This is a very interesting development, coming as it does after the conclusion recently of the nuclear agreement between the US and other nations and
Jonathan J. Pollard, who was sentenced to life in prison in 1985 for passing classified documents to the Israeli government, will be released on
parole in November, a government panel decided on Tuesday.
It is politically very astute, almost poetic in its ambiguity
. It can be seen as a gesture to Israel that says, "We know you are unhappy about
the Iran deal. Here is something that you have wanted for some time."
It also says, "You have double dealt with us in the past, as we both know. Don't make too much fuss over the Iran deal."
You don't see much poetry out of the State Department, but this might be an instance of it.
