Dear Mr. President:

As a President who has expressed his strong determination to restore honor to American democracy, We would like to call your attention to the case of Jonathan Pollard and to request that you exercise your power of executive clemency to commute Jonathan Pollard's sentence to time-served.

The United State of America is going to celebrate " The Fourth of July", July 4, The anniversary of the publication of the declaration of independent from Great Britain in 1776.

This year, 2011, Mr. President, United States of America will celebrate 235 years of Independence, 235 years of freedom, What Jonathan Pollard Needs.

Jonathan Pollard Father, Morris Pollard , passed away last Saturday, and Jonathan was not allowed to visit his Father on is deathbed, and was not allowed to go to the Funeral.

If Jonathan Pollard was free, he could visit is Father before he died.

But, Jonathan is not Free.

Jonathan Pollard is currently serving his 25th year of a life sentence even though the median sentence for the offense he was indicted for is 2 to 4 years.

Jonathan Pollard never had a trial. He entered into a plea agreement, which spared both the U.S. and Israeli governments a long, difficult, expensive and potentially embarrassing trial. Jonathan Pollard fulfilled his end of the plea agreement, cooperating fully with the prosecution.

Jonathan Pollard was indicted on only one charge: one count of passing classified information to an ally without intent to harm the United States. There were no additional charges dropped by the plea agreement.

In spite of his plea agreement and in spite of his cooperation, Pollard received an unprecedented, grossly disproportionate life sentence.

It is unjust that Pollard has been punished much more severely than all others who committed similar offenses on behalf of other US allies. It raises concern about why a Jew who spies for Israel is treated far more harshly than those who have spied for other allies, or even enemies of the US.

After more than two decades in the harshest of prison conditions, Jonathan Pollard is ill and his health is rapidly deteriorating. Furthermore, it should be noted that Jonathan Pollard has expressed remorse for his actions.

We, therefore, strongly urge you commute Jonathan Pollard's sentence to time-served. This request is supported by former CIA Director James Woolsey and former head of the Senate Intelligence Committee U.S. Senator (ret.) Dennis DeConcini, as well as a cross section of other notable Americans, and the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations.

Thank you for your prompt consideration of this urgent matter.

Yours truly,
