      Israel's Treachery


      If this is true:-

      According to U.S. law enforcement officials and various documents, Kadish got in touch with his Israeli contact after Israel agreed in 2004 to secretly acknowledge to American officials that Pollard was not an isolated case, thereby confirming longtime American suspicions that Pollard was not the only American spy working for Israel.

      Then the real treason here is that of Israel under Ariel Sharon.  Being treasonous to Jay Pollard.

      Israel said kaddish over Pollard, symbolically.

      UPDATE

      I just now spotted this in the Washington Post:-

      The handler and Kadish renewed their ties on March 20, according to the FBI affidavit, after federal agents interviewed Kadish for the first time. "Don't say anything," the handler allegedly said. "Let them say whatever they want. . . . What happened 25 years ago? You didn't remember anything."

      The next day, FBI agents again questioned Kadish, who allegedly denied the call had taken place.

      On second thought, not only treacherous but it seems that some Israelis, even those supposedly spies, are plain stupid.  Talking on an open line?  After the caller informs you he was questioned by the FBI the previous day?

      UPDATE 2

      And this seems to continue to lead me to my supposition that Mr. Kadish was considered more important to Israel than Jonathan Pollard. And I think that, perhaps, somehow, to keep a possible spotlight off this man, who even may have been personal friends with Rafi Eitan, Shimon Peres or Yitzhak Rabin, that Pollard was sacrificed - kicked out of the embassy, documents were handed back to the US and for a good few years, interest and concern for Jay was kept at the barest minimum.:

      Mr. Kadish, friends and neighbors said, was a staunch defender of Israel and Zionism; he was born in Connecticut but grew up in Palestine and fought for Israel’s independence.                            Source
