The Orthodox Union criticized a rabbi who said Jewish law might allow Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn.) to be assassinated for not supporting the immediate release of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard. According to the New Haven Register, Rabbi Mordechai Freedman of the American Board of Rabbis also called Lieberman a “traitor” for not doing more for Pollard, a former naval intelligence analyst who is serving a life sentence for passing secret U.S. military information to Israel.
