Israelis think to minimize Pollards crimes because he only gave the information to Israel. There are a couple of problems with that. First of all, Pollard ended up giving massive amounts of American secrets including a lot of stuff that had nothing to do with Israel. This kills the idea that Israel was "entitled" to the information. The second problem is that, once classified material is out of the system which protects it, and particularly when it falls into the hands of foreign agents, then it all must be treated as if it has been compromised to the enemy. In giving material to Israeli agents, Pollard forced America to respond as if he had given it to Russia. Pollard should never be released from prison. He betrayed the people who trusted him and paid him to guard their secrets. Instead Pollard sold them.
