Anat Kamm - a slap on the wrist!

Which she then passed on to a journalist without knowing what use would be made of the sensitive material.

In passing sentence the Judge honoured the plea bargain which had been made between the sides.

Jonathan Pollard - life is life!

 

Compare this to the circumstance of the Jonathan Pollard trial and sentencing. There, the judge overruled the plea bargain agreement and imposed a life sentence. And it seems that life MEANS life. Pollard has already served 25 years and all efforts to obtain parole or clemency have been refused by a succession of presidents.

Only last month Vice -President Joe Biden stated that Pollard would be released “over my dead body” (unquote).

The Americans really take their secrecy issues seriously.

They certainly place a higher value on them than Israel.
