Will Brandeis finally make it permanent?suspended its partnership with 'east' Jerusalem's terror supporting al-Quds University. Perhaps this latest incident involving al-Quds glorifying terrorism will convince Brandeis to make it permanent (which the University has yet to do as best I can tell). Al-Quds has decided to honor the 18-year old 'Palestinian' terrorist who 'accidentally on purpose' drove his car into a crowded light rail station two weeks ago and murdered two Israelis in the process (video of the terror attack here).
This is from the second link.
Four days after Palestinian terrorist Ibrahim Al-Akari killed two and injured more than 13 Israelis in Jerusalem, the UN- and EU-funded Al-Quds University honored him by naming a tournament after him.
Dr. Ahmad Al-Khawaja, in charge of the Physical Education Faculty of the Al-Quds University, which organized the tournament, explained that:
"The Martyr (Shahid) Ibrahim Al-Akari Tournament... it was a national activity held in honor and appreciation of the soul of the heroic Martyr Ibrahim Al-Akari"[Al-Ayyam, Nov. 11, 2014]
In July 2013, the UN announced a donation of €2.4 million (close to 3 million US dollars) from the EU and UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) to Al-Quds University, the aim of which would be to "contribute to the development and protection of Palestinian cultural heritage in the old city of Jerusalem."

The Burj Luq Luq Social Centre Society, which helped organize the tournament honoring Al-Akari, is also funded by several Western donors. The Center's annual report for 2013 lists the following international donors: UNICEF, UNDP, European Union, French Consulate, British Consulate, Pontifical Mission, ANERA (American Near East Refugee Aid) and Terre des Hommes. [p. 56 in Annual Report 2013 of The Burj Luq Luq Social Centre Society http://www.burjalluqluq.org, accessed Nov. 13, 2014] The Center states on its website that its "message" is to "aspire to have a positive impact on the economical, cultural and social level for the local community."Read the whole thing.
But of course, that won't cause anyone to cut off their support of al-Quds or Burk Luq Luq....
