Skip to comments.County ignores warnings re: teaching of shariah law
Posted on 08/05/2009 5:31:01 AM PDT by IbJensen
A coalition of concerned citizens is contemplating its next move now that the Fairfax County (Virginia) Board of Supervisors has granted a Saudi-funded Islamic academy a zoning exemption to allow it to expand its facility.
The Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force (VAST) had lobbied hard against the move. But on Monday, by a 6-4 vote, the Fairfax County supervisors sided with the Islamic Saudi Academy which had requested a zoning exemption to expand its 34-acre campus to accommodate 200 additional students.
While there were some concerns about added traffic problems, the Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force voiced its concerns about the curriculum at the school. During his testimony before the vote, VAST chairman James Lafferty shared his group's concern that the Academy was "raising the next generation of terrorists."
"We believe that the Islamic Saudi Academy is not only teaching shariah law, it is practicing shariah law," Lafferty charged.
He then cited an example when the principal of the Academy followed shariah law instead of state law in dealing with a student's complaint of being assaulted.
Lafferty tells OneNewsNow that the county, in approving the facility's expansion, clearly pandered to the Islamists who support the school.

Haven’t some of the graduates from this school become terrorists? Bombers? We are slowly being taken down from within. Lord, help our country. We are being led by people who want us destroyed.
Pandered? No. More likely they were bought off.
That cancer needs to be stopped.. and now.
The ones that they will eventually destroy placed them in power. And grimnnrfd like a shit eating oppossom all over national t.v. after they did it.
... Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, the school’s valedictorian in 1999, was convicted in November 2005 of joining Al Qaeda and plotting to assassinate President Bush, for which he was sentenced last week to life in prison;
2003 graduate Raed Abdul-Rahman Al-Saif was arrested last month at a Florida airport when he allegedly tried to board a plane while in possession of a seven-inch kitchen knife.
ISA faculty and graduates have been implicated and convicted in numerous plots to launch homicide missions against Israel, board airlines with concealed weapons and photograph bridge structures in DC.
the supervisors, the ones that don’t get murdered, should be thrown out of office and people put in place to ride the acadmy till they shut down under pressure.
