Bereaved families ask to meet Peres on Pollard
A group of bereaved families who vigorously opposed the prisoner exchange that brought home kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit last October asked for a meeting Sunday with President Shimon Peres to urge him to do everything possible to bring about the release of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard.
Peres is going to Washington in two weeks to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from US President Barack Obama. The families wrote to Peres that that price they paid to the state obligated them to "make sure that this critical opportunity to save a life is not lost."
