What's With Pollard?

US President Barack Obama had considered offering clemency to jailed Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard but was convinced not to by Vice President Joe Biden, The New York Timesquoted Biden as saying in an article published on Friday.

"President Obama was considering clemency, but I told him, ‘Over my dead body are we going to let him out before his time,’" Biden said. “If it were up to me, he would stay in jail for life.”

Biden allegedly made the statement during a meeting with rabbis in Boca Raton, Florida last week.

The US vice president reportedly made the comments when asked by one of the rabbis why Pollard had not been released.

According to The New York Times report, Obama is relying on Biden to help him retain the Jewish vote, seen by many to be slipping to the Republicans.

If you want the Jewish vote, then be normal and release Pollard!
Rav Mordechai Eliyahu zl has told us that the key to the Geula is Yonatan Pollard.
