Youth Groups to PM: Don't Forget Pollard


Bnei Akiva and other Zionist youth groups are calling on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, asking him not forget Jonathan Pollard when he meets with President Barack Obama of the United States. Pollard has been in prison for more than 25 years on a conviction for passing classified information from the U.S. to Israel.

In a letter written before Netanyahu left for America, the youth groups said, "It's not obvious. Youth movements are very split regarding a number of topical issues, but once there was full and unequivocal mobilization [regarding Pollard], the youth movements are of one opinion.
