It is sad that the other student was bullied and then bullied some more as she was attacked for not being American enough. What frightens me even more is Heather's alleged comments about Iraqis being the enemy and her signing up for the Army next year. That is NOT cool. I think someone needs to let her know that racism is NOT an American Value, or a family Value NOT even a military value.
She shouldn't be allowed to enlist she sounds like a confused individual who needs help. Why do we raise our children like this? How are we ever going to live in peace if we praise our children for lying and bullying and victimize the victim further? May Allah swt give her and her whole family hidaya. ameen. The Muslim sister walked away from the incident alhamdulillah and is slowly being cleared of all the lies spewed at her. May Allah swt bless her with what is best in this life and in the hereafter. ameen.
After the incident, Lawrence was asked by a teacher why she confronted the girl.
"She began to rant that she was enlisting and was going to Iraq and that basically because the girl looks Middle Eastern, that makes her an enemy because all Iraqis are Middle Eastern," according to the referral signed by assistant principal Stephen Crognale.
Lawrence, who says she plans to enlist in the Army, denied Friday she said that or feels that way. She told the St. Petersburg Times that telling the student to take off her hijab was a little "over the edge" and that she would consider apologizing.
