Calverton, MD - The former contract linguist for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) who was arrested [reported here] last week Thursday to leaking classified documents to an Internet blogger, was defense counsel for Marwan Barghouti, the Fatah terrorist leader now serving five consecutive life terms in Israeli prison.  The New Israel Fund paid his fees.

Shammai Leibowitz, an Israeli Jew known as a far-leftist, came to the U.S. where he became a translator for the FBI.  In that position, he leaked sensitive documents to a pro-Arab Palestinian group, among others.

Your description of this individual is wrong . The FBI has a translation section and the individuals have no proper FBI agent training .Their function is to translate document or transcribe taped conversation from various languages into English. FBI agents are trained at a Marine Corps training center. He is not an FBI but an FBI translator or linguist

the fact that he was a defense lawyer for bargouti is inconsequential.
Wasnt michael chertoff defense attorney for magdy elamir?

Why would they hire a known Communist to translate documents and then have no security procedures to ensure ANY translator not steal the information? This is INSANE.

I agree with you 100% . What puzzles me that Iranian Jews who have Isreli citizenship were refused jobs because of their background even though they are fluent in Farsi. How did this mamzer obtain a freelance contract

You are right he is a granchild of that old coot who had a brain disorder (extreme leftist) so the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.
Please don't call such and individual Rabbi he was a professor who with old age had brain corosion.

Yes, this is Yeshiyahu Leibowitz's grandson.
He is a known Palestinian agitator.

Interesting question is why he was ever trusted by the FBI, given his political activism.

More interesting question is whether the sentence would have been equally light had he leaked it to a PRO-israel blog.

Why isn't anyone expressing outrage towards the New Israel Fund for paying his fees? They are also responsible.

Why with Pollard, rather with Jeffrey Dahmer or with another cannibal.

It seems that they only have that procedure in place if the translator is a right wing or not know for any left leanings.

Because he defended Barghouti, the future Nobel piece prize holder for piece. That also explains #10's question why Barghouti is relevant.

Very relevant. He is the one we will see smiling on the Camera's and saying in English that he wants "peace" and in Arab that he wants the Jews murdered.

With Pollard, because they both compromised United States security.

How do you know?

I would say that they should put him with Dahmer, because they are both cannibals. Cannibals eat their own brethren.

he is frum, you can google his name and see things he has written where he plainly identifies himself as an orthodox jew, furthermore, if he is indeed YL's grandson that would also make him the nephew of Prof. Nechama leibowitz , z'l.

I was certain someone would come up with that stupid comment. Thank you for not disappointing me. The NK does not endanger anyones lives. They believe (right, wrong, or indifferent) that bowing to the ruling power is in the best interest of Jews who believe it or not, did that for thousands of years and survived better then they would have in armed conflict. They recent Lebanese war did nothing to reinforce the Israeli superman image in my eyes or anyone else's. Keep blaming the NK (You might actually want to look up the translation of that, as it is used in the gemara and shulchan aruch) and ignoring the leftist like Rabin, Vanunu, Lebowitz, $ Co.

Shame on you... Why sit with Pollard?

How can you compare the two…

a) Pollard did NOT divulge any information to an enemy, it was to a friendly country.

b) Pollard definitely didn't turn his back on his fellow Jew.

c) Pollard didn’t do it for monetary gain he thought he was being patriotic.

Perhaps they should hold him instead of Pollard.
