Pollard Hospitalized: Peres to request Pardon

MK Uri Ariel with Shimon Peres and Esther Pollard 
Jonathan Pollard was admitted to a hospital in North Carolina after his condition deteriorated over the weekend.

During a meeting with Jonathan Pollard's wife on Sunday, President Shimon Peres said he may file an official request later this evening with his American counterpart Barack Obama to pardon the convicted spy.

[See: Esther Pollard to Peres: I don't want to be a widow]

R.Mordechai Eliyahu zt''l said that Moshiach cannot come as long as Pollard is in jail : he either has to be freed or he has to die [chas v'shalom] before the Geulah can occur:  ''Rabbi Eliyahu visited Jonathan Pollard in prison on most of his visits to the US. Rabbi Eliyahu held that Jonathan's release is also the key to the release of all of Israel's captives and MIAs. Once Jonathan is out, all the captives are all out! Once they are all out, we are all in Redemption! In the same way that Joseph's name became Yehoseph, Joseph with an additional ה, Rabbi Eliyahu wanted for Jonathan Pollard to change his name from Jonathan, יונתן, to Yehonatan, יהונתן, with an additional ה. And indeed in Rabbi Eliyahu's study, Jonathan was referred to as Yehonatan.''

Pollard's jailing for so long is not natural. Rubashkin's sentencing to jail for 27 for minor fraud is also not natural. Katzav's jailing for 7 years for unproven "rape"/flirting is also not normal. What's going on here? Are these fellows hinting at the "Suffering Servant" of Yeshaya 53? The Kabbalah states that one of the traits of Moshiach is that he has to feel as if he is literally dying at every moment.

I have nothing but contempt for the land of my birth right now. It started with Caspar Weinberger and his stinking extra-judicial note to the sentencing judge. And after Weinberger, there were a whole host of Presidents who could have pardoned him after the maximum five years that he should have received for his crime. Gog H.W. Bush Sr., Bill (barking dog) Clinton, Gog ben Gog Bush, Jr., and now Obuzzard. Three prominent Jews in high places saw to it that his sentence was upheld and served: D.C. Appeals Ct. Judge Laurence Hirsch Silberman, soon to be nominated Supreme Court Justice Ruth baglady Ginsburg, and soon to nominated Vice- Presidential candidate Joseph Lieberman. If he G-d forbid dies in prison, a pox on all their houses. And the quicker that G-d destroys America the better.

My contempt for the US began in earnest when I found out about a year before I made aliyah, that they REJECTED Anne Frank from escaping Nazi Germany (they let her father in, but not her or the rest of her family). Instead of being inspired by her continued happy-spirited life, we now have her book, "The Diary of A Young Girl" - we read, we weep, we visit the Web site - but how can we continue, knowing that the US has been cruel to Jews, both openly and secretly, for decades? Their tradition continues with Jonathan Pollard - and to that, I say, I agree with you, Dov Bar-Leib - America deserves what she is going to get.

Jonathan Pollard is set to be released on November 21, 2015. His wife Anne served 3 yrs & 4 months. If one minuses her time in jail from his release date, we arrive at July 21, 2012. Which is a week before Tisha B'Av of 2012/5772, and just over 3 months away. It may be that he will pass on to Shamayim by that date, or be freed by that date.

I am astonished at the insensitivity of some of the replies.
Jonathan Pollard needs our prayers to be a flooding avalanche in Shamayim in the presence of HaShem.
This is not a game of vendetta or pin the tail on the donkey....JONATHAN'S LIFE IS IN PERIL.
Please let us pray for HaShem's Rachamim on Jonathan before HaShem's Din on His enemies....which will come.

Please HaShem.....RACHAMIM!!!!

You guys talking of destructions all the time, and your negative vision is disgusting. Moshe Rabeinu was born in Egypt and He never cursed the land nor hit the land for certain Makots where he has to, because He respected the land where he was born, Aaron his brother did. Why you think it is better to destoroy America, because of immoral things then look for gay parades in Yerushalaim and Tel Aviv, look of assimilation in the holy land where the punishment is more strict than in Diaspora. We pray for peace everywhere not to destruction. Do not start to burn what Hashem did with your negative toughts. America deserves it , are you so sure Dove and CDG ?

I have felt for a while that there are some people who have made aliyah because their lives in their country of birth did not turn out well, and they fled to Israel to try again. Whilst this is commendable, if there still exists a resentment towards their birth country [and all the people who still live there], it is not commendable. It is akin to bearing a grudge against someone who did you wrong. Bearing a grudge is like poison, it eats away at you. Now I may be barking up the wrong tree here, but I feel that cursing an entire nation i.e. America is not the way to behave. If I am not mistaken, Jonathan Pollard did commit a crime, as did Rubashkin. I understand that both these men have received maximum jail time - some say it is because they are Jews. I do not know. But I do know that in Rubashkin's case, he had the option of taking a plea bargain, which he did not do. In Pollard's case, he has been unfairly kept behind bars for way too long, and he should be released, just on humanitarian grounds if nothing else. Whatever the case, it is Heaven which will decide when these men will see freedom, and all we can do is pray.

Moshe, blessed pesach. while i do agree with you about speaking negatively about any people or nation,a s all are Hashem's creations, and yes, even when the egyptians were drowning Hashem told the angels not to sing and rejoice as His creation is being destroyed, the america today leaves much to be desired.
it is mainly from there and other western countries that porno and such terrible influences on our youths is seeping into other countries and they call it human rights. we all need to do teshuva. perahps tis time for the western nations including americal to clean up their indivudal mess and stop trying to be a world police. after ronald reagan ((not to say he was perfect as no one is) it has been a steady down hill.

Moshe said...

Do you know my dear brother how many Jews did Teshuva in America? Do you how much Hesed was done recently for past 10 years, especially where russian jewsih who did not realize that they are Jews. Can you see what G-d see???
For the terrible things that you listed it is true, but somebody doing as a Gazlan, and somebody do it privately like a Ganav, which one is worse?

Moshe said...

blessed pesah 5772...:o)

blessings. i am a mother of two grown sons, aged 36 and 34. the three of us are noahides living in s.e. asia. my husband is not a noahide but he feels strongly for the jewish people.
thanks for correcting me. it is true on one hand individuals have and still do much good for others even among the non jews in US and other western nations. i should not have made such a blanket statement.
while i stand corrected, if you read the www.wnd.com and other papers, its shocking about the school syllabus, in US, the immoral topics forced on kids and parents and even on home schooling, and the cases against jews are shockingly bias which one hears off in third world countries. in all, the good the US has done for the world has now taken a turn for the worse. we can all come out of this by turning to Hashem and doing teshuva. will they?
Hashem is always willing to receive us. are we willing to go to Him.
as i was with my husband driving to my sons' home, a car in front had this sign . first time i am seeing it and it struck home. the sign read, "G-d is Great. He allows a u-turn."

Blessings to you and your family.

I believe that America has been one of the most wonderful countries and of course Eretz Yisrael is always first. Are things changing here? Yes. I am grateful to be living here in a country where my freedom and liberty are intact. Are things changing? Yes. Do I wish to vote the current admin out of the White House? Yes.
I wish nothing bad upon the country that I live in. I wish for all mankind to look at himself and change his anti-semitic ways. I wish for them to change their bigoted, arrogant hateful ways.
I would love to see an increase in the wonderful behaviors that they do have such as being neighborly and giving helping out when people are in need.
Ok....so where does that leave me? it leaves me in a place where I will continue to work on myself and to raise my family as Jews in a place that may not be their homeland, yet it does treat them well.I will raise them with an understanding that they should not take their freedom for granted and that true freedom comes from following the laws of Hashem.
Chag Sameach Gut Moed.

Terence McKenna was so ahead of everyone else:

At 1:30
''.....and not only must the last 4,000 years of history be compressed into this 67 year period from 1945 to 2012, but there is a 384 day period preceding Dec 22, 2012 when the last 67 years and the last 4,300 years have to be compressed into that.... then there's a final six day period when all of these things are compressed again..... the spiral is tightening as it goes faster and faster...''

[We think time has speeded up, and we are correct, it has speeded up, everything is coming together faster and faster]

''as computers link all cultures together, all informational barriers dissolve.. everything is becoming connected to everything else... not only in the present moment, but all past moments as well...''

Hmm, there's that rascally six day thing again. And on the seventh day? ;-)

"Obama Won't Release Jonathan Pollard Despite Israel's Requests.."

"And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses. And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him: Thus saith the LORD, the God of the Hebrews: Let My people go, that they may serve Me. For I will this time send all My plagues upon thy person, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like Me in all the earth. "

''At our Passover seders we spill a drop of wine when we mention each of the 10 plagues, and also when we mention the abbreviation of those plagues by saying דצך עדש באחב . Well this abbreviation of the 10 plagues also has a gematria of 501, the same as Barack Hussein Obama and the Yishmaelim.''

In Sept. of 2001 the World Trade Centers were destroyed by two civilian aircraft and the Pentagon was hit by another. Gog W. Bush, Jr. vowed to take down Bin Laden dead or alive. In April 2002 about 6 months later after the Pesach massacre in Netanya, Ariel Sharon after allowing the Al Aksa Intifada to drag on for one and a half years launced Op. Defensive Wall. He had Arafat holed up in his compound in Ramallah. The greatest mass murderer of Jews since the Shoah could either have been taken down by a bullet to the head or even taken in for crimes against humanity and mercifully be put to death. Yet, Gog W. sends Colin Powell to Israel demanding that Arafat be left alive and free. For the next two years of Arafat's life, he murders at leat another 150 Jews. On whose hands is all that Jewish blood after Arafat was left alive and in control??

And if America had every right under Heaven to take out Bin Laden, and it was Gog W.'s intent to do so if necessary, why did he demand that Arafat be left alive?? Please explain the ugly vile, moral hypocrisy of the United States, and then come to me and explain to me that America is so great whenever they can make a few more bucks on cheaper Saudi oil at the expense of hundreds of Jewish lives and thousands whose blood cry out from the grave.

Dov Bar-Leib said...

In addition there is no resentment toward American Jews who were not stupid enough to vote for Obuzzard and enough in the spiritual sewer to even consider voting for him a 2nd time. If you can continue to live with the hypocrisy, be my guest. The hypocrisy of Colin Powell having the audacity to demand that Arafat remail alive was enough to make me vomit and vow to leave. So about a year later I was gone. I could not remain with the rank hypocrisy anymore, and yes I do have a difficult time understanding how seekers of Truth in the Jewish world feel comfortable living out the rest of their lives there. Personally, I gave up a good parnassah in order to escape with my soul intact. Hopefully, others are desiring to leave before, over 70% of the American Jewish? community votes for Obuzzard a 2nd time. These 70% who would vote for a man from the spiritual sewer who is bascially our mortal enemy, how should I pray for their continued prosperity?? so that they can use their money to finance left wing organizations to uproot Jews in Judea and Samaria?? Where does this obscenity come to a merciful end????

I should mention that I just came back from a three day camping trip with my kids on the Jordan River, north of the Kinerreth. So this delayed my response for a few days. Moed tov and moadim lesimcha.
