Student Group at OU reacts to a Senator's proposal 
Republican Senator John Kyl proposed an amendment Monday that would forbid federal money to Palestinian refugees to resettle from Gaza to the United States. Senator Kyl's  purpose for the amendment is out of fear that some refugees would ties to Hamas, a supposed terrorist group.

"It is discriminatory, it's outrageous," said Bekah Stone on Tuesday, president of Sooner for Peace in Palestine. "It honestly a disgust that some of our senators would be doing that."

Stone said that she sent messages through Facebook and email urging people to call their senators to ask them to shoot down the amendment. 

"I read an article that one call represents not just one person it represents 500 people," Stone said. "They actually voted on it last night and it was rejected. I'm sure he gonna try it again and try to sneak some other things in there."

Sooner for Peace in Palestine will be selling keffiyeh Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the OMU.
