THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

that came into force on Jan.
1, 1987, the exit and entrance
procedure in the USSR has
been further facilitated. As
for restrictions, they are con-
nected, above all, with state
security just like in any other
country. A Soviet citizen is
refused exit if he is privy to
state secrets, or anything else
that involves state security,
or if there are legal grounds
to charge him with a crimi-
nal offense.
When these obstacles are
eliminated, the restrictions
are lifted and the application
may be reconsidered. In this
way, more than 8,000 persons
who had been refused exit
initially have received per-
mission to leave in the past
ten years.
At the same time, it must
be mentioned that there is a
growing number of people
among the immigrants who
are disappointed with their
decision and are trying to re-
turn. According to the Visa
Department of the Ministry
of the Interior of the USSR,
their number has reached
several thousands today.
The choice - of a country of
residence is a strictly per-
sonal matter, yet a subjective
evaluation of the processes
taking place in various coun-
tries is clearly not sufficient.
What we need is concrete
facts, and the facts say that
Western appraisals of who is
leaving the USSR and why
need correcting.

the USSR and USA were the
initiators of the establish-
ment of the Jewish state of
Israel, and helped Jewish
families reunite, including
those who were in the USSR.
Gradually, the number of ap-
plications for exit to Israel
and other Western countries
dropped. This was natural for
the majority of those who
wished to had left. Therefore,
the figure of 400,000 Jews
eager to leave the USSR
sometimes cited by leading
figures in the West cannot be
taken seriously. The real
number of applications for
exit visas was about 10,000
at the beginning of the year.
As before, the majority are
those who wish to join mem-
bers of their families abroad,
and there are those who, for
some reason or other, are dis-
satisfied with life in the
USSR and believe that they
will have more opportunities
for developing their talents in
Israel or the United States,
and still others who expect to
get rich overnight when they
arrive in the West.
Those who made up their
minds to leave were never
detained against their will.

New York (JTA) - There
is nothing wrong with dual
loyalty, says Israeli writer
Amos Elon. Fear to express
this is a cultural vestige, he
says, and leads to the kind of
queasiness that surrounds
the Jonathan Pollard spy
case.
Elon spoke before a con-
clave of the New Israel Fund.
The issue of dual loyalty
was brought up as a , natural
question following upon
Elon's strong suggestion that
American Jews raise their
voices in criticism of Israeli
policies, and followed up a
controversy begun three
weeks ago when Israeli polit-
ical theorist Shlomo Avineri
wrote an "open letter to an
American friend" in which he
charged that American
Jewish leaders exhibited a
galut mentality in reaction to
the Pollard case.
In his letter, published in
the Jerusalem Post, Avineri
accused prominent American
Jewish leaders of "cringing"
in fear of charges of dual loy-
alty."
"I would say that I for one
am not so much scared of it.

Why not have dual loyalty, or
even triple loyalty?" Elon
asked. "Of course," he an-
swered himself, "fright of
dual loyalty is based on
fragile understanding, and
that's why I'm so angry at
the Israeli government's pre-
carious balance in hiring the
`poor shnook, Pollard.'
"It would help if American
Jews would not be as consis-
tent as they have been in, the
past" in supporting Israel
without differentiating be-
tween what they really be-
lieve and what they think
they should believe. "I wish
you would meddle more,"
Elon told the audience.
"The true miracle of Israeli
life is that after .40 years of
warfare, Israel has remained
a fairly decent society with-
out being afraid of airing its
problems," Elon said. Ameri-
can Jews have usually felt
they should refrain from
criticizing Israel, he said, in
contradistinction to Israelis'
own compulsion to criticize
themselves and their gov-
ernment. "How can American
Jews' interference affect Is-
rael if Israelis can't?"
