The Free Pollard campaign responded optimistically to US President Barack Obama's statements in a Channel 2 interview Thursday, saying that the president left room for hope when he said he had no plans to release the Israeli agent "immediately."
They noted that recent statements by US Vice President Joseph Biden and then-secretary of state Hillary Cllinton were less positive.
"The feeling is that the president is really coming to listen to the Israeli public and its leaders," a campaign spokesman said, calling upon the public to continue to push for Pollard's release.
