    And the difference between them is? The U.S. has repeatedly stated that Pollard is still a security risk. Clearly Pollard is more analogous to Vanunu than Sbnwden -- those saying the Snowden revelations of U.S. spying on Israel should force Pollard's release. Much is missing in their reasoning. Pollard, and his foolish Israeli handlers, came close to destroying the Israel-U.S. relationship. If not for the Pollard Commission in the Knesset finding the culprits, there could have been irreparable damage. At the time, the handlers had the chutzpah to believe that AIPAC would guaranty there would be no repercussions if Pollard came to light. Israel cannot afford to take the American support for granted. Yes, it is solid and almost impregnable, but the almost must be kept in mind.
