    Pollard is a traitor. And if you want him released, so are you. Israel holds 11,000 Palestinians, many with no charges. According to EU Parliament resolution of 4 September 2008, of the 11,000 prisoners, there are hundreds of women and children, most arrested in the occupied West Bank. According to the Convention of Rights of the Child, a child is defined as under age of 18. Palestinian children are treated as adults at age 16 and often kept in inappropriate conditions. Around 1,000 prisoners are detained on "administrative detention orders," without charge, trial or rights of defense, and detention orders are often prolonged for years. Human Rights reports state Palestinian prisoners are subject to abuses and torture. Even 48 elected members of Palestinian Legislative Council are in prison. The Resolution expressed concern that Palestinian women subjected to mistreatment have lack of access to health care. Any supporter of Pollard is an enemy of the US. That includes you.
