1. Free Pollard
Rafi ,   Center, Israel   (02.26.13)
NOT! He's a traitor to his country and a spy. We don't need him over here. He cannot be trusted and we certainly don't need another welfare case.
2. Amazing
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.26.13)
The past year's Christmas list of pardons included over 50 major drug dealers -- who peddle death -- but Pollard doesn't rate a pardon.
3. Worse than Dreyfus:
desi ,   planet mars   (02.26.13)
when the injustice of the imprisonment of Dreyfus was suspected, the french and the jews rose to the challenge; eventually he was declared innocent, reinstalled in the military and fought for his country in world war 1. Justice prevailed. In Pollard's case, nobody (specially coward jews) dares to talk and the man is set to die in prison!!! There is no reaction in America before a massive injustice! this is a lot worse tha Dreyfus!!!!!
4. He sold his county's secrets for filthy lucre-injustice ?
miki ,   tampa   (02.26.13)
Free him due to time served free him since he is so ill free him before he dies but please no Dreyfus and no injustice-don't prejudice your claim as miscarriage of justice that will only boomerang-No American President can be expected to accept a phony denunciation of the American judicial system. If there was a mis-trial only an American court may decide by no means by a petition however apparently righteous and signed by foreigners who profited from his betrayal.

7. absolutely not
courtney ,   usa   (02.26.13)
he shouldnt taste freedom for even one day
8. to #2
Adam ,   Cork   (02.26.13)
He doesn't get a pardon because of the extent of damage he caused to the US. The damage he done is far greater than from those who were pardoned. Its unfortunate you're probably an American citizen, dual-loyalty can be a terrible thing. A man like Pollard deserves to rot in his jail cell.
9. It is unbelievable the arrogance of the jewish lobby & popul
USA   (02.26.13)
That they can demand the President release a convicted prisoner, just because he is a jew. Pollard stole many items that did not pertain to israel or isreal security. US war plans to respond to a USSR attack on Europe, East Europe & USSR inteligence netword, cypher code, communication methods. All the time he was an American citizen. All of the material stolen was sold by israel to China and USSR. Pollard did it for money> He did not become an israel citizen until 4 -5 years after he was jailed. Instead of believing all the hasbara & brainwashing jews should try to learn the truth. Stop whining,

11. #8 adam Prove It!
State your case, if you can. Your knee-jerk reaction attests to your IQ. Pollard turned over Information to Israel that the American government Should Have Passed On To Israel! No one died, no breach of us security ever happened, no American secrets exposed? Why a life sentence? Because he is an example Not To Cross USA. Period end of story!
12. American judical system
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (02.26.13)
the best joke on the world. They infect the whole world with their moronic laws. For example freedom of speech is guaranteed by US constitution. The neo nazi and antisemitic propaganda is also guaranteed by US , as hundreds of nazi websites spread the world, including Hungary from US servers.
13. We need 65000 American Jewish signatures
Sheik rattle & roll ,   USA   (02.26.13)
to keep that traitor locked up. If he is some how released he should be placed on house arrest in the States for the next 20 years under strict orders that he should have no contact with any foreigners etc. We should name that the VANUNU act. Pollard was an American government employee that betrayed the American people. In America we separate church/religion from state. My interpretation no special favors to Pollard because of his religion. You betray your country you should rot.
14. Re: # 1 - disgusting
He is not a traitor - but his American persecutors are! You may oppose this, but changing your usual American address to Israeli so suddenly does nothing for your credibility which has long ago been lost as as an enemy of Israel. You are American. Stay out of this, self-hating jews don't count!
15. # 2 ,...
split ,   US   (02.26.13)
On the top of all those Billions we lost to undue Polard's 'activity' he's responsible for outing and death of dozens of US intel assets in Soviet block that ended up on the end of the rope or in front of an execution squads looking at gun barrels ,...

She/they don't give or ever did a crap about their 'loyalty' to US or any other host country they live. It's their trademark ,...

Leon ,   Grand Rapids USA   (02.26.13)
Obumbler doesn't care what the Jews say. He's got their votes no matter what he does.
18. # 6, Hi Nethanel !
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (02.26.13)
Thank you for the link, it worked and I just signed it ! Gruß nach Gush Etzion !
19. Stop that damn begging
Cameron ,   USA   (02.26.13)
Pollard & the evil sheikh will continue to sit in their respective cages.
20. 63,000 Israelis
Harold ,   USA   (02.26.13)
President Obama or any President probably listens if the 63,000 were pure US citizens who have one passport only.
21. I signed it, too!
Gábor Fränkl ,   Bp, Hungary   (02.26.13)
Thanks Nethanel and also Christian!
22. #14
Harold ,   USA   (02.26.13)
#1 is hundred percent right. Pollard is a huge traitor and has to stay in the big house. Try not to interfer in US internal laws and policies.
23. #11
adam ,   cork   (02.26.13)
He stole nuclear secrets from the US, which Israel then sold to the USSR for increased emigration quotas. just one reason why he deserves to rot where he is. There are plenty more,
24. Obama will use Pollard as a bargining chip
zionist forever   (02.26.13)
In peace process talks Obama will probably dangle Polllard in front of Bibis eyes when Abbas demands concessions. Bibi makes a major concession and in exchange Obama will release Pollard which will allow Bibi to say I am making these concessions but look what I am getting in return. Unless its for use as a bargaining chip then there is not a chance in hell Obama will release Pollard no matter how many Israelis sign petitions. Pollard committed a crime in the US not Israel so if Pollard is going to get a presidential pardon it will be based on if Obama wants is willing to give it not because Israelis want it.
Cheryl ,   Chicago, IL   (02.27.13)
Jonathan Pollard must be freed. This should have been done a long time ago. Terrorists and REAL criminals are free, yet Jonathan Pollard is still incarcerated. This is a clear case of anti-Semitism. Don't think Jews won't take this sitting down. We've been "nice and civil" for too long.
26. Pollard Petition
Cheryl ,   Chicago, IL   (02.27.13)
63,000 Israelis signed, I signed and you can expect thousands and thousands more worldwide. Pres. Obama: We expect YOUR part in the Peace Process by showing your support in freeing Pollard.
27. Americans most antisemitic in world!
what else do you expect from the USA? Most antisemitic country stopped Jewish refugees escaping there in WW2 .
28. # 14
Rafi ,   Center, Israel   (02.27.13)
I've lived in Israel practically my entire life, served in the army, wife served in the army, and kids served in the army. Next time, be more careful. Your ignorance is showing. Pollard betrayed his own. He is NOT an Israeli. He is an American. PERIOD.
