Report: U.S. may free Pollard to save peace talks

(JNS.org) In order to break a deadlock in the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations, U.S. officials are reportedly not ruling out a proposal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu under which Israel would agree to accept Secretary of State John Kerry’s framework peace proposal and free Israeli Arab terrorists from jail in exchange for the U.S. releasing imprisoned Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard. The officials said it is unknown whether or not President Obama would agree to that proposal. Pollard, now in his 29th year in federal prison, is the only person in U.S. history to receive a life sentence in jail for spying for an American ally – Israel.
