A Soft Jihad Grows in Brooklyn

The inculcation of our youth is  the most damaging front of the jihad in America. It’s nefarious effect is on display on college campuses nationwide. This is the poison fruit of the hijacking our education system.

And of course, the "Arabic" school is stonewalling the Citizen’s group.

A Soft Jihad Grows in Brooklyn

by Aryeh Spero, Human Events

In Brooklyn, New York, a public school named the Khalil Gibran
International Academy (KGIA) has opened. Its primary purpose —
demonstrated by its advisory board, its apparent curriculum and the
lining of school walls with pictures of Arab figures and heroes, is
to teach Arabic and Muslim language and culture and to inculcate the
children with radical Islamic ideology.

One of the school’s more notorious pubic supporters is convicted cop-
killer and former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal
. The school’s
advisory board includes several imams, one of whom has displayed the
Muslim Brotherhood slogan on his mosque’s website: "Jihad is our way,
and death in the way of Allah is our promised end."

A spokesperson for the school speaks not of the duties of American
citizenship but the aspiration towards "global" citizenship. Perhaps
that is why this public school, unlike P.S. 132, calls itself
an "international academy."

Many New Yorkers are appalled that taxpayer money is being used to
finance a public school whose purpose will likely advance the Islamic
religion and Islamist ethnic identity.
Three local parents, two of
whom are teachers, started a grassroots effort called Stop the
Madrassa to question this inchoate madrassa disguised as a neutral
public school.


Immediately a request was made of the Department of Education, under
the Freedom of Information Act, as to the curriculum, teachers,
lesson plans and textbooks of the school. This is not unusual given
that schools — for reasons of transparency and accreditation – must
pre-publicize educational content prior to the school year. Indeed,
many are wondering about the use of public money for an institution,
such as this, with religious overtones. The response to these
legitimate concerns is that those that are asking these questions
must be "racists."

For example, Mumia Abu-Jamal asserts: "Racist and right-wing groups
and media outlets have demonized the school…"
Councilmember Leticia
James talks of "anti-Arab racism …" The New York Collective of
Radical Educators, in its statement supporting KGIA, called on "New
York City to continue to be a voice in the struggle against anti-
Arab/anti-Islamic prejudice…" Even Brooklyn’s Borough President,
Democrat Marty Markowitz, labeled inquiry into the
school "disgraceful, xenophobic, and racist."

The intent of calling "racist" those who question the school’s goals
and legitimacy is, no doubt, to silence critics of the school’s
agenda. This attempt to silence Americans is very similar to CAIR’s
lawsuit that was brought by Muslim organizations against citizens on
an airplane who alerted flight attendants of the fear they felt
witnessing highly erratic conduct by six belligerent and provocative
imams on a plane.

What should be every American’s right to self-defense, or the right
to inform appropriate authorities of possible harm or danger, has
now been characterized by a number of Muslim organizations
as "criminal" and, somehow, a "violation of civil rights" worthy of
civil suit. Fortunately, House Republican Steve Pearce introduced the
Protecting Americans Fighting Terrorism Act of 2007, protecting
citizens from lawsuits when simply informing authorities of possible

It appears that yet another strategy for silencing critics of radical
Islam is emerging. It is alleging that critics of suspicious Muslim
activities are guilty of "stalking," "harassing," or "assaulting."
This new mode of attack is, it seems, being hatched here in Brooklyn.
Dhabah Almontaser, the school’s former principal, recently claimed
that those non-Muslim community members who were critical of her
stewardship at the school "stalked me wherever I went and verbally
assaulted me with vicious anti-Arab and anti-Muslim comments."


In an interview with Amnesty International in Europe in January 2002,
Almontaser stated that "I have realized that U.S. foreign policy is
racist; in the `war against terror’ people of color are the target."
Such attitudes about our country raise legitimate concerns as to
whether such a person should be a school principal of children for
which the tax system is paying.

Most Americans, except for die-hard liberals and leftists, are
prepared to fight the terrorism that we call the "hard jihad." The
left, though, seems unwilling to fight the "soft jihad" assaulting
our culture and way of life
. Many Americans who in the past were
proud of that unique American penchant for being outspoken and
truthful are now being cowed into silence by being called a racist
when they are trying to protect themselves and the institutions they
admire and love from deliberate damage and obliteration.

Those New Yorkers opposed to this school and those alarmed that such
schools may spread across the country are not backing down and
apparently will not be intimidated by legal threats. Citizens for
American Values president Stuart Kaufman states, "We will not be
silenced through threats of lawsuits or being falsely called names
such as `racists’ and `haters’ and `bigots’ or other efforts to
silence American citizens exercising their right to freedom of

In addition to the cop-killer, radical imams, and anti-Americans
associated with
the school, Stop the Madrassa is also up against the usual
multiculturalists who are pushing Islamic schools — though they
themselves are not Muslims — as a further means to radically
transform our culture and diminish the concept of Americanism
historically taught in our public schools. The liberal left is a
witting collaborator in the soft jihad that has already arrived on
our shores and is moving westward, one that wishes to incrementally
carve out Islamic principalities, and brazen influence, in our midst.
