Islamist Infiltration of American Universities

Ryan Mauro is the national security analyst and Shillman Fellow for the Clarion Project. This article was written with the assistance of Campus Watch, a project of the Middle East Forum.

It’s the best political example of projection if there ever was one. Other…
