Prof. recieves insightful religious artifact

Karen King - a professor at
the Harvard Divinity School, a
constituent school of Harvard
University - recently uncov-
ered a scrap of papyrus that is
raising questions around the
world about Jesus, The Har-
vard Crimson reported Tues-
The finding has renewed
speculation on whether Jesus
was married, and brought
back into question the role of
women and married men in
modern religion.
King is planning to continue
researching the history of the
piece of parchment, and to col-
laborate with other religious
studies scholars to pursue all


possible implications or mean-
ings of the phrase.
The individual who provid-
ed King with the artifact has
chosen to remain anonymous.
The Indiana Commission
for Higher Education, a board
that oversees the state's insti-

The School of Philanthropy

will educate students who hope
to work in non-profit organiza-
tions and will be an extension
of the University's Center on
Philanthropy, a research insti-
tute that is currently part of
IU's School of Liberal Arts.
"The transformation of the
Center to a new School of Phi-

Germany investigates ex-Nazi


Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi speaks to reporters during a joint news conference in July with Tunisian President
Moncef Marzouki, unseen, at the Presidential palace in Cairo, Egypt.
Egypt's president wants to
distance country from U.S

Morsi tells NYT
that Egypt will be
more independent
CAIRO (AP) - On the eve of
his first visit to the United States
as Egypt's president, Islamist
Mohammed Morsi said he will
demonstrate more independence
from the U.S. in decision-mak-
ing than his predecessor Hosni
Mubarak and told Washington
not to expect Egypt to live by its
Morsi sent that message in
an interview with the New York
Times after a wave of violence
erupted across the Muslim world
over an amateur film produced in
the U.S. that was deemed offen-
sive to Islam and its prophet
Muhammed. The film raised
news tensions between Washing-
ton and Egypt.
Morsi criticized U.S. dealings
with the Arab world, saying it is
not possible to judge Egyptian
behavior and decision-making by
American cultural standards. He
said Washington earned ill will in
the region in the past by backing
dictators and taking"avery clear"
biased approach against the Pal-
estinians and for Israel.

"Successive American admin-
istrations essentially purchased
with American taxpayer money
the dislike,ifnotthehatred, of the
peoples of the region," he told the
paper in the interview published
late Saturday, drawing a clear dis-
tinction between the American
government and the American
people. Those administrations
"have taken a very clear biased
approach against something that
(has) very strong emotional ties to
the people of the region that is the
issue of Palestine."
He stressed that unlike his
predecessor, Mubarak, he will
behave "according to the Egyp-
tian people's choice and will,
But with an Islamist presi-
dent at the helm of the Arab
world's most populous country,
there are already differences and
changes of focus. Morsi has been
expected to distance himself
from what many Egyptians saw
as Mubarak's compliance with
Washington's agenda in the Mid-
dle East, especially because his
Muslim Brotherhood group has
been a vocal critic of U.S. policy
in the region and in the Muslim
In the interview, Morsi dis-
missed criticism that he respond-

ed too slowly when protesters
managed to scale the walls of the
heavily fortified U.S. Embassy in
Cairo on Sept. 11. The demonstra-
tors replaced the American flag
with a banner carrying the Islam-
ic declaration of faith.
While he praised President
Barack Obama for moving "deci-
sively and quickly" to support
Arab Spring uprisings against
longtime authoritarian leaders,
he said Arabs like Americans
want to live "free in their own
land, according to their customs
and values, in a fair and demo-
cratic fashion."
He has strongly criticized the
Syria regime for violently repress-
ing the uprising there, tried to
warm relations with the Palestin-
ians, and has dealt with tensions
between the Middle East and the
West over the anti-Islam film.
The Times asked Morsi if the
U.S. was an ally, to which he
replied with a laugh by saying:
"That depends on your definition
of ally."
But he quickly followed by
saying he wants a real friendship
with the U.S.
"I think what I am trying
seriously (is to) look into the
future and to see that we are real

Philadelphia man
confirms he was an
SS guard
BERLIN (AP) - Germany has
launched a war crimes investiga-
tion against an 87-year-old Phila-
delphia man it accuses of serving
as an SS guard at the Auschwitz
death camp, The Associated
Press has learned, follow-
ing years of failed U.S. Justice
Department efforts to have the
man stripped of his American
citizenship and deported.
Johann "Hans" Breyer, a
retired toolmaker, admits he was
a guard at Auschwitz during
World War II, but told the AP
he was stationed outside the
facility and had nothing to do
with the wholesale slaughter of
some 1.5 million Jews and oth-
ers behind the gates.
The special German office
that investigates Nazi war
crimes has recommended
that prosecutors charge him
with accessory to murder and
extradite him to Germany for
trial on suspicion of involve-
ment in the killing of at least
344,000 Jews at the Aus-
chwitz-Birkenau death camp
in occupied Poland.
The AP also has obtained
documents that raise doubts
about Breyer's testimony about
the timing of his departure
from Auschwitz.
Experts estimate that at
least 80 former camp guards
or others who would fall into
the same category are likely
still alive today, almost 70 years
after the end of the war.
Authorities in the Bavar-
ian town of Weiden, who have
jurisdiction, are currently try-
ing to determine if the evidence
is sufficient for prosecution.
Breyer acknowledged in an
interview in his modest row
house in northeastern Phila-
delphia that he was in the
Waffen SS at Auschwitz but
that he never served at the
part of the camp responsible
for the extermination of Jews.
He said he was aware of
what was going on inside the
death camp, but did not wit-
ness it himself. "We could

only see the outside, the gates,"
he said.
For more than a decade, the
Justice Department waged court
battles to try to have Breyer
deported. They largely revolved
around whether Breyer had lied
about his Nazi past in applying
for immigration or whether he
could have citizenship through
his American-born mother. That
legal saga ended in 2003, with a
ruling that allowed him to stay in
the United States, mainly on the
grounds that he had joined the
SS as a minor and could therefore
not be held legally responsible
for participation in it.
Breyer testified in U.S. court

that he served as a perimeter
guard at Auschwitz I, which
was largely for prisoners used
as slave laborers, though it als
had a makeshift gas chamber
used early in the war; it was also
the camp where SS doctor Josef
Mengele carried out sadistic
experiments on inmates.
But he denied ever serving in
Auschwitz II, better known as
Auschwitz-Birkenau, the death
camp area where the bulk of the
people were killed. He also said
he deserted in August, 1944 and
never returned to the camp,
though eventually rejoined his
unit fighting outside Berlin in
the final weeks of the war.
