    Pollard is a weasel who grabbed all the American secrets that he could. He sold what he could to Israel. He also approached South Africa and Czechoslovakia and tried to peddle some American classified material. He ran for cover when he was discovered and tried every lieing trick he knew to avoid having to pay for his crime. Vanunu, on the other hand, is a man of conscience. He merely told the truth, in spite of certain jail time. He got no money for his acts and he has faced continual harrassment from Israeli authorities, even after 18 years in prison. To compare Pollard to Vanunu is to compare a rat to a lion. Israel has payoff money in excess of a million dollars waiting for Pollard. Since it is a crime in America to profit as the result of criminal activity, I think Pollard is not going anywhere until his sentence is completed. Life is Life....
