have killed 223 people by the
time he was 17, when he con-
verted to Christianity.
University spokeswoman
Kelly Cunningham said in
written statement that the
administration acknowledged
the American-Arab Anti-Dis-
crimination Committee's con-
cerns.
"Both the (American-Arab
Anti-Discrimination Com-
mittee ) and the University
agreed on the importance of
the free expression of ideas
in an academic community,"
Cunningham said.
Anani said he cooperated
with law enforcement author-
ities in Canada to secure asy-
lum, but in an interview he
downplayed the degree to
which he participated in ter-
rorist activities.
"I was in battlefields, not
stopping people on streets like
FLU
From page 1
So far 1,152 students liv-
ing in the residence halls are
participating in the study, said
Rebecca Coulborn, the study's
recruitment coordinator.
Coulborn said she is still
hoping to reach the original
goal of 2,250 students.
"That kind of sample size
will allow for a more accurate
study and give us the confi-
dence to reject any specula-
tion of chance," she said.
Control groups will be
studied in East Quad and
Stockwell residence halls.
The two dorms have a 70 per-
cent participation rate among
residents.

they do now," he said. "Today,
when you think of a terrorist,
you think of a suicide bomber.
In my time, suicide meant
you're outnumbered and you
go out and fight and die."
Hamad questioned Anani's
claims.
"Where is the FBI? Where
is the (Immigration and Natu-
ralization Service) to strip his
citizenship, as they did with
so many others with so fewer
allegations?" he asked.
In response to the allega-
tions that Ananiis not a former
terrorist, YAF Vice President
Ryan Fantuzzi said, "(The
allegation) sounds absurd to
me. I know nothing about it.
Why would someone be mak-
ing death threats against him
if he wasn't a terrorist?"
After a speech in Wind-
sor last week, Anani reported
receiving death threats and
having his car vandalized.
"That's the story of my life.
When they will take me out,
they will take me out," he

said.
He is now an advocate
against what he calls "the
violent doctrines of Islam,"
which he says are followed by
"radical, orthodox Muslims."
When asked if those radical
clerics who advocate violence
have an incorrect interpre-
tation of Islam, Anani said,
"Unfortunately, no."
Anani cited an incident in
Ottawa during which he said
a Jewish girl stood up and
defended the Quran at one of
his speeches.
"I asked her if she had ever
read it and she said no," Anani
said. "I told her, 'I'll give you
a hundred dollars for every
peace sentence in the Quran,
and you give me five dollars
for every hate sentence. You'll
pay me a fortune'"
That's the sort of message
that students like Kamelya
Youssef, co-founder of a new
University student group
called the Arab Unity Move-
ment, oppose.

"It's not correct," she said.
"They're giving terrorism a
religion. Terrorism is a con-
cept, you can't put a face or a
.religion on it."
Youssef is part of a coali-
tion of student groups plan-
ning a walkout during the
event.
"We all agreed that this
event won't improve the cam-
pus climate with regard to
Arab and Muslim students,"
she said.
The protesters are planning
their own alternative event to
take place after the walkout.
Both sides of the issue claim
to have the same purpose - to
teach people.
"We're here to educate,"
said Keith Davies, director of
the Walid Shoebat Founda-
tion, a small Christian Zionist
organization that promotes
the three speakers and their
message.
"It's not about hate," Davies
said. "We love Muslims, we
love Hindus, we love every-

body. It's the ideology we
oppose."
The protesters and the
American-Arab Anti-Dis-
crimination Committee said
they respect the speakers'
First Amendment rights.
"The point is not to censor,"
Hamad said.
Another member of the
Arab Unity Movement, Sirene
Abou-Chakra, was also plan-
ning to walk out of the event.
"We obviously promote
freedom of speech," she said.
"But we feel that this event is
very inflammatory."
Fantuzzi said he wasn't
worried about the protesters.
"As long as everyone fol-
lows the rules, and no one vio-
lates our freedom of speech ...
we'll be fine," he said.
Hamad said he hopes people
won't listen to the speakers.
"They have nothing to say
except to spread hatred, divi-
sion, animosity and hostility
against Islam," he said. "This
is a show. They are acting."'

years.
Both candidates refused
to give more details of their
platforms until closer to the

All four candidates said
they want to lower textbook

closely with the Ann Arbor

Affirmative Action Party.
The party hasn't decided on
a vice presidential candi-
date.
It was widely expected that
Eric Li, a MAP member and
chair of the MSA Budget Prig.
orities Committee, and MSA
Rep. Kenneth Baker woul4
seek the MSA presidency as
independents, but both said
yesterday they would not run
for the position.
Li said he is pleased with
the nominations.
"We came together as a
communal voice and nomis'
nated the best," he said. "The-
candidates are maximallf
qualified."
MAP is an offshoot of the.:
once-dominant Students 4
Michigan party, which hand-
ily won the last two MSA
presidential elections. Yost
Li, Dar and Madoff are ali
former members of S4M.

Why the high interest? It's
all about the Hamiltons.
Students from the two halls
receive $40 for answering a
short survey every week. If
participants develop flu symp-
toms during the survey, they
will be tested at UHS and paid
an additional $25 if the throat
culture is positive.
Residents of Betsy Barbour,
Helen Newberry, Couzens
and Alice Lloyd will earn $100
for wearing the facemasks
around their residence halls.
Students in Bursley Hall will
earn the same for using a hand
sanitizer daily in addition to
the facemasks.
While most students
interviewed admitted that
they were simply "in it for
the cash," whether or not

they would actually wear the
masks was questionable.
LSA freshman Alex Nish, a
Bursley resident participating
in the study, said she didn't
plan to wear the mask.
"It's claustrophobic and
embarrassing," she said. "I'm
not performing surgery and I
don't have SARS."
LSAfreshmanLeslieDemers
had similar concerns but said
she would wear the mask.
"I think a lot of people, like
myselfareself-consciousabout
wearing them," Demers said.
Nish and Demers both said
that they will respond truth-
fully in their weekly surveys.
"We want them to be hon-
est so that we can capture
the information accurately,"
Coulborn said.

Researchers plan to com-
pare the results of those who
wore the masks to those who
didn'tby using statistical anal-
ysis software, Coulborn said.
"We know that they are
proven to kill bacteria, but we
hypothesize that the combi-
nation of masks and sanitiz-
ers will be effective," said
Ana Vaz, a graduate student
in the School of Public Health
and member of the M-FLU
recruitment team.
Whether or not the team
will get 1,098 more students
to participate may depend on
the encouragement of resi-
dent advisors and friends.
"My RA is involved and
convinced a lot of my friends
and me to do it together,"
Engineering freshman Chris-

topher Callahan said. "It defi-
nitely makes the experience.
more comfortable."
While many Bursley resi-
dents wore masks yesterday,
Couzens resident and LSA
sophomore Jeff Bartels found
himself alone. Despite his
solitude, he said he keeps an
upbeat attitude among a sea of
mask-less faces.
"I'm always smiling under
here," he said, while pointing
to the mask and laughing. "You
justhave tobe comfortable and
confident around people."
As of now, students are only
required to wear the masks in
the residence halls.
"That's all right," Bartels
joked upon hearing the news.
"I get an extra $25 if I actually
do catch the flu."

PFIZER
From page 1
the Michigan Department of
Labor and Economic Growth
has made a $1 million com-
mitment to assist dislocated
workers.
"We will not stop until
we've kept these workers,"
G,ranholm said.
Two sub-teams, working
together as the Community
Team, will focus on municipal
impact and quality of life in the
city. CityCouncilmember Joan
Lowenstein (D-Ward 2) and
Jim Kosteva, the University's
director of community rela-
tions,will each head one group.
The Business Attraction
Team, headed by Eastern
Michigan University's Busi-
ness Dean David Mielke, will
identify uses for excess equip-
ment, form a plan to make the
complexattractivetoprospec-
tive lessees and offer support
for start-up companies and
business accelerator services.
The team will collaborate
with the Business Develop-
ment Team, headed by the
University's Vice President

of Research Stephen Forrest
and Rich Sheridan of Menlo
Innovations, an Ann Arbor.
software firm.
The Policy and Funding
team will address legislative
issues surrounding potential
business developments. It will
be co-chaired by Rick Snyder,
Ann Arbor SPARK chairman'
and Phil Power, a former Uni
versity Regent.
The Policy Team will also
establish a network for shar-
ing information between
community leaders, business-
es and employees.
The final group is the Site
Team, headed by Ann Arbor
City Administrator Roger
Fraser. The team will tackle
the development possibilities
for Pfizer's vacated property
on Plymouth Road.
Finney said he has received
a lot of interest in the Pfizer
property, including from
alternative energy compa-
nies, pharmaceutical corpora-
tions, and biotech companies.
Although the group doesn't
have a preferred solutiot,
Finney said he would pre-
fer an innovative technology
company.

ARIES
(March 21to April 19)
Focus on family members today, espe-
cially parents. Confine real estate deals
to the earlier part of the day. You might
enjoy time alone at home.
TAURUS
(April 20to May 20)
You might talk to relatives, especially
siblings, today. You feel nurturing
toward someone, or perhaps someone
feels this way toward you.
GEMINI
(May 21 to June 20)
Financial matters concern you
today. If you're making important deals
or buying anything expensive, try
to do this in the morning or early after-
noon.
CANCER
(June 21to July 22)
The Moon is in your sign today, and
this makes you more emotional than
usual. However, it can also attract an
extra little bit of good luck your way!
(This is always good.)
LEO
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
You'll enjoy time spent alone today.
You need some privacy to pull your act
together so that you can take it on the
road. Don't push the river.
VIRGO
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
A female friend might be particularly
sympathetic and comforting to you
today. (Quite possibly, you will play this
role for someone else.) People feet gen-
tle and maternal today.
LIBRA
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
You will likely do something to get the
attention of bosses, parents and
VIPs today. Certainly, you are noticed!
This is a playful time for you - enjoy
yourself.

SCORPIO
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Try to do something different today.
You're hungry for adventure; plus you
want to learn something new. Go some-
place you've never been before.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 221t Dec. 21)
This is a good day to look at red-tape
matters connected with insurance, bills,
inheritances, taxes and estates. However,
don't make any important decisions later
in the afternoon.
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Because the Moon is opposite your
sign today, you'll have to go more than
halfway when dealing with partners and
close friends. This is no big deal. Keep
your bridges open.
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
You have an urge to take care of little
details today, because you want to
increase your efficiency and effective-
ness in everything you do. Try to do as
much as possible as early in the day as
possible. (Things go sideways by late
afternoon.)
PISCES
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
Your creative vibes are hot today.
Enjoy playful times with children or
explore the arts. Romance is also
favored.
YOU BORN TODAY You have high
ideals and are often active for a particu-
lar social cause. You want to make a dif-
ference in the world. You'll succeed in
doing this in large measure because
you're intelligent and organized. You get
things done! You're an excellent com-
municator. Work hard to build or con-
struct something this year. Your rewards
will soon follow.
