Jonathan Pollard Begins 27th Year of Prison Today

by Mike Fegelman

Haaretz reports that Pollard, who was convicted of espionage for Israel and was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1986, has been suffering from many medical complications. His wife, Esther Pollard, was quoted as saying his medical condition won’t enable him to survive through another year of jail.

Pollard’s lengthy prison sentence made headlines last month, when U.S. Vice President Joe Biden denied he said Pollard would be released "over his dead body," telling U.S. Jewish leaders, however, that the sentiment expressed in his rejection was his own.

Today’s editorial in Matzav details the events surrounding Pollard’s conviction and continued incarceration.
