From Elsewhere: Infiltration at British universities
The Trending Central website has put up a very disturbing article from the Student Rights organisation about how much money is being pumped into British universities by repressive Islamic regimes.
Trending Central said:
“A new report by campus pressure group Student Rights has revealed that Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Britain received more than £100 million in tuition funding from some of the world’s most repressive regimes over the past decade, including money from Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
‘At What Price? Transparency and Ethics in Higher Education Funding from Overseas’, released this weekend, found that at least £14.4 billion in overseas tuition fees was collected by British HEIs since 2000/01, with serious concerns raised at the transparency of funding streams from abroad and the ethics of accepting fees from opaque international sources.
The report argues that money from repressive regimes is regularly accepted to pay tuition fees, including from security apparatuses, state-owned companies, and foundations. Countries such as Syria and Bahrain, where governments are actively involved in violent repression, continue to fund UK universities.
£100,739,060 in tuition funding came from repressive countries rated ‘Not Free’ and given a score of six or higher by Freedom House, and disturbingly, half of the universities included in the study (49 percent) failed to provide adequate data, highlighting a significant issue around transparency of international funding”.
£100 million pounds is an awful lot of money, and although academics and university administrators will tell the British people that such money doesn’t affect academic or research outcomes, it is impossible to believe that it doesn’t.
Maybe this money is why British universities are hotbeds of Islamic extremism and places where student atheist societies are penalised and subjected to heavy-handed oppression purely for wearing a ‘Jesus and Mo’ t-shirt.
Because there is so much dodgy Islamic money coming from places like Saudi Arabia and Iran sloshing round our universities it IS going to make academics more wary of examining Islam in the sort of way that it needs to be examined.
We already have a ‘European Muslim Research Centre’ based at Exeter University co-headed by Robert Lambert, formerly of the Metropolitan Police Special Branch Muslim Contact Unit, who advised that Jihadists should be ‘engaged with’ and and were suitable candidates for ‘dialogue’. How much is his department getting from the tainted wallets of Islamic nations?
How can anybody trust any academic who is funded by oppressive Islamic nations to produce research that is fair, decent, honest and truthful? The answer is you can’t.
