No Clemency for a spy!

"...Obama should remind Netanyahu that Israel is responsible for Pollard’s fate. In 1984, Pollard was an unsolicited walk-in who believed the United States was not properly sharing defense information with its ally and offered documents to the Israelis. He did not want to be paid for his services, but his Israeli handler insisted he take money to become a professional spy.israeli officials should have turned him over to US law enforcement when he first approached them. Not only did Israel’s manipulation of Pollard cast doubt on Israel’s willingness to help the United States; it also struck a cruel blow against American Jews, who have long had to combat the slur of being unreliable Americans torn between dual loyalties....."
