Economic times are tough---but an Ivy League Institution should do enough diligence on donors and strategic partners before sullying its reputation while burnishing the stature of a nation whose leading citizens rank among the most despicable sponsors of terrorism and evil throughout the world. Have trustees of Cornell sunk into the swamp with Qataris who create victims filling hospitals so many places? For Cornell Medical School, is the "Hippocratic" Oath now the "Hypocritic" Oath? Do your own research on Qatar--during World War II, would Cornell's trustees take money from Adolf Hitler to pursue medical research inside Germany and train doctors there? What has happened in recent years involving Qatar and Cornell seems little different to me.
