Skip to comments.Muslim student pitches a fit over these awesome Halloween costumes [school agrees with student]

A controversy has broken out at Washington University in St. Louis over a Facebook photo apparently showing five students dressed up for Halloween as a Navy SEAL team capturing Osama bin Laden with garish neon water guns.
The photo was originally posted on Facebook on Oct. 30 with the title Halloween 13 Amurrica!! reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The photo shows three dudes in camouflage attire surrounding a kid also in camo garb who is sporting a long, fake beard and turban. Theres also a guy in the background holding up an American flag.
Washington University student Mahroh Jahangiri later objected to the photo because she views mimicking the American militarys killing of Osama bin Laden as a hateful Muslim stereotype.
As a Muslim-American who has been subjected to taunts of dirty paki and get the fuck out of WU and America on this campus, the reasons why this photo are offensive are painfully obvious and represent a broader, more aggressive (and apparently violent) Islamophobia rampant here at WashU and in the United States, Jahangiri has explained on her Facebook page.
This is disgusting and cannot be tolerated on this campus.
School officials at Wash. U. have sided earnestly with Jahangiri.
No fewer than three high-ranking functionaries at the school including the chancellor, Mark S. Wrighton, signed a statement saying they are disappointed and saddened about the awesome Halloween stunt, notes the Post-Dispatch. The statement called the image entirely inconsistent with who we are as an institution, our values and the way in which we engage in the world around us.

Yes this photo is offensive. Water guns aren’t going to do anything to him. Proper firearms like an AK-47 should have been used.
I didn't click the link so I didn't see that load of horse apples before. This beotch is an "activist." I wonder what cell she's active with?
Send in the ATF!
So, Mahroh. If you dislike the United States so much, why did you — or was it your parents? — come here?
I marvel at the chutzpah of moslems who profess to hate the west in general, and the United States in particular, yet come over in droves. Since they hate us so much, and clearly do not want to assimilate, they must be coming for another, insidious reason. And I think we know what that is.
dirty paki??? Seriously?
Interesting, American frat boys in the Midwest using British slang.
Camel jockey, dune coon, haji, Jackie the Iraqi, Arab (pronounced “A”-rab), Jawas, bad guys, goat humpers, sand n***ers, etc etc. the slurs used by grunts are endless, entertaining, usually racial rather than political... But what American calls them a “Paki”?
That’d be about as American as referring to a Pakistani as “Asian”. The girl is making my Pinocchio meter register some lies.
They came here to turn the US into a Muslim country.
look at the facebooks groups she subscribes to
we need to stop giving visas to any non-Christian middle easterners . We do not need them or their beliefs in our country , infesting our society .
They need to remain in their own countries , educate there and practice their militant feminist islamicism there .
Good luck !
> School officials at Wash. U. have sided earnestly with Jahangiri.
Uh, er,...they meant sidestepped a lawsuit by iding with JahNgiri
Apparently, Jahangiri had no coments about the treatment of Christians in Pakistan and other Moslem majority nations.
“Eff you, Jahangiri, and the islamists you rode in with.”
And the goats you rode in on.
The only reasons the Muslim student would be offended are if she (1) admired Bin Laden and (2) viewed him as a representative Muslim.
Her Facebook page is “temporarily” down. Probably the NSA giving her an assist on behalf of the WH...
“Paki, a derogatory term for a person from South Asia (particularly Pakistan), mainly used in the United Kingdom”
I didn’t realize St Louis was so culturally British. My bloomer, don’t I feel the prat? Gobsmacked I am.
There will never be enough antipathy for Islam in this country to suit me. No Muslim will ever be my countryman. I’ll never trust one...ever. Islam is the mortal enemy of Western civilization and has been for nearly fourteen centuries. There will never be a peaceful coexistence.
What this student has confirmed is that Osama is actually mainstream Islam, not the fringe minority they want us to believe. He is a valid, valued, model example of a Mooselimb, and that is why she is offended, and the faculty agrees. So can we stop pretending now that there is any difference between her, Osama and all the others?
