Joel Beinin (1948-) is a professor of Middle Eastern History at Stanford University. He is affiliated to MERIP, the publishers of Middle East Report.
He was one of those named on the Campus Watch website, which Prof. Beinin describes as follows:
Another effort to police dissent is focused on those who teach Middle East studies on college campuses. Middle East Forum, a think tank run by Daniel Pipes and supportive of the Israeli right wing, has established a Campus Watch website. After failing in his own pursuit of an academic career, Pipes has evidently decided to take revenge on the scholarly community that rejected him.
