Mandatory Arabic at NYC Public Elementary School

The repercussions of 9/11 continue to be felt:

An upper Manhattan public elementary school will be the first in the city to require that students study Arabic, officials said yesterday.

Beginning next semester, all 200 second- through fifth-graders at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights will be taught the language twice a week for 45 minutes — putting it on equal footing with science and music courses. …

Mohamed Mamdouh, who teaches the pilot program, said, “Soon, Arabic will be a global language like French and Spanish. These kids are like sponges. It’s amazing to see their progress.’’

Too bad it wasn’t Peruvians who flew those planes into the World Trade Center. Then kids would be learning Spanish, which might actually come in useful. Also, we wouldn’t have a president named Barack Hussein Obama.

    I’ll bet the first thing they will learn is how to yell “Allahu Ahkbar.”

  2. Momster says:

    Next order of business will be to have a “Culture Week” where the girls in the class will wear head scarves. The the kids will have an art class where they design prayer rugs.

    Home school or transfer NOW.

  4. Momster says:

    In gym class the children will learn to kneel and touch their foreheads to the floor. No need to hit the showers–they will just wash their feet.

    Arabic is being offered to students, it’s not mandatory

    Editor’s Note: A previous version of this post, and the headline, said the Arabic program would be mandatory at the Hamilton Heights School. School officials said that while the lessons will be offered to all students, it is not mandatory.

    In other breaking news, schools across America make the native language of Ted Kaczynski compulsory for all lessons.

    The entire Middle East is having a good laugh on us….one more step toward dhimmitude.

  7. Sam Adams says:

    This will aid the little ones when studying the Koran becomes mandator….optional, too.

    You want Polish to be compulsory? Kaczynski is Polish. I don’t like Ted Kaczynski though. He’s a psychopath. I wouldn’t mind having Polish or Russian be required languages. Those are actually useful, unlike Arabic which is the supremacist goal to make us all speak us to submit to them.

    Wouldn’t mind having Polish be compulsory.

  9. Momster says:

    Well, Justin, Na zdrowie! Don’t they have enough trouble just teaching the little darlings English??!!? If they could just do that I would be amazed.

  10. wingmann says:

    Notice the operative word…R E Q U I R E….nice to still live in the free world huh?

    HAD ENOUGH YET ? ? ?

  11. Jill says:

    Kaczynski is Polish No, Kaczynski is American, born in the USA to American born parents, his native language is English.

    Arabic is #5 for numbers of native speakers (232 million), behind Hindu (240m), English (328m), Spanish (329) and Mandarin (845m. The school also offers Spanish and Mandarin to its students.

    Polish is #26 with a mere 40m native speakers. Behind Pashto, Min Nan and Gujarati.

    In terms of the economy Poland is also an ‘also ran’. The Arab league plus Saudi Arabia & UAE are about #4 in the world by GDP, Poland is #22.

    But sure, learn Polish, learning more languages is always useful.

  12. wingmann says:

    Soon they can be made to recite their pledge in arabic I suppose…like this Texas school “ASKED” their kids!

  13. […] Mandatory Arabic at NYC Public Elementary School I suppose one should expect this from people that keep re-electing Bloomberg. An upper Manhattan public elementary school will be the first in the city to require that students study Arabic, officials said yesterday. […]

    Justin, Jill is engaging in moral equivalence – a leftist English speaking nut plants a few bombs = moslems blowing up people on a nearly daily basis somewhere in the world, therefore English=Arabic, Western Civilization=islamism, etc.

  15. whotothewhat says:

    Geez what will our Chinese master’s think? I thought mandarin was the global language of the future.

  16. Chris in N. Va. says:

    Gotta spend those lavishly surplus and super-abundant taxpayer dollars to make sure that the next generation of good little dhimmis (and dummies!) is ready to assume its dutiful place in the coming worldwide caliphate.

  17. Uncle Pinko says:

    Is every person who speaks Arabic a terrorist? I don’t think so.

    But yes, some people who speak Arabic are terrorists. And maybe it’s a good idea that we as a nation know the language of our enemies?

  18. Alan says:

    Is the ACLU paying attention? To study Arabic is to study Islam. I don’t particularly care if one studies Arabic, but this level of religious association would be enough to get a Christian study thrown out.

    You can’t speak conversational Arabic without invoking the name Allah in every other sentence.

    From Wikipedia:

    “Some Muslims present a monogenesis of languages and claim that the Arabic language was the language revealed by God for the benefit of mankind and the original language as a prototype symbolic system of communication, based upon its system of triconsonantal roots, spoken by man from which all other languages were derived, having first been corrupted.”

  19. Elizabeth says:

    Ok, I’ve had enough. We need another crusade. What happened to all the GOD fearing Christians in this country?? Is it possible to send all these Islam loving communists over to Saudi Arabia or some other hellhole? They’d be much happier there, in their misery.

  20. frank k. says:

    Here’s hoping that one of the first phrases they teach the kids is how to say , “drop-the-grenade-and slowly-back-away” ….

  21. CT says:

    Arabic education is entirely appropriate provided it is taught by Jeff Dunham with Achmed.

  22. CT says:

    Arabic is the language of a death cult and slaves.

  23. Antisocialist says:

    Here’s three words you need: Shaitan kuffar islam

    And three more: Muhammad bin Shaitan.

  24. Jodie says:

    My guess is one of the first sentences the children will learn is:

    الهولوكوست هي خرافة أن اليهود تتكون تشكل كضحايا.

    Which is translated as:

    “The Holocaust is a myth that Jews made up to pose as victims”

    Welcome to Obama’s Sharia nation.

    Its going to be funny as hell when one day New York wakes up to 70,000 teachers (read: indoctrinators), 15,000 public schools (read: indoctrination centers) complete with full support staff and a bloated administration that bows to the east 5 times a week…..and only 41 students in the entire fucking county attending public schools!!!

    THATS how we deal with shit like this, since we’re the ONLY population that thinks ahead, AND is made to pay for everything they do, when the demcorats start doing retarded shit like this, we go somewhere the retards aren’t!
    Look at every city run by dems for the past 30 years…th ONLY populations they have are the idiots who refuse to move and abandon the cities, liberals who craeted the whole mess, and those who’ll destroy it all the second the free ride ends….I got out of Cleveland 15 years ago, now live on 190 acres of Ohio farm land, and have awesome fields of fire from my decks….OOORRAAAAHHH!!!!

  26. House of Kell says:

    I’ve always wondered how one teaches a 6 year old to say “fuck you, mother fuckers” in arabic…?

    Oh…I know….alluha achkbar….yeah!!!!

  27. Vic Kelley says:

    “grayjohn says: Home school or transfer NOW.”

    Amen to that.

    I wonder how the students are doing at PS 368. Maybe they’re all prodigies and are doing so well in all their other studies that they have the time & skill to learn Arabic. Good for them. Muy bien.

    I’ve watched youtube videos of NYC school youths. Those urban youths aren’t so bright I don’t think this pilot program will be successful at regular NYC schools.

    And isn’t this racist anyway? Coloreds are not going to want to learn Arabic. The Arabs were the original slave traders. And you just wait & see what happens when T’ameka and Delashundra are told they have to wear a veil and robe. Islam is the religion of submission and coloreds aren’t really in to submitting to authority.

  28. John Poe says:

    In 2006, President George W. Bush introduced the National Security Language initiative, which gave funding to school for the teaching of “critical languages”, including Arabic.

    Clearly, Dubya was a crypto-muslim.

  29. meshakhad says:

    If nothing else, consider this statement:

    “It is wise to learn the ways of one’s enemies.”

    Back in the ’70’s my roommate in college was a math major who took Russian in high school. The CIA paid him to read russian magazines.
