    Firstly, I called nobody anything, including filthy names or anti-Semites. Secondly, people who did far more harm to the United States, by being actively involved with actual enemies of the US, got off far more lightly than Pollard. Thirdly, it seems exceedingly clear to me that a message is being sent to a certain group of Americans who, in the words of a character in the movie "The Good Shepard", people in the CIA believe to be "guests" in "their" country. I don't want an exception made for Pollard in either extreme, neither leniency nor harshness. My read on what got Pollard in trouble is that he gave Israel the information that allowed it to bomb the PLO headquarters in Tunisia, and the US was thought to have cooperated in the act (and maybe they did!). Once the government had him jailed, they realized the value of having a Jewish spy who could be trotted out, by planting stories (like this one?), every time someone wants to put a little squeeze on Jews in both America and Israel.
