Watch List: Pollard Rally

According to this report, thousands of people rallied on Monday in Jerusalem to show their support for the pardon/commutation of sentence of Jonathan Pollard (see our Pardon Watch List). It is said that there was "hope" that President Bush will actually "bring Pollard with him when he arrives in Israel on Wednesday." The report describes Pollard in this manner:
Jonathan Pollard is well into his 23rd year of a life sentence with no possibility of parole for passing classified information to a United States ally - Israel. He is the only person in the history of the United States to receive a life sentence for spying for an American ally. The median sentence for this offense is 2-4 years. The data in question included information about Iraq's offensive weapons capabilities.
