Worldwide political and economic changes have altered the spatial patterns of international migration (Salt 1989; Castels and Miller 1993; King 1993b; Nijkamp and Spiess 1993, 1994a, 1994b; Gould and Findlay 1994). The political world order during most of the second half of this century revolved around the Cold War between the United States and the USSR and these two superpowers’ control of various parts of the world. When the Communist regime collapsed, bringing down the Iron Curtain between Eastern and Western Europe, Western European and other Western countries experienced new influxes of immigration, requiring special measures by the destination countries. Immigration from the former Soviet Union to Israel is one outcome of the recent worldwide political changes.
