Israeli Diversity

Ethiopian, American, Brit visit EMU.

E

astern Michigan University
Hillel hosted three Israeli
university students who
spoke about their experiences living
in Israel at an Oct. 11 forum co-spon-
sored by the EMU Political Science
Department and Pi Sigma Alpha.
The delegation was chosen to
demonstrate the diversity in Israeli
society by Israel at Heart, a nonprofit
organization that sponsors student
delegations, Israeli basketball teams
and Israeli musicians who visit
college campuses across North
America, Europe, South America and
Australia.
Daniel Desta described her family's
escape from Ethiopia on foot in
Operation Moses and her experi-
ence in the Israeli Defense Forces
at a checkpoint for Palestinians to
enter Israel. Jeremy Hulsh grew up in
Chicago; he spoke about his experi-
ence living in Israel, making aliyah in
2002, and serving in the IDF on the
front lines of the recent action against
Hezbollah on the northern border.
Daniel Greenberg, born in Great
Britain, made aliyah as a baby. He
spoke about the variety of Israeli opin-
ions about the recent conflict as well
as the broader situation in the Middle
East.
While speaking to an EMU "War
and Peace in the Nuclear Age" class
and other political science students,
the delegation fielded questions cov-
ering such topics as the situation in
Lebanon and the damage inflicted
on both sides, the perception of the
United States by the average Israeli,
media coverage of Israel, the effects
of extremism and the possibility for

future peace.
Hillel hosted a kosher luncheon fol-
lowing the presentation for Pi Sigma
Alpha honors students and faculty,
then partnered with the Hebrew Day
School of Ann Arbor, where the del-
egation visited the school's Hebrew
immersion classes.
EMU Hillel Director Clara Silver
believes the Israel at Heart students
brought positive messages about Israel
and Israelis to campus.

Answering
Israel's Critics

The Charge:

At this month's general conference
of the International Atomic Energy
Agency, a mostly Arab-Muslim bloc
of states (angered by what they
perceived as Western inaction dur-
ing Israel's conflict with Hezbollah)
pushed for a resolution to brand
Israel's suspected nuclear weapons
a "threat" to regional peace and
stability.

The Answer:

While Israel does not admit to hav-
ing nuclear weapons, its nuclear
program reportedly began in the
1950s after two wars launched by
the Arabs to annihilate it. Israel is
the refuge of the Jewish people, the
only Jewish nation and protection
against another Jewish Holocaust. If
Israel has nuclear weapons, they are
meant not as a threat, but as a deter-
rent to Israel's destruction.
