  • Each of us can — and should — reduce political polarization

    Annually, JSU hosts Israel Fest. This year’s event was disrupted by a protest orchestrating a “die in.” I am now taking this opportunity to voice to my perspective on what happened.

  • Misinformation harms progress of Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    Students for Peace and Justice in Palestine (SPJP) was featured on the Humans of Virginia Tech Facebook page. The main theme of the tabling demonstration covered in the post was to blame Israel for all Palestinian hardship without any room for competing dialogue. This post became a battleground for toxicity and name-calling and ultimately left no room for any type of discussion.
