Coventry - Muslim schoolboys threaten non muslim because he supports UK troops

This is the story reported on the coventrytelegraph.net website:
Coventry teenager abused on Facebook for writing war heroes tribute
A MUM has taken her son out of a secondary school in Coventry after he was abused on Facebook.
Clare Allington removed her son 13-year-old Darius Gill from Sidney Stringer Academy after he became the victim of cyberbullying on the social networking site.
Two year eight pupils at the school, believed to be 12-years-old, had threatened to attack him.

Messages posted online said a fight was being planned after school on Monday and pupils from other city schools even promised to join in.
The trouble arose after Darius, also in year eight, posted tribute images of British soldiers on Facebook in the lead up to Remembrance Sunday.
The bullies criticised him for siding with Britain and the USA against countries in the Middle
Darius was even too scared to wear a poppy to the Cox Street school for fear of more insults.
One of the messages reads: “Fight on monday gonna be heavy nuckle dusters nd knifes hopefully i dont die......” [sic]
Another says: “ill bang him ma slef am a terrorist.” [sic]
Darius’s mum, Clare, has pulled Darius out of the school, and two boys said to be responsible for the threats have been excluded.
Others who added to the comments will also be punished.
Darius claims the Facebook insults were the culmination of ongoing face-to-face bullying.
He is mixed-race, his father is Asian and his mother is white. He claims he was picked on for not being a muslim.

Clare, a mature student, of Hillfields, said: “I usually keep an eye on what Darius posts on Facebook.
"I have his password and usually check it every day but didn’t last weekend until I was at the Warwick University campus on Monday.
“I logged on and it broke my heart. I was reading all sorts about knuckle dusters, knives and death.
"They were planning to attack him at school that day so I rang the school straight away.”
One of the students even has photos on his Facebook page in which he is seen carrying a rifle.

Clare read some of the disturbing comments over the phone to a school official and was told to visit the school urgently.
Clare said: “It was all news to them....I took him out of school ... I don’t know when or if I will let Darius go back.
Wendy Tomes, Sidney Stringer Academy principal, says the school has taken appropriate action.
She said: “Two boys are going to be excluded until we are able to meet with the parents and resolve the issue.
“We will also be in contact with each and every pupil who also posted offensive comments to say they will not be allowed to return to school until they remove the comments from Facebook.
“What the children have done is out of order and unacceptable and we have taken the matter very seriously, taking prompt action as soon as we were made aware of it.

“We will be urging parents to monitor their children’s use of networking sites such as Facebook.”
She added: “As far as I’m concerned, racism isn’t an issue at this very diverse school.
“Students here learn to work with others of numerous cultures and that is a strength not a weakness.”



Notice how the report fails to mention these violent threats came from muslim children, and how the 'academy pricipal' (is that the same as a school headmistress?) still sticks to Labours policy of insisting racism doesnt exist and there is a wonderful multicultural environment that results in peace and joy, totally denying the reality of the situation, I wonder what her reaction would have been if it was non muslims threatening to kill the muslim children.


Now compare that report to this report from the Australian website news.com.au

Schoolboys threaten to kill classmate for supporting troops

TWO British Muslim boys have been excluded from school for posting Facebook death threats to a fellow pupil who praised UK and US soldiers.
The 12-year-old boys targeted 13-year-old Darius Gill, from Coventry, central England, because he posted a tribute to British and US soldiers, to coincide with the UK's annual day of memorial for members of the armed forces who died in conflict.
The boys threatened Darius with knives and knuckle dusters and one had posted a picture of himself holding a rifle. Other pupils from the school also added comments condemning Darius.
Darius, who has an Asian father and white mother, claimed the threats were the culmination of ongoing face-to-face bullying he has endured from the boys for not being Muslim.
Clare Allington, Darius’ mother, has taken her son out of the school, the Coventry Telegraph reported.
Allington, a mature student, said: “I usually keep an eye on what Darius posts on Facebook ... I logged on and it broke my heart.

"I was reading all sorts about knuckle dusters, knives and death. They were planning to attack him at school that day so I rang the school straight away.”
The school principal said: “Two boys are going to be excluded until we are able to meet with the parents and resolve the issue.

"We will also be in contact with each and every pupil who also posted offensive comments to say they will not be allowed to return to school until they remove the comments from Facebook."
