Update: Islamic Saudi Academy Director Arrested

Abdullah Al-Shabnan, the director of the Islamic Saudi Academy in Virginia, has been arrested for failing to report the sexual abuse of a child and attempting to "eliminate any traces of the report." If you are still unfamiliar with this radical school, you can either read these posts, or peruse the official report by the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, in which the commission expresses "concern about the promotion of religious intolerance and religion-based violence."

Al-Shabnan was arrested on June 9th, with pretty much zero coverage from the national media. Patrick Poole at PJM detailed the events following a raid on the school by state authorities:

According to a local news report [video] on June 3, the female student reported her claims to her teachers, and a report on the matter was drawn up by the teachers and the school’s principal and submitted to administrators. But when the allegations reached the desk of school director Abdullah Al-Shabnan, he didn’t believe the girl and failed to report the sex abuse claims to law enforcement within the 72 hours required by state law.

Apparently tipped off on a cover-up, law enforcement authorities raided the school on May 23 to seize computers and look for evidence after Al-Shabnan ordered the original report deleted from school computers.

Just three days before the raid, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to renew the academy’s lease of county property, ignoring multiple reports of the school’s promotion of violence and hatred.

Luckily, the locals are having none of it, reportedly protesting outside the school with signs that read "Saudi hate is not an American value" and "Islamic sharia teaches violence and hate." If you ask me, every student taught with those textbooks is suffering a form of child abuse.
