Jihad Factory in New York!!!

Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn

I thought these factories are usually located in rural areas like Blye (OR) or in New Mexico or South/North Dakota, or even in the desert of Arizona/Nevada. Maybe after 'academic' instruction in Brooklyn, they will have couple of months of practical training in rural areas.

I will not be surprised that soon they will bring lot of 'foreign' students for Jihad preparation (its name contains INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY). Do they offer scholarships? It may become an extension of Lal Masjid (Islamabad). What are they going to teach? Memorizing Koran!!

Is it a publicly funded school? If yes, can it pass the constitutional test of separation of mosque and the state?

If we let it happen here, then we deserve the consequences. Looks like we have not learnt anything from 9/11. Looks like, Arabs are going to outsmart us again.

I am a liberal but not naive. If one wants to learn Arabic, then make it a part of a regular public school -- after all, they teach foreign languages in some of them.
