Another disingenuous representation by WaPo

Susan Douglass

In an article ostensibly about presentation of Hinduism in textbooks used by Fairfax County Public Schools, Susan Douglass is described as a "world history curriculum consultant who has worked with Fairfax schools." Despite her Western name, Ms. Douglass is a former teacher at ISA and is listed as "Consultant, Researcher/Analyst, Content Developer" for the Council on Islamic Education based in California.

Afeefa Syeed

BTW I am rethinking the "pass" I gave to Afeefa Syeed, who brought in children from a Muslim school in Herndon to give presentations to grade school kids on Ramadan. Turns out that Ms. Syeed is principal of that school, called Al-Fatih Academy, at 730 Jackson Street, Herndon and the children are in fact her charges. Ms. Syeed is also a failed candidate for the Loudon County Board of Supervisors.
