Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Monday with Esther Pollard, wife of Jonathan Pollard and promised her he would bring up the subject of her husband’s life imprisonment when President Barack Obama visits later this month,
“The time has long since come for Jonathan to go free,” the Prime Minister said. “This issue will come up during President Obama’s visit. It has already been raised countless times by myself and others, and the time has come for him to go free.”
Former US Assistant Secretary of Defense Lawrence Korb and Effie Lahav, head of the Committee to Free Jonathan Pollard, also attended the meeting.
Esther Pollard said, “This is a golden opportunity now that the President of the United States is coming. If not now, when?”
