Israeli Politicians Hail Jonathan Pollard’s Release
Israel Hayom – Israeli politicians warmly welcomed the news that Jonathan Pollard, the Israeli spy imprisoned in the U.S. for nearly 30 years, is due to be freed on parole in November.
“A great joy,” Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Habayit Hayehudi) wrote on her Facebook page. “This evening we were informed that very soon we will have the privilege of rejoicing over Jonathan Pollard’s release from American prison. Thirty years of suffering will come to an end in November. Not because of mercy, but because of the law. Not because of the U.S.’s destructive deal with Iran, but because the sentence has been served.”
