A day after classified documents were released by Wikileaks, Deputy Speaker of the Knesset Danny Danon called Monday on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to "intensify" his efforts to have Jonathan Pollard released, according to a statement released by the Knesset.

Danon said in the statement: "In light of the reports published by Wikileaks, I call on the Israeli government to immediately file an official request with the US administration demanding the release of Jonathan Pollard."

"It is hypocritical for the American government – which we now know has continuously spied on its allies and even operated a 'mole' within a friendly government – to continue to keep Jonathan imprisoned while ordering American civil servants to commit similar acts."
