Mossad and GoI instigated demonstration to free an American traitor, who happened to work for them and other countries for the money, when he was caught. That was long before Israel gave him citizenship, as a further reward. Israel could send Pollard's spy masters to the United States for a full debriefing. That would be a real confidence building measure - but for obvious reasons, will never happen. Therefore, the American traitor Pollard stays where he is. Stop the whining. If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. Never a thought for those who forfeited their lives in their service to the United States, due to his treachery and treason.
