Wayne State University Professors Mobilize Support for Israel; Commend Democratic Aims

Jewish professors at Wayne
State University this week
formed the Conference of
WSU Jewish Faculty, with
the aim of defending Israel's
role in the world society.
Prof. Abraham F. Citron
of the department of educa-
tional sociology was the con-
venor of the group. The
group's initial spokesmen in-
clude Profs. George Barahal,
educational psychology; Rob-
ert Broner, Monteith College;
Esther Broner, English; Ber-
nard Goodman, economics;
Jacob Hurwitz, social work;
Julius Jackson, chemical en-
gineering; and Eva Kahana,
The statement of principles
on the basis of which the
-coup has begun to function
:hides the following:
"We support the state of
Israel in its right to sover-
eignty and secure borders.
We deplore the resumption of
war Oct. 6 by the Arab states.
We condemn the actions of
the Soviet Union, which,
through he supply of huge
amounts of armaments, and
of Soviet advisory personnel
has encouraged Arab aggres-
sion .. •
"The building of a modern
democracy attendant to the
welfare of its people has been
the central concern of this
new nation. Israel is a plur-
alistic society encompassing
collective settlements and pri-
vate ownership, communal
concepts and capitalistic en-
terprise. It is a Jewish state
with religious and political
freedoms for all the inhabi-
tants. This vigorous democ-
racy has a dozen political
parties and newspapers rep-
resenting their varying
views. . .
"The death of any human
being fighting for any flag
anywhere is a tragedy, the
more deep because it does
not have to happen; but Is-
rael is so small that the
death of a single soldier is
not only a tragic loss to loved
ones in humanistic terms but
a military and national catas-
trophe. Israel has no natural
resources beyond some re-
claimed land, air, sunlight
and some water; it does not
have billions in oil resources
as do the Arab nations.
"Israel's greatest resource
is its people. It seeks only
two goals, and these are inex-
tricably intertwined; guaran-
tees for its survival and
peace. Israel must have
__peace. The peace sought by
Israel and urged by the
United States has so far been
spurned by the Soviet Union
and by Arab governments.
"We commend the govern-
ment of the United States for
its determination to supply
Israel with arms necessary
to its survival and to redress
the balance of power in the
Eddie East.
"We welcome the cease
fire and hope that it can lead
to a just and stable peace, a
peace in which all borders
will be inviolate and secure;
a peace in which full efforts
and manpower in the whole
area may be turned to up-
building the land and raising
standards of living.
"We urge our colleagues
and our fellow citizens to
stand by Israel in its strug-
gle for survival and in its
quest for peace, and tranquil-
ity for ALL the peoples of
the Middle East."
52 Scholars From 8 Nations
Criticize European Govts.
for Complacency on War
BOSTON—A statement in
support of Israel and critical

of Western nations for com-
placent attitudes toward the
Middle East war was signed
by 52 scholars attending the
International Conference on
the University Emergency in
Vienna last week.
The scholars represented
eight European nations plus

the U. S. Nathan Glazer, pro-
fessor of education and social
structure at Harvard, said
the idea of the statement
was to show that "a public
opinion for Israel exists in
Glazer, Harvard Prof. Sey-
mour Martin Upset and Ed-

ward Shils of the University
of Chicago drafted the two-
page document. The 37 Euro-
pean educators represented
Great Britain, Italy, France,
Sweden, Germany, Nether-
lands, Belgium and Switzer-
The statement said that

while the scholars have not
been unanimous in their at-
titude toward Israel's poli-
cies in the past, "we agree
now that it is of overriding
importance that Israel sur-
vive and that a genuine peace

be established in the Middle
T h e scholars expressed
their regret that "some of
our governments have been
complacent or worse in the
face of Arab aggression.
