... Jeffrey Imm...reports on the meeting regarding the Islamic Saudi Academy:
Imagine facing the overwhelming odds of fighting for equality in Islamic supremacist Saudi Arabia...These were the same odds faced by a handful of activists in challenging the estimated 600 supporters of the Islamic Saudi Academy at Northern Virginia's Fairfax County Planning Commission on the night of March 18, 2009. Many hundreds of the Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA) supporters wore printed name tag badges reading "I Support ISA," including ISA's logo containing the emblem of Saudi Arabian government with its two crossed swords....
The meeting of the Fairfax County Government Planning Commission was to consider a special exemption to a zoning regulation to allow for the building of an expansion to the Islamic Saudi Academy in Fairfax, Virginia. The Fairfax County government has been leasing space for the existing Saudi Academy facilities for years now. As a suburb of Washington DC, Fairfax, Virginia is slightly more than 20 miles away from our nation's capital. The Islamic Saudi Academy has been frequently criticized for its reported use of textbooks promoting hate and violence, its former students associated with jihadplots, reports of negligence on reporting female child sex abuse, and ISA's former valedictorian convicted of joining Al-Qaeda and plotting to assassinate the president.
At the government public meeting, the Fairfax County government board auditorium was packed by Islamic Saudi Academy supporters beyond capacity with dozens standing in the aisles and corridors, as it sought to show its clout to Northern Virginia's Fairfax government. It was an event that most Fairfax residents were unaware of, but the Saudi Arabian-backed institution's supporters were well organized to demonstrate their power in Virginia. Andrea Lafferty, one of the few speakers to challenge the Islamic Saudi Academy was nearly ushered out....until she fought to have a seat in the audience.
As Islamic Saudi Academy's attorney Lynn Strobel presented their case to the Fairfax County Planning Commission, she emphasized the public support of her clients seeking the expansion of this Islamic supremacist, Wahhabist-based institution...to demonstrate their power, Lynn Strobel turned to audience and asked the supporters of the Islamic Saudi Academy to rise. In the auditorium packed with individuals wearing printed badges "I Support ISA," virtually EVERY person stood up.
While the Islamic Saudi Academy's attorney and their speakers were treated courteously and with respect, those in opposition to the Islamic Saudi Academy were treated very differently. The bullying mob of Islamic Saudi Academy supporters was frequently allowed to disrupt the tiny number willing to speak against the Islamic Saudi Academy's planned expansion in Fairfax County. Several speakers challenging this expansion were loudly booed and laughed at -- until the Fairfax commission chairman Peter Murphy (as this was being captured on video) would eventually call for order.
While most of the activists challenging the Islamic Saudi Academy addressed typical zoning issues like traffic and local conservation issues, they also addressed the challenge to human rights in extending land use for an institution with a documented history of textbooks promoting hatred and intolerance, and whose leaders and students have been linked to covering up female child sex abuse and terrorism plots. One commissioner criticized such activists for addressing such human rights and human security issues as "people there who obviously had an agenda."
Anyone called the Sierra Club for comment on the Potomac watershed?
What is the name of the commissioner who criticized the activists?
OH MY GOSH!!
Saudi Arabia - Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death. Bibles are illegal. Churches are illegal. Easter celebrations are illegal. It is punishable by death for a non-mulsim to enter the “holy” muslim cities of Medina and Mecca.
Does that mean Obama is illegal? He was a Muzzie at birth!
Allowed to expand? It should be shut down.
Yes - he would most likely be killed in Saudi Arabia. But as a black man, he most likely would be a slave there and the very least suffer severe discrimination...
Our elected officials who WE put in office to protect our interests and follow the laws and the constitution are pandering to special interest groups and voting blocks to keep thier sorry a##es in office. So lets help them, come election day see how they voted and if they had YOUR interests in mind, I would guess they didn’t, them show them the door!
You have got to be kidding. I didn’t see any press coverage of this whatsoever, let alonea reporter bothering to call the local environmental people. The Sierra Club has bigger fish to fry, such as stopping construction of the border fence in the middle of the fng desert so the illegals have an easier time getting in. This proposal before the commission, and eventually the Fairfax County board, would negate the land use rules that have been in place there for ages (to the point of controlling how many toilets existing homes are allowed to have), and which have been used in the past to stop the construction and expansion of Christian schools. The whole deal stinks to high heaven in more ways than one.
I suspect you don’t live in Northern Virginia, which is not only a People’s Republic, but an Islamic colony as well.
When I think of how long these lawsuit-filing morons have held up the Inter-County Connector in Maryland with their court actions, I can’t understand how we couldn’t use the same sort of weapons against these Jihadists.
You are so right. We have plenty of those morons here in Fairfax County, hence the current uproar of widening 66. I wish they would do their thing with the Saudi school.
