The Daily Mail’s headline is part of the problem: “Five Muslim boys and white girl.” “Muslim” is not a race, and Darius Gill was not threatened because of race. He was threatened by children who are being raised in a radically intolerant, supremacist belief system that inculcates hatred of and contempt for people of other belief-systems. They do, however, call Darius “racist” for posting a tribute to British soldiers, because they have already learned from their elders that this is an effective tactic they can use to claim victim status — even in the midst of issuing murderous threats.
Note also that the principal says that Facebook is the problem. As Pamela Geller notes, “So Facebook is the problem? The method of delivery is the problem, but not the nature of the death threat. Delusional.” If they wrote the threats on paper, I guess they’d be banning spiral notebooks from the school.
“Five Muslim boys and white girl, all 12, excluded over Facebook death threats to classmate who supported British troops,” by Claire Ellicott in the Daily Mail, November 17 (thanks to John):
As the nation paused on Remembrance Day to honour those who had sacrificed their lives for their country, one schoolboy felt particularly proud.
Moved by their bravery, Darius Gill penned a patriotic and heartfelt tribute to the soldiers who had lost their lives at war.
But unknown to the 13-year-old schoolboy, some of his peers took exception to his comments.
A gang of 12-year-old pupils made up of five Muslim boys and one white girl, began plotting a vicious attack on Darius – whose father is Asian – for supporting British troops.
The pupils, none of whom can be named for legal reasons, have now been suspended from a school in Coventry and may be expelled after posting their chilling threats online.
One message – littered with spelling mistakes – said: ‘Fight on Monday gonna be heavy knuckle dusters nd knifes hopefully I don’t die.’
Another pupil added: ‘ill bang him ma slef am a terrorist.’
One member of the gang also posted a picture of himself holding a rifle and threatened to hijack a plane.
Other pupils – who have set up a Muslim Defence League which celebrates British deaths in Afghanistan – also added comments condemning Darius….
Even yesterday, one of the yobs, who can’t be named because of their age, bragged about being quizzed by police and continued his threats to attack Darius.
He posted: ‘IM IN TROUBLE WIV DE POLICE CUZ OF SUSSPICIAN OF THREAT TO DARIUS OVER FB U HAVE A RITE TO REMAIN SILENCE!!! (JOKES) BUT IM IN TROUBLLE WIV DE POLICE IM BANGGIN DARIUS THURSDAY NO1 JUMP IN 1 v 1.’
The abuse and threats came after Darius posted two pictures showing British troops on Armistice Day on facebook.
On November 11, he wrote: ‘RIP TO ALL THE LADS WHO NEVER MADE IT HOME.’
He was then branded ‘racist’ and two of the accused pupils began a flurry of MSN messages to each other setting out what they were going to do to Darius.
One wrote to Darius on facebook saying ‘r u being racist?’ and criticised him for failing to acknowledge the dead soldiers in the Middle East….
The unnamed 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.’
Principal Wendy Thomas said facebook was an increasing concern for schools.
She said: ‘Darius is the victim of bullying. All the students involved have told me they did not mean what they said but they will learn a hard lesson from this.
‘Facebook is a big concern for schools and we urge all parents to monitor what their children say on the site….
Facebook ain’t your problem, Wendy.
