Our friends at Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) are taking on the New York City Department of Education’s new Khalil Gibran International Academy in Brooklyn. It is widely believed that the school, ostensibly created to emphasize the learning of Arabic, will immerse its students in Islamic culture. TMLC claims the school will be “nothing more than a thinly disguised incubator for Islamic radicalization." ("New York City’s Khalil Gibran International Academy An Incubator For Islamist Radicalization").
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of TMLC , says his organization is representing a group of citizens opposed to the school.
In a statement that's exceptional, nowadays, for its candor and clarity, Thompson said:
“As uncomfortable as it makes one feel, we must understand that the political goal of radical Islam is to destroy our Judeo-Christian culture. And the KGIA is a Trojan Horse New York City is building for radical Islam with taxpayer money. That the Quran calls for Muslims to subjugate the world, especially Christians and Jews, is a fact that anyone can look up.”
Unfortunately, though anyone can look it up, hardly anyone ever does.
