"Hezbullah" has kin worldwide; In America too. They scheme to crush Israel - as the world watches. Will the apathetic or the hateful remain immunized? No! As it says (Zach. 1, 15), " I will rise to anger against apathetic nations"; And as it says (Num. 24, 9), "... those who curse you, I will curse". Evil perpetrated on God's representative nation draws retribution. Let evil befall Israel, and the next thing you know, Hezbos will show up -- in your own backyard!
Jews should do something for a Jew very much in need, and most especially if he sits behind bars nearly 30 years - unfairly! We should all try to do something earnestly, something worthwhile, to get Pollard out of jail.
Obama is scheduled to go to Israel. He always has his nose high. He will keep it there because he regards Jews and Israel with virulent contempt. (Don't let some of his appointments throw you to think otherwise). Have you not seen how he personally mistreated Netanyahu? Going to Israel is a political necessity he managed to avoid and now no longer can push off.
A few Knesset members already suggested Obama free Pollard. But suggestions by themselves do nothing. We must contrive something to force his hand. Bibi could easily do so - by conditioning these upcoming talks with Pollard's release. I doubt he'd think of it, much less do it.
My Jewish traffic averages less than 100 per day. Hardly a broad base or a good launchpad for an urgent appeal. Does someone have a good idea; Can we not help Pollard somehow?
At least on Mondays, Thursdays and Shabbatot let's initiate for him, יהונתן בן מלכה, a מי שברך.
