Just look at Europe

Reader comment on item: Debating the Khalil Gibran International Academy

Submitted by Don (Pakistan), May 16, 2008 at 23:00

Political correctness, inclusion, multicultural diversity, and all the other nice, liberal policies is now eating away at Europe from the inside, and this is how it started...with exactly the same kind of thing Mr. Pipes is trying to stop. Europe's culture and very survivel as a Western society is directly under threat now because of these policies, and it didn't take but a couple of generations.

We're not dealing with Navajo schools in Arizona, Inuit schools in Alaska, or even Catholic schools that have been part of our culture for generations. This is Arab, and the core and heart of Arab culture is Islam and the two cannot be separated. Islam dominates its culture. Even the Qur'an has its own "formal" language in Arabic and Arabs must understand it to understand the Qur'an in Arabic. Islam is a belief system totally at odds with our own culture's belief system.

You may argue that part of our culture is to be inclusive and accepting, but be warned, to include and accept Islam is like including and accepting your executioner into your home. It is inherently hostile to us. Thanks, Mr. Pipes, for the work you do.
