Allahu Akbar… Arabic Now Mandatory In NY Public Elementary School

Allahu Akbar!

This is outrageous.  A New York public grade school has just made it mandatory to study Arabic beginning this Fall.

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.’’

Our “kids are like sponges”?  Yes, they are.  So, they should be taught about Western Civilization, and our heritage that is rooted in freedom, and individual value.  But, that was removed from school curriculum long ago by the radical secular Progressives.  Now, they want our children be able to read the Quran, listen to the draconian precepts of sharia, and watch Al Jazeera inveigh against Christianity, democracy, equality, and freedom in its native Arabic language.  When Communism aimed its missiles and armies at our nation President Reagan didn’t fold and force our children to learn Russian.

Leave it to the Liberals to try to completely destroy all that is good about our culture and turn it into something distorted, ugly, and dangerous.

Hat tip: Gini

Update:  According to Barenakedislam,

I wonder if they will tell the students in Harlem that the word for black in Arabic is the same as the word for slave? In the Arabic language, even before the prophet Mohammed, a slave owner and trader himself, the word slave – ‘Abd’ – was the same word used to describe Black Africans. Arabs always looked upon Black people as inferior beings. Muslims, today, still do.

    Actually,I think this is a good idea as long as they’re not getting sharia indoctrination.
    We need good patriotic translators.

    Upside: They can read the Koran and actually see the hate that it is filled with.
    Downside: Most won’t and will continue to be like the little “sponges” that they are and march, march, march over the cliff, taking the entire nation with them.
    Another in a series of death by a thousand cuts.

    There’s more here than meets the eye. Arabic is the language of Islam. The eternal Koran, the one that “exists” in heaven as Muslims believe is written in Arabic. Therefore learning Arabic is nothing more than a means of introducing even more Islam to the gullible.

  • burt

    These student can’t read in English and you expect them to read Arabic?

  • bigkahuna

    How about learning English first… Thyen maybe a business class or entrepeneurship ?


  • BuddyG

    Sigh . . .

  • stuart

    I think thats great. The kids can learn Arabic words like taquyya, or jizya or even dhimmi.
    The little girls in particular can learn all about Shariah. Just don’t teach them to drive though.

  • mg4us

    that is why we need to take back our schools. . . and constrain the Teachers Union. . . who has been infiltrated with socialists, marxists and racists (pushing an affirmative action agenda).

    Now they are teaching Arabic. . in a school where most students don’t even do well in English or math. . . in Harlem!!!

    Wonder where that Harlem School ranks on Math and English scores?
    Yes. .Harlem. . .as in da’Hood! I wonder if they will uses arabic versus from the Koran as poetry?

    Need to get back to Reading, Writing, arithmetic as well as American Constitutional History and basic traditional science not global warming hoax science.

    Just another path to mediocrity

  • well now

    This being the very Liberal Upper West Side, I’m sure the parents were all for it. On one hand if the kids grow up and become military translators I’m alright with that.
    However i wonder of these kids are going to learn about clitorectomies, stonings,honor killings beheadings, hands and feet being chopped off ,6 year old girls getting married to 58 year old men. etc etc etc.

    This is the first step that leads to the next step. The next step will be requiring children from these grade levels to dress in Muslim garb and to learn about the call to prayer in order to “enlighten the children, and have them evolve towards diversity.”

    Mark my words folks, it’s coming if this is allowed to stand.

    But PS 368 is a so-called “choice’’ school and no kids, even those living nearby, are forced to attend it.

    Is that “choice” aspect accurate? Local people should pull their kids out of there and find out…

    Our Government has a shortage of Arabic translators. There needs to be a reason for this and none other then EAST coast, N.Y. Liberal state will be the first to implement this.

    It is so impossible to believe that we have seen so many social issues come down in just 3 1/2 years. I hope that America is paying close attention to the damage this government has done during these short years, yet, seem like an eternity to me.

    WARNING: Our nation has so many problems and the Debt is all on Obama’s watch. The nation is becoming Socialized and demoralized.

    Our children are being taught by some really bias and liberal teachers. Indoctrinating them and a refusal to teach them the basic to get ahead in this world. Adding on more is not the answer, the answer is to teach our history, math essentials, science and learn English properly. This is evidence Obama and our government is further confusing our children.

    Diversity, Socialization and indoctrination. We need to teach them success and that they can reach for the stars and actually become what ever they wish. And make money and have things the desire and still be contributors and creators in the next generation.

    Forcing the study of arabic is forcing study of the Koran. The passages that will be required reading will surely have tales from the life of Mohammed. ….Recitations of the Shahada …..and a spelling out of rules for the payment of dhimmi taxes all Americans must pay inorder to save yourself from a nuclear blast .
