    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 6): "That all of us Jews, whether we are American Jews, English Jews, Israeli Jews or Dutch Jews could try hard to raise our voice to get freedom, that's all we want, freedom for the people, for our people, who want to leave Russia. I don't think all three million Jews want to leave Russia, but the ones who want to leave should be permitted to leave. We should raise our voice wherever we are for this purpose. Thank you very much."
