Dear President Jones and Dean Mitzel,

We received your letter by accident. It was sent to one of us after it 
was sent off to the American Studies Association (ASA). No announcement 
was made to the faculty prior to the letter going out, and so no 
discussion was permitted. The letter–which is below–condemns the ASA for 
its resolution on Israel. It is also found on the website of the 
Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, as part 
of a campaign by that body to undermine the ASA.

Many of us who are signing this letter are members of the ASA, proudly 
so, and several of us voted on behalf of that resolution that you chose 
to condemn in your letter. We believe that your letter is wrong-headed 
for several reasons.
