Teachers, Preachers: cheap as chips!
by Giulio Meotti, via Vlad Tepes:Â Islam Buys Out Western Academia
It is no wonder that universities are so hostile to Jews and Israel, look at their funding.
Founded in 1789 by the Jesuits, Georgetown, the oldest Catholic university in the United States, must explain why it accepted $325.000 from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which the FBI identifies as the US channel of Hamas.
The donation, revealed byÂ Pajamas Media, was transferred to Georgetown by the Organization for the Islamic Conference for the purposeÂ of organizing a symposium on “Islamophobia”.
- Yep. Â “Islamophobia is a crime against humanity”, and only Muslims are ‘human’. That’s why they call unbelievers sons of apes and swine and the vilest of creatures.
- Hugh Fitzgerald explains “Islamophobia”
- The Far Left ‘Center for American Progress’ wants to poison your mind with lies aboutÂ Islam
The famous Catholic university already received 40 million dollars from the Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal and the Qatar Foundation in 2005.
The story of the Saudi donations in the United States dates back to 1976, when Riyadh transferred one million dollars to the University of Southern California.
In 1979,Â Saudi Aramco World magazine published a list of Middle Eastern gifts, including $200,000 from the Saudis to Duke University for a program in Islamic and Arabian development studies; $750,000 from the Libyan government for a chair of Arab culture at Georgetown University; and $250,000 from the United Arab Emirates for a visiting professorship of Arab history, also at Georgetown.
Until that time,Â Ryadh spent one hundred billion dollars to spread Wahhabism, the most anti-Semitic and extremist version of Islam.
Leading the list of “beneficiaries” is Harvard, with about 30 million dollars. The jewel of the Ivy LeagueÂ received 20 million in 2005 alone.
20 million dollars were donatedÂ to the Middle East Studies Center at the University of Arkansas; 5 million dollars to the Center for Middle East Studies at Berkeley, in California; 11 million toÂ Cornell University in Ithaca, New York andÂ a half million dollars to Texas University (the seventh university, in order of size,Â in the United States); 1 million to Princeton; 5 million dollars toÂ Rutgers University.
The Arab donations are spreadingÂ in Europe as well. In April, a scandal involved St. Andrews University, the third most important in the British academy and a cradle of royal nobility. Hundred of thousands of pounds were discovered toÂ have been sent from Damascus to fundÂ a center for “Syrian studies” there.
In March there was the scandal involving the London School of Economics, one of the best known universities in the world that conferred a doctorate to Saif al Islam Gaddafi, the son of the Libyan dictator. Shortly after receiving his doctorate, Saif al IslamÂ “dropped” a donation to the university of a half million pounds, donated by the Gaddafi Foundation named after his father.
Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal and the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Foundation have established other centers and programs at prestigious institutions of higher education around the world, all sharing in the common goals of promoting dialogue, increasing understanding, and fostering mutal respect.
