Palestinians Demand the Execution of Pollard In Response to Kerry
What would possess the United States government to release Jonathan Pollard, a U.S. intelligence agent who was convicted as spying on the U.S. for Israel, as part of the negotiations for “Peace” with Palestine?Apparently the White House has not indicated how Pollard’s release would even factor into these “Peace” negotiations, though various news agencies report it being used as a carrot the United States government might use to keep the “Peace” negotiations from falling apart.This is just another indication of the sham-circus being paraded before us suggesting that “Peace” rides on negotiations between three corrupt governments: the United States, Israel, and the Palestinian Authority. While these governments consider Pollard’s release, Palestinians continued to be murdered, continue to live under hellish circumstances, continue to struggle for their Lands and their communities, and continue to carry on the world-renowned struggle for liberation from the colonial hell that they have been forced to face.While thousands of Palestinian prisoners languish in brutal conditions for being Palestinians, the wise United States government thinks releasing Pollard might help keep the “Peace” negotiations alive. What good has the United States government ever done in Palestine? This question begs an answer. For all its supposed help at creating “Peace,” the situation in Palestine has only gotten worse and worse and more and more brutal as a result.The “Peace” negotiations between the three corrupt governments are reportedly in “jeopardy” because the Israeli government refuses to stop building new settlements and release Palestinian prisoners, yet the United States government does not consider cutting back the millions of dollars it sends Israel everyday. No, instead it considers giving Israel a great reward, something which the Israeli government and settler establishment have long been calling for. It’s being suggested in the media that releasing Pollard might be used in exchange for Israel agreeing to release Palestinian prisoners and doing (yet another) “settlement freeze”, things which Israel had already agreed to do (then backed out of) and which have very little to do with the actual negotiations themselves. Further, both of these things are issues that Israel has historically backed out of on any pretense of any whim anyway!The majorities of Palestinians don’t even believe in, nor want these sham “Peace” talks between the three corrupt “savior” governments to continue anyway. Why would they? None of the governments ever considers grassroots Palestinian voices in these negotiations, and none of the “negotiations” initiated by the United States government throughout the years have brought anything resembling Peace to Palestine. Given this reality, the United States government continues to make known its real intentions and its real priorities in this situation.Some of the arguments Israeli government officials and settlers have made for years concerning Pollard’s release have to do with the harshness of Pollard’s sentence considering the reality that Israel and the United States are such great friends. It seems this great friendship supersedes all things. Sham-circus aside, this “great friendship” between two brutal colonial governments is the bottom line.
