Kingfisher: Complete & Unabridged
The student's arrest was witnessed by only a small minority. It took place without siren, without flashing light and, more ominously, it was not mentioned in the Kiev news. The nature of this arrest did however, prompt the other three students(all Ukranian Jews) to try for freedom- their aim being to escape to Israel via Europe. Hijacking a plane and making for the West, they are refused help by one country after another. Unable to bargain with hijackers as a matter of moral principle, many of the Western countries face a dilemma; not only are the hijackers Jewish, but also have hijacked an enemy plane. This provokes divided sympathies so that when the plane inevitably runs out of fuel and is forced to land in England, the authorities have to decide whether these men should be treated as political refugees or as murderous criminals.
