1997. Jonathan Pollard had been sent to prison in 1984. It was now 1997 and Pollard was still in prison?! It was outrageous!
Thirteen years for spying for an ally? For providing Israel with info that we'd been promised? Thirteen years, a stretch out of proportion with the sentences of others!... and the government of Israel did not demand the release of our spy?! Thirteen years in prison and still America showed no mercy and American Jews remained silent.
I did the above cartoon back in 1997 to focus on the immorality of Israeli governments continuing the abandonment our agent. ...and that was almost 10 years ago!
This coming Monday, November 21, 2005, marks the 21st year of Jonathan Pollard's imprisonment.
To understand the depths of this injustice go here.
