"If diversity and pluralism
include only under-repre-
sented groups and not ethnic
groups or Jews ... then it re-
ally affects the climate in
which a professor teaches."
Mrs. Simon, the interim
provost, has met with the as-
sociation once since she took
her post last September and
plans to meet with members
again this month. She said
she has also met with orga-
nizers of the Jewish Student
Union.
Though they are not spon-
sored by the university,
members of the Jewish
Faculty and Staff Association
say a formal group is neces-
sary to get their points across
to the university's adminis-
tration. Though members
have different views, they
agree that without a unified

voice their concerns will go
unheard.
Similar groups exist at
MSU, including the Gay and
Lesbian Faculty and Staff
Association, the Women's
Faculty and Staff Association
and the Black Faculty and
Administrators Association.
Students have organized
groups along the same lines.
Professor Waltzer called
the university's approach to
minority groups "formalized --\
pluralism — dealing with fac- -
ulty, staff, and students of
diverse backgrounds by
putting them into organiza-
tions and dealing with them
in groups ...
"If you don't have a
spokesperson, a formalized
group, you're not in the
game," said Professor
Waltzer. "You can't play."

Prominent Turk
Survives Attack

New York (JTA) — A
leading figure in the
Turkish Jewish community
survived an attack on his life
last week in Istanbul, accor-
ding to reports from Turkey.
Five heavily armed un-
identified gunmen opened
fire Jan. 28 on the armored
car of businessman Jak
Kamhi, whose guards
returned fire. The gunmen
escaped, leaving behind an
anti-tank rocket, assault
rifles, pistols and hand
grenades.
Mr. Kamhi, 68, who is
chairman of the
Quincentennial Foundation
of Istanbul, was unhurt.
The attack took place four
days after a prominent
Ankara journalist was killed
by a car bomb. But sources
said the two incidents were
not necessarily linked.
In the earlier attack, three
pro-Iranian Moslem groups
and a Kurdish rebel party
took responsibility for the
Jan. 24 killing of Ugur
Mumcu, who was an in-
vestigative reporter for the
leading daily Cumhuriyet,
where he had often criticized
militant Islamic forces.
Protesters of his killing
marched through Istanbul
the day after the journalist's
death, passing the Iranian
Consulate, where they called
out, "Here are the
murderers."
Word of the attack on
Kamhi upset colleagues here
in the Jewish and specifical-
ly Sephardic communities.
Mr. Karnhi is a member of

the executive committee of
the World Sephardi Federa-
tion.
"He is one of the finest
people that ever put two feet
on this planet," said Ed
Alcosser, chairman of the
board of the American
Sephardi Federation.
"He worked the last two
years on promoting
tolerance between Muslims
and Jews," said Mr.
Alcosser. "That is what the
Quincentennial Foundation
of Istanbul is all about."
Abraham Foxman, na-
tional director of the Anti-
Defamation League, wrote
Mr. Kamhi a letter express-
ing outrage at the attack.
"Terrorists are using
Turkey as a shooting gallery
to undermine democracy,"
Mr. Foxman said. "It is time
that the international com-
munity refocus its efforts —
moral and political — on
those who engage in terror-
ism rather than those who
resist it."
The attack on Mr. Kamhi
was the third time in less
than a year that Jews or
Jewish institutions were the
target of terrorists in
Turkey.
Last March 7, terrorists
booby-trapped a car driven
by the security chief at the
Israeli Embassy in Ankara,
killing him and badly woun-
ding three Turkish
bystanders. The blast oc-
curred two days after Israel
and Turkey established full
diplomatic relations.
