Law professor Jonathan Turley ridicules protesters after Iran offers them scholarships: 'This could be really educational' |  The Gateway expert

The country of Iran has apparently offered scholarships to student protesters expelled for their anti-Israel protests.

We have to hope that at least some of these students will take up the offer.

Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, had fun, noting that it could be a real opportunity for these students to learn about the world.

Turley writes:

Come for the education, stay for the amputation: Iran offers free scholarships to American students

This could be really educational. Students protesting on our campuses have received free scholarships from Shiraz University in Fars. So while Northwestern has settled with protesters to give scholarships to Palestinian students and positions to Palestinian faculty, American protesters can now go to Iran for their education.

Mohammad Moazzeni, head of Shiraz University told the media that “students and even professors who have been expelled or threatened with deportation can continue their studies at Shiraz University and I think other universities in Shiraz and Fars province are also prepared [to provide the conditions].”

This could be the most transformative educational experience of their lives. Of course, Iran is better known for its floggings than for its freedom of speech.

Iran is particularly sensitive to such contradictions, such as executing homosexuals while denying that there are homosexuals in Iran, or objecting to the treatment of protesters in the West while imprisoning, beating and killing protesters.

Warning: Vegan meals are not available at Iranian protests. Instead, it has ordered the arrest and murder of writers and artists, while organizing fun events such as a cartoon contest about the Holocaust.

The students carrying around signs reading “queers for Palestine” could be in for a rude awakening in Iran.

Feminist students can also get quite a wake-up call.
