Equal Opportunity Stupidity and Duplicity...

City education officials discriminated against an Arabic-language school principal when they canned her for making comments to The Post defending students who wore shirts with the words "Intifada NYC," according to a ruling by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

In the decision, released by her supporters yesterday, the EEOC says the Education Department "succumbed to the very bias that creation of the school was intended to dispel."

Debbie Almontaser, who headed up the Khalil Gibran International Academy in Brooklyn, told The Post in 2007 that "intifada" on the shirts meant simply "shaking off oppression" and was not an endorsement of the Palestinian uprising against Israel.

Therefore, no one would be upset if I sported a T-shirt that stated:

"Fight Pedophelia...don't acknowledge Mohammad."
Right? Same premise...right...Bueller...Bueller? Or maybe I'll just draw a cartoon of Mohammad throwing stones at a rape victim.
