Hit Daoud Release
The Michigan Legislature has, protested the release of Palestinian terrorist Abu
Daoud by the French government. The Senate joined the House in overwhelmingly
approving House Concurrent Resolution 13, which urges the President and Congress
to protest Daoud's release. The resolution was sponsored by House Majority Floor ,
Leader Joseph Forbes (D-Oak Park) and Speaker Bobby D. Crim (D-Davison).
"The release came despite a request from the West German government that
Daoud be extradited to stand trial for his alleged part in the Munich massacre," Crim
said. "That release, in the words of the resolution, is a blot on international justice and
an encouragement of further acts of terror and murder. It was a very regrettable
Last week, France was sharply condemned by the U.S. Senate for releasing
Daoud, and the Carter Administration was urged by the Senate to consult promptly
with France and other friendly nations to prevent the recurrence of such an episode.
The combined action was taken in a sense-of-the-Senate resolution which was sup-
ported by 93 Senators, seven short of the chamber's full membership. The seven
members were absent.
The resolution was adopted after a 20-minute discussion during which its co-
authors — Sens. Hubert H. Humphrey (D. Minn.), Clifford Case (R. NJ) and Jacob K.
Javits (R. NY) — denounced France's action as encouragement to terrorists.
In related actions, American labor leaders condemned France's action. Separate
statements expressing shock and revulsion
were issued by Thomas Gleason, International
Longshoremen's Association president; Alvin
E. Heaps, Retail, Wholesale and Department
Store Union president; Albert Shanker, Ameri-
can Federation of Teachers president; and

For Detroiters there is a special interest in this latest academic accomplish-
ment which was attained by three scientists, two of them former Detroiters.
Nine years ago, upon earning their doctorates in physics at the University of
. Chicago, the two Detroiters, Arthur Greenfield and Nathan Aviezer (Wieser)Ivent
on aliya, as Bar-Ilan academics. They were joined by another scholar who was
awarded his PhD degree, Marshall Luban. The three assumed their professorial
roles at Bar-Ilan and before the end of the decade their devoted efforts have
vated the scientific aspirations of university professors in Israel for one, of the
te hest attainable marks in the country. The achievements are ascribable to the
ccess attained by the Greenfield-Aviezer-Luban team in the planning and com-
pletion of the physics building which has merited widest recognition for the ar-
chitectural planning and scientific accuracies, for the most impressive factors it
incorporates, for teaching and for studies. .
Profs. Greenfield, Aviezer and Luban secured a grant of 6,000,000 Israeli
Pounds from the Rothschild Foundation in Geneva, in 1970. At the rate of exchange
at that time it exceeded $1,800,000. Government and other grants and individual
gifts provided the necessary total for this magnificent building which now attracts
the attention of scientists, academics and tourists in general from the entire world.
Their joint efforts marked the academic partnership that was established by
the two Bar-Ilan leaders in physics teaching and research. Greenfield and Aviezer
studied at Yeshivath Beth Yehuda, both were graduated from the Detroit school
that pioneered in Day School teaching, both pursued their studies under Rabbi
Bakst in the Talmud and advanced Jewish courses.
Both studied and were graduated from Wayne State University, and pursued -
their advanced physics studies at the University of Chicago. Both made research
