Westfield State class plans protest at West Spfld HS after 3 Muslim sisters said they were bullied
The Republican ^

Students at Westfield State University are planning to picket West Springfield High School to protest what three sisters called a pattern of anti-Islamic bullying by students and inaction by school officials.

The sisters – Najma, Hibo and Filsan Hussein, all of West Springfield - gave their account of verbal and physical abuse to a class at Westfield State taught by associate professor Kamal Ali, who is also vice president of the Islamic Society of Western Mass.

Following the session, more than 30 students signed up to stage a protest at the high school in the next few weeks, Ali said. “It’s a question of the day and time; we know the place,” the professor said.

...

School officials were aware of the bullying, and made periodic, if ineffectual, attempts to end it, the girls said.

“Their attitude was if the (headscarves) are the problem, then don’t wear them,” Najma Hussein said.

The hostility culminated in a fight in the school cafeteria between Filsan Hussein and another girl in March 2012 that led to assault charges being filed against Hussein in Springfield District Court.

The assault charge was eventually dropped, but related public disruption charges against the other two sisters are still pending, Ali said.

I got bullied in high school often because I was petite. So do I get to wallow in victimhood, too?

That you on your homepage?

You don’t look like you’d get bullied for long without delivering someone an attitude adjustment C.O.D.

Yup that’s me. I became tough by being bullied when I was young. It can build character :)

I agree with Vendrome - you don’t look like someone who’d take any crap. Those early experiences are valuable, if painful sometimes.

No evidence, of course. There never is.

Thanks matt04.
The sisters – Najma, Hibo and Filsan Hussein, all of West Springfield... “Their attitude was if the (headscarves) are the problem, then don’t wear them,” Najma Hussein said. The hostility culminated in a fight in the school cafeteria between Filsan Hussein and another girl in March 2012 that led to assault charges being filed against Hussein in Springfield District Court. The assault charge was eventually dropped, but related public disruption charges against the other two sisters are still pending, Ali said.
The problem is they need the ever-loving #### beaten out of them, and so do their parents, as well as the muzzie enablers in the school.

These wacko sisters are from Somalia....Only idiot do-gooders would allow in these wacko refugees from the nation that killed Americans as told in Black Hawk down. This country has been run by traitorous open borders low lifes in Washington DC

_____________________Najma, Hibo and Filsan Hussein are teenage Somali girls who were born in Kenya after their family of 16 fled war-torn Mogudishu and were resettled in there. They moved to Baltimore on October 2000, then to Holyoke and finally settled in West Springfield in 2004, attending local schools. The three sisters experienced religious, Islamophobic taunting and bullying in elementary school, middle school, and now high school triggered in response to the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Western Massachusetts is a conservative haven for most communities there. The 2012 race for state senate seat in the area resulted in the Republican Humasan beating the Democrat Bartley 3,361 to 491. But the progressives from the local universities are organizing against the residents with the usual left wing-islamic fascism.

Rugged individualist conservatives need to understand they have to organize. If they don't, they will be left with despotism and then civil war.

Yes... Unfortunately these three sisters are being exploited as victims by someone/a group with an agenda, rather than using the challenges to grow.
