A call for a watch-group to watch the watch-groups.

Pro-Israeli McCarthy-ite group sets up new web site to blacklist pro-Arab/pro-Palestinian/pro-Muslim academic scholars.
Ok, we need a watch-group to watch the watch-groups. Are they all paid for by Israel and report to the Mossad? Check this out. Today a group called "The Middle East Forum" (quite deceptive this, it should be called the Israeli Forum)began their internet McCarthy-type blacklist against university faculty who dare to present pro-arab and pro-Palestinian scholarship. They call themselves a "think tank, who works to define and promote American interests in the Middle East. Founded in 1990 the Forum became an independent organization in 1994.
The Forum holds that the United States has vital interests in the region; in particular, it believes in strong ties with Israel, Turkey, and other democracies as they emerge; works for human rights throughout the region; seeks a stable supply and a low price of oil; and promotes the peaceful settlement of regional and international disputes."

It's time to put more of the truth up at Indy about the history of watch-groups. Who they work for, who funds them, who benefits?

Pro-Israel Web Site To Monitor Views Of US Academia
By Daniel Golden

NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--A pro-Israel think tank plans to start an
Internet site Wednesday to monitor the attitudes of American
professors and universities toward Islamic fundamentalism and the
Arab-Israeli conflict.

To be launched by the Philadelphia-based Middle East Forum, will maintain what it calls "dossiers" on
professors and academic institutions and collect information from
students regarding their teachers' political opinions.

Forum director Daniel Pipes, and Martin Kramer, editor of the forum's
Middle East Quarterly, have been prominent critics of Middle East
studies as taught in U.S. universities. They contend that many
academics in the field are overly sympathetic to Islamic
fundamentalism and underestimated the threat of terrorism prior to
Sept. 11, 2001.

Institutions the site will focus on include the University of North
Carolina, where freshmen this year were required to read passages
from the Koran, and Harvard University, where a Muslim-American
student delivered a commencement address originally titled, "My
American Jihad."
