(Daniel) Pipes vote fails to draw quorum
Edited on Thu Jul-24-03 09:38 AM by Tinoire
On edit: Pipes is the man behind "Campus Watch", an organization pushing Middle East McCarthyism where students can turn in fellow students and professors for having unpatriotic views or saying anything less than flattering about Israel and the conflict in the Middle East. (see ref 1)

Pipes vote fails to draw quorum
Jennifer Salan, Arab American Institute, 23 July 2003

----------------------------------------------------------------------Washington, DC -- Today after a contentious executive session of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on the nomination of Daniel Pipes to the board of the U.S. Institute for Peace, the Committee lost a working quorum. Based on an AAI initiative, organizations present agreed that they would send a joint letter to the White House asking that the President withdraw this nominee from consideration.

During the Committee's discussion of the Pipes nomination, it became clear that many of the Senators had questions and concerns regarding whether or not Pipes should serve on the Board of the United States Institute of Peace. The ranking Democratic member, Senator Edward Kennedy, noted his dismay regarding Pipes offensive and alarmist quotes about "brown-skinned" immigrants. Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT) agreed with Senator Kennedy and stated he was opposed to the Pipes nomination.

Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) recalled poignant stories from his childhood of his immigrant mother. He described her as a devout woman who took pride in her heritage but was fully American. Senator Harkin indicated that he saw no contradiction in one's being proud of their ethnicity or faith and being American. He added that Cedar Rapids is home to the oldest American mosque and that the community flourishes as an example of religious diversity and co-existence. Senator Harkin went on to express his reservations about Pipes questioning the "enfranchisement" rights and "affluence" of Muslims and called Pipes a "lightning rod".

ref 1:

A pro-Israel think tank plans to start an Internet site," according to a September 18 article in The Wall Street Journal, "to monitor the attitudes of American professors and universities toward Islamic fundamentalism and the Arab-Israeli conflict." ("Pro-Israel Web Site To Monitor Views Of US Academia")

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

<snip>

Pipes has effectively called for entire Muslim populations to be treated as "barbarians," and as "potential killers." In a 22 October 2001 column in National Review Online, Pipes declared that "fully one quarter of the populations in Pakistan and the Palestinian Authority," as well as the Saudi royal family, among many millions of other Muslims, fit his definition of "fundamentalists." As a consequence, Pipes states:
"To me, every fundamentalist Muslim, no matter how peaceable in his own behavior, is part of a murderous movement and is thus, in some fashion, a foot soldier in the war that bin Laden has launched against civilization....For this reason, I have written about the fundamentalists, "Many of them are peaceable in appearance, but they all must be considered potential killers." By way of comparison, I would say precisely the same about Nazis and Leninists; however non-violently they might conduct their own lives, the fact that they back a barbaric force means they too are barbarians and must be treated as such."

3. Before I knew who he was I thought Pipes was of Arab descent.
While you would not think so by his affiliations is he?

6. Richard Pipes?
This is the first I hear of him. Thank you! The dot connections between these neo-cons just get more and more interesting. These guys just need a bogey-man at all costs since all of them were on the 'Demonize the Soviets" band-wagon in the past.

Thanks for that tidbit!

9. Pipes is definitely Anti-Muslim
as is this administration. Which surprised me as again he looks to be an Arab I will have to take a look at the sheepskin on his dad.

This horse Daniel is riding harkens back to that Santorium Legislation. The cultural diversity agenda. Looks like they are coming in the back door on this. I haven't followed up on the "cultural diversity" legislation which would enable them to go after academia's dissidents.

They just keep trucking along don't they?

7. Wow. Just found a sample of some of the reports
Edited on Thu Jul-24-03 10:14 AM by Tinoire
This program is really disturbing. I can't believe it's still up and harrassing professors and students who don't share Daniel Pipes' views. Here's one report I found and I can't believe hlow ludicrous this is. Seems they maintain "dossiers" on members of academia who suddenly staqrt getting harrassed. This is a crying shame! Shame, shame, shame on you Daniel Pipes and ANYONE supporting this program!

Report 3:

"Today in my sociology class Professor Nick Johnson said that there are 'two-sides to every issue, including the Israel-Palestinian conflict.' This rejects the position of the government and most reasonable Americans, who know there is only one-side, Israel's, and it is the right one. I did a search for Professor Johnson in Google and found a letter to the editor he published in the Boise Daily Bugle in 1997. He wrote that 'the Arabs have a long and proud history.' These disturbingly anti-Israeli statements must be reported.

(edited by me), Boise State University"

8. Ahh CAMPUS-WATCH...
Two names to conjure with in this whole debacle

Daniel Pipes and Martin Kramer...

Campus-watch is one of the more vile sites out there in terms of academia. That is supported by so many is a testament to the low level of intellectual discourse in the country at the moment.

I have had a few professors/acquaintance who have been tainted by witch-hunt. Some get the typical... spam e-mail, veiled and unveiled threats etc. Lovely stuff.

There are many w/i the field who have actually asked to be *put on* the list in a show of defiance...if I remember correctly their names are listed too.

Me, I prefer to make it on the list, as well as my university, the old fashioned way...I earn my place :evilgrin:
I remain objective in the classroom although I have a number of students who feel I am 100% wrong, etc. I may just be a matter of time.

I am sure Pipes and Kramer will make a field day of this.

BTW--if any of you would like to hear a response of sorts to campus-watch and Kramer's attack on the field in general...an ex-president of MESA gave a fascinating speech a year or so back at the MESA convention...(It's a bit long--but to the point--it was magic to be there and feel the emotions crackling in the room)

10. Ahhh yes they want to keep Pro-Arab TRUISMS from seeing the light of day!
Campus Watch,Indeed. Some snips from this article you placed Malikshah.

snip

"However, September 11 was not the first time in recent history that Americans have been shocked and surprised by Middle East-related events. The lesson that what the United States does and does not do in the Middle East can have severe consequences for our people and our interests could and should have been learned some time ago. It was not. Hence, it is far from certain that we will draw the appropriate conclusions from the pain and distress we experienced on September 11."

snip

At a press conference in February 1980 an exceptionally bold reporter asked President Jimmy Carter if the CIAs restoration of the Shah to power in 1953 might have something to do with arousing the Iranian anti-American sentiment that expressed itself in the hostage crisis. Carter replied that this was "ancient history" and that it was not "appropriate or helpful" to discuss it. Such willful historical amnesia, which is so deeply rooted in American culture and politics, enables assertions like "everything has changed."

snip

One thread of this story leads, a few years later, to Israels invasion of Lebanon in the summer of 1982. Ariel Sharon, then Israels Minister of Defense, was the godfather of the strategy of invading Lebanon to destroy Palestinian national sentiment and pave the way for Israels annexation of the West Bank. U.S. Secretary of State Alexander Haig hoped that this adventure would contribute to building an anti-Soviet strategic consensus in the Middle East, a miscalculation which was one of the factors that led to his resignation. After receiving a "green light" from the Reagan administration, Israel fabricated a pretext for launching its invasion.

The hostilities were concluded with an agreement that the PLO would evacuate its fighters from Lebanon while the United States would guarantee the security of the Palestinian civilians left behind. Between September 16 and 18 Maronite Phalangists commanded by Elie Hobeika raped, tortured, and murdered between 700 and 3,500 unarmed Palestinians in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps under the eyes of Israeli forces who had occupied Beirut.

snip
The failure of the United States to honor its promise to protect the Palestinians and its alliance with Israel provoked anti-American sentiments among some Lebanese and Palestinians, which were manifested in attacks on U.S. forces when they returned to Lebanon after the Sabra and Shatila massacre. US naval vessels off the coast of the Shuf briefly participated in the Lebanese civil war in support of the Phalange. Meanwhile Israel, which had been for several years an active ally of the Phalange, still occupied a large portion of Lebanon. In April 1983 a car bomb at the U.S. embassy in Beirut exploded killing 63 people, including 17 Americans. Another car bomb at the U.S. marine barracks in Beirut in October killed 241 marines, the largest number of casualties suffered by U.S. armed forces since the Vietnam War.

---------------

This is an excellent overview specific to many of the causal factors which all too clearly explain what is perajoratively called "the Arab aggression" like it somehow is unrelated to anything but genetics or militant islamists, and exists for no good reason, but that they hate Israel and the US.

I haven't finished the article, but I would classify it as a MUST READER as well as A KEEPER!

THANKS FOR PLACING IT HERE.

11. Thanks
:)

No problem-- I wouldn't refer to it as "Pro-Arab" per se--rather "anti-ignorance" The field of which Beinin speaks deals with Arabs, Jews, Persians, Turks, Muslims, Christians etc. In other words, the region is as diverse as any.

Folks in office need to read this speech--maybe, just maybe they'll get their heads out of the collective ass and realize that terrorism is just a symptom. Any good doctor knows that if you just treat the symptom with out finding its cause, it will only reappear.

And no, Islam is not the cause--to say so is to be ignorant of 1400 years of history and to join with the bigoted brigade. :o

13. I thought as I hit send
Edited on Thu Jul-24-03 11:41 AM by Wonder
pro - arab was not the exact or correct way of phrasing it. I always saw terrorism as a symptom. Was not the one calling for revenge on 9/11. It was clear than, even clearer now, since familiarizing myself with the history; terrorism was not the main cause but the effect.

Long time the colonialists, the imperalists, and the expansions have had no real interest in meeting "the Arabs" at eye level. Regardless of the anti-arab propaganda prodding the stampede of ignorance. And I am no scholar by a long shot. All it takes to see it is some of that good ole free thinking they'd much prefer to hamper by way of tactical mind control.

Proper terminology is always important. Thanks for the correction.

14. Sorry bout the tone
I didn't mean it to sound like a correction--rather a clarification.

hopefully folks will spread the word about campus-watch, Joel Beinin's speech at MESA etc. to continue the debate and raise the important issues

12. good GAWD I just visited campus-watch.org...
...and I'm spitting mad! This is a bald-faced attack on academic freedom on and intellectual diversity. Unfortunately, I was disappointed to NOT see my university on the (admittedly still under construction) list of institutions from which they have received reports about "anti-americanism" and "anti-government" professors. My colleagues and I will have to redouble our efforts to open our students eyes to the injustices committed in their names!

The "Profs who Hate America" report was especially enlightening because it relies so heavily on Iraq's nuclear threat to America. You'd think they'd be embarrassed to keep that turkey up....

16. bald-faced attack on academic freedom on and intellectual diversity
that was made clear back when that Santorum legislation emerged, when many insisted it was no big thing, and if enacted only meant to address anti-semitic hate incidence on campus. On the other side of the coin it was obvious that in doing so the more sinister result would indeed be this attack on academic freedom and an all out witch hunt for any dissidents this campus watch would much prefer have gagged.

I am not sure what has happened to that Santorum legislation but it seems without it campus watch under this well meaning guise of watching out for hate incidence have found there way around the legislation itself. This was always it's main intent however much it was denied.

18. They have a "Solidarity with Apologists" for suicide bombings page!!!!!
How the HELL did someone as HATEFUL as this even get nominated for a position on the board of the U.S. Institute for Peace!! This man is PURE slime! 1930s Germany ALL over again!


Solidarity with Apologists
Following the launch of Campus Watch on September 18, 2002, this site received about 200 e-mails from faculty and graduate students requesting to be listed on www.campus-watch.org in solidarity with academics we identified as apologists for suicide bombings and militant Islam listed on this site. (For more, see the New York Times article).

Most of the writers are academics from fields other than Middle East studies (and so are not qualified to judge the work of the academics we listed) and few of them addressed the concerns and problems listed by Campus Watch on its homepage. Still, the fact that these individuals insist on declaring solidarity in public with academics that Campus Watch has identified as apologists for Palestinian and Islamist violence is important information for university stakeholders to be aware of, so we are posting their names, in compliance with their wishes:

19. They have a "Solidarity with Apologists" for suicide bombings page!!!!!
How the HELL did someone as HATEFUL as this even get nominated for a position on the board of the U.S. Institute for Peace!! This man is PURE slime! 1930s Germany ALL over again!


Solidarity with Apologists
Following the launch of Campus Watch on September 18, 2002, this site received about 200 e-mails from faculty and graduate students requesting to be listed on www.campus-watch.org in solidarity with academics we identified as apologists for suicide bombings and militant Islam listed on this site. (For more, see the New York Times article).

Most of the writers are academics from fields other than Middle East studies (and so are not qualified to judge the work of the academics we listed) and few of them addressed the concerns and problems listed by Campus Watch on its homepage. Still, the fact that these individuals insist on declaring solidarity in public with academics that Campus Watch has identified as apologists for Palestinian and Islamist violence is important information for university stakeholders to be aware of, so we are posting their names, in compliance with their wishes:
