Setting The Record Straight

Campus Watch corrects false allegations made against it.

Response to:

McCarthyism Comes to Europe and the Levant: The Zionist Targeting of Dr. Ibrahim Mousawi
by Franklin P. Lamb & Ann El Koury
Atlantic Free Press
January 20, 2008

False allegations of attacking professors who criticize Israel
False allegations of suppressing free speech
Falsely alleged connection to David Horowitz
False allegations of attacking critics of America's policy in the Middle East
False allegations of being a Zionist organization

Campus Watch Responds:

This article alleges that Campus Watch coordinates with other organizations campaigns "that validate the Likudnik-Zionist doctrinal framing of the Middle East."

This is false: Campus Watch does not seek to validate anything beyond rigorous scholarship, and we act completely alone without any coordination with any other group. I invite the authors of this study to present evidence that CW has, at any time, launched or taken part in a coordinated campaign.

Similarly, the charge that Campus Watch was behind "the so-called Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week (IFAW) from October 22-26" is false. Campus Watch had no connection to this effort, which was in fact the work of David Horowitz. Campus Watch has no connection to his organization.
