Middle East studies in the News
The Fifth Column [on Middle East studies, Title VI, Saudi funding; refs. John Esposito, Hamid Algar]

For those of you that are unaware of the universities and colleges in the United States and Canada that are unashamedly and overtly indoctrinating students to turn against their own country's institutions, their parents, military, traditions and history by those same institutions own faculty and the non-reporting and indeed ad vocation of it by the cowardly media, read the following and heed these words carefully.
For the past 20-plus years the apologists, appeasers, and allies of the Islamo-fascists that have taken root on our own shores have gone unabated and with total disregard for their own nations' safety, liberty and history of good and decency.
The media and the rest of the ignorant asked after the horrors of September 11, 2001, how and why did this happen?
It happened, certainly not because of what leftist propaganda merchants would have you believe. You know the old lines: because we're in Iraq (or the Middle East in general) because we support Israel, because of American imperialism, or the old favourite, because of oil.
It happened because of one simple reason, because they hate us. Don't give me that root cause crap either, that is the root cause. They do hate our freedoms, they do hate our liberty, they do hate tolerance of all religions.
After the cowardly attacks of 9/11 is when the real damage was done. That is when our youth were told and taught we were to blame for it. We were terrorists, aggressors and oppressors.
How did this happen? How did we go from having children, alongside their parents, flying American/Canadian flags and celebrating our troops on Veteran's Day and proudly celebrating the freedom and history of America on Independence Day?
Aside from political correctness gone amuck, this is how: the teachings of Wahhabism and the lie of "America is evil". But how and when did they start believing in such nonsense? Well, the genesis of it all started around 1958, that's when the U.S. Department of Education instituted a program called Title VI of the National Defense Education Act. Title VI was the Language Development section of the NDEA.
Remember, what befell the Roman and Greek empires- the first and longest-lasting republics in history? They were destroyed not by a foreign army (at least not at first) but from appeasers and traitors within.
This is now how both foreign haters of America that have managed to infiltrate its education system and allow American-born socialists, liberals and leftist supporters and general haters of their own country, under the protection of America's own laws-particularly the constitution and political correctness (aka social paranoia) have been able to facilitate their traitorous and ignorant tendencies.
No one country has facilitated and moreover funded Islamist fundamentalist dogma more than Saudi Arabia, our so-called "allies".
The House of Saud has spent approximately $70 billion (a literal drop in the petrol bucket) the world over to spread wahhabism to ensure anti-Americanism and anti-Israel hatred.
According to the Middle East Quarterly:
Hamid Algar of the University of California writes in "Wahhabism: A Critical Essay":
If that weren't enough, author and survivor of Islamic terror in the 1980s Lebanon Civil war, Brigitte Gabriel, writes in her book, "Because They Hate" about Islamic apologist, John L. Esposito, a professor of religion of international affairs and of Islamic studies at Georgetown University. He wrote in his book, "Unholy War, Terror in the Name of Islam":
Exactly how much money is being poured into North American universities and colleges in the name of wahhabism? According to source material:
$20 million to set up a Middle eastern studies program by Saudi King Faud at the University of Arkansas; $5 million to UC Berkley by two Saudi shaikhs with ties to al Queda, $22.5 million to Harvard and $28.1 million to Georgetown, $11 million to Cornell, $5 million to MIT, $1.5 million to Texas A&M, $1 million to Princeton. Rutgers and Columbia each received a $5 million chair endowment. Columbia was apparently caufgt trying to conceal not only the monies received, but the source of it.
However, that's not all the recipients of Saudi hate money. There's still UC Santa Barbara, John Hopkins University, Rice University, Syracuse University, Howard University and others.
These endowments give traitor professors and so-called intellectuals the means under the protection of their version of free speech, as well as being protected by so-called civil rights organizations such as C.A.I.R. and the ACLU. They are then free to use dawah (persuasion and reason) to perpetuate their taqiyya (big lie) on their young, unsuspecting victims.
If all this wasn't enough, Title VI not only pays the salaries of these professors and their Saudi allies of deception. it also supports Saudi "mercenaries" on these university and college campuses.
These mercenaries are actually student activists that are trained overseas in the summer to learn terrorist tactics, then return in the fall to institute their newly learned "skills". Thus, more and more anti-American and anti-Israel doctrine is spread, and nothing is being done about it. People think that it can't happen here, Well, I assure you it is and has been for some time.
