THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Israel May Get Pollard
Off The Hook With U.S.

Israeli leaders may be prepared
to negotiate with the US.
to bring Pollard and hiw wife
there, and avoid long prison terms

T

he Israeli government

is revising its "hands-
off" attitude toward
convicted
Israeli
spy
Jonathan Jay Pollard.
There are strong indica-
tions that top Israeli leaders
may even be prepared to enter
into negotiations with the
U.S. government in an effort
to bring Pollard and his wife,
Anne Henderson-Pollard, to
Israel and thereby avoid
potentially lengthy prison
. sentences for them in the
United States.
The Israeli Ambassador to
the U.S., Dr. Meir Rosenne, in-
vited Pollard's parents, Dr.
and Mrs. Morris Pollard of
South Bend, Indiana, to the
Embassy in Washington to
inform them that he would be
prepared to discuss the case
with them at any time. The
Ambassador's meeting with
the parents was seen as a
signal of a possible change in
Israel's position. Dr. Pollard
is an internationallyrenowned
microbiologist at Notre Dame
University.
The well-known New York
lawyer, Leon H. Charney, who
is very close to several top
Israeli political leaders, was
approached by Dr. Pollard
and Bernard Henderson,
Anne Henderson-Pollard's
father, about possibly getting
involved in the case.
Charney has also had a tele-
phone conversation with
Jonathan Jay Pollard's Wash-
ington lawyer, Richard Hibey.
A decision by Charney to
enter into the case would fur-
ther signal the readiness of
Israeli leaders to try to reach
a political accommodation
with the U.S. government
over the fate of the Pollards.
In an interview, Charney
recalled precedents involving
American citizens spying for
Britain and other friendly na-
tions in 1939 and 1940 prior
to America's joining the war
and in violation of the U.S.
neutrality act. "What we
must keep in mind are the ac-
tivities of Pollard," Charney
said. "They involved a friend-
ly nation — not one hostile to
the U.S."
After Pollard's arrest, then-
Prime Minister Shimon Peres
apologized to the U.S., ex-
plaining that the espionage
operation was unauthorized.
Israel then cooperated with
U.S. authoritites in the in-
vestigation, even making
evidence against Pollard
available to them.
Pollard maintained that he
was not spying "against" the
U.S., that the information he
passed on to Israel involved
only Arab threats facing

Israel. Thus, much of the in-
formation he obtained for
Israel involved various
Palestinian terrorist opera-
tions, Arab development of
nerve gas capabilities, and
conventional Arab military
threats facing Israel. "There's
no doubt that he did a lot for
Israel," a Minister in the "In-
ner Cabinet" said. "We do
owe him."
An extensive investigation
of the Pollard affair in recent
weeks — including interviews
with key U.S. Justice Depart-
ment officials, law enforce-
ment officers, and intelligence
community analysts as well
as with authoritative Israeli
and other sources— has
resulted in these additional
revelations:
• Israeli masterspy Rafael
Eitan unsuccessfully tried to
pressure Pollard into collec-
ting damaging and embar-

threats.

rassing information from U.S.
intelligence files about Israeli
Cabinet Ministers and Mem-
bers of Knesset.
The "dirt," as one authori-
tative U.S. source described
the information, could have
been used by Eitan and his
associates to "blackmail" the
Israeli politicians. But Pol-
lard, a former civilian intelli-
gence analyst for the U.S.
Navy, understood Eitan's ob-
jectives and refused to pro-
vide him with the information
— a decision which deeply
angered Eitan and may have
led to his eventual decision to
abandon the American agent
after his arrest.
Eitan, a tough veteran of
the Mossad who later served
as adviser on counterter-
rorism to Prime Ministers
Menachem Begin and Yit-
zhak Shamir and as head of
the LEKEM scientific intelli-
gence-gathering unit in the
Defense Ministry, was Pol-
lard's chief "handler." After
Pollard's arrest by the FBI,
the LEKEM unit was dis-
banded and Eitan today
heads Israel Chemicals, the
largest government-owned
firm in the country.
• Pollard, just prior to his
arrest in late 1985, was asked
