WASHINGTON (AP) - De-
troit-area lawmakers yesterday ac-
cused the FBI of harassing Arab-
Americans by asking them about
potential Iraqi terrorism, saying the
interviews could make loyal citi-
zens targets of hate crimes.
"Many Arab-Americans are to-
day living in fear that hostilities
against them will increase as a re-
sult of events in the Middle East,"
said Rep. David Bonior, (D-Mount
Clemens). "Now they have a new
fear- that the FBI initiative is in-
creasing the climate for a back-
lash, not preventing it."
Bonior and Reps. John Conyers,
(D-Detroit), and John Dingell, (D-
Trenton), joined other members of
Congress at a news conference
with leaders of civil liberties and
ethnic organizations - including
Jewish and Arab-American groups.
The lawmakers warned they
may convene hearings if the FBI

does not change its policy of ask-
ing prominent Arab-Americans
about their political views or
knowledge of possible terrorist
plots.
The interviews imply that
"anybody of this descent could
well be people who ought to know
where terrorist activity is locatcd,"
Conyers said. He accused the FBI
of violating guidelines for do-
mestic intelligence gathering un-
der which people should be ap-
proached only if a crime is sus-
pected.
FBI spokesperson Mike Kortan
said a response was being pre-
pared.
Arab-American leaders have
complained for several weeks
about the interviews.
Many of the complaints have
come from residents of the Detroit
area, where about 250,000 Arab-
Americans live - the nation's

largest concentration of people
Arab descent. Community leade
discussed the FBI's actions with
agency leaders last week.
Bonior, Conyers and Dingell
said they also had met with
FBI officials, who claimed their
interview program was designed in
part to guard against anti-Arab
violence.
Dingell said the FBI had a
sured him it would take pains to
conduct the interviews without vio-
lating civil rights.
"We are Americans," Albert
Mokhiber, president of the Ameri-
can-Arab Anti-Discrimination
Committee, said in a letter to FBI
Director William Sessions. "Yet,
as a result of the Bureau's mis-
guided attempt to ferret out poten-
tial acts of terrorism, Arab-Amer
cans have felt obligated to pro-
claim their loyalty."

bia early yesterday and captured
allied soldiers. There was no
independent confirmation of the
Iranian report.
Also today, U.S. and British
officials said they were eroding
Saddam Hussein's ability to
launch Scud missiles on Iraq's
neighbors.
On Tuesday night, debris
from a Patriot-Scud interception
rained down on a compound
housing Americans who work at
the Saudi-owned Aramco oil

company.
The U.S. military had
confirmed the blazes at several
Kuwaiti oil facilities on
Tuesday, and said heavy smoke
from the fires could hamper
attacks on Iraqi troop positions.
The fires may burn for weeks, oil
and salvage industry executives
said.
Iraq trumpeted the Tel Aviv
attack, saying its missiles have
"the protection of God." Iraqi
radio also said the strike against
Israel was "for the sake of
Palestine."
Saddam has repeatedly tried
to link any settlement of the

Persian Gulf conflict to an
Israeli withdrawal from occupied
Arab lands - a formulation the
United States has rejected.
A day earlier, Iraq had
threatened to tie its treatment of
prisoners of war to the Arab-
Israeli conflict. Iraqi radio said
the Baghdad government would
abide by the Geneva
Conventions only "provided the
same is applied to the people of
Palestine." Iraq says it has
moved American POWs to
strategic sites in Iraq to help
shield against allied air strikes.

rather than dispersing it throughout
the term," said Suzanne Maniere,
a first-year LSA student.
Moenart said he believes that
financial aid may be affected by

dropping the third payment from
tuition installments.
"There probably will, be more
need for financial aid sooner," he
said.
Some University students ex-
pressed concern about having less
time to make their tuition pay-
ments.

the adverse publicity that may
come from disclosure of its mili-
tary research, she added.
Some students were unsure
about whether the sit-in method
of protest was right.
"I can't make a definitive
statement in support or against
the sit-in. The aim I agree with

but the whole idea of sitting in I
have mixed feelings about," said
James Barnes, a first-year engi-
neering student.
"I don't agree with sit-ins in

Buchan filed the Freedom of In-

"It's an iffy time to implemei
a change because of the war and

junior Steve Feinstein.
"Even though it might take
stress off during finals, it's going to
put more stress on students at the

junior Wendy West.
long, extensive, and broad. It asked
for all the information available oA
police rights to use force and th
guidelines controlling police forces,
and according to law much of that
does not have to be disclosed. The
request was extremely broad."
Nordby added that she would
"welcome a chance and be happy to
talk to the committee," regarding the
rejections.
Buchan said the committee is
considering taking action against th@
University, if the information re-
quest is rejected again upon resub-
mission.
Third-year law school student
Stephen Pick, who is helping
Buchan explore legal options for ac-
tion against the University, said the
SRC hasn't decided exactly what
avenues to pursue yet.
"The Freedom of Informatioj
Act statute itself provides for an ex
pedited court procedure," Pick said.
"If we get a final rejection from the
University, Michigan law would al-
lows for us to file suit in the Washt-
enaw County Circuit court, and al-
lows for a judge to order the Univer-
sity to force the University to release
the information. So we are leaving
the avenue to court open."
Corey Dolgon, SRC chair, saiu
he found the request rejection diffi-
cult to understand.
"This is a University - we're
supposed to be about freedom of in-
formation and exchange of ideas,"
Dolgon said.
