"Ms. Weir filed a police report. THe Berkeley police have a copy of the recording. It was not Lee Kaplan's voice. It made No mention of Dafka or Lee Kaplan.

Yet Will Wallace continued to post without correction the outright lie."

Here, we have even more dis-information from Becky Johnson....

Becky, you just linked to this article! How incompetent are you???

On January 30, 2005, Will Wallace published: 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."
