[Ed. note: The following letter, addressed to Campus Watch, is signed by concerned residents of London, Ontario, home of Huron University College (HUC). On May 11, Campus Watch published an article by Canadian journalist Barbara Kay, “The Dumbing Down of Due Diligence at Canada’s Huron College,” a shorter version of which appeared May 13 in Canada’s National Post. Kay detailed the questionable sources of funding for a new chair in Islamic studies at HUC. The signatories of this letter also signed an April 5 letter to HUC interim principal (president) Trish Fulton, referenced below, explaining their concerns about the funding.]

We thank Campus Watch for publishing the excellent essay of Barbara Kay on the establishment of a Chair in Islamic Studies at Huron University College in London, Ontario funded mainly by the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) and the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC). Your coverage sparked quite a bit of media interest in Canada and, at last, this matter is getting public attention.

This report is coming to you from a number of the individuals who signed the original letter of concern to Huron University College. (It is not signed by all of them because we want to get the information contained in this communication out quickly and we do not have the time to contact and receive a reply from all the signatories.) As the message is too long for a letter to any editor, we hope you will publish this on your web-site as an update to Barbara Kay’s essay.

  1. OPEC aided and abetted by the left in the west has been driving up the cost of oil so they could make us pay for our own destruction, part of this has been to fund chairs in various studies that will end up being held by jihadists or their sympathizers. This money should be rejected and the chair removed from the school.

  2. Richard has just posted pretty much what I was going to say.

    Wow, great anti-Islamists think alike.

    I will add that since the rise of OPEC, practically all departments in western universities that want to study Islam and the Middle East must kow-tow to the Saudis who are the largest exporter of “official” Islamic literature on the planet.

    Its the equivalent of letting “Dr.” Goebbels print all information on Nazi plans for Europe back in the day.

    “No, we don’t have plans to re-arm or conquer Europe for a Liebensraum. That’s just ‘our man’ Hitler talking. Just ignore that.”

    Yeah, sure whatever you say, Herr Dr. And my canary is going to have pups.

    Its time that the Muslim propaganda machine be exposed for what it is: pro-jihad propaganda and nothing less.

  3. I don’t know who said it but, “The true test of a man’s intelligence is how much he agrees with you.” By this standard RR you are very intelligent.
