The Clarion Project Reports On $10 Million Gift From Saudis To Yale

SaudiMenElliot Friedland writing for The Clarion Project describes a recent $10 million gift to Yale University to establish a Center of Islamic Law and Civilization.

Friedland notes:

Last week Saudi businessman Abdullah Kamel donated $10 million to Yale Law School, to establish a Center of Islamic law and Civilization. This was not a benign gift, but a deliberate part of Saudi Arabia’s broader strategy of spending money to spread its ideology.

The version of Islamic civilization taught at Yale and the version of sharia law taught there will not be a pluralistic open discussion of the rich tapestry of Islamic thought. It will be proselytizing Saudi Wahhabism.

Saudi Arabia donates money around the world to fund its intolerant, supremacist and theocratic vision of Islam. It has already endowed Harvard and Georgetown Universities with $20 million each, used to fund chairs of Islamic Studies. At Georgetown, the HRH Prince Alaweed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding purports to promote interfaith dialogue.

Its subsidiary, The Bridge Initiative devotes itself to attacking perceived “enemies of Islam” and the “islamophobia.

The Saudis have spent $100 billion to spread Wahhabism and Islam around the world. This is part of Islam’s “civilization jihad” effort to spread this pernicious ideology in Western nations.
