Jonathan Pollard, the Jewish American who worked as a US Navy intelligence analyst until he was arrested for spying on the United State of America for the Jewish state of Israel, and who in 1987 received a life sentence for his crimes against the US, was released today from prison. So much for a life sentence!
Israel has been trying for decades to win Pollard’s release from prion. Many people believe Barack Obama agreed to release him in an attempt to smooth things over with Israel after the nuclear agreement with Iran went through against Israel’s demands that it be stopped.
A condition of Pollard’s release from prison is that he remain in the US on parole for five years. Pollard wants to move to Israel and Israeli PM Netanyahu wants him to be able to do so. Netanyahu is putting pressure on US politicians to allow Pollard to immediately move to the Jewish state.
Since Pollard and Netanyahu both want Pollard to live in Israel, the US should demand a prisoner swap. Israel can handover the hero who warned the world about Israel’s very real nuclear weapons of mass destruction, Mordechai Vanunu, in exchange for Pollard.
Mordechai Vanunu worked at Israel’s Dimona nuclear plant in the 1980s, around the same time Pollard was stealing military secrets from the US and giving them to Israel. In 1986 Vanunu told the British media all about Israel’s secret nuclear plant that was churning out atomic bombs. Vanunu was eventually kidnapped by Jewish terrorists in the Mosad, taken to Israel, put on trial and sentenced to 18 years in an Israeli prison, with more than 11 of those years being in solitary confinement. (Israel’s actions against Vanunu show the truth to this statement from the French Deist, Voltaire: “It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.”) He was released in 2004 with very strict restrictions which prohibit him from talking to foreigners and prohibit him from leaving the Jewish state. He has been rearrested several times and charged with violating those restrictions.
Vanunu is very outspoken in spite of threats from the Israeli government. For example, he said in an interview with the London-based al-Hayat newspaper that the Israeli secret intelligence organization, the Mossad, assassinated US President John F. Kennedy because President Kennedy “exerted pressure on then head of government, David Ben-Gurion, to shed light on Dimona’s nuclear reactor.” President Kennedy was the last US President to demand Israel open is nuclear program to inspection.
In inadvertently Vanunu is shedding light on the excessive Jewish influence on the media in America. This is very important and can help people to see why the world is presented to them as it is.
Winning Mordechai Vanunu’s freedom from Israel by trading Pollard for Vanunu would be the right thing to do. Unfortunately, that makes it less likely the US politicians from both parties will do it.
