The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report is bringing attention to how a group of U.S. universities has shockingly partnered with the Muslim Brotherhood in Qatar.
Five universities helped organize the January 15th launch of the Brotherhood-affiliated Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics in Qatar. The participating universities were the University of Colorado, Georgetown University, Texas A&M University, Virginia Commonwealth University and Weill Cornell Medical College.
To get an idea of how bad this is, consider the fact that Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi, the top Muslim Brotherhood theologian, spoke at the event. He is rabidly anti-Semitic and a supporter of suicide bombings and Hamas. Tariq Ramadan, the son of Said Ramadan and John Esposito, the most prominent apologist for the Brotherhood, also spoke.
Wait, it gets better.
Six universities established branch campuses with the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies. They are: Northwestern University, Carnegie Mellon University, Virginia Commonwealth University, Georgetown University, Weill Cornell Medical College and Texas A&M University.
What does the Brotherhood teach students at this school in Qatar?
The QFIS website offers graduate programs in:
- Islamic Finance, also known as Sharia Compliant Finance, a mechanism used to support Islamists and even terrorism. Learn more at ShariahFinanceWatch.org.
- Public Policy in Islam—in other words, “political Islam,” the ideology of the Islamists.
- Islamic Studies with a Specialization in Contemporary Fiqh—meaning, Sharia Law.
- Urban Design and Architecture in Muslim Societies
- Contemporary Muslim Societies—which, I’m sure, the Islamists will teach objectively.
This sort of problem is pervasive in academia. Stephen Schwartz, an anti-Islamist Muslim, documents the affect Saudi funding is having on Harvard University.
