A Quarter of A Century of Punishment and Still Counting, Disproportionate Punishment for Jonathan Pollard

As one of those who remembers too well the Jonathan Pollard saga from day one, I'm saddened and amazed that it has taken over a quarter of a century for others to realize that his punishment is unjust, disproportionate and reeks of anti-Israel and antisemitic sentiment on behalf of the American Government and Justice Department.

I am grateful that finally voices are being heard demanding his release, like from U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm.



Pollard's punishment was worse than excessive. Communist spies got less. I don't understand why his lawyers haven't sued the American Government for prejudicial, racist bias against him. He should be well-compensated for the injustice.

Jonathan suffers in prison because of two manifestations of Jews still in galut. One is the Jews in America reticent to speak out because of fears of being accused of dual loyalty. They should come home. The other is the Golus Government of Israel which is worried about its umbilical cord of civilian and military aid from the US and the veto in the UN, all of which we can do without and be better off rather than have to dance to the tune of the US administration. The US and its allies were silent and refused to let in Jews during the Shoah. Why expect anything different on this issue. Jews, come home and vote to shape up your government!

I saw that on Shabbat paper version. If Pollard's guilty of "treason," then the United States is an enemy of the State of Israel.
