Pollard Awareness Among American Jews

I've blogged about the continuing injustice against Jonathan Pollard many times in the past. I have also noticed the lack of interest among American Jewry and American jbloggers regarding Pollard's fate. Once I wrote the following:
I cry not for Jonathan Pollard. True, he is suffering. However, I cry for American Jewry which has apparently lost its backbone, if it ever had one.
Therefore I was very pleased to see the following today from Boker Tov, Boulder:
I have never wanted to blog about Jonathan Pollard. In fact, I never wanted to learn about Jonathan Pollard. I remember feeling slightly guilty when I heard (or read?) David HaIvri say that if American Jews really want to do something to help Israel, they should address the Jonathan Pollard situation. I felt slightly guilty and I imagined he was right, but I didn't so much as Google Pollard. Why? Because I knew that if I found out about it, if I knew about it, I would be obligated to do something.
Read the rest. I hope that this is a sign that American Jewry is waking up with regards to Jonathan Pollard. Way to go, Anne.
