In 2005, NY-R Senator Charles E. Schumer questioned whether the Islamic Saudi Academy in Alexandria, Virginia, is another example of radical Islamic madrassas funded by and linked to terrorism here and abroad. It had recently been reported that a recent graduate, Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, of the Academy was indicted on charges of providing material support to terrorists and in conspiring to assassinate the President of the United States. Senator Schumer immediately called for an investigation into the funding of the Academy by the Justice Department, and is now urging the Saudi Arabian Ambassador, Prince Bandar, to further disclose the nature and funding of the school.
“We need to know if the Islamic Saudi Academy is another example of the Saudi government turning a blind eye to terrorism. I hope that the ISA is not another madrassa in the United States,” Schumer then stated.
Unflummoxed, Schumer said in his letter to Prince Bandar, “Because it is my understanding that the Islamic Saudi Academy receives a significant portion of its funding and curriculum guidance from your government, I ask for your assistance in fully disclosing the nature of this academywhat does it teach, from where does it receive funding, and to what extent it may be serving as a breeding ground for anti-American sentimentand, possibly, even terrorist activities.”
The letter addressed other instances where the ISA was linked with potential terrorist activities:
- A former comptroller of the ISA, Ismael Selim Elbarasse, has been referred to by authorities as a high-ranking Hamas operative who was arrested in August while videotaping the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and has been implicated in efforts to channel financing to international terrorist activities.
- In March of 2002, ISA graduate Mohammad Osman Idris was charged with lying to a U.S. grand jury investigating whether he and another ISA graduate planned to take part in acts of terror or violence against the State of Israel. The grand jury was investigating whether Idris was attempting to provide key support to Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
- In August, the Free Muslim Coalition Against Terrorism called on the ISA to remove a textbook used to teach first-graders that stated that Judaism and Christianity are false religions.
An excerpt from Hugh Fitzgerald on the nature of this beast, and how we must proceed to win the struggle of our time:
The most horrifying statement in "Fitna" is not any particular menacing and bloodthirsty quote from the Qur'an. Those quotes, and hundreds more like them from Qur'an and Hadith, most visitors to this site already knew about.
No, the most horrifying fact was this: that it 1960 there were 1,500 Muslims in the Netherlands. And in 2004 there were 800,000 (official figures), and today there are more than a million.
This demographic conquest has been discused for more than 30 years, quite openly in the Arab and Muslim world. In 1974 it was the ruler of Algeria, Boumedienne, at the U.N.hardly the place to hide thingswho spoke of how the Arabs and Muslims would conquer Europe "in the wombs" of the Muslim women having 10, 11, 12, 15 children apiece.
But who could have foreseen that all over Europe Muslim immigrants would not only pour in, but take advantage, and then some, of every possible benefit that generous Infidels could and did provide, paid for by other Infidels, and meant to be received by fellow members of that Infidel nation-state who were part of that national community, and loyal to it, but have been taken over, and exploited to the fullest, by Muslim immigrants who, to the extent that they remain true to Islam, cannot conceivably offer loyalty to any Infidel nation-state, its people, or the legal and political institutions of that state which the Shari'a, in letter and in spirit, flatly contradicts.
How much, do you think, are the British spending to monitor these Muslims?
Will the cost rise? Of course it will. It wil go up as the number of Muslims steadily rises. You can pretend otherwise. You can prate all you want about "reform" but you still must explain how it is that the immutable and literal Word of God is to be "reformed," changed, edited, red-pencilled, and how, furthermore, more than a billion quite primitive peoplemade mentally primitive by the habit of mental submission that Islam encourageswill accept such changes to the Qur'an, or the Hadith (in their accepted rankings of autheniticity), or to the details of Muhammad's life recorded in the Sira, or even to the figure of Muhammad, as uswa hasana, al-insan al-kamil, the Perfect Man? How many Muslims would accept anything like the view of Muhammad that the words and acts attributed to him would cause any sane and well-informed non-Muslim to adopt?The "integration" of Muslims is a pipe dream. A few may fall away. A few may convert. These will, always and everywhere, be the morally and intellectually superior souls. But what of the rest, the rest having gigantic families, paid for by the Infidel-financed suicidal generosity? The idea that we buy their allegience when we buy their housing, their meals, their healthcare, their bombs has been proven false over and over again.
The Western world has to halt all Muslim immigration, expel all Muslims who have not managed to acquire citizenship (those willing to jettison, publicly, Islam mayif they are carefully vetted, be allowed to apply to remain.), and then make life not easy but difficult for those remaining, so that many will leave voluntarily. Simply cutting off the malign source of funds for mosques and madrasas and propagandaSaudi Arabia and other Gulf stateswould do much to weaken support for Muslims, at least by ending the work of Western hirelings,and forcing Muslims in the West to pay for their own mosques and madrasas, rather than be supported, as they now are, with money from foreign Muslims, eager to help solidify and spread the presence of Islam in the Bilad al-kufr, the lands of the Infidels.
Demography is destiny.
So we ask in all earnestness, how much closer is the United States government to implementing the rigorous tools and mindset our nation requires for its own survival, than we were in 2005? Answer, not an inch. Why not? Because Saudi Arabia and China finance the largest chunk of our debt and therefore control our pursestrings. We, frankly, are being financially blackmailed, held hostage, and told to shut up and play ball. We must change our national tactics, the direction of our thrust, and the context of our understanding of global politics. We must know our enemies. We must recognize our own limits. Our enemies are playing for keeps. Historical tensions are worsening. So we must be ready to turn back the tide. We must not stumble, for now is the time to stand together as America faces the unrelenting global and national challenges ahead.
