Middle East conflict hits close to home


Israeli-Palestian peace talks start


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Staff Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

A conflict that has plagued the Middle East
for more than half a century reached David
Drescher nine months ago, when he heard
some terrible news.
A student from his high school in Plantation


was killed by a suicide bomber when he was
visiting his family in Israel. Drescher, who is
Jewish and has visited family in Israel four
times, said his community was upset by the
death.
"It was shocking that something so far
away can hit so cose to home," said the UF
political science junior.
On the other side of the conflict, UF student


Khader Abualhayjaa's family has suffered
their own losses.
When Abualhayjaa's paternal grandfather,
Khader Abu El-Haija, was expelled from
his Palestinian hometown of Ein Houd by
the Israeli government
International in 1948, he took his
News house key. Like other
Palestinian exiles, he
thought the war would only last a week. But
the conflict dragged on, and Abu E1-Haija was
forced to start a new life with his family in


Jordan, Abualhayjaa said.
By the time Abu El-Haija visited Israel
in the early 1990s, he found Israelis living in
the house he still owned. But Abualhayjaa,
who considers himself both Jordanian and
Palestinian, hopes he will eventually be able to
return to his family's homeland.
"The first generation (of Palestinians) are
still waiting," Abualhayjaa said. "And the sec-
ond and third generation were bom and (are)

Fair celebrates


Islamic cultures


* THE EVENT BEGINS IS-
LAM AWARENESS MONTH.

By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

With recitations of the Quran
blaring in the background, Islam
on Campus served baklava, hum-
mus and Arabian coffee on the
Plaza of the Americas on Thursday
to celebrate the beginning of Islam
Awareness Month.
The organization set up about
eight tables, which displayed items
from countries such as Egypt,
Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and
Saudi Arabia.
A few Muslim students gath-
ered nearby and passed around a
hookah pipe.
Eid Alotaibi attracted students
to his table by modeling tradi-
tional Saudi Arabian dress. He slid


his shimagh, a head scarf wom by
Saudi Arabian men, over his head
and laughed as he explained that
the red-checkered cloth could be
folded into a handful of fashion-
able designs.
The business major, who is.
studying at the English Language
Institute, said the garb keeps
people cool when they are out in
the desert sun. A warmer version
of the outfit is worn on the few
days when Saudi Arabia gets cold,
he said.
After his display, Alotaibi
picked up aplate and offered dates,
a raisin-like fruit popular in coun-
tries such as Iraq and Morocco, to
passing students. He also poured
cups of Arabian coffee.
"Dates always come with cof-
fee," he said. "You cannot separate
them."
Around 11:30 a.m., members of
the group worked together to serve

Rescued rabbits hop into hearts of city residents


* SOME STUDENTS BUY THE PETS.

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

Weighing in at six pounds, with grayish-
white fur and sometimes-floppy ears, Albert
the bunny is an unlikely dictator.
But still, there he goes, bounding about his
declared territory: the kitchen, laundry room
and breakfast nook of Kathy Finelli's home.
Albert's one of the lucky ones, Finelli said.
As the program director for Gainesville Rabbit
Rescue, she's seen a lot of bunnies end up in
one of the rescue's temporary foster homes


' after being surrendered or abandoned.
Butvwith about 75 rabbits divided among
three homes, free space is dwindling faster
than the rabbits can find new owners.
About 65 percent of the donated rabbits
come from owners unwilling to care for their
pets any longer, Finelli said.
Another 25 percent are the children of two
rabbits mistakenly thought to be different
sexes and kept in the same cage (the so-called
oopss litter").
After being donated, the bunnies are
named, medically examined and spayed or
neutered.
Then, the wait for a home begins.
Bunnies like the heart-stealing Jesse James


and the suave Count Chocula spend most of
their time at the foster home in their cages,
where they have a litter box, food, waterbowls
and maybe a toy or two.
Exercise time is the bunnies' favorite, she
said. With the exuberance of "small children
out of school," they run
Around through tubes, toss toys in
Galne&gv i e the air with their mouths,
play follow the leader and
do little bunny jumps,
known around the foster homes as "binkies."
Of the 75 rabbits currently cared for by the
rescue, about 30 are in bonded pairs with other
bunnies they grew up with.
Finelli said these bonded pairs are so emo-


tionally attached that if one of the pair dies, the
other may die within a couple of weeks.
Such pairs can't be split up, which makes
them a hard sell even with their lowered price
(a single rabbit is $45 and a bonded pair is
$60).
Finelli said bunnies make good pets for
students because of their small size and low
maintenance. UF nursing senior Leah Cooper
bought her bunny, Shelby, three years ago
when she wanted a pet but couldn't bring a
dog or cat to her Gainesville Place apartment.
"She's very active and very loving," she
said. "It's the only pet I could have right now
and bond with and still have the limited time
schedule I have."

UF study evaluates student drinking habits


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Members of the Community
Alcohol Coalition listened to sta-
tistics about student drinking at a
meeting Thursday.
Dennis Thombs, an associate pro-
fessor in the Department of Health
Education and Behavior, presented


results from a pilot study that evalu-
ated the alcohol serving patterns of
15 local bars and restaurants, as well
as college students' drinking habits.
But in an interview, Thombs said
the study was too small to make any
generalities and the results revealed
"nothing very surprising."
"Only an incredibly naive person
would be shocked by this," he said.
The observations revealed 14 per-

cent of servers gave alcoholic bever-
ages to customers free of charge and
10 percent gave drinks to "obviously


intoxicated" people.
Researchers also noted that 19
percent of servers appeared to have
given drinks to people younger than
21, though the statistic was based on
"subjective judgment."
Surveys taken of people leaving
locations revealed that men spent
an average of $24.09 on alcohol
per night, while women only spent
about $9, excluding cover charges.


However, the presentation stated
predrinking as a "major issue," with
59 percent of men and 46 percent of
women reporting that they drank
before going out.
GPD Lt. Scott Meffen also gave a
presentation that reported 176 cita-
tions for drinking violations were
given out at bars and restaurants on
University Avenue and downtown
from September to December.


Student organization helps homeless get degrees


GED will give them opportunities


By DANIELLE TORRENT
Alligator Writer

Only about one in 10 homeless residents
in Gainesville has a high school diploma.
A new UF student organization hopes to
change that.
UF's chapter of Student World Assembly,
an international service organization that fo-
cuses on improvement in the community, is
training student volunteers to teach homeless


residents how to take the GED test, which
would give the residents the equivalent of a
high school diploma.
"We figured one of the best ways to battle
homelessness would be to get to the root of
the problem," said Robby E. Sweeney, 20,
vice president of the assembly. "And in many
cases, the root is simply a lack of education."
Jon DeCarmine, director of the Alachua
County Office on Homelessness, said the
program is a step in the right direction.


"It would be a really good start to building
relationships with folks who are just mem-
bers of the community," DeCarmine said.
DeCarmine said he thinks the program
has a good chance at succeeding.
Starting next week, assembly volun-
teers will be meeting
Around with residents of the
:-;.: .:'.i. ; :: Sunrise Residence Inn in
Gainesville a shelter for
homeless people who are
employed but cannot afford to live indepen-
dently, said Sadie Burgos, a case manager at
the complex.


The volunteers will be teaching reading,
math and science skills to any of the shelter's
interested residents including the illiterate
ones.
Funding for the program was donated by
Friends of the Library. Of the 29 people cur-
rently residing in Sunrise Residence Inn, five
plan on participating in the program, Burgos
said.
"My hope is that they do reach their goal
and they do go to college," she said.
The volunteers also had the option of
receiving UF credit for participating in the
program through the America Reads course.


Vista change 'slow'


* BUT SENATE BILL MAY
HELP IN THE FUTURE.

By ARIELLA GUTMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Although some technophiles are
eager to check out Microsoft's new
Windows Vista, released Tuesday,
UF won't be affected by the new op-
erating system in the short run.
UF's Interim Chief Information
Officer Marc Hoit said the Office of
Information Technology has been
experimenting with Vista for more
than a year through Microsoft's
Technology Adoption Program.
The program allows customers
to preview Microsoft products be-
fore they are released in exchange
for feedback on the product.
"Vista has lots of good things, but
is it enough to make the change?"
Hoit said. "For a campus this large it
will be hard, and the answer is yes,
.slowly."
Hoit said it would be up to each
college whether to integrate the
system. However, Hoit said he's in


charge of making decisions for the
computer labs.
"We won't make the switch until
we know everything is going to run
smoothly and cause no problems,"
he said.
Some of the software UF cur-
rently uses won't run on Vista, he
said. Also, a lack of funds prevents
UF from providing it to the entire
campus.
But a state
Senate bill filed
last week would,
if passed, allow
S Florida's public
S universities to
S charge a fee that
Hoit would specifi-
cally go toward improving their
technology.
Pavel Tzonkov, a UF electrical
engineering junior, said he supports
the bill if it would "help protect
things like my WebMail and get
Vista for free."
"(Vista) has great capabilities
with applications for my major,"
Tzonkov said.


Alumnus' play debuts


By INNA GOYKHMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

After over 30 years of teaching at
the UF School of Theatre and Dance,
professor David Shelton is getting a
curtain call.
Shelton will perform for the
last time in the world premiere of
"American Western," which opens
at 8 tonight at Constans Theatre.
The play was written by UF
alumnus Neal Utterback and is di-
rected by Kevin Marshall, director
of the School of Theatre and Dance.
Shelton explained that the play
presents a highly private drama that
focuses on the human cost of war.


"Kevin Marshall always says
that it's about truth and betrayal,"
said Shelton. "Its about a search for
truth, and that's about as good as I
can explain it."
Shelton performs the role of a
ghost character seen
On only by one other per-
Campus son in the show.
"I play an imagi-
nary friend, of sorts," he said. "He is
dreamed up by a soldier in Iraq."
Shelton, who teaches acting and
directing to both undergraduate and
graduate students, will be retiring at
the age of 66.
The play is scheduled to run
from Feb. 2 to Feb. 11.

The Gator Nation extended to
the nation's capital on Thursday
morning when four UF students
joined political leaders at the 55th
annual National Prayer Breakfast.


Students from universities
across the country were invited to
attend the breakfast.
"It was inspiring to be a part of
a gathering that was in the spirit
of Jesus, where we were seeking
the face of God for strength and
direction for our country," said
Katie Schrimsher, an elementary
and special education senior.

Tibet exhibit visits natural museum

By ETHEL MORENO
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Florida Museum of Natural History held a sneak ,"-:
preview Thursday night for the "Tibet: Mountains and .
Valleys, Castles and Tents" exhibit.
At the opening ceremony, guests heard a Tibetan prayer
and saw the creation of a sand mandala, which is a large, i ;. i
intricate pattern designed with sand.
Visitors will be able to view the sand mandala until Feb.
14, when it will be destroyed at the dosing ceremony.
Darcie MacMahon, the associate director of exhibits, said ; i
the exhibit is a traveling event from The Newark Museum
and was reserved a few years ago. :
The objects featured in the exhibit range in date from the .R-
13th century through the 1950s.
The showcased pieces belonged to rulers, nomads,
priests and common people of that time period.
"They have so much talent to be able. ~ -.
to make this without any patterns or .-
machinery."
Lori Clayton
museum member


The installation includes a collection of rugs, photos,
containers and jewelry. Some of the pieces were for special
occasions and some were used in everyday life, but all the
objects are rare and were forbidden under Communist
rule.
The exhibit also features an installation of photographs
from the Dolpa region of northern Nepal that were taken by
museum staff member Andrei Sourakov.
Sourakov went on an expedition to Nepal to photo-
graph the butterfly species that inhabit Dolpa's Himalayan
valleys. His photographs document his two-month journey
and include pictures of butterflies and the Tibetan people
of that region.
Lori Clayton, a member of the museum, said she thought
the exhibit was very informative and educational.
Clayton added that her favorite piece is a wedding tent
because of the intricate designs and colors.
"They have so much talent to be able to make this with-
out any patterns or machinery," she said.
The exhibit will be on display from Feb. 3 to May 28.

frenzy raises


heart risk

By ERIN EHRLICH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Fans often take sports to heart lit-
erally.
During big sporting events, like
Sunday's Super Bowl, fans are at a
higher risk of strokes, heart attacks and
other cardiovascular problems, said
Dr. David Seaberg, chairman of UF's
department of emergency
Public medicine.
Health Excitement and stress
cause the body to release
adrenaline, which greatly
increases heart rate and blood pressure,
Seaberg said.
On weekends when UF's football
team plays, Shands at UF's emergency
room sees considerably more patients
-than on others, he said.
Seaberg said people unaware of ex-
isting health problems, especially men,
are most vulnerable. Men are less likely
to leave during the game to go to the
hospital, he said.
"Be careful out there," Seaberg
advised. "Its just a game, not a life or
death situation, and we don't want it to
become one."
UF student Jeff White said he's a
hard-core Pittsburgh Steelers fan, and
even during a heart attack, he'd stay at
the stadium.
"I would never, ever leave a Steelers
game, no matter what," White said.

6, ALLIGATOR 0 FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2,2007


It's been a long, cold week, and we're more than ready
for the weekend. Between planning Super Bowl parties
and hearing the announcement that the final Harry Potter
book is coming out in July, our calendars are suddenly
looking very busy. Those Hermione and Ron costumes
don't make themselves, you know.
Despite the temperatures hovering near freezing for
the past few days and they'll be dipping back down
next week we were able to drag ourselves away from
our electric blankets just long enough to write this week's
edition of...


Darts & Laurels
First we hand a what's-good-for-the-environment-is-
good-for-our-souls LAUREL to the Hare Krishnas for
vowing to switch from Styrofoam cups and plastic utensils
to sugarcane products. This will allow more than 800 stu-
dents each day to enjoy their lunch with a side of carbon-
neutrality, since the carbon dioxide created in making the
products is cancelled out by the carbon dioxide the grow-
ing plants absorb. How's that for a karma-free meal?
Next up, here's a welcome-to-the-future-and-the-
future-is-now LAUREL to the Warrington College of
Business for making lectures for some of its classes
available as audio and video podcasts. We could already
download movies and TV shows, and we've been watch-
ing lectures online for a few years. It was only a matter of
time before a marriage of the two was created.
And hopefully this will combat the problem of students
watching lectures in the libraries when we really need to
check our Facebook.com profiles between classes.
We have to throw a half-truths-are-still-whole-lies
DART in the direction of the UF administration for not
informing applicants about the-possible $1,000 Academic
Enhancement Program charge. Sure, the program hasn't
been approved by the Florida Legislature yet, but the
administration should be honest with the incoming fresh-
men.
You don't order a steak at a restaurant only to find out
you'llbe charged extra for some A.1. steak sauce. Likewise,
UF should include the charge in its estimated attendance
costs even though it's not set in stone yet.
And we can't resist giving a we-really-can't-wait-
for-your-campaign-posters LAUREL to the Pants Party,
which is returning to face off against the Greek-dominated
Gator Party.
The good news is that a two-party race means the non-
Greek portion of the vote won't be split. But the bad news
is that a lack of student participation will still probably
hand a victory to the Gator Party.
Now we hand a don't-worry-you're-still-the-linchpin-
of-American-consumerism LAUREL is for the Starbucks
on the comer of West University Avenue and Northwest
13th Street for finally caving in and setting a date to close
up shop. It's not like we can't get our daily caffeine jolt
from one of the other nine Gainesville Starbucks locations
including one in Library West. Or we could even buy
coffee from a totally different company.
Now, building University Comers can finally com-
mence. Andadoes anyone doubt for a second that a new
Starbucks won't be opened in the finished University
Comers? Like the yuppies would ever stand for that.
We feel a draft, and those blankets sure look warm. But
before we go, we'll chuck a just-another-politician-put-
ting-his-foot-in-his-mouth DART to Sen. Joseph Biden,
D-Del., who referred to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., as "the
first mainstream African-American who is articulate and
bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."
Seriously Joe, if-you're going to say it, at least don't say
it immediately after announcing your candidacy Sorry,
but you just lost our vote. Maybe we'll give it to that
"clean" guy instead.

Column

University Corners
University Comers. The mere mention of the name
inspires rage in the average Gainesvillian. The
$125 million development has been in the news for
years now, inspiring disapproval among almost every sect
of the population even the Hare Krishnas had a beef
with the project at one point. It's hard to find a single soul
who still supports the development.
But you're only getting one side of the story. Many of
the "truths" about University Comers have been either
greatly exaggerated or completely fabricated. The argu-
ments against the development are tenuous at best, and
the media coverage of its crawl toward completion has
been radically biased. But the truth is, every resident of
Gainesville should support University Corers. Here's
why.
The public opposes University Comers mostly be-
cause of the way developers purportedly acquired the
property and because of the widespread idea that the
finished product will be a shrine to corporate sprawl and
consumerism.
Many businesses caused a stir by refusing to sell their
properties when first approached by University Comers,
and naturally the public sided with these businesses. But
most were promised leases in the new development and
were offered buyouts worth many times their businesses'
actual value.
The developers even offered to pay the owner of Maui
Teriyaki his average yearly profit every year for the next
decade in addition to the value of his property yet he
still declined to sell.
Usually when private property owners refuse to sell
to big corporate development projects, the government
steps in. The government's power of eminent domain has
expanded greatly in the past several decades; and it now
routinely exercises it to cheaply acquire property for large
developments, such.as University Comers.
The views expressed here are not

There was no coercion of property

negotiable seizures of property
and no ridiculously undervalued,


Josh Simmons mandatory buyouts.
Just Josh The only support the city has
letters@alligator.org offered University Comers is a
significant tax break millions of
dollars over 26 years. This is gener-
ally parroted as evidence that the city is subsidizing the
project, and that it could not stand on its own. But the city
isn't actually transferring any money to the developers,
nor is it losing revenue because of the tax break.
This money is actually a large portion of the taxes that
will be charged to the development over the next quar-
ter-century. The city will simply not collect that money,
allowing it to be reinvested in the project. It will still
collect some taxes, though revenue that it would not
otherwise. Therefore, the city should actually turn a profit
with its investment.
Due to the sharp increase in property value that the
development is expected to bring, it's quite likely that
even a small portion of taxes brought in by the project will
be larger than all the taxes previously collected from the
businesses in the area. Simple economics tells us that even
with the tax break, the project will bring greater economic
development to the area.
There are two sides to the story here one of corpo-
rate sprawl and fictitious government intervention, and
another of increased tax revenue and economic develop-
ment. Which one you want to believe is your decision, but
at least be sure to get both sides.

Minus grades discussion not Open to all
So Faculty Senate Chairwoman Danaya
Wright thinks that Student Government
was irresponsible in its reaction to the
faculty's proposal of minus grades. Well,
Ms. Wright, right back at ya.
Wright complained that only two stu-
dents spoke at the Faculty Senate meeting
on minus grades, and both opposed the
idea. She wanted equal numbers in sup-
port and in opposition, so we could "talk
about it on an intellectual level."
So when it comes to raising faculty
pay and benefits, would the chairwoman
agree that time should be divided equally
between speakers in favor and opposed?
Or would she call such a format pedantic
and patronizing?
By the way, the reason so few students
spoke at the meeting was because it was
scheduled late in exam week. Many stu-
dents had already left Gainesville, and
most of the ones still in town were holed
up in the library studying for finals.
If the Faculty Senate honestly wanted
students to weigh in equally on minus
grades, it should have sought student in-
put in December 2005, when its Academic
Policy Council began discussing the issue.


Instead, the Faculty Senate waited
almost a year, until November 2006 a
month before the final vote, which was
conveniently, scheduled during exam
week. It's not like the students were silent
on the issue.
The Student Senate, which has more
than 90 members and speaks for the
whole student body, voted against mi-
nus grades. Almost 3,000 students joined
a Facebook.com group protesting the
proposal. Students have mechanisms for
debating such proposals and they're
not dictated by the whims of the Faculty
Senate.
No matter what you think about mi-
nus grades, the way the Faculty Senate
handled the proposal was inexplicable
and infuriating. The faculty led the call
for shared governance at UF because ap-
parently they don't like it when someone
else makes decisions that affect them with-
out having been involved in the process.
Guess what: Neither do students!

Campaign spending cap would be unfair
Todd Portnowitz's column Thursday
regarding campaign finance reform was
written with a nauseating air of populism
and a naivete that is all too characteristic
of supporters of public candidate financ-
ing. Presidential candidates do not raise
hundreds of millions of dollars for giggles.
They raise that money because that's what
it takes to win.
Today, winning the presidency means
a candidate needs to get 60 to 65 million
people to the polls to vote for him or her.
Capping campaign spending would only
cause a precipitous drop in voter turnout
due to a lack of advertising power, and it
would make it that much harder for dark-
horse candidates to win.
No wonder Hillary Clinton loves
campaign finance reform as much as
Mr. Portnowitz it would make it that
much easier for her to win the Democratic
.nomination. Or perhaps he thinks limiting
political competition is more democratic
than letting those without a lot of financial
backing have a chance to compete under
the current system.

An ode to championship-winning teams
Oh Urban and Billy,
How do we love thee? Let .us count the
ways.
We love thee for your time and work and
heart,
For our national championships. For all
the long days
Spent plotting and planning and playing
it smart.
We love thee to the level of every recruit.
Most quietly commit, by phone or by
text.
We love thee freely, as media men dis-
pute
Which five-star player Florida will get
next.
We love thee with the passion put to use
On those glorious days in the O'Dome or
Swamp.
We love thee with a love we'll never lose
For the players who give us the reason
to chomp.
Smiles, tears and all the emotions of a
winning year,
We love you for giving us no better place
to be than here.

Boyles teaches networking


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Student Body President John Boyles en-
tered Hume Hall, Room 119, on Thursday just
in time for his scheduled speech, to find an
eager audience of two.
The event was planned so honors students
could meet Boyles and learn about getting
involved at UF.
The intimate setting allowed the two stu-
dents freshmen Dhyana Sankar and Matt
Hobbs the opportunity to be mentored by
Boyles.
He advised his audience to get involved in
Student Government, encouraging them not
to give up if their initial pursuits fail.
That advice resonated with Hobbs, who
was rejected from the Florida Cicerones this


year. Boyles told him to seek comfort in the
fact that the group has a lower acceptance rate
than Harvard.
Boyles also advised getting involved in
groups such as Accent and Theatre Strike
Force.

Honors program head
Sheila Dickison, who was
also in attendance, empha-
sized the importance of
being involved in student
organizations.
"Network like crazy," she
said. "We underestimate the

Boyles said his success


has come from being in the right place at
the right time and being supported by great
people.


Auction to benefit kids


* MONEY WILL GO TOWORD
CHILDREN IN INDIA.

By AMRA ZEJNELI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Without saying a word,
Gainesville residents have a
chance to help children who are
halfway around the world.
A silent auction tonight will
raise money to buy supplies for
children in southern India who
would otherwise be too poor to
attend school.
UF junior Laura Gutane orga-
nized the event, and the United
World Organization, a UF student
group, is helping coordinate it.
The school supplies will go to
children in India who are part of
the lowest level in the caste system


and deemed "untouchable."
"By raising money through this
silent auction we will be able to
make a difference in other, less for-
tunate people's lives," Gutane said.
Most of the items collected for
the auction are handmade locally,
but there are also
Around items from coun-
Gainesville tries around the
world. There
will be artwork,
scarves, purses, jewelry, sweets
and pottery.
During the auction, entertain-
ment will be provided by the UF
Bhangra Group and West African
Dance students.
' Reaching for a Brighter Future
Silent Auction will take place to-
night at the Civic Media Center
from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.


Students and faculty express hope for peace


CONFLICT, from page 1

still waiting."
For the first time in six years, Israeli
and Palestinian authorities have agreed
to meet for peace talks. The Unites States-
is expected to play a key role in the nego-
tiations.
Despite low expectations, UF faculty
and students hope the talks will bring
Palestinians and Israelis closer to peace.
The talks start today with a meeting of
the Quartet, a coalition of United States,
European Union, Russian and United
Nations delegates. When the Quartet
met in 2002, they created a "road map"-
for peace.
Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice,
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas
will meet later this month to start the
three-party talks.
Officials have not revealed the specific
issues they plan to discuss but suggested
the talks would take steps toward creat-
ing a final peace treaty between Israel
and a Palestinian state. The last major
talks between the United States, Palestine
and Israel stalled during the Camp David
meetings in 2000.
Matthew Jacobs, an assistant history
professor, said the upcoming peace talks
are different from past negotiations. The
negotiators usually come up with specific
issues, such as proposals to hand Israeli
territory to the Palestinians, before mov-
ing to broader topics, he said. He called
the talks an "almost symbolic" effort to
show cooperation between the parties.
"They're trying to kick-start the pro-
cess," he said. "They're saying it's time to
sit down and talk."
The conflict between Israelis and


Palestinians ignited when Israel be-
came an officially recognized state in
1948. As masses of Jews and other set-
tlers flocked into the newborn country,
many Palestinians living in the area
were expelled from their homes. Some
Palestinians started new lives in nearby
Arab countries.
Others fought for land they consid-
ered theirs in a conflict that has continued
for nearly 60 years.
"They're trying to kick-start
the process. They're saying it's
time to sit down and talk."
Matthew Jacobs
UF assistant history professor

Different factions in Israel and
Palestine disagree on the legitimacy of
either Israeli or Palestinian states.
The Palestinian state would most
likely include the territories Israel
wrested from nearby Arab countries in
the Six Day War of 1967. These territories
include the Gaza Strip and the West Bank,
from which Israel withdrew all its settle-
ments in 2005.
Jatobs said both Olmert and Abbas
have weak support from their people.,
Olmert lost support during the conflict
between Israel and Lebanon last summer.
The conflict resulted in significant losses.
On the other hand, Abbas' Fatah party
has lost the support of the Palestinian
people to the militant Hamas party,
which refuses to recognize Israel as .an
official state.
To negotiate at the peace talks, Abbas
will have to show he can control or
steer Palestinian support away from
Hamas and other militant groups. But


if he concedes too many issues to the
Israelis, he will lose credibility among the
Palestinians.
Drescher said he supported the cre-
ation of a Palestinian state but was skepti-
cal of Abbas' ability to control his people
- especially when the militant wing of
Abbas' political party claimed respon-
sibility for Monday's suicide bombing.
This was the first bombing in Israel in
nine months.
"I find it very disheartening to see that
a man who is championed as a moderate
for the entire world can't even control a
faction of his own political group," he
said. "If he can't get them under control,
how is he going to get under control with
Hamas in power?"
Political science professor Ken Wald
said the United States has been largely
uninvolved in-the peace process since
President George W. Bush was elected in
2001. Getting involved in the peace pro-
cess will allow the United States to make
allies with Arab states and stabilize the
region, he said.
"To a large extent, this is just us trying
to increase goodwill," he said.
Jacobs said the talks will probably not
make much progress on larger issues,
such as creating a Palestinian state. He
said officials will instead concentrate on
smaller problems, such as economic aid
for Palestinians.
Hidden cards will play a role in the
peace process.
When Hamas rose to power last year,
Olmert froze $55 million in tax receipts
meant for the Palestinian Authority. He
can now use the money as a bargaining
tool.
"That's probably going to be the big
carrot; they dangle in front of Abbas,"
Jacobs said.

meal was served, a jar collected donations to
help educate kids in Bangladesh who usually
cannot afford to attend school after fifth grade,
said event co-chairman Sakil Hossain.
About 200 students stopped by and about
$500 was donated.


At a table nearby, Islam on Campus
President Abdualrahman Hamad swept his
fountain pen from right to left as he wrote stu-
dents' names in Arabic. Hamad was raised in
Chicago but learned Arabic calligraphy from
his Palestinian parents.
When he saw a student looking at nearby
house ornaments, he explained the Quran pas-
sages inscribed on them. Pointing at a triangu-
lar mirror decorated with the last chapter of
the Quran, Hamad said Islam teaches messag-


es that encourage people to open their hearts
and rid themselves of life's burdens through a
relationship with God.
STo him, the Quran re-
Multicu tural minds him to consider God
in every aspect of his life,
he said.
"Whether I serve God by getting an edu-
cation, inventing something that benefits hu-
manity or helping to relieve someone's stress,
being a Muslim is a way of life," he said.


While one student was being spiritual,
another focused on politics. Sociology doc-
toral student David Reznik displayed a poster
board with pictures of Palestinians engaging
in everyday activities, such as eating or danc-
ing, and of Palestinians injured by Israeli
bombs.
"I want to highlight the traditions of the
Palestinian people, but I also want people to
see the horrors Palestinian people have to live
with every day of their lives," he said.

Revenge at hand following pair of '06 losses to Vols


Alligator File Photo
Stunned Joakim Noah stares at the tooth Tennessee guard C. J. Watson knocked out of his mouth in the
Gators' 76-72 loss to the Volunteers on Feb. 22. Tennessee returns to Gainesville Saturday. at 3 p.m.


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

When the No. 1 Gators host rival
Tennessee on Saturday afternoon,
more than just a victory is at stake.
UF's pride is on the line.
"I don't want to say anything
that's going to get me in trouble or
anything, but after last year, I feel
like if anybody on our team doesn't
come ready to play on Saturday,
that'll be a problem," UF forward
Joakim Noah said.
Noah has been ready to play the
Volunteers since last season when
Tennessee's C.J. Watson elbowed
him in the mouth, knocking out a
tooth. Noah said he now sports a
mouth guard because of that game.
Corey Brewer is still haunted
by the two turnovers he commit-
ted in both games that resulted in
Tennessee's game-winning points.
"It was very hard just because
the ball was in my hands at the end
of the games, and I turned it over
twice," Brewer said. "I'l probably
think about it."


UF coach Billy Donovan knows
that his team has grown consider-
ably since then and doesn't expect to
see the same mistakes.
"I don't want to say any-
thing that's going to get
me in trouble or anything,
but after last year, I feel
like if anybody on our team
doesn't come ready to play
on Saturday, that'll be a
problem."
Joakim Noah
UF forward

"When you're dealing with a
young team like we were last year,
there's obviously not a lot of experi-
ence," Donovan said. "They thought
that the solution for everything they
did was to play harder and with
more passion."
Tennessee's personnel has
changed some since it last visited

RECRUin c t

DT Brown commits to UF


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

Another Lakeland Dreadnaught
joined the Gators' 2007 recruiting class
Thursday.
Defensive tackle John Brown chose
UF over Alabama, becoming the sixth
consecutive five-star commit for the
Gators.
Brown is the fifth-ranked tackle in
the country, sporting a 6-foot-i, 285-
pound frame.
"He's as good of a defensive line-
man as we've had since I've been
there," said Lakeland coach Bill
Castle, who learned of the verbal com-
mitment Thursday morning from the
school principal. "He's strong, power-
ful, plays well with his hands and he's
able to keep his feet under him and not
get off-balance."
Both Alabama and UF coaches were
on Lakeland's campus Thursday.
Brown's position coach, Dan Talbot,
said UF co-defensive coordinator
Charlie Strong met with the player
after the decision was made.
Brown will join Chris Rainey,


Ahmad Black, Michael and Maurkice
Pouncey, Paul Wilson and Steven
Wilks as the seventh Lakeland player
in this year's class.
"That says a lot not only about our
athletics, but also that they've been
good students," Castle added. "It's

a special group of
seniors that we had.
It's great, and I ap-
preciate Florida tak-
ing our players."
Brown will join
the No. 2 tackle in
the nation Seffner
Armwood High's


Torrey Davis in replacing former
Gators' tackles Marcus Thomas,
Steven Harris and Joe Cohen.
"(Brown's commitment) solidi-
fies a tremendous group of defensive
tackles," Scout.com recruiting analyst
Mike Bakas said. "Brown is a run stop-
per. He's really strong and plays low
to the ground, which makes him tough
to block. Davis is kind of the opposite,
more of a pass rusher. He's got longer
arms and legs, so they complement

Hapless Gators fold again


*UF IS STILL WINLESS IN THE SEC.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

It's like reaching your hand into a
candy jar, hoping for a different flavor
each time.
But when you open your fist, it's
always the same piece and it's been
dropped on the floor.
It's that same piece of candy for the UF
women's basketball team, as the Gators
(6-17, 0-8 Southeastern Conference)
dropped their tenth straight Thursday
night, losing to Mississippi (17-6, 6-2
SEC) 72-64 at the O'Connell Center.
In three of the past four home games,
SUF had a chance to win, but second-half
blunders have proven too costly.
Against the Rebels, the Gators shot a
paltry 27 percent in the second half after
putting up a solid 44 percent in the first.
While it appears UF is crumbling in
close games, Coach Carolyn Peck looks


at the intangibles involved.
"I don't think it's a matter of trying
too hard," Peck said. "It's just the com-
petitiveness and the fight these players
have in them. For a team that's as young
and as small as we are, they've got hearts
that are huge. I'll take trying too hard
(instead of) quitting or giving up. That's
two things these nine
players have not done."
The percentages were
not the biggest problem,
Basketball however, as Mississippi
also shot poorly 38
percent for the game.
"Two of our main focuses were we
wanted to take care of the ball, and we
wanted to try to eliminate their second
chance opportunities," Peck said. "We
didn't do a very good job at either. We
allowed Ole Miss 27 second-chance
points. When you lose by 8, that hurts.
That's the kicker."
The Gators are still struggling to box
out. Even though UF has only one player

Levine seeks impressive collegiate tennis debut versus Furman


ROUNDUP, from page 20
arguably the Gators' top player, will
make his dual match debut after be-

6-3, 6-3 in the International Tennis
Championships in Delray Beach.
"Obviously, we're a lot better


with Jesse," Jackson said. "Jesse's
going to play a certain very high
level."
While Jackson is happy to have
Levine back, his team's success
will be decided by other younger
players.
"The determining factor on how

Jackson said. "Jesse Levine is a

Young, Mulligan, Barton and
Cash made their dual-match debuts
Wednesday. The quartet was in-
volved in five of the eight matches,
posting a 2-3 record.
Sunday's 1 p.m. match against
No. 2 Baylor will present a new level
of tennis for the young players to
contend with.


None were around in 2006 when
then-No. 2 UF defeated the No. 7
Bears to snap their 61-match home
winning streak.
"We're not in Baylor's league

a successful week is playing well
against Furman."

Injured Lofton


may come back

M EN'S, from page 17


Gainesville, and the Vols' star player may
not be on the floor Saturday.
Chris Lofton has missed Tennessee's last
three games with a high-ankle sprain.
Even with his absence, the junior guard
is the Southeastern Conference's leading
scorer at 21.5 points per game.
Donovan wouldn't be surprised if Lofton
is cleared to play before the game, so he is
taking all precautionary measures to pre-
pare the Gators (20-2, 7-0 SEC).
"He's probably not going to start he'd
probably come off the bench and play sig-
nificant minutes," Donovan said. "But we're
going to prepare like he is."
UF's players aren't buying Tennessee's
word either. They know from experience
that injured players show up for big games.
"C'mon now Al (Horford) wasn't go-
ing to play against Ohio State?" Brewer said.
"Of course we think he's going to play, even
though he says he's not going to play."
Lofton may not want to miss the oppor-
tunity because this is the first time since the
1969-70 season that the Vols (15-7, 3-4 SEC)
have played the top-ranked team in the
Associated Press Poll. They are 2-8 all-time
against No. 1-ranked teams.
In a series where the intensity runs high,
it's inevitable that there will be some fight-
ing words exchanged on the floor.
Despite the five-technical game against
Vanderbilt, Noah said that the Gators will be
talking trash on Saturday.
Still, the players must be careful when a
referee is within earshot.
"It depends on the guy, but there are
certain things regardless of who the ref
is if you say them, then you're going to
get teched up," Noah said. "Especially when
the F-word comes up. Then you're going to
get one."

each other really well.
"Good defensive tackle prospects
are really hard to find, and whenever
you get two guys that good in the
same class on the interior of your de-
fensive line that's making a pretty
big statement."
The Gators have the No. 1 recruit-
ing class in the nation and will most
likely keep that ranking, but they will
need to solve some academic issues
- Brown and Davis haven't academi-


cally qualified yet, Bakas said.
"On paper, right now it looks like
a tremendous class, but there's still a
lot of time and classroom work to be
done," he said.
UF may add a few more play-
ers before National Signing Day on
Wednesday.
"(Four-star linebacker) Brandon
Hicks, (five-star defensive end) Allen
Bailey, Terrence Toliver and Deonte
Thompson (five-star wide receivers)
are some really high-profile kids that
(UF) could make room for," Bakas
said.

over 6-feet, those excuses are wearing
thin.
"We're a good blank team," said Peck,
refraining from using choice words. "The
thing about it is, in order to be great -
because in the SEC you got to be a great
team you have to do the little things.
That's taking care of the ball and boxing
out. Even as tough as the defense may
be, that may force you into turnovers,
the thing that you can always do and
has to be a gut check in effort, and that's
box out."
Forward Marshae Dotson did her job
in that regard.
The sophomore grabbed a career-high


18 rebounds to go along with 14 points.
Guard Depree Bowden was also
impressive, scoring 24 to go with 12
rebounds and a career-high six assists.
But Bowden also like her coach com-
plained about turned
it over 11 times.
Guard Sha Brooks
struggled for the sec-
ond-straight game,
extending her shooting
skid to just 4 for 26 in
those games.
Dotson and Brooks
also combined for 11 turnovers.
Things may look bleak, but Rebels
coach, and former UF coach, Carol Ross
said she believed that the Gators can be a
major program on the national level.

Willis hopes to contribute against No. 10 Auburn


ETHE JUNIOR IS NURSING
AN ACHILLES INJURY.


By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer
rrobins@alligator.org


Nicola Willis loves competing as
part of the No. 1 gymnastics team
- when she gets the chance.
These days it's harder for her to
do tlat.
With five new gymnasts hungry
to get into the lineup, Willis is fight-
ing for a spot.
The junior will continue her
climb Friday at 7 p.m. when UF (7-
0-1, 1-0-1 Southeastern Conference)
faces No. 10 Auburn (4-2,1-1 SEC) at


the O'Connell Center.
Competing is not getting any
easier for the Olympian, who rep-
resented Great Britain in the 2004
games. She is currently nursing an
Achilles tendon injury and sported
a boot Wednesday.
"You're always fighting for your
spot," Willis said. "They're great
gymnasts, and every year more
great gymnasts come in. Every year,
the fight for the spot makes you
stronger and more determined. I
think its a really good thing for our
team."
In last week's tie against Georgia
she saw limited action due to the
injury. UF coach Rhonda Faehn
called Willis one of her best options
on floor exercise but decided not to


"Every year, the fight for
the spot makes you stron-
ger and more determined.
I think it's a really good
thing for our team."

use the junior in the event against
the No. 2 Bulldogs.
Redshirt freshman Melanie
Sinclair replaced Willis and scored
a 9.875. Willis and Rebekah Zaiser
were pulled from the vault squad,
and their replacements, Sinclair and
senior Savannah Evans, scored 9.875
and 9.85, respectively.


Willis scored a 9.7 inher last vault
against Alabama. In her only action
against Georgia, Willis competed on
uneven bars and scored a 9.85.
"I compete if it feels good," Willis
said. "Basically, it was just a meet
that I could rest. There were a lot of
people that could compete in that
competition and do really well."
Last year's meet at Auburn
turned into a nail biter with the
Gators pulling out a 196-195.725
victory.
At home, Faehn will likely call on
her best to save some worries.
She said Sinclair wants to add
difficulty to her vault routine but
has toned down her performance
because of her recovery from a torn
ACL. Faehn might let Sinclair take


the challenge against the Tigers.
That doesn't help Willis' chanc-
es.

URBAN BACKING: Before the Gators
meet against the Bulldogs, UF foot-
ball coach Urban Meyer and his wife
Shelley sent the team a text message
wishing them good luck against the
SEC rival.
They told the latest No. 1 UF
team to "stick it."
Meyer has yet to attend a Gators
gymnastics meet this season but
watched UF defeat his former team,
Utah, last year at the O'Connell
Center.
Shelley has kept up with the
team, requesting updates to be text
messaged to her during the meets.


UF DIVING

Four Gators divers jump into SEC Championships pool


By SCOTT ROSEN
Alligator Writer

After closing the regular season strong,
a handful of UF divers are headed to the
Southeastern Conference Championships
this weekend.
Kentucky hosts the swimming and diving
meet captured last year by Auburn's men
and Georgia's women. UF's men will be rep-
resented by sophomore Jonathan Wilcox and
senior Justin Schmidt.
Sophomore Whitney Stem and freshman
Jennifer Funch will represent the women.
"We've got a very competitive pair repre-
senting Florida at the conference champion-
ships, and if Whitney and Jennifer dive the
way I know they're capable of, then I have no


doubt they'll make it into the finals," UF div-
ing coach Donnie Craine said.
Stem collected five wins this season, in-
cluding a career-high score of 315.83 on the
three-meter dive. Funch earned the team's
top score on the 1M board, 269.4, in the sea-
son finale against Florida Atlantic.
"Whitney has come a long way since
the start pf her freshman year," Craine said.
"She's become a lot more consistent dur-
ing her college career, and she has certainly
become the team's leader on the 3 meter.
Jennifer has also improved on all of her
dives, and she's someone that I see progress-
ing more and more during her future years
at Florida."
For the men's team, Wilcox-won a com-
bined 13 events this season, taking first place


eight times on the 1M board.
Schmidt has the season's best scores on
both the 1M and the 3M dives.
"Last weekend we fi-
nally stepped up and dove
well," Craine said. "Both
of these guys are capable
of making the finals in all
three events. If we improve
a little bit over how we
dove last weekend, well
wilcox have a productive confer-
ence meet."
Wilcox finished the regular season as
SEC Diver of the Week and brought home
two All-SEC honors at last year's SEC
Championships.
"Jonathan is a great acrobat and he's very


pretty in the air," Craine said. "He can miss
a dive here and there because his degree of
difficulty is so high that it makes up for his
mistake."

UF TO FACE FURMAN, BAYLOR: The UF men's
tennis team got some much needed experi-
ence and confidence in Wednesday after-
noon's 5-2 victory against Central Florida.
The Gators will look to capitalize on the
performance coming into a tough weekend
when they host Furman and Baylor.
Although the No. 15 Gators (1-0) are 24-0
against Furman, UF coach Andy Jackson feels
that today's match will be an opportunity to
get over the hump. Freshman Jesse Levine,
