Arabic Mandated in New York Public Schools is a Step Toward the Islamization of America

I’m all for learning a new language, even Arabic. I have a good friend who is studying Arabic so he can debate with Muslims in their own language. When I was in high school in the 1960s, some students took Russian. It wasn’t mandated. Many Europeans know several languages. English is one of the most prevalent second languages around the world. When my wife and I traveled through China last year, we ran into people from all over the world who spoke English, including many Chinese. There was no need to know how to speak Arabic.

I’m a little suspicious when an upper Manhattan public elementary school mandates that its students study Arabic. I wonder what would have happen if the school had mandated that students learn Hebrew.

Beginning next semester, all 200 second- through fifth-graders at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights will be taught Arabic twice a week, the same amount of time allotted to science and music courses. There's a good chance that Arabic will be mandated in other schools. (Why science isn’t being taught every day is a mystery to me.)

One reason Principal Nicky Kram Rosen selected Arabic — as opposed to more common offerings, such as Spanish or French — is because he claimes it will help the school obtain a prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) standing.

I suspect that the IB program is more about the Islamization of America than anything else. The IB program is a UN/Agenda 21 Trojan Horse. A study of the IB program will show that there is an attempt “to put a ‘more Islamic face’ on the IB curriculum.”

Muslims are pushing Sharia law in the United States and fighting anyone who opposes them. The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) contacted Muslims to contact Kansas Governor Sam Brownback to ask that he not sign a bill that sponsors admitted was designed to stop the equalization of Sharia with our present legal system. The bill had broad legislative support and the governor signed it into law. There’s no doubt that CAIR will take the new legislation to the courts.

According to Angela Jackson, CEO of the Global Language Project, “Arabic has been identified as a critical-need language,” citing students’ future “career trajectories.” A critical need for what? What careers? Americans rarely go to school in Arabic-speaking nations. Arabic-speaking students come to America to get educated, many of whom then go back home to figure out how to bring down America.

The goal of the IB program is to soften up American school children to accept another pluralistic internationalist agenda.

V. I. Lenin may or may not have actually said that “the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them,” but whoever said it understood the foolishness of many American educators, politicians, and liberal do-gooders. Here is a New York elementary school opening the door so the Islamic worldview can walk right and spread their propaganda unhindered.

    What does it take for Americans to recognize an enemy? Like Pakistan and their sentencing of the Dr. who had the intel about Bin Laden. Does anyone really believe Pakistan didn't know his location while they were taking our money hand over fist and pretending to be allies?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/O2G5ZK7O7CCK4SJSRQFL5RKC7U Thomas McCarthy

      Not only did they know but wholeheartedly support his islamist attack on the US. The islamic system is a totalitarian ideology that puts marxism to shame. In this demonic scheme, you've got everyone bowing and saying "prayers" to their satanic moon god and his evil prophet. It's sick because the West does not respect their beliefs but "feels" it must accomodate everyone as equal. The serpent has been welcomed into the nest. And, he's been welcomed in by ideologically brainwashed idiots who make up a large fraction of the global elite. It is really a sick, sick world.

      • Ladd Prier

        Exactly right Thomas. Totalitarianists of a feather flock together. Radical Islam is quite popular in the Muslim-in-chief's office and the czar's grotto.

We should all get together with all other Military Retirees and get a plan of action for WHEN IF! You never hear of any budget cuts for the Congressional Budget do you? Why is their retirement free after only 4 years plus Medical care? Yet they have the audacity to even talk about cutting Military Retirement because it costs the Pentagton too much! What about the everlasting cost over-rides in ALL govt. contracts, Mr Panetta? Meanwhile we are cozying up to Karzai and getting ready to spend more taxpayer bucks to repair his roads and bridges with our own Army Engineers! The same ones the Taliban blew up to kill our guys. Let them rebuild their own roads! and bridges instead of our guys getting their tails shot at while we do it. Let them spend their own bucks to do it! We should clean out the whole mess and throw out all the muslims that are first generation newly arrived. Obama got a bill through behind everyones back and spent 28 million to help Palestinian Hezbollah, several thousand of them,. relocate to this country last year! Yes, the same ones who were shooting rockets into Israel. Lets please get this Chicago gangster and his hoods out of office and out of this country!

        • Krazeehors

          The Taliban is a Muslim sect. Pakistan protects Taliban insurgents who are killing our military men and women.

        • CARLjr

          Using the Taliban as an example of Islam is like using the Westboro Baptist Church as an example of Christianity.

        • Krazeehors

          Sorry, but the Taliban enforces Sharia Law, and IS a muslim-believing group of people. I didn't say they were a "good" example or a "typical" example, but they are just as brutal, they have killed many of our troops in Afghanistan in "jihad," they supported al-qaeda, and helped to hide UBL.
          I know nothing about the Westboro Baptist Church except that they are a bunch of bigoted morons who have corrupted the Word of God and deserve to be driven out of every community they inhabit with tar and feathers.

        • CARLjr

          Now imagine Westboro Baptists had political power and enforced Leviticus law.

          The Taliban are a bunch of bigoted morons who have corrupted the Word of THEIR God. This does not apply to ALL MUSLIMS.

        • Krazeehors

          Sorry, but I disagree. I wouldn't necessarily use the word moron, but to them the quran is the final say and, even though they may have Christian or Jewish or Hindu or other friends of many other religions, they staunchly believe that the INFIDEL who refuses to come to Islam is to be kill1ed, period.

        • CARLjr

          Using the Taliban as an example of Islam is like using the Westboro Baptist Church as an example of Christianity.

          @krazeehors
          I know and have known a few who were killed starting in Iraq thru present. I am a US Navy veteran from first Gulf War, Desert Storm. I have known many who have served and died, including family. I have had family in every war this country has been in since Revolution.
          No one including KUSHIBO can tell me how or what to feel about our ENEMY. Problem is these liberal /Communist /Marxist /progressive Democrats have no clue what the hell their talking about.
          All I pointed out to KUSHIBO was Islam to aribic is Islam to al Qaeda never mentioned muslim vs Christian or any other analogy. But dang some people on here have reading comprehension issues!

        • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

          The topic is about the Arabic language, the native tongue of tens of millions of Christians. In fact, in the US, two-thirds of Arab-Americans are Christian.

          That you would automatically go from Arabic --> Muslim --> terrorist is very telling.

          Have you ever talked with a Muslim? They LOATHE the terrorists. Al Qaeda has killed far more Muslims than non-Muslims.

        • pbenn131

          @kushibo .... I didn't make that analogy you did. I said Islam and al Qaeda are the same. The Pakistan military is mainly Islamic and they are also committing jihad against our military personnel... meaning they--> our military are being killed by --> Pakistani military not all their military just some about 50/50.
          Take a reading comprehension course and read up on our American heritage and look to see how Marxist /Communist /progressives got their start here. Start with president Wilison. By the way Butler thought Pres. Wilson was just mighty friggin' great! Actually Wilson was Hitler's hero. Wilson a progressive democrat a lefty... Butler a nut job

        • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

          No, pbenn131, it is others here making that connection (Arabic --> Muslim --> terrorist).

          Arabic is the language of the enemy. The subject of this post itself is that learning Arabic will lead to Islamization. (Never mind that two-thirds of Arab-Americans are Christian.)

        • CARLjr

          Benefit packages should be taken out of the American workforce all together. Straight salary - buy your own health insurance. That will solve one debate right there.

        • Krazeehors

          What about those who are already receiving it? Who depend on it? Would you ALSO take those benefits/entitlements away? All because LBJ took Social Security off of its protected status and moved it to the General Fund to finance the Vietnam War?

        • CARLjr

          If everyone bought their own health insurance - there would be no quarrel over who gets what treatments (like birth control) No one would have to violate their religious beliefs to pay for it. Health insurance should not be provided by employers. Give employees the cash instead.

        • Krazeehors

          You didn't answer my question.
          What about the people who are already receiving Social Security and Medicare after paying into it for their ENTIRE LIVES????? Would you take this away from them when their lives depend on it, or just institute death panels and let people start dying by the millions?

        • CARLjr

          I am talking about employer supplied benefits, not government supplied. You can still have your Social Security & Medicare. (while they last) I am talking about Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Kaiser, Aetna, Cigna, etc.

          Death panels? really? you didn't get sucked in to that nonsense did you?

        Orrie461, oh the Radicals will start with the politicians, the women will be the first to go, because according to the twisted belief women are not allowed to be seen in public without being escorted by a male relative, not allowed to drive a car, not allowed to go to school and most of all they believe that our women should be made to bow down to their husbands, and their fathers because they are considered chattel and must obey any and all commands given by them. Oh, and besides that they don't have a choice on who they marry.

      I think that it's easier to see the enemy without, but harder to see the enemy within.

    • SFCUSARMYRET

      ES, you must be made aware that in the eyes of this government and it's politicians, WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE are the enemy!! I can't stress this enough... When I was going through public school, second languages were an elective. One half to one third of all Los Angeles students cannot or will not read, write and speak English properly before either dropping out or being sent onto college. BUT, they know enough to fill out the applications (in their own languages) for housing, food, medical, and loans for school (that will NEVER be paid back).
      I personally know (through my marriage) people that have been in this country for 40 years and cannot (refused to learn) speak English because the government finds it easier on them to print everything in 45 different languages! My wife (although not born here) speaks perfect English, has never even been on unemployment let alone government subsidies (on the dole). My wife is offended when in public someone starts to speak spanish to her because they either don't want someone to know what they are saying or are too lazy to speak it in English! She will tell them, "we're in America, speak English". My wife is a VERY proud American. More so than the do-gooder libtards we have in offices across the land.
      Before you know it, Arabic will be primary and English will be secondary. It's what they are shooting for and it can happen within a generation!

      • jime

        I find myself in the same reality. Real Americans, Hispanic or otherwise speak English. The rest are a parasitic infestation we cannot afford ! NO English, NO public assistance period. If you need to se habla go back home, wherever that is.
        If you want my help ask in English or do without. NO Exceptions!

      • John W. (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

        Sarg, I am also married to a fine lady that was not born here, she is Japanese and she speaks better English, her second language, than I do and I was born here. We've been married now for almost 42 years and she hates it when she hears someone speaking in another language when she might know that they were probably born here. We're not racist but do believe that if your are living here in America you should at least speak English in public. Its OK to speak another language at home, which she does with her friends, but when in public speak like the natives do (ENGLISH). I'm trying to learn Japanese so that I can tell her how much I love her and need her in her own language.

        US Combat Vet: '68-'69 Vietnam with A Co, 228th Avn. Bn., 1st Cavalry Division (AM) and then again in '91 Desert Storm with the USAF (activated from the Ida Air Guard) at Nelis AFB (Honor Guard Detachment).

          Thank you so very, very much for your distinguished service to this country, sir!!! I, too, am a veteran (USAF -- Grenada; post Korean truce, 1980-81); and I would die for my country still.
          I believe that English should be the language of the United States. Second, third and fourth languages are OK, but English should always come FIRST.
          That said, as a Christian woman, an American who believes in all of the freedoms our brave men and women fought for, I simply cannot understand all of the hatred people exhibit toward each other -- on both sides of the spectrum -- especially when I look at the graves of all the people who have died for those freedoms.
          I also cannot understand why so many people use the Bible to justify their viewpoints, such as the one from Ephesians that says (among other things) "wives, submit to your husbands." When you read the ENTIRE passage, it says a WHOLE LOT MORE than that, but people continue to take it out of context to justify their sick perversions and prejudices. The entire passage is one of the most beautiful explanations of what God wants a husband and wife to be to each other and to the church and the world.
          Or, how atheists justify their atheism by taking the Bible out of context. It seems that they know the Bible (as literature) but have never read it as an historical and spiritual work, or prayed before they began to read as God instructed.
          Jesus said, love one another, but on this Memorial Day Sunday and Pentecost Sunday, we should al remember that FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE!!

          I,too, am a veteran (wwII) and never thought I'd see our country in the shape it is now. After the war i went to college and then became a high school English teacher. My experience showed that grade schools on the whole need to do a better job of teaching students how to speak and write English. Teaching them Arabic is foolishness. While I am sounding off, I might add that it irritates me no end to make a phone call to a business and be told to punch 1 for English and 2 for Spanish. If someone is going to immigrate here, he/she should learn English.

        One of our local high schools has a small independent high school in it called a Center for Global Studies. Students from anywhere in the county can go there and learn Arabic, Chinese or Japanese along with many other courses. The rest of the students have a normal curriculum.

        Arabic is not an easy language to learn and judging by the way most students barely pass Spanish I, I suspect that it will not be nearly as successful as they hope. And the CIA can use more people to help troll the various terrorist websites.

    • Bigolfascist

      It is??? Why does every 7-11 have signs in English and Spanish on their entrances? In the Charolette, NC area the DMV, Vehicle Registration Offices---and about every other government office has bilingual signs, and Spanish versions of the driver exam. Quite a few businesses also have bilingual signs, and just about all grocery stores. All the fast food restaurants do. Same with the state I left, Virginia, which even provided translators in public offices. We are a bilingual nation, but it will never be declared so officially. Eventually the bilingual signs will have the Spanish text on the top in large letters and the English text below it. All we are doing is accommodating them, and making them feel more comfortable.

      BTW I speak several languages myself and have traveled through most of Western Europe and parts of the Mideast. I didn't expect everyone to accommodate me in my native language. I tried to at least learn some phrases to show I was trying. I have encountered four generations of non-English speakers in the States, and not just Hispanic families. Forget the melting pot. English speakers will soon be "what's for supper", just as it is happening in most of Western Europe.

We need to be loud and FIRM!! Remind those in congress that this country is NOT a democracy, but instead a REPUBLIC. That word means something!!! I want my representatives to start using that word. I want to correct them each time they use the word "democracy". The conversation needs to change. Start with this one word and watch it grow!!!

      Mr. Tim, the regular "American Joe" hasn't let this happen. Look back into the past, remember those hippies from the 60's and 70's? Well, they are now lawyers, holding public office and professors. THEY are forcing this muslim agenda (21) down American throats! Have you heard the dribble that comes from these "institutes of higher learning"?
      The votes for this upcoming presidential election are to be counted in Spain by a company owned by George Soros!! WTF... HOW do we as Americans let this happen?? Better yet, how does our own government let this happen??? I'll tell you how, the American sheeple have lost control of their own government. Yes there are some of us that will stand up but as in the case of too many others, any opposition that stands up to this "regime" have had their lives ruined, been marked with the scarlet letter "A" (for American) or have mysteriously died!
      The corruption in todays society is rampamnt. It is not even hidden anymore, Obama is blatant about it with his Czar's and end runs around Congress (who are the biggest bunch of wussies in modern history) and they, we let them do it!!! Where are the protests against all of this? Where is the Tea party now? Where are the Republicans (Boehner) that have SWORN to defend us?? They all cowar behind their lavish life style and their retirements knowing that if they speak out, it is all in jeapardy. The only ones who will save us now are the "regular American Joe's", and our veterans who will fight to the end!

        Don't knock the students for doing drugs. How many of their teachers were doing drugs when they should have been learning how to teach. We, as a society, and the NEA in particular are letting the current generation of students down. True, many aren't there to learn. Those who are have a poor resource. Obama sends his kids to Sidwell Friends. But don't allow vouchers so those of less income can send their kids there. And, don't allow charter schools that compete with the cushy home of the NEA. Yea, we've got a certain number of students who could care less but... we owe more to those who want to learn. I'd guess most of those entering college want/wanted to learn. Sincerely, Robert H. Galloway

        • RobfromVA

          My wife is a non-union school teacher in VA. What most people don't seem to understand is there are 3rd and 4th generation welfare kids whose parents and grand parents quit school and have no appreciation for anything but a check from the government, hence they have more kids they care nothing for. JBlame the teachers if you wish but how do you teach kids whose only goal is to be just like their welfare parents? Who needs an education if you get a check from the givernment every month I feel we should instead blame the government for creating the situation!

Yes they make alot of money, BUT HOW MANY POOR PEOPLE are creating JOBS ?

          No Carl I agree with cyberhacker, we have enough problems in this country right now with out allowing this , the most violent of all religions, to be in our country. Read the quaran it states right in black and white : all those who do not believe in allah are to be called INFIDELS, and if they cannnot be to come to allah, then kill the infidels, sounds like a great religion to have in our country doesn`t it, and besides islam is not just a religion it is a politico-social-religious organization, that states: sharia law must be the only law in the world, and all other law is to be secondary to islam. So according to our constitution,[which obummer and hos minions are using for toilet paper] sharia is an attempt to overthrow our government, and that is a treasonable offense, that is punishable by death. Read the quaran, and go to a website called unholy quotes from the quaran....Everybody please educate yourself on this, the biggest terror plot going in our country.

        • dondehoff

          Boroman2002, While not the most scholarly comment, you are 110% accurate in what you say. Islam is the gravest issue facing the U.S. since our civil war. Few understand that Islam covers ALL facets of life, from how to brush one's teeth to which hand to use in perfoming one's "daily necessities". The Qur'an, the "unchangable spoken word", was compiled many years after Muhammad's death, by a "committee" collecting information from data recorded in several dialects, on palm leaves, clay tablets, stones, bones, leather, etc, and from memories, passed down through the generations. Some of the "found" and recited revelations were either edited or ommitted from the final document, with "mere mortals" making decisions as to what would and what would not be included. Then, like in the compilation of all religous documents, there were many copy and recopy errors and intentional and unintentional "changes"--all resulting in the "accurate, spoken word" of their God. The final "unchanged document", has no chronology, and contains undated, randomly placed "abrogrations", that make the final document undeceipherable, even by the most learned Muslims. That is evidenced by the reams upon reams of official supporting documents over many years , attempting to clarify what their Holy Book means---which, due to their different findings, make the document that more unreadable. To further complicate the issue, the Qur'an contains revelations that prohibit even discussing the validity of the document, under penalty of death. That same penalty applies if a Muslim abandons any facet of the Islamic Faith---both to me, appear "ungodly" and not in keeping with a God who can do anything and everything---and we are teaching these unfounded and illogical concepts to children?

        • Phydeux

          You do realize that the countries most restrictive of religious freedoms are controlled by islam? Like many, you mistake islam for a benign religion .... It is NOT! Islam is an ideology that doesn't allow for any other ideology. Study their concepts of 'taqiyya', 'dhimmitude', and 'female circumcision', Research their 12th imam, and how their view of Christianity and Judaism has evolved. Research muhammad's background ... what he was involved in before becomming a 'prophet'. Research the muslim brotherhood. In short, gain a clue before you spew'.

        • CARLjr

          This is where you misunderstand. I understand that across the world many are under Islam RULE. That some countries DO restrict religious beliefs. However, this is the United States, and HERE you have the right to practice ANY religion. It is a fundamental right of all Americans. It does not matter what their ideology says at all. They have the RIGHT to believe it.

        • Phydeux

          A great example of 'taqiyya' Jr! To claim that islam is a benign religion is simply untrue, and unsupportable. It is a theocracy, an ideology which, when fully practiced, implements sharia law. Sharia law is completely contrary to those freedoms you make a point of using in islam's defense. I agree that people should be allowed to practice their religious beliefs ... unless the practice of those beliefs are in opposition to the freedoms guaranteed by the constitution, or to existing laws. Freedom of religion does not allow practitioners to violate the civil rights of others. Honor killings, polygamy, attacking someone who disrespects muhammad, mutilating little girls ought not be protected under the guise of religious freedom; yet that is what you seem to be espousing.

        • CARLjr

          no. I agree with you there.

        • StopObama2012

          More ignorance, Phydeux, of the real world. Historically the most restrictive of religious freedoms are nations controlled by communists (i.e think here the old USSR, China and North Korea) and while Indonesia is the world's largest islamic nation they allow religious freedom. Please follow your own advise and gain a clue before you spew.

        • Phydeux

          I was thinking of Saudi Arabia, where they destroy any Christian literature brought in by foreigners, and Iran, where they recently condemned a Christian minister to death, then imprisoned his defense attorney. You make a good point about the USSR and China, except their reasons had nothing to do with the state religion, and everything to do with prohibiting people from gathering. On the other hand, islamic nations only prosecute non-islam religions. .... kind of a different concept.

          So, do your checks come from the muslim brotherhood, or C.A.I.R.? .... or directly from obama himself? .... and do you get paid more when you are able to use 'xenophobe' in a sentence?

I'm clueless as many of those who are posting here will no doubt claim to be Christians but live in fear of Islam. Sure, John, I just don't get it.

        • Phydeux

          No ... you are clueless because, apparently, you have not made the effort to inform yourself as to what islam is. You have not researched their ideology. You prefer to parrot the politically correct diatribe and not to understand their ideology. The very fact that you scoff the the influence of that '0.2%' after being informed that arabic study is being made mandatory in a public school in order to achieve some coveted recognition demonstrates your cluelessness,

        • CARLjr

          Phydeaux - first- this is a foreign language class, not a course in religious studies. Second, it is not mandatory. It will be offered to all students but it is optional. Third, you do not need to know anything about Islam to know that Americans have the right to practice it. I may be ignorant or completely disagree with the ideology of Scientologists, but they have the right to believe it. It's the first thing in the Bill of Rights.

        • Phydeux

          Did you even read the article? ... Or was it just a politically correct automatic response to immediately jump to the defense of something you don't understand? From the article: '
          Beginning next semester, all 200 second- through fifth-graders at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights will be taught Arabic twice a week'
          In fact, it will be a required class, twice a week. You claim that Americans have the right to practice sharia; so, according to you, honor killings should be allowed? Female circumcision (genital mutilation) should be allowed to be practiced on young girls? Polygamy should be allowed? Killing your children for converting to another religion should be condoned? The truth is that islam is completely contrary to our constitutional republic, and anathema to personal freedoms. You really should take the time to research something before attempting to defend it.

        • StopObama2012

          "just a politically correct" - What a hoot! In this case it's better for Carljr to be correct than to give in your irrational Islamphobic argument that one school teaching Arabic means Muslims are taking over America. Wise up and realize that even the U.S. military teaches Arabic and is in fact in need of interpreters. Isn't actually better to understand a people's language for effective communication than to respond in fear of the other?

        • CARLjr

          you are right about the first amendment not protecting religious practices that infringe on the rights or safety of others.

          @Carljr First of all, Islam is being taught in public schools, & our kids are taught that Islam is good, Christianity is bad. I want to know WHY the separation of church & state hate mongers aren't up in arms about it? Muslims are allowed to pray in the hallways of public schools, plus in Ca. last year, they had a jihad for the students, & all were commanded to take Islamic names, plus come dressed in Islamic garb. AND the parents were told they had NO say so in it. For the LIFE of me, I can't understand what part of 'Kill the Infidels' you liberals don't understand. For EVERYBODY will be forced to either convert to Islam,or be executed, or enslaved. Teaching our young kids their language is just the start. Why do you think homosexuals want to be able to teach our kids about homosexuality? Because if you start when a child is young, by the time that child is grown, he will be totally brainwashed. And, the President is one of them, & that's why we're in the mess we're in. Muslims are out to destroy America, thereby gaining paradise, they hope.

          Seraphima, you are undoubtedly correct ... but it is my opinion that He expects the rest of us to wake up, pull our heads out of the sand, and take a stand. Those who continue to apologize, defend, and minimize the threat posed by islam, are at best lukewarm.

          AppraisHer-
          1. Arabic is closely associated with the religion of Islam because the Qur'an is written in the language, but it is nevertheless also spoken by Arab Christians, Mizrahi Jews and Iraqi Mandaeans. Most of the world's Muslims do not speak Arabic as their native language but many can read the Quranic script and recite the Qur'an.
          2. check some other sources. New York Times-" School officials said that while the lessons will be offered to all students, it is not mandatory."
          3. They are?
          4. I have not used the word "jingolism" - you are confusing me with StopObama2012
          5. I also did not call you ignorant. please double check who you are attacking.

          Mr. Ed - all 24 posts are identical. this is not censorship, just making this thread easier to read. the first post is unhidden and readable. Sorry to set off your censor alarm.

        • blondejustice1

          Scientologists are NOT trying to shove their Sharia law down our throats and bombing and hurting people all over the globe. Let the private schools offer that course, because my taxes aren't paying for their curriculum. The public should have a right to vote on what is taught in our schools. It's their children that are being brainwashed.

        • StopObama2012

          Sorry, Phydeux, I can assure you that I have a much better idea of what Islam is then you in your xenophobic, jingoistic, fascist right-wing media misinformation and irrationalistic fear that one NYC school allowing Arabic to be taught means that 0.2% of the population is taking over control of the U.S.A. First, not all Muslims in the world speak Arabic. Second, not all Arabic speaking people are Muslims.

        • Phydeux

          Wow, you can use polysyllabic words in a sentence! But, apparently, you have a hard time understanding English. The point i was making is that those 0.2% appear to have an unproportional influence. Why does teaching arabic accord kudos to the school, while French, Spanish, Russian, etc., does not?

          You also appear to attack anyone who disagrees with your nonsense as being 'xenophobic', 'irrational', or a 'fascist' - and apparently your verbage impresses at least carlJr, but not anyone else who has informed themselves as to what islam is; and how it views non-believers .... or treats anyone deemed as disrespectful towards muhammad.

          I don't mind so much as being referred to as a 'jingoist' because i do believe in 'America First', and don't have a problem with being ridiculed for being a patriot.

          Where do i go to find 'right-wing misinformation', and can you please give me some examples so i can make 'rational' judgements?

        • StopObama2012

          I'm sorry, Phydeux, you're as dense, ignorant and void of rational arguments as I thought you were. First, teaching Arabic does not preclude teaching other languages so your argument represent a clear removal from rational thought. Second, using the word xenophobe to describe folks like yourself is an accurate use of the English language not a personal attack. If as they say - the shoe fits...Third, you haven't informed yourself as to what Islam is, you apparently very little knowledge of that which you rail against or the world in which we actually live in your jingoism. Are you aware of the many different sects within Islam? Apparently not as you paint with your broad xenophobic brush. Fourth, you are not a patriot but simply fascist as you live in your fear of the other. Finally, get outside and travel the world to understand it if you want to get beyond your 'right-wing misinformation' like this blog. Are there some Muslims who seek to bring harm to America? No doubt - 9-11 attest to this fact. Do all Muslims, as you think, fit this category - absolutely not. Many Muslims hate the radicals and think they follow a very twisted understanding of the Islamic faith. Many Muslims are hardworking Americans who love this nation as much as you claim to. Many Muslims in the world want nothing more than to live in peace and honor the five pillars of their religion. When hateful ignorant Americans like you group all Muslims together, respond in fear to teaching Arabic, and claim Islam isn't a religion it serves no good purpose toward building bridges of understanding with people of a different culture, especially those who have come here seeking a better life.

        • Phydeux

          Do you even read people's posts before attacking them? .... or is it that you simply are unable to grasp a concept. I never tried to make a point that teaching arabic precluded the teaching of other languages; only that teaching of arabic is somehow awarded by the international community, whereas the teaching of other languages is not. I also pointed out that studying arabic was being made mandatory in that school which was not the case for any of the other languages .... i would hazard a guess that Spanish would be a more useful language in New York than arabic. And finally, you will not find the disparagement of Muslims in any of my comments, only the disparagement of islam, sharia, the muslim brotherhood, and C.A.I.R.

          As far as building bridges goes; i would find it difficult to trust any bridge built with those for whom 'taqiyya' is an acceptable practice as long as it furthers their cause.

          So you obviously have not read my comments, or you are too feeble minded to understand them and therefore the best rebuttal you are able to come up with is name calling.
          By the way, i have been around the world a couple of times, spent a lot of time in Europe, Central & South America, and Japan; but you are correct in that i have never visited the middle east (have never had any desire to), though i do have friends that have spent alot of time there ... but i do need to get out more.

        • StopObama2012

          Perhaps, Pheydeux, if you actually read what you write before spewing your xenophobia I wouldn't need to keep pointing out how misinformed you truly are. Let me remind you what you wrote: "Why does teaching arabic accord kudos to the school, while French, Spanish, Russian, etc., does not?" First, no one is according Ps368 kudos for teaching Arabic but rather insisting that it is there right to do so, a right you want to deny them in your xenophobia. Second you conclude that a school of 233 students in upper NYC that is only 10% white, iwho choses to teach Arabic is somehow indictive of a Islamic pandemic of the 0.2% taking over America and therefore deserving of your xenophobic rants but not entitled to 1st Amendment rights. Rather in your uninformed opionion they should be forced to teach only white European languages. Yup, Xenophobia epitomized. Third, your limited global exposure, and we're not talking vacation here, misses the fact that the Middle East is only one region of the world where Muslims call home. In your overt xenophobia you think all Muslims are the same and therefore should be accorded no Constitutional rights even if they are legal citizens because they are Muslims. Such ignorance in today's world is one of the reasons why America is failing so badly. But it's really not your fault - it's the dumbing down of America by Liberals you've fallen victim to. Good night, Phydeux, and I hope you come to realize the error of your ways. Maybe go visit a mosque and actually befriend some Muslims so you won't be so glaringly ignorant.

        • Phydeux

          More tedium.
          You and many like you assume that you can make false statements like:
          'no one is according Ps368 kudos for teaching Arabic but rather insisting that it is there right to do so, a right you want to deny them in your xenophobia.' .... (i assume you meant "'their' right".)
          My comment being referred to was:
          'I never tried to make a point that teaching arabic precluded the teaching of other languages; only that teaching of arabic is somehow awarded by the international community, whereas the teaching of other languages is not. I also pointed out that studying arabic was being made mandatory in that school ....
          according to the article:
          "One reason Principal Nicky Kram Rosen selected Arabic — as opposed to more common offerings, such as Spanish or French — is because he claimes it will help the school obtain a prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) standing."
          What does that statement mean on your planet?

        • StopObama2012

          and more nonsensical claptrap from Phyneux
          That statements means on this planet earth that your writer needs to fact check since Spanish is already offered at the school, and I don't draw sweeping generalizations about a people because a principle of one small school decides to offer Arabic to his students like you do in your xenophobia and think that by offering Arabic that 0.2% of the Muslim population are deserving of my hatred and fear or taking over the country. In fact, in 2001 under President Bush the State Department made the learning of Arabic a priority because of the growing influence of Arabs in all sectors of global relations. The point has less to do with kudos than it has to do with the Constitutional rigths you and others here want to deny US citizens because of their religion. Now I hope you will go find a clue. Now go have a happy Memorial Day and think about how foolish you've been this evening.

          I think being a xenophobe concerning Muslims coming into this country is understandable especially when their so-called holy book teaches them they must kill or enslave the infidels, or risk the wrath of Allah. I suppose you agree with the government that the Fort Hood murderer who killed his fellow soldiers in cold blood had nothing to do with religion it's the Political Correct Fools like you that is one of the main reasons this country has gone to hell. You should remove Stop use Go it would fit your views much more.

          There have been terrible atrocities.

          These atrocities do happen against Christians by people who profess: Islam made me do it! Problem about everyone wanting freedom is that so many of these freedom claimers only want freedom for themselves and their band as shown and explained by the atrocities!
          The Dalai Lama is correct! The Dalai Lama also had to flee his native country of Tibet or be killed! This high Lama of the yellow branch of Tibetan Buddhisam still lives in exile and I understand still has his Noble Peace Prize.

          They aren't being forced. It's not mandatory.

          Nor is the language useless, it being an official language of 26 countries on two continents and the fifth most-spoken language in the world, including tens of millions of Christians.

          Indonesia, by the way, is not an Arabic-speaking country. Nor Pakistan or Iran.

          You can assure us? Then every thing is fine, right? 911 didn't happen, bombings around the world didn't happen, cigarettes for money for Jihadists (mujahid) didn't happen, Ft. Hood murders of fellow military didn't happen, the grenade lobed into a tent by a Muslim in the US Army ranks didn't happen, FBI mandatory training for Muslim sensitivity didn't happen and continues, encroachment into every aspect of US Government didn't happen and continues, Muslims screaming for special Shiraha rights for them and theirs, didn't and isn't happening and continues, their belief in their superiority isn't real and is ever strong and growing isn't happening and continues! YES--we need your assurances and lull-a-bye baby talk, BS, and your frothing at the mouth isn't happening and continues.
          What is this statement: About not all Muslims speak Arabic and not all Arabic speaking people are Muslims. Are you attempting to make some truth? Not all ants are red! Not all cats are house cats! Not all people are one color! Not all Christians speak English!
          All Muslims, though, are taught that if nothing can make an infidel convert to Islam then their death at your hands is sanctioned by Mohamed!

        • StopObama2012

          What I can assure you of, Jimbob, is that your xenophobia is based on the fact that your are badly misinformed and reflects a great amount of irrational fear. But nonetheless we should just arrest all Muslims and throw these towellheads into prisons camps like the U.S. did with those nasty Jappers during WWII because irrational fear is the American way.
          "What is this statement: About not all Muslims speak Arabic and not all Arabic speaking people are Muslims. Are you attempting to make some truth?" First, maybe you need to learn where to put a colon. Second, it's about a simple fact that goes to the article in question concerning a school teaching Arabic. Note that the school is teaching Arabic and not Islam. But I'm sure in your xenophobia that's a distinction that is beyond your closed mind to absorb.
          And finally, no, not all Muslims are taught that "if nothing can make an infidel convert to Islam then their death at your hands is sanctioned by Mohamed!" That's only what you've been taught by the radical Rightwing fearmongers you ignorantly allow inside your head. In fact, Muslims and Christians live side by side in many places of the world, cooperate with one another, and have for centuries.
          Now, please open that pea-sized brain of yours so you stop displaying such a profound foolishness.

          Phydeux Obama2012 seems to support what is going on with these Muslims groups in this country i don't think he is that ignorant but he is using that StopObama name to throw us off. i have studied this so-called religion for a good twelve years and i know what is going on and that their goal is to take over this country, and with the help of fools like Obama2012 they will succeed if people like us don't stop them. Our fine government ruled on the Fort Hood murdering piece of dung that it wasn't a religious crime,it was a hate crime pure and simple, but they want this piece of garbage not to get what he deserves, but one good thing he won't be able to walk and not kill anymore for his god Satan.

        • Phydeux

          I believe that you are correct. The handle 'StopObama' is simply taqiyya in action. I don't believe he is ignorant, but rather an apologist or activist with an agenda to further islam using any misinformation or derogatory attacks he thinks will further his cause. Anyone who tries to portray islam as a peaceful religion is either misinformed, or attempting to spread its infection. You can tell the ones with an agenda as they continually refer to heinous acts of islam as isolated incidents, no matter how widespread and common they are, and ridicule those of us who dare to speak out against it. It's refreshing to realize that there are still some who won't be intimidated .... The more i hear things like that judge martin's dismissal of assault charges against a man who attacked and beat another person simply for disrespecting muhammad, the more convinced i am that islam has no place in the US, and especially not in our courts or government .... it's an infection we have to continually ward against.

          Im glad to see someone on here smart enough to use the word Taqiyya. I wrote a post about this threat and all i got back was something i learned in the fith grade which was about Muslim Pirates. This is a new and much more dangerous threat, they weren't in our government back then. If you aren't familiar with this site go to Shariah The Threat .org I have been onto these insidious monsters for about thirteen years, i have seen all the inroads they have made into our country and government, and when someone tells me we have went through this before it really angers me.I have posted and posted on here and i feel like i'm beating a dead mule. I warned people about Obama but they wouldn't believe me, even John reach across the aisle McCain told us all what a good guy Obama is, i wonder if he still thinks so.

        • Phydeux

          Yeah, they don't even try very hard to hide anymore; counting on people like obama2012 and others of that ilk to rationalize/excuse their actions. C.A.I.R. and the muslim brotherhood are obvious in their agenda, but it's politically incorrect to question their conduct.

          Thanks for the URL reference, i'll take advantage .... Another good reference is jihadwatch dot org ....

          If everyone would worry less about possibly offending islam, and more about informing themselves, this would be a better planet ..... after all, how many fatwas can they issue?

          i agree with you about the muslim threat, however you are wrong on one point. We have faced exactly this before by exactly these same people. Americas first war was fought during Jeffersons presidency and was against the Barbury Pirates who were muslims imposing thier faith through brutality apon the infidels. Which prompeted Jefferson to send a contingent of warships to dipatch them. The Barbury wars are referenced in the line from the Marine song "from the halls of Montezuma to the WALLS OF TRIPOLI."

          Actually, we have faced this. The marines were established to defeat Arabic pirates in the 18th century, as in, "from the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli". Those pirates liked to used their swords to behead people, thus the term, "leathernecks", which refers to the leather collars those marines wore to protect their necks when engaging those pirates. We defeated them then, and we can again. It's just a little harder when one of them occupies the White House.

I remember that once Americans could actually reason for themselves but even then they were too few in number. But today with folks like you believing all the right-wing propaganda concerning Muslim influence it's obvious that such gross inability to reason has led to fear of the other, which was logically the only result possible.

  • Bay0Wulf

    Arabic? Arabic suddenly becomes a required language? Based on what? Based on which dialect? Suddenly a relatively insignificant speck of the world speaking a relatively insignificant language is given some sort of importance in terms of language courses in an "elementary" school. It is significant to me that, not only did some low level local school bureaucrat decide to put this into the curriculum but that the parents and School Board have not squashed this.

    Perhaps they are thinking that these students may one day grow up to be CIA or NSA traffic analysts and will be able to get jobs translating Arabic phone calls?

    • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

      First off, it's not required.

      Second, it's not a "relatively insignificant" language. There are about as many Arabic speakers as there are residents of the United States (~310 million).

      After Mandarin, Spanish, English, and Hindi-Urdu, it's the fifth most spoken language in the world, official language of twenty-six countries in Africa and Asia. Some of them, despite being mostly Muslim, are reasonably good friends with the US. I think the Libyans in particular are going to be fast friends with the US for the next generation at least.

      And let's say you think most/all Arab-speaking countries are the enemy, wouldn't it be good to have some people in America skilled in the language of one's adversaries? Some of us learn Farsi for the same reason. (I speak Korean so I can figure out what the North Koreans are up to).

    • john811c

    What is wrong with the parents in New York to allow this. If they brought that to the schools that our kids go to I would be right there fighting it.

    Don't worry!!! Our students are so intelligent and well taught and their grades reflect almost 100% on any and all achievement test.
    They need a challenge . . . . a new language challenge. Arabic, yeah, that's it. We'll teach our students the language of the middle east political sluts. The language of suicide murderers, the language used by the pilots of the commercial planes that flew into the World Trade Center . . . . the language of Osama Bin Laden, and Saddam Hussein, and possibly the Barrack of Hussein Obama.
    The question of who will teach this new language, Arabic, and will they be wearing burkas occurs to me.
    What "history" will be taught while explaining the beginnings of Arabic? Who's point of historical perspective will the students get?
    I vote a big fat NO . . . . NO to teaching (proselytizing) our innocent children . . . . . No to the violent people of Islam, NO to teaching Arabic.

    We've only got 5 short months to go and then this disgusting regime will be out. A regime that is totalitarian socialistic from top to bottom. This is going to be the biggest landslide in American political history, folks. Bigger than Reagan/Carter and Reagan/Mondale. And, neither Carter nor Mondale were Marxist/Socialists. This guy is going to be nothing short of humiliated at the polls, believe me.

  • karolh

    This probably was passed without parents knowledge. If you notice when anything like this occurs, the public finds out after the fact, making us the last to know. Think about this, it is really up to the people to stop this sort of thing from happening. When we raise enough stink, the politicians back off. They want and need our votes. The people of NY need to get a movement going and put a stop to this. Best place to start is the local politicians, Board of Education and pull their kids out of public school. Parents can home school in this country and the educational materials can be purchased on the internet, from local book stores and/or be provided by the BD of Education. Everytime this crap comes up, we need to band together, let them know that the citizens of this country will not stand for anymore of this. This is Our country, it is the USA, not Iran and the Islamic countries certianly do not consider our laws or anything else if our citizens are in their countries. If they come here, they live by laws, speak our language and learn to abide with us according to our customs, if not, leave or go some place else. If they take over our country, it is our fault for not standing up for ourselves. Kansas is standing up and I am sure more states will follow. Knowing in advance what their objective is, Arabic should not even be offered as an elective in our schools. If someone wants to learn it, they can take a private course. On the other hand, it might not be a bad idea if we understood what they were saying, it could prove to be to our benefit, however, that is the parents and students decision to make. Not the school board or government. They are, after all, employeed by us, the tax payers, we do not work for them.

      karolh: With regard to your statement, "educational materials can be purchased on the internet, from local bookstores and/or be provided by the BD of Education."
      Were you aware that many of the history textbooks used in our grade schools and highschools have been written by Muslims who have infiltrated the publishing industry and contain lies about Islam that are presented as facts? These history texts are nothing less that tools for proselytizing for Islam.
      You can find a list of these texts at http://www.actforamerica.org.

      • karolh

        Nelson, thanks for the information. I was aware of this problem, did not know where to find a list. I took my 13 yr. old out of school over this type of thing. I checked out many websites before I purchased our materials from Alpha Omega, which is a Christian business. Actually, the head of our Home School Program recommeded Alpha, he keeps a current list of companies that produce truthful materials our children should be learning. I also have hired a part time tutor that also is a christian. It is possible for us to make a difference if we all follow the same example, review each candidate before we vote and stay on top of the BD of Education. I first learned of these problems when I received information out of Texas. I asked my high school grandson about his US History class and he did not have US History. That lead me to check on what our local schools were teaching, but was not aware the whole country was doing the same thing. He and I had many heated discussions about what he had been taught. Being proud of our American heritage, I had kept my history books and his mothers, for referrence, so I was able to show him, he had been taught some untruths about our country. Thanks again and I will check out the website.

    Islam is the antithesis of our Constitutional Republic .... so we can be assured that it is wholly supported by the current pretender-in-chief. Sharia law supports female mutilation, honor killings, and eliminates freedom of speech and thought.

    People often confuse islam with a race or a religion .... It is theocracy based on the idea that the whole world must be under its control. They have three options for the rest of us: convert to islam, become subordinates forced to pay them not to destroy us, or be destroyed.

    Everyone who values personal liberty, freedom of expression, or any of the other freedoms and rights that are supposed to be guaranteed by the Constitution should fight the spread of sharia and islam with every faculty at their disposal .... once its infection spreads, there is little hope of recovery.

        Monopolies created through the use of the Capitalist system used in Free enterprise system are what controls the political processes ...and everything else

The poor misunderstood Muslim who slit his sister's throat because she brought shame upon her family. Works for them so it must be right.

      The Muslims have come to America for one reason: to take it over. Shortly after the Iranian revelution is 1982, the Muslims formed a five phase plan for taking over Americs; they called it "The Program". They began working on this plan in 1985. As of 2009, the had already finished phases one and two and were working on phase three, the infiltration and take over of our government.
      If you doubt what I am saying, look at who is our president; it is no accident that Obama is the first Muslim president of America. Or read Robert Spencer's book, "Stealth Jihad".

    Note to parents: When your schools mandate programs that conflict with your family ideologies, remove your children from those schools. They are rated, and receive funding, based on student body count. Take away the students and you take away their money.

    What this article is describing is part of what is called "stealth jihad" or "cultural jihad": the promotion and spread of Islam by non-violent means.
    There are at least three books on this type of jihad:
    1.) Robert Spencer's "Stealth Jihad".
    2.) Brigitte Gabriel's "They Must Be Stopped".
    3.) Pamela Geller's "Stop the Islamization of America".
    Reading any one of these books - or preferrably all three - is something that all Americans concerned with preserving our culture, our country, our freedoms, and our way of life should do ASAP.
    I assure you, it's much later than you think.

      I do not blame you to write the way you did. After all we all wish to be saved. The fact is most countries in North Africa (Arab Countries) were Christians but when Islam came with the idea either you be one of us or be killed and that was one way they go to paradise a lot of Christians had either escaped or were murdered this has been the history of Islam in North Africa.

  • Lawvan

    How can this be possible, right here in the good old U. S. of A? American/New York tax dollars being spent teaching Arabic as a required language? I say that, if someone or some student wants to learn Arabic, that's fine, but to require that it be taught and learned in the public schools at taxpayer expense is a Big Mistake. I pity the poor student that fails that course. Will there be whipping, or, worse, stoning? What's next, the Koran? And how about those teachers? Are they going to subliminally try to brain-wash the students into adopting all things Arabic? Will the girls be required to cover their heads and faces and to wear burkas? Where does this end? I see no end in sight.

  • sovereintyofone

    It's bad enough that I have to " Press 1 for English " when I use the ATM machines. Now they want to teach Arabic in elementary school(s). Those of us that were here first ( I was going to say Americans but that begs a verbal beat down from the liberals) when this became a country all spoke/speak English.
    That is or was the decided language of this country. Now with the in-flux of foreign aliens and immigrants we now have to change this countries heritage, culture and spoken language to suit their needs and make them feel at home. I'm sorry but if they don't " feel at home here " then they can go back to where they came from. If you want to get into the medical feild such as a nurse or EMT, you have to speak spanish as part of your training. Why? because of all the illegal aliens coming into this country and mooching off our system.
    When are we going to stop letting the liberal " touchy-feely, I feel your pain " idiots stop pushing us around and stand up for what this country use to be. I feel like I'm living in a foreign country instead of the U.S.A.
    And I for one am sick and tired of having to " Press 1 for English ". Let the " Johny come lately's " Press 1, or 2, or whatever for their language. Better yet, learn English or get the heck out of this country that speaks ENGLISH... get it. I digress....

    No to Sharia but yes to Arabic, let it be an elective. If there are competent Arabic teachers, it's good to have the exposure to the language and culture. It facilitates uncovering the cannard that "Islam is the religion of peace." It's got to have NOTHING to do with the U.N. Anything and everything the UN dishes out does not pass the "smells test" for putrid anti-Americanism. In fact, it will be to the best interest of the United States if we can ship the UN off to Switzerland, it being historically famous for political neutrality.

Just look at every country in the world that has allowed them to propagate their hate with the deception of being peace-loving. Their BS is nothing less then then that.

Their grammar is abysmal and spelling horrendous (even WITH spell check). How about we stick with the good old reading, writing and arithmetic, before we throw in a useless language like Arabic. While I'm on my soapbox, has everyone seen the commercial on TV where they tell us that the USA is 27th, worldwide, in science (or whatever) - and how 'together' we can solve this? Then, to my amazement, they say we need to spend more resources on TEACHERS !!! I'm thinking at this point, don't you think that the reason we are in 27th place is because of the union teachers and the propangandists in our public education system?

    We have a tenacity of shooting ourselves in the foot. Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto of the Japanese Imperial Navy attended Harvard for two years and was Navy Attache` at the embasey in Washington DC for two years and then become Fleet Admiral when he commanded the raid on Pearl Harbor. I used to work at the Savanah River Site in SC, a nuclear processing site that was supposed to be secret, and I noticed that there were many middle eastern persons there with security clearances working there. Now Pakistan and Iran and India all have nuclear capability. This is ilresponcible to say the least. We should be concentrating on building our school curriculum back up to the first class that we had back 70 years ago, more science especially the earth sciences (Like Global Warming??), more math without the calculator, more English especially in comprehension, more US History of which students today know nothing about, and geography. Give today's student a map and they cannot even find their own state let alone their own town. Today we rate 17th in class with the other nations in the world. Sad commentary at best.

    Our nation is facing the judgment of God... and it seems nobody believes it’s coming, or cares.

    The prophets of God were sent to warn Israel and its leaders to repent and turn from their wicked ways. And beloved, when you read the book of Jeremiah, it’s exactly like what’s going on around us. We all see the handwriting on the wall, but we’re told: “Better times are ahead,” —especially from politicians running for office. And most people buy into it!

    There are no leaders. Every man does that which is right in his own eyes. As the world grows darker and no one seems to have the answers, the antichrist will soon make his move.

    The Lord told us in the latter days there would be a falling away. Jesus orders us to preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15). Those of us who have been born again are to be lights in the darkness. Our bodies are the temple of God (1 Cor. 6:19). When we received Jesus as our Saviour, He came to dwell in our bodies.

    • JacktheFAC

      Raymond, our country is not FACING the judgment of God. Our nation is ALREADY under the judgment of God (Romans 1:28-32) because we have refused to any longer recognize Him as Creator and are now so busy worshiping the creation: environment, ecology, etc., etc., ad naseam. Since 1945 our school children have been brainwashed with this pagan unprovable THEORY of evil-lution, so that no longer does America recognize God as Creator and LORD.

      • Raymond1

        Hi Jack,
        You're absolutely right, America is already under God's judgment & that
        judgment will intensify. I was wondering how many would figure this out.
        Congrats. Raymond.

        • JacktheFAC

          Raymond--Chuck Missler, on YouTube, has a great commentary on this very subject. When you study this Rom. 1:28-32 passage, you see that at least times, Paul refers to God as Creator. This outbreak of homosexuality and irrational thinking is not the REASON for God's judgment; on the contrary, it is the RESULT of God's judgment. This judgment of God's is the same type of judgment that Samson got when Delilah barbered him--the judgment that God had left him. The judgment of God upon America is that God has LEFT America. He has now turned His back upon America because America has turned its back upon Him. What goes around, comes around.

    Englsh should be the primary language in this country. If you want to teach your children a different language, do it at home. I go out to the store in this country (Florida) and hear so much Spanish. This should e a second language and the parents force their children to speak Spanish all the time.

    Reason Principal Rosen, aka Neville Chamberlain, has to mandate it is because he knows if he makes it elective not many will sign up for it. Therefore, his f-ed up liberal Kumbaya/Coexist agenda will go nowhere. Don't people like this yahoo have a clue what's going? Or are they so entrenched in "I'm going to make the world a better place" mentality that they are blinded by their own stupidity? - I'm not saying that trying to improve the world is not a noble thing, however, it takes two to tango. Islamists want to change it, just not the way all the people driving cars with "COEXIST" bumpers would like. --- VOTE FOR AMERICA & TURN NOVEMBER INTO NO-BAMA --- Stay Well, Safe & Free --- Let's remember what this weekend is all about.

    "One reason Principal Nicky Kram Rosen selected Arabic — as opposed to more common offerings, such as Spanish or French — is because he claimes it will help the school obtain a prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) standing."

    If the parents of this school system allow this to happen, they deserve the fallout. It shows just how insensitive some people are. Can you imagine the outcry if some bull-headed school official had mandated the study of Japanese or German after WWII?
    The trouble is, it won't end with learning a few words of the language. They will try to indoctrinate those kids in the religion, too. Oh, they won't do it directly but they will sneak in some Shariah principles and make it look like a positive influence.

    During WWII my High School stopped teaching German. That was stupid! We need to know or at least have some knowledge of the language and customs of our enemies or potential enemies. Of course, it would be better not to have enemies and to stay out of other people's and nation's business. During the Viet Nam War a United Methodist Bishop visited North Viet Nam and came back an "expert." I had one question for him. "Do you speak and/or understand the Vietnamese language? He answered, "No." That means that he was brain washed!!!!!! KNOW YOUR ENEMIES. Speak and understand their language. By the way, we ought to also be learning Chinese and hope that it's use will only be for friendship and business. The US Congress needs to pass a law that ONLY US laws are mandatory in this country.

    "Currently, the 239 students at P.S. 368 can learn Spanish or Mandarin
    after school. This year, 35 students studied Spanish and 42 studied
    Mandarin. In March, a small pilot group of 12 students took Arabic
    classes instead of recess."

    One more time the liberals force something on the people. If anything, this should be an elective. The bigger story is that English should be taught.

    Why does this surprise anyone? You have a muslim president intent on the destruction of America. Read the koran, it tells it's followers to lie to the infidels, tell them anything to appease them until the time is right, then kill them if they don't convert.
    Obama has been lying his entire term and continues to do so with a complicit media, who don't understand they are sowing the seeds of their own destruction because once you have sharia law, there is no such thing as freedom of speech.

    What the principle is doing is bowing to the desires and
    demands of Muslims. He is afraid not to
    allow this in his school. If he was not
    afraid he would be pushing science and math more, so that our kids would be
    ready to compete with other for a job here in the U.S. and abroad. That is what is wrong with our country
    because of Obama his leanings towards Islam.
    He admitted that the Islam call to prayers is the most beautiful sound
    he has ever heard. Obama has Muslim
    visiting at the White House constantly and has a Muslim for his spiritual leader
    right now. This principle does not
    realize that he is allowing the kids in his school to become indoctrinated in
    Islam. Islam is a law into itself and a
    way of life. Their teachings go against
    our constitution yet this fool of a principle is brain washing our kids into
    Islam. He should be horse whipped and
    run out of town. Liberals don’t want to wake
    up till it is too late. Their daughters
    will be sex slaves to Muslim men by the age of 9 and their boys will be suicide
    bombers by 16 if they allow this to continue.
    This is what the Muslims want gutting U.S. anti-terrorism laws, loosening
    Muslim immigration, converting Americans to Islam, with a special focus on
    Hispanic immigrants and black inmates and soldiers (attractive white Christian
    women are another prize conversion, infiltrating the government and
    institutionalizing Shariah law in America.

  • caprock

    Why is this being explained as teaching Arabic? Take a phonics class if you are just learning the language. This is designed to teach the islamic religion. Why is the government getting involved in teaching a religion. I thought there was the separation of church and state? If you told every parent in the school district that their children were going to be indoctrinated into islamic studys instead of learning math and english, you might get a different response. I would pull my child from the class. Will there be a penalty if they don't learn Arabic? Wake up and recognize that the enemy is at the GATES!

    fit into any skilled fields that are taught. English, however, is a combination of languages from around
    the world and is probably the most difficult to learn. Regardless of where you go in this world people
    speak American English as a universal means of commuication, conducting business and conversing.

    America allowed muslims to enter on a special law drawn up by Ted Kennedy and step by step they are taking over our country using our laws against us. In muslim countries the people are enslaved and every country muslims take over that country becomes enslaved. We should demand all immigrants to learn the English language, adopt American customs, understand our Constitution and Declaration of Independence which makes America unique among world countries, forsake their former countries, language, laws, history, customs and become American citizens with their only alligiance to america. If they don't want this and don't move along the path to follw each step of this process remove them and their families from america!
    Every country muslims have entered either they are forced to leave or they attempt to take over with Sharia Law, muslim mosques, prayers 5 times per day, poor work habits, demanding muslim religions and forcing our institutions to follow the muslim rules instead of the other way around. We have Congressman from Minnesota Ellison who is doing just this as we speak. Oust them all!

    OMG! Do parents have any rights about what their child does or does not do in this new society? This is yet another horrible indication of what is coming at us, now starting this summer even before November. Open your eyes, Americans. And Gary (below) I agree w/you and also I think it would be great if students in all public schools could express themselves well in spoken and written English, how about that??? Too many of them can't write a simple grammatically correct sentence or two nor can they read books written on their grade level written in English. They also cannot spell the words necessary to communicate in writing, write a passage in cursive handwriting, or even sign their names in cursive form. Somehow they may make it into a college on a free ride due to taxpayer funding, and there they will discover that they are not prepared to succeed in the challenges at the post-secondary level. Ten years from now, they'll have the excuse, "But I speak Arabic pretty well!" Possibly by the time they enter colleges it will be just fine, though, because all the classes will be taught in Arabic rather than English. What is the matter with this ridiculous New York school system? What can their administrators and school board possibly be thinking? It's no wonder that the American education system is falling to pieces. The priorities are all topsy-turvy.

I am an America, I don't want Sharia Law, I would detest it, I speak as my min language, English, and obey the laws of the United States, If a person worships, the Muslim Religion, or any other religion, I really don't care. Keep it in your own home, church, mosque, temple, monistary, and that is fine with me. But do not force me to agree with you. I have my own beliefs, I am a Christain, and I will not force my beliefs on you. You on the other hand attack my beliefs all the time, if you are Muslim, with extreme violence in other lands and here in America. It is really hard for me to accept a religion which straps bombs on children and people to blow up other people, to have honor killings of women, a religion which pushes violence on oher religions. The Lord I worship doesn't do that. The Lord I worship tells me Vengence is his.

    One reason Principal Nicky Kram Rosen selected Arabic — as opposed to
    more common offerings, such as Spanish or French — is because he claims
    it will help the school obtain a prestigious International
    Baccalaureate (IB) standing. . . ."

    The reason clearly can't be to gain a useful level of communicative competence in Arabic (one of the four most-difficult-to-learn foreign languages (along with Chinese, Japanese and Korean) for members of the U.S. military in language-training at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) only about 30 percent of those (only about 7 percent) at the highest defined level of language-learning aptitude reached DLIFLC graduation proficiency
    standards in programs of intensive training (6 hours per day, over 25 to 47
    weeks of study).

    The principal involved cannot be commended for imposing study of Arabic on students under his care in order to gain illusory recognition for himself.

  • Screeminmeeme

    The utter stupidity of Americans is mind-blowing when it comes to Islam and what its ascendency will mean to this country. It's apparent that more than a few are incapable of connecting the glaring, eye-catching dots. Making arabic mandatory is one.

    The very calculated Islamization process is happening incrementally, like the proverbial frog in the pot. If you drop a frog in a pot of hot water, he will instantly hop out. However...if you put him in a pot of cold water, and slowly heat it, he will be cooked before he even realizes that he's dying.

    Well, folks, that's us.
    Absurd analogy?
    I don't think so.

    Right now, that same pot is being slowly heated and here we sit, like so many hapless frogs, mouths agape, imagining tomorrow's promise, heedless and oblivious to all the signs that mark our imminent demise.

    And we're allowing it to happen because we've bought into the lies touted by a pro-Islamic administration, bogus Islamic groups, braindead educators, and a complicit media...all of which consistently glorify and venerate Islam, casting it as innocuous, superior to all other beliefs, and certainly beneficial to us all.........and it's being done to brainwash the willing with the hopes of their ultimate submission to it. And of course those of us who resist, will be eliminated.

      Arabic is a language - Islam is a religion.

      • Screeminmeeme

        fightforfreedom...
        Again...your lack of understanding of Islam is staggering. Arabic is the language preferred by fundamentalist Imams and jihadists and the language of the Quran. In the Baghdad getto of Dearborn, Michigan, you can see more Arabic signs than English ones.

        Islam teachs that NO MUSLIM is to assimilate into any culture but is to work to SUPPLANT that culture with an Islamic one. NO MUSLIM is allowed to pledge allegiance to any body, flag or nation other than allah. That's why NO MUSLIM ought to be in our military, on police forces or in our government. And EVERY QURAN-OBEYING MUSLIM is OBLIGATED to wage war on non-believers.

        These are facts which I assume, like so many others, you will ignore. There is none so blind as he who will not see.

        BTW: Islam is not a religion. It is a warring, misogynistic, hate-based totalitarian political system....dressed in the rhetoric and garb of religion..... which is seeking world domination...

I am not sorry to say this at all--There is every reason to condem Sharia Law/Finance as Radical Islam is waging "Civilization Jihad" and the Liberal Media will not cover this and Islam is practicing ~~~Tyquiah(probably spelled wrong)~~~ which is and I Quote "Lying to the Infadel"(anyone not a Muslim! If the advance of Islam was not stopped at the battle of "Toures" France way back we would probably already be Islamist's! So do your interpolating if you are not an Islamist. If so oh Well---- To you I say Islam is not a Religion but an "Ideological Political Regime" Religions do not make Demands of Compliance on a Society; however, Political Regimes do! Muslim may be a Religion; however Abrogation from the ~~Medina Koran~~ hangs around ever Muslim like an Albatrose from the novel "Moby Dick."

    All "true believers" in Islam are forbidden to pledge any allegiance except to Islam. It is Islam that wants to assimilate Western Society into their dream of a World Caliphate.

    Agenda 21 is the UN plan to assimilate all Nations under the UN (not God)! It is all madness!

    Americans should be proud of America as it was founded; and, they should revere the Constitution as second only to the Bible.

    Let us all resist the fanatics of the world who have been trying (and in
    many cases, succeeding) in pushing us square pegs into their round
    holes.

    We remember the Alamo. We remember the Maine. We remember Pearl Harbor. Let all Americans remember America in November.

    We can and shall overcome!

    All horrific endings have to have a beginning, and mandating Arabic is the beginning. What exactly is going in America? I grew up without ever hearing about Islam, Sharia Law, or the Koran. Little by little, this crap is infiltrating our schools, and silently corrupting our children. If these Muslims come to our country, they accept OUR laws, just like all the other immigrants that came over years ago. Why would America change, when the reason immigrants started coming here, is because of our freedoms, and our very special Constitution. The Middle East has, and always had problems with their religious beliefs, which kept them at war constantly. Why bring that nonsense here. Just say no, or do what many Americans are doing. Simply take your children out of any school, that teaches garbage, and home school your kids. Enough is enough!

    The Muslim people can't get along with themselves in their own lands ! . . . What makes anyone think it possible that they can come to a foreign land (America) and fit into our society. . . . My dislike of the Muslim agenda is not due to my prejudice, but a firm grasp of reality that they will NEVER fit in to our society. . . . The few, very few, Muslims that have genuinely become Americans are not voiciferous enough in our society and seem to be the ones that have either been born here, or have come here for schooling purposes at a impressionable age and have changed their way of thinking. . . . The older Muslims that come here will NEVER change. . . . They seek only to change our society into theirs. . . If it was so wonderful, then why leave your homeland where all the things you desire are already in place ? . . . All I know is that there are more Muslims in France than there are Frenchmen, and they are therefore doomed ! . . . We cannot allow the same thing to happen in our land ! . . . . The truly "Americanized" Muslims that I have gotten to know say exactly what I have said above ! . . . They know !

  • Robert H. Galloway

    Guys and Gals, I agree with much of what has been written here but you're getting way off point. Arabic is a language. Islam is a religion. Free choice should enable a student to take the foreign language of their choice. "Politically Correct" guides the idea of "requiring" a student to take Arabic. If our pathetic public schools could afford it, I'd offer several foreign languages and maybe even require reading proficiency in one. Mandating the study of Arabic is a whole different matter. The heinous things done in Muslim nations (many of which don't even come from Islam) isn't related to the language they speak.
    Sincerely,

    Since we are supposed to be a Christian nation and our nation was built on Christian values, It would be better if we as Christians rose up and professed our values more openly and followed Jesus Christ by his commandment of "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets

    Matt 22:37-40 (KJV)

    We can love our neighbors but that does not mean we must abide in and change our lives, our beliefs, our Christian based law system and history to accommodate their needs. After all our neighbors came to America to seek a new life of freedom from what ever they were unhappy with in their own country. So there is no reason that Christians should give up Christianity for any other system that believe that Christianity is wrong.

    I don't believe we can change it, because it has been prophesied that we Christians will suffer at the hands of the oppressor and die for our beliefs. Well we can either stay in our homes and pray that the oppressor does not come to our door step or we can stand for our beliefs and become true disciples of Jesus Christ and win souls to the son of God Jesus Christ, after all he did die for all of us and shed his blood for our sins. Let us show our neighbors that we are Christians and love everyone but as Jesus told his disciples: In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place. 11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

    May God Bless each of you and give you peace in your heart, mind and soul.

    This comment will probably not see the light of day for long, but after posted I am going to unsubscribe to the newsletter. If you want to be truthful then tell the WHOLE STORY, not just emphasizing the the details meant to stir up people so they don't think clearly. I am strongly against the ideals of the professional politicians who proclaim to be Liberals. The only thing I hate worse are liars and those who only tell half-truths spinning them to meet their agenda.

    IT is ONE SCHOOL... improperly spelled SCHOOLS in the title of the article. It is a "CHOICE" school, not a school that ANYONE is forced to go to. Even if you live across the street this is NOT a school you will forced to go to. The school has announced that if any student does NOT want to learn Arabic it will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, they did not say they will be forced to learn it.

    In the Newsletter, regardless how you want to approach it, the article is not being truthful it what it's accusations are. Then two stories down in the same newsletter it says "Obama Breaks the First Rule of Lying"? There are no rules of lying, LYING IS LYING, Period! So long and good luck.

    Another way to look at this is, if more Americans are fluent in the Arabic language, we will be better quipped to defeat and extinguish radical Islamic fundamentalism around the world. Although, I guess I do have to admit that if I were a parent of a student in that school, and I were told that my child would not be given the choice of which foreign language(s) to study, and that they MUST study Arabic, I would be looking elsewhere for a school in which to enroll my child.

    While learning Arabic to facilitate higher mathematics would be acceptable, it is not a language I would otherwise use. Latin is a better 'general use' language and Chinese and Russian are both better as current world languages. Due to the fact that the accursed idiot mujadeen Arab contingents are misusing and misinterpretting Islam to further their world-conquest jihad crimes, they taint both their language and their religion negatively and cause me to avoid both.

    Again, many of the commenters, "just don't get it". Unlike other languages, the study of "pure Arabic" involves far more than just the study of a language. Their language study will predominently cover only issues that are involved in Islam and Shariah Law. Of course, but for only PR purposes, they will include some other unrelated issues,but the primary focus will be on Islam. We need rules that in the study of any culture or religion, each should be given equal and unbiased time, and no student should be quizzed or graded on their knowledge of any religion, or should they be required to recite, embrace or address any cultural or religious conceipts. We are faced with a problem that the Islamic religion covers all facets of life. from how to brush one's teeth to which hand to use in performing "daily necessities". What really needs to be taught is how the Qur'an was compiled, years after Muhammad's death, from scraps of information on palm leaves, bones, clay tablets, stones, and from oft repeated memories, over several generations. It should also be disclosed that many "found" items were edited or ommited, and that "those in power" dictated what would be included and what would not be included in the final, "accurate spoken word" of their God. Our children should also be taught that "truth and facts" can never be, blasphemy, phobic, racist or a hate issue. Then, like all holy books, the matter of copy and recopy errors have to be discussed. Then is should be pointed out that the lack of chronology in the Qur'an, combined with its undated "abrogations" make that Holy Book undeceipherable, even by the most learned Muslims. This is evidenced by the reams upon reams of supporting other official documents that attempt to clarify what the Qur'an really means. It also has to be clearly revealed that none of the abrogated revelations have been physically removed from the "unchangable" Qur'an. I firmly believe that if the abrogated material was removed and the remainder placed into a chronological order, their Holy Book would be just a clear declaration of war against all non-believers (Infidels). To compound the issue, the Qur'an prohibit Muslims from even discussing the validity of the document, under penalty of death. That same penalty apllies for abandoning any issue of Islamic Faith---and we are teaching these issues to school children!!! ---someone (many?) need to be placed in front of a firing squad.

  • StopObama2012

    Let's get real, it's xenophobic nonsense to think that 1 school in NYC teaching Arabic is about "the Islamization of America than anything else." Sometimes the far right is as bad as the far left in this country, and this kind of fear based rhetoric is one of those times. Muslims in this country account for about 0.2% of the population. And the vast majority seek the same opportunities that America offers to all citizens, many becomeing Westernized in order to pursue those opportunities.

    From the Koran; a writing against Christ!
    Surah 4:171
    O People of Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and his word which was directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from him. So believe in Allah and his messengers. Do not, "Three" (as in the Trinity of the Christian faith.), desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one god. Exalted is he above having a son. To him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. And sufficient is Allah as disposer of affairs.

    For the Christian keep in mind 1 John 2:22, 23
    22. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is an, (not 'the'...for there are many.)antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father (God) either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father.
    So, if you are an American and believe in the God of our founding fathers you will have to make the deduction, that Islam (word which means 'submission' when translated.) IS actually both a false religion and a dangerous political agenda 'all in one'!
    We can not hold hands with Satan, and then expect the 'God in whom we trust' to bless us too! "Chose this day in which you will serve, the god of this world, or the God of your fathers"!

    It's your choice America and I'm not saying I belive in a Mormon religion personally, but I see a far greater danger in the MusIim belief!

    It never ceases to amaze me that teachers continue to get their names in the limelight(they say) by instituting "new" courses into their curricula. This idiot needs to teach the students English first, how to read it, write it, and SPEAK it before even CONSIDERING other languages. Of course, it's quite possible that he can't do any of those himself!! It wouldn't be the first time and I'll guarantee you it won't be the last!!

  • JBRice

    I'm hearing from all over the nation how children are being mandated to go through a muslim indoctrination classes, having to learn their language, etc., when, of course, it is against the law to even mention Christianity in public schools, Why are parents allowing their children to go to those classes? My children are both adults now, but I would have really been at their school in a heartbeat to make sure they weren’t being taught things that are in direct contrast to our beliefs. The schools should be teach reading, spelling, writing, math, science, history, geography, and the parents should be responsible for their their home values. YES, parents need to start taking care of their children. Big brother government is way out of control.

  • Jon

    I sure wish the graduates of schools like this the best of luck.

    If they go into business and don't speak English without a heavy accent, they won't be getting my patronage.

    Where I live now, there are many businesses run by immigrants who have not bothered to learn English at all, or the ones that have learned have only done so minimally, and still speak English only in a broken "pidgen" English manner. I refuse patronize those businesses. Where I work, many immigrants come in and want service, but they cannot speak English and expect me to make an extra effort to accommodate them. I don't comply. They get angry when I do not make an extra effort. If they want service, they need to learn the language of the nation, I have no responsibility to learn their language. I speak three languages already and that is enough.

    Ok. These psuedo-intellectuals who like to throw around the PC labels (jingoism, "xenophobe, etc) can pack sand with a large square file and tobasco sauce. I will guarantee these imbeciles know precisely ZERO about the pedophile prophet (Mohammed) or the truth about the origins and contents of the koran (no, I didn't misspell it) the Hadith, the meaning of the Haj or ANYTHING of substance about the "Johnny-come-lately" "religion of peace". Since castrate ignorance is the "order of the day" here in the land of the yellow, anything that resembles THE TRUTH about these 7th century sub-humans is censored from public access while the castrate-cowards who operate the public mis-edu-manipulation mills (with my stolen tax dollars) indoctrinate future generations in the "art" of cowardice and self (America) loathing. Any time one of you bureaucrat nazi's or your mindless minions like "StopObama2012" would like to "teach me" the gutteral utterances of the Arabian peninsula, you drop

      Look, the founders thought it important enough to put freedom of religion as the very first thing in the Constitution. This gives other religions rights.

      This gives the same rights to Christians (Protestant, Catholic, Lutheran, etc), Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Scientologists, Mormons, Johovah's Witnesses, those that follow Confucius, a Shaman, a Voodoo Priest, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

      It doesn't matter what you think THE TRUTH is. They believe it and have the right to believe it. It's the first law of the land.

Teach a language spoken by tens of millions of Christians and even some Jews in Africa and Asia?

    Kudos to who were responsible in preventing that a mosques be built near the center of '9/11'. Smiles and Kudos to the Philippines and all the Filipinos who publish their MAJOR newspapers in ENGLISH. I am a Filipino-American and I placed an American Flag in front of my resident yesterday to honor all Veterans. Thousands & 1000s of Veterans died in defense of justice and liberty but at this point, those who are mostly Muslims who prefer their major language to be Arabic seems to be bent on killing people who are not Arabic i.e. Muslims. I know because I keep myself abreast with current events in the news.

  • gnafuasusual

    Here in the United States, How about mandating that all Students learn ENGLISH? I thought that was the U.S. Language. More than half of students can't slobber out a decent English sentence much less learn Arabic.

  • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

    Arabic-speaking does not automatically equal Muslim. Nor does Muslim automatically equal Arabic-speaking. Pakistanis and Iranians, for example, are not Arabs and their primary languages are not Arabic.

    In the United States, most Arab-Americans — two-thirds! — are Christian. Slightly less than one-fourth of Arabs in America are Muslim. There are more Christians in Arabic-speaking Egypt (5 to 15 million) than there are in most states of the United States.

    Language learning is about expanding your thinking and logic skills, as well as opportunity, and even improving skills in one's primary language (i.e., English). If one insists on seeing the Arab world as an enemy, then realize learning their language also provides an opportunity to influence potential friends and thwart would-be adversaries.

    This story has it wrong that learning Arabic is mandatory, and it was not a decision thrust upon the school but made by them. Equating the learning of the Arabic language with a Muslim takeover is absurd.

    This is ridiculous. Schools in this country are failing our children by indoctrinating not educating. Whatever is PC at the moment; Spanish when the issue is illegal immgration, Arabic now that Islam is the"victim" religion, homosexual education to make a deviant lifestyle "normal". I cannot think that very many of these elementary school students will ever have a use for Arabic. It actually is part of the "civilization jihad" Islam has been pushing for about 4 decades in the US. They are smart enough to use our Judeo-Christian tolerance and our own Constitution against us. Those who aid Islam in making these inroads in our culture are useful idiots who will be thrown aside by the Muslims if they gain ascendancy in this country. Our schools need to concentrate on English, accurate History, Math and Science.

    I think some of you pro-muslims need to read some very good books on the Islam organization. One such book is "The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran" by Robert Spencer... You might find that your thoughts about Muslims are a little different after reading some of this material.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Kaity927 Dorothy Duda

    Principal Nicky Kram Rosen at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights is very un-American. if she offered it as a elective I'd say that was nice but mandate, never. We are Americans speaking English in USA & learning another language is either elected or a must according to the type of program/diploma one expects to receive. America's other name is FREEDOM, freedom to choose, select, make one's own decisions etc.
    No one, not even parents can force or direct what another will do or say when reaching legal age of consent, and we can not force people to believe or agree to anything. We are free to share and teach what we believe if anyone will listen or wants to learn.

    So, in your xenophobia you want only English spoken and learned? What about 1+ billion Chinese--you would prohibit Mandarin; or, 1 billion arabic speakers? No, you just "...suspect that the IB program is more about the Islamization of America than anything else." Your thinking is extraordinarily limited and parochial, or extremely self-centered. Either one shows you do not appreciate diversity, multi-culturalism and internationalism, all of them increasingly necessary in a smaller world--not to mention the foundations of our own country inviting all to the land of the free and home of the brave, accepting the tired, poor citizens of the world dreaming to breathe free. What a narrow minded ethnic, cultural and religious bigot. It's mind boggling in a modern world.

    It seems StopObama 2012 does not have a substantive argument. He/she attacks, accuses and name calls, which does not make for a good debate. Facts and research are important. He/she needs to actually read the Koran, read an objective bio of Mohammed, research what Islam teaches to all, even the moderate Muslims, and understand Sharia Law.It's not a religion, it's a movement and it teaches that the "infidels" or anyone who is not a Muslim, must convert or be killed. Muslims desire to convert the world and rule. Please do your research.

  • Guest

    It should be optional. Parents should be able to have their children, whether they're in kindergarten, or high school, to opt out of the course. Sadly, the truth is that we need more Arabic speakers for the Army,

    Have you heard the phrase, "Know thine enemy". It's important to have Americans who speak fluent Arabic, so they can translate Arabic radio stations, websites, etc. I don't believe all Arabs are bad (you can't always take their book literally just like you can't always take the bible literally) but we need Americans who can understand the messages of the extremists.

    America has the worse kind of enemy she has ever had during her entire existence, and that is a religious enemy, the Radical Islamist, and that being anyone who follows the book they call The Holy Quran. This book tells those who believe in it they must kill or enslave all of the infidels, that is the scary thing how can you tell the difference between a Radical Muslim and Non-Radical Muslim when they are supposed to worship from the same book, well i make it simple for me i trust neither because there is at least one group that was supposed to be working for peace and making a bridge so that people could understand the Non-Radicals turned out this was a total sham.There are many ABC Muslim organizations such as CAIR,MAS,ICNA while there might be some that are genuine and are helping people, my focus is on the ones that if not stopped will destroy this country.CAIR is a perfect example of one of the insidious ones. I have been studying Islam for the past twelve years and the growing Muslim population here and their infiltration into our government is a great concern to me and should be to anyone who values their freedom and loves America, because this is a fact they will push for Shariah Law until they get it or we make it a moot subject with whatever means. You can help while there is still time to stop this Evil remember Edmund Burke: All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing,most Concervative people i know believed it impossible for someone like Obama to have become president so don't think it impossible for America to adopt Shariah Law. .

    So if my children go to PS 368 and are in the 2nd - 5th grades, they must study Arabic.

    1) Who gives a d*** if the principal wants an award? Who are the schools for anyhow: the principal, the teachers, or the students? Mistakenly my wife and I thought the schools were for the children; the teachers were there to facilitate the children teaching themselves; the principal to see that the schools were operated fairly, effectively, and efficiently.
    2) Did anyone else have a voice in selecting a foreign language or was this decision left to the discretion of the principal?
    3) What sort of education do those who will be teaching Arabic have? How long have they been teaching 2nd - 5th graders? Are they native speakers of Arabic? Which dialect(s)?
    4) Perhaps a parochial school would be a far better choice, though we'll have to pay taxes to support the Arabic in PS 368 plus the tuition.
    5) There's always a possibility i'll be transferred to Europe, but I'm not counting on it. With my luck it would be Estonia, and Tallinn is a fine city, but where else do they speak Estonian?

The current crop of 20-somethings were converted to enviro-socialism by the liberal education establishment. As long as curriculums can be dictated by the likes of C.A.I.R. and the World Wildlife Fund we are building a crop of pliant serfs and dhimmis out of the teenagers of today, who will regard American history with disdain.

      If you read other sources about this story, you will see the parents were in fact taking control of their local curriculum when they decided to have Arabic.

      And by the way, given that two-thirds of Arab-Americans are Christian (and only one-fourth are Muslim), it's a bit foolish to make the connection between teaching Arabic and promoting Islamism.

    It seems that all the things which made the USA the greatest nation on earth is slowly being eroded, destroyed.

      "Arabic" does not equate with "Muslim." Two-thirds of Arab-Americans are Christian.

      Also, despite was this article says, the Arabic classes are not mandatory. Look it up.

  • Phydeux

    apparently, i don't have access to your sources .... from everything i've read, it WILL BE MANDATORY. Even the New York Post confirmed it:

    According to the New York Post,
    An upper Manhattan public elementary school will be the first in the city to require that students study Arabic, officials said yesterday.
    Beginning next semester, all 200 second- through fifth-graders at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights will be taught the language twice a week for 45 minutes — putting it on equal footing with science and music courses.
    One reason Principal Nicky Kram Rosen selected Arabic — as opposed to more common offerings, such as Spanish or French — is because it will help the school obtain a prestigious International Baccalaureate standing. …
    The Arabic requirement becomes mandatory in September. But PS 368 is a so-called “choice’’ school and no kids, even those living nearby, are forced to attend it. If the school ever enrolls a student who objects to learning Arabic, administrators will deal with that on a case-by-case basis, Jackson said.
    Mohamed Mamdouh, who teaches the pilot program, said, “Soon, Arabic will be a global language like French and Spanish. These kids are like sponges. It’s amazing to see their progress.’’

    Sounds pretty mandatory .... for all those who would rather not transfer their children to a new school. ... 'Their minds are like sponges' ? ... hmmm .... That doesn't even raise a yellow flag with you? .... What are the advantages for arabic becoming a 'global language like French and Spanish' (and he forgot to mention English)? People ought to have the option of learning any language they choose - generally a choice made in their own self-interest - and not with the expressed goal of making that language a 'global language' .... Seems to me that Chinese or Japanese would be more useful in world commerce.

The school taught RACISM, a class explaining that people who are not white tend to be discriminated against, and it was taught to kids in first or second grade. Young children are color blind and will play with anyone...... until the teachers get ahold of them, that is. Homeschooling is becoming very popular in some places.

    During the dark age when christianity was the absolute state religion of most of Europe and the science of the ancient Greeks, the Romans and Egytians was forgotten for hundreds of years . It was the Arab Empires who saved and catalagued this knowledge of mathimatics, architecture astronomy geology, litterature and chemistry for the western world. Without this knowledge we could not have invented computers, build the Empire state building or the Hoover Dam. These sciences were translated from the latin to Arabic Most of the Latin works was lost and if wasn't for the Arabic translatlions we would not have them to day. Arabic is an important language to learn for reasons of trade, informastion and culture. There are some 200 million Arabic speakers in the world to day, thats more than German and French combined.

    • thomacx

      Great, they kept good records, so did many other races.  If that information was lost, it would not have been lost forever as it would have been discovered again.  There were many forms of math, science, etc. that were lost thousands of years ago that are being re-discovered now.  Also, some of this information was never truly lost, it is just not accepted by modern scholars.

      To add to your 200 million Arabic speakers; since they breed like rabbits, there is no wonder that their populations are growing.  On average, I believe the number was somewhere around 7.1 children per household of Arabic speaking people.  Compare that with 2.1 for caucasians and you can see why their poplutations are expanding at a very detrimental rate.  Then we pour billions into saving people that live in the desert and have no food or water to sustain life? 

      Because you breed enmasse does not mean that you have the intellect to support the numbers.  And becausse these people "cataloged" the information, does not mean that they actually understand it or know how to use it.  Look at the history of those individuals that have provided great advancements for humanity, the number of Arabic speaking people that have provided anything worthwhile is a fraction of all other races.

    Maybe if more of us spoke and read Arabic, we would be more inclined to read the quran and realize its lies of being the "Religion of peace." Just an FYI, Islam is not JUST a religion, Islam is also a form of
    government, and Islam is a Form of Military. It just so happens that
    Mohammad "The Profit" was rejected at Mecca, he left and went to a
    Jewish settlement where he was also rejected as a profit. He then
    community organized and got all of the Minorities together in the
    settlement so where he was elected to the city council then he was a
    "Politician." And Later on, he developed Military strategies.

    Ultimately what most people forget is Islam may be a "religion of Peace" But the other parts of it are not peaceful.

    Very good article, perhaps a conspiracy? I like the bit about Arabs coming to the United States to be educated then turn that knowledge against us. Just like how the Mexicans come here (mostly illegally) to get more money for work then they send it to their families, stealing our jobs.
    On the other hand this post keeps saying "America" which refers to a continent. If you are going to write an article related to the United States then please say "United States" or "U.S.". I prefer to not be generalized as just a person from a continent. I am not possibly Canadian, I am not possibly Mexican, I am an United States citizens, that is what this article is about.
    Saying "America" when actually referring to the United States is like saying "Europe" when actually refering to the United Kingdom.

    • CHinCT

      If I remember my geography courses correctly, "America" is not a continent. However, NORTH AMERICA is, as is SOUTH AMERICA, Europe, etc. Your nit picking of one word did nothing to contribute to the discourse on subject of this article - namely, the mandated teaching of Arabic in one school. So, if you say using the word America is wrong, then you are too, as America is a synonym for the United States.

        EXCUSE ME...Ameica, do you refer to North America, Central or South America?  The U.S.A. is appropriate for me!!!

  • BH206L3

    My Girlfriend speaks Russian, I am doing my best to learn, she says Russian for me to learn would be the same problem and difficulty she would face learning Chinese, and she teaches Russian. As for this business with Arabic, screw that unless they plan on sending all their students down to Gitmo to be interrogators.  I would have no objections to Hebrew, or for that matter Latin, I took latin in Grade School some 45 years ago. At least with Hebrew and Latin you would be able to talk to people who are at least civilized, Ie Israelis and Old time Roman Catholics. Mom didn't like it much when they changed from the Latin Mass. She also didn't think I needed to speak Polish either, since in  America, yea I know the United States its English! I could use Polish right now with my Russian/ Ukrainian studies.

  • BH206L3

    And were is the Soviet Union now, on the Junk heap of history. Lenin was a sociopath, it took a long time and the Russian People paid a horrific price for that insane social experiment.  The muslims will not succeed  either because for the most part everybody knows who and what they are. The are not fooling anybody.

      NOT true....the end times will be configured like this: The Language; English, the Govt: Communist, the religion, Catholic, the the rule will be from Rome w/the Mouth of the English people...See the Book of Daniel (KJV) this will set it all down in order for you!!

  • Charly Balls

    The only good reason to learn arabic is so christians can infiltrate the mosques and be firmly in place when the Crusade is fully underway and the slaughter of these monsters can begin.

  • Lisa

    I would pull my kids out of that school and homeschool them, and, actually, I have all ready done that, though I don't live where the school will be teaching arabic. The public school system has been getting worse and worse and I, for one, do not want want my children educated in a government institution.

  • Resapark

    My highly motivated and intelligent son was accepted in the IB program at a local high school.  I smelled a rat when I called the teacher over the program.  It is a selected program, only a few kids will be in it, but only smart kids are accepted.  Its propaganda for many world viewpoints and we decided we would not include him in it.  Highly intensive studies , lots of reading and writing.  Worldview, one world government. No matter what the regime is, when you want change, you go for the youth first.

  • johnsnare

    Get to the children.  The oldest Communist ploy on earth.  when you indoctrinate a child, you have him for life.

  • Sama

    Funny, I'm lebanese, I was born in the US, I speak arabic. I'm not a terrorist. How offensive this article and all these comments are.

    • Sama

      Oh, and I'm catholic, not muslim. Get your facts straight about the arabic language and stop being so closed minded. Please tell me why I was forced to learn spanish in elementary school? I never use that. It is just to expose students to something different and to experience other cultures. I am offended that someone sent me this article and I'm ashamed of everyone in here.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bruce-Sims/1221048825 Bruce Sims

        Speak the language of the world today!  the ENGLISH language is the last times language!  We have ENGLISH Standards and English time (Greenwich mean time) and English measurements and we have an ENGLISH BIBLE (For the world) KING JAMES BIBLE...IT is NOT arabic, and that's it!!!  I/10th of 1 percent or less speak Arabic in the world and what good would it do to speak Arabic!  Speak the language that you can converse w/the MOST people upon earth, and that would be ENGLISH!!!!

        • CARLjr

          English is not the language of the Bible.  It was translated from Hebrew, Aramaic & Greek.  It has been translated into 450 languages including English and Arabic.

  • Arden person

     These people want to come to America to be free they say. They say that but is it just to change us.  I don't understand why we are having so much trouble .  If they want these laws and others things they have in the country they came from go back to it and have it there.  Where is Americas backbone anymore? 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bruce-Sims/1221048825 Bruce Sims

    That's what Muslims think: Hebrew will be the language the world will speak one day, and not only that Muslims will NEVER rule or dominate the world!  Much to Mooselims chagrin, JEWS will  dominate and rule the world w/a Jewish KING Upon the throne of David!  Muslims will BOW at the feet of this King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Rev 19:16 KJV) no matter what they think!  Tough apples Mooselims, you will not rule!!  Jocob will!!!!!

  • Snoocks2

    What do you expect from a state like New York?  What's curious is that Bloomberg is a Jew - certainly not of Arabic origin.  And why would anyone want to speak Arabic?  Those countries are under seige from themselves - they'll slaughter anything that moves.  Their religion is based upon hatred of Jews, because Muslims stole the entire idea of their religion(?)from the Torah.  Jews would not let them into their religion, so  their hatred grew into what we see today - young men of Arabic descent grew up on the hatred of their fathers and uncles, thereby becoming just like them.  The young go from throwing stones to throwing bombs into innocent throngs of children and women at the outdoor markets. Again - who would want to live with or near any of them?

    • ekim

      They are barbarians ! Hopefully we will oust them from our shores and return them to the sands they have tarnished with the blood of the innocent !

  • We The People

    Angers me to no end! Conspiracy! America is a wonderful country. However, our government is intentionally trying to indoctrinate our children and force us to go bankrupt so that they can move into a one world government. Prophecy being fulfilled right in front of our eyes. Notice how they are starting with our elementary students because they have no voice to fight or understand what is Really happening. Lord be with us.

    • RocketJL

      All part of UN Agenda 21. This sort of bit by bit intrusion has been going on for a long time, all the way back to 'No Child Left Behind'. The UN has Agenda 21 task and projects to be implemented all the way down to their Local 21. You may never see it coming with all the nice words, and it is for the children. If you back off and look at it, the Agenda 21 plan is to 'dumb down' an entire generation. Please Google UN Agenda 21 now. It will take you on a journey that will scare the heck out of you. The original plan started around 1907 by the elites. End game is one world government run by the UN, with only '500M' people left on planet Earth. What do you think the UN has in mind for the rest of us?

  • WilliamSpires

    Multicultural crap,   If the liberals like it so much then spread it equally, let the muslims eat pork.

    • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

      Yeah! And the Jews, too! We should make them eat pork, too, if they support multiculturalism. 

      (Wait a minute... why are we talking about Muslims again? In the US, two-thirds of Arab-Americans are Christian.)

      • WilliamSpires

        We are  not talking about Arabs but the shariah inspired groups like C.A.I.R. and the Muslim Brother hood who want to force their values on Americans. When the Jews form groups to force the U.S. to learn Hebrew and live by the Torah then they can eat pork too. Do a little research on current events, if you are an Arab then you should be equally outraged by the negative reflection on Arabs by the devious groups undermining freedom.

        • WilliamSpires

           The main point of the article seems to be often overlooked. I have no problem with teaching any

      • WilliamSpires

        hey kushibo, I looked at your blog about overreaction to a school offering Arabic. I am not anti muslim or anti Arab but I say again the problem is with MANDATORY, MANDATORY, MANDATORY. Thats what the article  said mandated not elective, if its not then the journalist needs to print a correction or find a new job.

        • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

          I have said REPEATEDLY here that if you look at other news sources, they have said that the Arabic classes are NOT mandatory. 

          If you don't have a problem with it if it's not mandatory, then kudos to you. Seriously. But there are plenty of people here who have a problem with Arabic being taught at all. 

          Please note the correction at the bottom of this article:

  • guest

    More than 30% of the students at that school are English Language
    Learners meaning that they don't even speak English and the school is
    planning to teach them Arabic. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.

      It would seem to me to be more logical to offer French (because our neighbor to the North speaks, reads, and writes in French and English). It would also be logical to offer Spanish (because our neighbor to the South speaks, reads and writes in Spanish and English if they are educated).
      To my knowledge, we do not have a neighbor or friend who uses Arabic. On the contrary, they have only shown that they are our enemies. They also have no human values compared to our country.

  • Ungringoenhuancayo2010

    Even though I hate islam and muslims I do think that the teaching of the arabic is a good thing!Why?Well,it might recruit some future arabic language transaltors for the FBI and CIA etc.I recommend everybody to read the book"Infiltration"by Robert Spencer because it goes into great detail about supposedly the arabic language translators that both agencies have hired for the purpose of interogating suspected terrorists right here in the United States as well as abroad and the thing is that the hired translators(many of them are arab muslims that have spent a good time in the United States)are not thruthfully interogating or interpreting what the suspected terrorists are saying thus hiding and protecting them at the same time.I would study arabic to help protect our national security from radical,fanatical muslims that want to eventually destroy and hurt us!It's a difficult language indeed!Probably among the most difficult there is for english speakers(arabic has sounds that come from the bottom of one's throat in terms of pronounciation)and it takes quite abit of time to master!!!I think after some formal study of the language one would have to spend some time in an arabic speaking country to finally do the finishing touches to perfect it etc.If I had the choice to do that I would go to Lebanon or Egypt due to the fact that there are large christian minorities in those countries.

    • Bill

      They will also be inculcating them into Islam if you read the article it is funded by a private Muslim organization from Qatar in the middle east of Asia, in the Gulf of Arabia, it is 98% Muslim. The foundation called the Qatar Foundation International is giving 250,000.00 over a 3 year period the kids will be studying math, science, social studies etc.... what do you think there plan really is....?

  • RFRider

    Stop wasting tax money to teach languages other than what are used here (English).   Same goes with Sharia laws, if you want it go get it, and one hint, It's not here in the USA!  

    • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

      It's being funded from Qatar:

      "The Qatar Foundation International, a nonprofit group financed by the government of Qatar, gave the school $250,000 to support the Arabic program for three years."

  • Carolandv

    Bloomberg is Jewish and like the liberals who believe their view will exempt them from the persecution of a Communist take-over, unfortunately, when they cement their rule the Jewish people will be first along with liberals and the rest.

    Tyranny knows no friends...it is an equal opportunity abuser!

    • American Patriot

      I would rather speak Arabic then Hebrew like the lieing thieving jew terrorists.

  • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

    Again, for those who do not have time to go through 628 comments, the original article contains an error. Learning Arabic is NOT mandatory at this school, but it is offered to all.

  • gnafu

    Arabic is NEEDED only if you live in the MidEast! English is NEEDED in all United States Schools. Unless New Yorkers are moving to the MidEast, they NEED to learn Arabic! If New York is planning on being a part of the United States, Teach Students how to speak, read, and write ENGLISH!

    • Andersondodie

      AMEN TO THAT~~~I AM MEETING MORE AND MORE ILLEGALS EVERYDAY..I AM NOT FOR ANYONE LEARNING NEW LANGUAGES...BUT THIS IS AMERICA AND IF WE GO TO SPAIN,MEXICO..YOU HAVE TO KNOW THEIR LANGUAGE OR YOU ARE SCREWED,SOON IT WON'T BE AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL..THEY TRY TO TAKE THE PLEDGE OUT OF SCHOOLS..WTH IS THAT.AGAIN THAT BURNS ME UP..WHY ARE WE CHANGING FOR THESE OTHER COUNTRIES,,LET THEM LEARN OR GET OUT !!!!

  • duif100

    The problem is easy to solve.

    A parents of children descending from other thasn Arab nations should sue the school districs for discrimnation and demand that the schools also teach their native languages.
    Equal protection under the law and the anti discrimination laws will support the parents.
    No school district has the financial resources (or staf)to comply with having to teach hundreds of different languages in order to comply with the existing laws.
    The only option left is to teach just English as the only mandatory language.

    • ANDERSONDODIE

      NO THIS IS AMERICA...ITS CALLED ENGLISH
      ITS CALLED GOD BLESS AMERICA
      HALF OF YOU CAN'T SPEAK ENGLISH..

  • Blueviolets

    As an elective yes but mandated no! The only mandated subjects should be math, science, English. The rest should be electives. Half the children I hear speaking now days don't even have a good command of the English language so learning a second language hardly seems worth the effort.

    • Robert

      The Biggest problem with our public schools is that they no longer teach. They indoctrinate ingrates K-12 there should be no electives at all. The quality of students that aren't public schools are turning out is a joke in the inner cities 50% dropout in high school. The way to put America back on the right track is to remove The Progressives from our school systems.

      To start with all students in grades seven through 12 should wear uniforms and should have mandatory attendance. If your attendance drops for no reason that you need to be shifted into another program where your attendance can be assured. Troublemakers in the classroom will not be tolerated they will be put into a separate program tailored specifically for their mindset very much like a boot camp. The schools for the worst offenders will basically be boarding schools where they will get an education whether they like it or not.

      The basics of what needs to be taught in our schools and K-6 grade the basics are of the utmost importance and before student is passed from the sixth grade on they will be required to meet specific goals. You cannot build a cathedral on shifting sand in other words if you don't have solid rock base you end up with the building that isn't worth anything. And our students at this time are showing the world that the United States is a third rate nation best.

      The other thing that needs to be done at age 18 every student will be required to report for basic training in the military and this training to take a minimum of six months. At that time individual have the choice of staying in the military, going active reserve, or going inactive reserve and going back to secondary school or trade school. The only way to describe America's youth at this point in time is dismal. They have no self respect, no work ethic, no moral background, and no respect for anyone else in authority.

  • Robert

    our schools need to mandate gun control!
    Good gun control means being able to hit your target 100% of the time and only your target. And to do it safely. If gun safety was taught in our schools as well as marksmanship we would be 100% better off. There would be no accidental shootings, in Oregon the NRA offered to fund the Eddie Eagle program in our schools . And the main context of the Eddie Eagle program is gun safety the first thing the children are taught as if you see a gun don't touch it find an adult to tell about.
    Oregon legislators have their heads so far up their anal orifices that they rejected the help.

    And in teaching good gun control it would be good to use a target of the slimy, lowlife, stone aged, ignorant, and above all else equal towel heads.

    "Principal Nicky Kram Rosen". Rosen is a Jewish name if I'm not mistaken. If she is, in fact, Jewish, then she needs her head examined. Jews, as a group, are a fairly intelligent bunch when it comes to book smarts but they seem to lack a desire for self preservation. One would think after millions of Jews were exterminated in WWII the Jew would have realized appeasement and capitulation doesn't work. You don't talk evil down. You beat it down.
