Educating Terrorists on Our Home Turf

June 13, 2008

Remember those Islamic schools that promised to rid their textbooks of violent teachings, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian dogma? Now we learn they were lying. Textbooks at private Islamic schools in northern Virginia say it is permissible for students to kill adulterers and converts from Islam to other faiths. This is according to a federal investigation released this week.

Other passages in the school’s textbooks state that “the Jews conspired against Islam and its people” and that Muslims are permitted to take the lives and property of those deemed “polytheists.” By “polytheists,” they mean Christians.

The passages were found in selected textbooks used during the current school year by the Islamic Saudi Academy, which teaches 900 students in grades k-12 at two campuses in northern Virginia.

The Saudis fund these schools. They believe and teach the most radical form of Islam. Why is the United States allowing these schools on our soil? They are preparing future terrorists and we had better wise-up and shut down these schools.
