Panel: Saudi-Run Va. School Promotes Hate
by Eli Lake
The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom is singling out a Saudi-run school in northern Virginia for teaching its students Islamic supremacism.
The bipartisan commission, which obtained copies of the Islamic Saudi Academy's textbooks from a congressional office and other private sources after the State Department's refusal to hand them over, released a summary of its findings yesterday. The move comes ahead of a deadline next month, agreed on by America and Saudi Arabia, for the school to revise its textbooks and delete references that "disparage Muslims or non-Muslims or that promote hatred toward other religions or religious groups."
According to the commission's report, however, the textbooks the academy is using this school year are exhorting Muslims to violence.
