  1. I guess Joe Biden and Joe Lieberman are eating crow this morning. Remember, it was them who said regarding Pollards release, NOT OVER MY DEAD BODY. You Jewish Democrats have very short memories. Good luck with Hillary.

  2. Agree with number 2
    He admitted to shopping the intelligence around to other countries besides Israel
    It never makes us look good when we publicly take up the cause of the guilty
    I never get involved with these cases
    Not Pollard not the boys in Japan
    It’s a chillul hashem to publicize these things. Any wheeling and dealing should have been kept behind closed doors

  3. Sally, take your meds and be quiet. Goyim will always hate us just because we exist – kissing up often makes them hate us even more.

  4. #2 & #4, Nobody is turning him into a hero! Yidden are happy he was freed! Whether or not he committed a crime is not the discussion – HE CERTAINLY DID MORE TIME THAN ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL who committed similar crimes. Additionally, although he did not the authority to pass the info, all agreed then that info was extremely crucial to an ally and by alliance agreement it was coming to them. He wasn’t authorized to pass it: so for that he had to sit for life? 11 years in solitary confinement?
    That’s ridiculous and an aberration of American law, as described by all the legal experts who have so toiled to gain his release all these years!
    Do some thinking and a little teshuvah to go along!
