    My understanding is that the Rebbe always stressed that in order to achieve desirable results with the Russians, one must never embarrass them in public for they will always protect their pride first and foremost.

    Where they got the idea to go down this route with lawsuits and preventing Rabbi Lazar from testifying before congress re. the repeal of Jackson-Vanick, I don’t know.

    It will take a very long time to undo the damage of these actions. May this be a lesson for the future.

    There is at least one option left, although it may prove fruitless. Aguch can sue for enforcement in a Russian court and hope that the Russian court recognizes the US ruling and gives it force. The likelihood of that? Who knows …

    Actually as Nat Lewin has said, once Russia rejects it they could asked the US court to fine Russia every day they do not enforce the judges verdict. Russia has many US assets and bank accounts that will end up costing Russia big time!

    Yup, Continue going down the same route of making noise and antagonizing the Russians. I find it mind-boggling that after the Rebbe spoke so clearly about not doing things this way, people are still thinking along these lines. Your genius suggestion will only push the seforim further back and endanger the shluchim in the FSU

    If i am correct……… When the Rebbe said not to hold public campaigns against the Russians was when it was a communist country and the Yidden were stuck there and the Rebbe was worried about their lives. hardly the case today.

    Duhhhhh

    The Rebbe’s instructions were not only about protecting jewish lives. You can’t bully the Russians – the whole world now sees what the Rebbe was saying for years. When the powers that be tried tooting their horns about getting russia out of the neighboring countries Russia stuck it to them all by invading and causing imense damage to one of its neighbors….
    The oly way to get anything from the Russians is to work with them in a way that doesn’t make them seem vulnerable in any way.
    Nu.
