The Geheime Staatspolizei Chair in Human Rights at St Antony’s College, Oxford

The Gestapo will endow certain colleges

Also endowed is the Joint State Political Directorate under the Council of People’s Commissars of the USSR Chair in Human Rights

Oxford will do anything for money

Dalrymple writes:

I daresay the university would have been happy to institute a chair in human rights endowed by the Gestapo or the O.G.P.U.

Help from the O.G.P.U. for universities grubbing for cash

How Oxford prostitutes itself to Gulf Arabs 

Dalrymple was

somewhat taken aback

to learn that Tariq Ramadan, the Islamist ‘thinker’, had been given a job at St Antony’s College, Oxford,

though it became less surprising to me when I learned that his chair had been endowed by the Qataris. [Ramadan’s title is His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Hamad bin Abdullah bin Jassim bin Mohammed al-Thani Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies.]

Dalrymple comments:

That the university had prostituted itself in this way seemed to me also to be emblematic of the condition of the university’s country as a whole: a hybrid of Augean stable and brothel.

Benefactor: His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Hamad bin Abdullah bin Jassim bin Mohammed al-Thani
