The pot calling the kettle black!

Thursday, June 26, 2008
I thought that I had heard of every Chutzpah that the Muslim world could throw at the West, but this time they have a new low of accusations. Now it seems that the Islamic Saudi Academy is the subject of Persecution because they are Muslims.View the clip from al Jazeera. This is the school that the US Commission on International Religious Freedom cited that the textbooks used in a American School promote violence, discrimination, or intolerance based on religion or belief. Given the fact that the ISA is run by Saudi Arabia, and that the textbooks used in the school are the same ones used in Saudi Arabia; the Commission was correct to condemn this school for the hatred that the school is espousing.

The Commission has long called for Saudi Arabia to be designated a “country of particular concern,” or CPC, for its egregious and systematic violations of religious freedom. In particular, the Commission has expressed concern about the promotion of religious intolerance and religion-based violence in official Saudi government textbooks used both within Saudi Arabia and at Saudi schools abroad, such as the ISA. The Commission has been urging the U.S. government to press the Saudi government to promote religious tolerance in the Saudi curriculum since 2001, and in 2003 it issued an in-depth report about religious freedom conditions in Saudi Arabia, including intolerance and incitement to violence found in Saudi textbooks and the country’s official educational curriculum. It was not until September 2004 that the State Department first publicly expressed concern over the Saudi government’s “export of religious extremism and intolerance to other countries” at a press conference announcing Saudi Arabia’s CPC designation.

So how did the ISA and the Saudi Government respond to this? Instead of changing the textbooks and removing the hatred, they decided to attack the Commission and the United States, calling both racist and Islamicphobic.

From the transcript of the tape:
Reporter: "We are at the Islamic Saudi Academy in the state of Virginia - the largest institution teaching the Arabic language and Islamic education on the East Coast of the U.S. However, this institution faces mounting pressure, and this is a nightmare for the families of the students enrolled in the academy. This pressure is being brought to bear by several Congressmen, known for their great hostility towards Arabs and Muslims. "

However, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, which was established by Congress, has recommended that the academy be shut down, alleging that its religious curricula, which are taught in Saudi Arabia as well, included material inciting to racism and intolerance towards other religions. [The commission] did not even talk to those in charge of the academy, let alone visit it."

I guess that finally reading the hate filled textbooks was enough to understand exactly what is being taught at the ISA. Given the fact that the 1999 valedictorian of the school, one Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, has been convicted of conspiracy to assassinate the president, conspiracy to hijack aircraft and providing support to Al Qaeda. I am sure his picture is proudly displayed on their walls.Again from the transcript:
Reporter: "The local authority of Fairfax County, where the academy is located, has challenged the threats of closure. It determined that the allegations are invalid, and it approved the religious curricula after examining them. The non-Muslim teachers also expressed disgust and frustration at the allegations."Considering that the School's principal has been arrested for allegedly covering up a 5-year-old girl’s report of sexual abuse by her father.

And considering that the school has promised to clean up the offensive textbooks.Yet the school and Saudis are attacking the Commission even though it is now emerging that this school has been a hotbed of anti-American, anti-Christian, and anti-Semitic hatred for years and a breeding ground for terrorists. And when the US government after years of being stonewalled finally discovers what the true nature of the Islamic Saudi Academy is. They are being called racists.

And that is the pot calling the kettle black.

A note from Radarsite: Another terrific article from Findalis at Monkey in the Middle. This is exactly the nature of the war we are in. Our victories in this war are, it seems, few and far between. We still have so much to learn, both about ourselves and about the enemy we face. Incredibly, seven years into this WOT, we have still not found the political will to clearly define our enemies and act effectively against them. -rg

  1. We are so afraid of upsetting the Saudis that they can get away with this and other actions. If we had a real energy policy and not one based on Mid East Oil, we could easily say to them: F U. But until we are off foreign oil, we have to tread very lightly.

    I do hope your back is better.

    Sorry for the profanity, but there was no better way to express the view.

  3. What profanity?
    Although not accustomed to it's use, I've heard it all and there's not enough of it to describe their hateful ways.
    If there were such a thing as a double-drunken-sailor I wish he would arrive with double the expletives! Its the only way they should be addressed...and even then that would be too nice for them!

  4. When I started to post and respond to blogs I made myself a promise not to use profanity. The F U was and is profanity. I admit it isn't as profane as the Koran, but it still is.

  6. The drek in those texts is derived from the Qur'an & hadith.

    We need to point out this fact and call attention to the source of the evil. See:

  7. I U F, and ISA is NG!

    Again, our neo-Quislings think it's "Oh So Cultural.
    Think "scimitar" is cultural until they get here. Then our own laws become their "scimitars".

    Remember Chuchills comment about the appeasers feeding alligators, hoping they'll be eaten last.
    These people are just abou to order dessert.

  8. Great piece. Cover your ears: "they can ALL go to ........."

    as IF cleaning up those textbooks is going to change what they preach? Ya, RIGHT.

    Great piece. Man, this stuff makes me grumpy. And we are doing SO LITTLE against these schools.

    I had a muslim hairdresser do my hair 3 times.....talked more than any man I know UNTIL, on the third appointment, I asked what school his children went to..he clammed up BIG time.
    "Public"? No
    "religious?" ...........yes

    "what's it called?........
    New Horizons. I felt faint and almost said "these are OUR horizons here.." I know that sounds awful, but.......this stuff should make us ALL nervous.

    new Horizons..........

  10. So they can preach to kill Jews and we are not supposed to say anything? OK, I get it. It is the usual one way street. Once again Muslims prove they are the most selfish people on earth. But we can never truly fight the war with Islam until we get off of Saudi oil.
