Who's the American?

From AgapePress:

A Kuwaiti Arab Muslim student is speaking out after his community college approved an article indirectly comparing him to Adolph Hitler.

Last semester, Foothill College political science professor Joseph Woolcock flunked Ahmad Al Qloushi and ordered him to get psychological treatment because he wrote a pro-American essay as his take-home final exam. Standing his ground on the essay, Al Qloushi explained that if it were not for U.S. intervention into Kuwait when he was younger, he would not have had the opportunity for furthering his education. "I owe America a lot of gratitude and debt, and I refuse to bad-mouth this country in any way," he said at the time. (See earlier article)

Woolcock filed a school grievance against Al Qloushi, charging him with intimidation and harassment for mentioning his name to the media.

Now comes word that the Foothill College Student Activities Office has approved an article that labels Al Qloushi "irrational" and accuses him of endangering Woolcock. The 17-year-old freshman says he cannot understand why the school would allow a "terrible personal attack" on him.

What in the world is going on with these people?!?

Maybe we should ask:
