fessors on campuses across
North America, the Soviet
authorities are persecuting
Shcharansky because "he
personifies the link between
Jews actively seeking emig-
ration and the movement
for democratic change in the
USSR."
Appalled by this persecu-
tion of Shcharansky "which
could make a dissent or
emigration a form of
treason," the professors
"called upon the U.S. gov-
ernment to spare no efforts
to secure Shcharansky's
freedoni."

They urged the Soviet
Union, "as a matter of
right" to "release
Shcharansky im-
mediately and permit
him to leave for Israel
and rejoin his wife."
Shcharansky was ar-
rested on March 15, 1977
in Moscow and has been
held in the notorious
Lefortovo Prison.

In Washington, Ambas-
sador Arthur J. Goldberg,
who headed the American
delegation at the Belgrade
conference to review the
Helsinki Final Act, charged
that the ideals to which the
Soviet Union has commit-

ted itself in the Final Act
are far from realization.
He said this was evi-
denced by the fact that Jews
in the USSR are still unable
to exercise freely their right
to emigrate, to practice
their religion or develop
their culture and by the
Soviet Union's inclination
"to retreat for a time into
retribution" when con-
fronted with "honest criti-
cism."
Meanwhile, Sen. Henry
M. Jackson (D-Wash.)
warned that some members
of the Senate are attempt-
ing to circumvent the
Jackson Amendment to the
U.S. Foreign Trade Act
which links American trade
and financial transactions
with the Soviet Union to the
latter's easing of its restric-
tions on emigration and
general compliance with
human rights agreements.
He urged that such
measures must be de-
feated on the Senate floor
or in the realm of public
opinion "if personal per-
suasion doesn't work."
In a related development,
the United States replied to
Soviet complaints concern-
ing anti-Soviet demonstra-
tions, declaring that the
demonstrations "did not
violate the provisions of the
federal law on the protec-
tion of diplomatic personnel
and official guests of the
United States of America."
In a letter addressed to
the Soviet Union Mission to
the United Nations, Am-
bassador James F Leonard,
Acting Representative of
the U.S., said "The United
States Mission' to the Un-
ited Nations deplores all ir-
responsible actions by
American citizens against
USSR Mission personnel or
its properties and we will
continue to take necessary
measures to prevent such
incidents." But the U.S. also
said that American law al-
lows citizens to demonstrate
peacefully.
It was also learned that in
a meeting in Jerusalem be-
tween Prime Minister
Menahem Begin and offic-
ers of the Union of Councils
for Soviet Jews, the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry
and British Soviet Jewry
groups together with
Nechemiah Levanon and
Chaim Landau of the Israeli
Foreign Ministry, Begin

Disco Pardes by

made an unprecedented
public commitment to work
with Soviet Jewry activists
in the West, pledging the
cooperation of the foreign
ministry with the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews
and the SSSJ.
