Meretz Youth Responds to Obama's AIPAC address: Free Pollard

Meretz Youth Media Release - May 22, 2011

[Translated to English by J4JP]

"The release of Jonathan Pollard ought to occur at once. It would not be, not only the rectification of a great injustice, but also a confidence-building measure which would reassure everyone that change is possible."

"We believe that President Obama's important call to Hamas for Gilad Shalit's release [during his speech at AIPAC] would be far more genuine and effective if the President were to demonstrate through personal example, by releasing Jonathan Pollard -- particularly when so many senior American officials have made it clear that justice demands Pollard's immediate release."
