A new report delineates how Qatar, the largest foreign donor to U.S. universities, uses its enormous financial resources to influence what the report calls the “organizations, institutions and mechanisms that are being used by the Qatari paymaster to manipulate Western democracies.”

“Islamism developed in Qatar between the 1960s and 1980s, and it was influenced by the writings of significant Muslim Brotherhood (MB) scholars/ideologues such as Sayyid Qutb,” states the report from the Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy titled, “Networks of Hate: Qatari Paymasters, Soft Power and the Manipulation of Democracy.” “A group of Muslim Brotherhood members gradually re-developed strategies, and started thinking in terms of ‘human rights’ and ‘civil society’ for its proselytizing (da’wah) system.”

“Qatar gains faculty advocacy for pro-Qatari perspectives on campus. Indeed, academics are ultimately incentivized to incorporate pro-Qatari advocacy into their syllabi,” the report adds. “Thus, Qatar is seemingly able to normalize its ideological imprint on American classrooms. This would seem to constitute inappropriate foreign pedagogical interference, masked by superficial academic engagement. “

The report suggests that Congressional hearings “should be convened to fully understand the impact of Qatar’s aggressive investment strategies and assess their influence on Western democratic values and potential security implications,” and an investigation should be launched into universities that take funds from Qatar and an assessment should be made to “assess the impact on education and curriculum, scholarship, and discourse.”

“Is this a cause of the explosion of antisemitism in higher education that has placed Jewish students and faculty in difficulties?” the report asks.
