Remember the proposed Arabic-language school that had Crazy Pammy so worked up? It’s still a big deal to her, and to others as well. There’s a blog dedicated to stopping the school (“Stop The Madrassa” at Blogspot), and the wingnutty New York Sun has a whole collection of articles on the subject.
The school’s opponents seem to be concerned that the principal has shady links to Radical Islam, in addition to the Crazy Pammy/Mark Steyn belief that “Arabic is not just another language.”
UPDATE, 2007/07/28, 15:45
Here’s how the school was described on “Hannity & Colmes”:
HANNITY: And if you live in New York City, guess what? Your tax dollars could be going to fund a madrassa. That’s right. It’s a story that will shock every American. We’ll break it wide open right here on Hannity & Colmes. [...] And later, the city that fell victim to the biggest terrorist attack in world history challenges the separation of church and state and using tax dollars to fund an all-Muslim school. That story coming up straight ahead. [...] Coming up, controversy over an Arabic school set to open in Brooklyn, New York, paid for with taxpayer dollars. So will this be a breeding ground for radicals? We’ll debate. We’ll let you decide straight ahead.
Hannity simply lies, calling it an “all-Muslim” “madrassa.” Unbelievable.
