I consider it very difficult to sincerely celebrate the "release" of Jonathan Jay Pollard from American prison, since he is still a prisoner. The only differences are that his prison is larger, more open and he can have home-cooked food.
Pollard was not set completely free, so he still has to check in regularly with a parole officer and can be returned to prison for poor behavior. He is not permitted to leave the United States for five years, to give interviews. Pollard is required to wear an electronic bracelet at all times for GPS tracking of his whereabouts and to be subject to unfettered monitoring and inspection of his computers as well as those of any employer who chooses to hire him......The lawyers wrote that the conditions were illegal, because they violate a federal statute, federal regulations, and the constitution, which strictly constrain the imposition of conditions on parolees. They said monitoring and tracking conditions imposed on Pollard were most commonly imposed on pedophiles, stalkers and similarly dangerous felons who must be closely supervised at all times for the protection of their victims. (Jerusalem Post)
The unprecedented and continued punishment of Pollard can only be attributed to the fact that he's Jewish and gave security information to Israel, which is and has been since before the time of his crime American's official ally. Now, compare Pollard's treatment with the warm embrace United States President Barack Hussein Obama is offering the Arab Muslim refugees sic from Syria and other Arab countries...

Jews, come home to Israel!!

What are the conditions for Mordechai Va'anunu? The "Nuclear Spy" who sold security secrets about Israel to our enemies? I wonder if Pollard's are much worse. Hey! Maybe we should trade Vaanunu for Pollard, since one doesn't want to live here and the other does.

Ye'he Sh'mey Raba Mevorach, are you saying that Israel is the enemy of the United States? There is no comparison between the two crimes.
CR, no comprendo.

Excellent Batya and you are 100% correct! This is motivated by pure unadulterated ANTI-SEMITISM at its worst! No other excuse for this! But, at least he has his dear wife Esther by his side. And, we can only pray that the next President may make all of these conditions null and void and allow him to make aliya and COME HOME! Hashem in any event can work wonders and for that we must pray!

Batya said...

NG, thanks, your opinion is valued. What is American justice if Pollard not only got that DISPROPORTIONATE punishment, but now he's being treated like a serial pedophile.

I remembered a statement of a famous rabbi, I do not remember his name right now. But I remember having read a statement that it Mashiach ben Yosef was a secular who repented and since then has not sinned more. It seems to me that Jonathan Pollard since his return in repentance in prison is not the same man. He left renovated with an aura of holiness around him, visible in these pictures. A cheerful look and holy.

I knew he was released and was so happy! Now to learn that he hasn't been returned to Israel. I wrongly assumed that he would go to Israel.

Batya said...

A I do not know if he is holy but he certainly has been abused by the USA.

Keli you rightly assumed. It is the Americans who are wrong.
