SHOW AND TELL BECOMES HELL FOR MUSLIM STUDENT

Remember the days of ‘Show and Tell’ from your early school years? Bet you never saw anything like this …

'Show and Tell' is supposed to be fun ... not hell

‘Show and Tell’ is supposed to be fun … not hell

Fearmongering isn’t Christian. Apologize for Ahmed’s arrest.

When a Muslim 9th grader brought his homemade clock, a circuit board wired to a digital display, to school in Irving, Texas, he was led out in handcuffs for creating a “hoax bomb.” Ahmed Mohamed now says he’ll never bring one of his inventions to school again.

This story has gone viral over the last 24 hours, and people are pointing fingers at Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne — a right-wing extremist who gives speeches at churches about how Muslims are “infiltrating” her suburban Texas community.

Mayor Van Duyne has misused Christianity to create a climate of fear and Islamophobia, and now that climate has resulted in the arrest of a 14-year-old boy for the crime of using his God-given gifts of curiosity and inventiveness.

The mayor needs to hear that fellow Christians are ashamed of her Islamophobia. And both Ahmed and everyone who stands with him needs to see how many Christians will stand up when our faith is twisted to promote intolerance.

    now days in order to invent something that won’t get you into trouble, you have to invent a weapon that the govt. will pay attention to. Then they will knock at your door, offering you a college education and a check and who knows what else, hoping you will sell them the patent, and invent more killing devices for them.

    The teacher and principal have flunked the basic science segment of their certification.

    THIS IS A SMART ASSED KID SEEKING HIS 15 MINUTES OF FAME.
    THE ADULTS WHO PUT HIM UP TO THIS PRANK
    ARE MISSING SOMETHING IN THE BRAIN PROPELLING THIS STUPID BOY INTO POTENTIAL DANGER.
    THIS DELIBERATE PRANK DOES NOT HELP THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE ONE IOTA
    AND IT MAKES ME WONDER IF THEY WERE NOT HIRED AND PAID TO DO THIS STUPID THING BY THE ISRAELIS
    TO SHOW THE WORLD JUST HOW DANGEROUS MUSLIMS ARE
    AND EVEN IN CHILDHOOD

    When he started spewing boilerplate legalese like “the school is a HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT” I lost interest. The government says “see something, say something” then brands you a BIGOTED RACIST for that crude, bulky, mishmash of wiring. NEW code “see NOTHING, say NOTHING”
