Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Dhimmi Aussie University Sought Saudi Dollars

Griffith University in Australia asked Saudi Arabia to bankroll its Islamic Studies. (It should be noted, the University has no other religion-specific studies to offer students.) The funding was supposed to be super secret, but apparently the dhimmis in charge could not contain their enthusiasm:

A PROMINENT Australian university practically begged the Saudi Arabian embassy to bankroll its Islamic campus for $1.3m, even telling the ambassador it could keep secret elements of the controversial deal.

Documents obtained by The Australian reveal that Griffith University - described by vice-chancellor Ian O'Connor as the "university of choice" for Saudis - offered the embassy an opportunity to reshape the Griffith Islamic Research Unit during its campaign to get some "extra noughts" added to Saudi cheques.


While the Brisbane university says its centre is designed to promote moderate Islam, the Saudi Government espouses a hardline version of the faith, policed at home by the Mutaween, the country's religious police notorious for enforcing strict Muslim laws.

It makes one wonder how many other Universities, in the United States and elsewhere, seek questionable funding to promote the Islamic agenda...
