Educating the Educators

Reader comment on item: Harvard Loves Jihad

Submitted by Charlie Taub (United States), Jun 11, 2002 at 12:07

The only way to educate universities of the dangers they are promotoing (directly or indirectly) is to correlate federal funding to their behavior. If our institutions can't protect our children, we should not fund them. Our new Homeland Security Department should set aside funds to educate our educators and our children to the real and tangible dangers we face as a society from Islamists.

We should turn our universities into our first line of defense in detecting militant Islamists infiltrating our educational system so that they can use their knowledge, taught here, against us on our soil. Let us keeping in mind that Usama bin Laden referred to his hijackers as students.

Instead of giving medals, let us reward people who give information on these groups, just as the FBI does for its most wanted list. ..
so we need to educate the public and do the job ourselves.
