Seventy-seven members of Knesset signed a petition calling on US President George W. Bush to pardon the life-sentence of imprisoned Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard. MK Uri Ariel, the head of the Pollard lobby, sent the letter Monday evening to officials in Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's entourage, who is currently meeting American officials in Washington, so that they could pass the petition to Bush himself.
