Chairman of the Lobby for Pollard, MK Uri Ariel (National Union) said Saturday that "the United States government must allow [Jonathan] Pollard to attend [his father's] funeral."

"Pollard's continued imprisonment is a mortal sin regarding the general humanitarian values expected from the US," Ariel added.

Morris Pollard, the father of imprisoned Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard, died Saturday at the Memorial Hospital and Health System in South Bend, Indiana.
