Jonathan Pollard: A “False Flag” Superstar

Editor’s Note: Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard is set to be released from US federal prison on November 20th – after serving 30 years of his life sentence. America’s loud mouthed right-wing pro-Zionist pundits, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and others have remained extremely quiet about this case because it exposes a gross double standard that exists in Washington DC. Do not under estimate the significance of the Pollard case because – more than any other single incident – absolutely defines the dysfunctional and chronic parasitic condition that still exists between the United States and Israel.

The cult of criminal celebrity has a way of distorting reality and substituting disinformation as a means of subversion.  The idol son Jonathan “Star of David” Pollard is a convicted traitor of the highest magnitude.  

Israeli’s and Israel First Zionists treat this collaborator as a national hero for a simple reason.  Their own loyalty to America is conditional and subordinate to their true allegiance.  The drumbeat for his release from a life sentence in federal prison has never ceased.  The victim card is played as usual, and the facts of history falsified to advance their precious country of choice.  

The politics of disloyalty is rooted in the identity of Zionism and it’s political objectives.  The only faith involved is one in a regime that comes above the United States.

POLLARD: A real American traitor.

The main reason that the Pollard saga raises its ugly head is that another trial balloon is being floated to pardon the mole. Reported in Arutz Sheva Israel Broadcasting Network:  

“Sources in the Sharon’s office have leaked to the media that U.S. President George W. Bush hinted to the Prime Minister that he might pardon Pollard if Sharon follows up with a withdrawal from most of Judea and Samaria following this summer’s planned evacuation of Jews in Gaza and northern Samaria.”

“It was not clear whether the leaks from Sharon’s office were a publicity stunt to win sympathy from the Israel public for the evacuation or whether it is true that the planned visit of Ambassador Ayalon is linked to a Bush promise to free Pollard in return for further evacuations.”

Supporters to free Pollard use the most tortured arguments to liberate their hero.  Ponder this little gem of sophistry from Aish.com.

“Pollard had supposedly given Israel a list of every American spy inside the Soviet Union. On several occasions Soviet agents in New York had posed as Israelis. The CIA reasoned that that was also true in Israel: The Mossad had been infiltrated by one or more Soviet spies. In the trade this is called a “false flag” operation: Your enemy poses as your ally and steals your secrets. In this case, the CIA reasoned in attempting to explain its horrendous losses, Pollard had passed the information to Israel he had stolen, which in turn fell victim to the “false flag” operation. Soviet agents in Israel, posing as Israeli intelligence agents, passed the information to Moscow, which then wiped out American human assets in the Soviet Union.”

The only factual reference in this statement has the Freudian slip – ‘Your enemy poses as your ally and steals your secrets…’

If you have doubts about the commissions of Pollard’s crimes, examine his admissions as stated by Seymour Hersh in The New Yorker Magazine:

“Pollard was paid well by the Israelis: he received a salary that eventually reached twenty-five hundred dollars a month, and tens of thousands of dollars in cash disbursements for hotels, meals, and even jewelry. In his pre-sentencing statement to Judge Robinson, Pollard depicted the money as a benefit that was forced on him. “I did accept money for my services,” he acknowledged, but only “as a reflection of how well I was doing my job.” He went on to assert that he had later told his controller, Rafi Eitan, a longtime spy who at the time headed a scientific-intelligence unit in Israel, that “I not only intended to repay all the money I’d received but, also, was going to establish a chair at the Israeli General Staff’s Intelligence Training Center outside Tel Aviv.”

The central issue isn’t about a disgusting traitor rotting in his cell, but lies in the enmity of Israel towards the national interests of America.  Consider the severe ramifications and direr consequences from the maintaining favorable status with Israel. Mr. Hersh continues:    

“At the time of Pollard’s spying, select groups of American sailors and soldiers trained in Hebrew were stationed at an N.S.A. listening post near Harrogate, England, and at a specially constructed facility inside the American Embassy in Tel Aviv, where they intercepted and translated Israeli signals. Other interceptions came from an unmanned N.S.A. listening post in Cyprus. Pollard’s handing over of the data had a clear impact, the expert told me, for “we could see the whole process” — of intelligence collection — “slowing down.” It also hindered the United States’ ability to recruit foreign agents. Another senior official commented, with bitterness, “The level of penetration would convince any self-respecting human source to look for other kinds of work.”

A number of officials strongly suspect that the Israelis repackaged much of Pollard’s material and provided it to the Soviet Union in exchange for continued Soviet permission for Jews to emigrate to Israel. Other officials go further, and say there was reason to believe that secret information was exchanged for Jews working in highly sensitive positions in the Soviet Union. A significant percentage of Pollard’s documents, including some that described the techniques the American Navy used to track Soviet submarines around the world, was of practical importance only to the Soviet Union. One longtime C.I.A. officer who worked as a station chief in the Middle East said he understood that “certain elements in the Israeli military had used it” — Pollard’s material — “to trade for people they wanted to get out,” including Jewish scientists working in missile technology and on nuclear issues.”

The movement to release Pollard has a long record, going back to the Clinton Presidency. Even the Marc Rich pardoner couldn’t stomach clemency for this turncoat. Eric Margolis wrote in 1999 the following: “Pollard’s defenders claim he, like French Capt. Alfred Dreyfus in 1894, is a victim of anti-Semitism in the military. They maintain Pollard was “only” spying for a friendly country, motivated solely by concern for Israel’s security.  These assertions are patently false . . .

With remarkable chutzpah, Israel, which receives up to $5 billion in U.S. aid annually, refuses to return documents stolen by Pollard, or allow U.S. intelligence to debrief Mossad agents who ran Pollard in order to learn the full extent of the disaster. While Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu kept calling for Pollard’s release on “humanitarian” grounds, he refused to free prisoner of conscience Mordechai Vanunu, now serving 18 years in solitary confinement in Israel for telling a British newspaper about Israel’s nuclear arsenal.”

If President George W. Bush made a deal with Ariel Sharon (see photo above) to release Jonathan Pollard, he would have proven once and for all that his devotion to America is wrapped in a kosher lox. Make no mistake about it: Bush is an empire worshiper with the same erroneous “Dispensational” belief that would drag down America for the benefit of Zionism.

The American public needs to express their outrage with the distorted foreign policy that favors a treacherous comrade. If Bush really was a man of courage and integrity he would have also been advocating the release and rights of incarcerated nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu and his right to leave Israel. He is a man of conscience and peace – while Pollard is a traitor of the highest order. 

Those who champion Pollard and the country that he enshrines above all others need to dissect their own support for a bogus government.  The State of Israel is not identical, nor is it interchangeable with the religion of Judaism. The ‘false flag’ that waves in Palestine has a scandalous profile that rewards the illicit and punishes the honorable. The United States is complicit in making Israel a nuclear power.  

Now we are being prepared to ignore the most grievous of treason as the price for pleasing an alien country that wheels control over our own foreign policy.  When will this treason ever stop?
