A Virginia school is teaching anti-Semitism and Islamic supremacism. Because, of course, these are the fundamentals of Islam. Caught in the act, with their hijabs down, as it were, what are the consequences? Little.
These same folks who attacked this country, took out the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and attempted to blow up the Capitol building and/or White House, are teaching their violent bile to their young here in America -- and the State Department says cut and paste? They defer to the Saudis? These are acts of war; this school should have been shut down at once.
And this is just what we know about. Which, considering the secrecy of this death cult, is very little. And still we permit such egregious violations?
The valedictorian of the school was involved in a jihadi assassination plot against President Bush. Is it any surprise?

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."
Results released Wednesday from a federal investigation into the Islamic Saudi Academy - with campuses in Alexandria and Fairfax - found textbooks at the 900-student private school had passages that blame the Jews for "discord" and say it is sometimes permissible to kill non-Muslims.
The investigation by the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom focused on 17 textbooks used during the last school year and obtained from independent sources.
The panel, formed by Congress, last year recommended the State Department close the school, though members had not yet reviewed the textbooks. The commission said the Foreign Missions Act gives the Secretary of State authority to "require a foreign mission to divest itself of or forgo the use of property and to order it to close."
State Department spokesman Gonzalo Gallegos on Thursday cited the Saudi government's 2006 acknowledgement of a need to revise its textbooks and agreement to do so "in time for the start of the 2008 school year," which starts this fall.
Who is running things here in the US? The US or the Saudis?
The passages found in the review, according to the panel, include:
-- A passage in a 12th-grade Koranic interpretation textbook that states it is permissible for a Muslim to kill those who have left the faith, an adulterer or someone who has murdered a Muslim intentionally: "He (praised is He) prohibits killing the soul that God has forbidden (to kill) unless for just cause ...."
The commission said the text defines "just cause" as "unbelief after belief, adultery and killing an inviolable believer intentionally."

When concerned Americans testified before the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, these Americans were termed "slanderous bigots" by the Board Chairman Gerry Connolly. Connolly is now the Democratic Party's nominee for the 11th District for the U.S. House of Representatives!
On my last radio show, I cut loose with info on the ISA -- info which may not be anywhere else. See this and listen.
People need to understand what's going on here in the D.C. area.
On Tuesday, June 17, there will be a demonstration against the ISA. See the first comment at this posting.
We have until June 30th to get that ISA lease overturned.
