‘Professors’ Author Sued By Professor

David Horowitz, author of "The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America," is the target of a Stanford professor’s law suit.

The Associated Press reports that Joel Beinin, a Middle East history professor, is "identified on a book cover as a terrorism supporter" and "is suing the book’s publisher for illegally using his picture."

According to the article, Beinin says he was “unfairly targeted for his criticism of U.S. foreign policy."

The book in question is "Campus Support for Terrorism" co-authored by Horowitz and a read that "identifies liberal professors believed to be promoting anti-American agendas in their classes," the AP reports.

Beinin’s picture is apparently one of four seen on the book’s cover.
 
"They have used my picture as part of their war on free expression," Beinin said. "I have never, in any way, supported terrorism. I’ve spoken out against it. They’re trying to intimidate people into silence."

However, Horowitz says, "I didn’t say he was a terrorist. I said he supported terrorism. It is my view. If he doesn’t like it, he can respond anytime he wants, instead of playing legal games."
