By the way- The median sentence for the offense Pollard committed – one count of passing classified information to an ally – is 2 to 4 years. Pollard received his life sentence without a trial, as a result of a plea bargain which he honored and the U.S. government violated. He is in the middle of his **24** year in Federal Prison!
FIRST REPORT: NATIONAL GRASS ROOTS EFFORT ON BEHALF OF JONATHAN POLLARD IS LAUNCHED
November 25, 2008
Behind the scenes, askonim from all walks of communal life have been diligently working together in unprecedented cooperation – and using every available angle to free Jonathan Pollard. Now is your chance to stand up for the silent suffering and make a difference!!
A nationwide grass roots effort on behalf of Jonathan Pollard was officially launched today. People are encouraged to click freepollardnow.com to join the effort to help set Jonathan Pollard free.
Because it is critical that the White House hear from as many people as possible in the next several weeks, visitors to freepollardnow.com are urged to call, fax, and send letters to President Bush on a daily basis. The website provides contact information for the White House, a sample letter that people can fax or mail, and an online petition that will be sent to President Bush. Visitors to freepollardnow.com are reminded that just 60 seconds a day can help Jonathan Pollard go free.
Pollard, who just began his 24th year in federal prison, has repeatedly expressed his remorse publicly and in private in letters to many Presidents and others. His health has deteriorated significantly during his more than two decades in prison.
Rabbi Lerner, one of the driving forces behind freepollardnow.com, communicates regularly with Jonathan Pollard and his wife Esther, and is considered by Jonathan to be his clergy..
please all go to http://www.freepollardnow.com/petition.php and sign the petition
