One of the most disgraceful episodes in the US / Israel / Jewish interaction has been the extended incarceration of Jonathon Pollard by the US.
Quite apart from the fact that his almost 30 years imprisonment is 3 times as long as anything equivalent, the saga of his sentencing has all the markings of a US double cross. This double cross appeared to be chiefly instigated by Caspar Weinberger, as part of his anti-Israel stance contributed to by his animosity at having a Jewish sounding name despite not being Jewish. However, as in all these things, we don’t really know the full story, and it may well be a lot more murky and political… including Pollard’s betrayal by an “incompetent” lawyer.
As in all this, Israel should not put its faith in princes, including American ones.
