An upper Manhattan public elementary school will be the first in the city to require that students study Arabic, officials said yesterday.


The stated goal of Islam is a United Sharia States of America. This is Obama’s goal as well.

Beginning next semester, all 200 second- through fifth-graders at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights will be taught the language twice a week for 45 minutes — putting it on equal footing with science and music courses.


GLOBAL APPEAL: Principal Kram Rosen (left) hopes the Arabic taught by Mohamed Mamdouh (right) earns worldwide prestige for PS 368.

One reason Principal Nicky Kram Rosen selected Arabic — as opposed to more common offerings, such as Spanish or French — is because it will help the school obtain a prestigious International Baccalaureate standing.

“She proposed this to the parent association. They were very supportive,” said Angela Jackson, CEO of the Global Language Project, which is backing the initiative.

“Arabic has been identified as a critical-need language,” she said, citing students’ future “career trajectories.’’

“It means they can spin the globe and decide where they want to work and live.”

Students now taking the class in a pilot program during their free afternoon periods said it’s been a challenge — but a rewarding one.

“I like Arabic class. I like the words we learn. I thought they sounded funny at first, now I think they sound cool,” said Nayanti Brown, a 7-year-old second-grader. “I teach my little sister the words I learn.’’

Nayanti said her mother was skeptical at first.

“When I gave my mom the [permission slip] to sign, she was shocked. [Now] she’s happy I’m in the class,” she said.

The Arabic requirement becomes mandatory in September. But PS 368 is a so-called “choice’’ school and no kids, even those living nearby, are forced to attend it. If the school ever enrolls a student who objects to learning Arabic, administrators will deal with that on a case-by-case basis, Jackson said.

Mohamed Mamdouh, who teaches the pilot program, said, “Soon, Arabic will be a global language like French and Spanish. These kids are like sponges. It’s amazing to see their progress.’’

Mamdouh yesterday played a version of duck, duck, goose with the kids using the Arabic words for mother and father — mama and baba — for ducks and geese.

He also played a version of Simon Says where he would say a word or phrase in Arabic like, “ma drasti” — my school — and make a gesture like opening a book.

Bella Moon Castro, 34, of Harlem, signed her son up and is glad he’ll have a chance to learn Arabic.

“This makes the world smaller for the kids. It develops their confidence,” Castro said. source – NY Post

        1. Raise the Retirement age to 72 or cut 50% from SSA.
        2. Cut all veterans benefits as: eye glasses, dental, travel, non-service pensions. If you been granted 100% Service Connection, it needs to say that no reexamination of benefits, if not you’ll be call in for another medical and psychological examination to reduce the ratings.
        ( President Bush Sr. Did that to all SSA disability benefiteries, and at that time all drug and alcohol users were drop from disability.) ( In the Reagan era, he release all psycholoigical disability people from State Hospital, put them on the street so they recieved SSI Benefits, which was alot cheaper than State Psychological Hospitals).

        So get ready, for harder times?

    • STL,

      I think the words you seek are:

      Something like that. Please the excuse any mis-spellings, I’m not into arabic, or farsi.

      Keep your head down and your powder dry.

  • Logically this sounds good considering the influence of the language in the world, but then it leaves my brain. Here is a list of States already teaching

  • Teresa: On Huffington Post this morning. Obama new deal.

    Raise age of retirement to 72 years old or cut retirement by 50%.

  • Most of the violent uprisings around the world are Mooslim led. Winston Churchill once remarked: “Most people, sometime in their lives, stumble across the truth. Most jump up, brush themselves off, and hurry on about their business as if nothing had happened.” I hope you won’t do that with this warning about the Islamic caliphate now forming around the world.

    Pray and protest against colonizing Islamists and the evil occupant in the WH financing and promoting them!

    For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth (Isaiah 21:6). I see the ISLAMIC BEAST RISING (Psa 83; Ezek 38-39; Dan 7-12; Rev 11-19) Islam spreads as the PC controlled government continues to ban criticism of it and the people comply with their silence.

    If you aren’t saved, today would be a perfect time to give your heart to the Lord Jesus. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    Daniel 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

    (Psa 83; Ezek 38-39; Dan 7-12; Rev 11-19).

    Calling Islam a “religion of peace” is an oxymoron at best. Islam means submission and Muslim means one who has submitted. It is clearly stated in Islamic writings that all unbelievers- called kafirs- and their civilizations must be annihilated. Mohammed’s success depended on violence to persuade kafirs that he was the prophet of Allah. I believe it is significant to note that the name allah in Hebrew from Brown Driver and Briggs (H423) is aw-law and literally means curse.

    Islam, while cleverly disguised as a “religion”, is rather an Anti-Christ, Anti-Semitic Fascist political Beast intent upon re-establishing the Byzantine caliphate that ruled one-thousand years after the collapse of Western Rome. All who refuse to bow to allah will be slaughtered.

    God’s Word warns about a coming Beast in the last days that seems very clearly to be the Islamic Beast that can be seen now rising. While not exhaustive by any means, I’ve listed a small sampling of passages frighteningly descriptive of Islam:

    Dan 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

    Dan 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

    Rev_13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

    Rev_13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

    • does fit the profile very well……….

  • Obama praised Senate leaders for reaching a compromise, and urged Congress to act quickly, White House spokesman Jay Carney said.

    “As soon as possible is essentially the recommendation we have from here,” he said.

    Republican and Democratic members of the House were to meet separately in the afternoon to hear details of the proposal as well as weigh the next steps.

    House Speaker John Boehner has failed to corral his caucus around any remedy, while House Democrats have solidly supported their leaders.Disarray among House Republicans caused confusion on Tuesday, with Boehner having to pull a proposed agreement from the floor because conservatives found it too weak.

    • Good Afternoon Wily,

      I was recently traveling with some friends, through the Middle East, as a side trip, to acquire a stash of almonds, for our trips home. While there, I was just standing around, as our Linguist, who was a part of our group, began to comment on the foundational structure of arabic/farsi, as compared to other languages.

      As he was talking to me, the Anthropologist, who was part of the tour, ambled over and listened, occasionally, nodding his head, in agreement with what was being said.

      Here’s the jist of what I was learning, from my esteemed traveling companions.

      The earliest forms of arabic/farsi can be traced back to the Congo. These two related languages, come closest to the chatter between monkeys of the area. The only real differences appears to be the different dialects betwixt chimps, and baboons. It, seems as though the more intimidating, and threatening language is farsi, which has come to our world from Persia. The other hostile verbiage, seems to have found it’s way north on the Nile River, where the folks there are still in denial, that not only did their language first appear amongst monkeys, but their very origins are of the same sources, as their language.

      It was the Anthropologist in our group who brought up the matter of Darwin, being partially correct. That, these Bedouin Tribes, which became
      the the modern Middle Eastern Indigenous Inhabitants of the area, had migrated out of the jungle, 1st by hanging onto floating logs, and later, being brought to the northern states to do manual labor, which required little or no, independent thought. You may remember that Tower of Babel? These were the folks who were building it. That’s when The Creator of Everything, sent his Force Recon Troops to check out the Tower. Upon reporting back, HIS Most High Majesty, The Creator of Everything, That was Ever Created, sent HIS Warrior Priests, and Knights down to Confound the Languages, and destroy the tower. Their Primary Order was:


      Secondary Order was:

      Targets of Opportunity are AUTHORIZED

      And that is how monkey chatter became primitive languages, to be spoken by folks who could only understand the simplest of speech. Independent Thought is still a concept, not understood, by the population, and can be visualized by the various fables, they consider to be religious fact.

      On the other hand, The Hebrew Language, was brought to Planet Earth, to be given only to:

      The Chosen Folks, [ISRAEL],

      as The Creator of Everything so declared.

      For out of this People, born of Adam/Eve, [not monkeys], would bring forth the:

      The Savior,
      The King of kings, and Lord of lords.

      Now you know the Truth, and The Truth will set you free.

      Have a Great Day.

      YHWH Bless,

      In Yeshua,

  • Hey I propose Hebrew to be taught to everybody on earth! It’s the only language that you can’t curse God in and would totally piss off Satan and Muslims alike! LOL! But the deal is when God starts His Millennium Kingdom, what do you think will be the spoken word? Just thinking!

    • FRANK I think thats the best idea, I have heard in ages,HEBREW should be taught in every school in america….even though the LORD speaks all of them,its still a good idea…….and screw them DAMMED MUSLIMS,their all headed to hell anyway……..with all their demon friends too…….

  • Washington (CNN) — Senate leaders on Wednesday announced a deal to end the partial government shutdown and avoid a possible U.S. default, and House Speaker John Boehner urged fellow Republicans to support it while a key GOP conservative said he wouldn’t try to block it in the Senate.

    “We fought the good fight; we just didn’t win,” Boehner told a radio station in his home state of Ohio in reference to GOP efforts to dismantle or defund President Barack Obama’s signature health care reforms and extract deficit reduction concessions around the need to fund the government and raise the federagl borrowing limit.

    The Democratic-led Senate first approved a procedural motion, 83 to 16, that allowed a vote on final passage. The Republican-led House was expected to follow later in the evening.

  • Oh, how quickly do some people forget about 9-11 and all the people and children that died at the hands of Muslin terrorist’s who spoke Arabic! Our school systems who adopt this language will make it easy for the anti-Christ and his armies to deceive them to worship and obey him. This is so hard to believe after all the blood shed our troops have endured since 9-11. I feel this is a slap in all their faces after fighting and dying for our country to make kids speak and learn the enemy’s language. The only benefit would be if these kids could be spies in the future for our country against the terrorist Arabs. God help us as our country slides more and more into the abyss.

  • Well the government shut down is over. ……I know nteb had about ten radio shows and fifty blogs just waiting to release on friday. Maybe the next president will let it happen. ..I hope most of these other blogs and websites had a backup plan instead on relying on thier hate for obama and thier desire for him to fell. I guess he just ripped the ” I told you so” right off there tongues.(..not nteb you guys are the credited prophecy site I know)

  • Divine Intervention… or Divine Judgment imminent… and it’s not going to be pretty- since America has forcibly removed the Hand of GOD’s Grace from our nation!

  • As someone who speaks Arabic, i’m rather appalled at some of the bigots in the comments. Arabic is simply a language. It should not be associated with religion or political agenda. Hell, Americans should learn ANY second language, like the majority of the world! It’s great i tell you. Also, i caution you, not all Arabs are Muslims and not all of them are extremists. The media sensationalizes the reality of Arabs way too much.

    • I think you need a reality check. here is some info to start

      He devotes a significant amount of research to Wahhabi Muslims. The members of this particular sect of Islam are often violent and terrorist-friendly. The founder of Wahhabism was Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab (born sometime between 1699 and 1703). He called for a return to true Islam and harshly criticized the mainstream Islam of the 18th century that worshiped at shrines and imputed power to inanimate objects. He lead a war against shirk (polytheism) in order to return to a strict monotheism.

      This brand of Islam is quite militant. “Wahhabism revived the Islamic idea of jihad as military expansionism – a concept that had fallen out of favor with traditional Islam after the early Muslim conquests.”

      One of the more disturbing aspects of his interview with us, was his careful documentation of how the Saudis have aggressively exported this brand of Islam throughout the world, especially to the United States. Sufi Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani told a State Department Open Forum on religious extremism that “the problem with our communities is the extremist ideology. Because they are very active they took over the mosques; and we can say that they took over more than 80% of the mosques that have been established in the Unites States. And there are more than 3,000 mosques in the U.S.”

      One prominent American Muslim leader (W.D. Muhammad) told how the Saudis have gained control of American mosques. “In Saudi Arabia it’s the Wahhabi school of thought” and they say to the mosques that they will only give them money if they “prefer our school of thought.” This leader once took money from them in the past but doesn’t now. He “suspected some strings were attached” and said he couldn’t “accept this kind of relationship.” Unfortunately, he appears to be in the minority among American Muslim leaders and mosques.

      Saudi Arabia’s vast oil revenues have played a major role in this ability to finance terrorist organizations, sometimes through government actions and other times through wealthy individuals in the country. Saudi petrodollars and radical Wahhabism form a dangerous mixture.

      Historian and scholar Bernard Lewis uses this illustration: “Imagine if the Ku Klux Klan or Aryan Nation obtained total control of Texas and had at its disposal all the oil revenues, and used this money to establish a network of well-endowed schools and colleges all over Christendom peddling their brand of Christianity. This was what the Saudis have done with Wahhabism.”

      Ambassador Gold recounts the story of Osama bin Laden when Sudan offered in 1996 to hand him over. “U.S. Intelligence officials became convinced that Saudi Arabia had struck a deal with bin Laden.” Dick Gannon (former director of operations for the State Department Office of Counterterrorism) said, “We’ve got information about who’s backing bin Laden, and in a lot of cases it goes back to the royal family.”

      “U.S. intelligence sources confided that two Saudi princes were channeling funds to bin Laden.” One government official estimated that Saudi payments to Osama bin Laden began in 1995, the year the National Guard headquarters was struck. “There’s no question they did buy protection from bin Laden,” a government source said. “The deal was, they would turn a blind eye to what he was doing elsewhere
