Jonathan Pollard, Former Jewish Spy, Lands in Israel 35 Years After Arrest
Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard made aliyah (immigrated) early Wednesday morning, landing in Israel 35 years after he was sentenced to life imprisonment for passing classified US information to an ally.
He and his wife, Esther, arrived on the private jet of American billionaire Sheldon Adelson, immediately kissing the ground after coming down the steps of their plane.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu greeted the Pollards at Ben-Gurion Airport, handed Jonathan an identity card, and recited the sheheheyanu (you kept us alive) and matir asurim (freeing of prisoners) prayers with them. Netanyahu said he is glad that they are home. (JPost / VFI News)
