Saudi Invasion?

War On Terror: The State Department plans to double student visas issued to young Saudi men. This time, it says, they’ll all be vetted for terror ties. Uh-huh.

There are 15,000 Saudi students already in the U.S., many of them here courtesy of a post-9/11 visa deal struck between President Bush and Saudi King Abdullah. The deal was controversial because nearly all the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi, including two who entered the U.S. on student visas.

Now the administration wants to let in twice as many Saudi students, Ambassador Ford Fraker announced this month. Didn’t he didn’t get the memo from the Treasury Department warning that the kingdom is still the world’s financial epicenter for terrorism?

“Saudi Arabia today remains the location where more money is going to terrorism, to Sunni terror groups and the Taliban than any other place in the world,” Treasury official Stuart Levey told the Senate earlier this month.

Fraker also must be oblivious to official reports detailing the promotion of anti-Western jihad in Saudi school textbooks. Despite promises by Riyadh to reform the texts, they still preach hatred and violence against Westerners.

The young Saudi men for whom State hopes to mint new visas may not show up on any terror watch lists. But they’ve been indoctrinated to hate non-Muslims and carry out jihad against them. And America, above all, is the target of that hatred.

Letting 15,000 come amounts to a mass deployment of potential facilitators for terrorists or even future terrorist cells.

In the past, a large number of Saudi students failed to show up for classes, coast to coast, and overstayed their visas. Many so-called students have been caught up in terrorism investigations.

Some on the Hill have called for canceling the Saudi student visa program until they reform their textbooks. This is the right call.

GOP Rep. Sue Myrick, co-founder of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus, also plans to introduce a bill restricting R-1 and R-2 religious visas for Muslim clerics from Saudi Arabia and other countries that don’t allow reciprocal visits by non-Muslim clergy.

Since 9/11, several foreign imams have been prosecuted or deported for soliciting jihad. Meanwhile, Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff warns that al-Qaida is trying to send terrorist muscle here from abroad to carry out an encore attack.

Why are we making it easier for them?

    Dear Congresswoman Myrick,

    As an American who is concerned with the issue of terrorism, I applaud your efforts to prevent radical Islam from infiltrating American society. I wholeheartedly support your “Wake Up America” plan, as well as other initiatives of the Anti-Terrorism Caucus. You bring honor to the title of United States Representative.

    Groups in America such as CAIR and MAS and groups overseas like Hamas and Al-Qaeda need to be shut down for their support and/or perpetration of terrorism. We hope that people recognize this threat to our society, and as well, recognize what you are doing to stop it.

    Please print out, sign, and mail or fax this letter to Congresswoman Myrick at the address / fax above. Feel free to modify the letter as you see fit.

  2. We are hostages and these students are terrorists who can attack us if we move against Saudi Arabia. The Saudis may have insisted on having America itself as hostage in exchange for its support of Bush’s invasion of Iraq.
