On September 5, 2003 the Forward reported that "former presidential adviser William Quandt told the Forward that he is suspending work on several projects to protest President Bush's appointment of Pipes, who has been accused by Arab groups and Middle East scholars of harboring an anti-Muslim bias. Pipes and his defenders have vehemently rejected such characterizations, but institute staffers worry that more scholars will follow Quandt's lead, undermining the institute's reputation for impartiality."
