    Recently, the Saudi ambassador in Turkey acknowledged that before the Unite States launched its airstrikes against the so-called Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), the Saudi embassy in Ankara provided the Saudi nationals who previously joined ISIL ranks and later defected and wished to return to home with passports and identification documents. The Saudi embassy also admitted that it housed many repentant former jihadists inside the Saudi compound in Istanbul or rented safe houses for them in downtown Istanbul. As a matter of fact, it seems not so much surprising to hear that a country provides consular services...
  • Virginia Honors 9/11 Mosque

    Political Correctness: The only thing more revolting than building a mosque next to the World Trade Center would be honoring the mosque that helped the 9/11 hijackers. Yet that's just what Virginia has done. Outrageously, the Virginia state legislature has passed a Democrat-sponsored resolution "commending" the notorious 9/11 mosque — Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center — "as an expression of the General Assembly's admiration for the" center. The Saudi Embassy-funded, Muslim Brotherhood-owned mosque is universally known by federal and local law enforcement — and even the media — as a turnstile for terrorists. Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan once worshipped...

    Two women have been rescued from a U.S. diplomatic mansion owned by Saudi Arabia amid concerns they were being kept as domestic slaves. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers raided the villa in McLean, Virginia - which is owned by the Saudi Armed Forces Office and believed to house its defence attaché - on Tuesday night and removed two workers from the Philippines who are suspected to have been the 'victims of domestic servitude'. One woman reportedly tried to flee by squeezing through a gap in the front gate as it was closing.

    Immigration officials are investigating a report of human trafficking at a home owned by Saudi Arabia in northern Virginia. Two women were rescued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers and spokesman Brandon Montgomery said the women - who are from the Philippines - were possible victims of domestic servitude. One woman reportedly tried to flee by squeezing through a gap in the front gate as it was closing. It is not yet clear if the women alerted authorities or if someone else called it in. Fairfax County police were called in to help. 'Homeland Security Investigations DC did encounter two...
  • Saudi compound in Virginia investigated for human trafficking

    Federal authorities have launched an investigation into a Saudi Arabian compound in Northern Virginia over suspicions its residents may be engaging in human trafficking. Federal and local police responded to a call from a house in the D.C. suburb of McLean and found “two potential victims of trafficking” who hailed from the Philippines, Raw Story reported. One of the women tried to run. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the investigation could move sluggishly because of complications from diplomatic immunity rules.

    The U.K. Daily Mail recently claimed that a senior Saudi government official revealed to its sources that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had sent a written warning to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012 about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the suspects accused in the Boston Marathon bombing. But now, the Saudi Arabian embassy in Washington, D.C. is denying the Saudi government warned the United States about Tsarnaev, the Daily Mail reports.

    The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written warning about accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012, long before pressure-cooker blasts killed three and maimed hundreds, according to a senior Saudi government official with direct knowledge of the document. The Saudi warning, the official told MailOnline, was separate from the multiple red flags raised by Russian intelligence in 2011, and was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen. Citing security concerns, the Saudi government also denied an entry visa to the elder Tsarnaev brother in December 2011, when he hoped to...

    The Saudi national who was initially detained and then ruled out as a suspect in the Boston Marathon terrorist attack had been flagged on a terror watch list and was granted a student visa without being properly vetted, sources have told me. A source close to the investigation revealed that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi had been deemed inadmissible under the section of the Immigration and Nationality Act which declares ineligible for a visa – any alien who is engaged in or is likely to engage after entry – in terrorist activity. At least two additional sources have confirmed to me...

    Okaz, the same prominent Saudi newspaper, that published photos of Abdul Rahman Ali Issa Al-Salimi Al-Harbi in the hospital after the Boston marathon bombings, is now reporting that the Saudi national was also visited by the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama during his hospital stay. ... In light of recent reports that Alharbi was scheduled for deportation on ‘national security grounds’, the first lady’s visit takes on much added significance if those reports are true. We already know that the Alharbi clan consists of multiple Al-Qaeda members. This would seem to bolster the claims of scheduled deportation,...

    The dimensions are somewhat smaller, but the pain, fear, and anger are the same. America has again been caught off guard by foreign terrorists seeking to sow destruction and death. Almost 12 years have passed since that “great tragedy,” the attacks of September 11, and the United States has yet again experienced a national tragedy. Albeit the dimensions are somewhat smaller, but the pain, fear, and anger are the same. America has again been caught off guard by foreign terrorists seeking to sow destruction and death.

    After the FBI rescheduled another postponed briefing on the Boston Marathon Massacre for 8 p.m. on Wednesday night -- and then canceled that one, too -- that was it. I was going to give the news circus a rest until morning. Came the dawn I heard that terrorism expert Steven Emerson had dropped a bombshell Wednesday night on Sean Hannity's Fox News program. Emerson reported that Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national first identified as a "person of interest" and then downgraded, like a tropical storm, to "witness," would be deported from the United States "on national security grounds." This,...

    LONDON, Oct 12, 2011 (AFP) - A former chief of Saudi intelligence said Wednesday there was overwhelming evidence that Iran was behind a plot to kill the Saudi ambassador to Washington and must "pay the price". "The burden of proof is overwhelming... and clearly shows official Iranian responsibility for this. Somebody in Iran will have to pay the price, whatever the level of these persons is," Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal told a conference on oil in London. The prince, who has also served as Saudi ambassador to the United States and Britain, said the alleged plan to kill the kingdom's...

    FBI and DEA agents have disrupted a plot to commit a "significant terrorist act in the United States" tied to Iran, federal officials told ABC News today. The officials said the plot included the assassination of the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States, Adel Al-Jubeir, with a bomb and subsequent bomb attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, D.C. Bombings of the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Buenos Aires, Argentina, were also discussed, according to the U.S. officials.

    The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved an extension for the Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA), an Islamic high school in Alexandria, Virginia. The school operates under the authority of the Saudi Arabian government. In 2008, ISA was cited for using textbooks calling for violence against non-Muslims. Fairfax County, a federal agency on religious freedom and the US Senate all urged the State Department to take action regarding ISA's textbooks, but State did not act.[i]ISA claimed to have updated their texts, however, those who reviewed the textbooks were paid by the school.[ii]Numerous ISA graduates have gone on to pursue jihadist activities...

  • Expansion of Islamic Saudi Academy in Virginia Approved, Outraging Opponents

    A controversial Saudi-funded academy that teaches strict adherence to traditional Islamic law has been given the green light to expand its Virginia campus — a decision by local officials that infuriates opponents who say the school's teachings are anti-American. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted 6-4 Monday to grant a zoning exemption to the Islamic Saudi Academy. The officials said the outcome was based strictly on zoning issues, not on what goes on in the school's classrooms. That left some in the community outraged. "How could they ... say they are such fine students? They are fine students but...

    A coalition of concerned citizens is contemplating its next move now that the Fairfax County (Virginia) Board of Supervisors has granted a Saudi-funded Islamic academy a zoning exemption to allow it to expand its facility. The Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force (VAST) had lobbied hard against the move. But on Monday, by a 6-4 vote, the Fairfax County supervisors sided with the Islamic Saudi Academy which had requested a zoning exemption to expand its 34-acre campus to accommodate 200 additional students. While there were some concerns about added traffic problems, the Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force voiced its concerns about the curriculum...

    A Fairfax, Va., school said to be linked to terrorism teachings was given the go-ahead to expand its campus, Monday. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved the Islamic Saudi Acedemy's request by a 6-4 vote. The Saudi-owned college preparatory school is supported by the Saudi government and has been proven to teach Islam's radical Shariah law. Now, Christians say they have had enough. By law, the academy's request to expand is a land use case. "But of course, that ignores the 800 pound gorilla that has come with this land use case," said county supervisor John Foust. Members of...
