NYC's School Board, Imported from Tel Aviv
Is it any wonder that when someone like Debbie Almontaser, former principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy in Brooklyn tries to get a tiny portion of NY's immense school system teaching some Muslim kids Arabic, all hell breaks loose?
NYC schools have 1.1 million students that must be a rich panoply of races, creeds and religions, but to look at the School Board, one might think they were living in Tel Aviv.
A modern day "witch hunt" against Debbie gladly given a stage by the American MSM and led by torch carriers, like Daniel Pipes of Campus Watch and David Horowitz and his Front Page rag.
In case after case, a network of right-wing activists has started an online furor based on a mélange of distorted or provably false charges against someone involved in Middle East studies. They supported these charges with quotes yanked out of context or entirely made up and wielded a broad brush of guilt by association. Right-wing media megaphoned the charges, stoking the furor. And mainstream media ultimately noticed and responded, often focusing their stories on the furor rather than the facts.
NY has over 3,000,000 million Italians, but is that reflected in the school board? Nope, only the Chosen Ones it seems get a seat. If you a member of these nine largest ethnic groups in NY, African, Puerto Rican, Italians, West Indians, Dominicans, Chinese, Irish, Russian or German, forget about working for the school board, unless you want a job as a janitor.
Frank Gaffney, raving Neocon and ardent supporter of the wars for the Jews, is dead set against teaching Arabic in NYC schools. Ditto for Daniel Pipes, self-appointed keeper of the flame and night stalker of schools and college campuses nationwide.
But in the end, as always, the Jews got what they wanted, dismissal of Debbie Almontaser from the Khalil Gibran International Academy, much to Mayor BLOOMBERG's delight. Debbie joined Professor Rashid Khalidi, the esteemed director of Columbia's Middle East Institute, also fired based on a pack of lies and distortions.
Could Debbie look to the New York affiliate of the United Federation of Teachers (UFT), for help? None was forthcoming from UFT head, Randi WEINGARTEN. Debbie was tossed to the flames to satisfy Judeofascism.
And isn't that what matters? To keep the Jews happy and in charge.... of eveything?
