Miranda Schumes

November 19, 2013

Gas chambers, dead bodies and the tired faces of Holocaust survivors flashed across the screen as 7-year-old Kasim Hafeez watched the Holocaust episode of the 1973 documentary series, “The World at War.” Just moments later Hafeez heard his father say, “If only Hitler had finished the job off.” His parents’ beliefs soon turned into his own. H...

Letter to the Editor: “Nadine Aly’s Response to Mr. Devolin and all Israel Apologists”

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”....

Abraham Mercado

October 28, 2013

Dear Editor,   The issue printed on October 16, 2013 with the headline "FREE PIZZA, FREE PALESTINE", was appalling and insensitive. The hurtful actions committed by the group, Students for Justice in Palestine, and their hateful words have sadly been given a voice.

October 14, 2013

Dear Editor:   Owls for Israel and the Zionist population on campus strongly condemn the letter to the editor titled "Build Bridges Not Apartheid Walls" by suspended SJP President Nadine Aly, published on Friday, October 4th, 2013. Aly's one-sided view of the conflict and bias in her letter are inexplicable. She referred to the International...
