Report: US May Offer to Free Pollard to Keep Talks Going

6

jonathan-pollardAmerican officials are very concerned that the talks between Israel and Palestinian Authority could break down totally. The two sides are deadlocked, and no progress has been made for weeks, the officials were quoted as saying by Israel Radio – and the administration of President Barack Obama is feverishly trying to come up with a formula that will keep both sides talking.

The talks, which began last summer, were supposed to have concluded at the beginning of April with a framework for negotiations, to be written by Secretary of State John Kerry. But PA chief Mahmoud Abbas has made it clear numerous times that he will not concede on the Palestinian’s “core” demands – an Israeli withdrawal from all of Judea, Samaria, and much of Jerusalem; free immigration of the descendants of Arabs who fled Israel in 1948 into Israel; and no recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. Under such conditions, Netanyahu has told diplomats, there is no way he could get an agreement with the PA approved by his government.

The US, therefore, is considering various “creative” ideas to make the deal more appealing, the report said. Among them is an idea Netanyahu himself proposed – releasing Jonathan Pollard, who has been in an American prison for nearly three decades on charges of spying for Israel. The diplomats said that it was not clear Obama would agree to such a condition. Read more at Arutz Sheva.

  1. The later news is that the Commie Codger wants Ntanyahu negotiators to define what it means by a “Jewish state”. I think many of us are kind of curious about that! Kerry, Ntanyahu and Abbas – the Hefqer Triumvirate.

  2. Not worth the lives of other Jews, which will be at risk if any “peace” treaty is negotiated with these chayos.

  3. We should release murders, and they give up what???? Don’t you think one Jew is worth at least 100 murderers who have sworn to go back to their ways once released? Snowdon did a lot more damage than Pollard could ever do. Good thing he is in Russia where he can’t be touched by the US. You can’t trust this country. They lied to Pollard and they are lying to Snowdon.

  4. Bennett is a fraud! He couldn’t care less if Pollard rots in prison. As long as he holds on to his power. For shame.

  5. ” Good thing he is in Russia where he can’t be touched by the US. You can’t trust this country. They lied to Pollard and they are lying to Snowdon.”

    I understand that Russia is taking immigrants. You might find it more to your liking.
