Letter: Why the wall exists

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

I agree with Robert Azzi when he says that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, there are competing narratives (Sunday Monitor Forum, July 27). I also support the creation of a Palestinian state and am critical of the Israeli government’s actions that impede such a creation. And while I take issue with several of his assertions, I will address just one. Azzi asks me specifically what I call a land divided by … 2

Letter: Help us help the homeless

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

I hope everyone is enjoying this warm weather and has been able to get some extra time off to spend with family and loved ones. The Salvation Army/McKenna House has been very busy! We have had an increase in residents who are experiencing homelessness for the first time in need of our services. We serviced 54 people for the month of June and … 0

Letter: For women, battle isn’t over

Sunday, July 27, 2014

On July 22, with great celebration, Gov. Maggie Hassan signed the Paycheck Fairness Act into law. Though there are many who may believe that women have achieved equity in the workplace, there is much left to be done. Women make up more than 50 percent of the U.S. … 1

Letter: Palestinian propaganda

Sunday, July 27, 2014

The July 19 edition of the Monitor presented us with a political cartoon that was seriously unfunny and shockingly misleading. It posited the question: “Which is worse?”: Gazans using human shields or Israel hitting them. Let’s peruse the facts shall we? Israel accepted the Egyptian proposed cease-fire while … 0

Letter: The language of hate

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Of the many horrific images we’ve come to expect in the news media lately, there is one image that hurts my heart more than any. It is the image of “ordinary” citizens gathered together to blockade routes into their towns. From the faces contorted in anger and fear, … 0

Letter: Free Staters part of the New Hampshire tradition

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Regarding Matt Murray’s opinion piece titled “Don’t fall into trap set by Free Staters” (Monitor Forum, July 19), as any educated New Hampshire native would know, in their advocacy for limited and non-intrusive government, Free Staters are doing no more than espousing and acting upon the same ideas … 0

Sunday, July 27, 2014

I have many reasons to be a proud supporter of Kass Ardinger for state Senate. At the top of the list is my firm belief that we need more women fighting for women’s parity on all fronts, especially with regards to health care rights. As an activist and … 0

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Dan Feltes is devoted to those concerns that directly affect women and are, therefore, important to men and families. He’s the candidate who has been fighting passionately in the trenches and is the leader we need to champion important issues that will move us forward. As a state … 0

Katy Burns: In many ways, Market Basket saga is unique

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Last Wednesday around noon, a slightly rumpled man in cutoffs and a colorful shirt ambled over to the store employees who were manning a small table outside the Market Basket on Storrs Street. He addressed them earnestly, even … 8

My Turn: ‘Peace isn’t something simply to be desired. It follows from justice’

Sunday, July 27, 2014

In the Palestinian-Israeli conflict there are competing narratives. One land, two peoples, each with just claims. Each must choose whether to idolize their own narrative at the exclusion of the other or to acknowledge the other’s legitimacy and seek a path for justice and peace. Rabbi Robin Nafshi’s … 11

My Turn: The ghost and legend that ignited the First World War

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Tomorrow marks the 100th anniversary of Austria-Hungary’s declaration of war against Serbia, an action that would engulf Europe in a conflagration that turned the world upside down. All ignited by a ghost and a legend that culminated in … 3
