Cinnamon Stillwell: N. CA Representative for Campus Watch

Having spent the last five years as a political columnist and more recently, a blogger, I've now decided to further my involvement in the battle of ideas. In particular, the one raging on American college campuses and most especially, Mideast studies. At this critical juncture in history, it's imperative that the next generation receive an accurate, unbiased education in this most crucial of subjects.

To that end, I'm happy to announce that starting April 1, I'll be the Northern California Representative for Campus Watch. Campus Watch is a program of the Middle East Forum, a think tank that aims to improve Middle East studies at North American universities through research and writing. Founded by Mideast scholar Daniel Pipes and based in Philadelphia, Campus Watch will be developing a presence on the West Coast and I'll be assisting those efforts.

As far as columns go, I'll be writing for Campus Watch and continuing to write for (once a month on a freelance basis) and Along with contributing to the Campus Watch blog, I plan on continuing to maintain my own blog.

The Middle East Forum press release regarding my appointment, and that of R. John Matthies as assistant director of Islamist Watch, is posted at the MEF website and appears below:

Many congratulations, dear friend and comrade (Heh.). This April Fool's Day the joke will be on jihadists and their American fellow-travellers. I'm proud of you and proud to know you.

I would like to nominate Peter Phillips and Project Censored of Sonoma State University as two of your first subjects of scrutiny.

This is good news, Cinnamon.

Congratulations, Cinnamon. However, it's SFGate's loss. They need you more than they understand.

Thanks, Boomer. But I'll still be writing for SFGate, if only once a month.

Cinnamon: You're a brave soul.

You know you're walking in the lions den with this assignment.

But I suppose someone who has dared to speak truth to delusionists in SF knows what they are up against and can take the heat.

Congratulations and good luck!

Congratulations Cinnamon! I am sure that Lefties and Jihadis view this with trepidation. The truth needs to be told.
