Islamist Hate Exposed By Traditional Values Coalition

by | Mar 20, 2009 | Blogs, The Strang Report

Traditional Values Coalition’s  executive director takes on an Islamist school in Fairfax County, Va.

The Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA) in Fairfax, Va. went before the local planning commission Wednesday night to seek an expansion of their controversial and secretive school funded and controlled by the Saudi government.

A large group of residents near the school asked the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) for help in organizing and strategizing against the expansion, which has seen raids by local police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and used anti-Christian, anti-Semitic and anti-American textbooks. The school is operated by the government of Saudi Arabia and there has been some confusion over whether federal or local officials should take jurisdiction over the extremist Wahhabi teaching and clandestine activities which have marked the ISA’s history.

Andrea Lafferty, TVC executive director was among those who testified at the raucous hearing–which lasted until after 2:30am– had an overflow crowd and featured a large presence by supporters of the Islamic Saudi Academy.  Residents near the ISA and members of local churches also attended the hearing in large numbers and voiced their opposition to the ISA.

 

Here are some highlights of what she told the Commissioners:

The campus of the Islamic Saudi Academy operates under the principles of Shariah law.

The principal who was arrested for not reporting the sexual abuse of the five year-old student was following Shariah law when he turned the child back to her abusive father and suggested he “get control” of her. Under brutal Shariah law, children do not have basic human rights and neither do women.

The ISA texts have included :

  • peaceful coexistence with so-called “infidels” is unattainable and that violence to spread Islam is not only permissible, but an obligation.
  • in order to safeguard their own religion, they must violently repress and even physically eliminate the other.
  • A narrative and drawing of the most efficient way to cut off the hand and foot of a thief.   Is cutting off someone’s hands the sort of “free exercise of religious belief” which our fellow Virginian Thomas Jefferson envisioned in the First Amendment to our Constitution?
  • Apostates (those who convert from Islam), homosexuals, adulterers and people who murder Muslims can be permissibly killed.
  • The apes are Jews, the keepers of the Sabbath; while the swine are the Christian infidels of the communion of Jesus

Let’s be frank.   Every time the Islamic Saudi Academy gets caught with hate filled textbooks they claim they have fixed the problem— by crossing out a line with a sharpie pen, whiting out a section or simply tearing out a page and the ISA says is fixed.  But you can’t fix what the Wahhabists teach.

Remember that 15 out of 19 of the 9-11 hijackers were Saudi nationals learning from these very textbooks.

Since the Commission made it clear they did not want to hear any concerns except those they deemed related to “land use,” Andrea closed with this statement:

The narrow definition of land use made me wonder as I prepared my testimony: Was there a Planning Commission in Auschwitz?

Were they more concerned about the upkeep of the property and the loud clatter of trains going in and out all night or, perhaps, the smoke stacks which spoiled the sunset.

What if someone had gone beyond the form and dealt with the substance of how the land inside that institution was really being used?

Are we too avoiding mentioning the obvious in our discussion of land use at the Islamic Saudi Academy?

TVC witnesses were jeered and booed by some in the crowd – many of whom wore long gowns and head coverings or veils.

One member of the commission insisted that TVC Executive Director Andrea Lafferty say the names of the “cowardly politicians” cited in a TVC flyer distributed by local residents and church activists.

Before she could answer, many people in the audience responded “You” loudly and then shouted out names of local liberal politicians.  The chairman had to gavel the hearing to order so that the audience would stop shouting the names of the liberal bosses.

We believe the ISA’s objective is to train young Muslims to become the next generation of homicide bombers and terrorists. They want to ensure that their kids grow-up to hate our kids and they work to guarantee that jihadist violence will continue for another generation.

Cowardly politicians of both political parties take money from Islamist Political Action Committees and do their bidding when it comes to official business like the planning commission.

Local residents were astonished at the treatment they received from the commissioners as compared to the deferential and preferred treatment given by Islamic Saudi Academy proponents.

Virginians who expect fair treatment from their government are being outbid by the Saudi extremists who pump money and illegal grassroots support into the campaigns of the liberal Congressman and Board of Supervisor candidates’ campaigns.

The local homeowners thanked TVC for the expertise and support it provided in their efforts to fight the well-financed ISA which brought a large entourage of lawyers and consultants to the hearing. Officials from the Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR) attended and monitored it from the back of the room.
