Last week the news featured a young elementary school girl who reported being attacked on the sidewalk by a scissor wielding white man who slashed her hijab (now I know I probably spelled that wrong but if you read it the way I spelled it, it will sound right). Her little brother was there when it happened and reported how scared he was for his sister. Her mother made an appearance as well with her face covered with what to me anyway appeared to be a jerry rigged face cover. Anyway, everyone was righteously indignant for this littler girls sake and even the Prime Minister weighed in. Well, it turns out, the whole thing was a fabrication (polite term for telling a whopper). Now more questions arise in my mind. Was this just a childish prank or something more sinister? Was the mother involved? One thing for sure....this did not do the Muslim community any good.
