*Â The Sowdi’s won’t do anything about these texts. Especially those texts that are written by Allah himself. Blue-eyed stupidity byÂ useless Homeland Security officials:
An update on this story: State is allowing the Islamic Saudi Academy to continue operating because school officials have assured them that they will — in effect — stop teaching things they have been teaching as basic tenets of Islam. And State bought it. Of course.
Update: Â Patrick Poole has a good piece on the Islamic Saudi Academy in Fairfax, Virginia, in the news recently for the radical Islamic ideology they’re teaching children. But the story is actually a lot worse than it first appears:Â What Virginia’s Islamic Academy Doesn’t Want You to Know.
“State lets Islamic school operate: Officials say Saudi institute will revise violent textbooks,”
State Department officials said Thursday they have no plans to close a Saudi-financed Islamic school in Northern Virginia that has failed to eliminate violent and intolerant language in textbooks. “They told us they would revise the textbooks by the 2008 school year,” State Department spokesman Rob McInturff said. “We don’t plan to take additional action apart from the discussions that have been going on with the Saudi government.”
* When will these dimwits in the state department start getting a grip?
*Â Killing infidels and Jews is central to the doctrine of Islam. Why is that so hard to understand?
Same thing in olde England:
UK Muslim children taught to hate unbelievers and Britain itself
No surprise here — except for those who believe that Islam is a religion of peace and that Islam has no political or societal character or agenda. “Muslim children in Britain ‘brought up to hate their homeland,'” by Duncan Gardham for the Telegraph, June 11
U.S. government helping fund Islamic Saudi Academy
You know the Islamic Saudi Academy:Â the one that teachesÂ mainstream Islamic concepts such as the killing of apostates and adulterers. Patrick Poole reports in “What Virginia’s Islamic Academy Doesn’t Want You to Know” atÂ Pajamas Media, June 13:
The Bush administration considers the Saudi government to be one of our allies in the War on Terror, and that support extends to the Islamic Saudi Academy as well. Cinnamon Stillwell recently noted an article in the Mount Vernon Gazette that reported 22 soldiers from Ft. Belvoir had recently graduated from the Islamic Saudi Academy’s “Arabic as a Second Language” program. This means that the school is not only being funded by the Saudi government, but also our own government. Deputy Assistant Secretary of The Army Dr. Lynn Heirakuji and the U.S. Army’s Deputy Assistant for Foreign Languages Erol Smith attended the graduation ceremonies.No doubt we’re all grateful that our government is so adept at identifying who our enemies really are.
Patrick has much more — about criminal activities going on in the school, and more official indifference. Read it all.
