Letter from Richard Sherman to the NY Post, re foreign funding to universities and antisemitism

November 11, 2023

Wai Wah Chin in her twisting road map searching for "The Real Reason for Campus Antisemitism" fails to obey an investigator's first rule: Follow the Money.

The Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy in its just released November 9, 2023 report entitled "The Corruption of the American Mind" makes clear the antisemitic effect of $13 billion in "undocumented" contributions to American universities and colleges from Middle Eastern and authoritarian governments.

The ISGAP’s findings included that at an estimated 100 US colleges received $13 billion in “undocumented” contributions from foreign governments, many of which were Middle Eastern and authoritarian. Schools that received this money were found to be home to prevalent campaigns to silence professors and experienced higher levels of antisemitic and anti-Zionist incidents on campus.

From 2015-2020, the report noted, schools that accepted money from Middle Eastern donors had, on average, 300 percent more antisemitic incidents than schools that did not accept such donations.

The ten largest recipients of concealed foreign donations were Carnegie Mellon University ($1.5 billion), Cornell University ($1.3 billion), Harvard University ($895 million), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ($859 million), Texas A&M University ($521 million), Yale University ($495 million ), Northwestern University (402 million), Johns Hopkins University ($401 million ), Georgetown University ($379 million), and University of Chicago ($364 million ) according to the report.
