New York City will get its first public school dedicated to Arabic language and culture in September 2007


Officials say that half of its classes will eventually be taught in Arabic.

The Khalil Gibran International Academy is among 40 new schools that the Department of Education is opening next academic year.

School officials say they are eager to recruit New Yorkers from a diverse background to the school -- not just those with Arabic backgrounds.

The school is named after a Lebanese poet and philosopher. It will eventually serve 500 to 600 students, all of them sixth graders.

As someone who survived 9-11. I can only imagine what will be taught in Arabic at this school. Maybe "Allahu Akbar!" I hope it burns to the ground just like the Towers did with all the students inside including the school officials as well.

Now Muslims will be able to learn how to become terrorists without leaving New York City.

They learned in Jersey City just fine. I am so angry I could go burn a mosque. Eventually, it will come to that, just wait.

Let's hope the CIA and FBI will be bugging this "school."
