Great Advice

Don't Bring A Clock To School Unless It Looks Like a Clock

This does not look like a clock:

The money quote:
If Mohamed was a Christian, a Buddhist or a follower of Zeus, the school would’ve reacted in the same manner to his mysterious briefcase. 
But if Mohamed was a Christan, a Buddhist or a follower of Zeus, he wouldn’t be receiving any attention right now and his case would’ve been buried in the back pages of the local paper.

The reason why this particular teen is now a national story is because it fits a narrative. The chattering class wants to believe that middle America is an inhospitable place toward Muslims and followers of the Islamic faith are routinely discriminated against in our country.
To paraphrase Facebook's Zuckerberg on the subject: the future belongs to those who use claims of "Islamophobia" to advance their cause, be it leftist or Islamist.

Update: Who is this young my clock-looks-more-like-a-bomb-maker? Mark Steyn fills in his back story. The lad is
the son of a belligerent Muslim activist and perennial Sudanese presidential candidate whose brother runs a trucking company amusingly called Twin Towers Transportation.
Wow. That is amusing.

In an Islamist kind of way.

The kid didn't build this clock.

This is a 1980's style alarm clock, that he took out of its original case and put into his new box to look like a bomb.

His father is a Muslim lobbyist who has verbally attacked the city's mayor for preventing the establishment of a Sharia court in his city.

Sounds like a bit of purposeful payback to me.
