Protesters raly for stop
to Israeli aggression

By Christopher Johnson
Daily Staff Reporter

Citing a recent surge in violence
between the Israelis and the Palestini-
ans, Students Allied for Freedom and
Equality criticized the actions of the
Israeli defense forces at a rally in
front of the Ann Arbor Federal Build-
ing Friday.
About 70 students and local resi-
dents paraded signs urging justice and
hollered slogans of disapproval as they
marched to the Diag.'
LSA junior Fadi Kiblawi, a SAFE
member and an organizer of the rally,
said that since the beginning of March,
Israeli defense troops have killed more
than 200 Palestinians in addition to
other serious acts of aggression.
Kiblawi said Israeli troops have tat-
tooed identification numbers on the
foreheads and the arms of those living
in areas occupied by Israel in order to
monitor possible suicide bombers.
Kiblawi urged sympathizers to take
action against the violence.
"We want to end the bloodshed," he
said. "The only way that can happen
is if the root of violence is taken
away. And the root of violence is the
Israeli occupation in the West Bank
and Gaza"
Alia Al-Shaikh, an Ann Arbor resi-
dent who participated in the rally,

able to bring family and friends to
football games next season, provided
they take the appropriate steps in
advance. Students can transfer tick-
ets from student to non-student sta-
tus at the ticket office prior to the
game. Students wishing to transfer
tickets will need to pay the differ-
ence - approximately $26 -
between a student and non-student
Bodnar was not sure what the pre-
cise method for transferring tickets
will be. But the ticket office will
inform students in August as to the
exact procedure of validation for
Despite decreased ticket sales last
year, the Athletic Department has
chosen not to put a limit on the num-
ber of student tickets to be sold this
season. Last season 19,600 students
requested tickets and the department
considered limiting student tickets
this year. But instead it decided to
adopt the ID and transfer policy.
"We had planned for Fall 2002 to
allocate 20,000 tickets for students,"
Athletic Director Bill Martin said.
"But as we began to discuss this
plan with U of M student leaders,
many of them voiced concerns that
some students might be shut out of
purchasing season tickets. They
urged us to accommodate all student
ticket requests for this season and
they supported the notion of requir-
ing student identification. Thus, we
are not going to place a cap of
20,000 on the number of student
tickets available, but establish this
ID policy instead."

"Our position is only favored by an
open, honest debate. I don't thii* that is
what Horning is interested in. I think he
is interested in a kind of sabotage and
personal grandization."
Massie said she thinks the remarks by
Horning will not have an affect on the
outcome of the trial, and also that the
timing of the release of the letter to the
press, which was written on Feb. 16 and
postmarked March 13, is an attempt to
alter the court's decision.
While these comments by Horning
came at a time when the University's
admission policies are being reviewed in
court, Wayne State University Law Prof.
Robert Sedler said he does not believe it
will affect the courts decision in the
cases of Bollinger v. Gratz and Bollinger
v. Grutter.
"The policy of the U-M Board of
Regents is to support affirmative action,.
Unless they change the policy the case is
not mute. The fact that one regent may
be having doubt about the policy doesn't
affect anything," Sedler said. "The only
thing the court cares about is if this is
still U of M's policy."
Two days after the original letter was
sent, Horning wrote an apology to
White and admitted that he misunder-
stood her comments made with regard
to the chair and vice-chair position of
the Board of Regents and retracted
everything he said in the letter.
"I am sorry for the comments that I
made to you in error and I retract all that
was said in my letter," Horning wrote in
his apology. The letter is not the first
time Horning has shown opposition to
minority issues. In the past he has pub-
licly opposed a University English
course titled "How to be Gay," taught

"There seems to be
no explanation....
It is an aberration
that Dan responded
that way."
- Kathy White
Regent (D-Ann Arbor)
by English Prof. David Halperin.
"I'm offended," Horning said in Sept.
2000 after he attend one of the class lec-
tures. "There's no excuse for having this
course. I'm bitterly disappointed in the
University of Michigan."
Horning announced last week that he
would not be running for re-election
because of personal reasons.
White said the letter shocked her and
that it was completely unprecedented in
conjunction with Homing's past actions.
"I didn't make those comments and it
is really unfortunate that this situation
happened. There seems to be no expla-
nation for what was written in the letter.
It is an aberration that Dan responded
that way," White said. "I've never heard
him speak against affirmative action....
This is really a break from reality."
Interim University President B.
Joseph White, who also received both of
Homing's letters, said he is still confi-
dent in the board's dedication to affirma-
tive action.
"We have had complete and unani-
mous support from the Board of
Regents for our position on affirmative
action and our defense in the affirmative
action lawsuits and that has been unwa-
vering from the beginning including in
the last month," White said.

En route to the Diag, protesters supporting Palestinians held up signs promoting a
peaceful resolve in the Middle East.

agreed with Kiblawi's request for peace
and cited additional incidents of cruelty.
She said she has heard stories of Israeli
forces break the limbs and joints of
Palestinian children so they can never
hold a gun and incarcerations of young
Palestinian males without warrant.
"The Palestinians are suffering a
great deal," she said. "The Jewish peo-
ple have to come out, with the Pales-
tinians, against the government."
Participants said they protested to

inform the public and the government
of the injustice and to show their sup-
port for Palestine.
"The Palestinians need to know that
people in other nations are supporting
them by standing out here in the cold,
by showing that we are aware of what's
going on," Al-Shaikh said.
LSA junior Sarah Bedy said, "If we
make the citizens more aware, hopeful-
ly government officials will become
more aware as well."

GEO members agreed the threat of
an impending strike put pressure on
the University to settle.
"Power yields nothing that hasn't
been taken away from it. And we took
lots," Nooruddin said.
"Our ability to get a contract is not
the result of the benevolence of the
University. It's really based on the
amount of power that we have," de
Leon said.
The new contract agreement is a
personal victory, he said.
"I started this year out wondering
whether or not I should be president
for a second term," de Leon said. "I
was afraid that we would fail under
my watch, and in the end I decided to
take the principle stand and that I was
gding to lead the union come hell or
high water. I am ecstatic that I made
that difficult choice."
