At the Federalist, Sloan Rachmuth of the Haym Salomon Center details how Duke University, "By accepting more than $111,000 from Qatar Foundation International to provide U.S. teachers anti-Israel training . . . is abusing its status as one of only 14 Middle East National Resource Centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education to provide guidance on curriculum materials and teacher training for K-12 Middle East studies." Having reviewed the training materials, she concludes that it has "an extreme bias in favor of Islam and Sharia law, and against Israel."
She also notes the involvement of a number of problematic Middle East studies professors, such as Duke's Miriam Cooke, UNC's Omid Safi, and Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies associate director Shai Tamari, who oversaw the controversial Gaza conference in April, which is now being investigated by the DoE for anti-Israel and anti-Semitic bias.
