Sign Petition to Free Yanky Ostreicher


yaakov-ostreicherThe following petition has been submitted to the White House. You may sign the petition by clicking on the link below.

The text reads:


Exercise the powers vested in you to see to it that Jacob Ostreicher, a US citizen, is freed from Bolivia.

Jacob Ostreicher, an American, has been suffering in a Bolivian prison for more than 11 months. He is being held without a shred of evidence.

On 09/23/2011, the judge ordered his release based on evidence submitted by the defense, just days later the same judge reversed his decision and was promoted. A new judge resigned after 5 scheduled hearings.

We expect that in times of need, our government will be serious about, adamant enough, and powerful enough, to provide its citizens protection and asylum.

In your capacity as President of the U.S., we urge you to exercise the powers vested in you, to see to it that Jacob does not spend another day in this anarchic prison

With all avenues having been exhausted, it is up to you, Mr. President to make sure an innocent man walks free.

  1. Everyone please forward to all your contacts. This is a real Pidyom Shvuim case! The petition needs another 19,000 signatures.

    The family is not collecting funds for him, they just need 30 seconds of your time. Please, everyone, do your utmost to gather as much signatures as possible. “Lo Tamod al dam rayecho”!

    The situation is pikuach nefesh!

  2. We need a new president urgently. If the current occupant of the White House is not anti-Semitic, then:
    * Why are Jonathan Pollard and Sholom Rubashkin suffering in Federal prisons?
    * Why are our bothers and sisters in Israel subject to daily rocket attacks from the Palestinians?
    * Why isn’t something decisive and constructive done regarding Iran?
    * Why are our prominent Jewish neighbors suddenly getting regular visits from uniformed IRS agents?

  3. Mr OHare:

    Maskim the President doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near the Oval Office. Disagree with almost all proof:

    Dinim is one of the Sheva Mitzvos Bnei Noach. Every country must have a criminal justice system. Certain crimes (correct or incorrect) are given harsher sentences. The only thing a President can do is grant a pardon if requested on paper by the convict. Until Pollard and Rubashkin do their step, the President’s hands are tied.

    The President is a bleeding heart liberal who believes that people can kill each other off, but he should not get involved in conflict. He therefore ignores the Iranand Palestinian aggression because he doesn’t have the backbone to get involved.

    IRS agents have no uniforms! Even the IRS criminal investigators are dressed like ordinary citizens with a badge in their pocket. Maybe you are mixing up IRS and INS who wear uniforms. They are there for illegal aliens as witnessed in Postville. In that case maybe it’s time to re-evaluate your definition of prominent neighbor!

    BTW: O’Hare is a nice airport!!

  4. This needs a Petition???!!! Isn’t it the US’s obligation to take care of it’s citizens. Why can’t Bill Clinton fly out there like he did to get the prisoners out of North Korea?

  5. I have an idea to create more petitions.
    Maybe someone could stand outside the Citifield event on Sunday and have people sign the petition. With hopefully 40,000 people in attendance, we should be able to get at least a decent portion of signatures.
