The Jewish Telegraph Agency reports that four Congressional Democrats "are urging President Obama to release Jonathan Pollard as a means of advancing the Israeli-Palestinian peace process." The four members are: Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.), Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) and Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.). They are also circulating a letter/petition through the halls of Congress. It says a pardon would be "a strong indication of the goodwill of our nation towards Israel and the Israeli people." See full story here.
