Wake Forest University’s Radical Imam

When Wake Forest University hired Khalid Griggs in February 2010 to be its first Muslim Assistant Chaplain, President Nathan O. Hatch hailed the “broader dialogue among people of different faith traditions” and the “greater awareness of differing beliefs” that he apparently supposed would flow naturally from the appointment.

Hatch might have been excused for his ignorance at the time, because the Center for Security Policy (CSP, a Washington, D.C. think tank, had not yet published its seminal study on Islamic law (shariah) and the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan). “Shariah: The Threat to America.” Once that work came out in October 2010, though, it is difficult to understand how the president of such a respected American university could have remained so oblivious to the serious implications of allowing an individual like Griggs with openly-publicized links to the Muslim Brotherhood access to Wake Forest students.
Actually, someone with Hatch’s level of professional responsibility might have been expected to demonstrate a better awareness of Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] activities well before 2010: the Holy Land Foundation HAMAS terror funding trial concluded in November 2008 with a unanimous 108-count guilty verdict for the top leadership of this ostensible Islamic “charity” which was found to have channeled millions of dollars to the Islamic terror organization HAMAS, the Gaza branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.
By order of the judge in the case, voluminous documents from that Richardson, TX trial were posted to the Internet precisely for the purpose of educating Americans about the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities in the U.S. A university president, who has been entrusted with the academic formation of thousands of impressionable young minds, has no greater responsibility than to investigate thoroughly the background of those he brings onto his campus.
In the case of Khalid Griggs, Hatch’s failure has been and continues to be egregious. Even a cursory Google search readily turns up the information that Griggs is closely affiliated with the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). Had Hatch done even the minimal homework expected of a college sophomore, he would know that ICNA was included on a Muslim Brotherhood document submitted (unopposed) into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial titled, “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” which identified ICNA as an entity or affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. Further, ICNA was named by the Department of Justice (DoJ), which prosecuted the case, an unindicted co-conspirator.
To make things even worse, it turns out that Wake Forest’s new imam isn’t just “affiliated” with ICNA: he’s the Chairman for the ICNA Council for Social Justice. This means he’s a senior ranking official of an organization the Justice Department named over three years ago as an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror case. (more…)

Dale R. Folwell

N.C. House of Representatives

District 74 -Winston-Salem

(919) 733-5787

A list of legislation I introduced & passed

into law from 2005 – 2009


    • Simplify Building Standards for Pre-K Classes– This bill saves the state and property tax payers money because Pre-K classrooms will not have to be refitted or renovated if they already meet the building standards for Kindergarten classrooms. HB 1031 was passed by the House and Senate in 2009 and signed by the Governor.
    • Schools Notified of Gang Violence- This bill authorizes law enforcement agencies to publish criminal intelligence information pertaining to gang violence and activity to a principal of a school affected by gang activity, when there is imminent danger to students, personnel, or property.  HB 1327 was passed by the House and Senate in 2009 and signed by the Governor.
    • Every Child Ready to Learn- This bill moves the kindergarten entrance age from October 16 to August 31 to help reduce as much as a two year age span among classmates. Such a wide age span often results in significant challenges to students and teachers because of cognitive differences and children being subjected to unnecessary humiliation. North Carolina had one of the “latest” dates in the US, which put our kids at a competitive disadvantage. Elizabeth Weil of the New York Times magazine did a seven page expose’ on this issue.
    • Vertical Drivers Licenses/ Under 21- This bill helps prevent sales of alcohol and tobacco to underage customers by creating a vertical driver’s license issued exclusively for new drivers under age 21.  This legislation was passed in the 2008 session at NO COST TO TAXPAYERS.
    • Nicholas Adkins School Bus Safety– This bill helps to ensure the safety of North Carolina’s school children and aids in reducing the number of fatalities caused each year by using video recording systems to detect and prosecute those who pass stopped school buses. HB 440 was named after Nicholas Adkins, a 16 year-old resident from Rockingham County, who was struck and killed by a driver that passed the “Stop” bus sign and hit Nicholas as he was about to board the bus. Bus Stop Arm Violation- This bill prevents any motorist who is guilty of passing a stopped school bus from receiving a Prayer for Judgment Continuance. And, according to an investigative report by CNN’s Paula Zahn, gives North Carolina the toughest stop arm law in the United States.  Every school day in NC, 2,300 people pass a stopped school bus. That is over 400,000 per year. (more…)
