lot of people say 'Saddam Hussein has
been in power for 20 years; why haven't
the people revolted?' It is because there
is a fear in people for their families," he
While A-Katib said there is no doubt
that Hussein's regime needs to be
replaced, he questions whether war is the
best option. "In all the debate, I've never
heard 'What's best for the Iraqi people?"'
Raoof shares similar doubts.
"We want the United States to take
action, but we have emotional ties to
the people that live there," Raoof said.
"I prefer they do things without mili-
tary action."
Al-Katib also said he feels that haste
would be a grave error.
"I think that one of the most danger-
ous actions is rushing into war,"Al-Katib
said. "It would be ridiculous to go in
before the inspectors or gaining support
from the U.N. and international commu-
nity. Besides, it would support the inter-
national opinion of the U.S. as a bully."
While Raoof and Al-Katib have con-
cern for the safety of their loved ones
and enmity for Hussein's regime, neither
is sure of how to resolve the problem.
"There definitely needs to be a
change from the outside," Raoof said.
"It's been like this for a long time.
Someone needs to do something soon."
"My support for the war would be
dtermined by the U.S's motivations....
The main and only objective should be
to get rid of Saddam Hussein," Al-Katib
said. "I would want a government in
which the people are in control of what
they want, not what is forced upon them
- either by a foreign country or by a
power or person within the country."
Raoof said in spite of all the protest
and confusion, she still trusts the U.S.
government. "I do trust Bush," Raoof
said. "That's why we live here, because
we believe in democracy. That's why we
don't live in Arabic countries."

analysis of the situation of women scien-
tists on campus.
The study's primary design sur-
veyed women scientists against male
scientists and female social scientists
from 10 colleges at the University,
including the College of Literature,
Science, and the Arts, the Medical
School, the School of Engineering
and the Nursing School.
More than 300 faculty responded,
with only 30 percent being male.
Around 50 percent of the females con-
tacted replied.
Stewart said the number of males
who responded was disappointing, but
that the overall number of faculty con-
tributing was about normal for this
type of survey.
"With very few exceptions, where the
groups differ is within the climate that is
the context for their work," Stewart
added. "Otherwise, they share similar
values and professional goals."
Stewart said the study's results sug-
gest that equality and leadership oppor-
tunities for women scientists are in need
of great improvement.
Committee member Pamela Ray-
mond, who also serves as senior coun-
selor to the provost, said that achieving a

The e-mail to faculty members
invited them to "speak out against
Israel" at the second National Stu-
dent Conference on the Palestine
Solidarity Movement next month.
The e-mails sent to students and
faculty members thanked the Uni-
versity's Information and Technolo-
gy Central Services for "allowing"
SAFE access to all- faculty e-mail
addresses, as well as the Regents
and President Mary Sue Coleman
for their support.
"Most alarming, the e-mail also
spews much anti-Israel and anti-Semitic
rhetoric that neither I, nor SAFE, has
ever endorsed,"Kiblawi added.
The e-mail encouraged faculty to
challenge what it referred to as the
"Israeli Apartheid."
"The time has come, and enough
is enough," the e-mail stated. "For
almost 55 years now, Jews in Pales-
tine have systematically destroyed
the lives of the indigenous Pales-
tinians who had lived there for hun-
dreds of years. It is time for us to
speak out and be heard, and you can
be a part of this revolution!"
Yesterday, an e-mail from Univer-
sity President Mary Sue Coleman to
the University community
addressed the conference SAFE

will be hosting as well as the inci-
dent. "The e-mail contained lan-
guage that was deeply offensive and
hurtful to me and to many others in
our community, and I condemn it,"
Coleman said in her e-mail. "This
country's history teaches us that
ugly speech is best neutralized with
other voices and more speech. I ask
for your collective support in main-
taining civil and respectful campus
dialogue on important issues."
She also requested support from
the community in campus discus-
sions about sensitive topics.
Kiblawi said he discovered the
incident after checking e-mail on
the second floor of the Shapiro
Undergraduate Library at the engi-
neering computer lab, where he
went to do homework. Upon log-
ging into his e-mail, he said he
noticed he had three return-to-
sender e-mails.
"I deleted all three, not making
much note of them. Immediately
after that, eight more return-to-
sender and out-of-office e-mails
popped up. I opened one of them
and saw the forged email, titled:
'Invitation to upcoming confer-
ence,"' Kiblawi said. He then called
ITCS and left a message informing
them his e-mail had been spoofed
and filed a report with the Depart-
ment of Public Safety and proceeded

to talk with the ITCS user advocate.
"The sender of the message
developed the list of recipients in
some fashion. We do not know
how," said user advocate spokes-
woman Kitty Bridges. "E-mail
addresses are on departmental web
pages, on personal web pages and
in the University online directory,
and it appears that the sender devel-
oped the list of names from these
various sources.
"No assistance was provided to
the sender by ITCS or any others
named in the e-mail. The person
whose name was on the e-mail has
said he is not responsible for the e-
mail," Bridges said.
Bridges added that there was no
indication Kiblawi's e-mail account
was used directly or broken into.
"It is likelier that the e-mail was
'spoofed.' ... A message group
which he owns was used as the
sender," she said. "The U-M user
advocate is investigating." ,
Since the spoof was sent, Kiblawi
said he has received dozens of e-
mails from outraged faculty and
staff members who were under the
impression that he wrote the origi-
nal message.
Kiblawi said he was told that the e-
mail was sent from a user of the Veri-
zon internet service, which would not
implicate him in the crime.

"At this step, initiatives we must take
include increasing women recruitment
within five years," Raymond said.
She added that research shows differ-
ential treatment of women in science by
both men and women, and the fewer
women in the profession, the greater the
The pipeline theory, explained
Stewart, claims that with education
being equal between men and women,
an equal proportion of women "in the
pipe" to begin with will result in an
equal proportion in high academic
But as the current situation exhibits,
Stewart said the pipeline theory does
not explain "then leak" of women in sci-
entific fields as they ascend to the col-
legiate level.
University President Mary Sue Cole-
man, who researched for 19 years at the
University of Kentucky, also spoke at
the lecture and stressed the significance
of post-graduate experiences.
"What we need to move forward is to
change the graduate student experience,"
Coleman said.
Supporting Coleman's concern, NSF
data shows the greatest drop-off of
women working in science and engi-
neering occurs during graduate school.
