For many, former Soviet refusenik Natan Sharansky is one of Israel's modern day heroes.  From 1977 to 1986, the Soviet Union imprisoned Sharansky on false charges of spying for the US when all he wanted was to immigrate to the Jewish homeland. He was finally freed in a prisoner swap with the US in February 1986 and immigrated to Israel. That same year he was awarded the US Congressional Medal of Honor.  CBN's Scott Ross interviewed Sharansky last week about immigration.  Sharansky told Ross how he himself decided to move to Israel.
