  • Community Commentary: A devout Christian learns about Islam from Shadia

    I have always prided myself on being open-minded and fair, so it was with both surprise and shock that I read Mona Shadia's weekly column, "Unveiled: A Muslim Girl in O.C." I almost couldn't believe what I was reading: A Muslim telling me, a Christian,...
  • 10 of 'Irvine 11' guilty

    10 of 'Irvine 11' guilty
    SANTA ANA — An Orange County Superior Court jury on Friday convicted 10 of the so-called Irvine 11 on two misdemeanor charges to conspire and then disrupt a February 2010 speech by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren at UC Irvine. Charges against...
  • Mailbag: Irvine 11 coverage ignores Jewish viewpoint

    Why would you reprint most of the "Applauding the 'Irvine 11'" article from the Los Angeles Times on Sept. 27, 2011? The article already appeared, in its entirety, the previous day in the L.A. Times. Did you feel we hadn't gotten enough of the prejudice...
  • O.C. Muslims welcome Ramadan in year of uprisings

    Ramadan began Monday with special significance for Orange County Muslims, who celebrated the democratic tide washing over Egypt and Tunisia but also expressed concern for those who remain in peril in Syria, Libya and other Middle Eastern dictatorships....
  • Mailbag: Column on Islam refutes stereotypes

    I don't think I've ever written a letter to the editor before, but Sunday's Daily Pilot has motivated me now. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Mona Shadia's columns and learning more about the real face of Islam, not the stereotypes that we too often...
  • City Life: 'Irvine 11' went too far but so did prosecutor

    At the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, there are signs scattered throughout the venue reading, "Patrons disrupting the performance for others will be subject to removal from the theater." Many other venues throughout the region offer similar warnings. Get...
  • On Faith: It's time to think outside the box

    I tend to appeal to non-religious people. I often hear comments like, "I've never met a pastor like you" or "I didn't know a church like yours existed!" Honestly, I do not think that either I or Fairview is all that unique when it comes to pastors or...
  • Commentary: Readers should give Muslim column a chance

    Can't some of your readers get enough of bashing and trashing Muslim Americans? You have a seemingly innocuous columnist writing about her experience as a Muslim (Mona Shadia) and getting a full onslaught of hate mail from narrow-minded bigots, of...
  • Mailbag: Join the grass-roots effort to stop the charter

    There is a true grass-roots movement to oppose the proposed city charter by just-plain Costa Mesa folk who may want a charter but resent the way this one is being processed. It is truly a David vs. Goliath battle about principles over politics in...
  • Supporters of Irvine 11 gather after verdict

    The room was packed full of people who gathered to applaud an unlikely bunch: a group of men who had been convicted of misdemeanors less than 48 hours ago. The men — part of the Irvine 11 found guilty of disrupting a speech by Israeli Ambassador...
  • Commentary: Media allows religion to distort discourse

    After reading the Feb. 19 commentaries in the Daily Pilot titled "Obama wages war against Catholic Church" and "Readers should give Muslim column a chance," I am bewildered by the current lack of factual honesty in our public discourse. The first piece...
  • Mailbag: Traffic lights in Irvine out of sync

    Re "Irvine's PSA seeks to deter wrecks," Feb. 19: Irvine traffic signals are exquisitely asynchronous. They are impeccably interminable as eight lane directions (through and turn) languidly separately proceed, plus time delays. Drivers park in place or...
