    I was thinking more class disruptions and antisemitic romps, but youíre right.

    The Peopleís Republic of China has also been pouring cash into US universities for some time now.

    I'm not saying Iran is wonderful by any means, IL. But one thing I'm trying to do less of is broadbrushing - even with the police. Here all I'm saying is that not all Iranians are bad news - I even know of one that's not. But yes the current regime IS problematic - granted and given. Rob

    do not know. I highly doubt that is public information, which doesnít mean it isnt happening.

    Why donít you use your contacts at Princeton to see if it is tainted in this way? Report back, I am i terested.
    I am not a serious person.

    Current regime? It’s been a cancer since 1979. Or do you consider it the same regime since then?

    It seems the Chinese have been the largest source of foreign money since 2013.

    I assume there are conspiracy theory websites happy to answer your second question.

    Interesting. I wonder if they're getting their money's worth from the investments. At least Saudi Arabia waited until after Trump's son in law left power before they gave him his $2B gift. That seems like a smarter plan.
