"When in Rome…" no longer applies? Muslim student teased for wearing a bag on her head

Taunts of “bomb baby,” “terrorist” and “towel head” followed her into the seventh grade as Xelina Encarnacion began wearing a ‘hijab’ (Muslim headbag) to school in upstate New York.

When a boy pulled her hijab Wednesday, Xelina retaliated, landing in detention after chasing him down and hitting him. “I felt violated,” she said. “I felt like I didn’t deserve it, because I was protecting myself.

"The Qur'an says, "Take not Christians and Jews as friends"

The insults first came in fifth grade, in hallways, classrooms and the school bus that carried her between her Loch Sheldrake (not far from the Islamberg terrorist training camp) home and Tri-Valley Elementary School

The Tri-Valley Central School District said two students accused of taunting Xelina were harshly punished this week. Her parents say the call telling them their daughter was serving detention was the latest insult after repeated complaints to school officials.

“Instead of a call to say we resolved the situation, it’s one to tell us our daughter’s in detention,” Samuel Encarnacion said. “Yes, hold her accountable for behavior unbecoming of a student. But rectify the situation that causes her to act that way.”

Tri-Valley Superintendent Thomas Palmer said  “The district suspended two students in response and met with their parents,” “They were harsh punishments,” he said. “It wasn’t just a small slap on the wrist.”

Palmer said he also asked district staff to investigate more incidents and is considering diversity sessions for students and a survey of the schools’ “temperature.” (Oh here we go, instead teaching foreign students to fit in with American culture, they will force American kids to be indoctrinated with Islamic culture)

Samuel Encarnacion, president of the Masjid Ahlis Sunnah Islamic Information Center in Liberty, says the name-calling reflects anti-Muslim rhetoric engendered by 9/11. (Not to mention all the other terrorist incidents involving Muslims here)

More than 200 Muslim families live in the Liberty area, and they are wary in public, Samuel Encarnacion said. He worries that continued abuse will make his daughter so despondent that she considers harming herself. “She comes home and she’s so depressed,” he said. Times Herald
