Demo with Esther Pollard September 25 at Likud Convention
Justice4JP Release - September 19, 2005
Join Jonathan's wife, Esther, at a demonstration Sunday afternoon, 25 September 2005, at the Likud convention at Exhibition Gardens (Ganei Ha'Taarucha) in Tel Aviv. [Demo details below.]
PM Sharon's latest publicity stunt in the US (14 September): pretending to "ask" for Jonathan's release, while at the same time forcefully making the case in the Israeli media for keeping him in prison. The White House got the message, and with a wink and a nod gave Sharon the desired response, "No freedom for Pollard." Of course not.
The entire stunt was reminiscent of a child experiencing peer pressure and looking for a way out, so he runs to his father and says, "Dad you don't let me do this, right? I'm not allowed, right Dad?" And Dad gets the message and says "Right! You are not allowed!"
This stunt may have seemed like a domestic PR victory for Sharon, but it damaged Jonathan Pollard - an Israeli agent who has served 20 years in prison on behalf of this country - and brought deep dishonor upon Israel as a Nation.
We want Sharon and his Likud confreres to know that this wicked treatment of an agent is unacceptable. It is morally repugnant - a mockery of the indigent (la'ag la raash). We want to let Mr. Sharon and his party to know that we aren't buying publicity stunts, and we are not accepting the dishonor.
This may be the last chance we have before Rosh HaShana to express our support for Jonathan Pollard and our unyielding desire to have hiim home for the holidays. Your presence sends a message to each and every Likud candidate, that Pollard is, was and remains, a central issue for all of the nation. Please come and show your support for Jonathan Pollard!
