The UK has the most corrupt universities in the West. And when a country has the most corrupt universities, it automatically is the most corrupt country. In the recent months we had the story of Gaddafi and British universities (the embarrassing disclosure over connections between a British university and an authoritarian Arab regime follows the row that engulfed the London School of Economics over its links with Gaddafi’s regime, etc ). The story of Rafsanjani and Oxford university showed us that how corrupt are the prestigious British universities. And now, a prestigious British university, The University of St Andrews, where Prince William and Kate Middleton studied, has received more than £100,000 in funding for its centre for Syrian studies with the assistance of Syria’s ambassador to the UK, Sami Khiyami. The university’s association with the Assad regime has come under scrutiny in the wake of the violent crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators in Syria which is estimated to more than 500 lives so far. In addition to Khiyami, who the Foreign Office confirmed had been invited to the royal wedding, the center’s board of advisers also boasts figures closely associated with the Damascus regime, including Fawaz Akhras, the charismatic British-based cardiologist who is not only Bastard Assad’s father-in-law, but also acts as a gatekeeper for the family, screening British journalists before they are granted an interview with his daughter Asma al-Assad or his son-in-law. A British MP said he found it astonishing that St Andrews had not mentioned the relationship with Syria in response to a freedom of information request he submitted about donations from the Middle East or Africa since 2000. Robin Simcox, who studied foreign funding of universities in a report for the Centre for Social Cohesion, said: “Universities take this money claiming they’re going to break down walls and open relations. What they end up doing is colluding with murderous family-run regimes. These universities have got it wrong. With the likes of Gaddafi, they say the people they’re taking money from are reformers. They’re not reformers !!!, they’re tyrants”
The British universities are the most corrupt universities in the West, and American universities are their rivals. What can you expect from these corrupt systems? Could they help the poor oppressed nations? They are certainly the main supporter of the tyrants and oppressors. Shame on them all.
