His uncle was probably just being a good uncle when he spotted a T-shirt with the text: “I am a bomb” which probably meant to him, ”I’m great, special, good looking etc., and bought it for his nephew, Jihad, and had his name placed on the back. The school principle didn’t take to kindly to the over all message it could imply, and had him cover up with another shirt.
The school can’t be blamed for forcing him to wear something over the shirt, nor the child for wearing it, as well as the uncle for buying it for him. Who can be blamed for the incident however, are his coreligionists the world over for the invoking the interpretation of violent jihad and ample instances of their being connected with bombs, blood and mayhem.
NOTE: It’s the exact same with the keffiyeh, the Arab national scarf, now being known as “the nazi scarf”‘ the symbol of international Islamic terrorism.
