the organization.
Some university officials
and students were opposed to
funding the trip while the
MSA is $30,000 in debt.
Others questioned the fun-
ding on philosophical
grounds.
As part of their tuition, U-
M students pay $6.77 each
semester to the MSA, which
allocates money to student
groups.
Says U-M junior Jennifer
Van Valey, president of MSA,
"We feel the money was well
spent. As the student govern-
ment, we believe strongly in
standing in solidarity with
students who don't have the
same freedom we do."
U-M senior Danya Hoff-
man, co-chairman of Union of
Students for Israel, says the
funding of student groups has
become "very political." Ms.
Hoffman says she applied to
MSA for $750 to help pay
costs associated with the an-
nual Israel Conference Day,
but MSA granted her group
$250. The sixth annual event

was held in March and at-
tracted 400 participants.
Says Ms. Hoffman, "In past
years we have gotten $750.
This year I was told on the
phone that there are a lot of
budget constraints at MSA.
Not too many months later,
they allocated $1,000 to PSC."
She says, "One of the ways
they decide funding is by how
many students your event
will affect. MSA's allocations
are supposed to serve the
students and university. The
PSC trip abroad involved two
people, and one is not a stu-
dent?'
Adds Ms. Hoffman, "We
asked Rackham for funding
as well. We got zero."

Mr. Levin and Mr. Vasquez
will be reporting the results
of their trip to the Gaza Strip
and West Bank in various on-
campus presentations during
the academic year. There are
five presentations, some of
which will include a slide
show scheduled for
September.

A

recent trip to Israel
has convinced two
Detroit area Jews
that a two-state solution is
the only peaceful way to end
the fighting between the
Israeli government and the
Palestinians.

Leonard Grossman and
Rudy Simons were among a
21-member interfaith dele-
gation organized by Epis-
copal Bishop R. Stewart
Wood which visited Israel,
the West Bank and the Gaza
Strip for two weeks at the
end of July. Bishop Wood,
who had never been to

Israel, wanted to go with a
group of people who had diff-
erent perspectives on the Pa-
lestinian-Israeli conflict.
The delegation, composed
of Jews, Christians and
Moslems, did not take the
standard tourist trip, Mr.
Grossman said.
Headquartered in
Jerusalem, the group trav-
eled to Tel Aviv, Nazareth,
three refugee camps, a 'Kib-
butz, Jewish settlements on
the West Bank, the Gaza
Strip, and Arab villages in
the West Bank and the
Galilee. They spoke to politi-
cians and Israeli and Pales-
tinian human rights organ-
izations.
