Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat came out for the first time in favor of the release of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard in an address Monday to 700 participants of the Miami Jewish Federation's mega mission to Israel in the capital.

"Many people throughout the world find it difficult to understand the supreme value that the State of Israel places on a single human life," he said.

"Jonathan Pollard is not an enemy of the United States and neither are we. I
want to ask you as decent human beings to go back to the US and relay this
humanitarian message in support of Jonathan's release," Barkat said.
