    He was a person who would sell his nation out to anyone who wold pay him, and did. Israel was just one of many governments Pollard approached and only one of who he sold the most critical secrets of signals intel, communications intel, electronic espionage, and how the US collected intelligence by agents in denied territory. Pollard's indiscriminate sale of information ended in the death of American intel assets in the Soviet Union and elsewhere. Israel makes a damning argument about it's willingness to sell out America and reward the worst traitor it has had since Benedict Arnold. Israel should do itself a favor. Stop reminding Americans of just how cheaply Israel sold out America and how many of our intelligence operatives died because of his treason. Any nation which love Jonathan Pollard is a mortal enemy of the United States. That alone should be all that Israel need know to act in a prudent fashion to preserve the essential relationship between Israel and the USA. Pollard murdered US agents. Netanyahu murders the relationship between America and Israel. Pollard is a traitor to America and Netanyahu is a traitor to Israel. Either of them would sell anything and anyone for what they want, in Pollards case it was money, Bibi is a prostitute to power. Save the relationship between our nations. Send Bibi to jail where he belongs.
