(WATCH) Update: Antisemitism

An update to our reporting about Qatar and its funding of numerous universities where antisemitism has exploded. Texas A&M recently ended its contract with the Qatari foundation that supports its branch campus in that country. The change followed release of a study by the Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy. We spoke with Charles Small, the head of the group, in December.

The following is a transcript of a report from “Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson.” Watch the video by clicking the link at the end of the page.

Charles Small: We’ve learned that funding by Qatar, in particular, has influenced American academia when it comes to issues of democracy, the West, the notion of America, American society, the United States in the world, and when it comes to the Jewish people in Israel. And basically, Qatar, its spiritual leaders of the Qatari royal family is the Muslim Brotherhood.

A series of investigative reports by Small’s group points to the Muslim nation of Qatar, a key supporter of the terrorist group Hamas and the biggest foreign funder of American universities.

Sharyl: Can you explain what Qatar’s special interest might be in undermining the West and promoting this idea of antisemitism?

Small: So basically, the Muslim Brotherhood wants to destroy Israel, and they’re Islamists, and they believe all of the Islamic world has to be under the control of Islamist ideology. They want to create a caliphate; they want to get rid of Western interests, Christians, Jews, moderate Muslims who don’t believe in their ideology, and replace it with an extremist caliphate, and in doing so, weaken the West.

A crucial facet of Qatar’s funding of American universities is a massive facility near Qatar’s capital, dubbed “Education City.”

Education City hosts on-site campuses in Qatar for Texas A&M, Georgetown, Cornell, Northwestern, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Carnegie Mellon.

Small says Qatar’s contract with Texas A&M is especially concerning.

Texas A&M has access to two nuclear reactors for teaching and research. The school has accepted more than $1 billion from Qatar for more than 500 research projects, including sensitive nuclear research.

Small: We know that Hamas, their leadership lives in Qatar and is supported by the Qatari regime. Are they sharing some of these military secrets or research with them?

Sharyl (on-camera): Other than Texas A&M, the other universities mentioned, Georgetown, Cornell, Northwestern, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Carnegie Mellon, reportedly still have Qatari connections.

  1. I recently heard an American Qatari apologist claim the Qataris are only funding US universities as a way to have satellite campuses in Qatar for those who cannot study abroad; i.e. women whose male guardians refuse to give permission for them to leave the country. This same apologist claimed the Qataris have a right to suppress women’s rights–something Human Rights Watch has blasted them for–because “male guardianship is part of their culture.” This from a former government official.
