June 29, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - After a multi-year struggle the so-called Kahlil Gibran International Academy in New York is finally shackling its doors.
The move represents a major victory for local citizens and those concerned about national security who drew attention to the hidden agenda behind the school, that it was intended to serve as a publicly funded madrassa, a pathway to instilling a radical Islamic perspective in unsuspecting children lured into the institution upon the false promise of it being some manner of multicultural nirvana.
Perhaps now, the know-it-nothing do-gooders and Islamists, will halt the use of the children of this district as pawns in a larger political battle.
Regarding the battle, Mayor Bloomberg, the various school boards, bureaucrats and the private philanthropy attempting to underwrite this monstrosity all deserve shared blame for pushing an obviously fraudulent idea in the first place.
Congrats to those who fought so successfully and valiantly in the face of a campaign of left-wing invective to see this through to the end. It's truly a victory for sanity in an area where that is in short supply.
