LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Combatting false parallels

Re: "Supressing debate: Ontario's language politics" by Max Silverman (2.3.10) In his article, Max Silverman relies on two ad hominem arguments instead of critically analyzing the relevant issues. To me, and clearly the Ontario legislature, Peter Shurman's judgment of the event "Israeli Apartheid Week" was accurate.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fostering open dialogue.

Re: "Why Gaza Remembrance Week misses the point" by Adam Winer (26.1.10) Although Adam Winer's commentary concludes on a somewhat optimistic note - calling on us to have open dialogue and broaden our knowledge about the Arab-Israeli conflict - the manner in which he wrote his op-ed makes clear that he has yet to follow this important piece of advice.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: The weekly letter about Brendan’s column

Re: "Right Minded: An offensive motion" by Brendan Steven (09.02.10) Columnist Brendan Steven makes an argument that the upcoming (as of this letter) General Assembly motion on discriminatory groups constitutes a vote on freedom of speech. However, his analysis is significantly misguided.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: What a Winer

Re: "Why Gaza Remembrance Week misses the point" by Adam Winer (09.02.10) Mr. Winer seems to have entirely missed the point in believing that SPHR should be neutral in its display and presentation of speakers for the Gaza Remembrance event. When an entire population becomes the target of Israeli amunition and unjustified sanctions, then logically people have to stand up in defence of human rights and to lobby governments and intellectuals to stop the suffering of the Palestinian people.

I think the Financial Ethics Review Committee cares a lot about human rights, social justice, and environmental protection. I also think that the Israeli army and the Israeli government sometimes do things that are morally questionable, if not repugnant. However, I think that Wednesday's motion is not primarily a function of anybody's commitment to human rights, social justice, and environmental protection, but of condemning the State of Israel.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Bianca Van Babbles

Re: "Pop Rhetoric: Fist-pumping IQs away" by Bianca Van Bavel (02.02.10) Dear Bianca Van Bavel, I'm writing in response to your article on Jersey Shore, MTV's newest reality show. You seem to be upset that, as "young impressionable intellectuals," we (speaking on behalf of non-closet Shore fans) have decided to spend some of our free time being entertained.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Foucalt you, Ricky. Re: "Piñata Diplmacy: James McGill - Turning in my grave" by Ricky Kreitner (22.09.09) What up, James McGill, Michel Foucault here (also conveniently undead for the time being). I am writing to clear up certain misconceptions you seem to have regarding my personal area of expertise: cultural studies.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Opting out of Brendan’s column

Re: "Opting out of QPIRG" by Brendan Steven (26.1.10) If the groups conducting the QPIRG: Opt Out campaign would like to stay atop their high horses, they should request that students be able to opt out of funding their activities as well. My student fees support many opportunities of which I do not take advantage (e.
