Pollard release

Reader comment on item: Pollard Pardon? Not Now

Submitted by Stephen (United States), Feb 24, 2014 at 04:57

Although I've been a voracious Israel advocate for several decades, I have never gotten particularly involved in the Pollard case, feeling various degrees of ambiguity as someone not privy to exactly what type of information was passed, as well as that normal Jewish American guilt of seeming to value Israel over the US.

That being said, as the years have passed, it has become increasingly clear that Pollard was the victim of the incredible antisemitism of much of the Reagan Administration (not Reagan himself, but of course, the well known, well discussed figures).

So, while still not engaging in any activism for his release, I felt hopeful.

However, I FULLY agree with you and do not want any excuse given to this current administration, with it's open antipathy toward Israel, and jews, to make even more unreasonable demands than they have already.
