Appreciating Polish culture

Through a variety of
social and cultural events,
the University's Polish Club
- known in Polish as Klub
Polski - seeks to promote
Polish culture and foster a
close-knit community for its
Throughout the year, the
organization hosts a variety
of events such as mixers and
bonfires, which are open to
all students. Though many of
the club's roughly 50 mem-
bers are of Polish descent, the
club is not limited to Poles.
LSA senior Misia Szew-
czyk, the Polish Club social
chair, said her favorite part
of the Polish Club is its close-

knit community and ties to
Polish culture. Members of
the Polish club frequently
gather at houses or residence
halls to cook traditional Pol-
ish dishes such as Pierogi and
"I like the sense of com-
munity and the feeling of
home away from home," Sze-
wczyk said. "Alot of people in
this club grew up with a Pol-
ish influence in their house-
hold and the club fosters that.
When you're feeling stressed
out, it's nice to have food or
songs that reminds you of
The group also partici-
pates in an annual soccer

EuroCup, which serves as an
opportunity for members
of other European clubs on
campus to compete. This
year, competitors included
members of the Russian Club,
the German Club, the Turk-
ish Student Association.
The Polish Club also
hosts speakers from Poland
who are invited annually by
the Center for Russian and
Eastern European studies to
come speak at the University.
The speakers discuss current
international topics like the
European debt crisis.

Israeli missile strikes kill 3
Palestinian TV journalists

Reporters killed in
targeted airstrike of
news van
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP)
- Israeli airstrikes. killed three
Palestinian journalists in their
cars on Tuesday, a Gaza health
official and the head of the
Hamas-run Al Aqsa TV said.
Israel acknowledged targeting
the men, claiming they had ties
to militants.
Later Tuesday, an Israeli air-
strike hit a building that houses
the office of the French news
agency Agence France Presse.
An agency photojournalist who
was in the office at the time said
the target appeared to be two
floors above him. No one was
injured and the agency office
was not damaged.
The strikes came on the sev-
enth day of Israel's offensive
against Gaza's Hamas rulers.

A number of journalists have
been killed over the years while
covering fighting between the
Jewish state and the Palestinian
militant group, but not in target-
ed strikes that Israel acknowl-
Two of those killed were
cameramen working for Al Aqsa
TV, the centerpiece of a grow-
ing Hamas media empire, said
station head Mohammed Tho-
urayh. The two were driving
in a car with press markings
in Gaza City on Tuesday after-
noon, shortly after wrapping up
an assignment at the city's Shifa
Hospital, Thouraya added.
The station said the car was
hit by a missile and broadcast
the aftermath, with the vehicle
consumed by flames. Thoura-
ya said the bodies of the two,
Mohammed al-Koumi and Hus-
sam Salam, were badly burned.
Later Tuesday, another Israe-
li missile killed an employee for
Al Quds Educational Radio, a
private station, said Ashraf al-


Kidra, a Gaza health official.
Mohammed Abu Eisha died
when his car was hit in the cen-
tral Gaza town of Deir el-Balah,
al-Kidra said.
Lt. Col. Avital Leibovich, an
Israeli military spokeswoman,
said a preliminary investigation
showed all three were Hamas
operatives, but would not elabo-
Israel has struck a wide range
of Hamas-linked targets during
its offensive, including rocket
launching sites and the homes of
suspected activists, killing more
than 120 people.
Asked whether Israel had
widened its range of targets to
include journalists working for
media run by Hamas or other
militant groups, Leibovich said:
"The targets are people who
have relevance to terror activ-
Thouraya denied that the two
employees killed Tuesday were
linked to violence.
"Our crew were fighters, but
they were not fighting with
weapons," he said. "They were
fighting with their cameras.
They were on the battlefield to
defend the people by filming
the awful crimes (of the Israeli
offensive) and broadcasting
them to the world."
Mahmoud al-Hams, the AFP
photographer, said the build-
ing housing the French news
agency shook and he could smell
fire after it was -hit. He said the
building, which is part of a com-
mercial mall, has an office of a
Hamas-related media outlet for
women, which was hit in the
strike. Families who had taken
refuge in the building from air-
strikes in northern Gaza fled
after the attack.
Over the weekend, an Israe-
li missile struck an Al Aqsa
office on the top floor of a
Gaza City high-rise also being
used by other local and for-
eign news outlets. A second
strike hit the Lebanon-based
Al Quds TV in a second media
center, causing some damage.
Al Quds TV is seen as sympa-
thetic to Hamas.

Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton
meets with
JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel
and the Hamas militant group
edged closer to a cease-fire Tues-
day to end a weeklong Israeli
offensive in the Gaza Strip, but
after a day of furious diplo-
matic efforts involving the U.S.
secretary of state, U.N. chief
and Egypt's president, a deal
remained elusive and fighting
raged on both sides of the border.
Israeli tanks and gunboats
pummeled targets in Gaza in
what appeared to be a last-min-
ute burst of fire, while at least 200
rockets were fired into Israel. As
talks dragged on near midnight,
Israeli and Hamas officials, com-
municating through Egyptian
mediators, expressed hope that a
deal would soon be reached, but
cautioned that it was far from
"If there is a possibility of
achieving a long-term solution
to this problem by diplomatic
means, we prefer that. But if not,
then I am sure you will under-

stand that Israel will have to
take whatever actions are nec-
essary to- defend its people,"
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu said at a late-night
meeting with visiting Secretary
of State Hillary Rodham Clin-
Clinton ' was hastily dis-
patched to the region by Presi-
dent Barack Obama to join a
high-profile group of world lead-
ers working to halt the violence.
Standing alongside the Israeli
leader, Clinton indicated it could
take some time to iron out an
"In the days ahead, the United
States will work with our part-
ners here in Israel and across the
region toward an outcome that
bolsters security for the people
of Israel, improves conditions
for the people of Gaza and moves
toward a comprehensive peace
for all people of the region," she
Clinton expressed sorrow for
the heavy loss of life on both
sides, but called for the Palestin-
ian rocket attacks on Israel to
end and stressed that the Ameri-
can commitment to Israel's
security is "rock solid."
"The goal must be a durable
outcome that promotes regional

stability and advances the secu-
rity and legitimate aspirations of
Israelis and Palestinians alike,"
she said.
In Washington, State Depart-
ment spokeswoman Victoria
Nuland said Clinton met with
Netanyahu and other Israeli
officials for two hours.
"They discussed efforts to de-
escalate the situation and bring
about a sustainable outcome that
protects Israel's security and
improves the lives of civilians
in Gaza," Nuland said. "They
also consulted on her impend-
ing stops in Ramallah and Cairo,
including Egyptian efforts to
advance de-escalation."
Israel launched the offensive
on Nov.14 in a bid to end months
of rocket attacks out of the
Hamas-run territory, which lies
on Israel's southern flank. After
assassinating Hamas' military
chief, it has carried out a blister-
ing campaign of airstrikes, tar-
geting rocket launchers, storage
sites and wanted militants.
The campaign has killed more
than 130 Palestinians, including
dozens of civilians, and wound-
ed hundreds of others. Five
Israelis have been killedby rock-
et fire, including a soldier and a
civilian contractor on Tuesday.
