"One thing that I do not want there to be even the slightest shadow of doubt about: not only is the Government of Israel completely committed - wholeheartedly and genuinely committed- to securing Jonathan Pollard's speediest possible release from prison, it also intends to undertake intensive steps in the US, in Washington, in order to try to bring Pollard home to us in Israel, as quickly as possible."
