JNS.orgMore than half of Israeli Jews—52.4 percent—believe Israel should condition the release of Palestinian prisoners on the U.S. freeing imprisoned Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, according to a new Israel Hayom poll.

In the same poll, 79 percent of respondents said Israel should not go ahead with the third stage of the Palestinian prisoner release next week due to the recent spate of Palestinian terror attacks. Additionally, 85.8 percent said the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations would not lead to a peace agreement.

    In addition, when the prisoners are released, they should be released on American soil. Let America deal with people who have been brought up to hate and to kill, if they want them released!

    If the peace negotiations fail, that is one thing. If they result in an agreement which doesn’t bring peace that is the worst and most likely scenario.

    Obama is determined to be effective in Israel where he has failed so miserably everywhere else.

    We should not blackmail the USA! Do we know everything about what Polard did and who got the info he stole. We are Israeli Jewis we have Mussar !

    If the US wants to play Moishe Gros in the Israel-Fakestinian charade, it’s time they put some human skin in the game – POLLARD. John (Mr. 57 Varieties of Heinz) Kerry doesn’t qualify.
