A report on Canary Mission, a secretive and non-academic political organization that uses their website to engage in defamatory attacks against college students, academics and others who report on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and advocate for Palestinian rights.



Its campaign of vilification should alarm educators who value academic freedom and free speech rights in their classrooms and on their campuses, along with deans and other university leaders whose job it is to ensure the safety and well-being of their students and to help them secure decent jobs after graduation. The Middle East Studies Association's Committee on Academic Freedom, which strives to combat threats to and violations of academic freedom in North America as well as in the Middle East and North Africa, believes that educating U.S. college and university leaders, faculty and students about Canary Mission's goals, methods and impact is an urgent priority.
