Pollard's Wife Begins Hunger Strike

July 26, 1996 - Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA

Esther Pollard, the wife of Jonathan Pollard, will begin a hunger strike in Jerusalem on Sunday for her husband's release. She says she won't eat until her husband is released - even if she dies doing it. She complained that Prime Minister Netanyahu, who called for Pollard's release before the elections, did not even raise the issue when he met with President Clinton.
