Third-rate journalist Cindy Huang from the Capital Gazette Newspapers wrote an error-filled piece about a bomb threat at the Chesapeake Bay Middle School. Needless to say, she did not include my responses. Huang did not speak to parents or look into the threats posed by a seventh-grade student.

Last week a parent at the Chesapeake Bay Middle  School contacted me concerning a series of disturbing incidents in the classroom here, under the subject  line, “Bomb threat at my child school not being addressed.” A student claiming to be from Saudi Arabia was shouting:

“My name is Jafar,
I come from afar,
I have a bomb in my car
Allahu Akbar!
Allahu Akbar!”

This bully would taunt his classmates, pretending to use his cell phone as a gun that was equipped with accompanying gun noises. Read the parent’s email here.

Michael Dunn, the school principal, issued a statement from the school today here. He claims the school is handling it, but as the parent pointed out to me, “[Dunn] failed to mention the child was shouting Allah Akbar and also failed to address the child shooting people with his cell phone. And… I feel like he should have quoted school policy on what action is taken in general on these types of threats.”

Of course, the leftist running dogs in the media contacted me as soon as the principal copped a plea. Cindy Huang from the Capital Gazette wrote me. Huang did no investigation of her own. Huang did not speak to parents or look into the threats posed by this student. Instead, she wrote me this:

Your post on the middle school student who made a comment about Islam and a bomb reached local parents in Anne Arundel County. In the title and in the post, you say the student is Muslim.

You also said in the title that the Maryland Middle School did nothing.

School officials sent a letter out to parents saying the blog is erroneous. The student is not Muslim and is born in Maryland.

They also refuted the claim they did nothing, saying that they investigated the situation and disciplined the student.

Why didn’t you reach out to the school to check the claims before publishing the story?”

Here is our exchange and my answers:

I had the information that I posted on good authority from a parent who is closely involved with the school.

It’s her word against the principal’s. The mother has no reason to fabricate a story. The principal has every reason to cover up what happened if it happened the way she recounted to me.

I am monitoring the situation but see no reason as yet to retract my story.

Your post on the middle school student who made a comment about Islam and a bomb reached local parents in Anne Arundel County. In the title and in the post, you say the student is Muslim. You also said in the title that the Maryland Middle School did nothing.

GELLER: The parent reached out to me and detailed repeated complaints about the ‘allahu akbar’ threats and the chasing of other students with his menacing cell phone/gun noises. The parents said the school was non-responsive. And the child taunted the other students claiming he was from Saudi Arabia.

School officials sent a letter out to parents saying the blog is erroneous. The student is not Muslim and is born in Maryland.

GELLER: The parents were under the impression that he was. The menacing child said he was  from Saudi Arabia multiple times.  I did not report he was born in Saudi Arabia.

They also refuted the claim they did nothing, saying that they investigated the situation and disciplined the student.

GELLER: The parents disagree. And the school still hasn’t addressed the cell phone threats.

Why didn’t you reach out to the school to check the claims before publishing the story?

Geller: Because the parents said the school blew them off.

Here is the error-filled piece that third-rate journalist Huang ran. Needless to say, she did not include my responses.

Why would parents contact me, begging me for help, if the school had taken action?

“Principal dispels blog misinformation about a bomb threat,” By Cindy Huang (chuang@capgaznews.com)Capital Gazette, February 16, 2016:

The principal of Chesapeake Bay Middle School sent a note to parents Tuesday to correct misinformation spread by a national blogger about a student who repeated a limerick that referenced Islam and a bomb.

Pamela Geller, a critic of Islam, published a story online on Sunday titled “Muslim Student Makes Bomb Threat, Maryland Middle School Does Nothing.”

The article was tagged under the categories of “Islamization of public school” and “Jihad in America.”

The student was not Muslim, and the school investigated the incident Friday by talking to the teacher and students, according to the letter from principal Michael Dunn.

School officials learned about the incident Friday morning after reading an email from a concerned parent. Dunn said no students complained to school administrators about the incident and the teacher was not aware of the limerick.
Annapolis imam encourages Muslim support of community

Aamir Sheikh, an imam, or prayer leader, of the Islamic Society of Annapolis, led the Jumma prayer, the weekly service at the Makkah Learning Center in Gambrills.

School officials determined a student repeated the limerick that referenced a bomb, which is found online.

Dunn said there was no credible threat to students or teachers, but the student was disciplined. He declined to share details, citing student confidentiality.

According to Geller’s blog, a parent contacted her by email and told her the boy was from Saudi Arabia.

Dunn said in his note the student was born in Maryland.

School spokesman Bob Mosier said the blog was “misinformed at best,” adding the author did not contact school officials to verify the claims before publishing the story.

“That’s tremendously unfortunate,” he said.

Geller said she sees no reason to retract the story because it’s the parent’s account against the principal’s.

Dunn said in his note he’s received several emails from parents who read Geller’s story. Mosier said some people from outside Maryland also contacted school officials after the story was published, repeating erroneous information.

Rudwan Abu-rumman, president of The Anne Arundel County Muslim Council, said Geller is someone who “spreads hate for Muslims.”

He said he’s worried about the safety about a Muslim student in the school, who did not make the comments but was incorrectly referenced in the blog as the student who did.

He met with police officers Tuesday to discuss his concerns.

The parents contacted me — they had nowhere else to go. Huang’s smear journalism aims to stop parents from taking action to protect their children.

Shame journalism.

  • Whether the perpetrator is moslem or not, he’s indoctrinated as hell and a threat to other students – just in peace alone because as we know there is no peace allowed in Islam where there are unbelievers. However, at present there is No Choice but for parents to Homeschool their kids to keep them safe.

    • Steve

      That’s a good idea. Maybe some of these dumbass schools will change their attitudes when they see more people doing it.

      • Ron Cole

        All they want is the money.

  • Underzog

    Close the public schools down for trying to impose this Nazi like, Islamic ideology. They will try to slip it in at every level. And if they can’t close the schools down, they should take their children out of school and teach them themselves or get someone sympathetic to American values and knowledge to teach them. The school will never stop trying to push Islam down the childrens’ throats.

  • roger

    Cindy Huang says nasty, snarky things, not out of any genuine feelings for the school, its faculty or any student, but rather for the deep seated hatred leftists have for anyone voicing concern for Islamisation of the west , or anything that’s morally decent for that matter.
    And because she can.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Typical ditzy democrat tar paper blonde. People like her make me want to dye mine green, so as not to even look like her. Will look for a fake glasses, fake nose and moustache next time I go shipping. Just when I thought it was safe to remove the brown paper bag I had to wear for voting for idiots last provincial election…

      • roger

        yes, she is stereotypical.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Writers, like her is why the lame stream media is disappearing, it’s a good thing.

          • Steve

            Ben shapiro as squeaky as his voice can be to the ears does a nice job of revealing the liberal media, the acadumbia, and gollywood for their progressive brainwashing.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Need many more conservatives speaking in public.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Typical lame stream media, pandering to the lowest common denominator. How stupid can Cindy get? Muslims cannot be born in Maryland? Perhaps a few minutes with a dictionary would assist that community college drop out as to what journalism is supposed to be all about.
    Rudwan Abu-rumman, president of The Anne Arundel County Muslim Council, said Geller is someone who “spreads hate for Muslims”. Ok, please explain these quotes from the qur’an
    “Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement” and “Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks”.
    Does that sound like muslims love anyone?

    • roger

      There highly commendable hate, which is allowable and then there is tiny wincey slights against Muslims which is the severest kind of hate speech.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        As muslims are offended by everything, including other muslims, there is no way they can ever be placated. Best to trash them continuously, just so as they know what people really think of islam. Piss-be-upon-it. Which is not an insult as muhammud said to drink camel urine. “Narrated Abu Qilaba: “Anas said, “Some people of ‘Ukl or ‘Uraina tribe came to Medina and its climate did not suit them. So the Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of (Milch) camels and to drink their milk and urine (as a medicine). So they went as directed and after they became healthy, they killed the shepherd of the Prophet and drove away all the camels. The news reached the Prophet early in the morning and he sent (men) in their pursuit and they were captured and brought at noon. He then ordered to cut their hands and feet (and it was done), and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron, They were put in ‘Al-Harra’ and when they asked for water, no water was given to them.” Abu Qilaba said, “Those people committed theft and murder, became infidels after embracing Islam and fought against Allah and His Apostle . (Sahih Bukhari, Ablutions (Wudu’), Volume 1, Book 4, Number 234)”.

        • roger

          Well that was very charitable and merciful of Mo, I wouldn’t like to see him angry.
          All flowers and forgiveness.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            This is what muslims believe, lovely bunch are they not?

          • roger

            I’m not totally partial to them , I prefer peanut paste and cashews.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            True, muslims tend to be nut cases rather than useful nuts.

        • Steve

          I guess it goes to show there is accounting for taste when islamists are in control.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Muslims do as their demon (piss-be-upon-him) tells them too. Then violently force others to behave the same idiotic way.

    • Steve

      Christians should fight fire with fire. If ever caught off guard by one or some of the scumbags lie thoroughly (jesus will forgive you) and shout “Super size that allah man!” Then reach quickly for your concealed weapon and then add that you’ve changed your mind as you shoot them.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        That is the good part of being Catholic, confession. It is starting to look like they will have to instal revolving doors in confessionals.

        • Steve

          Yes, multicultural confessions.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            It will take more then a few mumbled prayers to atone for the crime of supporting multiculturalism.

  • Trevor Fortune

    Kid that wrote a story about killing his neighbours dinosaur was suspended from school, kid that chewed a pop tart in the shape of a gun was suspended from school, similar innocuous events have had police arresting little kids at school and taking them away in handcuffs, but if it’s a “clock” that just happens to look like the timer for a bomb, or if you actually assault other children by making threats and chasing after them pretending to have a weapon, well shut up islamaphobic or you might get beheaded.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Why do Americans put up with all this islamic stupidity?

      • Jonah

        Part of it is money that flows into the country in the form of ‘grants-bribes-etc.’ Another part is the belief by leftists that the muslims can be used as a weapon to help get rid of judeo/christian culture. A third part is multiculturalism that preaches that all beliefs are equal which flies in the face of facts.

        Another reason is the leftist teaching that all non-white people were/are oppressed by judeo/christian culture and it is time for both pay back via reparations and the removal of judeo/christian culture.

        • Dara Enriquez

          A;ll this is true but these are wrong beliefs and we should fight for truth.

      • Ron Cole

        Blo, grass, booze, tv, porn and as you nailed it – crass stupidity.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Decadence has taken its toll, too bad muslims don’t have brains, they could be degenerated too.

        • joe1429

          the voting age should be 21 not 18, as these kids do not have any idea of the real world. An exception can be made for the ones in the service

          • Ron Cole

            To quote Rush,
            “heads full of mush”.

        • Steve

          Ha ha. Good one. It looks like the girls i see all the time around town. The only thing you left out is the cell phone but she probably has one in her hand and the other on the wheel.

          How do you get the post to move the propeller?

      • Steve

        We’ve forgotten what freedom is really about- you have to fight for it sometimes!

        • Mahou Shoujo

          There is every indication that a fight is coming.

          • Steve

            Yes, I advise my friends at the office that the fight is coming but they still are not getting it. The pope will probably run for his safe room in another part of rome when the vatican is conquered andmade into a mosque. I’m sure then he’ll see what brotherly love is when all those leaders in the EU desert him and of course he’ll come running to the united states.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            The issue is that islam has very successfully exploited the self loathing angst of a secular society, turning it against itself. As islam has no qualms about violent enforcement of any of its ordinance’s pertaining to all aspects of life, when dhimmi democrat liberal socialists have served their purpose, they will be disposed of, not allowed to continue in their infidel ways.

          • Steve

            Yes, It seems that way about the self-loathing especially with the germans afraid to pick up arms again. Certainly the progressives are fueled in loathing toward the united states as the big bad enslaving imperialist without seeing any or the good things such as greatest benefactor of charity and technology to the world and defender of the EU and Pacific Countries during ww2 plus our legacy of freedom for all according to our constitution and declaration of independence.

            Islam seems to be exploiting the religious too i’ve noticed. Did you see the pope’s comments about trump and yet he lives behind walls as does israel? I’ve never seen anything in the bible outlawing walls for protection. Oh well, he doesn’t get out much except on world tours with his entourage and body guards.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Big anything is bad, religion, government, corporations, all eventually collapse under their own ponderous bulk. Islam, in its desperate colonization will fail as islam is a parasite, when it consumes its host, it dies. Europe is its last free lunch. Hussain and the u.n want to disarm America to facilitate its consumption by islam, that will not happen. Only the gullible europeans fell for the “government will protect you” lie. Europe and its failed “union” did not realize that a government that is strong enough to give you everything you want, it is strong enough to take everything you have. Germany, england and sweden, text book examples.

            That will be one of them.

    • Ron Cole

      Now that is one disgusting image.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        True, but it is the unvarnished ugly truth about democrats. To muslims, it is the will of the profit, after all, infidels girls are “uncovered meat”.

  • I thought that kids weren’t allowed to draw guns, much less doing something like the kid who mocked shooting with the audio of a gun!

    • Steve

      They are not but islamic kids are more than just kids they are the pc class. This kid is likely to get renamed mo’cell phone’med and be invited for a conference at the white house with the traitor.

  • conan_drum

    Why if the ‘moderate Muslims are integrated do they need a County Muslim Council?
    That shows they consider themselves separate from US society

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Here is a quote from the qur’an as to how muslims see themselves.

      Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book [Christians and Jews] had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors. (3:110)

  • vercingetorix

    In my opinion it realy looks like the school is doing a thourough cover-up here. What the imam of Anne Arundel county is saying does not matter much at all.

  • Owen_Morgan

    Never trust a “journalist”, like this Huang, who thinks “refute” is a synonym for “deny”.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      She is capable of thought?

      • Owen_Morgan

        Good point.

  • joker

    The boy is not a muzzrat but the local muzzrats are getting involved. Why? He was probably born in the US out of muzzrat parents from Saudi Arabia muzzrat land. It is quite simple.

    • Isabellathecrusader

      BINGO! Like usual, the Imam turns this from a story about an aggressive Muslim threatening non-Muslims and GETTING AWAY WITH IT into one about how mean everybody is to Muslims and how Muslims fear for their safety. Nonsense!

      Pamela Geller sticks up for Muslims more than anybody I know so it was deliberately disingenuous for Miss Cindy Huang to complain about Pamela writing about this without contacting the school when Cindy wrote her article without vetting the Imam.

      Cindy, you’re part of the problem, honey. But hey, I guess if it’s your kid’s school and you don’t mind Muslim kids making pretend threats that other Muslims have made good on and you prefer to stick your head in the sand and hope nothin’ goes boom, knock yourself out. I feel sorry for your kid, though. Using him/her as an excuse to write an inflammatory article to make a name for yourself is, well, kind of skanky.

    Screw the imam.
    Schools, just like the media morons cover up anything negative about islam.
    Islam sucks, is barbaric. If anglo saxons run their countries like muslims do hundreds of groups, the UN, etc would be giving the whites hell but since it’s muslims nothing is said about their barbaric ways.

  • Mr Paul Middleton

    Huang and the school principal are twisting themselves like pretzels in an attempt to carry water for Islamic jihad. When it all comes out, and Pamela’s correct, that won’t be reported, but will be a well kept secret. Stealth sharia.

    Did you say the journalist was from the National Enquirer? She obviously has no cred and is looking to make a name. So what are we going to call this kid now cellphone med and is he getting an invitation to the White House?
