New York state high school apologises for reading out Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic

A school in New York state has issued an apology for reading out the US Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic.

District residents complained about the practice of reciting the 31-word pledge, which promises loyalty to the American flag, as well as the republic and its values, in the foreign tongue.

District Superintendent Joan Carbone told the Times Herald-Record of Middletown that she had received complaints from residents who lost relatives in the Afghanistan War and from Jewish parents.

The Arabic reading of the pledge has “divided the school in half,” she told the newspaper.

    WTF? Is this school implementing Imam President HUSSEIN Obama’s direct orders or not?

    I’m torn on this one. On the one hand all the muslim students will better understand what it means to be american and it MAY encourage some of them to turn away from islam and jihad. On the other hand it’s the US and it should be in english and giving in to read it in arabic is insulting.

    • Yes it was.

      I’m not sure pledging “One nation under Allah” is going to help anyone turn away from jihad.

        I hadn’t thought about how they likely changed God to allah, that would really change the meaning of the pledge.

          The Judaeo-Christian God is not allah, in fact judging by the actions of his followers through the mad prophet Mohamed seem to indicate a figure from the darker side

          • Rosenmops

            Most certainly.

          I think this is why so many students got upset. When students heard the word “Allah” some of them started booing. It was read over the PA system.

          Since jihadist always scream “allah snack bar” when they kill people, most of us have a less than favorable impression of Allah.

    Brainwashing children. It’s more cultural Marxism that aims to create the impression that being European is wrong. It’s introducing a not-so-subtle flavor of cultural genocide by the cultural Marxists. They must smirk between themselves when they get away with things like this.
    Ah, how quaintly the sun glitters on the knives and sabres of the noble savages!

  • Hard Little Machine

    That’s not the half of it, they changed the wording to “One nation under Allah”
