ed note–in the event, likely or not, there are those unfamiliar with just who Jonathon J. Pollard was/is, a brief CV.
Pollard, an American Jew acting on what he said was the ‘racial imperative’ of supporting Israel, used his high-security clearance position as an intelligence analyst in the US Navy in stealing/selling/transferring as many as one million (1,000,000) pages of the most highly-classified material that exists within the US intelligence community (Secret Compartmented Intelligence) to the Jewish state. He is considered by those within the US Intelligence community to be the most notorious and dangerous spy in American history, even more dangerous in his betrayal than the Rosenbergs (also Jews acting on the ‘racial imperative’ of betraying the Gentile nations foolish enough to host them) who sold America’s nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union.
As a result of Pollard’s treason, as many as 1,000 people working as agents/assets for the US intelligence community lost their lives, to say nothing of the severe danger to which hundreds of millions of Americans were subjected and remain so to this day. The secrets he stole and then sold to Israel included those dealing with the National Security Agency’s means and methods of conducting signals intelligence needed for protecting America from acts of war including not only a nuclear attack from the USSR or China, but as well, terrorist attacks such as those taking place on 9/11.
In fact it can be argued that it was due in large part to Pollard’s treason that Israel was able to bypass much of the NSA’s methods that would have picked up on ‘chatter’ taking place between Israel and her patsies preceding the attacks of 9/11 that doubtless would have given America a ‘heads up’ as to what was headed her way.
When Pollard was being interviewed by the authorities following his arrest, he stated plainly what every potentate throughout history has learned as a result of hosting within their nation those of Pollard’s ‘pedigree’ and going all the way back to Egypt’s Pharaoh in the book of Jenesis–
‘The US government should never give security clearances to Jews, because when called upon, we will do whatever is asked of us by Israel’.
Basically validating what has been the time-honored/time-proven axiom throughout history on that issue, which is that those of the Hebraic persuasion are by the very nature of their religion, the culture produced by that ‘religion’ and the clannish MO that guides their activities, treacherous, untrustworthy, and dangerous to the well-being of all Gentile nations, as a certain guy named Saul of Tarsus once said in a letter he once wrote to some friends of his living in Thessaloniki.
Now, as it relates to the here and now–
Hear for yourself the HURRICANE of protest taking place within the American Jewish community concerning Pollard’s release from prison and the lifting of his parole restrictions, thus allowing him to go to Israel where he will be thoroughly wrung of every drop of intelligence information he memorized while working as an analyst. Hear for yourself the HOWLS of indignation taking place within the American Jewish community over the deaths of 1,000 persons working for US intelligence and how the blood shed in terminating those people stains Pollard’s hands to this day.
As silent as death itself.
And this in an age where a 90-year-old man accused of being a ‘Nazi guard’ at some death camp 8 decades ago can be hauled out of his bed at 2 a.m. in handcuffs and taken to jail over the flimsiest of ‘evidence’ brought against him, yet a convicted spy whose treason not only resulted in 1,000 people being killed, but as well, doubtless played an integral part not only in the events of 9/11 but as well continues to leave America exposed and in danger arrives in the Jewish state and is welcomed on the tarmac by the same Prime Minister who said that the deaths of 3,000 Americans on 9/11 was ‘good’ in the value contained therein for generating ‘immediate sympathy’ for Israel’.
Now, as far as our deranged Hebraic essayist goes–
If the name Ariel Nathan Pasko has a familiar ‘ring’ to it on the part of the readership here at TUT, it should. Of the many things he has scribed revealing the truly demented and deranged nature of a brain that has been cooked in its own fluids by the virus of Judaism that afflicts him, the most noteworthy was the piece he wrote immediately following the Satanic black mass known as ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom’ officiated by the little monkey in the White House George W. Bush where Pasko writes as follows–
‘Of course this war against Iraq and Saddam Hussein is for us, and we already knew that this war is for us – i.e., the Jews and Israel. Our sages throughout the ages have explained the Torah, telling us that everything that happens in the world is for the benefit of the Jewish People. Simply put another way, if all the world is a stage, then the Jews – and especially those in the Land of Israel – are the lead actors on the stage of history, and the goyim, i.e. the gentiles–have mere supporting roles, while the evil-doers are props and background scenery. As our tradition states, G-D – the great playwright – created the world for the sake of the Jewish People, and it is our responsibility to implement the Torah – absolute morality and the blueprint of creation – in it.’
‘Of course this war is for the Jews and Israel, and instead of hiding from the accusation or crying, “anti-Semitic slur”, we should gratefully acknowledge what the Master of the Universe is doing to our enemies for us…Yes, the war in Iraq is for the Jews…’
Of particular interest in the piece is the following–
‘But even with his release, the Americans still have some Teshuva (repentance) to do.’
As well as–
‘And that’s why I say America still has a day of reckoning to come…’
But that’s not all, as Pasko goes even further in saying that–
‘What a fine concerned and selfless example to young Israelis Pollard would be as President of Israel.’
Ariel Natan Pasko for Israel National News
About a month ago, five years to the day after Jonathan Pollard was paroled (with severe restrictions) from the federal penitentiary, the US Parole Commission issued a certificate terminating parole and removing the restrictions that were imposed on him. He had served an excessive thirty years (certainly when compared to others convicted of similar or worse offenses) of his injust life sentence, for transmitting classified information to Israel (convicted of Espionage, not Treason), in helping a friendly state.
Now he and his wife Esther, have come to Israel.
Minister of Diaspora Affairs, Omer Yankelevich, tweeted Tuesday night: “Jonathan, how good it is that you’ve come home.”
It’s been claimed that Pollard only turned over to the Israelis intelligence information that the Americans were obligated to pass on to Israel, under their security and defense cooperation agreements, but were holding back. Therefore, embarrassing the Americans.
But even with his release, the Americans still have some Teshuva (repentance) to do.
Many public officials and personalities expressed gratitude on the day parole termination had finally come. Some had even raised the issue of the cruel treatment by the Americans, and betrayal by Israeli officials in the past.
The Women in Green movement, which struggled for Pollard’s release for years, welcomed the American decision not to extend Pollard’s restrictions.
Movement leaders, Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, emphasized that the decision marks long years of injustice imposed on Pollard by the American legal system. “Every day that Pollard was imprisoned or confined was a day of grave injustice…The day Pollard comes to Israel will be a holiday for the entire Jewish people.”
“The entire State of Israel owes him a lot and it is doubtful whether it will be able to return to him a little of what it received from him, but it is its duty to do everything to give him all the best it has, they stated.”
That’s why I propose nominating Pollard for President of Israel. Elections by the Knesset members will be held in July 2021. What better way to celebrate his homecoming.
Katsover and Matar also said, “The State of Israel accepts Jonathan with great love…this slightly reduces the moral flaw, that clung to it, when it abandoned him and closed its gates to him.”
Former Defense Minister and Yamina Party Chairman Naftali Bennett welcomed the removal of restrictions on Jonathan Pollard at the time saying, ‘and the sons shall return to their borders (Jeremiah 31)’ and adding that ‘The State of Israel owes a deep debt to Jonathan Pollard who gave us over 30 years of his life, and we are waiting to welcome him and embrace him here, in the land of Israel which is his home, as soon as possible.’
So, now that Pollard has landed in Israel, Bennett would probably back a movement to draft Pollard for President of Israel.
Yamina Knesset Faction Chairwoman MK Ayelet Shaked also spoke out when Pollard’s parole was terminated, “In the 19th Knesset, I served as Chairwoman of the lobby for the return of Pollard and as Justice Minister, I continued my activities until his release and thereafter. I sincerely hope that in the near future he and Esther will establish their home in Israel.”
Petach Tikva’s mayor, Rami Greenberg, promised last month to name a square in the city center “Jonathan Pollard Square.” Greenberg also expressed gratitude to the Trump administration for terminating the limitations of Pollard’s parole.
Safed Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, who visited Jonathan Pollard in prison in the United States over the years, told Kan Moreshet last month, “I think that American Jewry should perhaps ask him for forgiveness. In an attempt to be considered kosher Americans, they simply ignored him. They forget that we are each other’s guardians and it’s not possible that they would turn their backs on someone who gave so much of himself for the people of Israel, what a waste.” Well-earned praise, however, goes to US Rabbi Yakov Mencken, head of the Orthodox advocacy group, the Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), who was in constant contact with Pollard.
It’s true, organized American Jewry, fearful of the dual-loyalty accusation, pretty much hid their heads in the sand, while Pollard rotted in prison.
Rabbi Eliyahu then added, “If it were not for the people in Israel who sold him to the Americans, he would not have sat in prison. All the evidence that indicted him and put him in prison for so many years, was given by people in Israel. I heard these things directly from him when I was with him…There are people who were ministers in the government, two of them, who committed this crime, which is why Pollard was in prison. He did everything he did for the people of Israel, for the State of Israel. We should have lain on the fence for him but people preferred to save their skin and sell him out, which is a very serious matter…I did not name names, we are now in a happy time, but there were two people who could have saved him and they did not,” he added.
I’m sure that Shaked and Rabbi Eliyahu would support a movement to make Jonathan Pollard, President of Israel. That would be the real teshuva that the State of Israel could do for him.
Asher Mivzari, an activist prominent in the movement to free Jonathan Pollard, also blamed the Americans, “On the one hand, there is great joy and we are thankful to God that he survived all these thirty difficult years in prison, and another five years under restrictions. On the other hand, it’s late, because he should have been released long ago, even in terms of simple justice. For what he did in the US, you usually get five years in prison, but here there was such a severe punishment, that it was out of all proportion. Even American officials [including those involved with his case] have stated that he should have been released long ago in terms of American justice,” Mivzari pointed out.
And that’s why I say America still has a day of reckoning to come…
Mivzari also noted, the frequent visits of the late Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu to Pollard, “The rabbi visited Pollard ten times and this is something that gave him a lot of strength to hold on and survive throughout all those years. All these years he also did not think only of himself, he was very concerned for the people of Israel, for the State of Israel, for people who were hurt, injured in terrorist attacks and other things. His thoughts were not only about himself. He knew the problems and failures that had happened, but mostly his thoughts were on how to help the people of Israel and the State of Israel and his dream was to come and join the people of Israel and contribute all he can with the rest of his strength and do everything he can.”
What a fine concerned and selfless example to young Israelis Pollard would be, as President of Israel. But not everyone is even happy that Pollard was finally released from all restrictions.
Former PM Ehud Olmert blasted the US government’s decision to nullify Jonathan Pollard’s parole restrictions. He argued, “With all due respect, I would prefer that he not move to Israel. We don’t owe him anything. He was a spy who worked for a lot of money. He was not a Zionist volunteer who came and sacrificed his life.” Olmert is not really the one to talk about taking money.
He continued, Pollard “was an American who loved Israel and worked for a lot of money, spying for Israel. His spying was beneficial [to Israel], but when taking a full account of the damage caused to Israel’s interests as a result of revealing his involvement, it was the harshest in the history of US-Israel relations.”
“The danger of increasing this damage has not ended. If the prime minister will act like he does and have a festive welcoming ceremony for Pollard, we will pay a heavy price when there will soon be a new administration in America,” worried Olmert.
This is a non sequitur, because an incoming Biden administration already is planning a tough time for Israel. Just take a peek at the likely appointments Biden’s going to make, many of them Clinton operatives. A moderate-Left Democrat administration will return Israel to the tone of the Obama years, with newer problems. For example, the Trump Plan’s vision of a Palestinian Arab state was encapsulated in policy for the first time, and for the first time, was formally agreed to, by the current Israeli government.
Yisrael Beytenu leader, Avigdor Liberman, has also criticized Pollard, in an interview with KAN Radio. He said that Israel should not have drafted Pollard as a spy, and that his moving to Israel should not be celebrated.
What has Liberman ever done to promote Israeli security? How far Liberman has fallen from his Hebrew University student days, when he was a campus activist for Rabbi Meir Kahane’s far-right pro-Jewish Kach Movement.
And Yedioth Ahronoth columnist, Nahum Barnea, wrote, “Pollard does not have the heroism of the Nili organization, not even that of Eli Cohen. Have some proportion.” He, also opposes making Pollard a “national hero.”
Well, I don’t agree with Olmert, Lieberman, and Barnea, so much so, that I believe Pollard should be elected President of Israel.
I suggest to Netanyahu, who claimed for years, that he had done all he could to free Jonathan Pollard, take the bold and courageous step of throwing his weight behind Pollard for President of Israel.
The position is largely ceremonial. As head of state, Pollard would represent Israel at conferences, state festivities, etc. The most significant action the president can take is to grant pardons to prisoners, similar to the American president. It’s the perfect “non-partisan” position for him within the Israeli political constellation.
Who could best empathize with the pain of prisoners and their families, to give them a fair shake, and possibly overturn an injustice, than someone who sat in prison unjustly for thirty years, for the security of the Jewish people, and State of Israel?
Jonathan Pollard for President of Israel!
