Shcharanskys:
Real Heroes

Your referring in the editorial
of Feb. 14 to Anatoly
Shcharansky as an authentic
hero, indeed, strikes the right
note, as is his Avital a woman of
valor. His occasional naming her,
in the reports of his ordeal, shows
more eloquently than words, the
deep affection that obtains be-
tween them; a most enduring
sentiment that must have helped
them both with fortitude and
hope while subject to incarcera-
tion and what appeared as a
bleak horizon — but not dispair.
Doubtless their return to Jewish
sanctities was the mainspring of
their courage ...
Anatoly Shcharansky is only
38 years old. In the years ahead
in Israel he will assuredly be
heard from.

Isaac London

Solving The
Yerida Problem

Finally, a well-written article
(Feb. 14, "Why Are Jews Leaving
The Promised Land?") on Israel's
catastrophic yordim problem
which all too long has been glos-
sed over with the wishfull pre-
tension that it will simply go
away.
Israel's official attitude is usu-
ally ambivalent, and a weak case
could be made for the thought
that the country is better off
without these deserter-yordim
("if you can't take the heat, get
out of the kitchen") who are usu-
ally motivated by greed: 'the
fleshpots are too tempting, as,
conversely, is a prospective low-
cost employee.
Of particular irony are yordim
employed for interminable years
by Israel-supporting organiza-
tions, even though the hiring in-
tent was to temporarily fill a vac-
ancy, until a local person had
been found to permanently fill
that job ...
Israel can plug a lot of this dis-
• astrous population drain by
adopting steps effectively used by
other democracies: Those who re-
ceive a university education sub-
sidized in part or totally with
public funds are required to
repay the government before
leaving. Recipients of other gov-
ernment grants or subsidies are
treated in the same manner.
Israel, being nearly forty years
old and a leading political and
military factor, can no longer af-
ford to consider her inhabitants
perennial welfare cases or in-
fants. She should begin to treat

all government payouts as long-
term obligations of the recipient.
Repayments must be used to es-
tablish a revolving fund for
futureolim assistance.
Israelis deserting their country
without appropriate clearances
can be taxed accordingly in ab-
sentia, and these taxes, plus
debts and debt service, can be col-
lected upon their return.
Those compelled to leave the
country by restrictive currency
regulations which deprive them
of their Nazi restitutions or simi-
lar benefits can be accommodates
with suitable exemptions. The
large Israeli group in Germany,
living there because they could
not truly use their restitutions at
home, does little to enhance Is-
rael's image.
Foreign employers can be dis-
couraged from enticing Israelis to
leave their country. Any em-
ployment offer, unless certified to
be in the national interest, can be
restricted to clearly-defined pro-
fessional training on a time-
limited basis, at prevailing local
remuneration levels. This would
give Israeli industry additional
and urgently needed training and
put some money in the trainee's
pocket.

Find Out About The

Peace, Soviets,
Czechs, Kahane

I came to the U.S.A. recently
from Czechoslovakia, so I hope
you will understand that my
English is far from perfect.
I would like to make several
remarks: the article of Dr. Steve
Daniels "An Activist Argues
Against Star Wars, Nuclear
Arms" (Jewish News, Feb. 21) is
full of statements showing politi-
cal immaturity. Dr. Daniels
writes that "Soviet IPPNW
members have been influential in
convincing their government of
the insanity of nuclear war."
Is he really so naive that he
thinks the Soviet government
can be convinced of anything by
anybody? Probably he is if he is a
leading member of IPPNVV, an
organization which (as other
similar organizations) can never
be of.any positive influence upon
the peace on earth.
The only factor, which can play
a positive role is a militarily
strong U.S.A. But Dr. Daniels
apparently thinks that the oppo-
site is true.
In his article he even attributes
some really peaceful activity to
the USSR. I think Dr. Daniels
should become a little more
familiar with the structure and
chardcter of the foreign (and also
inner) policy of the USSR before
he starts making "peace" prop-,
aganda.
The article "U.S. Rights Report
Cites Israeli-Arab Tensions"
(Feb. 21) particularly the sen-
tences "In Romania, the govern-
ment continues to support a
widespread and active Jewish
community organization. The
same is true in Czechoslovakia,"
don't know anything about
Romania, but I know for sure
