Setting The Record Straight

Campus Watch corrects false allegations made against it.

Response to:

Academic Freedom under Political Duress: Israel
by Itzhak Galnoor
Social Research: An International Quarterly of the Social Sciences
Summer 2009

False allegations of attacking professors who criticize Israel
False allegations of suppressing free speech
False allegations of connections to other organizations

Campus Watch Responds:

Itzhak Galnoor, a professor of political science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, falsely alleges in a Summer 2009 article in the journal Social Research that the organization is connected to Campus Watch:

The website is part of the right-wing organization Campus Watch in the United States.

In fact, IAM is not part of Campus Watch, which is itself a project of the Middle East Forum in Philadelphia.

Moreover, CW is not a partisan, right-wing organization. We critique the academic discipline of Middle East studies in North America without regard for the political leanings of scholars and their scholarship, and we count among our supporters people from across the political spectrum.
