The campaign to release Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard encouraged people to call the White House on Monday, the 26th anniversary of Pollard's arrest. In advertisements published in the US, the campaign urged Americans to join dozens of senior American officials in urging US President Barack Obama to commute Pollard's sentence.

Israeli ads include a local number that reaches the White House. In a conference call with activists working for her husband's release, Esther Pollard warned of his deteriorating health.

"He is fading before my eyes," she said. "I am worried that he can't survive another year in prison."
