Chief Rabbi of Israel: Obama Re-Election May Hinge on Freeing Pollard

(INN).Chief Rabbi of Israel Yona Metzger warned U.S. President Barack Obama in a pre-Passover sermon that he may lose a bid for re-election if he does not free Jonathan Pollard.

Speaking at the Yeshurun Synagogue in Jerusalem, Rabbi Metzger stated:
"If Obama wants another term - He has to release Jonathan Pollard immediately, This is not a prophecy, but that many Jews who voted for President Obama in 2008 are disappointed by his apathetic response to numerous calls to free Pollard".

“Before President Obama forces on us policies [concerning the Palestinian Authority], he should prove his mutual friendliness with the People of Israel by freeing Pollard".
