Beinin Successfully Defends Libel Charge
Stanford Professor Joel Beinin just won a court victory against Los Angeles pro-Israel activist Rachel Neuwirth, who’d charged him with libel in a case related to this blog. Several years ago, Beinin wrote to me that Neuwirth had made a death threat against him, about which he was deposed in a separate case Neuwirth had filed against UCLA Hillel director Rabbi Chaim Seidler Feller. I reported that here, and Neuwirth then included Beinin in the libel action she brought against both of us.
Originally, both our cases were joined, but when they came to trial a few months ago the cases were divided. Beinin’s case was heard by a jury which found him not guilty of libel. Mazel tov, Joel. My case still awaits a decision from the judge who heard it.

Ah, yes, the nutty lady who called you up at night four years ago. Hasbarists can be such lovely people….
Congratulations Joel. In my opinion more people need to stand up to these bullies.
