Morris Pollard, father of Israel agent Jonathan Pollard was laid to rest on Monday at the Jewish cemetery in Southbend, Indiana.

Jonathan Pollard was ultimately not permitted to attend the funeral despite pleas from American Jewish leaders and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office.

Pollard was buried next to the grave of his wife. Jonathan Pollard was not allowed to attend his mother's funeral at the time.

Coalition chairman Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) said that despite the failure to bring about Pollard's release for the funeral he hoped that efforts by the government and the Knesset to persuade US President Barack Obama to commute his sentence to time served would eventually succeed.
