Eight year old Mohammad entered his classroom on the
first day of school. "What's your name?", asked the teacher.
"Mohammad," he replied.
"You're in Finland now," replied the teacher. "So from now...
on you will be known as Mike." Mohammad returned home
after school. "How was your day, Mohammad?", his mother
"My name is not Mohammad. I'm in Finland and now my name
"Are you ashamed of your name? Are you trying to dishonor
your parents, your heritage, your religion? Shame on you!"
And his mother beat him.
Then she called his father, who beat him again. The next
day Mohammad returned to school. The teacher saw all of
his bruises. "What happened to you, Mike?", she asked.
“Well shortly after becoming a Finn, I was attacked
by two Muslims.”
