Bennett, who was born in Israel to immigrants from San Francisco, said he always considered himself solely Israeli despite his dual citizenship and the years he spent working in hi-tech in New York. He said he would advise the American leadership to consider the feelings of Israelis.
“I think it would be very fitting for the US to send Pollard home to Israel in light of Israel freeing so many terrorists,” Bennett told The Jerusalem Post. “Pollard never killed anyone and they killed women and children. We are taking a step, which I opposed. In light of that step, it would not only be fitting but also ethical and humane and the right thing for America to do.”
Lipman is proud to be the first American-born MK in 30 years and boasts about the good values he gained from living in the United States. He called upon US President Barack Obama to consider those values while deciding whether to commute Pollard’s sentence to the nearly 28 years of his life sentence that he has already served.
