American Actor Jon Voight, who came to Israel with likely Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, called Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard's life sentence Tuesday "beyond injustice" and "a clear case of anti-Semitism."

Huckabee told The Jerusalem Post on Monday that US president Barack Obama should release Pollard as a gesture of friendship.

"Right now we don't need anything that reflects that we are anything but an absolute ally of Israel," Huckabee said. "[Freeing Pollard] would send the right message to the rest of the world, that America is not pulling back on its friendship and relationship with Israel but it is accelerating it and making sure that we are taking every step possible to solidify those bonds."
