Justifying Terrorists

Apr 25, 2012 17:16

When John Esposito of Georgetown and many other American intellectuals and educators support Sami Al-Arian and other convicted promoters of Islamist terrorism, one wonders about their thinking. When Mr. Esposito received a $20 million grant from a Saudi Prince, he promptly renamed the center in Georgetown after that donor. The center is now called His Royal Highness Al-Waleed bin Talal Center for Muslim/Christian Understanding.

New York Mayor Giuliani had turned down a $10 million grant for his city from the same donor because of the political strings attached. Could it possibly be that American educators supporting Islamism are more easily influenced by money than American politicians?
