Knesset Debate on PA Talks, Pollard Monday


At the request of 25 Knesset members, the Knesset is scheduled to hold a special Passover-break session on Monday to discuss negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority and what they called the government's failure on the release of Jonathan Pollard, in his 29th year of a life sentence for passing classified information from the United States to Israel.

The meeting was requested before Israel cancelled a release of security prisoners and the PA came up with new demands. The cancellation of the prisoner release followed the PA taking unilateral actions in violation of the agreement that set up the prisoner release.
