The Jerusalem Post Editor went to visit Jonathan Pollard in his Manhattan apartment.
Jonathan and his wife Esther, live in a small apartment, without a doorman or elevator.
To the surprise of many, the Pollards do not receive money from the Israeli Government saying “No, not a cent,” he said, adding: “Look, we’re not asking for anything. All we want is to come home to Israel. Is that too much to ask?”
“We don’t care about our dismal living conditions,” she added. “What troubles us is how the government deceives the public into believing they are helping us, when in fact they are doing nothing to help, and absolutely nothing to get us home.”
While Pollard’s parole is supposed to be finished at the end of 2020, that might not happen. Just as the court has refused to ease the parole restrictions until now, it can just as easily extend them for years to come.
