Senators Call for Closing of Saudi Academy

A dozen U.S. Senators have demanded that the Secretary of State shut down the Saudi Islamic Academy in Washington because of the refusal of the Saudi officials to make available for inspection the curricula that are taught in the Academy. The Saudi News Agency (WASM) said that members of the Senate demanded that the Department of State follow up on the agreement that the United States and the government of Saudi Arabia made last year on improving the freedom of religion in Saudi Arabia and stopping the export of religious extremism.
It is good to hear that at least some of our leaders are on this case.
