NYC Elementary School Requires Arabic Lessons

Says Muslim teacher: These kids are like sponges. Inshallah. via Manhattan Elementary School Requires Arabic Lessons.

A public elementary school in upper Manhattan is requiring its students to learn Arabic. The reason given for this decision, according to Nicky Kram Rosen, principal of PS 368, is that the school can get International Baccalaureate Standing more easily.

In September, all 200 students in second through fifth grade will be taught the language twice a week for 45 minutes, just as much time as is spent on science and music. Rosen apparently selected Arabic instead of the more traditional French or Spanish because that was more valued in the International Baccalaureate standards.

Angela Jackson, CEO of the Global Language Project, which backs Rosen’s plan, said, “She proposed this to the parent association. They were very supportive. Arabic has been identified as a critical-need language. It means they can spin the globe and decide where they want to work and live.” Jackson added that if a student objects to learning Arabic, administrators will deal with that on a case-by-case basis.

The teacher of the pilot program that is already in place, Mohamed Mamdouh, said, “Soon, Arabic will be a global language like French and Spanish. These kids are like sponges. It’s amazing to see their progress.’’The IB program, first developed in Switzerland in the 1960’s, first took hold in the United States in private schools as an alternative to the AP program.  At its inception in 1968 until 1976, the program was financed partly by UNESCO. Now associated with the United Nations Economic and Social Council, it endorsed the Earth Charter, a declaration of principles of sustainability that came out of the UN In the fall of 2009, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gave the program a three-year $2.4 million grant.

So the UN, which is dominated in numbers by Arabic-speaking countries, can now surreptitiously train our youngsters to prepare for the future by learning Arabic in schools. At what point does the indoctrination come to a halt?

It’s only going to get worse and more violent. See Europe where they resort to rape.

  1. Time to remove your kids from the indoctrination camps also known as public school. Forcing them to learn Arabic will make it much easier to convert them to islam. Soon they’ll teach our children how to slit our throats while we sleep.


  3. NYC cannot graduate kids who are able to read, write and speak standard English. Now, they can be bi-lingual ignorant illiterati.

    • Couldn’t agree more. And the Principal has a Jewish name?! The parents were “very supportive?” Well, they’re certainly not very smart, wide awake or up with the news. Of course, arabic might be useful in the future if enough “dhimmis” cave in to muslim demands.

  4. Arabic is a dead language, means it is worthless. No one should speak arabic. Waste of tax-school dollars.

    A very, very stupid idea. All parents should refuse to let their children study arabic, better for the children to spend the time on math and science.

  5. Double edged sword here. Can be used to influence kids. However, leave it to children to ask uncomfortable questions-about the religion of peace.

  6. Ten years down the line when these kids are spouting Arabic and yelling allahu akbar behind a suicide vest his oh so liberal parents will be asking where they went wrong. That’s if he doesn’t’ kill them first.

  7. Rosen & Jackson are both nuttier than fruit cakes, full of bull s**t, and should be horse whipped and run out of town!

  8. This is one of a number of ways that the Socialists in the Democratic Party are propagandizing Americans to join the Muslim terrorists against Israel and Christians. This is part of the fulfillment of Rev 18:2, which foretold that Babylon the Great, which is the USA, would become a prison for every hateful bird, which includes the Socialists and their Muslim cohorts.

  9. It is a Black school with a majority black student body. Knowing Arabic will not prepare you for an international job. It will prepare you to convert to Islam when you find yourself in prison.

    If this school wanted to prepare its students for the future they would teach them Chinese not Arabic.

  10. What about spanish, french, german? I guess these are all conquered infidels, anyway. The religion of murder marches on driven by the left and other extremist groups. This arabic stuff is so racist it makes the KKK look good. White or black burquas? And I have seen white burquas. Who can tell whats under the sheet? Not the banks being robbed. Not Canada. It lets them on airplanes without inspection. Muzzies are no longer inspected now. Call the TSA to stop Canadian planes from landing in the US

  11. I actually think this is a great idea. May be we can begin to understand the Middle East and make our way into building bridges of understanding. May be these kids can be ambassadors of goodwill. Who knows!

  12. This is a trojan horse. Used to bring in more Muslims and one they are here and their families are here they will will quit and the cycle will start anew. The halal meat does this same practice with their butchers.

  14. unless we are training spies or translators our kids do not need to learn Arabic. The fact is most MUSLIMS cannot read or write Arabic, some can only recite the Koran but have no understanding of the language, and most do not speak this language in their daily lives. Like Hebrew for Jews or Latin for Catholics, it is the languageof the prayers but not their daily speech.

    . There is no great body of literature written in Arabic, no tomes of scientific research in this language b/c ISLAM decrees no knowledfge is necessary but the Quran.
    The ROMANCE languages help our kids understand OUR OWN LANGUAGE’s roots, if we want kids to do commerce SPANISH and MANDARIN would be the choicest languages. IN a few years USA will be HALF SPANISH speakers not MUSLIMS.

    Mandatory language is not FREEDOM of choice- it is anti democratic to force them to only ONE language. It offends those who want their kids immersed in languages of their families or for their future fields of study (for example art history students are encouraged to learn German and French)
    To live anywhere in Southern USA right now- the language in use is SPANISH. Our bigest trade partners are right in this hemisphere.

    languages spoken by Muslims include, Farsi, Hindi, Albanian, Turkish, Tamil, Bahasa (indonesia, Malaysia) Pashtu, Urdu, various African languages ENGLISH, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, etc.

    The fact is most MUSLIMS canot understand each toehr’s langauages EITHER

  15. Agreed, yes there maybe a need in the political sector for Arabic due to growing terrorism and cultural clashes, but that’s a mere hand full. Global commerce is where fluent Chinese, spoken and written would give future Americans the chance to make inroads into a mass market. By the way Chinese are all learning English not Arabic, does that offer any clues?
    I’ve read the Chinese and Koreans are really going for gold in maths and science too, probably more useful than being able to read the Arabian nights in the original.
    How can you expect an elementary school child to make any progress with two 45 minute lessons a week. Hold off till they go to University and then they choose it themselves (if they want) apparently it takes many years of full time study.
    It sounds like the school is just saying “look how trendy and politically correct we are!” without realising they’re wasting public resources, they probably don’t care.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
