Berkeley students must tweet on Islamophobia
by Tarek Fatah
In 2002, when Prof. Daniel Pipes launched his "Campus Watch" initiative to monitor "the mixing of politics with scholarship" on American universities with regard to the Mideast, he was condemned as engaging in "McCarthyesque" intimidation.
His initiative was derided as a "war on academic freedom." One Islamist group labelled Pipes the "grandfather of Islamophobes".
However, 12 years after Pipes first raised the flag of Islamist penetration of U.S. universities, it appears the scholar of Islam, with a dozen books to his credit, was right to be concerned.
