Reader comment on item: Libyan Raid Didn't Employ Vietnam's Lessons

Submitted by John Sherman (United Kingdom), Sep 20, 2003 at 16:49

While browsing the Jonathan Pollard websit a couple of weekends ago my attention was drawn to an article in The Jewish Week by James D. Besser "Pardon Me" concerning Jonathan Pollard and the conflict within the Jewish Community for the responsibility for Pollard's release from prison. I'm a London born Jew now retired and living on England's South Coast. I therefore would like to make you and your readers aware of the deal that has been done for Jonathan Pollard's indiscretions: between the USA and the State of Israel.

In the nineteen-eighties when I was involved in the fringe commodity business, having given up successfully trading as a London fashion manufacturer and importer-exporter of ladies jeans, I was invited to the Israeli Embassy in London 9th August 1985 to meet Alon because of my known West German contact (AB) who worked for the international conglomerate ‘S' - who hold many country/states secrets - in Munich.. AB had been the overseer of the newly installed Nigerian embassy wireless system that connected some 30 Nigerian Embassies abroad and the Libyan wireless system that controlled the lethal Libyan missile defence system on the shores of Tripoli.

The meeting in the Israeli embassy in London led me, at Mossad's behest, to Munich 19th October 1985 to recruit my West German contact (AB) by him declaring his commercial willingness to help Israel by obtaining copy of his West German passport, which he agreed to and in turn I delivered to Alon in the West London Hilton on my return from Munich.

At Mossad behest, I flew again to Munich via Dússeldorf the last day in February 1986 on BA 748C and LH 958C to meet my German contact (AB) to escort him over the nearby German-Austrian border to meet with Mossad agents in Salzburg the night of Ist and the morning of 2nd February 1986 when the Libyan wireless codes where handed over to Mossad agents, one being Alon. Consequently the US naval raid on Libya (the Pentagon codename 'Operation Prairie Fire) was enabled 24th March 1986 when navy-jets from the aircraft-carries USS Saratoga, Coral Sea and America of US Sixth Fleet crossed Gadiffi's self-imposed ‘Line of Death' in the Gulf of Sidra to curb terrorism without loss to the Fleet. Alas the raid was swept under the carpet to appease the Arab World and the long-arm of the USA was thus allowed to be buried/forgotten.

My reason for disclosing the above is that on the 1st January 1987 in the Tel Aviv Hilton a ranking Mossad officer (MP), Alon's controller personally gave me to understand that Israel was obliged to trade the Libya wireless codes for Jonathan Pollard spying on America. Therefore, there is surely no need for further conflict to 'square the circle' within the Jewish communities for the release of Jonathan Pollard from prison as the deal for his indiscretions has been done between the USA and the State of Israel in 1985/6.

Yours truly John Sherman, Dorset, England.
