Are our universities selling themselves to the highest bidder? (Telegraph)

I have a piece in today's Telegraph on Arab funding of universities. It's here.

Well done Mr Pollard, you managed to stir up another round of Muslim hate and Arab baiting in the talkbacks to your article. Nothing like keeping up the anti Muslim agenda is there?

Lukas, he wasn't "Stirring up hate" as you put it. He was merely reporting the possibility of a link between large amounts of money given from Arab states with bad human rights records to British universities and the negative views being promulgated about Israel in the said universities. It is something that needs to be looked in to in case it's true. You can't not mention something bad that an Arab country does in case it might stir up hate. All actions of all countries, both positive and negative, should be equally reported and exposed to scrutiny. If people are making hate-filled remarks (which I haven't seen any evidence of, only negative ones, there is no mention of anyone wanting to hurt anyone)then the responisbility for the remarks lies with the people who make them, and not with Mr Pollard in his article. Curiously enough, mainsteam papers never seem to take the view that they shouldn't say anything negative about Israel in case it turns in to anti-Semitism.
