School That Forced Students To Write "There Is No God But Allah" to Shut Down Tomorrow, Citing "Tone" of Reaction to Their Strange Curriculum--
Shutting Down The Whole District

They specifically say there is "no specific threat" to the school or students.

But they're closing the school anyway.

Actually, they're shutting down the whole district.

Which I take as an attempt to shift attention from their bad behavior to fantasized bad behavior on the part of their critics.

Like so:

Us: You shouldn't make kids write "Allah is god," the same as I assume you would never make them write "Jesus is Lord."

Them: But this was in Arabic. They didn't know what they were writing.

Us: They found out pretty quick. Would you make Muslim kids write "Jesus is Lord"--

Them: But we didn't tell them what they were writing!

Us: You didn't let me finish: Would you make Muslim kids write "Jesus is Lord" in Latin? "Dominum Iesum?" How's that hit you? Does that touch you someplace special?

Them: ...

Us: Or how about in Ancient Greek? Or in Aramaic? Or even -- God forbid -- Hebrew?

Them: That's different.

Us: In what way?

Them: ...

Us: The real difference is that you feel that you may and should pummel Christian kids into being "open minded" about faiths not their own, but you'd be very protective of Muslim kids' religions autonomy wouldn't you?

Them: ---

Us: Are you going to answer?

Them: We're shutting down the school. The Tone of this discussion just proves how important it is to be open to learning about Islam.

Us: This sure seems like an attempt to claim victim status when you're the one crossing lines.

Them: Help! Help! I'm being microaggressed!
