Pollard was a spy; he got caught, was tried, convicted and sentenced. There is no doubt he spied and badly hurt the US. Remember the saying, 'Against my enemies I can myself defend but heaven protect me from a friend." His sentence should have no bearing on the US relationship with Israel; which is a relationship of strong convenience. We cannot completely trust the Israelis nor should they completely trust us. Israel did not trust and Pollard became a willing victim of that mistrust. That he is ill and might die changes nothing. He should have thought of that when he started spying on US.
