    No court in Israel would free an Israeli who betrayed Israel as Pollard betrayed the USA the country of his birth. Israelis merely exasperate Americans with their blindness to the gravity of Pollard's offence and Israel's initiatives in spying on its so called ally. Israelis are ever ready to point the finger at those who resist their self-obsessed view of the world and its obligations to Israel. Instead they should examine themselves instead of forever justifying what is not justifiable.Israel is forever exploiting friendship and clearly they have almost no friends that they haven't used yet.
