Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic Causes Huge Controversy
A school’s decision to recite the Pledge of Alliance in Arabic has incited a firestorm of controversy.
Pine Bush High School, in Pine Bush, NY, decided to let a student recite the pledge in Arabic as part of National Language Week, which sharply divided people on whether that was acceptable or not.
While it’s become a divisive issue, student body president Andrew Zink appeared on WPDH’s Boris & Robyn Show to explain just what happened and how he defines what it means to be an American:
What defines America and what defines a person as an American is not the language they speak, but the beliefs they have.
So, what do you think? Is it okay to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in a foreign language or should it only be done in English?
