed of would still be delayed. Mr. President, as much for her sake as for my own, I beseech you to please send me home now, to the first happy holiday that the two of us will ever have.”

Pollard concluded the letter by writing that “in light of the above compelling health and family reasons, and with the principled support of so many senior American officials, I implore you to act expeditiously to commute the more than 25 years that I have already served in prison to time served.”

Esther Pollard expressed a deep sense of hurt and bewilderment on Wednesday at the lack of response by Obama to her husband’s letter and to the personal request by Peres to release her husband ahead of Pessah, the festival of freedom.

“Obama’s utter indifference to Peres’s request was very puzzling, but it has to be seen in context of the president’s indifference to all of the requests he has received to release Jonathan Pollard after 26 years in prison, not only from Peres and Netanyahu but also from ranking senior American officials,” she said.

“The president’s resounding silence in the face of all of these requests leaves no room for any doubt. Clearly it is nothing personal against Jonathan, but it is, without a doubt, a devastating slap in the face to Israel and Jews worldwide.”
Poor Jonathan Pollard, having to spend time in jail for committing espionage and treason.  He's lucky he wasn't put to death for his outrageous crimes.  People in the know claim Pollard may have done more to harm the national security of the United States than any other single individual.

$20 says Obama capitulates and eventually releases this SOB, right before an invasion of Iran.  Any takers?

  1. Hi John. My first thought was to say I'd be bettin' with you, not against. But on second thought, they love to have an attention-getting case like the Pollard case to distract most people from the bigger truth:

    Every "expert" mentioned in the article and "so many senior American officials" spy for Israel every day. Many of them are jews, and the nonjews share info daily with jews who are their staff members, advisors, lobbyists, lawyers, donors, club buddies, bankers, etc.

    So, I would take the bet, that is, if I were a bettin' man.

    you know what, I would not put my money on an invasion on Iran. But I would put money on the release of Pollard.

  3. Hi James and Genie!

    I agree with your assessment James, Israeli interests run the US government, and they have eyes and ears everywhere, not to mention their companies, many of them linked to Mossad and Israeli intelligence/military, have all the contracts for security, surveillance, electronic monitoring, ect. It's absurd how much influence they have over this government.
