7. BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE! Wake Up America!
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (04.22.08)
It's five minutes to midnight. ’“One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.” —Former Algerian President Houari Boumedienne’s prophetic warning to Europe in a speech at the U.N. In 1974. “Soon we will take power in this country. Those who criticize us now, will regret it. They will have to serve us. Prepare, for the hour is near.” — Belgium-based imam in 1994. “De Morgen”, Oct. 5, 1994. Cited in Koenraad Elst, “The Rushdie Rules”, Middle East Quarterly, June 1998. Alija Izetbegovic stated in the ISLAMIC DECLARATION that: "there can be neither peace nor coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic social and political institutions" An authoritative Muslim stated: "Thanks to your democratic laws we will invade you; thanks to our religious laws we will dominate you." STOP Inciting Children to Murder! “Islam is a revolutionary faith that comes to destroy any government made by man...The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy... —Sayeed Abdul A’la Maududi, ‘Jihad in Islam
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (04.22.08) September 26, 2001 Terror in the U.S. and the Jonathan Pollard case By Larry Dub © 2001 "... thanks to Jonathan Pollard, Israel was ready with gas masks and sealed rooms when Iraq attacked her during the Gulf War... The usual sentence for spying for an ally is 2-4 years... Indeed, the Government's own Victim Impact Statement (VIS), which was submitted to the court prior to sentencing indicated that Pollard's greatest "sin" was that by giving Israel vital security information which permitted the Jewish state to act in its own defense, he had made Israel "too strong" and thus angered America's "moderate" Arab allies..."
9. U.S INJUSTICE & CRUELTY To Pollard SHOCKED the Europeans
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (04.22.08)
The European Parliament Resolution on Jonathan Pollard September 16, 1993 The European Parliament, 1. noting that Jonathan Pollard, then of the US Navy, was convicted in 1985 of passing classified information to Israel concerning the military activities of Iraq, Syria and other Middle Eastern nations, 2. noting also that the information dealt with the chemical, biological and nuclear arms build- up in these countries and that Pollard considered he had a moral duty to warn Israel of the developing massive threat to its security and to the lives of its people, 3. whereas Pollard has expressed remorse for his action, 4. whereas Pollard, who was not accused of treason, or of intending to harm the US, pleaded guilty under a plea bargain, and was thus convicted and sentenced, without a full trial, to life imprisonment, despite the Government's promise not to seek such a penalty, 5. noting that the sentence imposed on Pollard was grossly disproportionate to those imposed on others by US courts for supplying information to a friendly power (normally from two to four years), 6. shocked that most of Pollard's eight years in prison should have been spent in solitary confinement and underground, 7. astonished that Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, described by one of his Under-Secretaries for Defense as having had 'an almost visceral dislike of Israel', should have sent a message to the trial judge, one hour before the sentencing hearing, asking for the stiffest possible sentence commensurate with Pollard's 'treasonous' (sic) behavior, 8. noting however that Mr. Weinberger stated recently that he thought it was time that Mr. Pollard should be released; aware that Christian and Jewish organizations throughout the world have pleaded for the harsh sentence of life imprisonment to be commuted and that Judge Steve Williams wrote, in a dissenting opinion to an appellate court finding, that 'the government's conduct in this case resulted in a 'complete miscarriage of justice', 1. Urges the US Administration to commute Pollard's sentence to one of time served and to release him immediately; 2. Calls on EPC to intercede with the US government with this end in view; 3. Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission, EPC and the Government of the United States. Voted almost unanimously on 16th September 1993.

10. And here we go again.........
ERIC..... ,   ISRAEL..........   (04.22.08)
Who needs this .Why cant we keep our noses clean?U.S.A are our best friends.Just plain stupidity.
11. Correct title: "Another America jew betraying America"
Seth ,   Oklahoma, OK   (04.22.08)
American jews should not hold senior position with access to sensitive information
12. To #5
David ,   Hartford USA   (04.22.08)
Because the US is a fair-weather friend to Israel. When the Saudi's act up, the US acts like a wuss. I'd want to know if the US modified jets for an Arab country. It probably de-tuned them, but I'd want to know for sure. This guy's been retired for years. Why is the US wasting my tax dollars looking for curious 'friendlies' when there are determined, hatred-filled psychos doing the same thing? I doubt Israel will bomb washington. I can't say the same for jihadi-kissing gov'ts of Pakistan and ilk.
13. #2 USA is the # 1 enemy of Israel
Mark ,   Boston   (04.22.08)
14. #10 USA is Israel's top enemy!
Mark ,   Boston   (04.22.08)
Look how they have treated Pollard.
15. oh what a great discovery !! during 1980's
like more than 20 years ago !! WHAT IS THIS BULL SHIT !?
16. oh mai mai mai !!
17. Israel should had never apologized for Pollard
Keren ,   Israel-SP   (04.22.08)
before finding out the truth.What is that to apologize for something that might be an injustice against Jews? As for the present case,Israel should investigate FIRST on behalf of a citizen to AFTER permit him to be judged. Remember Dreyfus,and other cases, when a great injustice was commited against a man just because he was Jew. I,in principle,don't believe the US's accusation.Israel should defend itself fiercely. This reminds me too, in recent days, the brits putting their nose in Israel's divulgation about its country saying Qumram is not part of Israel;The idiotic govt,instead of rejecting such anomaly,took out the picture!Stupid!
18. Keep your mouth shut!
Merav ,   Poleg   (04.22.08)
Learn from Jonathon Pollard's mistakes Mr Kadish, do a deal with the Americans and keep your mouth shut and you'll be home and free very soon. Act like an ++++hole like Pollard and you'll rot like him!
19. Israel Will Betray This Jew Just Like They Did Pollard.
World Citizen ,   the world   (04.22.08)
Let him go to prison just like the traitor Pollard did. And let them both die in prison.
20. Unusual Report
Brod ,   USA   (04.22.08)
Why would the report treat this case as if Israel is an enemy state? And why would Israel need any nuke secret when it has its own nuke technology? Could there be a latent hand of Anti-Semitism in this report?
22. Israel as ever only interested in itself
Chanalau, Tova ,   London, UK   (04.22.08)
Honour, trust, cooperation with your allies - forget it. This is the Israel whose only principles are: theft, theft and theft. Zionism in a nutshell.
23. It took place between 79 to 85... get real !
Dan ,   Israel   (04.22.08)
US and Israel weren't that good friends back then. also... do you think that there aren't any American agents in Israel ? Those kind of actions are something that happens in every country and by every country. I'm sure that there are many foreign agents in the US... not only Israeli ones.
24. More propaganda
USA   (04.22.08)
The British have spied on the US admittedly. And most Americans worship the ground the Brits walk on. Don't let propaganda pull the two countries that the world is trying to demonize apart.
25. ... and the Jew haters come out of the woodwork
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, DC USA   (04.22.08)
Well, it didn't take long for the likes of Rich (#5) and Seth (#11) to make their appearance. Let's put aside for now that he has been charged, not convicted. Put aside the fact that folks like Szady in Justice have made it their business to seek out Jews in the security sector. I haven't heard you folks say that Catholics (like FBI traitor Hannsen) or Muslims (like Prouty and many others) or Protestants (Ames?) or Chinese should similarly be restricted from security positions. What a bunch of hypocrites. Moreover, I have my doubts that this single person, a mechanical engineer, would have access to such a range of variant technologies (nuclear weapons, fighter jets, air defense), as these tend to be compartmentalized. Finally, the notion that one who allegedly engaged in spying some 25 years ago would now be caught, while those actively engaged in spying today are not, raises suspicions. This is just Day One, people Give it a rest until the facts become more clear. And let's dispense with the nonsense of Jewish disloyalty. It is Jews who created the tradition of praying for the welfare of one's country as far back as Nehemiah.
26. He's 84 yrs old. Why now?
Enzo ,   london,uk   (04.22.08)
27. #21 A trick from the US State Dept.
Mark ,   Boston   (04.22.08)
The USA discredits Israel constantly these days. A perfect example, Jimmy Carter.
28. Why did the USA wait for 20+ years?
Mark ,   Boston   (04.22.08)
This was done to Demonize Israel. No agency would wait 20 years. This was a planned attack against Israel. It is a public relations event!
29. Of all times, why now?
Harley Ben-David ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (04.22.08)
What's the FBI's and DOJ's interest in going after an 84-year old man who committed his (admittedly illegal) deeds over a quarter of a century ago? Again, were US interests really harmed? Who benefits from another Pollard case? What's this got to do with the here & now, war on terror, Iran, Hamas, and so on? Pardon my naiveté, but I just don't get it.
30. No. 11 Seth
NYC Girl   (04.22.08)
What about American NON-Jews like Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen who spied on us for the Soviet Union? Don't give me that bullshit about Jews not having access to sensitive information.
