    I'm not attempting to be racist, but at which point do you think:

    Yeah, i'm living here in America, but maybe it's time to relocate....
    Hey, the middle east sounds kinda cool!

    It kinda did, though.

    The kid got to go to the White House, NASA headquarters, MIT...
    Microsoft sent him a goodie bag of a bunch of cool tech stuff & computers...
    Now, he's getting free college tuition.

    It worked!

    Ahh, Qatar! The role model of freedom. The place of slave labor, stonings, and floggings but only for severe infractions like drinking a beer. You showed us Ahmed!

    Yeah, but they really wanted a groundsweel of support from the American people. Their fundraising efforts on sites like Gofundme fell flatter than a pancake. Even with mainstream media support, they got CRAP.

    Don't forget the supporting of terrorists and running Al Jazeera.

    My God, i had no idea they started a funding page.
    For what?

    The kid disassembled a clock & put in what looked like a brief case.
    Even in the beginning, my initial reaction was, "Hmmm, not sure if this was done on
    purpose to illicit a response."

    I used to be very wide eyed and non suspicious.
    Now, i'm jaded as fuck.

    The kid just struck me as smug, during the aftermath.
    Maybe i'm reading too much into it.

    And the media's response of outrage really rubbed me the wrong way.

    Those poor educators are damned if they do, damned if they don't.
    Had the thing blown up, the response would have been:
    You idiot teachers, he showed you a ticking time piece in a pencil box!
    Does that resemble a clock to you?!!

    But the fact that it did not, they are now labelled islamaphobic or
    over reacting:

    These are our educators!???
    Poor Ahmed brought in this cool clock, what were they thinking?!!

    Look at the world we now live in?

    I'm with you. I thought that the school got a bunch of criticism and didn't deserve it. To me, it looked more like a PR move than anything else but the press made it sound like the kid was pulled out of class at gun point by the school principal.

    We haven't seen the last of innocent little Ahmed.

    We'll catch him on the battlefield somewhere down the line.
