The Massachusetts man charged with conspiring in a terror plot has been a middle school math and religion teacher at a Muslim school in Worcester.
Colleagues at the Alhuda Academy say they cannot believe the allegations against Tarek Mehanna (TEH'-rek meh-HAH'-nah), who was arrested Wednesday and charged in conspiring to support terrorism. They say he was a sweet guy and loved by his students.

uh huh . . . .
This is a problem.
This is such poor reporting. Where is this guy from? Where was he born? Yes, they tell us his dad is a pharmacy prof. But tell us more about the suspect. Please!
Probably true, but the call to jihad is heard by the sweet guys as well as the not so sweet. Planning something like this is not a matter of being mean or not sweet, but a matter of believing Islamic teachings and following the examples of those who've come before.
they are probably future jihadists.
Terrorists teaching at madrasas? Never!
