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.

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.”

Islamic Saudi Academy Seeks Expansion in Virginia

Frank Gaffney, Jr.

At this writing, the Board of Supervisors of Fairfax County, Virginia are poised to make a momentous decision. After a hearing tonight, the Supervisors could well accede to demands by the House of Saud to change the name of their jurisdiction to Faisal County, in recognition of the contributions the late Saudi king and the virulent strain of Islam promoted by his government in Northern Virginia and elsewhere.

Just kidding. No, for the moment at least, the Saudis are only seeking that the supervisors approve the use of a fraction of the county as a Wahhabi beachhead in America. They want a prime piece of undeveloped real estate to effect a sizeable expansion of the kingdom’s school here known as the Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA) so as to enable it to enroll 1,200 students.

Never mind that this school has become notorious in recent years for the association of a number of its faculty and students with terrorism. As David Stokes has documented in an excellent article posted over the weekend at, the perpetrators have run the gamut from those implicated in plots to assassinate a sitting president of the United States, to casing the structural supports for a major bridge to trying to smuggle a butcher’s knife aboard an airplane.

Such behavior is not exactly surprising, given the Islamic Saudi Academy’s intolerant and violent pedagogy. The problem starts with the textbooks supplied by the government of Saudi Arabia which have repeatedly been found to be anti-Semitic, anti-Christian and inciting of hatred against non-Muslims more generally.

The larger problem is the Academy’s adherence to the repressive theo-political-legal program authoritative Islam calls Shariah. For example, the school gained notoriety a while back when its principal confessed to forcing a female student – in accordance with Shariah and in violation of Virginia law – to return to the father she accused of abusing her physically.
