US Ambassador: Pollard Could Remain in Jail for Life


Dan Shapiro, US Ambassador to Israel, is quoted in Thursday's Yisrael Hayom daily as saying that he does not know if Jonathan Pollard will be forced to remain in prison until his death, but that Pollard can still request a pardon.

The ambassador was speaking to students at the Jezreel Valley College.

"As for the Iran issue, Israel has the right to independent military action", the ambassador said.
