Native American Outreach

A report released Monday by
Northwestern's Native Ameri-
can Outreach and Inclusion Task
Force outlined a series of recom-
mendations for Northwestern
University, the Daily Northwest-
ern reported.
The report offers more than
50 ways that the University can
improve their relationship with
Native American communities
on campus, including creating an
Indigenous Research Center and
renaming programs and build-
ings after University founder John
Evans. It also calls for hiring a
staff member within Multicul-
tural Student Affairs to support
Native American students.
Northwestern Psychology Prof.
Doug Medin, who served on the

task force, was confident in the
ways that the report will help
increase Native American inclu-
sion on campus.
"The recommendations are
both concrete and quite exten-
sive," he said. "I think that indi-
cates the seriousness with which
Northwestern is beginning to
address its relationship with
Native nations and Native Ameri-
can people."

A press release stated that the
members of the fraternity had two
accounts of sexual assault charged
against them over the span of two
years. There was not enough evi-
dence to fully support the case
that occurred in 2013. The case
that took place in 2014, however,
was found to have violated the
USC Code of Student Conduct.
Ainsley Carry, vice provost for
student affairs, released a press
statement Monday that criticized
the fraternity for their behavior.
She also expressed disappoint-
ment in the entire fraternity
through actions set forth by the

Her political career in jeop-

"I'm going to fight for the people

Rep. Bill Cassidy, Landrieu's

Following violence
and five deaths,
tensions run high
amid conflict
JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel
vowed harsh retaliation Tues-
day for a Palestinian attack
that killed five people and left
blood-smeared prayer books
and shawls on the floor of a
synagogue in Jerusalem - an
assault that sharply escalated
already-high tensions after
weeks of religious violence.
The attack during morning
prayers in the west Jerusalem
neighborhood of Har Nof was
carried out by two Palestin-
ian cousins wielding meat
cleavers, knives and a hand-
gun. They were shot to death
by police after the deadliest
assault in the holy city since
2008.
Four of the dead were rab-
bis and one was a police offi-
cer who died of his wounds
hours after the attack. Three
of the rabbis were born in
the United States and the
fourth was born in England,
although all held dual Israeli
citizenship. Five others were
wounded.
Palestinian President Mah-
moud Abbas condemned the
attack, the first time he has
done so in the wave of deadly
violence against Israelis. But
he also called for an end to
Israeli "provocations" sur-

rounding Jerusalem's shrines
that are sacred to both Mus-
lims and Jews.
President Barack Obama
called the attack "horrific"
and without justification,
urging cooperation from both
sides to ease tensions and
adding that too many Israelis
and Palestinians have died in
recent months,
Tuesday's attack, however,
appeared to mark a turn-
ing point, with the gruesome
scene in a house of worship
shocking a nation long accus-
tomed to violence.
The government released a
photo of a meat cleaver it said
came from the crime scene.
Government video showed
blood-soaked prayer books
and prayer shawls in the
synagogue. A pair of glasses
lay under a table, and thick
streaks of blood smeared the
floor.
"I saw people lying on the
floor, blood everywhere,"
said Yosef Posternak, who
was at the synagogue in the
quiet neighborhood that has a
large community of English-
speaking immigrants.
"People were trying to
fight with (the attackers) but
they didn't have much of a
chance," Posternak told Isra-
el Radio.
In one of Israel's first acts
of retaliation, Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu ordered
the demolitions of the homes
of the attackers. But halting
further violence could prove

to be a tough challenge as
police confront a new threat:
Lightly armed assailants
from annexed east Jerusalem
who hold residency rights
that allow them to move free-
ly throughout the country.
Netanyahu condemned the
deaths of the "innocent and
pure Jews." In a nationally
televised address, he accused
Abbas of inciting the recent
violence and said the Pales-
tinian leader's condemnation
of the attack was insufficient.
Hamas, the militant Pal-
estinian group that runs the
Gaza Strip, praised the attack.
In Gaza, dozens celebrated in
the streets, with some offer-
ing trays full of candy.
The U.S.-born victims were
identified as Moshe Twer-
sky, 59, Aryeh Kupinsky, 43,
and Kalman Levine, 55. The
Israeli Foreign Ministry said
the British man was Avraham
Goldberg, 68, who immigrat-
ed to Israel in 1993.
It described the four as
"rabbis," an honorific title
in the ultra-Orthodox world
given to men who are consid-
ered pious and learned. Twer-
sky, a native of Boston, was
the head of the Toras Moshe
Yeshiva, a seminary for Eng-
lish-speaking students. He
was the son of Rabbi Isador
Twersky, founder of Harvard
University's Center for Jew-
ish Studies, and a grandson
Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik,
a luminary in the world of
modern Orthodox Jewry.
