I am very offended by the article “How possible is it to bring peace in the Middle East?” in the Dec. 7 issue. It guises behind the banner of peace, yet in reality is a virulent article calling for the destruction of the state of Israel. This can be seen in the statement “Israel cannot be serious about peace while they are occupying Palestine most of the West bank and the Gaza Strip.” And where is Palestine? Are you meaning that entire region which was called Palestine under the British mandate? So where do you suppose Israel should go? Into the Mediterranean? As of July 2004 the Gaza Strip has been under Palestinian dominion, get your facts straight. And if you are so concerned about human rights for Arabs and Muslims please mention the situation in Sudan.

It is nice to know that there are people who will protect your home against mother nature. Fires have taken my mother’s home before and they have threatened my home more than once. I just wanted to thank all the Moorpark firemen who bravely fought to protect our homes.

Domestic violence is a serious issue and that is why
it’s nice to see girl power empowering other women.
The article “Women’s center hosts empowering events”
is promoting upcoming events for the Women’s Resource
and Research Center. This center helps all women who
are victims of domestic violence by guiding them and
informing them how to overcome their situations. Until
I read this article I was not aware that CSUN offered
these kinds of services and I was also not aware of
the center’s location. Domestic violence is high in
today’s society; that is why it is necessary for women
to get help, support and most importantly to empower
each other with the right messages.

I am responding to the article “How possible is it to
bring peace in the Middle East?” I am responding to
its blatant bias of the article. It is rabidly
anti-Israel and cares very little about the terror
group known as Hezbollah using Lebanese civilians
and civilian structures as shields during the recent
conflict. What about the human rights violations of
Hezbollah? What about the permament human rights
violations of Hezbollah operatives teaching Lebanese
children to enjoy seeing rockets heading toward
As for the rise of terrorism, wouldn’t having the U.S.
leave the regions of Iraq and Afghanistan encourage
more terrorists to come in like Somalia? Like how the
Somalian Islamic Courts are imposing ruthless
authoritarian laws stating that anyone who doesn’t
believe their whim gets beheaded? Would any rational
person want Iraq and Afghanistan to end up like that?
Hopefully not. But alas, the astounding ignorance of
this paper might unfortnately say otherwise.
And what’s more the author of this article doesn’t
seem to notify how Hezbollah doesn’t want to see
Israel to exist consider the Hezbollah leader-Hassan
“I am against any reconciliation with Israel. I do not
even recognize the presence of a state that is called
‘Israel.’ I consider its presence both unjust and
Along with identifying the U.S. as his ultimate
“It is our pride that the Great Satan (U.S.) and the
head of despotism, corruption and arrogance in modern
times considers us as an enemy that should be listed
in the terrorism list.”
So what about Hezbollah committing human rights
violations which would enable its successor
recruitment drive? What do these quotes by the
Hezbollah leader tell about its true agenda? It just
simply really exposes the astounding ignorance of this
paper and its rabid anti-Israel bias.
