ped arresting the Hebrew
teachers. He wears an attrac-
tive personality, he presents
more flexibility in arms
negotiations, he sends us
theater troupes and invites
our students on exchange pro-
grams. He has deprived us of
the dramatic individual cases
which used to be the focus of
our struggle.
Yosef Begun has been re-
leased from prison but has no
visa for Israel. No doubt he
will get one — accompanied
by a fanfare of publicity —
whenever the Soviet leader
feels he wants to be seen as
making more "humanitarian
concessions."
The struggle for Soviet
Jewry is no longer a simple
humanitarian campaign for
the rights of persecuted in-
dividuals. It is a struggle for
the survival of an entire peo-
ple doomed to captivity.
The situation today seems
less dramatic, but the real
drama is that we have
reached a critical moment in
the history of the Jews of the
Soviet Union. Their future
will be determined by the ac-
tion we take today.
Our major task is to recap-
ture public opinion. For the
first time, it is not we but the
Soviet-orchestrated "good
news" emanating from Mos-
cow.
Never has there been such
a gap between them and
those who claim to be defend-
ing their cause in the West,
where the Soviet Jewry
organizations are being com-
pletely outmaneuvered.
These organizations con-
tinue to have good intentions,
to hold meetings, to pass
resolutions. But no one is
listening. Even within the
Jewish community, Gorba-
chev has a greater impact on
public opinion than Jewish
organizations.
And if our own community
isn't listening, why should
Gorbachev?
We used to face two major
enemies in our struggle: Ex-
ternally, there was the tyran-
ny of the Soviet Union;
internally, there was our own
despair that nothing we could
do would change the situa-
tion. The Soviet tyranny is
still there, but Gorbachev has
fooled many people into be-
lieving that, left alone, he will
somehow solve the problem
by himself. Our internal
enemy is no longer despair,
but rather the false optimism
born of complacency.
Gorbachev has kidnapped
our principle of linking the
question of Soviet Jewry to
other issues on the interna-
tional agenda and now uses
his own form of "linkage" as
a threat — that if we protest

'Our major task is to recapture
public opinion'

there will be no arms agree-
ment, no trade, no summit.
He has paralyzed the Jews of
the West into silence and
pretends that such silence is
good for the Jews, good for
East-West relations, and good
for the peace process in the
Middle East.
Of course, the reverse is
true. We remain silent while
the Soviets are free to act as
they wish.
Gorbachev, by promising
minor and insubstantial
changes, is using the Jewish
organizations in the West.
The initiative and the
strength with which they
campaigned for so many
years is being undermined by
the new subtleties of Soviet
policy.
Take, for example, the case
of those who are refused exit
visas because they allegedly
possess "state secrets." For
years, the Soviets have
claimed that every Jew could
leave, except those possessing
secrets.
In practice, however, the
Soviets used this "regime con-
sideration" as a reason for
holding anyone. We never
took them seriously.
Earlier this year, Western
Jewish leaders returned from
the Soviet Union claiming
they had "assurances,"
phrased in exactly the same
terms, and presented them as
a sign of important progress.
But since then, more and
more Jews have been refused
for knowing "secrets," and ac-
tivists in our movement in
Moscow are convinced that
the display of western Jewish -
gullibility and the serious
broadening of this problem
are closely linked.
Every visitor returning
from the Soviet Union over
the past few weeks has
reported the usual range of
attitudes and opinions among
the refusenik community, but
on one thing they are all
agreed — now is the time to
act; now is the time to put
Gorbachev to the test and de-
