In a time here children are having trouble learning right form wrong, and it’s a trial to get them a quality education anymore, New York City has instituted a new pilot program to offer a regular second language course. And I’m not talking French, Italian or Spanish, I’m taking Arabic. And with a Muslim population of fewer than 4%, it’s a true head scratcher. From the WSJ:
City officials are joining founders of the program at Public School 368 for an official announcement Wednesday.
The program is sponsored by the educational nonprofit Global Language Project and by the Qatar Foundation International.
Second-graders at P.S. 368 have been learning Arabic in a 10-week pilot program. All the students in the second through fifth grades will learn Arabic starting in the fall. They will have two 45-minute Arabic classes each week.
Global Languages Project founder Angela Jackson said the Arabic classes will be a draw for parents.
Several New York City high schools teach Arabic, and the Khalil Gibran International Academy in Brooklyn offers Arabic instruction to seventh- and eighth-graders.
The striving of jihad is primarily the striving to spread Islam and Islamic rule. This is much, much worse. This Stealth jihad has a good chance to transform U.S. society before most Americans have any idea of what’s happening.
I don’t know whether to ask why or just proclaim WTF…
Wake up America, the crescent’s shadow is coming for us all.
