Throughout Israel, Jews demonstrated revulsion at the trial and at Moscow's refusal to let Soviet Jews emigrate to Israel. Schoolchildren in Tel Avly chanted "let my people g6" be^ fore the Finnish Embassy, which handles Soviet affairs in Israel, Pupils in Haifa asked in a telegram,to the White House that President Nixon intervene. The southern city of Eilat cabled Mayor Sam Yorty of Los Angeles, Eilat's sister city, asking support for the condemned men. Even flakah, the pro-Moscow Communist party of Israel, asked that the death sentences be modified. But it sent a letter to Soviet President Nikolaiv. Podgorny condemning an "anti-Soviet propaganda campaign" it said was being waged in Israel- Premier Golda Meir told the Knesset, Israel's parliament, that the defendants' only crime was that "they dared approach the Soviet authorities to let them go to Israel." the defendants wanted to emigrate not as a protest against the Soviet government, she ssaid, but because of a "national awakening ... for the right to join their own pe&ple." Then the Knesset, unanimously adopted a resolution calling on "enlightened mankind" to in tervene with the Kremlin to free .the two defendants sentenced to death and the eight other Jews and one gentile tried with them.
