YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS stands up to libel thuggery on behalf of an “Islamic charity” that came off rather badly in Matthew Levitt’s Hamas: Politics, Charity, and Terrorism in the Service of Jihad. Now maybe somebody should take a closer look at “KinderUSA,” which brought the suit.

UPDATE: Bravo for the American Library Association. Nice to see some backbone, though the Middle Eastern Studies Association isn’t looking so good.

MORE: In the comments section on the Levitt book, above, we’re starting to see 911-denialist posts like “Twin Towers not knocked down by aircraft.” Sigh.
