KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) - Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and swords and beating drums, burned pictures of a British teacher Friday and demanded her execution for insulting Islam by letting her students name a teddy bear Muhammad.
Sudan's Islamic government, which has long whipped up anti-Western, Muslim hard-line sentiment at home, was balancing between fueling outrage over the case of Gillian Gibbons and containing it.
The government does not want to seriously damage ties with Britain, but the show of anger underlines its stance that Sudanese oppose Western interference, lawyers and political foes said. The uproar comes as the U.N. is accusing Sudan of dragging its feet on the deployment of peacekeepers in the war-torn Darfur region....
Aside from being a mean and cruel god, Allah is also a wimp god, if he has to whip and murder a sweet 54 year old women just for naming a teddy bear after his murderous, pedophile prophet! A similar incident happened in Judges 6:25-31. So Allah should take care of it himself if he is not to busy blowing up buildings with innocent people in them, meanwhile, I'll continue to worship the true God, Jesus Christ, who loved us so much he took our sins away, dying on the cross and rising again. He would never flog a sweet woman for naming a teddy bear after him, and would probably be honored if her heart was right. I pray she turns to Christ too. Incidently she was pardened by the president and is safely home in England. God had his hand in this one.
