Are Americans naive! Is this a new Jihad training center, this time in USA!

Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn

You should know that learning Arabic is related to learning Koran and its teaching, and related to learning the islamic traditions, their way of thinking and life style.

I will tell you from my own experience. I am christian and I was in a Christian foreign school in Egypt for all of my 12 grades. However, we were obliged to learn Arabic and Koran against our own will and our parent's will.

We were forced to memorize specific Koran verses to pass our Arabic exams. These verses usually promote hatred, disrespect to women and to other religions.

By allowing such schools in America, you are allowing to have new muslim generations that will not feel that they are americans but they are arabs and muslims. This new generation shall think the same way the arabs think and shall have the same lifestyle, more or less.

So you can create, inside America, a new generation of Qaeda candidates for Jihad.

You should know that teaching arabic can not be seperated from teaching Koran with all its intolerant principles.

this is different from learning Arabic as a young child, and learning arabic as a second or third language, or to learn Arabic as a grown up with already established set of values and beliefs.
