Nadine Aly

November 12, 2013

In addressing Mr. Devolin’s letter to the editor one must first emphasize that it is not only illogical but quite absurd. For those that don’t see it, allow me to point it out. To start off, it has become common practice for Israel apologists to label any individual that criticizes Israel’s discriminatory policies towards Palestinians as “anti-Semitic”....

Letter to the Editor: “SJP’s response to Mr. Mercado”

Students for Justice in Palestine at Florida Atlantic University

November 12, 2013

Mr. Abraham Mercado’s Letter to the Editor regarding the headline “Free Pizza, Free Palestine” is not only filled with inaccuracy but also inflammatory language. It shows an evident bias and misunderstanding of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and our actions as a human rights organization. For a film student, he also seems to misunderstand...
