What a shame. Another reason for me to always denounce and oppose the American University of Beirut, and to call for its nationalization, along with all other colonialist/missionary universities in our midst. AUB will award James Wolfensohn an honorary doctorate. Can you imagine? A symbol of all what is wrong with Western patronizing and capitalist exploitation of the developing countries. He was close to Rafiq Hariri (like all bad men in Western capitals), and it seems he is being rewarded for the friendship. AUB progressives should categorically reject this nomination and protest against it, I say. He also was a tool for Bush's White House in Palestine. Enough said.
