Soviet Immigration
Has Israel Motivated

Mark Schlussel and Moshe Arad answer questions.

srael Ambassador to the
United States Moshe
Arad sees the Middle
East peace process and the
emigration of Soviet and E-
thiopian Jews to Israel as
intertwined.
"They all have to be con-
fronted at the same time,"
said Arad at a gathering of
communal leaders Monday
at the home of Robert and
Susan Sosnick in Bloomfield
Hills. Arad spoke earlier
Monday at the Detroit Econ-
omic Club. He shared the
podium with El Sayed Abdel
Raouf El Reedy, Egypt's
ambassador to the United
States.
Arad told those attending
the Sosnick gathering that
Israelis "are finding a
renewed purpose as Israel
once again becomes a place
of refuge." The cost is high —
$15,000 for the first year for
the average family of three
immigrants — and Israelis
are already the highest tax-
ed nation in the Free World.
But Arad saw tremendous
enthusiasm in Israel for the
mass immigration when he
visited home in December.
The costs will take a major
leap if Israel gains a pro-
jected 100,000 Soviet
emigres in 1990. In 1988,
Israel received 24,000 immi-
grants from throughout the
world, the majority from the
Soviet Union.
With projections of
100,000 Soviet newcomers in
1990 and 150,000 in 1991,

Israel has budgeted $2
billion for transportation,
housing, schools, medical
services and jobs. The am-
bassador stressed jobs, ask-
ing his audience to consider
"sound economic in-
vestments in Israel" to pro-
vide employment oppor-
tunities.
Jewish Welfare Federation
President Mark Schlussel,
while introducing Arad,
commented on the tension
Jews in the Soviet Union are
now facing from nationalist
extremist groups.
"The circumstances today
are as fluid as they have
ever been," Schlussel said.
"The cultural destruction of
Soviet Jews is now being
followed by the threat of
physical destruction. The
Soviet people are looking for
scapegoats and they have
found them once again in the
Soviet Jews."
Ambassador Arad said
Israel is preparing an
emergency plan using
military camps for housing
in case the orderly immigra-
tion became an evacuation
forced by pogroms.
He called for United States
pressure on Hungary and
the Soviet Union to resume
charter flights from Moscow
to Budapest. The
Hungarians caved in last
week to Arab pressure and
threats of terrorism in
halting the major exit route
for Soviet Jews. Arad also
chastised the Soviets and the
Arabs, saying the cancella-
tion, and reneging on the
