August 10, 2007 — The principal of the city’s controversial, new Arabic academy resigned this morning in the wake of her comments that condoned “Intifada NYC” T-shirts.

Debbie Almontaser’s resignation comes just days after The NY Post reported that the inflammatory shirts were being sold by an Arab activist group headquartered in the same storefront as a Yemeni-American association that Almontaser heads.

Instead of condemning the shirts, Almontaser attempted to justify them, provoking a huge outcry from residents and elected officials who said she would not be appropriate to head the Khalil Gibran International Academy, which will focus on Arabic culture, history and language.
