    Israel has no moral rights whatsoever, much less for release of Pollard. Pollard is a US citizen and a traitor. Palestinians are prisoners of an occupying power in violation of international law. Israel holds 11,000 Palestinians many with no charges. According to EU Parliament resolution of 4 Sept'08, among the 11,000 are hundreds of women and children, most arrested in the occupied West Bank. According to Convention of Rights of the Child, a child is defined as under age 18. Palestinian children are treated as adults at 16 and often kept in inappropriate conditions. Around 1,000 prisoners are held 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. Mistreated women prisoners do not have access to adequate medical care.
