Israeli Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein said in a Hebrew-language tweet the late President George HW Bush was active in helping to get him freed, when Edelstein was a Soviet prisoner of conscience.

“I will forever remember his stubborn fight to allow me to move to Israel,” Edelstein wrote. “I send condolences from the depths of my heart to his family & the American people.”
