JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised Jonathan Pollard, an American who spent 30 years in U.S. prison for spying for Israel, a warm welcome and a comfortable life in Israel now that parole restrictions have ended. Pollard, 66, said he and his spouse would go to Israel to live, but no date for their travel has been announced. While in prison, the Texas-born Pollard was granted Israeli citizenship, and Israel had long pushed for his release but was spurned by several U.S. presidents. A U.S. Central Intelligence Agency “damage assessment”, made public in 1987, said Pollard had believed U.S. intelligence support of close ally Israel was inadequate. “I truly want to congratulate you that your nightmare is over and you can return home, to Israel,” Netanyahu told Pollard.
