    Teacher asks 13-year-old Muslim student if she has a bomb
    ATLANTA -- The father of a Muslim middle school student says a teacher asked his daughter if she was carrying a bomb in her backpack

    The school's principal has apologized for the incident, according to a spokeswoman.

    Abdirizak Aden said the teacher at Shiloh Middle School in Georgia stopped his 13-year-old daughter, who wears a hijab, and asked if she had a bomb.

    Aden told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that his daughter was extremely upset by the comment and he went to the school to see what had happened.

    "I was upset," said Aden, who works as a truck driver and grocery store owner. "I was going to take my daughter out (of that school)."

    "We are from Africa, we are Muslims, we live in America," he said. "I didn't teach my children to hate people or to think they are better than other people."

    Sloan Roach, a Gwinnett County Public Schools spokeswoman, told the newspaper that the school's principal has apologized to the family.

    "The remark was not appropriate, but based on their conversation and investigation," school officials don't believe it was made with "ill intent," Roach said.

    She said the comment came as the teacher was urging students to put away their backpacks.

    The incident "shows the level of Islamophobia impacting people's relationships with one another," Yusof Burke, board president of the Georgia Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told the newspaper.

    Is that story more of the daily propaganda that muslims are the real victims?

    That was ignorant of the teacher. I work with several Muslims, none of which is planning a jihad any time soon.

    Because it will be classified as workplace violence instead.

    If only .1% of Muslims in America were planning Jihad, that would be 1,710. At 14 deaths per 2 Muslim team, that's 12,000 dead Americans.

    Luckily for us, most are too stupid to get away with it. Like Trump says... the mind... the mind is weak with these people. We're talking about people who believe in a flying horse - and that the moon broke in half at some point. They're not a bright people

    so to us it's like "Pick up a gun and shoot a place up" and it sounds so simple but for these people that really is a really confusing operation

    I have to admit my nurse manager was rooting for some protesters that were looting and setting fires. But that could have been a black thing rather a Muslim thing. I told him it's wrong to fight violence with violence but I'm not sure he really agreed with me
