Relatives of Terror Victims Appeal for Pollard Release

Bereaved families who suffered a second time when the terrorists who killed their loved ones were released in connection with the Israel-Palestinian Authority diplomatic process wrote a letter to President Barack Obama of the United States, Sunday, demanding that he release Jonathan Pollard as a gesture to their sacrifice. Pollard has been behind bars for more than 28 years on a life sentence for passing classified information from the U.S. to Israel.

The Almagor umbrella group of terror-victim organizations initiated the letter, which Almagor delivered to the U.S. ambassador in Israel, Dan Shapiro.
