Netanyahu Writes Obama: Free Pollard
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is scheduled to read to the Knesset Tuesday evening a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama in an unprecedented public appeal to the United States to save Jonathan Pollard from spending the rest of his life in jail, according to Voice of Israel government radio.
THIS IS HISTORIC!
From the J4JP website:
Netanyahu says Pollard call still coming
Gill Hoffman - The Jerusalem Post - January 3, 2011
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu promised on Monday to keep the pledge he made two weeks ago to publicly ask US President Barack Obama to release Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard.
When MKs Aryeh Eldad (National Union) and Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) asked Netanyahu at a Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting what was delaying his request, Netanyahu replied that he would have something to announce about the letter in the "near future."
Sources close to the prime minister said that there were currently a couple of formats that they were trying to consolidate, and said that the announcement would come in the "coming days."
All I have to say is, it doesn't depend on Mr. Netanyahu. Ultimately, it is in Hashem's hands and if Bibi wants to continue to play his little political games instead of saving a Jewish life, then Hashem will employ another messenger.
