From Sudan to Ann Arbor

When did you come to

I came to the University
of Michigan after two years

Harvard University.
What was it like to study
in Sudan before earning
your Ph.D. at Northwestern
I studied at the University
of Khartoum - Khartoum is
the capital of Sudan - which
is one of the best African Uni-
versities. I studied English in
high school and was taught in
English at the university level.
My experience in Sudan
taught me about the impor-

tance of language to tran
scend borders, but also mad

Interior secretary apologizes for
threatening reporter in Colorado


Said he would punch
journalist for wild
horse program
Colo. (AP) , U.S. Interior Sec-
retary Ken Salazar apologized
Wednesday for threatening to
punch a Colorado reporter who
asked him about problems with
the government's wild horse
program at a campaign event.
Salazar called Dave Philipps,
a reporter with The Gazette of
Colorado-Springs, to apologize
and offer him an interview, and
also sent him a letter of apol-
ogy. The apology came a day
after the newspaper posted a
story and an audio recording
of comments Salazar made at
an Election Day event in Foun-

Salazar told Philipps by
phone Wednesday that "I
want you to hear me loud and
clear," The Gazette reported. "I
shouldn't have said that."
In the audio recording from
the campaign event, Philipps is
heard asking for an on-camera
interview with Salazar, a Colo-
rado native who previously
served as a U.S. senator from
the state.
Salazar noted he was appear-
ing at the campaign event, about
80 miles south of Denver, in a
"personal capacity," and said
his office could arrange to talk
about Davis "at an appropriate

accused Philipps of setting him
up. He then posed the threat,
saying: "If you do that to me
again, I'll punch you out."

is heard telling Salazar that he
previously got no response after
tryingimultiple times to arrange
an interview through Salazar's
press secretary.
The Gazette reported that
it initially held off on posting
the audio in hopes of getting
an interview with Salazar. But

Egyptians chant slogans against latest Israel airstrikes in Gaza during aprotest in Cairo on Wednesday. Egypt has recalled its ambassador to Israel
afteran Israeli airstrike killed the military commanderof Gaza's ruling Hamas.
Egypt recalls its envoy to
Israel after Gaza offensive

Action taken in
protest of attacks in
CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's
Islamist president recalled the
country's ambassador to Israel
to protest its strikes in the Gaza
Strip on Wednesday after com-
ing under mounting domestic
criticism for not taking a strong
enough stance against Israel.
The move may signal a shift
in the way Cairo deals with
Israel following last year's
popular uprising that ush-
ered in the country's first free
presidential elections over the
summer and a wave of protests
since. Ousted President Hosni
Mubarak, who built close ties
with Egypt's neighbor, was
accused by Egyptians for refus-
ing to bend to popular pressure
for tough stands against Israel.
Ironically, his successor
President Mohammed Morsi,
who hails from the Muslim
Brotherhood, came under simi-
lar sharp criticism earlier this
week for failing to speak out
after seven Palestinians were

killed in Israeli airstrikes over
the weekend in retaliation for
rocket attacks by Gaza militants.
Secular parties and revolution-
ary groups on Monday held a
vigil denouncing Morsi and pro-
testing the Israeli airstrikes.
On Wednesday, Israel height-
ened its offensive by killing
Ahmad Jabari, the commander
of the Hamas military wing, in
one of some 20 airstrikes on the
Gaza Strip in the wake of fur-
ther militant rocket attacks. Ten
people were killed in the assault
on Gaza, two of them young chil-
This prompted a protest of.
around 200 people in down-
town Cairo on Wednesday who
demanded Morsi take a stand
against the Israeli attack.
"Morsi where is your deci-
sion," they chanted. "Our lead-
ers, enough with the silence. The
people of Gaza are dyingthere."
Late Wednesday, presi-
dential spokesman Yasser Ali
announced on state TV that
Morsi had recalled the Egyptian
The Muslim Brotherhood is a
vocal critic of Israel, and the Pal-
estinian Hamas militant group

that rules Gaza is an offshoot
of the group. Since taking office
as Egypt's first freely elected
president in late June, Morsi has
refused to meet or contact any
Israeli officials and doesn't even
mention Israel by name in official
Still, while relations have
cooled, Morsi has not brought
radical change in Egypt's policy
toward Israel. He has promised
to abide by Egypt's 1979 peace
deal with Israel and his govern-
ment has continued contacts
with Israel through its non-
Brotherhood members.
Israel and Egypt have quietly
cooperated over an Egyptian
military operation in the Sinai
Peninsula against Islamic mili-
tants who have been attacking
Egyptian forces and launch-
ing attacks into Israel. Morsi's
government also still tightly
controls Palestinian movement
through the Rafah border cross-
ing with Gaza in the Sinai. Under
Mubarak, Egypt's backing of a
blockade of Gaza imposed by
Israel after Hamas won elections
and later overran the territory
in 2007 was highly unpopular
among Egyptians.
