Never on Friday: Force right response for terror

Last week The Hatchet received a slew of letters regarding retaliation for the terrorist attacks at The World Trade Center and the Pentagon. But not one outlined reasons why America should strike back with force. Arguments for diplomacy are not realistic for what we face. We should use force against governments that brutally repress women […]

Op-Ed: Follow past examples, use military

Many people on this campus are not being honest with themselves regarding how we should address the heinous attacks that transpired Sept 11. Fanatics who twisted and perverted the tenets of Islam for atrocious purposes slaughtered thousands of innocent civilians. And yet a substantial portion of this campus ignores that on Sept. 11 one of […]

Militant Islamic group recruits on British campus

Posted 1:45 p.m. Sept. 26 MANCHESTER, ENGLAND – The Islamic extremist group Al-Muhajiroun took its message to the streets in one of England’s largest student centers during freshman orientation week in an effort to recruit followers and argue a message with sexist, racist and homophobic connotations.

Unity key after attacks

While I respect the views of all Americans, if anyone had truly read Bill Eldridge’s editorial (” Wrong to protest retaliation for terror,” Sept. 17, p. 5), they would have seen that he did not advocate violence. Regardless whether he believed our country should or should not be engaging in military activity, he wrote Americans […]

‘Crossfire’ returns for another week

“Crossfire” co-hosts Tucker Carlson and Bill Press engaged the GW student body in friendly banter to warm up for a live broadcast from campus Thursday. Citing packed audiences, a Hatchet article and intelligent questions from the students as reasons to keep up the new town hall meeting format, they announced the show would call GW […]

Letter to the Editor: Remembering a friend

On the morning of Sept. 11, Andrew Stergiopoulos was brutally taken from us. Sterg, as he was known to most of his friends, was a lot like you and me. We met while we were both at GW. He was a smart guy with a quick wit and a rare talent. He was able to […]

Sikh students fear religious attacks

Students who practice the Sikh religion said while the GW campus has provided a diverse and tolerant environment, they are faced with ignorance and prejudice off campus. “We are lucky that we go to an internationally-diverse university,” junior Amrith Mago said. “It has a huge difference on how open-minded the students are.” Sophomore Ravjot Singh, […]

Letter to the Editor: Family matters

Thank you for covering the Attila Cosby trial and providing access to it online. I reside in Philadelphia and at times was not able to get news coverage of it. I also write to inform you that you have only mentioned one aspect of Cosby’s family in the article “Ruling stuns Cosby family, supporters” (Sept. […]
