Yes, Pollard committed espionage on behalf of ISrael and deserved to get jail time. No one disputes that. However, if you read the book "Miscarriage of Justice:the Jonathan Pollard Story" by Mark Shaw, and compare the sentence he got (life imprisonment) compared to all those who spied for other friendly powers (e.g, Britain, Greece, Egypt, Ecuador, the Phillipines, Saudi Arabia, China, South Korea, Ghana, and a host of others), NONE of them got anything like this kind of heavy sentence! The second worst sentence was 14 years for someone who spied for Greece. Pollard has served 25 years to date, or 4 times the average sentence already! Enough is enough. Read the book for details.
