According to a report on Israel Radio, the US is weighing the release of Jonathan Pollard in order to prevent Kerry’s peace talks from collapsing.
As JewishPress.com reported last week, according to statements from senior officials within the Palestinian Authority, the PA is only continuing with peace talks in order to free more terrorists from Israeli jails.
Coalition members from the Likud and Bayit Yehudi have made explicit threats that would destabilize the coalition government if the upcoming release of terrorists goes through.
Netanyahu is reportedly feeling the pressure from his ministers and coalition partners, and may not release the terrorists.
It appears that the US might be willing to:
free Pollard to reduce internal pressures on Netanyahu,
to convince Netanyahu to release the terrorists,
to convince the Palestinian Authority to extend the talks,
to prevent Kerry’s peace talks from collapsing on April 29th,
to prevent another major foreign policy failure for Obama,
so Kerry and Obama can get a Nobel prize,
