Daniel Pipes' racist campaign marks a victory

Daniel Pipes' fascist-style campaign against an Arabic-language school in Brooklyn and its principal is succeeding:

The Evening Bulletin - Stop The NYC Madrassa:
When Dhabah ("Debbie") Almontaser resigned on Aug. 10 as principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy, her action culminated a remarkable grass-roots campaign in which concerned citizens successfully criticized the New York City establishment. But the fight continues. The next step is to get the academy itself canceled.
Remember, his main objection is that "the more basic problems implicit in an Arabic-language school: the tendency to Islamist and Arabist content and proselytizing."

Perhaps someone can start a campaign against the Lycée Français in New York, where French-language education will have a tendency to pro-France content and will encourage cheese-eating and surrender-monkeying.
