Young Israel Pres.: America Hypocritical on Pollard

Rabbi Pesach Lerner, Executive Vice President of the National Council of Young Israel, spoke out Tuesday calling for Jonathan Pollard's release, citing the hypocrisy of his imprisonment in America after revelations of spying against US allies by the country's intelligence agencies. In two weeks Pollard, who was accused of spying on the US for Israel, will enter his 29th year in an American jail cell.
