MK Arye Eldad (National Union) on Saturday responded to the news of Morris Pollard's death with harsh words for US President Barack Obama for not releasing Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard to see his father before he died.

"The people of Israel will not forget Obama's cruelty, inflexibility and the maliciousness of ignoring all the requests and petitions for Jonathan's release." He added, "The US president, that wasn't even able to make this basic humane gesture, cannot wonder why the Jewish people will enlist all their powers to prevent his reelection."
