A few weeks ago Campus Reform went to Harvard University and asked students who they felt was the greater risk to the world; the United States or ISIS. Some indicated that the US was the greater threat and claimed that American policies were responsible for the creation of radical Islamic movements such as ISIS. Some Harvard students then followed up on this “study” creating their own video questionnaire and found similar responses, videos posted below.
Harvard University is renowned as perhaps the most famous and supposedly intellectual colleges in the United States. The skills exhibited by some of the students in the videos bring into questions these conclusions.
It is remarkable that students from this prestigious University believe the United States responsible for radical Islam and the infighting within its subgroups. Had these students studied world history instead of the phony academics that make up much of today’s college curriculums they would have been taught that the Sunni–Shia divide that is led to so much conflict within the Islamic world began shortly after the death of the Islamic Prophet Mohammed in 632 with infighting over the secession to the Prophet. They would also learned that this conflict began over 1100 years before the founding of the United States.
