Democratic presidential candidate Bill Bradley reiterated his campaign themes of gun control and health care in a speech at a Brooklyn yeshiva. Addressing about 150 fervently Orthodox leaders and hundreds of young students at the Beth Jacob girls school in Borough Park, he also said he has “fought anti-Semitism whenever it reared its ugly head” and has been a longtime supporter of Israel. Asked afterward whether Jonathan Pollard should be released after serving 14 years for spying for Israel, he said he would not be able to take a position until he reviews the clemency reports, which are not available to him.
