Wow pollard sure is a touchy subject. 1. Yes. He spied. It's a crime. He should do time. 2. Those who want him released generally point to the fact that he received far more severe sentencing than other US citizen spies who actually gave sensitive US information... 3. We should be clear what he did do. He gave Israel info on Arab troop movements. 4. There were no "400 mossad operatives rounded up..." that is a myth. One guy argued it was true. His agency said he was making stuff up. He wrote his own report and then "leaked it" to the press hoping to get his opinion validated. It got repeated, but no validation.
