MKs Come Out In Support of Pollard's Release

Several Members of Knesset across the political spectrum called for U.S. President Barack Obama to grant clemency to Jewish-American prisoner Jonathan Pollard. MK Avi Wortzman (Jewish Home) said, "this week we are going to release the terrorists because of American pressure. I call on the President to listen to the senior U.S. officials who are stating it's time to release Jonathan Pollard. We want to see our brother Jonathan come home."
