Jonathan Pollard: His Release Should Not Come at a Price (Fraud David Horowitz Opposed Pollard Release)
For the last few days, there’s been news that Jonathan Pollard, the Naval intelligence analyst who was convicted of spying for Israel decades ago, may be released by the Obama Administration in exchange for Israel releasing several hundred more Palestinian terrorist murderers, stopping all Jewish construction in the so-called “territories” (including Jerusalem), and continuing in absurd negotiations with Palestinian terrorists bent on Israel’s and the Jews’ destruction.
My view is that Jonathan Pollard should not be released for a price. And, in this case, the price is too high. Pollard, who is deathly ill, should simply be released. Spying against America is a crime and should be punished. But he’s done far more time than he should have, and he should have been released long ago. No American’s freedom should become a pawn in America’s gambit to get Israel to commit suicide.
Then, there are frauds, like David Horowitz and Newt Gingrich, who claim to be pro-Israel and against anti-Semitism, and who blindly, moronically oppose Pollard’s release. The bread-and-circus-ingesting few Jewish conservatives foolishly continue to buy Horowitz’s crap when he is literally all over the map when it comes to Jews, Islam, anti-Semitism, and anti-White racism.
At a speaking engagement for which they were paid oodles of money by an organization that is a front for the Republican Jewish Coalition (the RINO-JINOs who promote Islamic terrorism and its supporters), Horowitz, Michael Medved, and Jack Abramoff’s co-conspirator rabbi, Daniel Lapin, all openly said on video (I have the video) that they oppose Pollard’s release and that American Jews are not patriots. Actually, Lapin made that statement, and Horowitz said NOTHING! in response to that anti-Semitic statment. Medved was silent, too. Only Ruth Wisse, a brilliant Harvard professor (I own and recommend all of her books!), spoke truth to power and said Pollard should have been released and is still in jail pursuant to an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic agenda. Today, Gingrich–whose show on CNN has like two viewers–tweeted against a Pollard release, even though Pollard is eligible for parole, next year.
Longtime readers know I’ve always endorsed Pollard’s release. We’ve been far harsher on him–because he’s a Jew and because he spied for Israel–than we were on any other spies from friendly countries. In fact, spies from enemy nations like China were treated far better and got lesser sentences. And part of the reason for this is that an anti-Semitic Black judge sentenced him and an even more anti-Semitic, self-hating, anti-Israel Reagan Defense Secretary, Casper Weinberger, insisted on throwing the book at Pollard. (It should be noted that Weinberger, himself, could have faced criminal prosecution and jail time, but Ronald Reagan pardoned him.) Pollard was also blamed for a lot of leaked intelligence that turned out to have been sold by Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen to the Soviets and other enemies. And it should be noted that the intelligence Pollard shared with Israel was intelligence on Iran and other enemies of Israel in the Middle East–intelligence that America was required to give Israel pursuant to intelligence-sharing treaties both countries signed, but only one country (Israel) abided by.
Now, Israel–which has no business negotiating with Palestinians who won’t recognize the Jewish State and who do not speak for HAMAS, anyway–is under pressure from lame duck Obama and Lurch Heinz-Kerry a/k/a Mr. Teresa to continue peace talks. And it’s under pressure to release several hundred more Islamic terrorist murderers who killed Israeli Jews and Christians in cold blood. And it’s under pressure to stop building homes for Jews in Israel’s capital, the eternal Jewish Capital of Jerusalem. If Israel had any cojones whatsoever, it would tell Obama and Kerry where to go. They are lame ducks and they have no power with only 2.5 years left of America’s worst presidency before the next America’s worst presidency of Cankles Rodham Clinton. Israel should do to Obama what Egypt did when Obama protested the removal of the Muslim Brotherhood from power: IGNORE. HIM.
But, no. Instead, Israel is about to make a deal for Jonathan Pollard’s release that comes with a price. And the price is too high. Israel should demand Pollard’s release without any quo. Israel should long ago have demanded Pollard’s release before agreeing to come to any of the many phony bargaining tables it’s come to with the food, while Palestinians and other Muslims came with a fork and a sharpened knife.
Israel should also have never begun its endless one-sided releases of mass murdering terrorists, which I’ve decried for years. Would America release Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, just because an ally demanded it? Well, yeah, I guess we are basically doing that with Gitmo catch and release of hardened killers who return to kill some more. But you get the point. Would the U.S. also start negotiating with Al-Qaeda because an ally demanded it? Why don’t we give Hezbollah Dearbornistan, Dearbornistan Heights, Canton, and all the other cities they are taking over anyway? Why not give Al-Qaeda a state here? Would we say that Blacks can’t build in certain cities in America, just because an ally demanded it? Would America tell Blacks they can no longer live in cities like Nairobi and Soweto because they’re now Islamic land called Al-Schmuds?
Hell no to each and all of these. So why on earth would Israel do these things? It’s moronic. These actions that Lurch Heinz-Kerry demands from Israel while doing Obama’s bidding should be met with laughter and, then, “No way, habibi.”
And none of these things should be done to secure Jonathan Pollard’s release. Jonathan Pollard’s life should not be a political football in the West’s aim to amputate and stab Israel to death. He deserves to be freed.
But not at a price. Not at any price. And definitely not at this price.
