Islamic groups hit curriculum at Saudi school - The Washington Times: Metropolitan - August 02, 2004
I had previously noted the Islamic Saudi Academy's decision not to build another campus in Loudon County in the July 8, 2004 posting on Northern Virginiastan. Now comes news that Alexandria lawyer and politician Kamal Nawash and CAIR - of all organizations - are urging ISA to withdraw a textbook from its curriculum. Read Robert Spencer's desconstruction of this effort at Jihad Watch.
The Washington Times notes that Nawash's law firm once represented Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi (AKA Abdurahman Alamoudi) and that Nawash unsuccessfully ran for political office on two occasions. Nawash blamed his most recent political defeat on the attention focused on him through Daniel Pipes' weblog.
