US Embassy Swamped with Phone Calls to Release Pollard

Tal Yamin-Wolfowitz - Maariv - June 1, 2004

"Release Pollard now"- that's the message the members of the Committee for Pollard have been using since this morning when swamping the directory of the US embassy in Tel-Aviv. Committee members have spread brochures across Israel which contains the phone number of the embassy. According to the members, "We will continue to disrupt the US diplomatic activity in Israel in any way possible as long as Jonathan Pollard is still in prison".

J4JP Adds:

The Phone-In Rally for Jonathan Pollard which began 1 June 2004, is the initiative of the Jerusalem-based Committee To Bring Jonathan Pollard Home. On Day One of the Phone-In Rally thousands of phone calls were received, effectively overwhelming the Embassy's phone lines. The campaign was so successful that the Committee asks the general public to keep those call coming, to continue calling the US Embassy in Tel Aviv every day for as long as it takes, until Jonathan Pollard is home.

The telephone number in Israel is: 03-519-7575.
From the US or Canada dial 011-972-3-519-7575.
