Saudi school in US may be closed to ensure it is not nurturing radicalism

A private Islamic school supported by the Saudi government should be shut down until the US government can ensure the school is not fostering radical Islam, a federal panel recommends. In a report released Thursday, the US Commission on International Religious Freedom broadly criticized what it calls a lack of religious freedom in Saudi society and promotion of religious extremism at Saudi schools. Particular criticism is leveled at the Islamic Saudi Academy, a private school serving nearly 1,000 students in grades K-12 at two campuses in northern Virginia's Fairfax County.
