London School of Economics stops accepting stolen money

A year ago, we discovered that the London School of Economics was 'partnered' with the Islamic University of Gaza. During Operation Cast Lead, Israel discovered that the 'Islamic University' was running a rocket production facility for Hamas right on its campus.

Now it turns out that LSE accepted a donation of 1.5 million British pounds from the Gadhafi International Charity and Development Foundation, which is chaired by the Libyan leader's son, Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, an LSE graduate. Now, after the 'distressing' violence in Libya, LSE has announced that it is 'suspending' the program.

Well, why were they taking the money in the first place? Where the hell did they think it came from? Given Libya's socialist economy and with Seif al-Islam Gadhafi having no obvious source of independent wealth (aside from kickbacks and influence peddling, if not outright theft from the public treasury), the money had to be tainted. Did LSE think Libya wasn't a repressive regime before this happened? What were they thinking?

By the way, just last month a motion to boycott Israel was defeated at the London School of Economics. You can watch highlights of the debate here.

What is happening at the LSE has a lot to do with the craven dhimmitude of its pathetic director Sir Howard Davies. This is something I have been investigating at length:

The British love affair with repressive Middle Eastern regimes is matched only by their venomous hostility to Israel.

Look no further - money talks louder than principle.
