Congressman Frank Wolf: US Universities Pimping for Radical Islam in Exchange for Cash

Congressman Frank Wolf sent a stunning letter yesterday to Georgetown University questioning a $20,000,000 donation from a Saudi Prince, Alwaleed Bin Talal. To my knowledge, this is the first attempt by Congress to investigate the extensive Saudi infiltration and influence of Academia in the United States through the funneling of large amounts of petrol-dollars to "Islamic studies" programs across America. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a crackdown on the long-standing disgrace of US Universities pimping for radical Islam in exchange for cash.

"I write today to share with you my long-standing concerns about the influence and activities of the Government of Saudi Arabia… I hope you can understand my dismay…in light of Georgetown’s role in training American Foreign Service personnel and diplomats…

Specifically, I would like to know if the center has produced any analysis critical of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for example, in the field of human rights, religious freedom, freedom of expression, woman’s rights, minority rights protection of foreign workers, due process and the rule of law. It is also important to know if the center has examined Saudi links to extremism and terrorism, including the relationship between Saudi public education and the Kingdom-supported clerical establishment…and the rise of anti-American attitudes, extremism and violence in the Muslim world.

Finally, I request information on whether any of the Saudi-source funds have been used in the training, briefing or education of those going into or currently employed by the U.S. Government."
