It is good to know such progress being made. I've been dismayed about the professorial lack of accountability for many years and feel relieved to learn of this.

But what about the multi-million dollar long-term Saudi cash endowments to Harvard and other schools that contribute to the spread of malinformation, misinformation and disinformation about the Middle East? Viewed in retrospect, it is clear that their "investments in education" have been influencing government policies for decades. What have you to report about this?

Daniel Pipes replies:

I do worry about the money but much more about the ideas. The Middle East studies specialists are not mercenaries out to make a buck but ideologues with a vision. Money enhances their reach but rarely buys them.
