False allegations of being a Zionist organization

Campus Watch Responds:

Franklin Lamb asserts erroneously in "Campus Watch Ups the Ante," a sub-section of a much longer article, that the Zionist Freedom Alliance (ZFA) "is a spin-off of Campus Watch." This is simply untrue. I am director of Campus Watch, and I had never heard of the ZFA, much less orchestrated its birth. Here is the text:

In an act of defiance against U.S. President Barack Obama's insistence on the removal of illegal colonial outposts, a group of Jewish students from the United States spent last week working to develop them and declaring that henceforth the fight to save the settlements would be waged by Americans. A new organization called the Zionist Freedom Alliance (ZFA) with claims branches on half a dozen US colleges campuses hopes to grow into a mainstream program for US Jewish students is a spin-off of Campus Watch with seed money arranged by AIPAC.
