Default Sudanese Protest, Call For British Teacher's Execution

Quote:


Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and knives, rallied Friday in a central square and demanded the execution of a British teacher convicted of insulting Islam for allowing her students to name a teddy bear "Muhammad."

In response to the protests, Gillian Gibbons was moved from the women's prison near Khartoum to a secret location, her chief lawyer Kamal al-Gizouli said shortly after visiting her to discuss the verdict.

"They moved this lady from the prison department to put her in other hands and in other places to cover her and wait until she completes her imprisonment period," he said, adding that she was in good health. "They want by hook or by crook to complete these nine days without any difficulties which would have an impact on their foreign relationship."

The protesters streamed out of mosques after Friday sermons, as trucks with loudspeakers blared messages against Gibbons, who was sentenced Thursday to 15 days in prison and deportation. She avoided the more serious punishment of 40 lashes.

In central Martyrs Square, outside the presidential palace, hundreds of riot police were deployed, although they did not try to stop the rally.
"Shame, shame on the U.K.," protesters chanted.

They called for Gibbons' execution, saying, "No tolerance: Execution," and "Kill her, kill her by firing squad."


Many protesters carried clubs, knives and axes — but not automatic weapons, which some have brandished at past government-condoned demonstrations. That suggested Friday's rally was not organized by the government.

A Muslim cleric at Khartoum's main Martyrs Mosque denounced Gibbons during one sermon, saying she intentionally insulted Islam. He did not call for protests, however.

"Imprisoning this lady does not satisfy the thirst of Muslims in Sudan. But we welcome imprisonment and expulsion," the cleric, Abdul-Jalil Nazeer al-Karouri, a well-known hard-liner, told worshippers.

"This an arrogant woman who came to our country, cashing her salary in dollars, teaching our children hatred of our Prophet Muhammad," he said.
Britain, meanwhile, pursued diplomatic moves to free Gibbons. Prime Minister Gordon Brown spoke with a member of her family to convey his regret, his spokeswoman said.

"He set out his concern and the fact that we were doing all we could to secure her release," spokeswoman Emily Hands told reporters.
Gibbons was arrested Sunday after another staff member at the school complained that she had allowed her 7-year-old students to name a teddy bear Muhammad. Giving the name of the Muslim prophet to an animal or a toy could be considered insulting.

The case put Sudan's government in an embarrassing position — facing the anger of Britain on one side and potential trouble from powerful Islamic hard-liners on the other. Many saw the 15-day sentence as an attempt to appease both sides.

OK you know what, I'm so sick and tired of being an open and accepting brother who doesn't say shit when people from other countries act foolish, but fuck them and they deserve to be executed for being so fucking ridiculous and outrageous. Douche bags.

Who deserves to be executed? The teacher who let her pupils name a teddy bear Mohammed?

Or the thousands of idiots living in the dark ages wanting to execute a human life over the name of a teddy bear?

They claim she has insulted and humilliated islam?

If anything they're the ones insulting their own religion and prophet.

Cos there's really likely to be a god out there who's that fuckin stupid....

I'm fairly sure if there's a god, he's got more important concerns than what people name their teddy bears. Like worrying about why people want other humans executed over such fuckin petty shit.
