Ivy League Schools Among Top Recipients of Funding From Arab Countries

Ivy League Schools Among Top Recipients of Funding From Arab Countries

“Between 1986 and 2021, colleges and universities received nearly $8.5 billion from Arab sources”

There is serious money involved here. Rather interesting in light of recent events, isn’t it?

Ivy League among top recipients of $8.5 billion Arab funding

Last week, former Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal called Muslims all over the world to protest in support of Palestine as recognition of a global “Day of Jihad” on Oct. 13, and for Muslims in neighboring countries to join the war against Israel.

“Tribes of Jordan, sons of Jordan, brothers and sisters of Jordan… This is a moment of truth and the borders are close to you, you all know your responsibility,” said Meshall. The statement was issued from Qatar—which turns out to be the largest Arab nation investor in American universities.

Qatar has given American universities $4.3 billion over 35 years, according to a 2021 report by Executive Director of the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise Dr. Mitchell Bard.

“Between 1986 and 2021, colleges and universities received nearly $8.5 billion from Arab sources,” the report states.

“In recent years, Qatar have been the largest investor in universities,” Dr. Bard’s report reads. “It, too, has an image problem as a funder and supporter of terrorist groups – Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood – and the home of the rabidly anti-Israel anti-American Al Jazeera television network.”

Dr. Brad also notes that since 1976, Arab governments and individuals have been providing American universities with hundreds of grants to create chairs and centers in Middle Eastern and Islamic studies.

Student groups at major gift recipients have come out against Israel in droves since the start of the latest Israel-Palestine conflict—beginning with the Hamas terrorist attack on Israeli civilians on Oct. 7.

According to Dr. Brad’s report, Cornell is the single largest recipient of Arab funding with over $1.5 billion gifted between 127 gifts or contracts. Qatar also signed contracts with Cornell for six years prior to 2020 for the strange amount of $99,999,999.

Cornell University’s Students for Justice in Palestine (Cornell SJP) chapter has vigorously participated in nationwide students’ pro-Hamas social media campaigns—posting Instagram announcements and/or statements every single day since Oct. 10. The organization is hosting a rally on Oct. 18 to “protest the occupation in Palestine.”

I am ashamed of my alma mater (but not terribly surprised); Cornell was just beginning to fall off the left side of the bench by the time I graduated.

    I think Martha Pollack at Cornell has been above average for Ivy+ presidents during the past 5 years or so, maybe one of the best. You get some of these outbursts at Cornell, but they rarely seem to go far.

    Princeton, Yale, Harvard and MIT on the other hand have gone completely nuts. MIT just got a new president who seems to be very good. She’s trying to restore sanity and a memory of what they once were.


Dear fellow readers of LEGAL INSURRECTION:

We do not have to attend these schools.

We do not have to support institutions that — let’s face it — have permitted themselves to become Influence Agents for DeepPocket incredibly deep pocket Foreigners Who Share ~Zero American Values

(Don’t agree? Then what in the name of heaven are these people purchasing with their billions with a B dollars?)

    If you would like to attend college in Qatar or Yemen or any other Arab culture or country , then by all means go ahead—if they’ll have you.

    Billions of dollars allows considerable influence in hiring and firing, in curriculum content, etc., etc.

    Not just special “named” programs.

    Soo — you pay your money and you THINK your kid is getting top flight American Higher Ed, but in fact
    it’s an increasingly Sunni

    Is this what you want?

    Then one would have to be very careful where one goes to school. Maybe state schools are less susceptible to such influence, but since they have generally lower budgets, maybe not. I wonder how the University of Michigan (Hamtramck and Dearborn are basically Islamified by now) is.

    Qatar seems to have had enough money to spread around to all the generally considered most elite schools, the same places where Seeley G. Mudd once distributed his much smaller fortune and has a building named for him on each campus.
