AVIGNON - A French mother is to appear in court after dressing her three-year-old son, whom she named Jihad, in a t-shirt with the words "I am a bomb" written across his chest.
A nursery-school teacher alerted the police when her pupil came into school wearing the t-shirt, with his name written on his back and "Born September 11" beneath it.

The mother has confirmed that little "Jihad" was in fact born September 11, 2009.
Contacted by La Provence newspaper, the mother said that she was "gob-smacked" that the incident had provoked so much controversy.
She told La Provence: "I didn't intend anything by it. The word 'bomb' is used in the sense that he is a beautiful kid, nothing more." (In French, 'bomb' is slang for 'hot stuff').
"If it has shocked anyone then I am sorry, but I really didn't mean anything by it. I am Muslim, but I am not a practicing one. I live a European lifestyle. It's just a simple phrase on a t-shirt, there's nothing dangerous about it," she said.
According to Le Parisien, which has published a photo of the young boy, the t-shirt was given to him as a present from his uncle.
The 32-year-old Muslim woman and the boy's uncle will appear in court in Avignon on December 19, where they may face a suspended prison sentence and a symbolic fine of one euros.

"If it has shocked anyone then I am sorry, but I really didn't mean anything by it. I am Muslim, but I am not a practicing one. I live a European lifestyle. It's just a simple phrase on a t-shirt, there's nothing dangerous about it,"



Seriously lady? How can you NOT see how this was going to go. I can't help but feel sorry for this kid, he doesn't deserve negative attention like this.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

If it's a "simple phrase", I'm sure she wouldn't mind most students going to school with t-shirts depicting the prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban, then? You know, nothing dangerous and all.

Have to agree.

This is beyond offensive, and maybe a quick investigation by child services would be in order, but not a criminal matter.

As the story notes she and the uncle are likely facing a suspended sentence (i.e. no jail time) and a symbolic fine of one Euro.

Regardless of the translation of the comment in French on the front of the t-shirt, this mother is either the most clueless egg incubator in the world or the most deliberately stupid. How can anyone alive in the world today not realize that what was written on that t-shirt would be sure to offend a great many people? And to put it on a three year old and send them off to nursery school in it is tantamount to child abuse.

Gotta agree with that. I guess I'm in the minority by saying I tend to believe her. Seems like an innocent mistake. Her punishment also seems to suggest the courts agree. Calm down toute le monde. The word offensive is used here to discribe what this three year old got up to. I don't find it even close to the offense I feel when I see much older youth in this country parading the F word around on their Ts. One even showed up at my mothers funeral wearing one. I went out to my car and got him a clean one to wear, the poor waif.

Jihad mean

People here even know what jihad means?


It means struggle, while kital/keetaal(my arabic is bad) means combat, and fight.

Example( english sentence with the arabic word, probably not the best, but i hope it will make sense) - It was a jihad(struggle) to control my road rage on way over here, because traffic was so bad.

My house was robbed last night and the robber and i engaged in kital/keetaal(fight/combat).

I hope this helped you and anyone else. I do not know arabic but from what I have listened to from Muslim scholars, I hope is is correct, and please forgive me if it isn't. I have no problem with his name, I'm sure there are many people named Jihad, but the shirt is really stupid.

EDIT - copy pasta error
