"[S]tudents got the wrong message"

[Posted by reader_iam]

No kidding.
Given the nature of the words (sample: "Allah help destroy this body of evil making humanity miserable") contained in the word-search worksheet assigned by a high school Spanish teacher, the following quote isn't particularly reassuring:
"When I made the assignment, I was upset and angry about a story I recently saw on the news. If any message appears, it is more of a message to myself, not to my students. I never meant to hurt or upset any students or parents," he [teacher Khalid Chahhou] said.
[Emphasis added.]

Words fail.
