Ex-principal of Arabic school loses in court
- Jews Disenfranchising Muslim and Arab American Citizens
by Joachim Martillo (ThorsProvoni@...)
Suppose circa 1953 that a liberal school board by Baltimore standards
appointed a Jewish superintendent to improve and modernize the school
* that after the 1954 ruling in the Brown vs Board of Education
Supreme Court Case, some Baltimore racists decide that the "Jew
superintendent" does not support white Christian values,
* that the leading segregationists put together a group called
"Stop-the-Talmud Community Coalition," and
* that this "community organization" claims that the
superintendent is "Jewifying" the Baltimore school system because Jews
hate all goyim (non-Jews) equally and have a plan to mix the races to
encourage miscegenation so that a cabal of "smart" Jews will be able
to dominate the "niggerized" United States of America according to the
principles of halakhah (Jewish Law or Jewish Sharia, so to speak)
derived from the Talmud.
Suppose that during a press conference the superintendent defines
"civil disobedience" as a technique according to which dissenters take
a civil stand against injustice even though though they may be arrested.
At this point, "Stop-the-Talmud" goes into high gear with the
connivance of the local, press, radio, and TV to denounce the
superintendent for supporting lawlessness and disrespecting the basic
legal principles of American society.
* that the Baltimore mayor confers with the local city council,
* that together the mayor and the councilors inform the
superintendent that resignation is the only way for him to preserve
any of his school system reforms, and
* that after a meeting in which they browbeat him, he resigns.
Wouldn't the case have been practically the only topic discussed in US
Wouldn't the case have become a cause célèbre covered on the front
pages of the NY Times, LA Times and Washington Post.
Wouldn't columnists have compared the superintendent to Dreyfus?
Wouldn't a writer like John Howard Griffin have penned an essay
entitled "J'accuse aujord'hui!" to condemn any surrender to
segregationist intimidation by remaining silent?
Yet today national media coverage and discussion has been meager from
the start when an organization of Jewish anti-Arab anti-Muslim racists
in New York City created a well-funded organization called
"Stop-the-Madrassa" to undertake systematic defamation both of the
Khalil Gibran International Academy, which is a charter school focused
on Arabic language and culture, and also of the observant Muslim
American principal Debbie Almontaser, who has regularly taken part in
NYC interfaith outreach activities.
When asked about the term intifada, Almontaser explained the meaning
of the Arabic word but failed to swear loyalty to the State of Israel
and to condemn Palestinians for struggling against Zionist oppression,
which is often worse than anything that took place in Apartheid South
Africa or in the Jim Crow South according to both South African
Archbishop Desmond Tutu and also former US President Jimmy Carter.
(Supporting Zionism and the State of Israel is not a requirement for
US citizens no matter how much Israel-firsters attempt to operate as
if it is.)
Jewish-dominated media companies like the NY Sun, Post, and Daily News
then colluded with the "Stop-the-Madrassa" campaign to incite
hysteria. Eventually, Jewish NYC mayor Bloomberg and Jewish Chancellor
of NYC Schools Klein gave the principal the option of resigning for
the sake of her school. In response to the intense pressure, to which
she have been subjected, she complied.
When supporters, including many Jews, who took part in Interfaith
activities, encouraged her to press a lawsuit to reclaim her job, the
Jewish judge Sidney Stein "ruled that Almontaser's free-speech rights
could not have been violated since she was speaking as a school
employee - not a private citizen - when she gave the interview."
Let's ignore the judge's decision that Almontaser could be fired
simply for defining or translating a word. Isn't there something just
a wee bit wrong with this picture?
Isn't the Almontaser case just another case of a conspiracy by Jewish
racists to deny Muslim and Arab Americans their rights as Americans to
free expression, to work and to take part fully in American society
An network of Jewish groups and individuals are working throughout the
country to disenfranchise Arab and Muslim Americans from Boston (the
Roxbury Mosque Conflict) to LA (the LA Eight), in Texas (the HLF
shutdown and trial), and in Florida (the persecution of Sami el-Arian)
as well as to drive them both from politics (attacks on Ken Ellison
for his practice of Islam) and also from academia (efforts to prevent
Arab and Muslim American scholars like Rashid Khalidi, Hamid Dabashi,
Joseph Massad, Nadia Abu el Haj, and Wadie Said from having a voice at
The treatment of Almontaser is a violation of US federal criminal code
Title 18 Section 241 "Conspiracy against rights (18 USC 241).
Patriotic Jewish and non-Jewish Americans, who support the
Constitution and whose primary national and political loyalties lie
with the USA and not with some foreign country, must take a stand
against Jewish and Zionist extremists that for the sake of the State
of Israel or Jewish tribalism are trying to steal the country from us.
Otherwise, we will wake up to find that we are no longer living in a
democratic America based on US Constitutional principles.
Ex-principal of Arabic Khalil Gibran school loses round in court

A federal judge Wednesday shot down a last-minute attempt by the
former principal of a Brooklyn Arabic-language school to keep the city
from selecting her successor.
Debbie Almontaser, the short-lived head of the new Khalil Gibran
International Academy, wanted the judge to delay the selection and
order someone other than Schools Chancellor Joel Klein to oversee the
Almontaser, who was forced to resign after a published report tried to
link her to a militant Islamic group, re-applied for the job in
October, but was not among the four finalists.
In August, a story in the New York Post suggested Almontaser sided
with a Muslim girls' group distributing T-shirts that read "Intifada NYC."
In tearful testimony this week, Almontaser said she was trying to make
a teaching point about the meaning of intifadeh when she explained to
the reporter that its root translation was "shaking off oppression."
"She didn't talk about T-shirts," said Almontaser's lawyer, Alan Levine.
"She was asked the definition of intifadeh."
Almontaser's lawyers will ask a federal appeals court to overturn
Judge Sidney Stein's decision.
The city said it will not resume the selection process until at least
tomorrow, to give the appeals court time to hear the matter.
Stein ruled that Almontaser's free-speech rights could not have been
violated since she was speaking as a school employee - not a private
citizen - when she gave the interview.
He also said she should have realized that her comments would be
widely reported because there was a great deal of media interest in
the school controversy.
