After 30 years in prison Jonathan Pollard was paroled in 2015. In November, 2020, restrictions on his movements were lifted. And what happened next? What a surprise! He left the US with a help of a Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson. They wonder why indeed was he sentenced for spying as the two countries are allies, crying out loud. If it were an American exposing Israeli secrets it would be different, of course.
"Pollard and his wife Esther arrived on a private plane provided by American billionaire Sheldon Adelson and were greeted at the airport by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Jerusalem Post reported. The Pollards kissed the ground upon arrival.
A former civilian analyst for the Navy, Pollard was arrested in 1985 outside the Israeli embassy in Washington, D.C, where he tried to obtain asylum as counterintelligence agents were closing in on him for spying. The embassy turned Pollard and his then wife Anne away.
Pollard pleaded guilty to passing classified information and was sentenced to life in prison — the only American ever given that sentence for spying for an ally."
