By Elliot Goldenberg Jonathan Pollard, the former U.S. Naval Intelligence analyst who received a life sentence for spying for the Israelis during the mid-1980’s and was released from prison on Friday, November 20, thirty years nearly to the day after his arrest – could have become a free man during the presidency of Bill Clinton, according to a report by an Israeli journalist. As I note in my book, SPY OF DAVID, back in December of 2011, that journalist, Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu, reported a charge by a longtime Pollard advocate, attorney Alan Dershowitz, that Bill Clinton might have actually freed Pollard, in 2000, if Jewish senators had only stood up for him. According to Gedalyahu, at the 2011 annual Israel Business Forum, Dershowitz revealed that he had raised the subject of Pollard to Clinton, who, in 2000, was approaching the end of his term. “Clinton told me,” said Dershowitz, ‘How can you expect me to release Jonathan Pollard when your own senators wrote me a letter not to release him’.” I immediately recalled the article author John Loftus wrote in 2003 that appeared in Moment Magazine in which Loftus argued that the reason Jewish leaders didn’t rally to Pollard’s side, early on, was because, prior to Pollard’s sentencing in March of 1987, Senator Chic Hecht had urged them not to. Upon reading this, I couldn’t help but think of the conversation motion picture producer Suzanne Migdall said she had with the late senator when they sat next to each other on a flight to the Bahamas. Hecht, who, in my opinion, was fed faulty information by the CIA, told Suzanne that the case was “a lot worse than you think. It goes so high up, you have no idea.” What Hecht told those Jewish leaders, Loftus claimed in his 2003 Moment Magazine piece about Pollard, was that Pollard’s spy operation had cost the lives of U.S. moles behind the Iron Curtain – something we now know was the work of spies Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen. As for Pollard, his fate was arguably made into a bargaining chip – his release a bone thrown to the Israelis, no doubt tied into the Obama administration’s unpopular nuclear deal with Iran. Now, twenty-five years later, the debate over America’s most controversial spy has again been rekindled. Elliot Goldenberg is the author of The Hunting Horse and The Spy Who Knew Too Much. He has written thousands of published articles and has interviewed dozens of national and world leaders; has cultivated numerous contacts in the intelligence3 community.

The following is a little taste of the story. Angie’s golden ring becomes a symbol of independence and a motivation for her future. Angie has transformed from a carefree high school senior to a responsible mother-figure as she cares for her two brothers after their mother’s death. Although she accepts her new role, she would give anything to return to the time when her days were filled with pool parties and weekend plans with friends. If only she could see her father filled with happiness and her younger brother not terrified of his new step-mother. For Angie, life has not panned out the way she expected, but now more than ever she is motivated to make the most of it. In A Golden Bond, Angie builds her life independently and becomes a role model for her two brothers. Alongside her journey, five other women share their lives’ triumphs and shortcomings. A Golden Bond captures the life of Angie Demetrious and incorporates the stories of Jenny, the bad girl, Molly, the maid, Colleen, the business woman, Patty, who runs away from her fears, and Judy, the victim of her choices. Their unique lives are all bonded together by Angie’s class ring. And by the end of Angie’s journey, she realizes her mother was right all along, she is stronger than she ever knew. This is Angie's story and the ring that touched the lives of a bad girl, a maid, a business woman, a runaway and a victim of her own bad choices... Elaine H. Jannetides is the daughter of Greek immigrants. Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, Elaine is what you might call a true Hoosier. She graduated Shortridge High School and attended Indiana University Purdue University of Indianapolis. Elaine has had a lifelong love of reading and writing and this is her first novel although her writings have appeared in Kinonia. Elaine grew up in a Greek immigrant household without extended family nearby. The church was a great influence because it was a network of other immigrants, all of whom became a family. It was a major part of Elaine and other immigrants’ lives and held them to high standards and moral values. Elaine remembers most fondly the Greek traditions of each holiday as there was always a lot of people, a lot of cooking, and a lot of love. Brought to you by CPG News & Information Services
