The Islamic Saudi Academy: In The News Again

Article in the D.C. Examiner on December 17, 2008 (emphases mine):
Rep. Wolf again petitions for probe of Northern Va. Islamic schools

Examiner Staff Writer 12/17/08

Rep. Frank Wolf on Tuesday again asked the State Department to take a more active role in addressing whether textbooks being used at two Islamic Saudi Academy campuses in Northern Virginia promote violence or intolerance.

“I urge you once again ... to conclusively determine what is being taught at the school,” the Republican, who represents Virginia’s 10th District, wrote to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. “As I noted in my last letter, if [the academy] is in the process of adopting new curricula, as State’s response indicated, then this review would have the effect of determining once and for all whether there is any merit in these persistent concerns and if so what must be done about it.”

This is the fifth letter Wolf has written to Rice about the schools, which have campuses on Richmond Highway near Alexandria and in Fairfax City.

In June [2008], a U.S. commission issued a report that outlined a series of hate-filled teachings they said remained in the schools’ curricula. The passages authorize the killing of adulterers and converts who leave Islam, condemn Jews, and celebrate martyrdom.
As of now, here are the comments at the thread:

Dennis Grubb: "Rep. Wolf's daughter in law is Muslim and is asking making this inquiry without prejudice..he merely wants the Secretary of State to do her job, make an inquiry and answer his letter.This is what makes him an effective Congressman."

POSTED Dec 17, 2008
Raymond in DC: "I commend Wolf's efforts. This school - linked to the Saudi embassy - is part a broad effort to insinuate and legitimize Islamic fundamentalism onto US soil. I, for one, don't recall Rice ever challenging the Saudis on anything - not as head of the NSC, not as head of State."

Rice a Roni
: "A.J your a liar. This anti America and anti Jewish films and books is well known. Frank is not anti- muslim he wants an inquiry. Frank is one of the better congressman in the US congress. Lets not even mention the worthless Condi Rice. Someone please ask he to curtail her farewell tour We do not have the budget for the jet fuel. She can use a telephone"

Nouman
: "What happened to freedom of religion and freedom of speech? What business does government have in monitoring what any private religious school teaches? Is the government going to be going through all religious schools curriculum?"

POSTED Dec 17, 2008
Andrew in Massapequa
: "This should be done automaticly. We can not allow our enemies to make inroads into young peoples minds. If they are not doing anything wrong then they shold not be afraid of scrutiny."

POSTED Dec 17, 2008
Robert L. Duecaster
: "Kudos to Mr. Wolf for urging an investigation into this potential risk to national and local security. He ignored that risk by failing to take any action regarding the invasion of his district by illegal aliens. Maybe he can salvage his legacy by drawing attention to this potential risk."

POSTED Dec 17, 2008
condoman
: "Lest we forget it was at that school, after 911, that the government, through surveillance, was able to stop a plot from 2 of their students flying to the Middle East to conduct their own form of Jihad in the name of Allah. So,why did A.J.not mention that?!"

The Islamic Saudi Academy is owned by the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia and operates with apparent impunity, only a few short miles from our nation's capital.

Iftikhar,
Fuck you!

I took your comment down because it was Taqiyya, and therefore not a reasoned response to this post.

We have an American word for Taqiyya. It's "bullshit".

Pastorius,
Well, I missed seeing that comment.

No big loss, I'm sure.
