Saudis On Verge Of Establishing Huge Wahhabi Base In Fairfax County Virginia

Saudis On Verge Of Establishing Huge Wahhabi Base In Fairfax County Virginia


July 13, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - If things progress the way they seem to be, by this time tomorrow the Islamic Saudi Academy [ISA], located in Fairfax County, Virginia, will have been approved to expand it's facility to be able to accommodate 1,200 Islamic "scholars."

The institution is supported by the Saudi government, specifically the kingdom's Ministry of Education, notorious for its strict promotion of Wahhabist Islam in the classroom.

In the most recent study of Saudi textbooks, some of which are used at Virginia's ISA, the New York Times found that, "Despite years of work aimed at changing Saudi Arabia's public school curriculum, the country's latest textbooks continue to promote intolerance of other religions, a new study said Tuesday. A first-grade student is taught that "Every religion other than Islam is false"; the teacher instructed to "Give examples of false religions, like Judaism, Christianity, paganism, etc." Fifth graders learn "It is forbidden for a Muslim to be a loyal friend to someone who does not believe in God and his prophet, or someone who fights the religion of Islam." [source, http://www.nytimes.com/2006/05/24/world/24saudi.html]

Other, less politically correct studies find far worse:

"This is some of the wisdom taught to eighth graders, "As cited in Ibn Abbas: The apes are Jews, the people of the Sabbath; while the swine are the Christians, the infidels of the communion of Jesus." "God told His Prophet, Muhammad, about the Jews, who learned from parts of God's book [the Torah and the Gospels] that God alone is worthy of worship. Despite this, they espouse falsehood through idol-worship, soothsaying, and sorcery. In doing so, they obey the devil. They prefer the people of falsehood to the people of the truth out of envy and hostility. This earns them condemnation and is a warning to us not to do as they did. They are the Jews, whom God has cursed and with whom He is so angry that He will never again be satisfied [with them]." [source, http://www.zionism.netfirms.com/Anti_Semitic_Saudi_texts_USA.htm]

The Fairfax County Supervisors' "meetings" at which this decision has been considered have featured crowds of up to 600 angry supporters cramming themselves into the supervisorial chambers and then systematically intimidating the few opponents willing to speak out against the planned expansion. These demonstrations of total intolerance are almost always accompanied by the Islamic call to prayer, adding to the intimidation factor.

Many commentators on this topic have noted that several former alums of the academy as well as some former faculty members have been involved in serious acts of terrorism, with David Stokes observing, "Raed Al-Saif is a 2003 graduate of the Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA), the same institution that gave us the likes of Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was the school's valedictorian in 1999. If that name rings a bell, it's because he's the guy who was convicted in 2005 on charges that included "providing material resources to Al-Qaeda" and "conspiracy to assassinate President George W. Bush." [source http://townhall.com/columnists/DavidRStokes/2009/07/12/the_county_and_the_school_of_hate?page=full&comments=true]

It is difficult to assess the reasoning behind the county supervisor's support of this program. Whether it is due to hectoring by the nearby Saudi loving State Department or sheer intimidation by the school's local proponents, if this institution receives the go-ahead to expand it will serve as a concrete lesson to the Islamists that America, especially under the Obama administration can be easily rolled with the effect being the establishment of a huge foreign controlled and dominated Islamic jihad factory almost within throwing distance to the center of American government. http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=isaid=7.13.09%2Ehtm
