1. this man is a traitor!
Sally Forth ,   Jerusalem   (10.31.11)
Manbar sold (for high personal profit) chemical information to the Iranians. Information which could be used against the citizens of the State of Israel during war time. and that's it just 14.5 years! What have we come too?
2. vienna
brien duffy ,   jackson, u.s.a.   (10.31.11)
manbar, the ghosts of vienna will haunt you forever.
3. A story and case that stinks to high heaven
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, DC USA   (10.31.11)
This article provides just a hint of this man's treachery, but nothing of the story (and the stupidity) behind it. It's covered in Bergman's "The Secret War With Iran" and begins with Israel's desperation for information about Ron Arad. Manbar was permitted to do deals with contacts in Iran in hopes that such info would be forthcoming. Iran got access to some dangerous technology; Israel got nothing. Others involved should have been prosecuted but weren't. If the Shalit trade weren't enough to demonstrate that Israel goes stupid when captives are involved, the Manbar affair proves it.
4. Manbar gets 16 years for treason and the femaleKam gets 4.5!
Rivkah   (10.31.11)
5. #3 correct and even more......
mba ,   Israel   (10.31.11)
The lengthy sentence and parole denial was a direct result of security agency revenge. For those of you who don't remember, two agents were killed (car accident I think) in the pursuit of Manbar and for this reason his parole was denied again and again. In this secret war, if you play then you should be ready to pay.
6. wait this bloodsucking traitor of his own gets 12 yrs?
hippocrates ,   earth   (10.31.11)
what? the leftist controlled court system is bleeding israel dry, in case you haven't noticed.
7. Confirmation
Abraham Nachmias ,   Petach Tikva IL   (10.31.11)
Every single day I am more and more sure that Israeli Legal System is probably very informated, but has no idea about what justice is! That's the reason why nobody has respect for Mrs. Beinish and her partners!
8. maybe
Maybe this was part of the Shalit deal?
9. He should nwever be released!
