and daily life, as opposed to the political activ-
ism of SAFE.
"There's very much a defining line between
the two organizations," Salhi said. "I'm sure
that we will respect that."
PSA's first solo event will be a showing of
"Paradise Now," a film about two young Pal-
estinians recruited as suicide bombers, at the
Michigan Theater on Dec. 16. The group will
offer discounted tickets to the movie and host a
discussion afterward, Foty said.
"(The film) is just an excellent portrayal of
the types of dilemmas Palestinians go through
daily," she said. "Hopefully it promotes
a lot of dialogue among people who are
open-minded, even within the Jewish
community or the American mainstream
Another example of the deep-seated link
between Palestinian culture and politics can
be seen in traditional dances, which often
have themes revolving around the impor-
tance of land, Foty added. Palestinians do

because the House bill would no longer
allow for students to lock into a low rate
by consolidating their loans while they are
still in school.
"Students across the country are already
in a deep financial hole, and this bill will
make that hole deeper and could affect the
decisions of students debating whether to
attend college and assume that financial
risk," Swarthout said.
Passing of the legislation was a struggle,
particularly in the House, where the bill

they have claimed the right to land that
became part of Israel when the country was
founded in 1948.
Without a state of their own, it is
sometimes difficult for Palestinians to
maintain their cultural heritage, Salhi
"A lot of it is trying to preserve our
culture throughout one occupation to the
next," she added.
For Palestinian students, PSA will
provide a place to meet others on cam-
pus with the same cultural heritage and a
chance to participate in activities such as
the dance troupe Atfal Filisteen Dabka
and community service in low-income
Palestinian neighborhoods in the Detroit
area, Foty said.

community from other Arab groups,

'Arab' is kind of an all-encompassing
word," she said. "(But) we are not by any
means a monolithic people."

With no support from House Democrats,
the debate came down to the moderate
Republicans and their views toward the
threatened social programs.
This is the first time that a budget rec-
onciliation process has been used since
If no agreement is reached between the
two bodies of Congress, spending levels

"In any kind of an event - be
it a communicable disease or a
disaster like Katrina - we're
not well prepared" because
there are simply not enough
hospital beds, he said.
Given the high mortality
rate of the avian flu, Winfield
pointed out that an outbreak on

the lives of more than half its

Another concern is a lack of

No vaccination has yet been
concocted, although drug com-

funded by federal grants.
Yet some students think the
preparation could be an over-

a senior in LSA, said she
hadn't heard much about bird
flu, but that she recognized
"It's important to be real-
istic that this could happen.
But it's similar to (fears about)

widespread concern in the late
