Egypt: Defining Terrorism

Egyptian blogger City Bird wrote the following post:

قالت مدرسة الرسم : ارسموا موضوعا عن الإرهاب
رسم الطفل هذا الرسم
قالت المدرسة : إيه الهباب اللي انت راسمه ده؟؟ إحنا عايزين ملتحين بيقتلوا الناس
The teacher asked the students to make a drawing about terrorism.
And one student drew the above drawing.
So she said: What the hell have you drawn? We want a drawing of people with beards killing innocent people.
