'Anti-Islamic' female US teacher forced to apologise to her Saudi students for offending Islam.



'Anti-Islamic' female US teacher forced to apologise to her Saudi students for offending Islam.(E24/7).A female university teacher in the United States had to apologise to her Saudi students for offending Islam after they protested her behaviour to the management, Saudi newspapers reported on Tuesday.
The students went straight to the teacher’s direct manager and complained that she had placed anti-Islamic pictures with abusive remarks in their books. They threatened that in case no action is taken, they would go straight to the chairman of the University of Central Arkansas in the southern state of America.
“We went into the office of the manager of the institute where we study and submitted a protest…we told her that if she does not take action against the teacher, we will go to the head of the university,” Saudi student Ahmed bin Daheem Al Hajour said, quoted by the Saudi Ajel newspaper.
The manager did take action as she promised and forced that teacher to apologise to us by sending messages to each of us on our Facebook pages…. she even removed her son’s picture from her Facebook page and replaced it with the flag of Saudi Arabia.”
Ajel published what it said was a copy of the US teacher’s message to the students apologising to them and saying it was an intentional mistake.
“I just want to apologize to you if you saw something here the other day that was offensive to Islam…I liked the picture because I liked the caption-- I didn’t even look at the picture I was liking…it was a stupid mistake and I didn’t even realise until a student complained to Amy (manager) and she talked to me,” the teacher said in her message.
I want you to know I care deeply about my Saudi students…last term for example, I rearranged my class schedule so that the men could attend mosque and not have to miss class…..I have always tried to be sensible and respectful, so I feel terrible that I made such a stupid and thoughtless mistake… I would never intentionally do something to be offensive.”
Saudi readers reacting to the incident poured praise on the students while an angry reader who was not identified said :”As if the twin-towers disaster was not enough for them (Americans),” in a reference to the 2001 September terror attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York.Read the full story here.

Update: In the comment section of this story Mrs Cicily Tubb - Warbington left the following Comment:

Hi -I am Cicily Tubb-Warbington. I find it interesting that NO ONE has contacted me to find out the truth about what happened. I can assure you, the story from the Emirates site was wildly inaccurate. This is a non-story. Nothing controversial happened, and I was not made to apologize for anything. Instead of quoting papers who are clearly propaganda, next time, why don't you ask the people involved?


Update 2: Apparantly BlazingCatFur has another version of the facts here.

Hmmm.....Meanwhile... I'm still left wondering why she would replace her son's picture for the Saudi flag.

  1. She replaced her son's picture with the flag of Saudi??? Doesn't she know what the sword on that flag represents?

    1. Hi Mr AOW. Yes that's just the part that stunned me the most, replacing the image of your flesh and blood.

    1. Hi.
      Thank you for your reply on this 'story'.
      Cicily Tubb -Warbington feel free to leave your side of the story here, i will publish your side of the story as well.

  3. Actually no -there is only one set of FACTS. The rest is opinion or fantasy. I'm shocked that you would blindly accept the Saudi version without checking to verify anything. If you're interested in TRUTH, you can contact my university, UCA, or you can check out Blazing Cat Fur. He got an inside source somehow, and although his story doesn't explain everything, it's definitely more accurate than the crap you posted.

    1. Hi Cicily Tubb -Warbington .
      If you consider the story 'crap' and being the 'interested party' i would advise you to contact Emirates 24/7 and ask them for an apology or/and a correction of the article.

  4. Ha -I love that! You think the Emirates or Saudi papers would print a retraction? No -they would make my comments and request into another reason I should be stoned. Thanks -but no. I will contact American blogs, such as these, because I think you guys are more interested in the truth. The Emirates site has clearly demonstrated they are only interested in anti-American propaganda.

  5. So, the story was made up? I wonder how many other ant-American stories like this are floating around in Arab papers and making Muslims certain that Islam is conquering America?

  6. It wasn't entirely made up -they did get my name right and the name of the uni right. But the rest was pretty much all wrong. And I would guess there's an awful lot of this kind of deceit out there. How else can they keep the radicals mad enough at us to want to kill us?
