British children threaten patriotic classmate

Could you read that subject title without asking "were these children Muslim"? Of course they were Muslim, at least five of them were. The article doesn't explain why the "white girl" who was not Muslim was involved, other than that she was in "the gang."

Who is this kid who was threatened? " A 13-year-old boy who penned an online Remembrance Day tribute to Britain’s fallen soldiers was subjected to a vicious hate campaign by fellow pupils.

"A gang of 12-year-old pupils made up of five Muslim boys and one non-Muslim girl made death threats to Darius Gill involving knives and knuckle-dusters because of his support for British troops.

"One member of the gang also posted a picture of himself holding a rifle and threatened to hijack a plane.

" The campaign was backed by more pupils belonging to a self-styled ‘Muslim Defence League’ celebrating British deaths in Afghanistan.

"The abuse was so serious that police are now investigating.

"On November 11, Darius – whose father is Asian – wrote on Facebook: ‘RIP to all the lads who never made it home.’

"He also posted two pictures showing British troops on Armistice Day.

"He was then branded ‘racist’ and two of the accused pupils began a flurry of online messages to each other setting out what they were going to do to him.

" One wrote to Darius on Facebook criticising him for failing to acknowledge the dead ­Muslim soldiers in the Middle East.

"Darius explained that Remembrance Day honoured British troops and pointed out that he was paying tribute to his great-great uncle, who died aged only 17 on the first day of the Battle of the Somme in 1916.

"The students attend the 1,250-pupil Sidney Stringer Academy in Coventry. Muslim pupils make up 65 per cent of the school, which caters for children aged 11-18.

"The main six pupils, none of whom can be named for legal reasons, have now been suspended and may be expelled over their chilling threats.

"One of the online messages – which were littered with spelling mistakes – read: ‘Fight on Monday gonna be heavy knuckle dusters and knifes hopefully I don’t die.’

" Another pupil added: ‘ill bang [attack] him ma slef [myself] am a terrorist.’

" One pupil’s Facebook profile is full of chilling references to Islamic fundamentalism and shows a ­picture of him posing with an AK47 rifle.

"He also penned a terrifying poem about hijacking a plane.

"On November 12, he wrote: ‘You better watch what the **** flies outta ya mouth. Or I’ma hijack a plane and fly it into your house.

"‘Burn your apartment with your family tied to the couch. And slit your throat, so when you scream, only blood comes out.’"

COMMENT: Are the police or is the school going to put a cap on Islam? Are you kidding? Of course not. The problem isn't with these Muslim children. The article says that what these kids have been doing and saying "is appalling and extremely upsetting to Darius" but whether they were equally appalling and upsetting to the school, the article doesn't say.

So if the problem isn't these Muslim Children, their threats or their actions, what is the cause of the problem? . . . [drum roll to give the clowns enough time to appear] Facebook. "Sidney Stringer Academy’s principal, Wendy Thomas, said Facebook was an increasing concern for schools. She said the children have been told to remove the comments from the site. . . ‘Facebook is a big concern for schools and we urge all parents to monitor what their children say on the site. As soon as the school was notified about the comments on Monday we interviewed the pupils."

You loopy Brits are a kick in the pants, aren't you? We wouldn't do anything that dumb in the U.S. -- at least not for a couple of more years.
