More on University Divestment in Iran

I am grateful to Mal Kline for highlighting my NRO article urging university divestment in Iran. He stresses campus leaders’ reluctance so far to take the lead on the issue – which I plan to report on further in the future:

University administrators have long advocated pulling their endowment funds out of investments that benefit countries that the elites find odious yet while they have divested themselves of holdings in nations such as South Africa or Israel, they are reluctant to pull their chips out of Iran, no matter how many terrorist watch lists U. S. government agencies put the regime on.
