Well, let us face the facts. To hide their real motives and still achieve acceptance, they had to come up with a name which was unknown among the general public and even among the school bureaucracy. So they called it Khalil Gibran Academy. Obviously, they could not get approval if they had called it Bin Laden Academy, even though, in reality it may turn out to be Bin Laden Jihad Academy.
