Pollard, the ultimate gesture of friendship to People of Israel
Call President Barack Obama For Pollard Today!
When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with President Barack Obama on July 6, 2010, hopes are high that the date will prove to be an historic one for both countries. Anticipating that mutual goodwill will produce concrete efforts for reconciliation, many pray that the President will send Jonathan Pollard Home with Mr. Netanyahu.
POLLARD AS A GESTURE TO THE PEOPLEPublic opinion polls in Israel consistently show that the People of Israel see the return of Jonathan Pollard as a national priority, with 84% to 92% supporting initiatives to secure Pollard's release. No other issue enjoys such wall to wall support.
The Israeli People have been waiting 25 years for Jonathan Pollard.
POLLARD IN SUPPORT OF ISRAEL 87 Senators recently signed a letter to the president urging that he show support for Israel. 31 Jewish Congressman recently met with the President and they too urged that he show support for Israel. The return of Jonathan Pollard would be the ultimate gesture of support, welcomed and enthusiastically embraced by all the People of Israel.
The American people, speaking through their elected representatives, want President Barack Obama to act in support of Israel.
CALL THE WHITE HOUSE NOW: Tel: 202-456-1414 or 202-456-1111
Everyone is urged to participate in this worldwide grassroots effort starting today, by calling the White House, daily, every day from July 1st through July 6th repeatedly and often, to urge President Barack Obama to send Jonathan Pollard home to Israel.
Call between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM EST. To leave a message for the President, the White House Switchboard can be reached at
202-456-1414. The White House Comment Line can also be reached directly by calling
202-456-1111. Tell the President that releasing Jonathan Pollard would be the consummate act of friendship towards the People of Israel. Ask the President to please send Jonathan Pollard home with Mr. Netanyahu.
OPPORTUNITY FOR FRIENDSHIP AND RECONCILIATION
"With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu scheduled to meet with President Obama in Washington on July 6, this is a golden opportunity for a gesture of friendship and reconciliation to be made by releasing Pollard and sending him home to Jerusalem, to his wife and to his People," said Rabbi Pesach Lerner, the Executive Vice President of the National Council of Young Israel, and one of the driving forces behind the Pollard campaign.
