News Digest:

Vote On Monday

Oakland County — Voters will go to
the polls on Monday, June 14, to vote
for local school board candidates and
millages, depending on the communi-
ty in which they live. The ballot also
includes a county-wide race to elect
three trustees to the Oakland
Community College Board.
With five campuses and a budget of
$136.3 million, "much of it your tax
dollars and mine, OCC is an impor-
tant part of Oakland County's educa-
tion system," said Jeanne Towar, an
OCC trustee from 1996 to 2002 and
a former board chair.
The school is the largest community
college in Michigan and 14th largest
in the country. The 70,000 students it
serves in the course of a year average
29 years of age; 25 percent receive
financial aid of some kind. About 50
percent will transfer to a four-year
university.
OCC has one of the lowest tuition
rates in the state, about a third of the
cost of a university. "OCC makes it
possible for many Oakland County
residents to afford an education that
will change their life in the most posi-
tive way," Towar said.
P011s are open on Monday from 7
a.m. to 8 p.m. Check with your local
school board offices to fnd out where
to vote.

Pearl's Father Honored

New York/JTA — The father of slain
journalist Daniel Pearl said he is work-
ing to "turn tragedy into life-affirm-
ing" experiences.
Judea Pearl made the comment in
New York as he was honored by the

More Israel and national news at www.jewish.com

American Jewish World Service. Along
with his wife, Ruth, Judea Pearl has
established the Daniel Pearl
Foundation in honor of his son, who
proclaimed his Jewishness shortly
before his throat was slit by Islamic
terrorists in Pakistan in January 2002.
The foundation promotes cross-cul-
tural understanding through journal-
ism and music programs. Like their
son, the Pearls are focused on "chang-
ing the world and healing the gross
fissures in the world," said the group's
president, Ruth Messinger. Actress
Kathleen Turner also was honored.

`Passion' Riles

New York/JTA — The Anti
Defamation League is upset over
Vatican plans to beatify a nun whose
visions inspired Mel Gibson's The
Passion.
The beatification — the last step
before sainthood — of Anne
Catherine Emmerich could harm
interfaith relations, the ADL said in a
statement.

Jewish Student Stabbed

Paris/JTA — A yeshivah student was
seriously injured in a knife attack near
Paris.
Yisrael Yiftah, 17, was stabbed in
the chest outside the Mekor Yisrael
Yeshiva by an assailant described by
witnesses as a man of North African
origin. Before losing consciousness,
Yiftah also told police that the man
had shouted Allah akbar, or "God is
great," before stabbing him. The
attacker then attempted to strike other
students at the yeshivah with a screw-
driver before fleeing.

Yiftah's condition was described by
a hospital spokesman as serious. A
man was arrested in connection with
the attack. Police say he is also linked
to at least two other assaults on men
of Arab and Haitian origin.

Israel Develops Missile

Washington/JTA — Officials
in Washington confirmed a report to
appear in Jane's Defense Weekly next
week that Israel modified its Delilah
air-to-surface missile to achieve targets
200 miles away when launched from
the ground.
Israel plans to expand the
range of the missile. Such a missile
may prove a deterrent to missiles
reportedly developed by Iran.

irlIE ISSUE

Several Washington insiders recently
have charged that the Bush adminis-
tration's pro-Israel policy is hurting
America's broader goals in the Arab
Middle East. A close look at the
,
regimes in the region proves the sill'-
lowness of this hypothesis.

BEHIND TuE ISSUE

The despots running each Arab
country deny their countrymen
democracy, give only lip service to
social, political and economic
reforms, and maintain educational
systems that teach no tolerance or
modernity. They are not unified on
regional issues, save one — the use of
Israel as a scapegoat for their domes-
tic problems.
