Many students at the demonstra-
tions said they were upset because
they have friends or relatives living
in Israel. One such student was ju-
nior Jennifer Hurwitz, who arrived in
the United States last Tuesday morn-
ing after spending a semester at Tel
Hurwitz said she was shocked
Thursday evening when she learned
of Iraq's attack. "I was devastated. I
was in shock and I couldn't believe
that I was there two days ago. I was
just hoping and praying the damage
was not severe," she said.
Hurwitz described the atmosphere
in Tel Aviv as relatively calm until
Monday when gas masks were dis-
tributed to students. "There was a
heightened sense of awareness that
something was ominous - that
something was going to happen,"
Both rallies were the joint efforts
of 14 student groups that work out
of Hillel, the Jewish student center.
Students were informed of the vigil
largely by word of mouth, Nacht
The vigil lasted for nearly 20
minutes, and concluded with a mo-
ment of silence. "We'd like to thank
you all for coming here, and we
hope to see each other again during
better times," RC sophomore Trevor
Hart told the solemn crowd before it
Computer network allows for
communication with Israelis
by Yangi Lama
As the world anxiously
awaited word from Israel after Iraqi
missiles struck last Thursday, an
international computer network
allowed Israeli users in Tel Aviv,
Jerusalem, and Haifa - and
students in Ann Arbor - to
communicate thoughout the attack.
Through Internet Relay Chat
(IRC) - a special network that al-
lows users to converse by being
channeled through servers located
around the world - international
events are being transmitted faster
than network news and radio.
Computer Engineering senior
Mike Pelletier, a regional IRC
server, said over 300 users were
on-line during the attack - almost
double the usual number of users
on line at any given time.
Pelletier said IRC was the
only information source in Europe
for four hours after the March 17
bombing of Israel by Iraq.
International users relayed in-
formation they heard from local
media while Israelis described
what they were experiencing first-
Pelletier said users in Israel
remained on-line while donning
gas masks telling of air raid sirens,
local news reports, and their
growing apprehension. Many had
terminals in their sealed rooms and
continued typing throughout the
crisis. One user in Haifa under the
name "Nati" typed "I'm shaking"
during the bombardment.
One user in Haifa
under the name 'Nati'
typed '1'm shaking'
For Pelletier, being on-line
with users all over the world,
especially those in Israel during
the bombing, was an experience
that made the war even more
personal. "I'm worried about Nati
in Haifa," he said. Pelletier has
not heard from Nati on IRC since
Even though several
University students and Ann Arbor
residents use IRC, Pelletier said
he is surprised it isn't more
Pelletier described IRC as
"truly the global village,"
Developed four years ago in
Finland by Jarkko Oikarinen, IRC
is a quicker alternative to the
"talk" utility available on most

and headed to the Diag to spread

As the SOS rally continued, a
small, silent gathering of SAUSI

ment) supporters passed out fly-
ers on the outskirts of the rally.
"SAUSI feels they have been
misunderstood about their sup-
port of troops," said Benjamin
Sandler, an LSA sophomore.

"We want to show people we

Participants in the SOS rally
disagreed with SAUSI's priori-
ties regarding the war.
"I think (SAUSI) protesters
send a wrong message. When
soldiers there find out what peo-
ple here are doing against what
they are doing their morale will
decrease. We need to show our
support," said Melissa Saari, an

suggesting they were reading from

Zaun sent greetings to his par-

them to pray for peace, and said
slowly, "I think our leaders and our
people have wrongly attacked the

confirm the identities immedi-
ately, but Schwarzkopf said he
would be "very surprised" if Iraq
was not holding Americans.

Anti-war sentiment hit the
Naval ROTC unit at North Hall
early last Thursday morning when
vandals spray painted and slashed
the tires of two Navy ROTC vans.
The vandals used black spray
paint to blot out the name of the
ROTC unit and the telephone
number on the doors of two white
navy transport vans. A total of four
tires on the vans were slashed.
Capt. Philip Klintworth, a U.S.
Navy Commanding Officer said
the trucks will be sent for repair.
"It doesn't accomplish anything
but to put money in the pockets of
some repair shop out of town,"
Klintworth said. He added that he
does not know why the the trucks
were vandalized, but called it an
unfortunate incident and a waste of
the taxpayers' money.
One NROTC member, who was
sent out to fix the slashed tires,
said government property should

opportunity to resupply the
ground forces," said Foley.
Nunn and Foley led the unsuc-
cessful fight in Congress a week
ago to deny Bush the authority to
wage war, but since have stressed
their support for the war effort.
Foley and other lawmakers
spoke on inierview programs yes-
terday morning as President Bush
spent the day at his presidential re-
treat at Camp David.
A spokesperson said Bush re-
ceived a war briefing by telephone
from Brent Scowcroft, his national
security adviser and was keeping
in touch with calls to the White
House situation room.
On Saturday, Bush approved a
reserve call-up that could poten-
tially double the number of re-
servists serving on active duty.
Pentagon spokesperon Pete
Williams said the military "has no
intention of calling up one million
people for two years." He also said
the approval could increase the
number of reservists on active duty
from 161,887 at present to a possi-
Public opinion polls have found
Americans upbeat about the
progress about gulf war, according
to a poll taken by the Gallup Or-
ganization for CNN Thursday and
Friday. 29 percent of Americans
polled said they were very worried
and an additional 38 percent were
somewhat worried war could
spread throughout the region or
other parts of the world.
At the same time, 73 percent
said they thought the United States
and its allies were winning the
war. Virtually nobody thought Iraq
was winning and 20 percent said
neither side was winning.
A Los Angeles Times poll
Thursday and Friday found that
more than three-fourths of Ameri-
cans said Israel has the right to re-
taliate for repeated missile attacks.
But raising the possibility that
such an Israeli response could
break up the U.S. - organized al-
liance changes the result. The
ABC poll found that when respon-
dents were told of Iraq's desire to
draw Israel into the war, a 69-25
percent margin said Israel should
leave the fighting to the United

Other ROTC members would
not comment on the vandalism.
Marine Officer Instructor Mike
Gasapo said ROTC members were
cautioned not to make personal
statements that could be
misinterpreted as reflecting the
opinion of the naval unit.
