Alas, few Middle Eastern universities measure up to MPAC's standards

Reader comment on item: MPAC Calls Me an "Expert on Islam"

Submitted by Chris LA (United States), Sep 24, 2012 at 10:44

According to www.shanghairanking.com, only five universities in the Middle East measure up to MPAC's standard of being in the world's top 500 universities -- Saudi Arabia's King Abdul Aziz, King Faud, King Saud, Iran's University of Tehran, and Egypt's Cairo University. Al-Azhar doesn't seem to make the cut. It would be interesting to know the academic qualifications of MPAC's top 25 experts on Islam.
