Virginians Oppose Saudi Madrassa Expansion

Story here.

"The Fairfax County government no longer pretends to be fair and impartial in its dealings with residents who oppose the railroading of the ISA expansion through its offices," said James Lafferty, chairman of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force, or VAST. "This is an outrageous effort to stack the deck against the protesting county residents just weeks before the vote on the massive ISA expansion."


He says the county-sponsored Islamic dinner also raises constitutional questions about "separation of church and state."

"No church or synagogue ever got such preferential treatment from the county government," Lafferty argued.


The Saudi school's alumni include Omar Abu Ali, an al-Qaida operative convicted of plotting to assassinate President Bush. Ali graduated valedictorian, and the school proudly published another superlative for him in its yearbook: "Voted Most Likely to be a Martyr," a caption under his photo read.

There's also a connection to a couple of the 9/11 terrorists.

Don't expect the ACLU to oppose the county government's involvement with the madrassa. After all, the ACLU hates and seeks to destroy Christianity, not Islam. Otherwise, they'd screech and scream about "separation of mosque and state", rather than their biggest fetish, the myth of "separation of church and state".
