Native Americans gather for
17th annual A2 Pow Wow
BY NOAH FINKEL
Democratic mayoral candidate
Ray Clevenger unveiled his proposal
to provide more room for the city's
bureaucrats yesterday at the Chamber
of Commerce's "Soap Box" forum at
the Ann Arbor Inn.
The forum featured speeches from
all mayoral and city council candi-
dates competing in the April 3 city
Clevenger proposed that the city
rent some of the 360,000 square feet
of vacant office space in Ann Arbor
to lessen the burden on what many
call an overcrowded City Hall.
Ann Arbor voters rejected tax in-
creases for a City Hall renovation in
each of the last two annual city
elections, despite the city council's
pleas for added funding. In January,
the council rejected a resolution to
put a $24 million millage proposal
on the April ballot.
Incumbent Republican Mayor
Gerald Jernigan has said during the
campaign that he will pursue another
millage proposal if elected.
But Clevenger is searching for an
alternative to a tax increase.
"We've heard about overcrowding
in City Hall," he said. "But we have
360,000 square feet of vacant office
space in this city. Is there anything
wrong with the city of Ann Arbor
renting that space?"
Jernigan thinks so. He said Cle-
venger's proposal has already been
looked at by the city and has been
rejected because many believe t
cost-prohibitive given the city's
Meanwhile, Jernigan continued
his attack on Clevenger in front of
the crowd of about 100 business-
"You're not going to hear about
any new ideas from the Democrats,'
said Jernigan. "(Their campaign) is
just going to be a different spin of
what council Republicans are already
Libertarian mayoral candidate
David Damroze also made an
appearance in which he tried to fa-
miliarize the audience with the Lib-
ertarian Party principles.

A traditional Native American celebration, the Pow

sity's Native American Student Association, is the

with each other at the Coliseum, located at Hill and
Fifth. Traditional dance competitions will take place

All students and Ann Arbor residents are invited to
the Pow Wow, where they will have the chance to
learn about the Native American culture and talk to the

Rev. criticizes Christian
Zionist support of Israel
Christian Zionists have extended
unconditional support of the state of
isfael, a Presbyterian Reverend told
an audience of about 50 students and
community members at Rackham
jmphitheater last night.
i'"The lecture, titled "Anxious for
Armageddon- Probing Israel's
t pport Among American Christian
Zionists," was presented by the Rev.
bonald Wagner, the national director
of the Palestinian Human Rights
Campaign. It was sponsored by the
teneral Union of Palestinian Stu-
Christian Zionism is "a largely
Protestant Christian phenomenon,
primarily in the fundamental ele-
ments, that support the establish-
inent of a Jewish state as a fulfill-
inent of biblical prophecy," Wagner
He said Christian Zionists think
anyone who truly believes in the
Bible sees Israel and the fulfillment
of prophecy as inseparable."
Wagner, who strongly opposes
(his movement said, "In my view,
phis is heretical in terms of Christian
* octrine." Though Wagner never at-
tacked Israel's right to exist, he
criticized Christians who view Is-
rael's existence as a biblical right
Aind their use of the bible as
justification for Israeli human rights
violations against Palestinians.
Fundamentalists like Pat Robert-
son, Jim and Tammy Baker, and
Jerry Falwell are the visible
evangelicals who believe in Chris-
Sian Zionism, he said.
"There is sufficient evidence to
believe former president Reagan
himself subscribes to Christian
Zionism," said Wagner. He said on
five different occasions Reagan pub-
licly supported the views advocated
by Christian Zionists.
According to the bible, the
formation of the state of Israel is the
first step toward Armageddon, or the
end of the world.
Wagner traced the roots of Chris-
tian Zionism to Jewish apocalyptic
thought and the prophecy that the
Jews would return to form a state.
The movement later appeared in
Britain in the 16th century with the
Protestant Reformation, Wagner
The basic principles of Christian
Zionism were established in 1829,
he said, prior to Theodor Herzl's
Jewish Zionism, which was estab-
lished in 1897.
After the 1967 Arab-Israeli war,
the International Christian Embassy
was established in Jerusalem by
fundamentalists "to show support
and love for Israel." In 1985, the
ICE organized the first Christian
Zionist Congress in Basile,
Wagner attended the second
Christian ZionistdCongress in
Jerusalem last year, where he said
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir stressed the need for crushing
the Intifadah with Christian support.
