Knesset Pollard Lobby to Obama: Free Jonathan Now

As the hour for the Israeli government's decision on freeing terrorists with "blood on their hands" approaches, the heads of the Knesset Lobby for Freeing Jonathan Pollard, MK's Nahman Shai (Labor) and Ayelet Shaked (Bayit Yehudi) called on the President of the United States to free Jonathan Pollard before the start of negotiations between the PA and Israel.

The MK's said: "This is an historical opportunity during which Israel is asked to free prisoners with 'blood on their hands'. At this moment, it is right and fitting that  you lend your ear to the wide-ranging  demand, from all sectors of the public and from the elected leadership of Israel, that pleads with you to 'let Pollard go'."

"This move would open the way to the hearts of the Israeli public and create an atmosphere of good will as the historic negotiations begin."
