"And then came the Palestine
Intifadah which erupted in December
1987," said Mazrui.
He said that although the
Palestinian youths were militarily
much weaker than any of the Arab
armies which Israel had defeated in
five wars, they were "endowed with a
moral will which was of a different
urder."'
"Then in Beijing in the spring of
1989, another set of young people
initiated their own form of
Intifadah," said Mazrui.
At first the demonstrations in
Beijing, he said, were given more
tolerance by the regime in Beijing
than any tolerance extended to
Palestinians under 20 years of Israeli
occupation.
Mazrui added that while the Third
World (that is, most of Asia, Africa
and Latin America) has a high
propensity for collective masochism,
the First World (Europe, the US and
Japan) has a long record of collective
sadism.
"Third World countries commit
brutalities mainly against their own
people. First world countries com-
mit their worst brutalities against
other people,"said Mazrui.
Mazrui said this spring, the stu-
dents in China (which is ideologi-
cally part of the socialist Second
World, but technologically is part of
the developing Third World) declared

ion was not enough and the students
wanted to move closer to the First
World paradigm."1
He said China's Third World real-
ity surfaced with the reassertion of
collective masochism during the bru-
tal weekend in June.
On the whole, Mazrui said Israel
is both technologically and ideologi-;
cally a First World country, in spite.
of fact that a large proportion of its
population is ethnically Third
World.
Mazrui said Israel, which started
as a product of deliberate Jewish col-
onization in 1948 with the estab-
lishment of settlements was "very
much like the settlements of the Mazrui

LaGROC speaks out
BY ANN EVE LET H
About 25 members and supporters of the Lesbian and Gay Men's
Rights Organizing Committee gathered at Hill Auditorium Sunday at
the Plymouth Canton High School Graduation to combat the continued
insensitivities to gay men and lesbian rights demonstrated by the high
school paper and the school's principal.
The principal refused LaGROC's request to come to the high school
to distribute information about gay men and lesbian rights after the
school paper ran a homophobic editorial, which included "(gay men and
lesbians) deserve to be shot."
Sunday, protesters distributed flyers to dispel myths concerning les-
bians and gay men.
Last October, a Plymouth man was murdered because he was gay.
"The editorial perpetuates this kind of violence," said LaGROC
member Linda Kurtz.
Research head named
BY ANN MAURER
Prof. William Kelly will be recommended to serve as interim vice-
president for research by University President James Duderstadt at the
University's Board of Regents meeting next week.
If approved, Kelly will begin his appointment July 1st, replacing
Linda Wilson who has been named president of Radcliffe College.
Kelly has been with the University since 1956 and is presently the
associate vice-president for research. He is an internationally recognized
authority on the application of chemistry, minerology, and petrology to
the study of ore deposits.
As vice-president, Kelly will be involved in research projects cam-
pus-wide including medical and military.
This past year, Kelly chaired the LSA dean search committee to find
a replacement for Peter Steiner, who will retire in August. Kely also
served on the LSA executive committee from 1984-87
Invisible galaxies found
BY MICHELLE RABIDOUX
The University hosted 475 astronomers from around the world this
week for the 174th meeting of the American Astronomical Society.
"We meet only two times a year and a lot of discoveries get made in
the six months between meetings," Steve Maran, an AAS press officer,
said.
University Prof. Gregory Bothun presented his research on low-sur-
face brightness galaxies - potentially huge masses of stars that never
developed the visibility of galaxies like the Milky Way.
Sidney Wolff, Director of the National Optical Astronomy
Observatories, and Patrick Osmer, a project scientist, discussed the pro-
posed building of two eight-meter telescopes in Hawaii and in Chile for
full-sky viewing. The computer-driven telescopes will have a diameter
of 8 meters and are. expected to cost between 125 and 130 million dol-
lars to build, considerably less than sending a space satellite to take
such photos.
