DIVESTMENT
Continued from Page 1A
have become breeding grounds for
anti-Semites and terrorist sympa-
thizers," Neuman said. "Pro-Pales-
tinian groups are doing everything
they can to weaken Israel - includ-
ing using lies and deception to
incite anti-Semitic violence." Words
like "Apartheid" and "oppression"
are incorrect in describing Palestini-
ans' lives in Israel, he added.
These words are part of anti-Israel
rhetoric to confuse people about the
situation, Hillel governing board
chairman Eric Bukstein said.
"The anti-Israel rhetoric uses
cheap tactics of half truth and lies.
We have to see what's really going
on - which is a war on terrorism.
The discourse needs to be about
peace, democracy and terrorism in
the region and how we defend
Israel. Those are the issues," Buk-
stein. said. "Anti-Israel supporters
spew forth rhetoric supporting ter-
rorism. This is scary on many levels.
They're spewing forth a lot of hate
and they're trying to disguise it as
part of the constructive discourse."
There are more effective ways to
solve the problems in the Middle
East without creating an economic
crisis, Bukstein said.
"A lot of ... Israel's detractors
want a Palestinian state and another
Palestinian state. There's one clear
obvious solution to this conflict and
that's peaceful coexistence with two
people in two states living next to

each other." Bukstein said.
"Israel has made incredible
strides to make peace with the
Palestinians and they have been met
with violence and an ongoing com-
mitment to terror," Bukstein said.
"Israel is willing to make tremen-
dous sacrifices to have another
democracy in the Middle East....
Israelis are quite literally dying to
have peace with the Palestinians.
Until we're able to discuss peace,
democracy and coexistence, there's
not going to be any progress," he
added.
Neuman said the idea of divest-
ment becoming a large-scale move-
ment is highly unlikely.
"I don't believe divestment is
going to happen because it is essen-
tially a red herring - intended to
distract people from the real prob-
lem - which is Palestinian terror-
ism and the Islamic extremism and
Arab media incitement which are its
root causes," Neuman said.
Bukstein also said he thought the
movement would not be effective
based on what he feels are its true
motives -- to hurt the nation of
Israel in as many ways as it can.
"I think it's not a campaign of
peace and justice," Bukstein said.
"It's a campaign trying to delegit-
imize Israel. At its base are princi-
ples that call for the destruction of
Israel."j
"Once this war stops, Israel will
jump to negotiate peace, as it has
every time that this has occurred in
the past," Roth said.
REGENT

Fischer Newman added the Life Sci-
ences Initiative, which she said Universi-
ty President Mary Sue Coleman will
continue to build up, is "truly one of the
most important things we have done here
at the University since I have been here"
In addition to enhancing research at
the University, she said the LSI is impor-
tant for the state because it will form sci-
entific and technological partnerships.
Before becoming a regent at the Uni-
versity of Michigan, Fischer Newman
served on Oakland University's board of
governors.
Fischer Newman is one of 10 candi-
dates vying for two positions on the Uni-
versity Board of Regents on the Nov. 5
statewide general election ballot. The
other candidates are Democrat Ismael
Ahmed of Dearborn, director of the Arab
Community Center for Economic and
Social Services; GOP state Rep. Andrew
Richner of Grosse Point Park, and Greg
Stephens, a Democrat from Saline and a
business manager and financial secretary
of the International Brotherhood of Elec-
trical Workers Local 252. Six third-party
candidates are running.

ADJUSTING
Continued from Page 1A
learning environment for them," he
said. Altamirano said some of the
biggest changes international students
need to adjust to could be as simple as
cafeteria food. "The food is edible but so
bland," said Divya Parambi, an Engi-
neering sophomore from India.
Even eating outside the cafeteria
requires adjustments. "Even the Indian
food here is too mellow," Parambi said.
Raphaelle Granger, a French Busi-
ness student, switched to frequent
chocolate bars from a diet of mostly
yogurt, fruits and vegetables. She said it
is simply too expensive here to eat the
kind of foods she is accustomed to.
Parambi said she gets around this by
sneaking Paratha, a flat round bread,
among other native foods, into the coun-
try past customs officials.
International students encounter dif-

ferences in the classroom as well. They
find themselves expected to be active
participants where before they often
deferred to the authority of the professor.
Granger said she used to spend 30 to
40 hours a week in lecture "listening
rigidly," not asking questions or dis-
cussing the material. "In France you
mainly repeat theories and ideas, here
they push you a little bit to try to get you
to think outside of the box," she said.
The idea of a discussion section and
taking a more active role in the learning
process is a completely new concept and
one to which it takes time to adjust.
"People talk very loud here. You have
to scream to be heard," Granger said.
More informal settings are new and
take some getting used to. Parambi said
she would not have been caught calling
a teacher by their first name for any-
thing, and even now when e-mailing
professors she still addresses them for-
mally.
