Two of the kidnapped teens last year signed petition for Pollard's release

Naftali Fraenkel and Gil-Ad Shaer, two of the three Israeli teens kidnapped earlier this month in the West Bank, signed a petition last year for the release of jailed Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard, according to Pollard activists.
President Shimon Peres, who is currently in the US where he is set to meet US President Barack Obama, convinced Pollard's wife Esther earlier this week that he would work for her husband's release during his trip.
