The NYPost blows the whistle this morning on inflammatory “intifada t-shirts” sold by activists linked to the principal of the taxpayer-funded “Khalil Gibran International Academy:”
Activists with ties to the principal of the city’s controversial new Arabic-themed school are hawking T- shirts that glorify Palestinian terror, The Post has learned.
The inflammatory tees boldly declare “Intifada NYC” – apparently a call for a Gaza-style uprising in the Big Apple.
The organization selling the shirts, Arab Women Active in Art and Media, shares office space on Brooklyn’s Third Avenue with the Saba Association of American Yemenis.
Dhabah “Debbie” Almontaser, principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy – which is scheduled to open in Brooklyn next month – is a board member and spokeswoman for Saba.
Almontaser defends the shirts:
“The word [intifada] basically means ’shaking off.’ That is the root word if you look it up in Arabic,” she said.
“I understand it is developing a negative connotation due to the uprising in the Palestinian-Israeli areas. I don’t believe the intention is to have any of that kind of [violence] in New York City.
“I think it’s pretty much an opportunity for girls to express that they are part of New York City society . . . and shaking off oppression.”
Assimilation = Glorifying terror. Welcome to Sharia 101.
Stop the Madrassa says “Shake off, THIS, Chancellor Klein and Mayor Bloomberg.”
