n1924, the Technion-Israel
Institute of Technology
opened with the vision of
becoming a world-class university
that would advance the building
of the Jewish state, enrich the
region and shape the future of
humankind. In that same year in
Jerusalem, a child was born: Amos
This child would grow up to be
the one who would help make the
Technion founding vision a reality. Maj.
Maj. Gen. Amos Horev presented a
history of the Haifa-based univer-
sity at the American Teclmion Society
(ATS) Detroit Chapter board installa-
tion on Nov. 7 in West Bloomfield.
At age 17, Horev joined the Pahnach,
the elite force of the Jewish resistance
movement, the Haganah. During the
1948 War of Independence, he discov-
ered the Burma Road to Jerusalem,
which gave Israel an alternative
approach to the capital after the forces
had failed to take Latrun. His military
career, which adopted an increasingly
technological capacity with every year,
was vital in securing the State of Israel.
As Technion president in 1973, shortly
before the outbreak of the Yom Kippur
War, Horev realized and understood
that this war had created a new agenda
of needs for securing the future.
Technion took on a higher calling.
"We succeeded in leading and direct-
ing developments, laying the founda-
tions for a new attitude to high science
and technology in the era of the Yom
Kippur War and cleared the way for the
high-tech boom which was to follow,"
Horev went on to become the chair-
man of the Israel Technion Society,
general manager of the Bank Leumi
Investment Company and board chair-
man of RAFAEL.
Also at the Nov. 7 installation, the
ATS Detroit Chapter board installed
Jerome J. Kanter as president and Scott
Leemaster as chairman along with

Kenneth Bassey, Ronald Bassey, Arline

Israel's Cr itics
Four times in recent months, the
United Nations Human Rights
Council has strongly condemned
Even outgoing U.N. Secretary-
General Kofi Annan has reacted
to the impression that the Human
Rights Council is one-sided and
obsessed with Israel. Wondering
aloud whether the Council has a •
sense of fair play, he was quoted
this month as saying that the
Council should broaden its focus
beyond the Palestinian-Israeli
issue and to the clear human rights
violations taking place in Darfur,
Myanmar and North Korea.
