Jones on Pollard: Don't let this issue die!

Here are commments on the sad performance of Ambassador Jones. He gave this performance because he is what he is, raised on spin and obfuscation. He has disgraced his position and his country. An honorable person would have fallen on his sword or at least resigned.
It is not diplomatically correct to say that Jones is lying. It is better to say that his version conflicts with the truth. However, it doesn't seem that what is required is an apology. Jones should be replaced.

Video of US Ambassador Jones' Lies About Pollard with J4JP Comments
Justice4JP News - May 27, 2007

In his apology, the US Ambassador Richard Jones claims his statements about
Jonathan Pollard were misinterpreted.

Click here to see the video of Jones as he is speaking about Pollard and you
be the judge!


1) Watch the video carefully, and you will see how astute the words of
Israeli master cartoonist Yaacov Kirschen are, when he observed:

"The ambassador is saying that the anger is at the "friend" who "aided and
abetted" Pollard. The "friend" Jones refers to is either "the Jews" or the
Jewish State...We should be thankful to the ambassador for having set the
record straight at last. Jonathan Pollard is not being punished. We are."
[For full text and toon see ]

2) Jones apologised for saying that the US had shown mercy in not executing
Jonathan. Mercy? Jonathan was never facing the death penalty for the one
count of passing classified information to an ally with which he was
charged! More important, Jones did not apologize for falsely accusing
Jonathan of treason, or for falsely accusing Jonathan of having taken money.
These false charges are soundly contradicted by Jonathan's indictment and by
his sentencing transcript, and most important of all by his formal
recognition by Israel as her agent. [See "Refuting the Ambassador's Brazen
Lies"  for details.]

 3) Justice4JP agrees with the analysis of Rabbi Pesach Lerner, Executive
Vice President of the National Council of Young Israel, who recently wrote:

"I believe the case cannot be closed. The apology, as is, is still missing a
correction of Jones' comments. His facts were wrong, he needs to admit that.

"If similar comments were made against an Arab Moslem or others, not of the
Jewish religion, or perhaps not of the Caucasian race, such an apology would
not be accepted and there could be rioting in the streets. We need to demand
a full retraction, correction and perhaps an official inquiry into the
sources of his information, from where his directive to respond with such
lies originated from, etc.

At the same time, it is incumbent on the Israeli government to call in the
ambassador and have him deliver a message to the White House, 22 years is
enough. as James Woolsey, former head of the CIA, has been saying for
months--he knows the pollard file and still he says 22 years is enough.
Jonathan spied for an ally, a fellow democratic country and it is time, to
let Jonathan free and go to Israel to live out his life. Jonathan has been
remorseful, is quite ill and 22 years is enough!

We cannot be silent. it is up to the jewish community to let the President
know that this issue is important to us.
