Maariv Full Page: "Bring Pollard Home!" Commissioned by Heaven
Justice4JP Release - April 13, 2004
full page display ad in Maariv today addresses Prime Minister Sharon as he departs for the United States. Evocative graphics and compelling language remind the PM, "Don't Come Home Without Pollard!" The full text of the ad (translated from Hebrew) reads:
HONORABLE PRIME MINISTER:
You forcefully demanded that Binyamin Netanyahu return from the Wye Summit with Jonathan Pollard!
You paid an exhorbitant price for the release of Elchanan Tannenbaum!
Now it is your turn to secure this most minimal (long -owed) exchange from President Bush, otherwise it is all nothing but a farce.
NOW IS THE TIME!
DON'T COME HOME WITHOUT JONATHAN POLLARD!
The ad indicates that it was placed by The Committee to Bring Jonathan Pollard Home. The Committee consists of unfunded volunteers whose prayers and activities storm the Heavens, but whose pockets are empty. The Committee rejoiced at seeing the ad but had no idea who paid for it. When Esther and Jonathan Pollard were asked by the Committee if they knew who placed the ad, the Pollards responded that the ad was surely commissioned by Heaven in response to the massive outcry of the Jewish People. The Pollards added, "Whomever the human shaliach was, that person and their descendants will surely be blessed, now and throughout the generations, for this wonderful contribution to the mitzvah of pidyan shvuyim! Our deepest thanks!"
Justice4JP applauds and encourages all intiatives to remind Prime Minister Sharon that he has both a moral and a legal obligation to bring Jonathan Pollard home, now!
