Simply because he is a Jew, who was working for Israel. So what, I say, AIPAC, ADL, JDL, etc. all work for Israel - one way or other.
Once again Israel tries to have one of their spies freed from jail. This article, of course, understates the damage that Pollard did. The nuclear defense secrets Pollard gave to Israel were then in turn given by Israel to the USSR in exchange for increased immigration quotas, and compromised the US nuclear deterrent. Your parents spent $5 trillion paying for that (indeed you are still making payments on all those nukes), so the scale of Pollard's betrayal is right up there with that of the Rosenbergs, who were executed for their theft of nuclear secrets. We have seen far too much leniancy by the US towards Israel's spies, including the one inside the Pentagon office from which the lies about Iraq's WMDs flowed, and certainly the ones arrested after cheering the collapse of the World Trade Towers.
