Info:
Great Revelations Academy was founded in 2015 by open supporters of Grand Ayatollah Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah. By their own admission, the school’s founders are dedicated to spreading his message. Fadlallah was a supporter of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran and is considered to be a key inspirer of Hezbollah. Some go so far as to describe him as the terrorist group’s “spiritual leader.” Fadlallah supported the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marines barracks in Beirut that killed 241 U.S. Marines (who were serving as peacekeepers) as well as 58 French troops and six civilians. In 2005, he reiterated his support for suicide bombings against Israel. When he died in Lebanon in 2010, Hezbollah called for three days of mourning. Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei sent his condolences;

One of the academy’s founders, Fouad Bayoun, told Arab-American News that one of the purposes of creating the school was to pass along Fadlallah’s teachings to children in America. [The school] follows the same philosophy, mission and vision of Sayed Fadlallah,” said the school’s principal, Sheila Bazzi-Charara. On August 9, 2018, the academy posted an advertisement for an event it was holding with the Qaim Project, an organization led by the academy’s head of the Islamic Studies Department, Sheikh Mohammad Ayad (according to Qaim’s website). The bio states that Ayad studied Islamic Principles and Studies at Hawzat Arrasoul Al-Akram in Lebanon, an institution sponsored by Iran, according to the respected media outlet Al-Monitor;

Ayad’s Qaim Project exalts Hezbollah, the Iranian-sponsored Lebanese terror group, as well as the terrorist group Hamas. Specifically, Ayad exalts the youth members of these two terror groups. Particularly disturbing is the fact that the Qaim Project has a youth program. On the project’s website is an article endorsing the Iranian regime, expressing an anti-American worldview and advocating for a Shiite-Sunni jihadist alliance (allied with Iran) against the West;

The Clarion Project published an expose in September that showed how Abdulghani is a fervent supporter of Hezbollah and the Iranian regime and preaches that Muslims should follow them. On November 9-11, 2017, the academy hosted a series of lectures from Sheikh Amin Rastani, an avowed supporter of the Iranian regime and another student of the regime-friendly religious school in Qom, Iran;
