Report: Jonathan Pollard may be freed in November

(JNS.org) Jewish spy Jonathan Pollard might be released from prison Nov. 21, which will mark exactly 30 years since he was arrested for giving Israel classified information on the U.S., The Algemeiner reported Friday. An unnamed source involved in the case said the U.S. is “seriously considering” releasing Pollard, 60, from a North Carolina federal prison in consideration of his failing health. Pollard’s freedom would not come for the purpose of calming U.S.-Israel tension over the Iran nuclear deal, said the source. Pollard is the only person in U.S. history to receive a life sentence for spying for an American ally. Numerous former American security and intelligence officials with first-hand knowledge of Pollard’s case have called for his release.
