High School Teacher on Leave About Teasing a Muslim Student About Bin Laden's Death

Clear Brook High SchoolA Texas high school teacher is on administrative leave after being accused of asking a Muslim student whether she was grieving over the death of Osama bin Laden.  The alleged incident happened Monday at Clear Brook High School in Friendswood, Texas. Neither the teacher nor the student have been identified.

Some students say that the incident has been blown out of proportion but others say that the student was humiliated to the point of tears.

Mustafaa Carroll, the executive director of the Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said, "It is troubling because it says there are people who actually believe that Muslims are grieving over the death of someone that's caused so much misery to others."

    Americans just never miss a chance to be disgusting, do we?

    The teacher alleged behaviour may not be admirable, but it's more disgusting if Muslims actually are mouring the death of this vicious and pointless killer.

    You know, I really don't care if one does not like Islam. I don't like it. However the doesn't give the person the right to say such things. To say that all Muslims are mourning Osama's death is to say all Xian mourned Fawells. It's simply not true. It doesn't mean that they are celebrating or did celebrate either. If you are curious how the person feels about something, ask an honest question, not a fictitious one, like "What are you thoughts on this?" or "How you feeling about this?" Just like you would anyone else. One doesn't have to like the other's views to inquire honestly about another thoughts and feelings.

    The student should have said, "No. Are you still in mourning for Hitler?"
