      US Jewish Leaders Meet With Biden on Pollard Pardon


      US Jewish leaders have met with Vice President Joe Biden, intent upon changing his mind over pardoning Jonathan Pollard. The meeting came after Biden only a few months ago remarked that the Pollard pardon would be “over his dead body”, but he has since taken back this statement. 18 Ex-senators have submitted their petition for the pardon to President Obama, to hopefully secure a presidential pardon for Pollard in time for the winter holidays in the US.
