Netanyahu Comments on Jonathan Pollard
April 27, 1998 - Kol Yisroel Radio
On Israel Radio's English Service - Channel 1 Broadcast
Note: these were the final comments of an in-depth interview.
Interviewer: David Ze'ev
Q: (Ze'ev) - Did Jonathan Pollard act as an authorized agent for Israel?
A: (Netanyahu) - Well he certainly paid the price for the State of Israel.
He didn't do what he did for his own private whim, and I think we have to
recognize that. As far as the precise legal wording of this issue, I leave
it to the lawyers and the legal experts.
Q: Do you have any indications of American flexibility on the matter?
A: Well I have nothing to report at this time, but I do hope, I want to
assure you that we will continue in an unabated and unrelenting fashion to
try to bring Jonathan Pollard home.
End of Interview.
