Dr. Debbie Almontaser is the Founding/Former Principal of Khalil Gibran Academy.  Her goal is to bridge cultures and break down barriers of misunderstanding..

She is a prominent leader and speaker in her field.  Since September 11, she and her family have opened their home to people from other Brooklyn communities to have a social exchange that lends itself to developing an understanding of
Arabs and Muslims in New York City. Ms. Almontaser has also organized numerous interfaith and cultural events to develop cross-cultural understanding across the city. This work has led to travel to share her peace building work nationally and internationally in countries such as:
Canada, Russia, Jamaica, Panama, Costa Rica, Denmark, Netherlands, Qatar, Dubai, Abu Dhabi,and Kazakhstan.

Jon tried to attack our guest on a historical premise that Islam is violent.  I, the main host, firmly disagreed.  Dr. Almontaser was an awesome guest who vetted him out.
