Jonathan Pollard is very sick. He has been suffering terribly for the last couple of months, and was in the prison hospital three times in the last week.
Prime Minister Netanyahu's call to President Obama to pardon Pollard is not just an act of justice that is long overdue after 25 years, but now it is a matter of saving a Jewish life. Mercy.
Please call the White House -- several times a day if you can -- and ask President Obama to do what's right and just, and grant an immediate pardon to Jonathan Pollard. The numbers are either 202-456-1414 or 202-456-1111 -- and make sure you speak to someone, don't just leave a message.
Pollard's punitive punishment is draconian. Keep releasing those GITMO murderers.
Pollard's sentence is an abomination. Pure anti-semitism. Let's be frank, shall we? If Israel wanted to spy on the US, they wouldn't use a Jewish guy. This is Pollard's 26th year in prison, (the longest serving spy sentence in American history). The median sentence for the offense Pollard committed -- one count of passing classified information to an ally -- is 2 to 4 years. Pollard received his life sentence without a trial, as a result of a plea bargain which he honored and the U.S. government violated.
The Lockerbie Muslim bomber slaughtered 243 passengers, 16 crew members and eleven people in Lockerbie, southern Scotland, who were also killed as large sections of the plane fell in the town and destroyed several houses, bringing total fatalities to 270. Many Americans were killed. He was freed and now lives the luxurious life of a Muslim celeb-jihadi.
This is anti-human and morally depraved.
Please call the White House.
