Murfin Avenue around 12:30 p.m.

failed a lot in the first three to four
years of our work together, but we
always banded together and tried
again," she said.
Kotov said the development is
ical research, but it will also help to
revitalize the state's economy.
"We are trying to re-energize
the biotechnology sector of econo-
my in Michigan and to bring new
ideas to the industry in the diffi-
cult economic times," he said.
"The package should include
funding to ready-to-go infrastruc-

Additionally, Levin wrote that
he hopes the package will provide
"direct assistance to states so that

Israelis have died in the conflict.
"Israel asa state will continue
to exist forever," Parritz said, to
a chorus of cheers and applause
from the crowd. "Any person
people or governmentwho wish-

surely do so at their own peril."
Following Parritz's speech,
students led the crowd in the
song "Am Yisrael Chai," or "The
Nation of Israel Lives."
The rally concluded with the
crowd singing the Israeli nation-
al anthem. LSA freshman Alex
Kaminski said he was "touched"
by the rally.
"Israel has been at the cen-
ter of a lot of negative press and
false accusations," he said. "It
drives me up the wall."
Kaminsky said that he was
pleased with the turnout at the
rally, despite the below-zero
"It really shows how passion-
