RUSH: Moshie in Miami Beach. Moshie, it’s great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hello? Hello? Rush?
RUSH: Yeah, hi.
CALLER: Yeah? Wow. I — I didn’t think I would get through. I feel so honored. My father and my father’s mother are die-hard, die-hard Democrats.
CALLER: And they always brought me up thinking that you’re an anti-Semite. I’ve listened to your program numerous times and I see that’s not the case.
RUSH: Thank you very much, sir. I’m glad you saw that.
CALLER: I actually see that the Democrats are the anti-Semites. Okay. So my question is: With this Russian spy deal in the works —
CALLER: — why hasn’t Jonathan Pollard been brought enough? (sic) Like, I mean, Netanyahu was here how long ago? Two days ago, right?
RUSH: Just a couple days ago, yeah.
CALLER: Yeah. And nothing has happened with that. He’s been staying in jail for more than 25 years, and I mean, this guy gets to go out not even after two days? They even sentenced him to five years.
RUSH: Well, I don’t think there’s anything to trade. I don’t think the Israelis are holding any American spies. This is a ‘spy swap.’ The Russians are holding one of our guys, and we’re going to get rid of the spies here in exchange for our spy. But I don’t know that we’re holding any American spies, the Israelis aren’t.
CALLER: That’s true. But I mean why would you release Russian spies when you could I mean — (telephone ringing) Israel is our friend. (Wife on phone: Hello?) I mean, I don’t understand it.
RUSH: Well, I don’t really understand the spy swap because the truth of the matter is that the Russians don’t have any Americans, either. The spy that we want back is not actually an American. (wife talking) The guy in question is a Russian citizen who was working for the Brits. (wife talking) That’s who we’re gonna get back and we’re going to give up ‘Svetlana Chapman’ or whatever her name is out there.
RUSH: You know, that long flowing redheaded looker.
RUSH: If it were Bush, would he send her back? Obama, another thing.
CALLER: Well… (wife talking)
RUSH: I don’t know. As for Jonathan Pollard, you know, I don’t even think Netanyahu raised it. Certainly he’s not going to raise it with Obama. I guarantee you.
CALLER: Okay. (wife talking)
RUSH: I mean, Netanyahu is just happy to get out of there without having been dispatched to the basement to think about it first.
CALLER: That’s true. That’s true. Okay, thank you very much.
RUSH: All right, Moshie. Great to have you on the phone.
