STATE
Continued from Page 1A
Israeli forces took control of the key
West Bank city of Ramallah and several
Palestinian refugee camps, in Israel's
biggest military operations in two
decades. Syria abstained in the vote.
"I think that the U.N. Security Coun-
cil calling for a Palestinian state has
been a long-awaited event and should
have happened a long time ago," Fadi
Kiblawi, political chair of ADC, said.
"The creation of a Palestinian state has
never been offered before ... (this)
could lead to future peace talks."
But Saba noted that "words are just
words. The U.N. has had several reso- A
lutions for the past decades that have -
advocated for the creation of a Pales-
tinian state as well as calling Israel to
withdraw from its illegally occupied
territories in Palestine." He said that
"until Israel is willing to accept a U.N.
peacekeeping force within its borders,
any resolution henceforth will remain
as just words."
Jewish students on campus said they
hope the resolution offers peace to
Israeli citizens as well.
Samantha Rollinger, LSA junior and
co-chair of the American Movement
for Israel, said this "must be a peace
that offers Israeli citizens calm and
comfort ... this cannot simply be a
peace that is written on a piece of
paper, filed away in U.N. books."
LSA sophomore Jessica Goldberg
agreed, stating that "some Jewish stu-
dents think the formation of a Palestin-
ian state might be the only way to.
peace."
Rollinger added that the U.N. "has
also proven itself to be Pro-Arab/Pales-
tinian and anti-Israel over the past few
decades and while many Israelis actually
concur with the U.N. on this statement,
the idea is perfectly inline with the anti-
Israel stance that the U.N. has adopted
over the past few decades," she said.
LSA sophomore Julia Shershavin
said she believed "Israel should with-
draw only in return for secure borders.
In the past, every time Israel withdrew
from any parts of the West Bank,
groups such as Hamas and Islamic
Jihad 'nly stepped up their suicide
bombings and attacks."
Diplomats said the timing of the res-
olution was important, with Vice Presi-
dent Dick Cheney in the region and
U.S. peace envoy Anthony Zinni head-
ing there today.

VIGIL a
Continued from Page 1A
Students and community members
were invited to read the names, which
came from Yad Vashem, a Holocaust
memorial museum in Israel.
"Twenty-four hours is hardly enough
to read all the names" of the 6 million
victims, said Jacqueline Wulwick, an

LSA sophomore and co-chair of the
conference, whose grandparents are
Holocaust survivors. She added that
one of the main goals of the vigil is to
help people of all backgrounds and
ages be aware of the Holocaust.
"We are trying to show that the
Holocaust was not just about the Ger- M I N
mans and the Jews. There were other
peoples persecuted besides the Jews 7:301
and other persecutors besides the Ger-
mans. Some assisted the Nazis directly
while some just turned the other direc- l
tion and ignored the victims' plea for
help," Stephanie Balentine, program
associate at Hillel, said.
"Judaism is a big part of my life and
the Holocaust has been in my mind for 4
a long time. It's a big part of my identi-
ty that it's almost a sacred observance
to come out and to read the names and
to bear witness to those who perished,"
said LSA sophomore Rachel Rose,
who stopped by on her way to lunch to
read a couple of pages of names.
Different student groups, such as S t.
Circle K, Project Serve and LSA Stu-
dent Government, volunteered to par-
ticipate in the vigil.
"We like to get active in many
aspects of campus life ... and it's
important to remember those who per-
ished from the Holocaust'LSA repre-Ma
sentative David Mats, a freshman, said
University students weren't the only
ones who participated in the reading.
Jonathan Hill, a Detroit resident who
is currently taking care of a friend in
the University Hospital, said he still

quid pro quo means that Calabria made direct or implicit
threats or promises to Johnson if she did not welcome his
advances. But, according to a written brief, the plaintiff says
ainst there is ample evidence for the quid pro quo charges.
hool "He conditioned tolerable treatment of Johnson in public

and instead rebuffed them, he humiliated her with mounting
intensity and irrationality," the brief said.
pro Another difference between hostile environment and quid
ion, pro quo is that if hostile environment charges are proven, it
must be proven that the University should be held liable. If
Id be quid pro quo charges are found to be true, the University is
and automatically held liable.
fore "I'm very confident that we are going to prove that the
y. University was liable," Massie said.

inu- tion charges in front of the jury. "We are saving the issue for
