people. The most tragic of these
events, a bus bombing in Tel Aviv,
left 22 dead and 40 injured.
"My hope here on campus and in
the world is for people to speak out
against terrorists, they are the en-
emies of peace, which Israel and her
neighbors are striving for," said LSA
sophomore Josh Ruebener. "We or-
ganized the vigil because it is impor-
tant for people to speak out when
people see something unjust in the
world. If awareness is raised because
of this, then we have succeeded."
Israel's consul for press and infor-
mation, Chaim Shacham, spoke to the
group. In his speech, he addressed the
peace treaty signed by Israel and Jor-
dan yesterday and spoke out against
the recent violence that has threat-
ened the peace process.
"The historical and geo-political
significance of the treaty cannot be
overstated," he said.

Schacham also spoke of the need
to isolate terrorists from the rest of the
world community and to continue the
work for peace. "The Middle East is
at a crossroads between Arab-Israeli
peace and constant Jihad. The situa-
tion in Israel today is as inspiring as it
is tragic. It encapsulates the reality of
the Middle East."
At the conclusion of the speech,
the names of the 26 victims were read
and prayers were said for them.
Students who attended said they
wanted to show support for Israel and
efforts for peace in the region.
"I came tonight because it is im-
portant to show I support Israel and to
show our solidarity," said LSA first-
year student Ronit Reger.
LSA first-year student Amy
Wagner said, "I'm here to say I have
a voice and I want it to be heard."
The vigil was sponsored by the
American Movement for Israel,
United Jewish Appeal and the Israel

not only our nations that are shaking
hands in peace here in the Arava," the
general-turned-statesman said, ad-
dressing Hussein. "You and I, your
majesty, are making peace here, our
own peace, the peace of soldiers and
the peace of friends."
Although the treaty dealt primarily
with bilateral relations, the accord ef-
fectively shifted the balance of power
across the Middle East, making iteasier
for other Arab states to reach the peace
with Israel that many desire, making it
harder for Syria to exercise a veto over
such agreements and tougher for the
Palestine Liberation Organization to
maintain its position as Israel's princi-
pal Arab partner.
"This is peace with dignity," Hussein
said, defying those at home and else-
where in the Arab world who criticize
him for signing a separate peace with
Israel. "This is peace with commit-
ment. This is our gift to our peoples and
the generations to come."
Beneath a hot desert sun with a wind
whipping pages of the treaty and its
many accompanying maps, Rabin
signed the accord with Prime Minister
Abdul-Salam al-Majali of Jordan to the
applause of 5,000 guests from their two
nations and 20 other countries.

tably, lead to conflict. That argument
has been paralleled within the United
States and Europe, where prominent
writers on international affairs have
developed a now-fashionable theory
that an unavoidable clash between
Islam and the West will replace the
long fight between capitalism and
communism as the central conflict of
the coming century.
On both sides, those predictions
draw on a history of conflict and sus-
picion that dates back a millennium
- to the ages of the Crusaders and the
wars between the armies of Islam and
Christendom - and that has been
deepened by the legacy of Western
colonialism in the region.
The White House national security
adviser, Anthony Lake, has denounced@
those arguments in the past and has
argued that the United States, with its
diversity of cultures, should be able to
act as a bridge between the differing

Clinton pointed out that "every day in
our own land, millions of our citizens
answer the Muslim call to prayer."
Their values "are in harmony with the
best of America's ideals," he declared.

Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, President Clinton and King Hussein of
Jordan stand against a backdrop of "peace ballons" after the treaty signing.

Joyce Wright said Speakout not only
gives survivors a chance to share their
stories and learn from others, but it
allows the community to learn from
their experiences as well.
"As you learn about what that sur-
vivor goes through and who the per-

blaming," she said.
