Yale is set to ditch Taliban Man and may hire a notorious anti-Israel professor.

Yale Looking For Face-Saving Way to Oust Talibani Student

Evidently Yale doesn’t like the negative publicity it’s received since welcoming Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi, the unreconstructed Taliban knuckle-dragger admitted under their non-traditional student program. Writing in the WSJ Opinion Journal, John Fund reports that Yale plans to toughen up admission standards for non-traditional degree students, which currently accept three quarters of applicants (compared to the 10% of applying high school students).

This will allow Yale to reject Hashemi’s application to a degree program without admitting that they were utterly stupid and morally bankrupt for admitting him in the first place. Or maybe they’re just afraid they’ll be beheaded.

Meanwhile, Yale faces a new challenge. In the next few days the university may hire Juan Cole, a history professor at the University of Michigan, to fill a new spot as a professor of contemporary Middle East studies.
