As Michelle noted on last night’s O’Reilly Factor, Debbie Almontaser backtracked on her “intifada isn’t a violent word” statement. If you haven’t watched last night’s Factor highlight reel, it ends with the segment on the Khalil Gibran school and Almontaser’s connections to various radical groups. JammieWearingFool has more on the story today, as the NY Post and Sun weigh in (but no peep from the alleged “paper of record” yet that I’m aware of).

This is what “intifada” means. Everyone, including Principal Almontaser, knows that. We’re about three weeks out from the start of school in NYC. NYC schools chancellor Joel Klein has a choice to make.
