LSA-SG pulls speaker's funds
By STACEY SHONK
The LSA student government yester-
clay retracted its support for an up-
coming symposium entitled, "Palestine
. Zionism and Racism," after several
4tudents and the director of the Ann Ar-
bor chapter of B'nai B'rith Hillel Foun-
ation complained that LSA-SG should
niot sponsor the event.
LSA-SG President Eric Berman said
that representatives would officially
vote today to ask the Muslim Student
Association, which is holding the sym-
Oosium, to return $100 LSA-SG granted
the group on Oct. 23. But he said

"Many Jews do not agree with the
policies of the state (of Israel) . .. Many
Jews are opposed to Zionism," he said.
"We are only trying to present an alter-
native view of the problems in
Palestine. We think this campus is an
appropriate place for this to occur."
SLOCUM SAID that no one from LSA-
SG had called his group to inform them
that the support had been retracted.
Berman said that several students
called LSA-SG yesterday to complain
after the group posted fliers Monday
which clearly stated that LSA was
sponsoring the symposium. Michael
Brooks, director of the Hillel foundation
on campus, also called to express his
dissatisfaction with LSA sponsoring the
event, Berman said.
