Can a caliphate school keep teaching on Virginia’s public land? Congressional candidate voted yes. Update: Take a poll!

It’s a private school that gets its money from Saudi Arabia, so they can teach whatever they want, right? And if they’re not state-supported, they’re free to use Saudi textbooks that teach stuff like this:

The authors of a 12th-grade text on Quranic interpretation state that apostates (those who convert from Islam), adulterers and people who murder Muslims can be permissibly killed.

More generally, the panel found that the academy textbooks hold the view that the Muslim world was strong when united under a single caliph, the Arabic language and the Sunni creed, and that Muslims have grown weak because of foreign influence and internal divisions.

Well, there’s a wrinkle: it’s a private school, but it’s leasing its land from Fairfax County, Virginia. A month ago Fairfax County’s Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to renew the school’s lease.

I italicized “unanimously” because that means the Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors must have voted for it, and he’s already on my list. His name is Gerry Connolly and as I noted the other day, he wants to keep Fairfax County a welcoming sanctuary for illegal aliens.

And he’s running for Congress, as a Democrat.

Connolly won his primary on Tuesday, and he’ll face Republican Keith Fimian in the general election. I expect the sterling judgment Connolly showed in approving the lease of public land to Wahhabi High will be an issue in the campaign.
If he gets called on it, Connolly can always try saying “Hey, it could be worse. Look at Britain!

UPDATE: LGF links to an MSNBC poll asking whether you think the school should be closed, the textbooks should be amended, or it should be left open because “one way to teach tolerance is to show tolerance”.

Right now common sense is prevailing–in the poll, if not in Northern Virginia–but you can click through and help make it a landslide.
