The Knesset will discuss imprisoned Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard on Wednesday, ahead of US President Barack Obama’s visit later this month.

Temporary Knesset Speaker Binyamin Ben-Eliezer (Labor) agreed to a request from MK Yoni Chetboun (Bayit Yehudi) to hold an official plenary discussion.“Pollard’s release is not a political issue or a concern of a specific segment of society,” Chetboun explained. “It is a national consensus that crosses [political] camps.”

The Bayit Yehudi MK called for his fellow lawmakers on the Right and Left to take part in the discussion.
