Pollard doesn't want to be freed for Palestinian prisoners, says Uri Ariel

Jonathan Pollard does not want to be freed from a US jail in exchange for Palestinians prisoners, Housing Minister Uri Ariel said Tuesday.

 

Ariel told Army Radio that people close to Pollard have told him that the convicted spy opposes such a "shameful deal."

 

Ariel, a member of the far-right Bayit Yehudi party told the radio that he, too, is against the release of murderers for Pollard. (AP)
