The 75,000th person signed a petition Wednesday evening calling upon President Shimon Peres to do everything possible to bring about the release of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard, hours before he is set to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in the White House.

The petition drive began three months ago and has attracted support from across Israel and around the world.

The organizers of the petition stressed that they were not asking Peres to condition receiving the medal on Pollard’s freedom.
