While Pollard Jailed for Life: Ex-Professor Gets 4 years for Passing Military Secrets to Iran, China


The irony of the verdict in the case cited in the Miami Herald report below is all too obvious to rehash. The bottom-line is that while passing information bound by agreement between 2 “friendly” nations for the U.S. to provide American ally Israel and which was crucial to the security and survival of Israel (and which agreement was defaulted upon by the U.S.), landed Jonathan Pollard in prison for life, an ex-professor is handed a 4 year prison sentence for passing militay secrets to hostile nations; Iran and China:  [...]  Click here to read more.

Bibi’s Speech: Capitulation to Obama — Partial Analysis

The IRIS blog has offered a valuable analysis of prime minister Netanyahu’s Sunday night speech set in contrast with then-MK Netanyahu’s impassioned plea in 2002 to the Likud central committee against a “Palestinian state”, the position of then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. With his speech on Sunday night, Prime Minister Netanyahu has capitulated on his previously-held principles concerning “two states”.

What everyone may be overlooking are these points;

1/ By his endorsement of “two states”, Hashem, history and the Jewish Divine legacy connected to Eretz Yisrael is nowhere in the equation. [...]  Click here to read more.

Shavu’ot 5769: All-Night Learning and Jonathan Pollard


by Moshe Burt

The concept of promoting learning all night on Shavu’ot L’Zechut Jonathan Pollard came about as an enlargement of this author’s concept of devoting one Thursday night Mishmar per month L’Zechut Jonathan, and out of a recognition that the long-established policy of current and successive previous Israeli governments of forsaking Jonathan is impervious to earthly efforts to affect pressure on his behalf to bring about change in this now long-standing policy. [...]  Click here to read more.

State Comptroller’s “Pollard Probe” Shallow; Claims “No Authority” to Probe




As with the commentary, immediately below this one. which relates to the bogus Regime/SELA libelous media report, so too, in the case of the regime’s latest machinations regarding Jonathan Pollard, as related through its blatantly leftist surrenderist MSM mouthpiece Ha’aretz and another two-bit beat reporter; the old adage kicks in: “tell a lie often enough and it becomes truth.” Then keep on telling it and every telling self-reinforces the bogus “truth (sic)” of the previous tellings. [...]  Click here to read more.

Parsha Bo 5769: Tangible Darkness, Supernal Light and Jonathan Pollard


By Moshe Burt

Before taking off on this train of thought, here’s follow up on this week’s earlier post about the Thursday night Mishmar L’Zechut Jonathan Pollard which took place last evening;

In addition to our Mishmar at Kehillat Beit Tefillah Yona Avraham, which was well attended, a few other Shuls in Ramat Beit Shemesh signed on to dedicate their learning, either last night or next week, l’Zechut Jonathan.

In addition, a news release was emailed to several email lists and Yahoo e-groups both in Israel and in Chutz L’Aretz regarding last night’s Mishmar and as to plans to continue a once-a-month Mishmar dedicated to Jonathan and encouraging the Shuls to sign on to this Mitzvah of Pidyan Shevu’im. [...]  Click here to read more.

IMRA’s Dr. Aaron Lerner reports this change in tactics on behalf of Jonathan Pollard;

Tactic: CALL White House Main Switchboard 202-456-1414 for Jonathan Pollard

J4JPnews – January 12, 2009

After being swamped with calls last week, and even after hiring a pack of new operators to handle the volume, the White House phone lines were still overwhelmed at close of business on Friday.

J4JP has just learned that the White House plans to ‘restore order’, discouraging calls about Jonathan Pollard, by announcing that it is closing down comment lines until after the inauguration of the next President on
January 20, 2009. [...]  Click here to read more.

Are You Making YOUR Clemency for Pollard Calls to White House?


It is disturbing, to say the least, to behold responses in certain Israeli Chareidi circles to this question.

One such response received today was this; “The big Rabbonim have not told us to do anything.” In other words, Pidyon Sh’vu’im is out the window unless these Rabbonim invoke it to the flocks? And it apparently has fallen on deaf ears that Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, shlita and Rav Aharon Leib Steinman, shlita co-signed a letter to President Bush asking the president to release Jonathan Pollard from jail. [...]  Click here to read more.

Bibi’s Tzomet Ploy Apparently Failed; Eitam Next in Attempt to Push Feiglin Down?



Readers may wonder why this blog has stuck pretty much to three topics in recent days; Bibi, Likud and Feiglin, Jonathan Pollard and the daily Gaza (and Yehuda, Shomron) war news.

The reason is basically because these three issues most closely focus in on the ongoing political/spiritual (or lack thereof) war between the forces of darkness, apathy and stagnation and the forces of light and Jewish self-pride and spirituality for the minds, hearts and souls
of masses of Israelis.  [...]  Click here to read more.

Reminder: 28 Days and Counting — Call White House for Jonathan Pollard!


The White House numbers;

In the US 202-456-1111

In Israel 077-566-4305


President Bush officially leaves office and turns the mantle of the US Presidency over to Barrack Hussein Obama on the 21th of January.

In the meantime, efforts aimed at Presidential clemency are being redoubled on Jonathan Pollard’s behalf.

Please note: The legal term is not “pardon” as pardon denotes expungement of charges or conviction. The correct terminology is to ask for clemency — to commutation of prison sentence to time served and Jonathan’s release from incarceration. [...]  Click here to read more.
