Alexander H. Joffe is Director for Research at The David Project, a right-wing Zionist outfit. An article by him, published when he was working for Campus Watch (a Zionist outfit which speacializes in trying to intimidate non-Zionist scholars of the Middle East), appears to have been the first effort in the campaign to deny Nadia Abu El-Haj tenure at Barnard College, part of Columbia University.

Joffe did his PhD research under another right-winger, William G. Dever. His has worked for a variety of think tanks and policy organizations including the Middle East Forum (which is run by Daniel Pipes) and Global Policy Exchange. An archaeologist and historian, Mr. Joffe has participated in over a dozen archaeological projects in Israel, Jordan, Greece and the U.S., including excavations at major biblical-period sites such as Megiddo. From 1993 to 2000, Joffe taught in the Department of Anthropology at Pennsylvania State University and more recently at Purchase College, State University of New York. No longer having an academic post, he has written that "I am glad to no longer be wasting my time in that area".
