Frank Wolf Motivates State Department

U.S. Representative Frank R. Wolf has called for a thorough investigation of curriculum textbooks being used by the Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA). Wolf said the U.S. Commission in International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) claimed that the textbooks "promote violence and intolerance." To buttress his request, Wolf included a recent report by the Heritage Foundation that stated "ISA is subject to the terms of the Foreign Missions Act" and that it is within the State Department's powers to declare ISA "a foreign mission of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia."

The case of Ahmed Omar Abu Ali is instructive of the dangers of education at ISA. Abu Ali was convicted in 2005 of plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush. Abu Ali graduated as the valedictorian of his class from the Islamic Saudi Academy. The school is run by the Saudi government, the property is under the Saudi government’s control, and the Saudi Ambassador is the school board’s chairman. The USCIRF has previously urged that the school be shut down until its texts (provided by the Saudi government) no longer preach religious intolerance and violence.

Watch this film to see a Saudi priest on the potential risk of Muslims starting to think freely. He says:

"It begins with freedom of thought, it continues with freedom of speech, and it ends up with freedom of belief. ... What they want is very dangerous. ... They want to open a debate whether Islam is true or not."

By the way this film is translated by the excellent group, MEMRI. They watch Islamic sources and translate them so we can know what's going on. What's going on in the Islamic world is mind-blowing.
