Muslim Foreign Exchange Student Sent Home After "Death to America" Threat

A Muslim student from Israel has been sent home after writing "Death to America" on a classroom board. He said it was a joke. Why aren't we laughing?

( When international exchange student Jawdat “J.D.” Kasab wrote “Death to America” on a board inside a Niceville High School classroom, he had no inkling of the havoc the phrase would cause.

It wasn’t a threat. It wasn’t a promise. It was just a joke, he said.

Jawdat, a Muslim, was sent back to his home in Israel on Friday evening after officials in the exchange program he was enrolled in told him he had been dismissed over the incident, which occurred about a month earlier.
