US to release Pollard in exchange for 'talks' continuing
If any of you had any doubt that Jonathan Pollard is anything other than a hostage being held by the United States, this should dispel them: The US is reportedly considering releasing Pollard as an incentive for Israel
to go through with the release of 'Israeli Arab' terrorists at the end of this week in order to keep the 'peace talks' going.
The talks, which began last summer, were supposed to have concluded
at the beginning of April with a framework for negotiations, to be
written by Secretary of State John Kerry. But PA chief Mahmoud Abbas has
made it clear numerous times that he will not concede on the
Palestinian's “core” demands – an Israeli withdrawal from all of Judea,
Samaria, and much of Jerusalem; free immigration of the descendants of
Arabs who fled Israel in 1948 into Israel; and no recognition of Israel
as a Jewish state.
Under such conditions, Netanyahu has told diplomats, there is no way
he could get an agreement with the PA approved by his government.
The US, therefore, is considering various “creative” ideas to make
the deal more appealing, the report said. Among them is an idea
Netanyahu himself proposed – releasing Jonathan Pollard, who has been in
an American prison for nearly three decades on charges of spying for
Israel. The diplomats said that it was not clear Obama would agree to
such a condition.
Actually, this report doesn't even mention the possibility of 'Israeli Arabs' being among the terrorists released. It just says that Israel doesn't want to go through with the fourth terrorist release at all. Hmmm....
