Lee Kaplan, Dafka Exposed -- Updated Edition

Since Lee Kaplan, Dafka Exposed was published on December 19, 2004, I have become aware of a factual error in the initial article. The original article states:

Though Kaplan didn't directly call for violence in the episodes, a little fact checking showed that groups he is associated with have been busy hijacking and illegally intruding on peaceful meetings, harassing peace activists and making at least one death threat.

- October 5, 2003. After participating in a debate at UC Berkeley on Middle East relations, activist Allison Weir received a death threat from an individual identifying himself with Dafka.

In the interest of fairness and accuracy, I retract the statements referring to Kaplan's associated groups as "making at least one death threat" and the portion of the the next paragraph which states "from an individual identifying himself with Dafka." This information was taken from a San Francisco Bay Guardian article (linked in the original article) and has since proven to be incorrect. Though the factual information regarding the time and circumstances of the death threat are correct, the death threat caller did not specifically identify himself with Dafka. At the time of my original article's publication, I did not know the information was incorrect and I regret its inclusion. The Bay Guardian has also issued a correction.

The following is a revised version of the original article, including new updated information and links. Read more to learn about Dafka, Protest Warrior, David Horowitz ; Students For Academic Freedom and Kaplan's links to Kahanism.
