Report: Kerry Offered Pollard Release to Israel

• antiwar.com
 

Reports swirling around the Israeli press say that Secretary of State John Kerry has offered to release convicted spy Jonathan Pollard and secure his departure to Israel if the Israeli government doesn’t renege on the promised releases of Palestinian detainees.

The Channel 10 report cited unnamed Israeli sources saying Kerry made the promise, but that he conceded he hadn’t asked Obama about it, and Israel doubts Kerry can actually get Obama to approve.

Moshe Feiglin: Learn from Pollard Who Will Not Agree to Release in Exchange for Terrorists Dec-26-2013

Construction in Judea and Samaria in exchange for the release of murderers is moral pollution and a perversion of the value of settlement of the Land of Israel. Every time that I visited Jonathan Pollard in prison he insisted, “I am not willing to go free in exchange for terrorists. I prefer to die in prison and not to see one Jew killed by a terrorist who was released for me.” It would be wise for us all to align our scale of values with this amazing man.
