American and Israeli officials denied reports that Israel plans to offer to free a jailed Palestinian militiaman if the United States grants clemency to Jonathan Pollard. Army Radio reported Sunday that Israel would make the proposal to swap Pollard for Marwan Barghouti, who is serving five life prison sentences for orchestrating Palestinian terrorist attacks, after Prime Minister-elect Ehud Olmert forms a government.
