Collapse from within

Reader comment on item: Teach Arabic or Recruit Extremists?

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), Sep 5, 2007 at 16:47

Thanks once again to Mr. Pipes! Who else covers this stuff? Objectively, too. Emotionalism is not the way to cut through to an issue. What I'm thinking......the way Communism over the last couple of generations has tried to take over in the U.S. from within.......we're now seeing quite possibly a collapse from within via Islamism. My estimation is based on the historical track record of the "never forget" and stubborn/patient (when required) psyche of Islamism. Seems at odds with the emotionalism of what gets media play ( the dancing-in-the-street rabid exhibitionism after 9-11, etc.). But no less a threat.........I agree with Mr. Pipes' comment, "Arabic-language instruction at pre-collegiate level is needed". That also would prevent the much- too-young impressionable children from being indoctrinated when they're at such a vulnerable level. And the freedom offered in this country is still vindicated. WHY is it neccessary to teach Arabic (not an easy language) in elementary schools anyways? High school, perhaps. Only as a language, same as French or Spanish.

Seems to me separation of Church and State is THE application to remedy and prevent the subtle incrementalistic Islamic agenda with reguards to our schools. WE"RE ONTO YOU GUYS............. -JS

Submitting....
