MKs petition Biden to release Pollard to see father

Seventy-five Knesset members signed a petition Thursday asking US Vice President Joe Biden to grant Jonathan Pollard "compassionate leave" so that he may go see his father on his deathbed.
Jonathan Pollard's father Morris was initially hospitalized last weekend for a severe bladder infection, but his condition has worsened considerably and he is now comatose.
Morris Pollard is currently at Memorial Hospital and Health System in South Bend, Indiana.
