NORML
Continued from page 1
during a meeting yesterday between
Cianciola and several NORML
members, is the latest development
in a long-running conflict between
the University and the group.
The University has previously
tried - unsuccessfully - to stop
the 22-year-old tradition, in which
thousands of people pour onto the
Diag and surrounding courtyards to
rally for marijuana legalization.
Many of them get high in the pro-
cess, to the University's chagrin.
The University tried to deny

NORML permits in 1990 and 1992,
but both times a Washtenaw Circuit
judge ordered the University to grant
the permits.
This year, the .University told
NORML that in order to obtain a
permit, it must:
be a student organization regis-
tered with MSA;
pay the deficit in its student
organization account and post
$9,429 for estimated expenses; and,
take responsibility for ensuring
that no violations of University regu-
lations occur on the Diag.
Cianciola warned NORML in a
Jan. 12 letter that if it does not "use
University facilities in a manner
consistent with University regula-
tions," the group might not be able

to use University facilities in the
future.
But Brook said NORML cannot
be held accountable for everyone
who participates in the Hash Bash.
"If Charles Manson showed up
on the Diag and opened fire on peo-
ple, would NORML be held respon-
sible? How come (coach) Gary
Moeller is not held responsible when
some kid pukes at a football game?"
he said.
The campus chapter of the
American Civil Liberties Union
(ACLU) has also filed for a permit
in order to secure the Diag April 3
for the Hash Bash.
ACLU President David Schwartz
said that if the University offers any
resistance, the ACLU could respond
with a First Amendment court battle.
"If it comes to that, we feel confi-
dent that we will win," Schwartz
said.

CLINTON
Continued from page 1
Clinton's application of Biblical ref-
erences, another student argued that
the religious excerpts were
inappropriate.
"By using them, it's another way
of sticking church in the government
and church in the state and that's un-
consitutional," said LSA junior
Deana Solaiman.
Solaiman continued by saying,
"I think it accentuates how Clinton
isn't ready to accommodate other
faiths and ethnicities, but rather
Judeo-Christian society. He's ad-
dressing them because they're a very
strong lobby."
While Kline said he cannot judge
Clinton's extent of Christianity, he
said faith is not necessarily a factor
in the presidency of the United
States today.

"From a Christian perspective,
it's good to have Christian leaders,
but the real social change comes
from God through people's hearts -
not any one economic or social
plan," Kline said.
A devotee of another faith, LSA
junior Kamran Bajwa, shared
Kline's sentiments.
Bajwa, who is president of the
Islamic Circle, holds political con-
cerns in foreign policy that deals
with entities like Iraq, Israel,
Somalia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
"The main problem I have with
Clinton is one of the statements he
made calling Israel a democracy,"
Bajwa said.
Bajwa said he condemned the re-
cent Israeli removal of Palestinians
from their homes without due pro-
cess and could not understand the
"hypocritical pattern" of enforce-
ment of U.N. resolutions in Iraq and
Israel.
He explained that the United
States has not stopped Israel from
breaking resolutions to set aside land
for Palestinians, but continues to
bomb Iraq without hesitation when
Iraqi planes pass over the U.N.-des-
ignated no-fly zone.
But LSA sophomore Amy
Kurlansky said she appreciated
Clinton's loyalty to Israel, saying
that the deportees were removed for
being threats to Israel.
"If the PLO (Palestinian
Liberation Organization) or ai.y of
the other Arab countries in the re-
gion had any concern for human
rights, the PLO would have ac-
cepted the 100 to be returned.
Lebanon or Syria would have taken
the others," she said.
Bajwa added that he was con-
cerned not enough action was being
taken in Bosnia-Herzegovina, where
Serbs and Bosnians continue to clash
in a civil war. He said the Serbs
have tortured Bosnians to the extent
of Nazi death camps in World War
POLICY
Continued from page 1
only interpreted what he said, but
the public reaction to it," he stated.
"Clinton could well have started a
new Middle East policy but not
now."
Yet, Iraq is not the only global
hot spot or international issue with
which Clinton will have to contend.
Entangled ethnic strife and hatred in
the former Yugoslavia make it a re-
gion of continuing violence and for-
eign policy concern. Aside from the
problems in Russia proper, many
also point to the former Soviet
Union's arsenal of nuclear weapons
as a major concern in foreign policy
to control nuclear proliferation.
LSA senior Dennis Jackson indi-
cated that simply because the United
States is the only superpower does
not mean that the world is safe.
"Yes, we're a superpower, but
the Soviet Union has no less
weapons than before; now we're not
sure who's in control of them,
crazed leaders can go in and buy
weaponry."
Yet Jackson added that he does
not believe Clinton will have a large
impact. He said, "I am confident that
the government is large enough that
he (Clinton) cannot make enough
changes to be the demise of our
country."

II, and questioned why the United
States bombed Iraq when the im-
mediate humanitarian concern is in
Bosnia-Herzegovina.
"There's already so much resent-
ment for the lack of action, that any
action would be looked upon as too
late," he said.
LSA senior Kulneet Dang, who
is a Sikh, also said he felt concerned
about Clinton's inaction, though for
different reasons.
Dang, who would have appreci-
ated an official statement regarding
the December destruction of a 430
year-old Indian mosque thought to
have been built on top of the birth-
place of a Hindu god, said he ex-
pects to soon hear a statement re-
garding the status of Hindus,
Muslims and Sikhs in India.
He added that he feels Clinton
would be receptive to the views of
Sikhs.
On domestic issues, Bajwa,
Dang, Kline and Kurlansky each
said government has become secu-
larized, preventing any policies -
even on issues such as abortion -
from being infringements on reli-
gious beliefs.
"We have a choice not to have an
abortion. It does not impose any-
thing on us," Bajwa said.
But Solaiman begged to differ.
"As a Muslim, there is no way I can
justify pro-choice," she said. She
said she agreed with abortion in the
case of rape or threat of a mother's
life, but could not condone it as a
form of birth control.
"The woman decided to have sex
with him. They have no choice but
to take responsibility for their ac-
tions," Solaiman said.
Kline said disagreement on the
issue of abortion occurs even within
most religious groups.
"The Bible does not speak
clearly, 'Thou shall not have abor-
tions.' There's room for disagree-
ment," he said.
Dani Reiter, a University gradu-
ate student in political science, sus-
pects that immediate troubles will be
the type of pressing problems that
Clinton will tackle.
"Clinton doesn't have a grand
policy vision. In foreign affairs,0
Clinton will be putting out fires
rather than anticipating them," he
said.
Even without a "vision," foreign
policy in the 1990s is going to in-
clude much more than Cold-War era
issues.
Collier said he sees world health
issues, specifically abortion, playing
an increased role in the international *
arena. Collier indicated a need for
Clinton to challenge America's
political opponents of abortion -
the Republican Right and the Roman
Catholic Church.
"Clinton has got to take on the
American opponents of abortion. For
not being able to assist countries in
birth control - we are looking at an
international health problem which
immediately comes back to abor-@
tion," he said. "And while it's a for-
eign policy issue, it's a re-election
issue, yet Clinton may well take it
on."
The consensus on foreign policy
seems to be post-Cold War confu-
sion. Not quite knowing where to go
or how to act, scholars and politi-
cians appear to be floundering in un-
known waters.
