A Lovely Parting Gift

A prisoner will be released because of the Iran nuclear deal. Sadly, it won't be an American held by Iran.

No, we will release an Israeli spy to make up for harming Israeli security:

The Obama administration is preparing to release Jonathan Pollard, a U.S. Navy intelligence officer convicted of spying for Israel, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing U.S. officials. ...

The Journal said some U.S. officials hope the move will smooth relations with Israel following the Iran nuclear deal, which Israel opposes.

Which is sickly cruel of the Obama administration, considering Pollard might simply die with a lot of other Jews if Iran gets nukes.

I don't think we should release Pollard.

And Israel should refuse the deal lest they signal acceptance of the nuclear deal.
