An anguished letter to Northern Virginiastan

We're getting noticed by other residents ...

I recently discovered your blog. Like my father before me, I am a lifelong resident of Fairfax County. I was glad to see your blog, which indicates that you are "on watch" for our area.

Since 9/11, which fortunately my father did not live to see, I have been doing research on my own so as to understand just what were the motives for the terrorist attacks. Well, I found out--by reading Anis Shorrosh, Daniel Pipes, Robert Spencer, Ibn Warraq, Oriana Fallaci, and others; and the motives had nothing to do with what is being taught in our schools and universities today. The truth: muslims, moderate or extreme, intend to make the United States a caliphate.

Below are two items of recent concern in our Northern Virginia area:

1. Are you aware of the volume of materials that CAIR is donating to the Fairfax County Public Library System? Without actively looking, I found two within just the last year, at the Tysons-Pimmitt Regional Branch: (1) "The Servants of Allah" (a book) and (2) PBS's DVD "Islam, Empire of Faith." Both of these have plates indicating CAIR donated the materials. And--no surprise here--both the book and the DVD cast America, and Western Civilization in general, in the worst possible light.

As a taxpayer, I am appalled that our public libraries are accepting materials endorsed by CAIR, which is the equivalent of the Wahabbi Lobby!

Last night, I visited CAIR's website and reviewed their library plan. SUBVERSIVE!!! We are being manipulated. I'd like to see these materials removed from the library system, but don't know how to go about doing so. Perhaps you have access to avenues for such removal.

2. While looking around on the CAIR website, I noticed some information about the Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. Here's a copy and paste of what I found:


On Tuesday, January 25th, 2005, CAIR attended a VA-SCOPE Community Forum with Fairfax County Police Chief David Rohrer and Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Gerry Connolly on law enforcement issues impacting the immigrant communities of Fairfax County at the George Mason Library in Annandale, VA. Local district supervisor Penelope Gross was also present along with several local police officers and representatives from Fairfax County Police Department's Internal Affairs Division and the Herndon Police Department.

The Community Forum was the first in a series of similar events planned by VA-SCOPE, a coalition of VA organizations seeking to improve the relationship between local law enforcement and immigrant communities. During the meeting, representatives from the Muslim, Korean, Vietnamese and Hispanic communities raised questions about the enforcement of a recent VA law that increased the authority of VA law enforcement officers to enforce federal immigration law. Chairman Connolly iterated that Fairfax County police officers are not an arm of Federal Immigration enforcement agencies. Board Member Gross also stressed the county's dedication to diversity while Chief Rohrer stated that his department is looking for ways to do more outreach to various communities, including to various faith communities. Attendees questioned the government officials on the techniques employed by police officers in interacting with non-English speaking community members, and stressed the importance of more cultural awareness training of police officers in dealing with many community issues including domestic violence.
[Northern Virginiastan]Does this mean that police should look the other way in case of wife beating, because the Koran sanctions it under certain circumstances? What about honor killings?
CAIR is pleased to report that several leading local Muslims accepted CAIR's invitation to attend the event and contributed their ideas and questions to the discussion. For more information on future VA-SCOPE activities, please contact us at CAIR at HYPERLINK ""

One additional item here: Have you driven by the Islamic Saudi Academy on Popes Head Road? I had occasion to do so this past summer, when I was out that way for a birthday party. The Academy looks like a fortress now! Nothing like the way it appeared several years ago when it was purchased by the Saudis in the 1980's. Before Saudi acquired this property, this property on Popes Head Road was Fairfax Christian School, 1965-1984 (if I have my dates correct), and it had a very open look. Not so any longer.

I check your blog every day. Keep up the watch!
