CAPITOL REPORT

Pollard Denies Existence
Of U.S. Jewish Spy Ring

T

he U.S. Justice Depart-
ment has been trying
— so far unsuccessfully
— to get convicted Israeli spy
Jonathan Jay Pollard to im-
plicate other American Jews
and Jewish organizations in
alleged Israeli espionage ac-
tivities in the United States.
But Pollard, according to
informed sources, has stead-
fastly rejected Justice
Department insinuations
that a broader Israeli spy net-
work was operating in the
United States.
"Pollard has not implicated
anyone else," one informed
source close to the investiga-
tion said. Since his arrest, he
has been repeatedly and
sharply questioned by an
assortment of federal pro-
secutors, law-enforcement of-
ficers and intelligence
officials.
They have been focusing
their investigation into the
activities of several national
Jewish organizations.
American Jewish leaders
are deeply aware of the suspi-
cions among some senior
Justice Department investi-
gators that Pollard may have
been part of a wider Israeli es-
pionage operation in the
United States. The Jewish
leaders have strongly denied
that any such network exists.
They have, however, pri-
vately expressed concern that
Pollard, during the course of
extensive questioning and
under a great deal of pressure,
may make some statement to
back up this allegation. Their
fears have been aroused by
the prevailing impression in
the Jewish community that
Pollard was supposedly
somewhat unstable.
Their concern seems to
have been further strengthen-
ed because of the deep per-
sonal bitterness and disap-
pointment he expressed dur-
ing an exclusive interview at
the Petersburg federal prison
in Virginia. It was the first
time Pollard has spoken out
since his arrest one year ago
outside the Israeli Embassy
in Washington.
He told a very sad story
with broad implications for
Israel and American Jewry.
He deserves greater support
from Israel and more
understanding from the
American Jewish community.
Pollard said he was
"befuddled" and "heart-
broken" by the decision of the
Israeli government and the
American Jewish community
to effectively abandon him
since his arrest.
"I feel the same way that
one of Israel's pilots would
feel if after being shot down,
nobody made an effort to
come get him," he said. "Not
even lifted a finger — in fact,
questioned his abilities and
his motivations."

Yet during the interview, he
still proclaimed his deep love
for Israel and for Jews
everywhere. He said he still
hoped to make aliya one day
and to live "a productive life
in Israel."
Wearing a light khaki,
short-sleeve prison shirt and
darker khaki trousers, he
said, "As far as I am con-
cerned, I am as much a loyal
son to that country as
anybody has ever been...I did
my best. I'm sorry if I wasn't
the most effective from a

long-range standpoint. But I
did my best."
His big mistake, he said,
was in not making aliya
before entering into the es-
pioniage operation with the
Israeli officials. He said he
had contemplated aliya since
the 1967 Six Day War, when
he was 13 years old. "My
heart has always been in the
East," he said.
In recent days, several
Israeli officials in Washington
have expressed their personal
view that the Israeli govern-
ment did indeed behave less
than honorably toward
Pollard and his family over
the past year. He was a
devoted agent who provided
Israel with very important in-
formation, they confirmed.
But they noted that the
government was primarily
concerned about the "bigger"
issue of U.S:Israeli relations
rather than the fate of
Pollard. By abandoning
Pollard and cooperating with
the U.S. investigation — to
the point of even providing
evidence against him — Israel
hoped to limit the damage to
its relationship with the U.S.
Israeli officials expressed
confidence that the Israeli
government would eventually
take some steps to help
Pollard and his family,
especially with the enormous
legal costs they have
amassed.
But Pollard felt betrayed by
the official Israeli reaction.
"By avoiding the issue," he
said, "all Israel is doing is
leaving an unburied body to
rot and stink and foul the
air...I'm tired. I'm frustrated.
I'm scared as hell for myself
and my wife. I just want to
end this:'
For his own protection,
Pollard has been isolated in a
six foot by nine foot cell at
the maximum security pri-
son. He has received
numerous threats from white
