  • Description

    Israeli immigration authorities have been embarrassed at settlement dissatisfactions expressed by some Jews emigrating from the Soviet Union. Approximately 1,000 Russian Jews are arriving in Israel each week, many of them from Soviet Republic of Georgia where they have been accustomed to living in their own isolated communities. On arrival is Israel, however, many families are....of necessity....being sent to different towns and cities. This has prompted some to stage sit-down strikes at points of arrival such as Lod Airport near Tel Aviv. Their refusal to be separated from other families, Israeli officials allege, is being exploited by Russian secret agents attempting to discourage further Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union.
