Office of the President

Ithaca, NY 14853

Dear Ms. Garrett:

Congratulations on your recent appointment to President of Cornell University! We hope you take this opportunity to examine Weill Cornell Medical College’s extensive relationship with a state sponsor of terrorism.

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar, the country whose capital hosts a campus of Weill Cornell Medical College. Since 2001, the Qatar Foundation has borne all campus development costs associated with the campus in Doha’sEducation City.

Cornell University, an Ivy League institution, is one of the most respected institutions of higher learning in the nation, and indeed the world.  Weill Cornell Medical College, which became affiliated with Cornell in 1998, is one of the most prestigious and selective medical schools.

Following the Hamas attack on Israel this summer, Cornell’s presence in Doha, Qatar came under scrutiny by Jewish organizations.  Qatar is an open supporter of the Gaza-based terrorist group, which fired thousands of rockets at Israel in July and August, killing and wounding dozens of innocent Israelis.  Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center called Cornell’s presence in Qatar “outrageous,” while the Zionist Organization of America called on Cornell and other American universities to “end or suspend their programs in Qatar.”

In light of these events, we urge to you read the information below, which includes evidence that Qatar is arguably the preeminent sponsor of terror in the world today.  It is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram; it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell; and profits from operating a virtual slave state.  Qatar has leveraged its relationships with violent jihadi groups to its own benefit, and to the detriment of the United States and her allies.

So the public understands why this letter is addressed to you, Cornell’s past and current activity suggest a growing partnership between Cornell and the terror-sponsoring Gulf state:

  • In 2001, the Qatar Foundation funded an initiative in Doha, the Education City. It welcomed six American universities, Weill Cornell, among them (in 2001), to build campuses in the complex.  The Qatar Foundation, which has noted links to terrorism, pays all associated campus development costs.
  • In 2004, Bill Clinton and Al Gore both visited Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar. In 2013, Qatar donated between $1-$5 mil to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation; also in 2013, Al Gore sold CurrentTV to (Doha-based) Al Jazeera, profiting personally a reported $100 million.
  • Despite recent criticism, Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar announced in September their intentions to expand their presence, partnering with the Qatari medical company Aspetar for clinical trials and education.
  • Sheikh Mohammed Hamad Jassim Al-Thani, MBBChB, the Director of Public Health for the Supreme Council of Health in Doha, Qatar, is on the faculty of Weill Cornell Medical College in New York (since 2011).
  • The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities.  The links cited are vetted and credible sources.  We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking!

Sharia in Florida: Hamas-CAIR Terror Supporter Presents “Understanding Sharia & Family Law Mediation” at ADR Legal Conference

Screen Shot 2013-08-05 at 1.24.06 PM

By Pamela Geller:

Introducing sharia into ADR (alternative dispute resolution). For those who ask why Florida (or any state) would need a sharia prohibition, here’s your answer. The sharia creep is insidious and stealth.

Cornell University defines it this way:

Any method of resolving disputes other than by litigation.  Abbreviated as ADR.  Public courts may be asked to review the validity of ADR methods, but they will rarely overturn ADR decisions and awards if the disputing parties formed a valid contract to abide by them.  Arbitration and mediation are the two major forms of ADR.

Briefly, Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) “includes dispute resolution processes and techniques that act as a means for disagreeing parties to come to an agreement short of litigation……ADR has gained widespread acceptance among both the general public and the legal profession in recent years. In fact, some courts now require some parties to resort to ADR of some type, usually mediation, before permitting the parties’ cases to be tried.” (Indeed, the European Mediation Directive (2008) expressly contemplates so-called “compulsory” mediation; this means that attendance is compulsory, not that settlement must be reached through mediation).

The 21st Annual Conference for ADR Professionals: “Expanding Our Horizons” on August 9-10, 2013, at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida is featuring sharia presented by none other than Hazb’allah supporter and Hamas-CAIR’s Hasan Shibly.

Why isn’t the conference organizers having some like David Yerushalmi, an expert on sharia law, to counter the propaganda? 

Contact conference organizer Amy Karimipour, Conference Manager amyk@akconsultinggroup.org 850-523-4200 and politely voice your concern and opposition to the their giving a platform to do dangerous and hate-filled terrorism supporter. (see below for sunstantiation). And request equal time for a legal expert like Steve Coughlin or David Yerushalmi.

The sharia calls for death to apostates, honor violence and murder, Islamic supremacism over non-Muslims, four male wtinesses in rape cases, sub-class status for women and non-Muslims.

America’s Future Belongs to Islam

20130205_Muslims_Pray_Capitol_LARGEby PAUL L. WILLIAMS, PHD:

(author of Crescent Moon Rising)

Islam, according to newly released data from the Association of Statisticians  of American Religious Bodies, is now the fastest growing religion in America,  verifying President Barack Obama’s claim that the United States is “no longer a  Judeo-Christian country.”

How many Muslims now live within the country remains anyone’s guess, since  the U.S. Census Bureau neglects to collect data on religious identification. A  2008 study by Cornell University projected that the number of Muslims in America  had climbed from 1.6 million in 1995 to 7 million.[i] A U.S. News and World  Report survey, which was conducted at the same time, placed the figure at 5  million,[ii] while the Pew Research Center set the number at 2.35 million.

But Pew researchers admit that their survey was not thorough since it  neglected to take into account immigrant and poor black Muslims.[iii] What’s  more, these researchers only contacted Americans with telephone landlines and  failed to take into account the fact that nearly 50% of U.S. residents and age  18-35 and the nearly 100% of the illegal immigrants who communicate exclusively  by cell phones.[iv]

Muslim organizations, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations  (CAIR), supported the Cornell  University projection of 7 million – - based on  mosque attendance.[v]

In any case, all demographers agree that throughout the coming decades, the  faith of the Prophet Mohammed will continue to impact and transform all aspects  of American life: social, political, and economic.  They further maintain  that, save for a cataclysmic sea-change in population trends, Islam by 2050 will  emerge as the nation’s dominant religion.
