Flood the White House with Phone Calls: Free Pollard Now!
J4JPnews release - November 17, 2008
On Friday Nov 21st Jonathan Pollard will enter his 24th year in prison.
On Sunday Nov 23rd Ehud Olmert will be meeting with President Bush for the last time.
On Thursday Nov 27th the American people will celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday - a holiday traditionally associated with Presidential clemencies.
Now is the time to call upon the President:
Free Jonathan Pollard!
Call: 202-456 -1111 or 202-456-1414(Monday to Friday 9AM to 5PM - Eastern DST)
Every phone call is important. Everyone is encouraged to start calling the White House and to call daily, repeatedly, until Jonathan is home in Jerusalem, alive and well. Presidential clemencies are traditionally signed precisely at this time and prisoners are freed in advance of the holiday to go home to their families for Thanksgiving. What finer gesture could President Bush make to the People of Israel when he meets with the PM this coming week? Freedom for Jonathan Pollard! Mr. Bush has but 2 months left in office. These two months are a time of grace, when the out-going president traditionally grants clemencies to prisoners. There is no legal or moral reason that requires the presidentto wait until his last day in office to grant clemency. Call the White House today! Please, Mr. President, send Jonathan Pollard home!
