Teen’s Sensitivity Training – For Touching Hijab

From the Chicago Tribune:

Muslim women (from left) Amneh Noubani, 19, Aziza Nassar, 19, and Hadeel Khater, 17, meet with David Huffman, 18, of Tinley Park, on Aug. 25, 2006, near the Bridgeview mosque as part of a unique court-ordered sensitivity training with the Council on American Islamic Relations. Huffman was arrested in Tinley Park for pulling a Muslim woman's headscarf off her head.

'Prank' gets teen lesson in tolerance

Displacing a Muslim woman's scarf leads to sensitivity training

David Huffman told police it was just a prank gone wrong: On April 22, at a McDonald's in Tinley Park, he tapped a Muslim woman on the head, nearly pulling off her headscarf.

The woman, a young mother with her children, didn't see it as harmless. She was scared and embarrassed; her faith had been attacked. She told police, and they called it battery.

But in a surprising twist, a Cook County circuit judge did not fine or jail Huffman, who pleaded guilty. He was instead ordered to undergo sensitivity training at the downtown Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation's largest Muslim civil rights organization.

During the past three months, Huffman, 18, has spent 40 hours listening to and talking with Muslims across Chicagoland. He has completed required tasks that seemed ripped from reality television: watching Muslim youths play basketball, attending a 9/11 event and visiting area mosques, which Huffman called "synagogues" at the beginning of his training

Mr. Huffman was arrested for "touching" a headscarf? How long before we are all sent to Muslim re-education camps?

And to have the America-hating terrorist enablers at CAIR should be the people doing the indoctrination?

[H]er faith had been attacked…
