Still more UK dhimmi follies. “Islamic school raided by police stays open,” by Julie Henry in the Sunday Telegraph, :
The Government has failed to close down a Muslim school that was raided by anti-terror police, despite being advised by Ofsted to deregister it.
More than 100 police carried out a dawn raid at Jameah Islamiyah, a private school near Crowborough in East Sussex, in September.
Officers remained at the site for more than three weeks before the investigation was wound up.
The operation was linked to the earlier arrest of 14 men in London in connection with an alleged terrorist recruitment network. Twelve people were charged and remanded in custody to await trial. No arrests were made in connection with the school.
At the time, the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) said that Ofsted was due to visit the school and, if improvements that were deemed necessary after an earlier inspection in 2005 had not been made, the department would “delete the school from the Register of Independent Schools and shut it down”.
The Sunday Telegraph has obtained a confidential report which shows the school was the subject of a monitoring visit by Ofsted in November and that a report was sent to the DfES recommending the school be deregistered.
However, no action has been taken and the school remains on the Register of Independent schools.
