Look what has 'surfaced:' a video of the brother of the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates torturing a man. The torturer's brother is a great friend to NYU!

The torturer in the video is UAE Royal Sheikh Issa bin Zayed al Nahyan. His brother is the Interior Minister, and his other brother is the head of the country, Sheikh Mohammed. He's the man whose name is plastered on NYU's Abu Dhabi campus, because he paid for it.

NYU and its Abu Dhabi partners share important perspectives — a mindfulness of history, but a focus on the future; a belief that the evolving global dynamic will bring about the emergence of a set of world centers of intellectual, cultural, and educational strength, great magnets that will draw people of talent and talent-based enterprises (business, educational, and cultural)

NYU President John Sexton's great friend and money source, the crown prince is! This video, obtained by ABC News, shows the crown prince's brother torturing a man, allegedly because he cheated him on a grain deal. He shoves sand in his mouth, shoots a gun next to him, beats him, puts salt in his wounds, and runs him over with his SUV. Not shown in the clip is this part: "He uses an electric cattle prod against the man's testicles and inserts it in his anus. At another point, as the man wails in pain, the Sheikh pours lighter fluid on the man's testicles and sets them aflame."

The torturer won't be prosecuted, because the matter was "settled privately," and the government said "all rules, policies and procedures were followed correctly by the Police Department."

Different cultures are educational!
