Other critics of the ad in academia
said the statement was "asymmetrical."
It may be, in fact it is, but that's
because the attacks on Jewish students
are asymmetrical. Routinely, black,
Muslim, Hispanic or gay students are
not vilified systematically.
Indeed, after 9-11, every political
leader from the president down
decried, in "asymmetrical" comments,
bigotry directed at Muslims.
Moreover, those attacks generally
came from individuals and not stu-
dent-sponsored organizations or other
organized efforts.
Coleman might note the ad is not

Sciatica, often referred to as a disease, is actually a
symptom of nerve pressure or irritation of the sciatic
nerve from a misaligned spinal vertebrae. The pain
intensity can range from minor to crippling. As a
specialist in nerve and spinal disorders, we can correct
the pressure on the sciatic nerve and eliminate the pain.

states clearly: "These practices (over-
all intimidation) directed at any per-
son, group or cause, will not be tol-
erated on campuses."
So let us aim some "asymmetrical"
criticism at university presidents who
do not have the courage, dignity,
virtue or self-respect to condemn
hatred when they see it.
The institutions they head are the
lesser for that lack of leadership.
There is more to an outstanding uni-
versity than the architecture of its
buildings, the quality of its academ-
ics or the national rating of the foot-
ball team.
Indeed, the soul of an institution of
higher learning lies in the values

have caused the INS to admit its
errors.
One would be wrong. "The only
indication that Mr. Hedayet could
pose a threat to others in the United
States," it defiantly announced last
week, "was his own assertion that he
was falsely accused of being a mem- •
ber of an organization that commit-
ted terrorist activities."
This cavalier attitude toward
Hedayet's possible membership in al-
Gama'a al-Islamiyya fits a pattern of
unrepentant sloppiness by the INS
that has acquired great national sig-
nificance. To begin the urgent repair
work, the INS must take three steps:

own up to its multiple errors with
regard to
Hesham Mohamed Ali Hedayet;
undertake a remedial campaign to go
through its archives and arrest or
deport all immigrants with ties to
terrorism; and hold accountable
those employees who behaved with
what appears to be criminal negli-
gence.
At a time when Americans are
watching corrupt business- executives
being hauled off in handcuffs, should
anything less await the INS staff
responsible not for swindling cus-
tomers but for allowing into the
country the murderers .of their fellow
citizens? Perhaps this will finally end
a vital institution's lax ways. ❑
