Jerusalem — The Soviet
Jewry Zionist Forum may
soon turn to the High Court
of Justice to ensure that the
organization's represen-
tatives are present when
Soviet immigrants are in-
itially processed at Ben-
Gurion Airport, it was
learned last week.
The Forum, headed by
Natan Sharansky, has for a
number of months sought
Absorption Ministry permis-
sion to place representative
alongside the government
clerks who deal with the
immigrants upon arrival.
The ministry has so far
refused.
Upon arrival at Ben-
Gurion, each immigrant
receives a form for an identi-
ty card, membership in a
health fund, his new oleh
certificate and about $100 to
get him through the first
night in Israel.
Speaking in Jerusalem
two weeks ago, Sharansky
said: "Some bureaucrats,
who work very hard at the
airport, don't want people
there to advise the olim,
because the olim will then
make make more demands
on them."
In a letter addressed to
Absorption Minister Yit-
zhak Peretz in September,
Sharansky wrote: "I am sure
that the clerks of the Ab-
sorption Ministry are
faithfully doing their jobs.
But the process requires
immediate decisions, and
the immigrant leaves there
with the feeling that things
are being forced on him
without his being able to
seek advice, in his language,
from someone not part of the
system."
Peretz's reply to this letter
was that Russian speakers
will be found "who know
how to explain to the im-
migrant, in their language,
everything he needed to
know in order to make his
arrival more pleasant and
ensure a successful absorp-
tion."
Ministry spokeswoman Ida
Ben-Shitrit said that her
ministry employs numerous
Russian speakers at the air-
port. She explained that
dozens of organizations want
their representatives to be
present when the im-
migrants arrive. But
because the initial process-
ing takes place in cramped
quarters, it is impossible to
allow entrance to members
of any of the organizations,
she said.

She denied claims that
representatives of Gush
Emunim are among those
greeting the immigrants,
and said that represen-
tatives of the country's
various youth groups are the
only people at the airport
besides clerks, journalists
and visiting politicians.

Awad's Brother
Denied Visa

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Israeli authorities are refus-
ing to grant an entry visa to
Alex Awad, an American
citizen of Palestinian origin,
who has been engaged to
serve as minister of the Bap-
tist Church in East
Jerusalem.
Although important
American political and re-
ligious figures, including
some Jewish groups, have
appealed on his behalf, their
intervention has been futile.
The Interior Ministry,
which is in charge of entry
permits, says Awad is in-
eligible because he
overstayed his last visa. He
also worked here without a
permit, according to Min-
istry spokeswoman Tova
Ellison.
But many are convinced
the reason is political.
Alex Awad is a brother of
Dr. Mubarak Awad, who
headed the Center for Non-
Violent Studies in East
Jerusalem, which for-
mulated ideas for non-
violent Palestinian
resistance to the Israeli
presence in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip.
The Awad family lived in
East Jerusalem until the
late 1960s, when they moved
to the United States.
Mubarak returned in
1983. Alex, an ordained
Baptist minister, came to
Bethlehem in 1987 and
taught at the Baptist college
there.
He was deported in June
1988, eight months after his
tourist visa expired.
His requests for a new visa
have been repeatedly de-
nied. Awad now lives in
Ohio.
A religious watchdog
group, the Rabbinic Human
Rights Watch committee, is
urging the Israeli govern-
ment to reconsider.
One of its leaders, Rabbi
David Forman, appealed to
Interior Minister Arye Deri.
