Good of Mr. Lipman to take Israeli citizenship and serve in the Kenesset. That is of course his choice. Pollard also made a choice to spy on America for which he was paid by Israel. It continues to amaze me that Israeli politicians are pushing Pollard's release to the detriment of their relations with the US and many American Jews who prefer to see Pollard rot in prison. Better Lipman and his cronies should be giving Obama the greatest welcome ever afforded to a visiting head of state including a permanent freeze on the settlement enterprise. Total US aid to Israel is now in the vicinity of $115B and growing.
