Jihad-Teaching "Palestinian" U Receives U.S. Funding


JERUSALEM – A Palestinian university that receives U.S. funding counts among its students senior members of the Islamic Jihad and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror groups, WND has learned.

One Brigades leader openly enrolled at the college – Al-Najah University in the northern West Bank town of Nablus – described the school as a main jihad recruiting ground.

Another terror leader told WND he was studying chemistry at the university to learn how to enhance the deadly effects of suicide bomb belts.

This week, Al-Najah hosted a law conference at which the trial of deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was deemed "illegitimate," America's war in Iraq was slammed as "illegal" and Saddam was hailed for encouraging insurgents to "fight American occupation."

Read it all.

What'll we learn next? Is anything a surprise anymore?
