Jonathan & Joseph

It’s heartrending to read of the anguish of Jonathan Pollard in his 21st year of imprisonment in the Land of the Free.

His fellow inmates noted that Prime Minister Olmert forgot to mention Pollard’s name amongst other prisoners of Zion in his opening speech to the winter session of the Knesset.

How this must have made him feel.

Unlike MIA’s Zachary Baumel, Zvi Feldman, Yehuda Katz, Ron Arad and Guy Hever and the three captives of this year’s hostilities Gilad Shalit, Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser – the Israeli government knows exactly where Pollard is.

Yet they do nothing.

Like another abandoned brother.

His name is Joseph.

And he lies in Shechem (Nablus), in full view of our army and on territory to which we are legally entitled (even) under the Oslo accords.

Who is more important than all of these heroes of our people?

Apparently only drug dealers like Elchanan Tannenbaum, for whom the Sharon government released over 400 terrorists.

What has become of us?
