NEW INTERNATIONAL POLLARD CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED
Pollard, the ultimate gesture of friendship to People of Israel
Call President Barack Obama For Pollard Today!
When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with President Barack Obama
on July 6, 2010, hopes are high that the date will prove to be an historic
one for both countries. Anticipating that mutual goodwill will produce
concrete efforts for reconciliation, many pray that the President will send
Jonathan Pollard Home with Mr. Netanyahu.
POLLARD AS A GESTURE TO THE PEOPLE
The Israeli People have been waiting 25 years for Jonathan Pollard. Public
opinion polls in Israel consistently show that the People of Israel see the
return of Jonathan Pollard as a national priority, with 84% to 92%
supporting initiatives to secure Pollard’s release. No other issue enjoys
such wall to wall support.
POLLARD IN SUPPORT OF ISRAEL
The American people, speaking through their elected representatives, want
President Barack Obama to act in support of Israel. 87 Senators recently
signed a letter to the president urging that he show support for Israel. 31
Jewish Congressman recently met with the President and they too urged that
he show support for Israel. The return of Jonathan Pollard would be the
ultimate gesture of support, welcomed and enthusiastically embraced by all
the People of Israel.

OPPORTUNITY FOR FRIENDSHIP AND RECONCILIATION
“With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu scheduled to meet with
President Obama in Washington on July 6, this is a golden opportunity for a
gesture of friendship and reconciliation to be made by releasing Pollard and
sending him home to Jerusalem, to his wife and to his People,” said Rabbi
Pesach Lerner, the Executive Vice President of the National Council of Young
Israel, and one of the driving forces behind the Pollard campaign.
