Lapid: 'Tears in my Eyes' when I Spoke to Pollard
Jonathan Pollard called his wife, Esther, just as she was meeting Yesh Atid
By Gil Ronen- IsraelNationalNews - February 18, 2013
Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid told his faction Monday that he had an
emotional conversation with Jonathan Pollard in the morning hours.
"Esther Pollard was meeting me and in the course of the conversation,
Jonathan called her on the phone from jail," Lapid said. "So we went outside
to talk a little. It was a conversation that truly brought tears to my eyes,
and I do not mean that figuratively.
"It was a conversation with a desperate and broken man and no one wants to
pick up this glove," he continued. "We will do everything in our power to
pick up the glove."
"They say that we have no experience and we do not know politics and this is
true. And this is why we have no choice but to hold on to our values and
principles, which are what we do know," he added. "The question vis-à-vis
Netanyahu is not what portfolios we will receive but what values the
government will adopt."
