Giuliani does not run Harvard or Georgetown
In the latest installment of the Winds of War, I wrote:
Proof that Rudy Giuliani (remember?) does not run Harvard or Georgetown, the two esteemed universities gleefully accepted $20 million each from Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. Daveed Gartenstein-Ross has taken on the issue and clarity that should not be necessary to deliver.
Opinion Journal has noted this as well in Prince of Tithes: Will a Saudi's gift to Harvard really promote understanding?
Prince Alwaleed is also the same person who wrote a $10 million check for New York after 9/11 and then issued a statement saying: "At times like this one, we must address some of the issues that led to such a criminal attack. . . . [The U.S.] should re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stance toward the Palestinian cause." Mayor Rudy Giuliani famously sent the check back. "There is no moral equivalent for this attack," he noted. "Not only are [Prince Alwaleed's] statements wrong, they're part of the problem."
