I take exception to letter writer Arye Barkai’s request for Jonathan Pollard’s freedom. I do not allow myself, a Jew, to forget I’m an American first. I’m solidly behind Israel and realize that, along with maybe four or five other countries, Israel would have our backs no matter what.
My religious beliefs get in line far behind my allegiance for my country. Pollard should have been executed long ago for treason. It really is as simple as that!
