Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky called for the immediate release of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard in a speech Wednesday night at the Union for Reform Judaism Biennial in Washington, DC.

"Having raised the issue with both White House and cabinet officials in Washington, I am aware that this is a complicated matter for the American Jewish community," he said. "But today when there is a growing consensus in favor of Pollard's release among former Pentagon and CIA officials, American figures, legal authorities, the Israeli government, and American Jewish leaders, the time has come to vigorously and loudly demand his freedom. Twenty-six years is more than enough."

Sharansky served three years in prison and five years of forced labor as a prisoner of Zion in Russia.
