Any person who respects the autonomy of Jewish statehood in Israel and believes in the validity of the 1967 unification of Jerusalem should be sincerely apprehensive of President Donald Trump’s decision today to officially recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.
America has been at war for most of its existence. Our predecessors fought wars all over the planet, and our generation is no different. Many of us are too young to remember the start of our ongoing involvement in the Middle East, but we’ve certainly grown up with it constantly playing in the background. I am too young to remember well an America at peace, but with Iraq “finished” and Afghanistan drawing to a close, that prospect appears to be returning. Or so it would seem.
Ali Muhammed Brown, who confessed to killing rising sophomore Brendan Tevlin on June 25, recently stated that Tevlin’s murder was part of a vengeance mission for American military presence in the Middle East.
Rochelle Davis, academic director of the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University, will be on campus Wednesday to discuss the struggles of displaced Syrians and what it means to be a refugee in the volatile Middle East.

I know people say that Facebook diminishes actual face-to-face social relationships. It makes it easier for that creepy guy in your Chem class to flirt with you without ever having to say a word in person. It enables you to create a cyber image of yourself as a 23-year-old blonde from California when in actuality you're a 46-year-old man who's never left his basement in Nebraska. It keeps you glued to a computer screen for hours, looking up pages of lyrics to find the cutest one that will get the most "likes" as your status.
Author Susan Muaddi Darraj presented "Honor Killings, Veiled Women, and Miss USA: The Road Ahead for Arab Feminism," Thursday evening in the Westhampton College Living Room, where about 100 people gathered to hear the talk about the rights and status of Muslim women in the modern age.
As I will be attending the University of Richmond in the fall as a freshman, I decided to look at the school newspaper, The Collegian. I was hoping to see more about politics and economics, but the paper is largely dedicated to the current happenings of the school. One article that stood out to me, however, was "Iran Threatens World Peace."
This week, while President Obama announces a major change in American national security strategy, a situation halfway around the world is rapidly reaching the point of no return: The Islamic Republic of Iran is racing down the home stretch towards acquiring the nuclear weapons with which they wish to dominate the Middle East.
This week, we witnessed President Obama's shameful treatment of the leader of one of America's closest allies. This became clear when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was hauled before a "seething" Obama and read the Riot Act behind closed doors. Netanyahu was rudely dismissed and the press was not allowed to photograph even a single handshake between the two men.

In the early 16th century, a young Italian patriot sat nightly in his study, reading and writing with a missionary fervor. The wisdom of the ancients and his pen soothed the persistent mental torture he felt while watching his precious Italia ravaged by foreign armies and domestic discord. His name was Niccolo Machiavelli. The product of those nights, "The Prince," is the indispensable guide for anyone interested in gaining and holding power. It was also a call for a man to take power and unite Italy for the sake of its humiliated people.
