Just to recap -- and rerun Pat Crowley's excellent artwork:

Yale sold itself out in 2009 -- or tried. That was the year that Yale University Press submitted to the dictates of sharia and eliminated the 12 Danish cartoons of Mohammed in a book about the 12 Danish cartoons of Mohammed. That was the year "Middle East outreach" openly trumped freedom of speech, and the corruption was complete. But where was the Big Islamic Oil Money payoff?

Somehow, Yale wasn't as tempting as Harvard and Georgetown and so many other recipients of Muslim World lucre -- although the Yale business school did mange to net undisclosed sums from the Maktoun family of Dubai. So, Old Eli kept those tweaks and lifts kept coming: the fellowship to an Alwaleed-bin-Tala-connected daughter of a Muslim Brotherhood kingpin; the cold, locked-down "master's tea" Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard was given on his American tour marking the fourth anniversary of the cartoons' publication (where Yale's Muslim chaplain messed with the elderly Dane);  the fawning over over Jordan's Queen Rania on the occasion of opening a Palestinian agit-prop exhibit, and more. A partial chronology is here. Yale would also kill a ballyhooed interdisciplinary initiative to study anti-Semitism after hearing from "critics" including the PLO rep to the UN "complaining of the attention paid to anti-Semitism among Palestinians and [other] Muslims."

What else could Yale do?

Honestly, I don't know -- but last week Yale announced the establishment of a center at the Yale Law School to study sharia.

Insult to already mortal injury, the Saudi Sugar Daddy whose $10 million put his name on the center (the Abdullah S. Kamel Center for the Study of Islamic Law and Civilization at Yale Law School) runs what appears to be an al Qaeda piggy bank, according to reports in the Wall Street Journal cited by Breitbart News in a recent story -- information, in other words, widely available to Yale.

The sale is complete.
