Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard was released on Friday after 30 years in a U.S. prison, receiving a muted response from Israel's prime minister in a case that has strained relations between the two allies.Pollard, a former civilian intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy, was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted in 1987 of passing classified information to Israel. A U.S. official said Obama did not have any plans to alter the terms of his parole to allow Pollard leave the United States.Pollard who was granted Israeli citizenship while in prison, has said he wants to emigrate to Israel, where his second wife lives and where he can expect to receive substantial Israeli government back pay.
