Campus Issues

Error (i24 News, 8/21/16): The [Maccabee] task force funded a campaign called "Stop the Jew Hatred on Campus" this year, which was launched by the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles and included hanging up posters on UC campuses listing "Jew haters" at the school -- a move condemned by some Jewish student groups.

Correction (8/31/16): The Maccabee Task Force denied any connection to the controversial posters, telling the Guardian that while it had approved a "modest grant" to the Horowitz Freedom Center "to focus on the true nature of pro-BDS organizations" its funding was not used in support of this particular campaign.

"The Maccabee Task Force does not believe that focusing on student activists who conduct themselves civilly is an appropriate or effective way to combat the BDS movement on campus," Maccabee Task Force executive director David Brog said. …
Editor's note: A previous version of this article stated that the Macabee [sic] Task Force provided funding for the "Stop the Jew Hatred on Campus" poster campaign. This article was amended on August 31 following a statement from the Macabee group clarifying that while it had approved a "modest grant" to the Horowitz Freedom Center, its funds were not used in support of the poster campaign.

Error (Philadelphia Inquirer, Thomas Ginsberg, 8/13/03): [Daniel] Pipes also launched an organization after Sept. 11 called Campus Watch that collects complaints against college professors deemed to be biased in favor of Islam, Muslims and Palestinians.

Correction (8/15/03): An article in Wednesday’s Inquirer incorrectly described the work of the organization Campus Watch, created by Daniel Pipes and the Middle East Forum. Campus Watch says it critiques Middle East studies programs, focusing on problems that include the mixing of politics with scholarship, intolerance of alternative views, apologetics, and the abuse of power over students.
