A day prior, two suicide bombers attacked a southern suburb... 

Let’s remember all victims of terror

Let’s remember all victims of terror
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff While the world expressed its solidarity with France after the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris, in which 129 people were killed and more than 350 injured, another tragedy that happened just one day before went mostly unnoticed in the West and was overshadowed by the vast media coverage of the Paris attacks. More than 40 people were killed and another 239 were wounded Nov.... 

‘Slacktivism’ is ineffective

In response to the bombings and mass shootings Nov. 13 in Paris, Facebook created a profile picture filter which resembles the France flag to support the country. But how does this filter actually support a terrorized country? Although the filter spreads awareness to people who may not have heard about the tragedy, nothing else happens. Little difference is made. This simply becomes a trend on social... 

Stop the spread of Islamophobia

With the outpouring of support for Muslims on social media, you would think that the overall anti-Muslim sentiment would not be as harsh, but hate crimes have already begun to dominate local media reports in North America and Europe in wake of the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris. Stand Up To Racism organizer Sabby Dhalu said, “Too often the response to such attacks is to hold responsible and scapegoat all... 

United States must help Syrian refugees

Refugees are fleeing Syria’s brutal civil war by the millions, creating one of the world’s biggest refugee crises since World War II. The United States has pledged to help those who have been displaced, but it is not nearly enough. Since the start of the war in 2011, the United States has taken in only 1,500 refugees. Recently, President Barack Obama has committed to accepting 10,000 more over...

Syria vigil pushes for peace

Julian Burrell Staff Writer Sudden stormy weather on the evening of what had been a bright summer day was not enough to keep nearly 80 local protesters off of the corner of Foothill and Indian Hill Boulevard in Claremont on Monday. Those present had assembled in protest of the expected Congressional decision to send the U.S. military into Syria as a response to their armies use of chemical weapons... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a life-long resident of La Verne, I have always loved the progressive heart shown by the University of La Verne. On the occasion of the starting of a new school year, I would like to challenge the students and faculty of the University to become involved in two causes: 1. We are trying to start a Veterans’ Center on campus; the way Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are being treated... 

Muslims defend their jihad

Since the World Trade Center towers fell in 2001, almost anything having to do with Islam or the Muslim culture has become an automatic “go-to” for blame. Nervous Americans have turned terms used by Muslims into synonyms for “terrorism.” The question that has to be asked is how is the Muslim community reacting to these anti-Islamic extremists? Last year a campaign known as MyJihad was launched... 

Targeted killings miss the mark

In the past four years, 326 reported U.S. drone strikes have occurred within Pakistan with an estimated 1,707 to 3,025 deaths – more than 400 of them reported to be civilian bystanders. All of this within a country that the United States is not at war with. Under President Barack Obama’s administration, the use of unmanned, combat air vehicles, or drones, armed with missiles and surveillance...
