The Clarion Project's Shireen Qudosi laments Qatar's growing influence on America's universities and K-12 education alike, noting that the Islamist regime's "funding of schools and programs not only inevitably influences decision makers but also primes the next generation with talking points that undermine American excellence and interests."
Qudosi draws a line from the radicalism that began taking hold on US college campuses in the 1960s and that now threatens "[d]epartments of history, religion, and the humanities," to Qatar's civilizational onslaught. As she puts it, "Qatar is playing the long game in the ideological war . . . something the United States should have been planning for on September 12, 2001."
