Quote# 87583[Arabic is being taught as an optional course in a NYC school.]
Is the ACLU paying attention? To study Arabic is to study Islam. I don’t particularly care if one studies Arabic, but this level of religious association would be enough to get a Christian study thrown out.
You can’t speak conversational Arabic without invoking the name Allah in every other sentence.
“Some Muslims present a monogenesis of languages and claim that the Arabic language was the language revealed by God for the benefit of mankind and the original language as a prototype symbolic system of communication, based upon its system of triconsonantal roots, spoken by man from which all other languages were derived, having first been corrupted.”
