Public Funding For A Religious School In New York City

Is it Catholic? Nooooooo. Is it Baptist? Nooooooo. Episcopal? Nooooooo. Presbyterian? Nooooooo. Jewish? Nooooooo. It's Islamic! The Khalil Gibran International Academy. That's right, it's perfectly acceptable to use public funds for a Madrassa. In fact the public school will have a religious advisory board. What. The. Fuck?!?!

The principal will be one Dhabah ("Debbie") Almontaser, who had the following to say about the September 11 terrorist attacks:
Arabs or Muslims, Ms. Almontaser says, are innocent of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001: "I don't recognize the people who committed the attacks as either Arabs or Muslims." Instead, she blames September 11 on Washington's foreign policies, saying they "can have been triggered by the way the USA breaks its promises with countries across the world, especially in the Middle East, and the fact that it has not been a fair mediator."
I'm sure the only way Ms. Almontaser would consider America a "fair mediator" is if we parroted the anti-Jewish "death to Israel" mantra and sent weapons to Hezbollah like good little dhimmis.

Imagine the outrage if a Christian or Jewish school were being opened with public money. Good grief. May God help us, because it doesn't look like we can help ourselves.
