Fortress AmeriKKKa - Day 479!
Khalil Gibran International Academy opened in New York. It is an all-Arabic school, and is a part of the New York City Public School System. Once again, AmeriKKKans are protesting.
The school will follow the same curriculum as other schools in the New York school system, except the classes will be taught in Arabic. (That oughtta make the "God Dun It" ID classes interesting when Jebus comes up in the lesson plan.)
Oddly, no one is using the "They're in AmeriKKKa, learn English" chant. The New York school system already has other dual language schools and nary a word has been said about them. Instead, critics point out that the foe we fight in the Middle East speaks Arabic, and that the school might become a breeding ground for terror, even though the majority of students are neither Arab nor Islamic.
Arabic doesn't equal terrorism any more that AmeriKKKa equals intolerance. Wait. Maybe I need another analogy.
