Edelstein Urges MKs To Work in U.S. for Pollard’s Release

YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein urged a group of seven MKs who are traveling to the U.S. and plan to participate in pro-Israel events in Congress and New York City next weekend to push for the release of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard, The Jerusalem Post reported on Monday night.

The delegation will be carrying a petition signed by 106 MKs calling on President Obama to commute Pollard’s sentence to the 28-and-a-half years he has served.

“The Americans have already agreed to his release, and now all that is left is to agree on the price,” Edelstein told the MKs.
