BY STEVE KNOPPER

Both the faculty and student govemmenth
have passed a proposal to reconvene the panel
that writes student conduct rules.
The faculty's Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs voted unanimously
yesterday to reconvene the University
Council, a nine•member committee of
students, faculty, and adminismuors.
The Michigan Swdent Assembly, during
its meeting Iasi week, passed the proposal
which will now head to the University's
esecuthe ollions for consideration
SACUA chair Beth Reed, a professor of
social work said she hoped the council could
meet by early December, and that SACUA
wand start interviewing faculty to Sane on
the Nast this week.
MSA officials said last week they hope to
appoint members by the middle of the month,
so the council will be prepared to meet before
December.
The council's future has been in doubt

kind of double standard corn-
mon to the political left and
old-fashioned Jew baiting?'
The editorial read, in part:
The. censure of Kahane is a
cynical maneuver on the part
of Israel, because Zionism —
the official ideology , of the
state — is from its inception
a racist construct."
"A lot of Jewish students
are sick and tired of this kind
of written assault,"
Endelman says, "and they're
doing something about it?'
Last week, flyers went up
around campus calling for a
response to the Daily and its
editorials. According to
Zalesin, about 35 students --
including members of other
minority groups — met to ad-
dress concerns provoked by
the Daily generally and the
Nov. 1 editorial specifically.
"As a group, we decided that
our short-term goal is to
educate the campus," says
Zalesin, who helped coor-
dinate the meeting.
Some representatives from
the Daily were in attendance.
Zalesin and others pointed
out at the meeting that say-
ing Zionism is racist strips
the Jewish people of a na-
tionality and self-
determination that is granted
to other national groups.
"Some people can't separate
Israeli policy and hatred of
Jews," says Zalesin. They're
using the Daily to promote
their own agenda."
Zalesin and others think
it's necessary to counteract
such anti-Semitism. "We
want (the editorial staff) to be
held • accountable," Zalesin
says. "Our long-term goal can
only be to change the Daily by
infiltrating it."
"I know there's been a pro-
blem," admits Rebecca
Blumenstein, the Daily's
editor-in-chief. "I'm very con-
cerned about the allegations?'
Blumenstein says the pro-
cess of determining editorial
subjects and content at the
Daily is run on a democratic

basis. If a majority of staff
members attending editorial
board meetings decide to
voice a certain editorial posi-
tion, that's the opinion that
will run.
"Admittedly, the pro-
Palestinian students have
been more energized, more
active," she says.
The slings and arrows
pointed to the Daily aren't on-
ly coming from outside:
There's been considerable
tension within the paper
itself. "It's schizophrenic,"
says Endelman. Many — even
those who write for the paper
— would agree. Some staffers
have left the paper in disgust.
Others have switched from
one section of the paper to
another where's there's less
contentiousness.
Events came to a head on
Nov. 5 when new staff posi-
tions — including those for
the opinion page — were
elected and a new editorial
policy was adopted. Whether
these actions will change the
direction of the paper remains
to be seen.
Blumenstein, whose tenure
as editor-in-chief ends in
February, says she hopes to
meet soon with concerned
students to help resolve some
of the misunderstandings
that have surfaced recently.
"I tried to tell people that
the Daily is open to all
students," she says.
