Approval Given For The Expansion Of The Islamic Saudi Academy
Post below the fold so as not to distract too much from my Lizzie Borden Post!
At the madrassah's Popes Head Road location in southern Fairfax County. The narrow country lane is a deathtrap.
The site of this branch of the Islamic Saudi Academy was previously that of Fairfax Christian School, which was always denied any requests for expansion and even for rebuilding a small structure which had burned to the ground.
Atlas Shrugs has the videos.
Jihad Watch also has coverage, and the comments section is quite lively. I contributed to the fray at Jihad Watch, of course.

At least the vote for approval wasn't unanimous this time. And a couple of the Board members did go on record with their objections. Previous approvals at the local-government level have always been unanimous.
Last week, Radio Free Dar Al Harb dedicated this edition of the radio show on BTR to discussion of the Islamic Saudi Academy. Yeah, I was there as one of the interviewees.
Regular readers of my posts know that I've been watching the Islamic Saudi Academy for years. In fact, this April 2005 bus accident caused by ISA bus driver Abdelrazeg Abdalla is one of the reaons I jumped into the blogosphere with both feet.
I doubt that this post will be my last regarding the Islamic Saudi Academy. Furthermore, I've heard the law suits against the school are in the works, but I don't know the details.
