Our Community Coalition

STOP THE MADRASSA is a grass roots organization, a coalition of citizens’ groups and individuals who found each other through correspondence and activism. When the Khalil Gibran Academy was first announced there was an intense out-cry from the public that resulted in the removal of the KGIA from the first NY Public School that was intended to house it.

At this time the media coverage seemed to decrease even though it was apparent the school had not gone away it was simply moving to a different location. Those of us who have stayed in the fight such as The United American Committee and members of NY-ICE and the Gathering of Eagles continued to protest the school wherever possible. For some that meant attending PTA meetings and maintaining constant letter writing to the media and the authorities behind this school. We were also supported in this fight by many well-known blogs such as KesherTalk , Jillosophy and AtlasShrugs amongst many others.

Our coalition continued to grow. While at a CAIR Protest we met and joined forces with a fellow activist who had taken this fight to the media, the NYSun in particular ; she then connected us to another fellow activist who had taken on an unresponsive City Hall and had actually received a response from the Department of Education that had been inundated with letters -of-protest from a concerned public. We were now ready to make Stop The Madrassa the center of our fight; a workplace for us to co-ordinate and disseminate the research we are gathering regarding KGIA .

StopThe Madrassa welcomes your input. Please join us in this fight with any suggestions you may have as well as researched articles and links as we continue this investigation into the Khalil Gibran Academy.

    The very concept of the school, to create “global citizens” is misguided nonsense at best. This is an indoctrination center to keep the Islamic mentality alive and well in America. They can learn to be Americans or they can go back to the oppressive Islamic Theocracy they came from. Go get them.

    They want to teach Arab Culture? A scientific and reasoned analysis of Arab Culture and Civilization? Thats exactly the kind of “Arabic School” we should have. Why don’t we see if they will allow Daniel Pipes, or Robert Spencer, or some of your pals at “Atlas Shrugged” to teach some classes there.

    It is very refreshing to find this website and the concern that I find about the spread of Islam across AMERICA! In San Diego, the ‘public’ school district has approved time during the school day for muslim prayer. This is just the beginning and we need to work together to stop this spread all across this great land of ours. Please contact me or let me know who I can contact in order to get more involved with these movements to stop Islam in America.

  3. Against Madrassa School Says:

    STOP THE SCHOOL…across America our school funding is being cut and cut and now you want legal American citizens to pay for Muslim schools and foot baths for prayers. Stop pandering to foreigners …this is America … if they want a Muslim school they can go back to their own country… and let their people pay for it. This is unconstitutional and breaking our laws to use taxpayer money for this

    How can we take action, both New Yorkers and Non-New Yorkers like myself?

  5. Ogas Says:

    “Madrassa ” is an arabic word that means what?

  6. Michelle Says:

    Using the taxpayer’s money to fund this school is outrageous! Anyone with any degree of common sense is able to see that this so called “school” is just another front to promote Islam. If anyone thinks that they will teach people about the Arab culture and not introduce Islam somewhere along the line then they’re delusional. The last thing we need is to provide a platform that could be used to spread radical Islam. I don’t know who gave this thing the go, but what were they thinking? This school is a BAD idea and should NOT be allowed to operate especially at the taxpayers expense.

  7. milford421 Says:

    How tolerant we are towards the intolerant. This school will be a religious school. Somali students in California are attending segregated classrooms due to religious sensitivities, and prayer rooms are set aside…

    I would like to know who is on the advisory board and what can the NY taxpayers do to stop this.

  8. Craig Says:

    I am so thankful to find like minded Americans, I was in shock and angry to learn of a pubic school for Islam. Since when do we have religiously themed public schools at the taxpayers expense, this is an outrage? Enough is enough, Americans are not inheritting the America we were promised, in fact we are losing our basic traditions little by little, it is time to act and I am glad to see it beginning here!

    ONE school IN ONE state ?
    EVERY public school in EVERY state is a madrassa already. Islamist clerics with terrorist ties have lead EVERY member of Congress in prayer …to Allah…and it was our tax dollars that put muslim prayer rooms in the basement of the Whitehouse …and in our airports…hospitals…colleges. There are mosques in every town and city in America. Our prison systems are dominated by muslim clerics. Our foster care system of Social Services has likewise been successfully targeted .. Even the military must pay homage to the Koran and dietary restrictions of Islam…When putting a copy of a Koran in a toilet is a criminal offense, punishable by law…. what makes the use of tax dollars in a public school system an unusual case? Is it the complicit politicians…the Islamist educators, Islamist curriculum?…Is it religious prayer in public schools by the supremem court? The footbaths…holiday meals…prayer mats? Perhaps its the Wahabbi and Shiitte “contributions” to compaigns, and libraries? Is it the literature ..the books…teacher’s salaries? Our own tax dollars have been used to pay for the rewriting of our own textbooks. World History, including our own-preschool through university…ALL have been revised by Islamist scholars who were paid with our tax dollars. Islamist educators fill every nook and cranny of EVERY educational institution in EVERY state of America. EVERY department of American government has been infiltrated. And EVERY official has bowed to the agenda of Islam. EVERY media outlet has been successfully intimidated. ..EVERY law has been used to bind us hand and foot and mouth. EVERY Court …EVERY local, state, and federal law enforcement body has been enjoined against ANY and ALL American citizens who would protest the conquest of this country. Our protest is “hate speech”.One school in one state?? ….Where do we go from here?

  10. MD Says:

    I would like to correct the spelling errors above.
    I meant to ask ..are the objections religious prayer in public schools which was once ruled against by the Supreme Court. .. or Wahabbi and Shiite contributions to campaigns.

  11. american Says:

    MD is right. There is a lot more infiltration then we realize. The goal of Islam is to convert or kill all non-muslims. The enemy is alive and well right here. They plan to overtake the US by 2050. We might all be dead, but what about our Children? What are we going to do to protect their future and rights? Where is the PATRIOTISM?? What are we as Americans going to do about it? Any suggestions?

  12. Sharon Wright Says:

    I feel this school is a double insult to New Yorkers since 911. I was watching the TV from California for days after the Trade buildings were hit and all of us here in California were very upset. What some of us noticed was the demonstrations after 911 here and elsewhere that were conducted by Americans (suppossedly) supporting the NY disaster. Strange that our press had very little coverage on these events. Now we see a school for Islam opening up where they won’t let anyone see their books plus we are paying for this education. And you have to wonder about the parents who are sending their children to this institution. Did they take their heads off and put in on the shelf? Geez…
    ……

    The mosques and the Islamic private schools have been paid for by the Saudis. Is there any other country that has been able to infiltrate the educational system as the Saudis have? Not to the best of my knowledge. We are accommodating our enemies who openly state their goals to takeover the US.
    Their is a rot in our Nation’s soul, and it is being able to eat away at the DNA of the essence of our soul unfettered . Something must be done, and I suggest, every single candidate on every level for every office, including the school and library boards be asked there opinion about the
    preferences and exceptions being made for the Muslims.
    Then, post each candidates answers. There is one Saudi after another who has managed to obtain positions close to ,or in power, including the White House, the State Department, the NSC, as described on the White House website in regards to the Iftar dinner at the end of Ramadan , the Congress, of course, former officeholders who insist upon weighing in on certain issues,
    Hillary’s very personal assistant , or travel scheduler, recently written about in the NYT, I believe, Fred Thompson’s campaign manager, Spencer Abraham.
    If each of us ignores what is transpiring where we live, we will have no one to blame but ourselves.Thus, this group
    deserves all of the help we can give.
    If necessary, and Klein won’t move on this, I suggest, the Catholics , the Jewish Community, the Methodists, Buddhists, Hindu, and every other religious group apply for a school such as this Muslim one. Insist on the City paying for it and that it provides at least an educational institution comparable to the KGIA.

In the meantime, where ever there is an election for school board and library boards and for City Council, either run for the position, or have a meeting in which the Islamic anti-American strategies and tactics are identified and explained. If possible, if you know an enlightened ,truly secular Muslim it would be helpful for he/she to accompany your efforts. Or print out information
    such as on Atlas, or Frontpagemag, of JihadWatch, Daniel Pipes,Littlegreenfootballs.com, Arab News online, Honestreporting.com,MEMRI.org,, etc.
    Please, also, understand the Arab community discovered the importance of the public library system and school libraries, and are stocking them with their propaganda for free. Honestreporting.com,CAMERA.org, and Standwithus.com have Library Projects and suggested bibliographies for you to do the same. Remember, while the anti-Semitism and anti- Israel propaganda does make the media, the Christian populations that are being attacked worldwide RARELY are reported, and they are dying, being threatened, expelled, attacked, forced to convert, frequently. This is being done in Gaza and has been going on in the West Bank areas the Palestinians control.
    All of our histories and, of course, our American History , are being revised , dismissed, and usurped by the Muslims, especially of the Saudi Wahabist sect. They are writing and distributing their particular curriculum even in public schools throughout the country. Each of us can check our own school district and be a first line of defence. This is our country . These are our histories, and they must NOT be obscured, diminished and distorted. THAT is up to us!
