Could someone explain to me why we are bending over backwards for this guy Grapel. If reports are true that he is an anarchist, involved in violent demonstrations against Tzahal, is vehemently against a Jewish State for the Jewish People and that he doesnt identify himself as a Jew or part of the Jewish People, then why are we releasing prisoners for him. If all this is true, then let the US or his family worry about him, but it shouldnt be an Israeli Government issue. Our concerns should be focussed on a true hero for Am Yisrael and someone who actually worked for the Mossad and is still languishing after 26 years in a so-called friendly jail of America. The arrogance touched with a nice dose of antisemitism in regards to Pollard by the US administration is unbelievable and totally unacceptable. Forget Grapel. Focus on Pollard, especially now that the focus has been taken off Shalit.
