Arab School All About "Peace"

Try not to laugh too much. Apparently, they offered up this tripe with a straight face.

Arab School's Peace Goals
August 8, 2007 -- Internships with Muslim lawyers, trips to the Middle East and community activism are the hallmarks of the city's Arab-themed school scheduled to open this fall.
I guess education is out of the question.

What they apparently have planned is to have the "students" hang out with agitators figuring out ways to file frivolous lawsuits over perceived slights to their cherished faith, trips to Arab hellholes, and learning how to march to demand special privileges.

This is what a "school" is suppose to be about?

How about learning United States history? Reading? Writing? Science? Math?

Guess that's not on the agenda.
The controversial Khalil Gibran International Academy's grant application for private funds says the school wants to produce "agents of change" and "ambassadors of peace" by focusing on the "complexity of Arab history and the diversity of Arab culture."
Fine, if that's what you want to do, move to some Arab land, where no doubt you can learn the joys of Arab culture.

But this is America. Try to assimilate. You know, it just might work. Hundreds of millions have done it before.
Principal Dhabah "Debbie" Almontaser - who backtracked this week from comments condoning the "Intifada NYC" T-shirts that are sold by activists with ties to her - insists political dogma will not be on the curriculum.

All students, no matter their ethnicity, or religion, will be welcome, she said.
