EVENT: Fairfax County, VA Board of Supervisors hearing on Islamic Saudi Academy expansion plan

WHERE: 12000 Government Center Parkway Fairfax, VA 22035

WHEN: Monday, July 13, 2009 at 6:00 p.m.

JULY 12, 2009 – FAIRFAX, VA: The Fairfax County, Virginia Board of Supervisors will hold its final hearing Monday night to consider a plan by the Saudi government-owned Islamic SaudiAcademy to expand its campus in the county. The Islamic Saudi Academy is planning to build an immense Shariah-ruled campus in Fairfax to teach the apartheid doctrines of Shariah. As usual, Fairfax officials are bending over to help, even though the Islamist campus may severely damage the environment of the neighborhood and cause unmanageable traffic. This massive ISA campus is opposed by a rapidly growing group of Fairfax taxpayers who will testify July 13.

In 1985, the Fairfax Board of Supervisors refused a school permit filed by Robert L. Thoburn for the Fairfax Christian School – on the identical property, for fewer students, and a generation ago with less traffic and less environmental risk.

ISA faculty and graduates have been implicated and convicted in numerous terrorism-related crimes: to assassinate the President of the United States, launch homicide missions against Israel, board airlines with a concealed weapon and photograph bridge structures in the Washington, DC area. An International Commission cited the school for textbooks which advocated murdering Jews and contained numerous other anti-Christian, anti-Semitic and anti-American tirades. Radio commentator and Fair Oaks Church pastor David Stokes discusses the highly controversial school’s association with multiple terrorist-related arrests and convictions in “The County and the School of Hate” at and adds: “In the case of ISA, there appears to be an almost fawning and subservient approach on the part of many county leaders.”

The Fairfax County government recently sent invitations to a free dinner presentation on Islam as a religion of “peace and harmony” to county churches and to some who have testified against the Academy’s planned expansion in the past. County government personnel and resources were used to distribute the e-mailed invitations.

“The Fairfax County government has been compromised and the Saudis and their radical cohorts are getting their money’s worth out of all of their political contributions,” said James Lafferty, chairman of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force. “Churches and synagogues here can’t even get the government to talk to them, let alone help them proselytize.

“Fairfax County government is already following the first rule of Shariah law – Islam is the state religion and the only religion. While brave American men and women are dying to defeat terrorists – spineless Fairfax County politicians turn a deaf ear to terrorism in its midst.”

Speak Out July 13 – Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force

Monday, July 13 is the date of the final Board of Supervisors hearing on the Islamic Saudi Academy’s huge expansion plan here in Fairfax County.  Fairfax County politicians are ducking the responsibility they swore in their oath of office to “Support the Constitution of the United States.”  Children now being taught at the ISA are being indoctrinated in Anti-American, Anti-Semitic and Anti-Christian ideology so that they will be prepared to be the radical Islamists of the future.  See the flyer for Fairfax Supervisor addresses to mail and call to object to the ISA expansion.  VOTE NO ON ISA!

Connolly Flip-Flops on Saudi School
After Giving a Full-Throated Defense of “Terror High,” Connolly Now Calls for Investigation after Feeling Political Pressure

Washington- Gerry Connolly, the Democratic Chairman of the Board of Supervisors for Fairfax County and Democratic candidate for Virginia’s 11th Congressional District, suddenly reversed his position and turned on the Islamic Saudi Academy yesterday, as he asked for the State Department to investigate the school. The school has come under harsh criticism from the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, a panel appointed by the U.S. Congress, over the last year for the high potential of spreading anti-American teachings to its students. This past week, the head of the academy was arrested on obstruction of justice charges with regards to a child abuse case….more
